When and how you pay for your quote will depend on the payment terms outlined in your quote. There are different payment terms offered for different jobs and from different Providers.


Where to find payment terms 

Once on your listing page, you can click on any quote to expand the quote and payment terms. You will see payment terms highlighted in the below image. Keep reading below for what each payment term means.


What are the different payment terms?


Type 1 - Truckit Pay

Truckit Pay is a secure payment option where you will pay the total quote amount upfront at the time of booking. The money will then be held in a secure holding account on behalf of your Transport Provider. Once the item(s) have been confirmed by yourself as delivered, the money will be released from the holding account to the Provider's bank account.

Type 2 - Booking Deposit

If the payment terms are one of the below 'Booking Deposit' payment terms, you will ONLY pay the Booking Deposit online at the time of booking and the remaining balance of the quote will be paid offline, directly to your provider by an agreed payment method


On Collection

Pay the Booking Deposit online via Credit Card or PayPal and then pay the remaining balance of your quote directly to your Transport Provider at the time of them collecting the goods.


On  Delivery

Pay the Booking Deposit online via Credit Card or PayPal and then pay the remaining balance of your quote directly to your Transport Provider at the time of them delivering the goods.


Upfront*

Pay the Booking Deposit online via Credit Card or PayPal and then pay the remaining balance of your quote directly to your Transport Provider upfront, before they collect the goods. 


Part Payment Upfront*

Pay the Booking Deposit online via Credit Card or PayPal and then pay part of the remaining balance of your quote directly to your Transport Provider upfront, before they collect the goods. Then pay the remainder upon collection or delivery.



*If the provider requests part or full payment upfront, Truckit always suggests using PayPal or Credit Card as these are secure payment options which provide recourse options in the unlikely event of a dispute. Always do your own due diligence before making payment to a Provider.
