Cancellation Policy 

You are able to cancel or re-schedule your service free of charge up to 24 hours before the start time. Less than 24 hours notice will unfortunately result in a 25% cancellation fee. If you cancel your service within 60 minutes of the start time, you will then be subject to a 50% cancellation fee.

 

Delayed Or Failed To Arrive Policy

If in the unfortunate case we cannot make your appointment due to unforeseen circumstances and cannot re-schedule you in at another time in that working day then we will offer you a couple options, the first option available is to re-schedule your appointment to another free time slot or the second option available is to cancel your appointment and be given a complete refund.

 

 Estimated times for our arrival and completion may be provided through our online booking and services pages, however these are only estimates. We shall try to inform you on the day of our expected arrival via phone, sms or email. We do not guarantee that orders will be completed within the estimated times.

If we are delayed or are expecting to arrive late by more than 10 minutes from the start time of your appointment then we shall try to contact you and inform you of this delay, if we are delayed and expect to arrive over 60 minutes late from the original start time of your appointment then we will contact you, inform you of the issues and then offer one of the three options. The first option is to carry on with the appointment if viable to both you and the mobile valet, the second is to offer you the ability to re-schedule your appointment for another free time slot, the third option being a full refund.

Extreme/Bad Weather

With our service being a mobile one where we primarily work outside, we are at the weather's mercy. Whilst we will try our best to work in whatever conditions are thrown at us, the point at which the quality of work drops below our standards due to the weather is the point we will stop and try to come up with a solution to get around this issue with you. Typically, if you have a garage or some kind of shelter where your vehicle can be safe and placed into, and we can get our van to within our working distance of your vehicle, then we can continue with your service.  In the extreme circumstances where this isn't possible, we will either allow you to reschedule the service for another time or cancel the service and get a partial or full refund, which will be dependent on how much work has been carried out prior to us having to stop due to the extreme conditions.

If there is severe weather forecast before we arrive for your service, and we deem it to be unworkable, then we will notify you and let you know what further actions you can take. The two options you have are to either reschedule the service for another time, or you can cancel the service and get a full refund. 

The mobile valet fails to locate your vehicle

If the mobile valet fails to locate you or the vehicle they are scheduled to work on, they will try to contact you, if successful, and you give them new direction they will try again to locate you and the vehicle. If you have provided incorrect details as to the whereabouts of the vehicle, and as a result we have to travel a distance greater than a mile from the original location given to us to begin working on it, you will be charged a fee for us to relocate to you and your vehicle. This will be coordinated to you through Motoiva. 

 

In the case where you do not answer the mobile valet or attempt to communicate to the mobile valet or Motoiva the whereabouts of you or your vehicle, the mobile valet will wait at the location you provided us, the mobile valet will wait there for up to 30 minutes. If you turn up late for your appointment or delay it by more than 10 minutes due to these circumstances, then you will be subject to additional fees that will be coordinated to you by Motoiva. If you & the vehicle we have scheduled for a service still fail to show up after 30 minutes, and the mobile valet has tried to contact you at least 3 times on the details that you have provided. The mobile valet will leave that location, and you will not be given any refund. 

 

If your vehicle's engine is warm and unsafe to work on

On our arrival if the mobile valet discovers during the initial inspection of your vehicle that the engine is warm and above the limits that we deem safe to carry out a service to your vehicle they will wait until the engine has cooled down enough for them to safely carry out our service to your vehicle, if we are required to wait for over 10 minutes before your engine cools down there will be an additional charge for our time, or in extreme circumstances where the engine is so warm and the length of time it takes to cool down to be safe for the mobile valet to carry out the services on your vehicle results in the mobile valet running late for other customers that have booked our services than the mobile valet will leave and not perform the service. You the customer will not receive a refund for this service you have purchased, but you will be able to reschedule your service for another time. There will be a compulsory fee which sums to 25% of the total price of the original service you purchased. All additional fees and re-bookings will be coordinated between you the customer and Motoiva.

Price adjustment of the service and refusal to carry out the service by the mobile valet

The mobile valet reserves the right to charge an additional fee or refuse to complete the services paid for, subject to an inspection of the car before the work begins. Excessively dirty cars may incur a surcharge. You will be informed at the time and any surcharge will be coordinated by Motoiva. If the mobile valet refuses to clean your car and has reasonable grounds to justify it such as they might be exposed to any hazardous materials or anything that presents a threat to the health and well-being of that individual, then you the customer will be informed, and you will not be eligible for a refund of that service.
