When we collect your things

To ensure the smooth collection and delivery of Goods to You, there are certain demands we make on you as Customer. You must provide information that You deem, or should deem, to be material for the execution of the assignment. This may, for example, be information about the extent of Your things such as their weight; whether access to Your place is limited; whether there is an elevator and in such case its weight limits; whether the Goods contain particularly heavy objects such as a piano or large furniture that can cause personal injury, or if they contain particularly valuable /fragile objects. If the Goods contain loose items, we may pack these into a Box. The Box will then be registered as Goods with Us. 

Transport

When the Goods are transported, you need to complete certain steps in the App or on the Website. We call these tasks “Transport Instructions”. Your responsibility, either yourself or via an agent, is to be present when We pick up and deliver the Goods; to state the correct information regarding things to be picked up and to confirm that You have received/delivered the Goods when We deliver or pick them up. If we cannot complete the assignment because of incorrect or incomplete information, or because You/Your agent are not present, you may be liable to compensate us for the costs incurred as a result of this.  When You have received the Goods, it is important for us that You examine them, and check that nothing has been damaged. If the Goods are damaged and this is due to Us, we may compensate You. See additionally under the heading “Insurance and Liability.    

Storage of the Goods

You may not store Forbidden Goods with Us. If We suspect that Goods contain Forbidden Goods, we may open the Goods. If the Goods contain Forbidden Goods, we will dispose of, or remove, these at Your expense. If they have caused or cause damage, we will hold You liable for the damage.  

Insurance and Liability

You must compensate us for the damage and the costs that arise if You breach the Agreement. If, for example, we incur extra costs as a result of an unsuccessful pick up; the Goods being incorrectly packed when You have opted yourself to be responsible for packing; the Goods containing Forbidden Goods; Our being unable to deliver the Goods; or of a card payment being declined, we may charge You extra for Our costs or for the non-payment. 

All Goods must be packed in a professional manner. Contact Vinden for advice on how to pack or if you need to buy packaging. For Goods that are not packed in a professional manner, extra costs are payable for the time it takes Us to pack the Goods, and for our handling and/or packing. 

We are liable to compensate You for damage that occurs to property other than the Goods during execution of the assignment if it affects a consumer or someone in their household, if We cannot show that the damage was not caused by neglect on Our part.   

You should take out insurance on the objects that covers such damage to the Goods that Vinden is not liable to compensate you for. Customers with particularly valuable Goods is recommended to complement the protection of their Goods through an own insurance during transportation and/or storage.

In storage, Your things are insured through our property insurance underwritten by Berkley. To ensure that we have the correct value of Your Goods, You must inform us if you wish to store property with Us that has a value in excess of SEK 25 000.

During transportation your Goods are insured through our group insurance underwritten by Berkley (https://vinden-insurance.s3.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/Fo%CC%88rsa%CC%88kringsvillkor-VindenAB-2022-04-01.pdf). The insurance amount per transport is limited to SEK 25 000.

In case of damage, You should notify Vinden as soon as you discover the damage. To notify Vinden about the damage, firstly fill in Berkleys claims form that is available on Vindens web page, and then email it to info@vinden.com together with a description of your claim. If you have any questions contact Vinden at info@vinden.com.

Vinden handles your Goods with care. However, Vinden does not test the functionality of the Goods and cannot, therefore, be held liable if the Goods do not work (e.g., electronics or other Goods with moving parts) when we receive or deliver them. If You discover that Goods are not working when You get these back from Vinden, and there is no new visible damage, We cannot therefore pay any compensation for this. 

Term of Agreement and Rent

When all Goods have been returned to You or delivered in accordance with Your Transport Instructions, the Agreement ceases to be in force. 

Rent must be paid monthly in advance and applies one calendar month at a time. For the first month You pay for a whole month. Payment terms are 15 days. If you are more than 30 days late after the Due Date in paying rent or other compensation to Us or if You breach the terms of the Agreement, we may terminate the Agreement with immediate effect. Statutory penalty interest is payable in the event of late payment.

Changes to the Agreement

We are entitled unilaterally to change the terms of the Agreement, including rent and other compensation. When We do this, the new terms apply from the day that falls 45 days after We have  (a) informed You in writing of the new rent or compensation or (b) after we have provided notification of other changes on the App or Website. If You do not accept a change, you are entitled to terminate the Agreement. The Agreement ceases when We have delivered the Goods in accordance with your Transport Instructions. Until we have received the Transport Instructions, the new Rent and/or the new terms apply. 

We may assign our rights and obligations under the Agreement to another company in the Vinden group of companies without Your approval.

Website and App
