HOW IT WORKS
We help Advertisers to grow their business by connecting with Customers in their local area.
We help Customers to identify and connect with Advertisers who provide valuable Services and Equipment rentals in their local area.
Advertisers can create as many listings as they wish, for free. Advertisers may include images, text, pricing information, and availability details within their listings. Advertisers can send messages back to any Customers who have messaged them.
Customers can sign up for free and can search for Advertisers using keywords, and results appear on an interactive map. Customers can send messages to Advertisers and can book and make payments via the Website.
Hire Fees are paid by Customers for any Services or Equipment that they choose to hire. Payments are handled by our third-party payment provider. Hire Fees are held in escrow until Delivery has been provided. Our Commission is deducted from the Hire Fee before the balance is released to the Advertiser.
ROLE OF LOKALROO
We are acting as a neutral facilitator only, by providing an information and classified service that brings together Advertisers and Customers of Equipment and Services. We are not a party to any transaction for the hire of Equipment or Services between any Advertisers and Customers that may originate on or through this Website. All information about particular Equipment and Services is supplied by the Advertiser and not by us. The price and all other terms of any rental agreement are contractual obligations between the Advertiser and Customer. We are not involved at any time.
We do not and cannot verify the information that Advertisers supply nor can we guarantee the Equipment or Services that they offer. We are not involved in, are not responsible for and we assume no liability in respect of any Advertisers, quotes, information supplied, prices, contracts or anything related to Equipment or Services between Advertisers and Customers.
We do not and cannot verify whether Advertisers hold relevant licences, certifications, permits, or qualifications (“Qualifications”) that may be required for the Services or Equipment that they offer in their local area. It is up to the Customer to check for any Qualifications before making a booking with any Advertiser.
We urge You to make your own enquiries about any User before engaging in a rental agreement with that party and that You do your own due diligence to verify all Users, information, Qualifications, Equipment and/or Services independently.
