In any event, if Move It Melbourne is found to be liable this will be limited to the cost of supplying the information, files or Collective Content again.
The Platform can be used to facilitate the Booking of Transportation Services. The Transportation Services required by a Customer must be included in Booking Requests on the Platform. The Delivery Professional Transportation Capabilities must be included in the Delivery Professional’s registration information.
When registering on the Platform and creating an account, you must register as a Delivery Professional or Customer. Where you register as a Delivery Professional you will also be required to agree to the Agreement for Delivery Professionals.
Delivery Professionals who provide services in their individual (i.e. sole trader or personal capacities) must register in their own names. Delivery Professionals who provide services in a company name must register in the company name.
Move It Melbourne reserves the right to accept or reject your request to register for an account at its sole discretion and Move It Melbourne may request additional information from you before accepting or rejecting your request to register for an account. Failure to provide such information is likely to result in rejection of your request.
You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party. Accounts are personal to a Member and can only be accessed by the Member and their personnel.
Each Delivery Professional must provide detailed information as to its capabilities in respect of the Transportation Services it can offer as part of the registration process with Move It Melbourne. In particular, the Delivery Professional must provide information to Move It Melbourne in respect of its vehicles (i.e. type, capacity, location) and the types of Goods it can lawfully and safely transport (i.e. refrigerated, volume, weight, size etc) and any other restrictions or matters impacting its ability to provide Transportation Services. This information must be updated in the event of any error or change by the Delivery Professional.
As a Customer, you may create Booking Requests. To create a Booking Request, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Transportation Services required including the pickup/delivery locations (whether multi-stop or singular delivery location or WAD) and dates, whether the pickup/delivery sites will be attended, the size, weight and features of the Goods, whether any specific transport is required and any other relevant information which Move It Melbourne needs to know in order to match a Delivery Professional and which the Delivery Professional needs to know in order to provide the Transportation Services. All Booking Requests are based on the assumption that the pickup and delivery sites will have a Customer representative in attendance, will be on flat ground with easy access on private land (i.e. no stairs, hills, windy driveways, access restrictions, height restrictions etc). If this is not the case or your Booking Request has any unusual requirements, these must be communicated in the Booking Request.
In making a Booking Request, the Customer must also specify:
a) whether the Customer will pay for the Booking via credit card debit or via credit terms (noting that the granting of credit to Customers is solely at the discretion of Move It Melbourne. The Delivery Professional acknowledges and agrees that the decision to grant credit to a Customer does not constitute any endorsement or recommendation by Move It Melbourne to the Delivery Professional as to the Customer’s credit position nor any guarantee or acceptance of risk or liability by Move It Melbourne in respect of the Customer’s obligation to pay the Transportation Fee).
No Booking Request may be made in respect of Prohibited Goods.
All Customers are required to ensure their Goods are protected, stored and packed appropriately, with clear labelling and identifying marks. Customers are responsible for loading the Goods onto the Delivery Professional’s transportation. If a Delivery Professional, in its total discretion, elects to assist a Customer in loading Goods onto the Delivery Professional’s transportation, it does so at its own risk.
You acknowledge and agree that you alone are responsible for any and all Booking Requests and Member Content you post. You represent and warrant that any Booking Request you post and the Booking:
a) does not contain Prohibited Goods;
b) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties; and
c) will be in compliance with all laws.
Please note that Move It Melbourne assumes no responsibility for a Delivery Professional’s compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations.
Move It Melbourne reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Booking Request for any reason, including Booking Requests that Move It Melbourne, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms, or otherwise harmful to the Platform.
If a Customer requests a Booking and the Booking is accepted by the Delivery Professional, the agreement entered into by the Customer and Delivery Professional enter into with such Customer is between those parties and Move It Melbourne is not a party to it.
On the placement of a Booking Request, the Customer grants a Pre-Authorisation to Move It Melbourne for the Minimum Charge.
When a Booking Request is received by Move It Melbourne, Move It Melbourne will attempt to match that Booking Request with Delivery Professionals. The Booking Request will be posted to the Platform and be capable of acceptance by a Delivery Professional who is able to meet the requirements of the Booking Request. Upon acceptance by a Delivery Professional, the Booking Request shall become a Booking.
Once a Customer has accepted the Minimum Charge for a Booking, the Booking is finalised and Move It Melbourne will advise the Delivery Professional who must attend the pickup location(s) on the arranged date. The Delivery Professional is solely responsible for providing the Transportation Services to the Customer in accordance with the Booking.
If the description, dimension and/or weight of the Goods at the pickup locations do not match the Goods described in the Booking, and as a consequence the Goods exceed the permitted carrying capacity of the truck, or if access to the pickup location (or delivery location) is restricted, or if a Delivery Professional reasonably considers that the Goods are Prohibited Goods or are unsafe to carry or if the Customer has otherwise not complied with these Terms, the Delivery Professional is entitled to reject the Booking and the Customer will be charged a Cancellation Fee.
If the Customer requests that the Delivery Professional transport additional Goods or add additional drop-off locations once the Delivery Professional has accepted the Booking, additional fees may apply. The Delivery Professional can raise such additional fees via the Platform.
The Delivery Professional is under no obligation to accept any change to a Booking and may reject a Booking entirely where it does now wish to accommodate the change request and the Customer will be charged a Cancellation Fee.
Where the goods are deemed in the Delivery Professionals sole discretion, to be non-compliant with any part of this Agreement, the Delivery Professional may reject the Booking and the Customer will be charged a Cancellation Fee.
The Delivery Professional will be solely responsible for any and all liability which results from the provision of the Transportation Services, including any claims, loss, damage, costs, expense, injury or delay to the Customer, itself or a third party. To the extent permitted by law, Move It Melbourne disclaims, and Delivery Professional indemnifies Move It Melbourne, in respect of any liability suffered by the Customer, Delivery Professional or any third party arising from or in connection with the provision of Transportation Services by the Delivery Professional.
A Booking will be completed at the final delivery point once the Goods have been unloaded at the delivery address. Ensuring a recipient is on site to accept the delivery of the Goods is the Customer’s responsibility. Unloading of the Goods is the responsibility of the recipient, on instruction of the Customer. The Delivery Professional must ensure that the receiver of the Goods signs the consignment note as proof of delivery in order to finalise payment and the Delivery Professional must promptly provide such delivery confirmation to Move It Melbourne.
The Customer is responsible for all costs and expenses associated with redelivery, and will incur additional charges, if redelivery of the Goods is required.
On attendance at the pickup location, the Delivery Professional must advise Move It Melbourne and the Customer if there is any change required to the Transportation Fee as set out in the Minimum Charge, and the reason for the change in the Transportation Fee (i.e. the Goods are not as described, the pickup location has access restrictions, additional assistance was required, the Customer requested additional Transportation Services etc). If the Customer does not accept the revised Verbal Estimate the Customer will be charged a Cancellation Fee for not proceeding with the Booking. The Cancellation Fee will be passed onto the Delivery Professional by Move It Melbourne and Move It Melbourne will retain the Booking Fee.
Once the Goods have been delivered and the Delivery Professional has provided Move It Melbourne with valid proof of delivery, the Delivery Professional must also provide Move It Melbourne, with a copy visible to the Customer via the Platform, with a final tax invoice in respect of the Transportation Services upon completion of the Booking. If the final tax invoice varies from the Minimum Charge or from the updated Verbal Estimate provided on pickup, the Delivery Professional must provide detailed reasons for the variance (i.e. redelivery was required, additional delivery stops were requested, restricted access at delivery location etc). The final tax invoice is provided to Move It Melbourne on the basis that Move It Melbourne then acts in a limited capacity to incorporate the Transportation Fee into a final invoice as per the process outlined later in this Clause.
Where the Booking is made on a WAD basis, the final invoiced Transportation Fee will be based on the hourly rates as advised by the Delivery Professional and the total work and drive time (including loading, pickup, delivery and unloading) and drive time will be calculated based on the Google Maps drive time.
Upon completion of a Booking, Move It Melbourne will raise an invoice payable by the Customer which includes the final Transportation Fee, the Booking Fee and any Additional Charges provided for under this Agreement. The tax invoice must be paid by the Customer in accordance with the agreed credit terms. Where the Customer has provided Payment Details, Move It Melbourne is authorised to immediately deduct the Total Invoice at the conclusion of the delivery and will provide a receipt for all received amounts.
Where a Customer disputes the amount of the Transportation Fee as set out in the tax invoice, the Customer must raise the dispute with Move It Melbourne and the Delivery Professional within 24 hours of the tax invoice from Move It Melbourne being issued, or the tax invoice will be deemed accepted.
On registering to access or use the Platform, you will be required to supply payment information to an authorised third-party payment processor. This payment information may include, for example, credit/debit card or bank account details (“Payment Details”). You must ensure that the Payment Details you supply are correct and complete. Failure to pay any fee as and when due to Move It Melbourne under these Terms may result in your account being suspended or terminated.
You acknowledge and agree that you have read and agree to the terms and conditions of the authorised third-party payment processor, applying to their service.
You agree to pay Move It Melbourne upon demand all of Move It Melbourne’s fees, costs and expenses it incurs in connection with any failed payment, including the recovery thereof from you.
The Delivery Professional, not Move It Melbourne, is solely responsible for honouring any confirmed Bookings and making available any Transportation Services booked through the Platform. If you, as a Customer, choose to enter into a transaction with a Delivery Professional for the Booking of Transportation Services, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Delivery Professional and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with Booking imposed by the Delivery Professional. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Move It Melbourne, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Move It Melbourne is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of Move It Melbourne’s payment obligations pursuant to these Terms, Move It Melbourne (inclusive of all subsidiaries and related entities) disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.
If you are a Delivery Professional and a Booking is requested via the Platform, you will be required to either confirm or reject the Booking request within the Booking Request Period, otherwise the Booking request will automatically expire.
In addition to the Booking Fee, the Customer will be required to pay to Move It Melbourne the Transportation Fee. Move It Melbourne, via its payment provider will hold the Transportation Fee until such time as the Booking is completed and the Customer has paid in full for all amounts owing. Once a valid tax invoice is provided by the Delivery Professional to Move It Melbourne via the Platform, Move It Melbourne will raise a tax invoice for the Transportation Fee and Booking Fee and in the absence of any dispute from the Customer, the tax invoice will be deemed accepted by the Customer if no dispute is raised within 24 hours.
Where the final Transportation Fee exceeds the Transportation Fee paid by the Customer (i.e due to the Customer’s actions/inactions, changes or misdescription in the Booking Request) Move It Melbourne may require the Customer to immediately pay the additional amount.
Customers authorise Move It Melbourne (and/or any third-party payment processor of Move It Melbourne from time to time) to charge and deduct the Booking Fee, Transportation Fee and any other payments owing to Move It Melbourne from you under this Agreement, from you using the Payment Details.
The receipt of the Delivery Professional’s tax invoice by Move It Melbourne does not constitute an obligation by Move It Melbourne to pay for the Transportation Fee as set out in the tax invoice. Move It Melbourne simply receives the Delivery Professional’s tax invoice on behalf of the Customer and raises a consolidated tax invoice to the Customer (for the Transportation Fee and Booking Fee) as agent for the Delivery Professional in respect of the Transportation Fee.
For Customers situated in Australia, Move It Melbourne will collect GST on the Booking Fee on behalf of Move It Melbourne and the Delivery Professional will charge GST on the Transportation Services all of which will be itemised in the tax invoice provided by the Delivery Professional and by Move It Melbourne. Customers and Delivery Professionals represent and warrant that they are or will be (prior to accepting a Booking) registered for GST.
All amounts owed to Move It Melbourne under or in connection with these Terms constitute debts due and payable by you to Move It Melbourne until paid in full. You must pay all amounts due to Move It Melbourne without set-off, deductions counter-claims or conditions; and in available cleared funds. If an amount due under these Terms is paid after the due date you must pay Move It Melbourne, in addition to the overdue amount interest at the rate of 10% per annum calculated based on a 365-day year from the date of the default until the date the amount (together with all accrued interest) is paid in full; and all costs and expenses incurred by Move It Melbourne in collecting the overdue amount.
All fees and charges shown on the Platform and identified in these Terms are in Australian Dollars (AUD) and are inclusive of any applicable GST (unless otherwise indicated).
If the Customer cancels a Booking within three hours to the scheduled commencement time once accepted by the Delivery Professional, the Customer will be charged a Cancellation Fee. The Customer agrees and acknowledges that payment of a Cancellation Fee is a genuine pre-estimate of the loss suffered by the Delivery Professional and Move It Melbourne. The payment of a Cancellation Fee does not derogate from any Move It Melbourne’s rights under this Agreement and does not relieve the Delivery Professional from any of its obligations and liabilities. Move It Melbourne will pay the Cancellation Fee to the Delivery Professional and will retain the Booking Fee.
If, as a Delivery Professional, you cancel a confirmed Booking, you agree that Move It Melbourne may apply penalties or consequences to you, including:
a) publishing an automated review on your account indicating that a Booking was cancelled;
b) not allocating you further Booking Requests for a period of time; and/or
c) immediately terminating your account if more than one (1) cancellation occurs in any three (3) month period.
If, as a Delivery Professional, you cancel a Booking due to a Force Majeure event, the Customer releases the Delivery Professional and agrees not to make any claim for that lawful cancellation.
In certain circumstances, Move It Melbourne may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary or desirable to cancel a confirmed Booking made via the Platform. Move It Melbourne may also determine, in its sole discretion, to refund to the Customer part or all of the amounts charged to the Customer.
Move It Melbourne will initiate any refunds due to you pursuant to these Terms within 30 days, using your Payment Details.
The Delivery Professional is responsible for insuring its trucks, its Delivery Professionals and for maintaining any other licenses, permits or insurances required by law.
Move It Melbourne requires the Delivery Professional to supply Move It Melbourne with evidence (certificates of currency and/or policies) of their insurance including, but not limited to Public Liability, Motor Vehicle and Goods In Transit Insurance. The Delivery Professional must ensure that Move It Melbourne is nominated as an interested party on all relevant insurance policies.

Ratings are used by Move It Melbourne to monitor the standard of the Transportation Services and compliance with a Booking. If a party receives poor ratings on multiple occasions, Move It Melbourne may restrict an account or terminate use of the Platform by that party.
