Parking & toll charges

PLEASE NOTE: If parking is not provided by the customer, parking costs will be added to the bill. Any toll/ congestion charges will also be added to the bill.

Pricing

Average house sizes based on number of bedrooms are used when we quote over the phone or email. ServLabs LTD reserve the right the amend quotation based on the size of the property upon inspection or survey or should the customer’s requirements change.

In high levels of infestation where our standard service may not be the most appropriate treatment we will advise and recommend the best service and the cost of doing this. As a customer you are within your right to decline an upgraded service but you will be charged should you choose to cancel the agreed service arrangement. For further details please refer to the services page on our web site or call the office landline.

Phone calls

Most of our phone calls are recorded for best practice. We reserve the right to use information in these calls to resolve any problems. At the time a booking is made this is a contract between ServLabs and the customer. The recording acts as proof of this contract and our terms and conditions are in place at this time.

Access

The customer must give ServLabs and their representatives access at the time and date agreed and prepare the property as described when booking the service. If keys are provided they must open and close all locks without any special efforts or skills. Failure to give us access will result in a cancellation/ reschedule fee of £95 for a 1 man team or £190 for a 2 man team (depending on treatment type) (ex VAT).
 

ServLabs cannot be held responsible for triggering any alarm systems. The customer must provide adequate information on disabling and resetting alarms and locks on the premises.


Customers are required to aid the technician in finding parking if necessary. Permits must be provided to the visiting representative if applicable, all parking costs/ toll charges will be added to the bill and borne by the customer.

Payment

ServLabs  accept the following types of payment-
 

1. Credit/ debit card

2. Cheque payments

Cheques should be made out to “ServLabs” and given directly to the visiting technician/ representative.

3. Invoice- bank transfer/ cheque in the post

 

(ONLY IF PREVIOUSLY AGREED & CONFIRMED WITH OFFICE)
On successful creation of account with ServLabs we offer payment terms of 7 days to commercial customers.

Cancellation & Deposit Policy

Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE.

All cancellations incur a charge of 50% of the treatment price.

Making an appointment over the phone or by email is a binding contract between the customer and ServLabs, in order to cancel you must do so by either email or over the phone with more than 24 hours’ notice. Last minute phone calls or emails will not be accepted and cancellation fee of the full amount of the job will apply.

By booking in over the phone or email you are entering a contract with ServLabs and you waive your rights to a 14 day cooling off period if the work is due to be carried out within the next 14 days.

Please note our current minimum call out charge is £150+VAT- if we arrive and you do not require our services, this includes if the problem is not a pest or it has been wrongly identified, this call out charge of £150+VAT or 50% of the treatment (whichever is higher) is payable.

If we arrive and you do not require our services, this includes if the problem is not a pest or it has been wrongly identified, this call out charge is payable.

We understand that at last minute things can change and you may not be able to make the appointment, so we are happy to wave the cancellation charge providing the job is re-booked within 7 days (please note: this does not apply for free of charge follow-up visits. You will be charged cancellation for follow-up visits if we are notified of cancellation later than 24 hours before the booking).

 

These terms and conditions are binding and ServLabs will invoice cancellation fees if necessary. Failure to pay cancellation fees within 7 days will mean the debt will be passed to our debt recovery specialists, in this case, the third party recovery agents exercise the right to also recover their costs which will increase the charge significantly.

Cancellation fees apply to the following:

  • No show by customer at visit date/time of technician.

  • Non-compliance with preparation list as supplied by company.

  • Customer cancellation.
     

Making an appointment over the phone or by email is a binding contract between the customer and ServLabs, in order to cancel you must do so by either email or over the phone with more than 24 hours’ notice. Last minute phone calls or emails will not be accepted and cancellation fee of the full amount of the job will apply.
 

Emergency jobs must be pre-paid in full or part paid if agreed. The full payment acts as a deposit and the full fee is therefore NON-REFUNDABLE in any case. (Note: Unless for unforeseen circumstances we are a fault for not attending in the allocated day).
 

Claims

Once a treatment has been carried out there are no grounds for a refund. ServLabs carry out treatments at the customer request. Treatments cannot be ‘un-done’ without significant cost (often more than the treatment itself).

If a customer has a problem with any of the work JG Pest Control undertake they are politely asked to voice all concerns in an email to – info@ServLabs.co.uk.

Our policy is to respond within 7 working days.

If necessary we will investigate all claims and complaints in order to present the best possible rectification. Any damage caused by us will be paid for ONLY if contractors/ materials are ordered through or accepted by ServLabs PRIOR to rectification works.

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience.

They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

The cookies used on this website have been categorised based on the categories found in the ICC UK Cookie guide.

A list of all the cookies used on this website by category is set out below.

 

Category 1: Strictly Necessary Cookies
 

These cookies enable services you have specifically asked for.

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.

Examples include:

  • Remembering previous actions (e.g. entered text) when navigating back to a page in the same session.

  • Managing and passing security tokens to different services within a website to identify the visitor's status (e.g. logged in or not)

  • To maintain tokens for the implementation of secure areas of the website

  • To route customers to specific versions/applications of a service, such as might be used during a technical migration
     

These cookies will not be used

  • To gather information that could be used for marketing to the user

Category 2: Performance Cookies

These cookies collect anonymous information on the pages visited

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

 

Examples include:

  • Web analytics - where the data collected is limited to the website operator's use only, for managing the performance and design of the site. These cookies can be third-party cookies but the information must be for the exclusive use of the publisher of the website visited.

  • Ad response rates - where the data is used exclusively for calculating response rates (click-through rates) to improve the effectiveness of advertising purchased on a site external to the destination website. If the same cookie is used to retarget adverts on a third-party site this would fall outside the performance category (see Category 4)

  • Affiliate tracking - where the cookie is used to let affiliates know that a visitor to a site visited a partner site some time later and if that visit resulted in the use or purchase of a product or service, including details of the product and service purchased. Affiliate tracking cookies allow the affiliate to improve the effectiveness of their site. If the same cookie is used to retarget adverts this would fall outside the performance category (see Category 4)

  • Error management - Measuring errors presented on a website, typically this will be to support service improvement or complaint management and will generally be closely linked with web analytics.

Testing designs - Testing variations of design, typically using A/B or multivariate testing, to ensure a consistent look and feel is maintained for the user of the site in the current and subsequent sessions.

Category 3: Functionality Cookies
These cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience
 

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites a website works.
 

Examples include:
 

  • Remembering settings a user has applied to a website such as layout, font size, preferences, colours etc.

  • Remembering a choice such as not to be asked again to fill in a questionnaire.

  • Detecting if a service has already been offered, such as offering a tutorial on future visits to the website.

  • Providing information to allow an optional service to function such as offering a live chat session.

  • Fulfilling a request by the user such as submitting a comment.

    These cookies should not be used to re-target adverts, if they are, they should be placed in category 4 as well. 

    By using our website you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

    Category 4: targeting cookies or advertising cookies

They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator's permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.

    Examples include:
