WITH THE SERVICES

If you have any questions or complaints about the services, please contact us within 24 hours from receiving your cleaned, altered or tailored items from us. You can contact us by telephoning our consumer service team at 02038131793 or by writing to us at enquiries@pickandrop.co.uk.

If you have made a complaint and we have responded, you must follow up our response within two weeks or we will close the complaint and you will no longer have a valid claim.

10.3 Re-cleaning policy
If you are not 100% satisfied with the quality of our services, we will re-clean and/or re-press your item free of change if we are notified within 24 hours of collection. The item will need to be unworn, returned in the original packaging and with our tags still attached. If we suspect that the item has been worn, we reserve the right to refuse to re-clean or re-press the item. If an item is re-cleaned because a stain has not been removed in the first clean, the re-clean will be done “at owner’s risk” as we will have to use a stronger method to attempt to remove the stain, which could result in discolouration.

We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of services advised to you are correct. However please see clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the services you order.

However please see clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the services you order.

11.2 What happens if we got the price wrong.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the service’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the service’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated in our price list, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

11.4 When you must pay and how you must pay
You must make an advance payment of the full price of the Services, before we start providing them. We do not accept payment cheque payments or £50 notes. For delivery orders, payment must be made using credit/debit card before the item is delivered (we do not accept cash payments for deliveries. We will ask you to register your credit/debit card details on our system (which is encrypted) so that we can take the payment at each collection.

12. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR
LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU

12.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable
loss and damage caused by us

In the unlikely event of damage, please inform us within 24 hours of receipt of your cleaned item from us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the exchange process.
Please ensure to thoroughly check all garment’s pockets for items such as pins, jewellery, coins, pens, buttons etc. as we cannot be held responsible for any item lost, or for any garment damage caused by personal items left in a pocket.

12.2 If we cannot agree who is responsible for loss and damage
We will seek an independent analysis by a fabric care research laboratory (for example http://www.satra.co.uk). The fabric care research laboratory shall act as an expert and not as an arbitrator and its written determination shall be final and binding on you and us in the absence of manifest error or fraud. The cost of obtaining the fabric care research laboratory’s analysis shall be borne as the fabric research laboratory directs.

12.3 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so
This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the services as summarised at clause 10.3.

12.4 When we are liable for damage to your items
Any item that you wish to complain about must be returned unworn or unused with the original packaging that the item was collected in; failure to do so will invalidate any potential complaint/claim. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your item that we discover while providing the services. We are not responsible for inherent weaknesses or defects in materials (for example, sun fading on curtains or colour runs below armpits due to deodorant) which may result in tears or the development of small holes or stains in fabric that are not readily apparent prior to processing.

12.5 Maximum liability
Subject to clause 12.2, our liability to you arising under or in connection with this agreement, whether arising in contract, tort (including negligence) or restitution, or for breach of statutory duty or misrepresentation shall be limited to the lesser of:

• 10x the price you have paid for cleaning that item; or
• the depreciated value of the item as determined by the Fair Compensation Guidelines as provided by the Textile Services Association.
For the avoidance of doubt, we will only be liable for the damaged item. For example, if there is damage to trousers that are part of a suit, only the trousers can be subject to compensation (and not the whole suit).
If any compensation is agreed, then the items will not be returned but will be given to charity.

12.6 We are not liable for items cleaned at “owners’ risk”.
The following items shall be cleaned at “owners’ risk”:
• items with no care label;
• leather;
• suedes;
• furs;
• items containing any suede, leather or fur (eg. elbow patches);
• suede and leather garments or accessories (including handbags and shoes);
• belts, buckles, buttons and hoods;
• any ink marks left behind by our poly-marking label system;
• any item that you have agreed to be handled “at owners’ risk”; and
• we will not be responsible for colour loss, colour bleeding, shrinkage or damage to weak and tender fabrics.

14.4 Service times will vary according to the item, and longer service times may apply.

14.5 Your scheduled slot for delivery is an estimate only and due to circumstances beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that your items will be delivered or collected within a scheduled slot. We will endeavour to keep you informed using the contact details with which you have provided us, and using email, text message or telephone.

14.6 Should we be unable to deliver or collect your items by our estimated delivery date, we aim to deliver or collect your items the next business day.

14.7 In the event you will not be available during our scheduled slot for delivery or collection, you must inform us as soon as possible and in any event not less than twelve hour before your scheduled delivery slot. We will endeavour to arrange another mutually convenient time for delivery with you and, depending on the value of your order, this may be subject to any additional charges.

14.8 For areas with East London, we offer a free collection and delivery service for orders totalling £30 and above. Should the order total be less than £30, a fee of £10 will be charged.

14.9 If the delivery driver attempts to collect / deliver during your scheduled time slot, and there is no response, or the driver is unable to gain access to your premises, we will contact you to organise a second collection or delivery and we will have to charge a £5 failed collection/delivery fee.

14.10 We reserve the right to refuse or cancel an order if there is any reason to suspect our staff may be at risk of physical or verbal abuse, or if there have been repeated difficulties in attempting to make a delivery or collection, or if there are difficulties in accessing a customer’s premises.

14.11 Where a delivery driver is required to make a collection or delivery above the third floor of a building, and there is no access by lift either temporarily or permanently, we reserve the right to decline the collection or delivery. Customers are advised to contact us if they foresee any difficulties in the driver gaining access to their property. We will endeavour to assist customers wherever practically possible but cannot guarantee we will be able to do so.

contract, we can still enforce it later

If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things or prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
