Cancellations & Postponements

Accepting a quotation/estimate, either verbally or in writing, and agreeing to the commencement of work will allow these terms and conditions to come into effect.

Any applicable charges for materials, materials procurement/delivery, parking, congestion, waste disposal are charged additionally.
In the event of a bill-paying Client being absent when there is further chargeable work required, we will attempt to contact the Client and obtain permission prior to conducting any further work.
If a Client is non-contactable our Handyman will only continue with work if we have prior authorization from the Client, or if it is not safe or feasible to halt work at that point.
Handymen carry some stock, but we cannot guarantee they will be carrying specific part/s required unless a Client provides comprehensive details and pays a deposit in advance for an hour’s labor and the cost of the parts in full. In this instance part details and initial fault diagnosis are the Client’s liability.
Should CVHS LLC be unable to fit Client supplied or Client recommended parts, or the Client refuses to have CVHS LLC supplied parts (previously accepted as required) fitted, the return of parts carries a re-stocking charge of up to 30%, providing the parts can be returned without penalty to CVHS LLC, otherwise up to 100% of the charges may be retained.
CVHS LLC charges labor time (capped at 1 hour per day) to collect parts. If our Handyman needs to leave site to collect parts the Client will be charged for the labor up until that point (1 hour) and the full price of parts.
If the closest available supplier would likely take more than a 60 minute round trip to collect parts, but the Client still wishes us to collect parts right away, then additional travel time may apply.
