2. The Company’s Liabilities
Customers are asked to remember that a public car park is open to everyone. The staff have instructions to remove persons misbehaving themselves, but it is impossible to exclude undesirables altogether and the Company cannot therefore guarantee the security of customers’ vehicle or their contents. Accordingly:
(a) the Company, its servants and agents will accept liability up to £10,000 for any one claim and £50,000 in respect of a series of claims arising out of one breach of duty or other incident giving rise to liability insofar as this limitation is not barred by statute in respect of any loss or theft of or from temporary failure to deliver or damage to the vehicle only where the same is proved and to the extent that it is proved to be caused by the negligence, willful act or default or breach of statutory duty of the Company, its servants or agents or the dishonesty of its servants or agents; and
(b) the Company, its servants and agents will accept liability in respect of the death of or personal injury sustained by customers and other in the car park up to a limit of £2,000,000 insofar as this limitation is not barred by statute for any one claim or series of claims arising out of one breach of duty or other incident giving rise to liability only where the same is proved and to the extent that it is proved to be caused by the negligence, willful default or breach or statutory duty of the Company, its servants or agents: and
(c) the Company, its servants and agents will not accept any liability whatsoever insofar as this limitation is not barred by statute for any damage to the vehicle whilst it is being moved or relocated for the purpose of cleaning it in accordance with clause 10.4.
3. Complaints Procedure
Should customer’s vehicles suffer damage whilst in the car park or should they lose the vehicle or any of their possessions from the vehicle whilst it is in the car park they are requested:
(a) Immediately to inform a member of staff of the occurrence; and
(b) In cases of theft, immediately to inform the Police; and
(c) To notify their insurers promptly.
If customers consider that they have a claim against the Company they must within 72 hours of discovery of the loss or damage give written notice containing full details of the occurrence to the Company at its head office at: 1 Golden Court, Richmond, Surrey TW9 1EU. Before submitting a claim to the Company, customers are requested to check Condition 2 above and to satisfy themselves that the subject matter of their claim falls within the Company’s area of responsibility.
