CANCELLATION & DEPOSIT POLICY
Making an appointment over the phone or by email is a binding contract between the customer and Crest Pest Control, 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.
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, we reserve the right to make a call out charge.
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 Crest Pest Control 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.
