Right to search your items
A search of your items may be requested/carried out randomly prior to us accepting your items as part of the Service, or whilst your items are being stored by us as part of the Service (i.e. you may not be present when these searches are undertaken). We will only undertake searches to determine whether your items fall within any of the prohibited items listed in these terms, or to ensure the correct items are returned to you. If, after you have deposited items, it comes to our attention that any of your items fall into any of the prohibited categories set out in these terms, we will contact you to request the items are collected immediately. If reasonable, we may also be required to safely dispose and/or isolate the items where appropriate. By agreeing to these terms, you are providing your consent for these searches to be undertaken in all circumstances. Your obligations to show proof of purchase If requested, we may require you to provide proof of purchase in relation to any items being stored as part of this Service. It is within our absolute discretion to request such proof to be provided. In the event that you refuse, or are unable to provide proof of purchase for items, we reserve the right to refuse to store any or all of your items as part of the Service. How we will store your items We will store your items in our secure storage facility at all times. We are unable to provide you with access to the storage facility. This is to ensure the safety of other users’ items. Collecting your items Unless otherwise agreed by us, you are required to collect the items we store for you by the date and time agreed with you at the time you deposit your items with us.
Providing us with contact details
When depositing your items with us, you are required to provide us with your direct contact telephone number. It is your responsibility to make sure this telephone contact number is correct and legible for our staff. You must also ensure that you are contactable on the number provided for the duration of your items being stored.

We will not be liable to you in the following circumstances: (i) loss or damage in relation to any items falling within the prohibited categories set out in these terms; and (ii) loss or damage caused by you failing to collect your items within the timescales set out in these terms. We are only responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time this contract is made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example if you discussed it with us before entering into the contract. We will therefore only be responsible for the market value of any item that is lost or damaged due to our negligence. However, please note that our liability in relation to loss or damage to any individual item is capped at £500, and our total liability under or in connection with this contract is limited to £1000.

This will include any costs we incur in relation to the safe disposal and/or isolation of such items and any damage to our or any third party’s property. You will also be liable for any reasonable costs we incur in circumstances where we are required to dispose of your items due to your failure to collect them within the timescales set out in these terms.
Disposal of uncollected items
In the event that you fail to collect your items by the date and time agreed, we will attempt to contact you to arrange collection. We will attempt to contact you on at least 3 separate occasions over a 14 day period to arrange collection. In the event that we are unable to contact you and/or you fail to collect your items within this 14 day period, or by any further deadline agreed with you, we will be entitled to treat your items as abandoned.
