TERMS SPECIFIC TO ERRAND SERVICES
Appointment of Driver as Agent
- The User appoints the Driver to act as agent on behalf of the User and/or Recipient in the performance of the Errand Services.

The User shall where requested by Driver provide such co-operation and assistance to Driver in respect of any verification process the Trader may require regarding the Driver’s authority to act on behalf of the User and/or Recipient. This may include requiring the User to notify the Trader in advance of the Driver’s arrival of such authority to act on the User or Recipient’s behalf.
- To the extent, the Errand Services require the Driver to enter into a contract with a Trader for the purchase of Goods or for services in relation to Goods owned by the User and/or Recipient, the contract for the purchase shall be made between the Trader and the User and/or Recipient and the User and/or Recipient hereby authorises the Driver to enter into such contracts on the User and/or Recipient’s behalf. Where Trader is not prepared to accept the Driver’s authority, the Driver may cancel the Booking Request and charge a Cancellation Fee (and recover any Disbursements incurred (e.g. parking tickets) and applicable Transaction Fee) in accordance with clause 8. Driver shall have no liability to User (or Recipient) to the extent a Trader is not prepared to accept the Driver’s authority. Booking request

It is the sole responsibility of the User to ensure that all information relevant to the request is provided at the time of submitting the Errand Booking Request. In particular, the User must provide all relevant information in relation to any Goods to be purchased, including the product type, brand, size, colour, quantity and any other product characteristics. If any details are unclear or missing, the Driver may, but shall have no obligation to, contact the User to clarify any details and/or exercise his/her reasonable judgement in respect of the User’s requirements. Where an Errand Booking Request is unclear and/or missing detail and Driver attempts to contact User and/or Recipient for clarification and does not obtain a satisfactory response after two attempts, PHO may cancel the Booking Request and charge a Cancellation Fee (and request reimbursement of any Disbursements incurred) in accordance with clause 8. Where Driver collects or purchases incorrect Goods due to a request being unclear or missing detail, Driver shall have no liability to User and shall be entitled to charge all Transport Charges and Disbursements incurred (and applicable Transaction Fees) provided it can demonstrate that it exercised reasonable judgement when deciding what Goods to collect and/or purchase on behalf of User and/or Recipient.
- No Errand Booking Request shall be accepted if it requires the Driver to collect and/or purchase Excluded Goods (see clause 11). If an Errand Booking Request includes any Excluded Goods, the entire Errand Booking Request shall be rejected by PHO and/or Driver. Collecting and/or purchasing Goods
- The Driver shall collect the Goods from the Pick-Up Location. Where the Booking Request requires the Driver to purchase Goods, the Driver shall have no obligation to purchase Goods from a particular Trader unless specified otherwise in the Errand Booking Request. Further where the Booking Request requires the Driver to collect and/or purchase a Good from a particular Trader and on arrival at the Pick-Up location, the Trader is not open for business, the Driver may cancel the Booking Request and charge a Cancellation Fee (and request reimbursement of any Disbursements incurred and applicable Transaction Fee) in accordance with clause 8.
- To the extent, the Driver is required to pick up Goods from a particular Pick-Up Location that in the Driver’s reasonable opinion causes a risk to the health or safely of the Driver, the Driver may cancel the Booking Request and charge a Cancellation Fee in accordance with clause 8.
- If Goods are to be collected from the User, the User must be available at the Pick-Up Location at the Pick-Up Time to allow collection of the Goods by the Driver. If the User is not available at the Pick-Up location within 20 minutes of the Driver’s arrival, Driver may cancel the Booking Request and charge a Cancellation Fee in accordance with clause 8 provided that Driver does not arrive before the estimated Pick-Up Time. If the Driver does not arrive to the Pick-Up Location, within 5 minutes of the estimated Pick-Up Time, User may cancel the Booking Request without liability. Delivering Goods
- Driver shall deliver the Goods to the Drop-Off Location. Prior to delivery, the Driver and the User may agree an alternative delivery location. In this case, the total price will be recalculated in accordance with the set rate for the Errand Services applicable to the new Drop-Off Location.
- The Recipient must be available at the Drop-Off Location at least at the estimated Delivery Drop-Off Time to take delivery of the Goods.
- If the Driver is unable to deliver the Goods to the Recipient at the Drop-Off Location due to the unavailability of the Recipient and/or access to the Drop-Off location in the Driver’s reasonable opinion is likely to cause a risk to the health or safety of the Driver, the Driver will treat the situation in accordance with Wheely’s Lost and Found Policy where the Driver delivers the Goods to Wheely’s office and the User is later contacted to arrange a convenient Drop-Off Location and time.
- Where Driver is unable to deliver the Goods due to the unavailability of the Recipient, it shall try at least twice to contact the Recipient prior to exercising its discretion.
- If the Goods include alcohol, tobacco or nicotine products (“Age-Restricted Products”), the Driver has an obligation to ensure that the Recipient is at least 18 years of age. If requested by the Driver, the Recipient must provide a passport or valid driving licence to enable the Driver to verify the age of the Recipient. If the Driver is unable to verify the age of the Recipient, or the Driver has reason to believe that the Recipient is already intoxicated at the time of delivery, the Driver shall not deliver the Goods to the Recipient. In these circumstances, the User shall be charged the full amount of the fees and disbursements for the Errand Services in accordance with clause 8. Part cancellation for multiple Pick-Ups
- Where the Driver agrees to carry out more than one pick up for a particular journey and the Driver has the right to cancel for one of the circumstances set out above, unless otherwise agreed with the User, the Driver may only cancel that part of the Booking Request in respect of which the right to cancel has arisen (e.g. in respect of the collection or purchase of Goods from unsafe Pick-Up Location and/or Trader) and shall fulfil the rest of the Booking Request. In such an event the Driver shall not charge a Cancellation Fee but shall be entitled to recover the Transport Charges for the journey to and from the unsafe Pick-Up Location and/or Trader in accordance with clause 8. Availability of User and/or Recipient
- The User and the Recipient must be available to receive calls at the phone number submitted through the App from the moment of submitting the Errand Booking Request on the App until delivery of Goods to the Recipient. If the Recipient is any person other than the User, the User confirms that the User has obtained the consent of the Recipient to provide a contact telephone number(s) and/or other contact details in the Errand Booking Request and for the Driver to contact the Recipient in connection with the performance of the Errand Services. Consumer Rights
- Consumers have legal rights in relation to goods that are faulty or not as described and services that are not performed with reasonable care and skill. Advice about the legal rights of consumers is available from the Citizens' Advice Bureau (www.citizensadvice.org.uk) or Trading Standards (www.gov.uk/find-local-trading-standards-office). Nothing in these Terms in any way affects the legal rights of consumers. However, the User acknowledges and accepts that where the Driver makes a purchase from a Trader on behalf of the User, and the User later wishes to exercise any consumer rights he or she may have against the Trader, the Trader may refuse to acknowledge the User’s consumer rights under the contract in circumstances where the User cannot prove that he or she has a contract with the Trader for the relevant purchase. Neither PHO/Wheely nor the Driver shall have any responsibility to the User in these circumstances and shall have no obligation to enter into any correspondence or negotiations with the relevant Trader. Complaints
- If the User has any complaints regarding the Errand Services including delivery of the Goods, the User is encouraged to inform Wheely thereof through the App as soon as possible, but no later than within 24 hours of the specific delivery. Wheely may request a photograph of the Goods or other evidence or explanation of the circumstances related to the complaint.
- Although Wheely is neither the manufacturer or seller of the Goods nor does Wheely supervise, direct or control the manner in which the delivery of Goods is carried out by the Driver, Wheely will try to facilitate an amicable solution and may provide a refund or account credit in respect of the affected items if Wheely has reasonable cause to believe that the complaint is justified.

Wheely shall in turn reimburse the Driver for such Disbursements. In addition, Wheely may, acting on behalf of the Driver, also charge the User a Transaction Fee equal to 3% of the aggregate value of the Goods purchased (“Transaction Fees”).
Cancellation Fees — In the case where User cancels a Booking Request 5 minutes after Driver
has been assigned, or the PHO (either itself or at the Driver’s request) cancels a Booking
Request due to:
- the Passenger not being at the agreed Pick-Up Location at the Pick-Up Time;
- any of the reasons set out in clause 7 (except in respect of part cancellation); or
- User being in breach of these Terms, Wheely will charge the User a cancellation fee including waiting time, which fee will at least amount to the minimum fare (“Cancellation Fees”). Where PHO cancels a Booking Request as a result of the User’s breach of these Terms or pursuant to its rights in clause 7, the right to charge Cancellation Fees shall be in addition to the right to recover any Disbursements incurred and any applicable Transaction Fees (as well as or other costs or losses incurred as a result of the User’s breach of these Terms).
Payment Using Personal Account
- Credit card payments only — Passenger Transport or Errand Services booked via the App can only be paid by credit card. After the ride or upon delivery of the Goods, the set rate shall be charged automatically.
- Timing — Transport Charges, Disbursements, Transaction Fees and Cancellation Fees (which shall be the subject of a separate agreement between Wheely and Driver) shall be charged automatically by Wheely once Driver has confirmed that Services have been completed and/or Services have been cancelled using the credit card linked to the personal account.
- Insufficient funds on credit card — In case after the ride it appears that the credit card linked to User’s personal account does not have sufficient funds to cover the fare, User is obliged to add credit to his/her card within a week. Until Wheely has been able to charge the unpaid fare, User’s personal account will be locked. After receipt of the payment your personal account will be unlocked, User will then be free to continue to use the services offered via the App.
- Multiple credit cards — User may link multiple credit cards to a personal account and choose the preferred card when making a Booking Request. In the event that Wheely is unable to charge the preferred card, it will charge any other card linked to User’s personal account.
- Preauthorization — Wheely may pre-authorize User’s credit card to ensure that there are enough funds to pay for the booked ride. Payment Using Corporate Account

Wheely's administrative costs may include the cost of employing the staff concerned and the overheads attributable to them for the time spent. Promotion rides and rewards
- Wheely may provide new App Users with promotional rides, or reward existing Users for inviting others who make a first journey. Wheely is free to delete promotional rides or rewards from User’s personal and/or corporate account at any time, in particular when Wheely has reasons to believe that User engages in referral fraud by creating duplicate accounts.
