Terms and Conditions
These Terms and conditions shall apply to the supply of any service/s by Pool Geeks Brisbane to the customer, and shall prevail over any other documentation or communication from the customer. Any variation to these terms and conditions will be deemed invalid unless agreed to in writing prior to commencement of service/s. Although Pool Geeks Brisbane endeavours to advise customers of changes, information in these terms and conditions is subject to change without notice and any changes will hold immediate effect for any new or recurring service/s after the change has been made.
Scheduling of Regular or Repeating Services
Pool Geeks Brisbane will attempt to schedule services in a predictable manner. One, two, three, four, five, and six week regular services will, as far as possible, be scheduled for the same day of the week.
Monthly services will be scheduled for the nth occurrence of a particular day each month. For example the first Friday or the third Monday of the month. This results in a 4 or 5 week cycle depending on the month.
Due to weather, employee health and availability, clashes in appointment recurrences and other circumstances beyond our control we may not be able to schedule a visit on the appointed day. When such a instance occurs we will schedule the service for the next available time or up to one day in advance. If a service will be delayed by more than three business days we will do our best to notify the customer.
Billing and Payment
At the conclusion of a service Pool Geeks Brisbane will issue an invoice to an email address nominated by the customer. If a customer does not provide an email address a paper copy of the invoice may be requested at an additional cost.
For new customers payment is expected at the conclusion of the service. For returning customers payment is expected next day. Longer payment terms may be available by negotiation with Pool Geeks Brisbane.
Pool Geeks Brisbane reserves the right to refuse service to customers with an overdue account.
Payment can be made through direct deposit, EFTPOS, or through PayPal. Paypal allows users to pay online through a number of methods including Credit Card or a PayPal account. All payments made through third party gateways, such as PayPal, are subject to the terms and conditions of the third party.
Pool Geeks Brisbane reserves the right to modify, update or run promotions on any product or service at any time. Pool Geeks reserves the right to change the price of any product or service at any time prior to booking or order. Once a particular product or service has been booked or ordered the price and details of the product/s and/or service/s shall remain fixed for that particular order.
Pool Geeks Brisbane reserves the right to modify, update or run promotions on recurring/regular services. Pool Geeks Brisbane shall attempt to notify customers when the price of a recurring service increases at least 30 days before the next booking after the price increase takes effect. Notification will be via a nominated email address. The customer agrees to check email regularly for correspondence. Pool Geeks Brisbane shall consider a sent email as received by the customer.
Though we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our estimates and quotes, sometimes in the course of performing work or service/s an issue may arise that we were unaware of at the time of creating a quote or estimate. In such an instance, if an approved estimate or quote requires labour and/or products not specified in the initial quote or estimate, Pool Geeks may seek your approval of a revised estimate. If you do not agree to the revised estimate or quote Pool Geeks brisbane may hold you responsible for any labour or products used until that point in the service, up to and not exceeding the full amount of the original estimate or quote.
