  11. Rules for Buyers and Sellers

    Sellers bid on Buyers' transport requirements in a reverse auction system with the price going lower with each bid. This system creates a competitive environment to achieve the best price. It is a matter for the parties to the transaction to satisfy themselves that each party is capable of carrying out the proposed transaction.

    To use and rely on the Service we provide, all participants must understand their obligations to other users of our Service. Once a Buyer accepts a Seller's bid, both parties must complete the transaction (i.e. the Seller transports the goods as agreed and the Buyer pays the fee as agreed).

    A Seller may not retract a bid. A Buyer must not change any relevant details regarding the Transaction, e.g. goods description, transport location, etc, after the Bid has been accepted. If a Buyer wishes to change relevant details, he/she/it must close the auction and recommence a new auction with the correct details. Exchange of any contact information (e.g. email, phone numbers, company names, etc.) during the auction is prohibited and may result in account suspension or closure without notice by Hilgrow.

    Acceptance of a bid by a Buyer entitles us and the Seller to rely on your acceptance as meaning the Buyer warrants and undertakes that he/she/it has the legal right to accept such bid and enter into the Transaction with the Seller.

    If a Seller places a bid on our website, the Seller acknowledges and agrees that if its bid is accepted by the Buyer, both parties (the Seller and Buyer) have entered into a contract in respect of the Transaction. The law of contract then applies to the contract entered into by the Buyer and Seller. Terms and conditions must be agreed via the Service (i.e. LogiDeals website, and not directly between the Buyer and Seller). Buyers and Sellers are not permitted to communicate regarding a proposed or potential Transaction outside the Service during an open auction. Parties should explicitly agree all terms and conditions and review same prior to entering a binding contract. Where deemed necessary, independent legal advice should be obtained by the parties.

    When placing a Bid on the website, a Seller must include all taxes, including VAT, and fees payable by the Buyer for the transport services in any Bid. Sellers must not bid against their own Bid, or have associates, agents or employees do so. Sellers must not misrepresent their services nor mislead the Buyer.

    Buyers must not mislead the Seller as regards the nature, description or destination of the load. Buyers must not submit their own bids to decrease the Bids made by Sellers.

    Neither Buyers nor Sellers may interfere with another parties transaction, nor offer to buy or sell transport services in response to a Buyers transport requirement outside of this website.

  12. Transportation of Goods

    Buyers may not seek to have goods whose transport is prohibited by law, and Sellers may not offer to transport such goods. Full responsibility for compliance with any laws and regulations in relation to the transport of any goods lies with the parties to the transport agreement (the Buyer and Seller).

  13. Payment

A Deposit Fee (see below) will be payable by the Buyer to Hilgrow, and this Deposit Fee will be deducted from the cost of the transport delivery service as agreed by the Buyer and Seller.
