How Up To Date Are Your Terms And Conditions?
Rushed off your feet trying to keep on top of all the work that a commercial passenger transport operation requires, it can be a sobering and distinctly uncomfortable experience to discover that the terms of a particular hire are not what you, the operator, thought they were or wanted them to be!
Perhaps surprisingly, many operators discover to their cost that the agreement that they had thought that they had entered into is not the one that they actually signed. Indeed many operators enter into agreements without even reading the “small print” believing that their terms of hire apply, only to find that this is not the case.
Wherever possible operators should be accepting contracts under their own terms and conditions which are tailor-made to their own requirements and which properly set out their liability if something should go wrong.
In an increasingly litigious society, the days of a “one size fits all’ approach to commercial contracts have passed by the wayside and passenger transport operators are best advised having terms of hire that suit their businesses and which they have read carefully, understood, and approved.
Properly drafted a transport operator’s terms and conditions can prove to be a valuable asset, offering clarity to both sides and appropriate protection where it is needed. Because Pellys Transport & Regulatory Law specialise in road transport law, we can provide your business with PSV terms of carriage to suit your businesses needs accompanied by advice to make sure that it is your terms & conditions which apply in the event of any dispute.
