If you wish to change or cancel your Order, you may contact the Operator whose details are in the Service confirmation email you will receive or you can contact us on the live chat facility on the website and app. There is no guarantee that the Operator will agree to your requests as they may have already started processing your Order. Cancellations or amendments made within 2 hours of the booking window are liable for a 50% charge of the original order fee.
Order Processing and Rejections: Once you have posted your Order on the Platform, it will be open to review by the relevant Operators and who will notify you by email that your Order has been accepted and the details of the relevant Operator. Please note that confirmation of acceptance of your order is only confirmed once you receive the specific email notification from the Operator.
Service Delivery and Timings: Estimated times for operator arrival and Service completion may be provided by the Operators and are only estimates. Neither we nor the Operators guarantee that Orders will be completed within the estimated times.
Operator Terms and Conditions: By placing an Order and having it accepted by an Operator you are entering into an agreement between yourself and the Operator company that accepted the order.
PLACING AN ORDER: SUBSCRIPTION PLAN BOOKINGS
First Wash Posting: Select your subscription plan and enter your personal details, the location address of your vehicle, vehicle details, your chosen first wash "Start Date", preferred day of the week and time of the day for following bookings.
Future Washes: For as long as you are an active subscriber and so long as there are no payment issues with your account, GoWashMyCar will make postings on your behalf using the details entered when starting your subscription plan. Bookings will take place on the following preferred day of the week at least 1 (one) month after your first wash date on a day and time slot that match your preferences.
Booking Amendments and Cancellations: Once you have received email confirmation of your next wash, you can request a different day and time via firstname.lastname@example.org or using the Chat Support option on the www.gowashmycar.com website or mobile applications.
We will endeavour to change your wash for your requested time but reserve the right to cancel the relevant wash if this is impossible due to operational issues and inflexible days and times given to us by you. In instances where wash bookings are cancelled, this wash can be rearranged with the agreement of both parties, including the following month. You will not be given a refund for that month's subscription fee.
ADDING EXTRAS TO SUBSCRIPTION BOOKINGS

Cancellation will take effect at the end of the current billing cycle unless within 7 days of the billing date. Any outstanding addons or other fees for previous washes will be charged to your payment card before cancellation.
Full Service Plan Cancellation: Because the Full Service plan offers a combination of services, the total cost of which is divided equally over 12 months, this plan has a non-cancellation policy. If Cancellation is requested and agreed, we will charge you the full cost of each service received up to that point, within the current 12 month billing cycle, before cancellation will take effect.
DISCLAIMER: **PLEASE NOTE** GOWASHMYCAR reserves the right to adjust the price quotation subject to inspection of the car. Excessively dirty cars may incur a surcharge. Your operator will inform you at the time.

Card payments: Please note that from time to time there may be delays with the processing of card payments and transactions; this may result in payments taking up to (60) days to be deducted from your bank account or charged to your credit or debit card. All card payments are processed by GOWASHMYCAR LTD, please contact customer support should you have any payment related queries.
Upon placing an order, your operator can request to view the card used for payment. The operator and GOWASHMYCAR reserve the right to cancel the order should the customer fail to produce the card used for payment.
Cancelled Orders: Due to standard banking procedures, once you have submitted an Order that you are paying for by credit or debit card and your payment has been authorised, your bank or card issuer will "ring-fence" the full amount of your Order.

You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor the relevant Operator will be responsible or liable to you in relation to a delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.
