7. Rates, Payment and Fees
Rates Each Service Provider shall enter all information pertinent to their services and rates on their Service Provider account. This shall include all information regarding any distinction on services provided and all costs associated with such service. Service Providers will have an option to enter their flat rates, travel fees, area coverage, refund, additional hour rates, rates for same day & next day orders, working over pre-booked times, equipment fees etc. under their Service Provider profile. Although not all of the service options are mandatory, Service Providers must list their rates for services in order to be listed on the site.
To determine travel fees by miles, MovingHelpCenter uses Google Maps to determine the actual driving mileage between two locations (from the Service Providers business address to the center of the Customers zip code). In the rare case that we cannot determine the driving mileage we calculate the distance simply as the shortest distance between two points on the map. When the job is a local move (when the customers locations are within 50 miles of each other) no additional travel fees will be added as the service provider is charging for the time it takes to drive to the customers’ second location.
Two (2) hours of services will be the minimum for which each Service Provider can contract for services. Service Providers will have an opportunity to list a flat rate for each two (2), three (3) or four (4) hour of services for a minimum of $15 per person, per hour.
For any hours over the pre-booked time, a default option that you do not provide such services will be automatically selected for you. But should a Service Provider elect that they do provide time beyond the pre-booked hours and/or provide services beyond what was originally booked by Customer, they are agreeing to that availability on every order in circumstances where more time is needed. Additional hours will be calculated at thirty (30) minute increments at the hourly rate that the order was booked under.
8. CANCELLATION FEES
The following policies apply to fees associated with a cancellation:
Cancellation fees may not exceed $25 USD or deposit amount of order if it is cancelled less than twenty four (24) hours before scheduled start time. Should a Service Provider fail to accept an order or a Customer cancels an order due to an inability to contact the Service Provider, or if a Service Provider fails to show up during designated start time, or if the order is cancelled more than twenty four (24) hours before scheduled start time, a cancellation fee will not apply. If applied, MovingHelpCenter will retain twenty-five ($25) dollars of the total cancellation fee as its fee. If there is a dispute regarding cancellation fees owed, the Service Provider must be able to show proof via emails and/or phone records that they were in contact with the Customer and had confirmed the Order both when it was booked and between twenty-four (24) and forty-eight (48) hours before the start time. In the circumstance where a Service Provider does show up during designated start time but with less crew members than promised, the Helper has to charge the same amount per crew member as opposed to their normal rates for that size crew.
Payments: Customers pay Service Providers cash on location. If a Service Provider is unable to collect payment from their Customer their sole remedy is against that Customer.
Fees: MovingHelpCenter charges providers $15 per booking. This amount is deducted at booking and included in the customers deposit with MovingHelpCenter. Provider's collect cash on location from Customer
