- About us. Thank you for taking the time to read these terms of service. They apply to services (Services) provided by Removal Stars Limited and buzzvault Limited (we / our / us) via buzzmove.com, gobuzzvault.com, buzzsurvey app and the buzzvault app and any other websites, apps or other products (Products) that we may introduce from time to time. By using any of our Products or Services you agree to be bound by these terms.

B. About our Products and Services
- Using them. Our Products and Services provide you with an independent
platform that enables you to obtain accurate and competitive quotes from a number of removal
companies (Member Companies) and then book a removal job with the one you
select. To help with this, we’ve developed a number of tools that can:
- easily catalogue your possessions using our unique video survey tool, either by yourself or by having an expert do it for you; and
- securely store a list of your possessions in the buzzvault app (always in accordance with your rights under applicable data protection laws).
- We also provide a platform for home and contents insurance:
- provide you with a fair and accurate home insurance quote based on your list of possessions, which you can then purchase and administer from within the buzzvault app.
- Member Companies. We are not party to any contract between you and a Member Company for the performance of any removal job or any other products or services provided by that Member Company. A Member Company will enter into a separate contract with you for the provision of their removal services, and in no circumstances should we be considered an agent or representative of that Member Company. If you need to make any changes to or cancel your removal job after making a booking via one of our Products, you must do this directly with the Member Company. This may affect the agreed price of your removal job or that Member Company’s ability to perform it on the agreed date.
- Surveys. We need you to build a list of your belongings so that we can provide you with fair removals and home insurance. You can do this yourself via our buzzvault app, which you can download from the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store. Alternatively, if you need some assistance, (with live video guidance from a trained surveyor), this can be arranged at the time you make your booking for removal quotes.
- Intellectual property rights. All intellectual property rights in our Products and materials belong to us/our licensors. Where appropriate, you are granted a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable licence to install and/or use our Products on your own devices for your own personal non-commercial use, provided that at all times you comply with these terms.
- How we sell insurance. We are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA registration no. 796481) as an insurance intermediary. Insurance products are quoted and sold to consumers via the buzzvault app. These terms do not relate to the sale or provision of any insurance products. You will be provided with an Insurance Product and Information Document (commonly known as an “IPID”) and further terms and conditions relating to the insurance product you wish to purchase from within the app at the appropriate time.
- Suitability of third party products. We are an intermediary and do not sell removal services or insurance cover ourselves. We have no control over these third parties, so please ensure that you have checked the adequacy, capability and suitability of your chosen Member Company or insurer before purchasing from them. You acknowledge that you will not have access to the entire market of removal companies or insurance products via our Products. We are not responsible or liable for the actions of third parties.
C. Your responsibilities
- Registration/your account. You will need to register for and open an account with us before using our Products. You must be at least 18 years old to register. When doing so you agree that all of details you provide will be true and accurate and kept up to date. Once registered you must keep your login and password confidential and notify us immediately if you suspect that your login is being used without authorisation. You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for all actions carried out under your login. We may disable your login at any time if, in our sole discretion, you have breached these terms, any information provided during registration is false, or if there is any risk to the security or integrity of our Products and services.
- Things you must not do. You may only use our Products and Services for their intended purposes. You agree that, when using our Products or Services, you will not do or promote anything illegal, unlawful or harmful to any other person or another person’s property or privacy, or anything that infringes on our or any third party’s rights. You are expressly forbidden from carrying out any reverse engineering on our Products, using any data collected from our Products or Services for any purpose, carrying out data mining, harvesting, extraction or scraping unless we have given you written permission otherwise. We have sole discretion in deciding whether you have done any of these things. If you have, we may terminate or suspend your account and notify the appropriate persons (whether a Member Company or the authorities, as appropriate) without any notice to you.
- Things you must do. In order to provide a reliable service for you, our
Member Companies and other users or our Products and Services and our other affiliates, we
ask that you note the following:
- When obtaining removal or insurance quotes. You must provide accurate answers to the questions asked in order to be given an accurate quote. Failure to provide accurate, truthful and fully complete answers which disclose all of the relevant facts relating to your situation may result in your booking being cancelled or insurance cover being invalidated. If you are unsure whether something should be disclosed, disclose it.
- Prior to purchasing removal services or insurance cover. You are responsible for checking that all of the information provided on a quote to you is accurate, complete, correct and not misleading and that all relevant facts have been disclosed. Any mistakes should be amended prior to your purchase. Failure to do this may result in the Member Company being unable to perform the removal on the agreed date, or insurance cover being invalidated.
- Leaving reviews. Once your removal job has been completed, we may ask for your feedback in relation to your experience of using our Products or your chosen Member Company. This is not mandatory, but we’d really appreciate it. You agree that we may publicly display your name and review as we see fit.
- Your liability to us. You agree that you will be liable to us for any damage, loss, claim, demand, liability or expense (including reasonable legal fees) that we may suffer or incur arising out of or in connection with your use of the Products or our Services and/or your breach of these terms.
