For security/safety reasons and/or on the request of the authorities, the Customer may be asked to undergo a search or a scan of their Baggage (using X-rays or another technique). If a Customer is not available, their Baggage may be scanned or searched in their absence, with a view to checking, in particular, whether it contains the items referred to in article 5.3 “Luggage content and prohibited item” in the herein terms and conditions. If a Customer refuses to comply with such requests, Alfred may deny them and their Baggage carriage.

9.1 Booking verification
For this Service, a booking summary is sent to the client upon validation of the booking.
The summary includes: date and time of Luggage drop-off and pick-up, location of the drop-off, location of the pick-up, number of pieces of Luggage, total price.
This summary must be presented by the Customer to Alfred or Alfred’s contractors at the time of Luggage drop-off and at the time of pick-up.
It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure the size and weight of their luggage are within their booked allowance on Alfred’s Website during booking. For health and safety reasons Alfred cannot transport bags over 25kg.
The price of Alfred services is calculated based on a set of variants, namely: volumes to be carried (quantity and dimensions); kilometres to be covered between the collection point and the point of delivery; the date of collection and delivery; gas prices fluctuation; hours chosen for the collection point and the point of delivery; number of agents necessary to perform the service, operational availabilities, transportation means, tolls fees and possible discount amounts…
The price will be calculated automatically using the data entered by the Customer when filling out the form on the website. If they do not correspond to the truth, Alfred before collection of the goods, reserves the right to change the price by performing a new calculation with the correct data or not to perform the service at all.
Generally speaking, Alfred recognises two types of transportation:
9.3 Troubleshooting issues & Particular Conditions
9.3.1 Customer wants access to the items after collection or during the storage
Alfred may be able to dedicate an emergency team to accommodate customer urgently needing to access items collected or stored by Alfred. Customer for such service will be liable to pay a penalty fixed fee of 200€, in addition to the cost of the collection-delivery service.
Note: For long-distance transfers, meeting the customer can be problematic, as the route change may take longer to satisfy than delivery to the original drop-off point ordered by the customer. Feasibility and common sense must apply to what is, or is not, feasible.
Please contact : firstname.lastname@example.org
9.3.2 Customer wants to change the conditions or itinerary of service
The Customer is solely and exclusively responsible for indicating the conditions of the service and must identify these elements thoroughly and fairly, at the time of the request of the service: the places of reception and delivery of the goods; the date and time for the reception and delivery of the goods; the contact person to whom to deliver the goods.
The Customer is not granted the right to suspend the transport, modify the place provided for delivery or designate a recipient other than the one indicated initially, without Alfred’s confirmation in writing. In such cases, Customer agrees additional fees may apply. The customer, if the request for modification intervenes 48 hours before the service, will be able to accept the additional expenses or cancel his order without expenses.
9.3.3 Customer misses the collection/delivery
In the case of a collection where the client does not show up at the agreed meeting point within 30 minutes after the scheduled time, Alfred reserves the right to cancel the reservation and, in these circumstances, no refund will be made.
In the event that the delivery is not possible until 30 minutes after the time previously set by the Client, Alfred's team will promptly contact the Client by all means of communication indicated at the time of the order in order to find a solution or to reschedule the pickup/delivery of the goods.
Specific case: if the flight or train arriving in France is significantly delayed, Alfred will do its best to modify the pick-up and delivery time to accommodate the Customer.
9.3.4 Customer “no show” policy
Exceeding 30 minutes of the stipulated time, and if it is still not possible to complete the service, and the rescheduling is not a reality within a maximum of 3 days, for a reason attributable to the Customer, the goods will be treated as "Unclaimed Goods", and the Customer will incur on the payment of all costs incurred for this purpose by Alfred.
After 30 days after receipt of the goods, the goods will be given as lost, and Alfred may proceed to the destruction of the goods using the most appropriate means to each specific case.
9.3.5 In case Alfred misses the collection/delivery
Suppose the collection and/or delivery are not possible to do up to 15 minutes after the time slot previously stipulated by the Customer, namely by no-show or delay Alfred agent. Alfred team will promptly contact the Customer through the means indicated for this purpose, in the request, to find a solution for the collection/delivery of the goods or to reschedule the same.
Exceeding 30 minutes of the stipulated time, and if it is still impossible to complete the service for reasons attributable to Alfred, rescheduling is not a reality for the Customer. It is the Customer’s right to leave the location and require that the goods be delivered to him/her elsewhere and at his/her choice, and Alfred will bear the expenses with the new delivery up to 1000€ per order and subject to the article 6 of the appendix 1.
9.3.6 Indicative Fees (not contractual) that may apply
Customers are aware that service level of Alfred depends on a lean and secure supply chain. Alfred’s has at heart to reach 100% customer satisfaction rate. To achieve that goal, the planning of Alfred’s agents takes into account miscellaneous events to give customers flexibility regarding the schedule. However, a major modification of an order or a no show on one booking, implies putting at risk other customers arriving, in transit and/or departing to airports/train stations.
Alfred will do its best to accommodate its clients with the most accurate costs. Alfred does not intend to pass on unreasonable costs to its clients, who may already be struggling to manage their travel itinerary.
That being said, customers must be aware, in case Alfred’s schedule is fully booked, we rely on selected co-contractors to make fast deliveries. The costs of such service are premium as the driver will be dedicated to accommodate the situation of Alfred’s customer.
This price range is indicative but representative of eventual costs.
Storage is an act whereby Alfred receives an item belonging to someone else (customer). Alfred is obligated to look after it and to return it at the time agreed in the Booking. Storage involves three elements: drop-off of a transportable item, obligation to look after the item and obligation to return it.
Alfred does not offer this service on its website. The Storage services are included within the scope of Delivery services. Storage duration of is meant to be less than 12 hours, duration between pick-up and same day delivery.
The premises must be a private space used regularly by Alfred and where the Alfred use is authorized.
Alfred expressly agrees to keep the premises clean, enclosed, covered and off-limits to the public and to Customer.
Alfred reserve the right to check the contents of Luggage when it is dropped off and to refuse to store the Luggage if the Customer refuses the check or if its Luggage contents do not comply with terms and conditions (including its annex) herein relating to the nature of belongings stored. If Alfred refuses to accept non-compliant luggage, or if the Customer refuses to have their luggage checked, the reservation will be cancelled without reimbursement of payments made online by the Customer.
Alfred will take all appropriate measures to be able to identify the Luggage dropped off by each Customer and therefore to be able to return the correct Luggage to the correct Customer. Failing this, Alfred will be liable for any error when returning Luggage.
The Booking summary received by the Customer includes some recommendations such as using a padlock on the Luggage, for the Customer, or checking the content of the Luggage before being picked-up by Alfred.
10.4 Extra fees
By default, the following fees will be applied, in accordance with these conditions, in the event that baggage storage is required due to the customer's failure to collect/deliver the baggage.
Alfred reserves the right to revise these fees downward or upward on a case-by-case basis, in order to assess unforeseen or particular situations.
