storage, where such damage arises due to negligence on our part.
61. Where damage to premises or property, other than the goods being submitted for removal or storage, does occur we must ask that you inform us immediately and note the damage on the worksheet or delivery receipt. In the absence of such notification we will not be able to accept any liability for the damage.
NOTIFICATION OF CLAIMS & TIME LIMITS FOR CLAIMS

LAW AND JURISDICTION
68. This contract shall be subject to exclusive English law and jurisdiction.
EXTRA CONDITIONS THAT APPLY TO THE STORAGE OF GOODS
69. If you have failed to provide an address in accordance with clause 28 or if you fail to respond to our correspondence then we shall be entitled to publish notices in an area from which the goods were removed. The publication of such notice shall be accepted as valid communication with you.
70. It is important that we both know what you have in store. Where we prepare an inventory of the goods taken into store and this is forwarded to you this must be checked. You must inform us, as soon as possible, of any inaccuracies. It shall be assumed that if you do not bring any inaccuracies to our attention within 7 days that you are in agreement with the contents of the inventory. The 7 day period can be extended if you request a time extension, within the 7 day period, and the same is confirmed in writing by us. We will not unreasonably refuse to grant such an extension of time.
71. We reserve the right to review our storage charges periodically. We will inform you of any change in the applicable rates by giving you notice in writing not less than 2 months before the change in rates. The new rates will apply from the end of that 2 month period.

74. If you decide to collect the goods rather than having them delivered then we reserve the right to charge a reasonable hand out charge for handing them over.

EXTRA CONDITIONS THAT APPLY TO OVERSEAS REMOVALS
75. The following terms apply only where the goods are destined for or are received from a place overseas:
(a) We will accept liability only for loss or damage to goods when it occurs whilst they are in our actual possession. For the avoidance of any doubt goods will be deemed to remain in our possession when the carrying vehicle is being carried on a ferry whether the vehicle’s crew are actually in the vehicle or not. In such circumstances our liability will be ascertained as if it were a domestic removal. If the loss or damage occurs whilst the goods are in possession of another party, such as a shipping line, we will not be liable and you will have to pursue any claim against that party;
(b)Where we engage an international transport operator, shipping company or airline, to convey your goods to or from a place, port or airport, we do so on your behalf and the contract with that carrier shall be subject to any terms and conditions set out by that carrier;
(c)The carrier referred to at clause 75(a) and (b) may restrict his liability by reference to contractual terms and conditions and international conventions. These may severely restrict the potential liability that the carrier has to you;
(d) Furthermore you may become liable for General Average contribution (that is the costs incurred to preserve the carrying vessel and cargo in certain circumstances), salvage costs and costs of forward transmission;
(e) You are therefore strongly recommended to arrange adequate marine/transit insurance cover over the goods. This is your sole responsibility and we will not in any way accept liability if you fail to arrange adequate or appropriate insurance cover over the goods;
(f) We will not accept liability for goods confiscated, seized or removed by Customs Authorities, or similar bodies and Government Agencies other than in circumstances where such confiscation, seizure or removal occurs due to our negligence.
