Terms of Service

The following are the terms and conditions that will govern the agreement between Ridera Technologies Limited hereinafter called “the company or Ridera” and “The User” hereinafter the called “client or customer”.


Although the company endeavours to reasonably protect and secure all items fragile or otherwise, the onus lies with the client to ensure that, loose and/or fragile pieces for example china, sensitive electronics, etc. are properly packed, padded and labeled accordingly, prior to our handling. (We highly recommend using our packing and pre-move services which include wrapping, packing, etc., to avoid possible overtime charges and ensure optimum protection of items).

Client’s Responsibility:
  • To properly prepare for pending relocation (i.e. all small pieces etc., should be cleared from surfaces, properly packed in boxes or bins and fragile pieces properly padded labeled and secured).
  • To pay all fees and charges as required.
  • To properly protect and secure valuables and important documents and personally carry these items if possible (The Company is not responsible for valuables not properly secured by client).
