2.0 Quotation & Acceptance
By accepting Capsel’s quotation by letter, telephone or e-mail, The customer agrees to be bound by Capsel’s Terms and Conditions. We reserve the right to refuse or decline services at our own discretion. Where the company agrees to carry out works for the Customer, these works shall be undertaken by the designated Operative of the company at its absolute discretion. All prices are subject to an inspection of the Customer’s property and written quotation which shall remain valid for a period of 60 days. On acceptance of a quotation The Customer gives Capsel permission to order/purchase materials/items required for works as stated within the quotation.
Quotations are based on assessment of the services to be done, and are itemized estimates of all the services to be completed. While every effort is made to quote work
as accurately as possible, it is sometimes necessary to include an additional sum in the final account for items and labour, which could not be foreseen at the estimation stage. These items will always be discussed and confirmed with The Customer at the earliest opportunity. Capsel reserves the right to amend the initial quotation, should The Customer‘s original requirements change. If after submission of the quote,
- There is an increase in the price of materials
- If after submission of the quote, it is discovered that further works need to be carried out which were not anticipated when the quote was prepared.
- If after submission of the quote, it is discovered that there was a manifest error when the quote was prepared
For pricing purposes it is assumed there is no asbestos in the property.

Capsel will allow reasonable endeavours to complete the services, in accordance with the time estimate given, but any such time shall be an estimate only, and time shall not be of the essence of this agreement.
The company shall provide all equipment, supplies, products and other materials required to carry out the services unless agreed otherwise with the Customer. The Customer will provide running water and electricity at the premises where the service takes place.
Depending on the time taken to perform the services, We may leave certain tools and equipment at the Customer’s property. If there is any particular area you wish Capsel to store these please advise the operator.

If the Customer delays the agreed start date or works once in progress for any reason, a suspended works charge is payable, pro-rata for the man days delayed, as well as any associated material costs.
All right, title and interest in hire tools and equipment remain with Capsel and the Customer will be responsible for payment in the event of a cancellation.
A cancellation charge of £100 + VAT will be incurred for cancellation of all works if cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the works commencing.
Where it is deemed impossible to continue works that have already been commenced at your property due to no fault or consequence of our own, and where materials have already been purchased by Capsel, the cost of all materials will be the responsibility of the Customer.
Payment for part of the work may be required by the company prior to the ‘start date’ and ‘work’ starting on site. This may be to cover the cost of materials or sub contractor’s deposits. Where this is the case then you will be notified separately via an invoice being raised.
Where payment is payable on completion you will be issued with an invoice which is payable within 30 days of issue.
If there is a dispute in the invoiced amount this is to be raised within 3 days with details of the query. The disputed amount may be temporarily deduced from an invoice to allow the remainder balance to be paid until the amount in dispute can be resolved.
If Capsel disagrees with your dispute against the invoiced amount, then we will expect payment in full. We may in certain cases where we have not received payment and any disputes cannot be resolved take court action against you to reclaim the amounts we are owed following the ‘work’ we have completed at the property.
