4. Description of Bulk Buy It freight comparison service

We provide a service which enables you to compare a number of prices for delivery services and book a delivery based on those comparisons. There is no charge for this service.  We receive a commission from the freight companies when you use our service to purchase services from them.

Please note that we are in no way involved in the contract for the sale of any delivery services offered on our site. The resulting legal contract is between you and the freight company, and is subject, in addition to these Terms & Conditions, to the terms and conditions of the freight company.

5. Compare delivery prices and select a service

To compare delivery services, enter a collection post code and a delivery post code anywhere in the EU, along with the pallet size and weight of the shipment and other relevant information such as whether it is a hazardous product, if the collection or delivery address requires a tail-lift, if the collection or delivery address is a residential address, and our site will provide you with all the comparable prices and services available for you to select, with the cheapest being at the top.

We do not control and are not responsible for the price, length of offers, or special conditions relating to price comparison quotes. These are set by the freight companies. Please ensure you read the terms and conditions of the relevant freight company which are available to view by clicking through the links contained on our website to the relevant freight company’s website. Freight companies’ prices, rates and offer times are updated and amended by the freight companies on a regular basis and may be withdrawn at any time so our price comparisons are subject to change.  We are not responsible for any pricing errors.

Nothing in these terms shall limit our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or the negligence of our agents or employees. You agree not to hold us responsible for things other Members post or do.

In no event do we accept liability of any description for the listing of any unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene or indecent information, or material of any kind which violates or infringes upon the rights of any other person, including without limitation any transmissions constituting or encouraging conduct that would constitute a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable law.

Accordingly, to the extent legally permitted we expressly disclaim all warranties, representations and conditions, express or implied, including those of quality, merchantability, merchantable quality, durability, fitness for a particular purpose and those arising by statute.

If you are a business user, we are not liable for any loss, whether of money (including profit), goodwill, or reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising out of your use of the Site, even if you advise us or we could reasonably foresee the possibility of any such damage occurring. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.

Despite the previous paragraph, if you are a business user and if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or any third party (whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability in tort, by statute or otherwise) is limited to the greater of (a) the total fees you pay to us in the 12 months prior to the action giving rise to liability, and (b) 100 Pounds Sterling.

If we fail at any time to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under these Terms & Conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under them, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.

A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default.

No waiver by us of any of these Terms & Conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing.

If any of these Terms & Conditions are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
