Carbon Balanced

AnyVan makes the most of existing journeys to use as little fuel as possible, but while we massively reduce our carbon footprint through route matching, our vans still produce CO2, just like the others.

Our ambition is for AnyVan to be the greenest way to move on the planet, so we’ve teamed up with World Land Trust to balance all the CO2 our vans produce, by protecting and restoring threatened tropical forests each and every time we move.

  2. 2.40.1 honour a transaction contract formed with a Buyer;
  3. 2.40.2 provide the services for which payment was accepted; and
  4. 2.40.3 include all taxes, including VAT, and fees payable by the Buyer for the transport services in any Bid, excluding any import or export duty payable on the goods transported.
  5. 2.41 Suppliers must not:
  6. 2.41.1 bid against their own Bid, or have associates, or employees do so;
  7. 2.41.2 significantly misrepresent their services by not meeting the terms and services description outlined in the Bid;

  9. 2.41.4 attempt to contact Buyers directly or make their business identity or contact information available to Buyers by the use of photographs, images, text or logos. In the event of a transport provider bypassing the website, or placing fabricated bids in attempt to avoid website fees, Anyvan reserves the right to charge the equivalent to what the fee should have been based on the agreed amount. If no bid has been placed or price agreed, Anyvan will determine the deposit/fee price based on Anyvan market value. In addition, Anyvan will charge a £10 administration fee on all transactions.
  10. 2.42 All Transport Providers must hold relevant insurance documents, allowing them to operate legally within their relative locations and carrying the goods quoted for. We reserve the right to spontaneously check with third party insurance companies, and our partners GoodsinTransitDirect.co.uk, to whether operators still hold valid insurance policies and licenses.

23. Rules for Buyers

Buyers must not:

  1. 2.43 Submit their own bids to decrease Bids made by Suppliers. Users bidding for the provision of services must be wholly independent from the Buyer of those services.
  2. 2.44 Neither Buyers nor Suppliers may interfere with a transaction or offer to buy or supply transport in response to a Buyer's Listing outside of the Site.

  2. 2.46 For each transaction, Buyers and Suppliers can choose to rate each other by leaving Feedback. Buyers and Suppliers can leave a positive, negative, or a neutral rating, plus a short comment.
  3. 2.47 These ratings are used to determine Feedback Scores. In most cases, Users receive:
  4. 2.47.1 +1 point for each positive rating
  5. 2.47.2 No points for each neutral rating
  6. 2.47.3 -1 point for each negative rating
  7. 2.48 Suppliers are not permitted to include in their Bids or terms of sale any conditions that limit or restrict the Buyer from leaving feedback.
  8. 2.49 Buyers are not allowed to threaten Suppliers with negative feedback or neutral Feedback in order to obtain goods or services not included in the original Buyer Listing.
  9. 2.50 Suppliers may not require Buyers to leave specific feedback. Suppliers may not demand that Buyers withdraw existing feedback. These prohibitions apply to all feedback activity, whether prior to, during, or after delivery of services described in the original Buyer Listing.
  10. 2.51 Feedback comments must comply with rules on feedback listed on the site. AnyVan reserve the right to remove or modify feedback left by either the buyer or supplier without prior consent of either parties.
  11. 2.52 Reputation score is a score based on Buyer feedback from previous jobs, representing the trustworthiness of a Supplier on a scale of 0 to 100.
  12. 2.52.1 The reputation score of Suppliers is calculated via a formula rounded to the closest integer. This formula to round means 100 multiplied by a fraction, where the numerator is the total number of positive feedbacks since launch, and the denominator is the total number of negative feedbacks added to the total number of positive feedbacks since launch, as per the last updated score. This rule applies if a provider has less than 20 pieces of feedback.
  13. 2.52.2 If at last reputation score update time the total number of positive and negative feedbacks left on the specific Supplier between last reputation score update time and 12 months before last reputation score update time were not less than 20, we calculate a more up-to-date reputation score until the next update. We calculate Reputation Score from a rounded formula. This formula to round means 100 multiplied by a fraction, where the numerator is the total number of positive feedbacks between last reputation score update time and 12 months before last reputation score update time. The denominator is the total number of negative feedbacks added to the total number of positive feedbacks both between last reputation score update time and 12 months before last reputation score update time.
  14. 2.52.3 A reputation score cannot exceed 100 of which if the figure is calculated as a decimal it will be rounded down to 99 if any Buyer left a negative feedback on that particular Supplier between last reputation score update time and 12 months before last reputation score update time. If a supplier has completed more than 20 jobs over a period of 12 months negative feedback will be reflected within the percentage as per the last feedback update.

25. Fees

  1. 2.53 The Site is free to use for Buyers. A deposit fee (Deposit) is payable by a Buyer when a bid is accepted. The Deposit amount payable is deducted from the total value of the bid displayed to the Buyer upon acceptance. The outstanding balance due is to be paid by the Buyer directly to the Supplier in accordance with the terms and in a manner as agreed between both parties.
  2. 2.54 The deposit is a percentage of the transportation costs agreed between the two parties or a minimum fee, whichever is greater (dependent upon external factors, i.e. source of listing).
  3. 2.55 We may voluntarily waive our right to receive a Deposit in certain circumstances, but any such waiver is entirely discretionary and without accepting any legal obligation to do so.
  4. 2.56 On accepting any Bid the Buyer must pay the Deposit to AnyVan. We receive this Deposit as agent for the Buyer.
  5. 2.57 Suppliers are responsible for the collection and payment of all VAT associated with the supply of services to Buyers.
  6. 2.58 We may suspend, waive or change the method of calculation or rates of Fees at any time, either permanently or for any limited promotional or other period. Any changes will be described on the Site.

26. Cancellation

  1. 2.59 Transport contracts are formed between Buyers and Suppliers so the negotiation and agreement of any cancellation and its consequences are matters for them. However, if the transport company cancels before any transport services has been provided the customer can then wish to recover their Deposit or Fee by making a request to us for repayment. No request should be made within 7 days of the date of acceptance of the Bid or until reasonable attempts have been made to agree the terms of cancellation directly.
  2. 2.60 We will review all cancellation requests. If appropriate the cancelled transport requirement will be relisted on the Site or deleted from it. The Deposit or the Fee may be refunded at our sole discretion. Any request for a refund of the deposit fee paid should be made within 30 days of the acceptance of the bid. Anyvan cannot be liable for requests outside this timeframe. No cash refund will be provided once the buyer has received the contact details of the Supplier via AnyVan. In the event that the Suppler in unable to fulfil its obligations as booked then the buyer must contact AnyVan to find an alternative Supplier, only in the event that AnyVan is unable to find an alternative will credit be considered.
  3. 2.61 In some circumstances, when a job is listed as flexible and the buyers job is not completed within a maximum of 1-2 weeks dependant on the selected, the listing will be removed and the prepaid deposit refunded as credit.

"Beat" would infer offering a cheaper price than the external supplier; however small a reduction.
  6. 3.07 External quotes must include (if applicable); shipping fees, transportation costs, labour costs, storage fees, UK and European taxes, toll fees, packing and unpacking fees, loading prices, dismantlement and reassembly prices and unplanned additional costs. These must have been placed by a registered UK delivery company or owner operator; holding the relevant Goods in Transit Insurance policy or equivalent. We only offer the option of Price Guarantee up to a maximum job value of £300 (inclusive of the above).
  7. 3.08 The Best Price Guarantee only applies to prices both advertised and available to the general public or on a website directed at consumers in United Kingdom. For example, this is exclusive of rates offered on membership programme websites; corporate discounts or rates; group, charters; rewards programmes; incentives; consolidator or interline prices; prices obtained via physical auction, charity or similar process; or prices available only by using a coupon or other promotion not offered to the general public. The rate must be quoted and bookable in the same currency (GBP) as your AnyVan.com listing. In addition to this, price-match requests must be considered to reasonably cover the overall cost price of a job by governmental and industrial standards; minimum wage per hour, plus cost of petrol - both relative to distance and time.
  8. 3.09 All requests for the best price guarantee are subject to verification by AnyVan.com. We will not accept screenshots or other purported evidence of a lower price that we cannot independently confirm. Nor will we verify or fulfill any request that we believe, at our sole discretion, is the result of a printing or other misleading error, or is made fraudulently or in bad faith. The request date, when referring to a general or furniture delivery listing, will need to be requested with at least seven working days prior to the requested pickup date; whereas a house move listing should be requested fifteen working days prior to the requested pickup date - both excluding UK bank holidays.
  9. 3.10 We reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify or discontinue the best price guarantee or to restrict its availability to any person, at any time, for any reason, and without prior notice or liability to you. The terms on the AnyVan.com website will determine your eligibility under the best price guarantee. Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms & Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. The terms of the Best Price Guarantee are governed by English law.
