Frequently asked questions

  What happens if I make a late cancellation on a booking?

We do have a minimum hour charge to ensure that all workers receive a fair days pay. This also allows our workers to be compensated should there be no requirement for them after they have been booked for work. If a job is cancelled the day before, there will be no charge, if the job is cancelled 2 hours prior to the start of a job the minimum charge will stand.

  What happens if a temporary worker does not show up to work?

If a worker has not shown up for a shift due to either illness or absence, we will endeavour to find a replacement as soon as possible. A consultant is in the office from 6am-7pm at all times, and will be in constant contact with the client updating them with the progress of the replacement worker. You will not be charged for a minimum for the replacement candidate and will only pay them from the time they arrive.

  What happens if I am not happy with a workers performance?

If a client is unhappy with a worker, they need to contact a consultant immediately. We will then endeavour to find a replacement as soon as possible.

  Can I book a crew for Events/Exhibitions or Labouring work, for less than 8 hours?

Yes, we offer a 6,4 and 2 hour call within Central London. When enquiring about a job with one of our consultants simply ask if your location falls within these parameters.

  What if I book a 4hour call for a crew for Events/Exhibitions but suspect it may go over?

No problem, simply inform one of our consultants that the booking may go over time and the 6 hour charge will stand. We are not in the practice of booking our workers for more than one job a day. This ensures that the crew can stay if required.
