Price and Estimates

Our charges are based on time spent and on the size of the area that requires our Services.

(a) If we provide an estimate, then we will charge you the amount stated in the estimate rather than a charge based on the time taken in performing the Services. We only provide estimates and not quotations or binding indications of how much we will charge. 

(b) As we provide an estimate we may need to charge you a higher amount than stated in the estimate. This can occur for a number of reasons, in particular where:

(i) the size of the area of the Premises that you require us to perform the Services on is larger than we anticipate based on the information you provide us;

(ii) what you require us to do changes, or the amount of work or Services you require us to provide increases or is different to what we and you agreed before we started performing the Services and as stated in the estimate; or

(iii) when we start performing the Services it becomes apparent that the amount of Services we will need to perform or the type of work that is involved is different to what we agreed before we started performing the Services and we could not reasonably foresee this before we started performing the Services.

(c) Where the amount of work involved is greater than that stated in an estimate then following will happen:

(ii) We will not continue performing the Services and we will seek your approval to the extra amount that you will need to pay, unless:

(A) it is not possible to contact you within a reasonable time; or

(B) it is not deemed safe to stop performing the Services.

Payment

The pricing set out in our agreement is payable by the Customer to Buggo Pest Control for the Service. The fees are payable on the day the Service is rendered.
