  • Terms and Conditions for signs and vehicle graphics, what do you use?

    Posted by Darren Summers on November 26, 2021 at 1:37 pm


    I apologise in advance for bringing this subject up again. I have searched the forum and found conversations that refer to a set of T’s & C’s posted years ago. But, all links to it are dead. It may well be that it’s in a part of the forum that I cannot see?
    Would someone be able to point me in the right direction, please?

    As far as I can see it a set of general terms and conditions would form the backbone of the company.
    However, a set of job-specific terms would be necessary depending on the type of job to help protect ourselves from job-specific issues?

    Although not necessary to be drawn up by a solicitor, it would be advised that one looked it over? I assume this would be by a contract law company?

    Let’s say that I use the T’s & C’s from the UK Signboards. This would be something we would post up on our website.
    Then, if we were doing a van, we would give the client a copy of the general terms and conditions as well as a set of vehicle graphics t’s & c’s too?

    If it was a sign, then a different set of T’s & C’s correct?

    Would the specific T’s & C’s need to be checked over by a solicitor too?

    Hash together some basic terms and conditions you feel cover you, and then take them to a local commercial solicitor to review them.

    The solicitor we used, asked a whole manner of questions, and scenario’s we’d never have anticipated or expected. Cost a few hundred quid years ago.

    We use clarity, so can have more specific terms to suite specific jobs, vans, signs etc in addition to the general terms. It’s still worth tweaking/changing them to suit individual jobs too.

    If you anticipate the customer is a clown, or there may be a problem with something (ie: electrician is fitting a feed, and the work isn’t completed in time) who’s liable and for what. Same if you’re travelling to site, and the vehicle’s not there/ready, include charges etc.

    Saves the arguments and debates later, and you can always offer a gesture of goodwill and help the customer out 👍

      Thanks David. We use clarity also. I think it’s worth getting a legal company involved too.

      If anyone does know how to access the Terms & Conditions on this site, please let me know – happy to pay for additional subscriptions – as long as it’s there!
