Article 13. Definition of the service

Recyclage Express provides an express transport service, dedicated to moving various objects from point A (departure address) to point B (arrival address), in accordance with the terms specified in the initial quote. This service includes the handling, transport and delivery of objects in compliance with established conditions. The service is carried out while ensuring the safety and integrity of the objects transported, with the commitment to efficiency that characterizes Recyclage Express.

Article 14. Objects transported

The objects authorized for transport must comply with current legislation and be explicitly mentioned in the initial quote. Recyclage Express reserves the right to refuse the transport of objects added subsequently which were not included in the initial quote, unless prior agreement is expressed by a written readjustment of the quote. This measure aims to prevent any misunderstanding concerning the nature and volume of goods transported and ensures total transparency between Recyclage Express and the customer.

Article 15. Order, price and payment

  • For services less than 2500 CHF : Payment is flexible, allowing the customer to pay in cash, by card or via Twint at the conclusion of the service. Proof of payment or confirmation from our accounting department is required for payments made by invoice. This flexibility aims to facilitate transactions while guaranteeing financial traceability.

  • For services equal to or greater than 2500 CHF : A deposit of 40% of the total cost is required, in addition to the provision of a quote signed by the customer. This procedure confirms the customer's commitment to the service and guarantees secure financial management of the order. Proof of payment of the deposit must be presented before the start of the service to validate the customer's commitment. In the absence of this proof, Recyclage Express reserves the right not to begin the service.

  • Compliance review : Before any intervention, the team leader is responsible for verifying the conformity of the initial quote with the goods actually to be transported and proof of payment or deposit. This crucial step ensures that the services provided correspond exactly to the customer's expectations and Recyclage Express's commitments.

  • Payment period : Payment for the service is due at the latest at the end of the service for individuals and payable within 10 days for companies. The customer cannot under any circumstances withhold payment, even in the event of a claim, the settlement of claims being completely independent of invoicing.

Article 16. Cancellation of the Service

Recyclage Express recognizes the importance of flexibility for its customers and offers clear cancellation conditions to meet their needs:

  • Standard Cancellation : Customers can cancel their service without incurring costs up to 48 hours before the agreed date and time for the service. This policy aims to provide sufficient flexibility for any changes to plans.

  • Force Majeure : In exceptional situations where circumstances beyond the customer's control prevent the performance of the service (such as force majeure events), Recyclage Express offers the possibility of postponing the service at no additional cost or of canceling the service with a complete refund. This clause demonstrates our commitment to treating our customers with fairness and understanding in unforeseen situations.

Article 17. Access and Preparation of Transported Objects

In order to guarantee an efficient and secure service:

  • Preparation and Accessibility : Customers are responsible for ensuring that all items to be transported are ready and easily accessible at the agreed address and time. This preparation is essential for smooth execution of the service.

  • Travel Assistance : Recyclage Express offers assistance with moving objects, including the assembly and dismantling of cabinets. However, it is important to note that, due to their inherently fragile nature, these items are not covered by our warranty against damage during the transport process. Customers will be informed of this exception before handling begins, allowing for informed decision making.

Article 18. Impossibility to provide the service

Recyclage Express is committed to providing its services in accordance with the expectations of its customers. However :

  • Case of Impossibility : If, for reasons beyond the customer's control, the service cannot be carried out as planned, Recyclage Express offers flexible solutions.

Article 19. Damage Management

Recyclage Express is committed to providing quality service and handling all items entrusted with the greatest care. However, in the event of damage, the following procedure is put in place to ensure transparent and fair management of the situation:

  • Declaration of disaster : The customer is required to report any damage by completing the claims form available on the Recyclage Express website immediately after noticing the damage. This form must be submitted within a reasonable time (1 month), to allow a rapid and efficient evaluation.

  • Limited Liability for Fragile Objects : The liability of Recyclage Express is limited with regard to damage caused during the handling of objects recognized as fragile (for example, cabinets). These objects require special treatment and, despite all precautions taken, may be susceptible to damage. Customers will be informed of this limitation of liability before the start of the service.

  • Damage Assessment Process : Once the claim form has been received, Recyclage Express will carry out an assessment of the damage. This assessment may include an on-site inspection, consultation of photos or documents provided by the client, and, if necessary, the opinion of external experts.

  • Amicable settlement : Recyclage Express favors amicable settlement of claims. Depending on the assessment of the damage and the circumstances, different options may be offered to the customer, such as repair of the damaged item, its replacement, or financial compensation. The solution chosen will be the one that best suits both parties, in a spirit of cooperation and mutual respect.

  • Notification and Tracking : The customer will be kept informed throughout the disaster management process. Once the resolution has been agreed, Recyclage Express undertakes to implement the decided measures as quickly as possible.

  • Subscription and Payment : The subscription and payment terms for clearance services are aligned with those applicable to our express transport service. This includes the flexibility of payment methods, the requirement of a deposit for specific services, and the confirmation and cancellation process.

Article 21. Pricing for the Clearance Service

  • Pricing for the clearance service is established on the basis of a personalized quote, taking into account the nature and volume of the objects to be cleared as well as the complexity of the operation. This quote is provided after assessing the client's needs, guaranteeing total cost transparency.

Recyclage Express undertakes to communicate any price changes before the start of the service.
