In the event that this cancellation would cause prejudice to Transart Box , Transart Box would be entitled to full indemnification of its losses by the Ordering Customer.

5 - INSURANCE OF GOODS – (SEE ALSO SECTION 20)

Transart Box gives to the Ordering Customer the opportunity to purchase insurance against damage (ad valorem insurance) covering the goods transported by the Insurer up to the value declared by the Ordering Customer. The cap of the insurance is fixed at € 20,000.00 (twenty thousand euros) per item, being specified that for any declared value higher than € 20,000 (twenty thousand euros),  Transart Box must, beforehand, send a special request to the ad valorem insurer, who has the freedom to accept or refuse to insure the goods in question. In these circumstances, Transart Box may also refuse to transport goods which value is higher than € 20,000 (twenty thousand euros), Any declared value for an amount higher than the € 20,000 (twenty thousand euros), limit could not give rise to a compensation higher than the said cap, which the Ordering Customer accepts. The Ordering Customer guarantees that any person interested in the goods carried agrees not to seek compensation above the ceiling of compensation. It guarantees Transart Box of any claim in this respect.

This insurance is effective only after the Order Confirmation and the full payment of the Price.

This is an ad valorem insurance (damage insurance), intended to cover only material damage to the goods, to the exclusion of all other damages, including immaterial or indirect damage. An insurance certificate is available on the Website. See sect 20

Transart Box cannot be held responsible for an insufficient or inadequate declaration of value of the Ordering Customer. It is the Ordering Customer’s responsibility to take additional insurances if need be.

The payment of the insurance indemnity by the Insurer to the Ordering Customer (or their beneficiaries) will be conditioned on the demonstration of the quality and the interest in the claimant's actions and the signing of the required documents (Receipt & release, etc.).

Transart Box is not a broker, insurance agent or insurance intermediary. The Ordering Customer agrees to provide Transart Box with all the elements necessary for the declaration of the incident and Transart Box will take the necessary steps with the ad valorem insurer. 

Compensation of the Ordering Customer or of cargo interests by the Insurer compensate their full loss. Therefore, no other compensation can be sought from Transart Box and/or its substitutes. Acceptance of the insurance compensation means waiver to claim against Transart Box and/or its substitutes. 

Artwork is not generally held/stored by Transart Box. In the event we have to store or hold – additional cover may be required and should be discussed with Transart Box prior to handing over to us. In the event we need to store – we will store it as safely as possible and secure it as safely as possible. We do not offer storage in general and therefore no cover is in place for and not limited to fire, theft, accidental damage, etc. If additional security is required we will try and find alternative solutions.

When packaging and securing are carried out by the Ordering Customer or any other cargo interest, and photographs are sent to Transart Box to obtain confirmation that they have been carried out correctly, Transart Box will endeavour to respond as soon as possible with regard to what is visible in the photographs received.

Where Transart Box undertakes to set-up and/or install goods it merely means to set-up/install the good on/in the indicated spot. It excludes any construction and/or handy work (such as drilling, knocking in a nail, setting-up a picture rail or table etc…)

Except in case of personal fault on his part, Transart Box is not responsible for intermediary agents and/or Substitutes that have been imposed on him by the Ordering Customer or the public authorities.

8.3 Transport and customs clearance times

The departure and arrival dates communicated by Transart Box are purely indicative. Transart Box tries to meet these estimated times, according to the nature and hazards of each mode of transport.

When a meeting or deadline is set-up for the delivery and expressly agreed in writing by Transart Box , Transart Box makes its best effort to meet it. Transart Box will not be liable for any delay for reasons out of its control, as for instance unusual customs delays or unexpected customs checks.

9 - NOTICES OF DAMAGE

Should it not be possible for Transart Box 's sub-contractor to check the condition and quantity of the goods to be transported or their packing (when this has not been previously confirmed by Transart Box in photographs) at the time of pick-up, due to the fact that the packaging does not allow these elements to be checked, the Ordering Customer confirms that any reservations in this respect made by the carrier at the time of pick-up will be deemed to have been confirmed.

Notices of damage on Delivery must be made in accordance with the applicable regulations; they must at least be dated, express, written, detailed, precise and relate to the goods and be mentioned on the transport document. They must be confirmed in accordance with the applicable regulations and also be sent by the consignee to Transart Box by email to the email address: [email protected] within twenty-four (48) hours with the words “urgent” in the subject of the e-mail.

The Ordering Customer, if he is not the consignee of the goods, guarantees that the consignee will issue a notice of damage in accordance with the regulations and will inform Transart Box , at the same time and in the same way (express, written, detailed and precise reservations relating to the goods).

The Ordering Customer agrees to preserve the goods pending the instructions of Transart Box and, in particular, to allow the intervention of a surveyor to determine the extent and causes of the damage when it appears necessary to Transart Box and/or the Insurer.

Subject to any amendments to the applicable regulations, a notice of damage (dated, express, written, detailed, precise and relating to the goods) must be sent within the following deadlines:

Maritime transport:

10 - LIABILITY

10.1. Liability of the Ordering Customer

The Ordering Customer is liable for all consequences of the absence, inadequacy or defectiveness of the packaging, packing, marking or labelling of the goods, unless Transart Box had agreed to perform these operations at the time of the Transport and/or packaging order and that the corresponding Price was paid by the Ordering Customer.

The Ordering Customer is responsible for all the consequences of a breach of the obligation to give information regarding the carriage and to declare the very exact nature and specificity of the goods, especially when the latter requires special measures, particularly with regard to its value and/or the greed it is likely to arouse, its dangerousness or its fragility.

The Ordering Customer is responsible for all the consequences of delivering to Transart Box ’s Substitute(s) illegal, prohibited or embargoed goods. It guarantees them, as well as Transart Box , from any claim resulting from the non-respect of this prohibition.

The Ordering Customer alone bears, without any recourse against Transart Box , the consequences, whatever they may be, resulting from statements or documents that are erroneous, incomplete, inapplicable (for example, if the nature of the goods declared by the Ordering Customer to Transart Box does not correspond to the goods actually transported), or provided lately, including the information necessary for the transmission of any summary declaration required by the customs regulations.

In case of impediment to delivery, refusal of the goods by the consignee, as in case of failure of the consignee for whatever reason, the Price will remain due in full by the Ordering Customer. The latter will also have to pay storage costs, costs for returning the goods, for destroying it, for sale rescue and generally for all costs linked with the Shipment.

In case of immobilization of the means of transport on delivery or removal of goods, the Ordering Customer will be invoiced according to the rules applicable to the relevant mode of transport.

The Ordering Customer shall be solely liable in the event of non-payment of Transart Box for any reason whatsoever, and in particular in the event that a direct debit cannot be made from its bank account for any reason whatsoever and for example in the event of insufficient funds in its bank account, a payment ceiling having been reached or an expired bank card. It is the sole responsibility of the Ordering Customer to ensure that the payment is properly made, i.e. that its account has been debited in favour of Transart Box 's account. In case of any doubt the Ordering Customer shall ask Transart Box .

10.2. Liability of Transart Box  

Transart Box , in its capacity as ‘shipper’, assumes a dual responsibility: (i) as a guarantor for its Substitutes’ act/omissions, according to the legal regime applicable to them, and (ii) for its evidenced personal acts/omissions.

When Transart Box acts as a customs representative, whether it carries out the customs service itself or subcontracts it to any 3rd party, its liability can only be incurred in the event of proven fault, within the period provided for in article 15 of these general terms and conditions and within the limits and conditions provided for in articles 10.2.2 and 10.2.3.

Whatever Transart Box 's service:

- Unilateral set-off of the amount of alleged damage with the Price due to Transart Box for the transport operation in question or for other transport operations is strictly prohibited. The Ordering Customer undertakes not to set-off. If it however sets-off, the Ordering Customer will have to pay, in addition to the Price, interests and fixed fee for late payment, plus 20% of the ex-VAT Price of the invoice that is not/belatedly paid, together with compensation for any loss suffered by Transart Box , including court and lawyer fees if Transart Box has to seize a Court. 

- Only proven, direct and foreseeable material damage may be compensated by Transart Box under the conditions set out in article 13 of the contract.

10.2.1. Liability for the Substitutes’ acts/omissions  

In the context of its liability as a shipper guarantor of its Substitutes designated by it to carry out the transport, the liability of Transart Box is limited to that incurred by the Substitute in respect of the consignment entrusted to it. When the limits of liability of the Substitutes are not known or do not result from mandatory, legal or regulatory provisions, they are deemed identical to those relating to the personal liability of Transart Box provided for in Article 10.2.2 of the present General Terms and Conditions. In the event that the packaging of the Shipment is not carried out by Transart Box and/or one of its sub-contractors, and that it is not possible for the latter to check the packaging, securing, condition of the Shipment and/or its quantity prior to taking charge of it, Transart Box 's liability can only be incurred on the condition that it is shown that the damage occurred during transport and is not related to the quality of the packaging or securing. In any event, the limitation of liability in Article 10.2.2 shall apply.  

10.2.2. Personal liability of Transart Box  

In all cases where the personal liability of Transart Box is engaged, for whatever cause and reason, this personal liability is strictly limited, for all damage to the goods which is attributable to the transport operation as a result of loss and damage, and for all the consequences which may occur, at £ 13 per kilogram of gross weight of missing or damaged goods without exceeding, whatever the weight, volume, dimensions, nature or value of the goods concerned, an amount greater than the gross weight of the goods to a maximum of 200 kilograms.

It is not Transart Box 's responsibility to ensure that the payment made to it has indeed been made by the Ordering Customer, in particular in the case of direct debit due to a purchase from the Ordering Customer on any other 3rd party site.

10.2.3. Transart Box ’s exclusion of liability  

Transart Box and its Substitutes are not liable for damages / wear & tear prior to them taking the goods in their custody.

Transart Box is not liable when the Shipment do not correspond to the description provided by the Ordering Customer (whether in case of damage or in case of customs control) and/or when the Ordering Customer and/or the consignee have not allowed a surveyor mandated by Transart Box and/or the Insurer to intervene after the goods have been declared damaged and/or lost.

It is the responsibility of the Ordering Customer to ensure that the debit made by Transart Box can be and has been successful. In particular, it is incumbent upon the Ordering Customer to ensure at the time of each order the validity of the registered bank card and its possible spending limit over a given period. Transart Box shall not be liable in the event of any difficulty/delay in payment by the Ordering Customer and shall not be required to inform the Ordering Customer of this.

10.2.4. Return costs of the goods  

The eventual return costs of the goods are always supported by the Ordering Customer, even in case of damage, except when they are covered by the Insurer. Price is earned by Transart Box , even where the Shipment is lost or damaged.
