Conditions of Cartage
We reserve the right to vary resources (number of men and trucks) from what was originally quoted. This helps ensure an effective, safe and efficient removal. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure our employees are working in a clean and safe environment. We reserve the right to decline to commence or complete a move if, in our opinion the work environment is unclean/unhygienic and/or unsafe.

Normal delivery hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. Any special deliveries outside these hours will incur additional charges. Any deliveries to rural or outside our Auckland boundaries will incur additional charges.Down time occurring as a result of delays caused by circumstances outside of the control of Platinum Deliveries 2006 Ltd is charged at our hourly rate.
