Loadit facilitates the transportation service between drivers and you but Loadit does not intend to provide the actual transportation services or act in any way as a transport provider to you, and takes no responsibility or liability for any transportation provided to you. You acknowledge that Loadit does not guarantee the services of the driver which is a third party provider, does not employ such driver and shall take no part arising from your relationship, contractual or otherwise with the driver.

The Loadit app allows you to obtain transportation services from a driver. If a driver accepts your request, you will be notified with the details of the service to be provided. The transportation services are only permitted for the moving of items, and shall not include, nor permit them to include you personally. Should you request the driver to allow you to travel with him, you shall do so completely at your own risk.

Loadit shall not be held responsible for any loss or damage occasioned to your goods. Any claim arising from damage or loss to your goods must be handled between you and the driver. We shall facilitate as far as possible to assist you with any claims between you and the driver, and request that you email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the loss or damage, and how it was caused. This will allow us to consider any discipline or sanction, including suspension, of the driver from the services.
Should any dispute arise between you and the driver, both parties shall endeavour to resolve the dispute amicably. As the dispute is between two privately transacting parties, you and the driver may decide on using your own methods to resolve same, in accordance with the Laws of the Republic of South Africa.
