GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The following conditions are applicable for all services performed by Dansk Auto Logik A/S in and outside Denmark unless other specifications have been agreed upon or result from obligatory legal provisions.
Unless other agreements have been made the CMR Act applies for all transport. However, Dansk Auto Logik has increased the compensations limits (see 3.).
The business of Dansk Auto Logik is based on transport of vehicles that can start and drive (automotive). In many cases, a vehicle is reloaded at one of our terminals and it must be able to start during the entire transport from collection to delivery. If a vehicle is unable to start, and it is necessary to jump start the vehicle, Dansk Auto Logik is entitled to charge an extra fee of DKK 300.00.
The vehicle must have sufficient fuel for it to be handled safely during transportation. Electrical vehicles must be charged with a minimum of 10% electricity to ensure that the battery does not discharge fully during transport. If the vehicle does not hold sufficient electricity, the driver can refuse to load the vehicle. In such case, Dansk Auto Logik is entitled to charge for a failed transport (see 1.a). Necessary filling of fuel or electricity will be invoiced at Dansk Auto Logik’s current price.
Dansk Auto Logik does not carry out offshore transports, only to Bornholm in Denmark. Normal transports require that the vehicle can steer, reverse, start (jump start), brake and the vehicle must be able to withstand being parked backwards (against the direction of travel) on the car transporter. Both hand and foot breaks must be fully functional. If any of the aforementioned requirements is not fulfilled, the transport cannot be completed by normal transport.
If, at our terminals, it is found, when reloading a vehicle ordered by normal transport, that the vehicle is unable to start – nor with a booster – and the vehicle must be transported further by a special car transporter equipped with towing winch, Dansk Auto Logik is entitled to charge an extra fee of DKK 1.000.00.
If the vehicle does not meet the abovementioned requirements for normal transport, existing customers can order a winch transport against an extra fee of DKK 1.000. A winch transport is only offered within Denmark and only to bridged islands. When the order for a winch transport is placed, it is essential that the customer informs about the need for a winch transport. Otherwise, Dansk Auto Logik will charge a fee similar to a failed transport (see 1.a).
Dansk Auto Logik does not transport vehicles where one or more of the following conditions apply – neither with normal transport nor winch transport:
- The steering wheel is locked or unable to steer
- The wheels cannot turn
- The vehicle cannot roll
- It is not possible to sit in the driver’s seat
- The vehicle leaks large amounts of oil/liquids
- There are loose parts on the vehicle that can risk falling off during transport
- The height of the car exceeds 3,2 meters in Denmark
- The height of the car exceeds 3 meters outside Denmark
Dansk Auto Logik charges an extra fee of DKK 500.00 for transport of a vintage car (old timer).
Dansk Auto Logik reserves the right to invoice for the cost of cleaning if oil/liquids are spilled from a vehicle during transport.
Dansk Auto Logik does not transport loose items that cannot be placed safely inside the vehicle to be transported.
1.a) FAILED TRANSPORT
A transport is defined as failed when collection cannot be completed due to conditions that Dansk Auto Logik is not responsible for. A failed transport is always invoiced at the transport rate, however, maximum DKK 500.00.
For transports outside Denmark, special conditions apply for failed transports.
1.b) DELIVERY TERMS IN DENMARK AND DAY-TO- DAY SERVICES
When calculating the leadtime, the order date is defined as day-0, if the order is received by 12:00 AM and the car is ready for transport. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, our expected leadtime is maximum two business days after the order date if the Great Belt bridge (Storebælt) is not to be crossed. If the vehicle needs to cross the Great Belt bridge, the leadtime is up to four business days.
There are special leadtimes for transports to Bornholm and for transports outside Denmark.
Day-to-Day delivery is offered for transports in Denmark against an express fee. For delivery on the following business day, the order must be received no later than 10:00 AM on day-0. During peak times, Day-to-Day delivery may not be possible to order.
Cancellation of a transport in Denmark can be cancelled free of charge as long as the task has not been initiated. If the driver has started his route after the car, the cancellation will be invoiced with the price of the transport, however max. DKK 500.00. If the driver has loaded the car, the full transport price will be invoiced.
The following guidelines apply to cancelling a transport booked for collection abroad:
- Cancellation before Friday at 12:00 AM: 0 % of the transport rate
- Cancellation before Monday at 12:00 AM: 80 % of the transport rate
- Cancellation after Monday at 12:00 AM: 100 % of the transport rate
Dansk Auto Logik’s liability begins when one of the company’s employees takes over a vehicle. Dansk Auto Logik’s liability ends when the vehicle is delivered and signed for by the consignee, or another person appointed by him. If no receipt is issued, Dansk Auto Logik’s liability ends when the vehicle is physically delivered. If delivery takes place outside opening hours, liability ends when the vehicle is delivered, locked and placed at the designated consignee or at a place appointed by the consignee. Unless the recipient of the car notifies otherwise in writing, the outlets previously chosen by Dansk Auto Logik are considered to be approved by the recipient of the car.
Dansk Auto Logik is responsible for transport damage that Dansk Auto Logik may cause to the car during the liability period. Dansk Auto Logik is not liable for damage or delay as a result of force majeure, which means, among other things: wars, rebellion, civil disturbances, pandemics, strikes or lockouts, release of nuclear energy, natural disasters (including flooding, avalanches, hailstorms, hurricanes, etc.).
Excluded in Dansk Auto Logik’s liability is indirect loss including a consignee’s or a dealer’s consequential loss due to delayed or hindered delivery. Dansk Auto Logik does not cover the costs that a customer may have when choosing to order transportation from an alternative supplier because of delayed or prevented delivery from Dansk Auto Logik.
Dansk Auto Logik is not liable for damages which are not visible due to the manufacturer’s transport protection cover from the factory. Dansk Auto Logik cannot be held liable for damages which are not likely to have occurred during the transport and which could not be seen by the carrier.
As the transport prices are based on transport with open car transporters, Dansk Auto Logik is not liable for damage to windows, windscreens and glass roofs in the form of stone chips, nor is Dansk Auto Logik liable for cracks that have occurred due to tension in the glass. Likewise, small scratches and paint chips do not qualify as a damage, if they can be mended by polish or paint stick and as such they are not claimable.
Dansk Auto Logik does not cover damages on used vehicles, unless the damage is clearly a transport damage that has occurred during the transport by Dansk Auto Logik. Goods, accessories, spare parts etc. that are placed in the vehicles are not covered by Dansk Auto Logik. Furthermore, Dansk Auto Logik is not liable for damages that occur because of the nature and condition of the vehicle including mechanical and electronic defects / wear and tear as well as defects on batteries.
It is the customer’s responsibility to prepare the vehicle for safe transport by open car transport. Antennas are to be removed and placed in a door pocket. If loose parts are placed in the cabin or in the trunk, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the parts are safely secured so that they cannot cause damage and that there is no danger of doors or tailgate jumping open during transport. Tires in the trunk should lie horizontally.
Dansk Auto Logik is not responsible for any papers that should follow the car. If the papers are not handed out when the car is picked up, the matter must be resolved between the buyer, seller and/or the ordering part.

2. ASSEMBLY TASKS / CONVERSION / EQUIPMENT FOR COMMERCIAL VEHICLES
When Dansk Auto Logik mounts, converts, or furnish vehicles according to the buyer’s specifications, the buyer is required to thoroughly review the vehicle at the time of receipt. Guidelines for submitting claims are the same as for transport damage (see 1.g).
Unless another acceptance deadline is stated in an offer, Dansk Auto Logik is bound by an offer when the customer accepts this within two weeks from the submission of the offer.
Acceptance of offers and confirmation thereof from Dansk Auto Logik is considered binding and cannot be terminated unless the work is carried out more than three months later than agreed and for reasons for which Dansk Auto Logik is not responsible. If Dansk Auto Logik’s hourly rate and/or material costs have increased by more than 5%, Dansk Auto Logik reserves the right to recalculate the price in relation to documented index figures from the Confederation of Danish Industry (Dansk Industri). If the change in price amounts to a change of more than 15%, both parties have the right to terminate the relevant part of the agreement.
If the customer does not collect the products within one week of the agreed collection, or if the customer refuses to accept the products/services performed, it is considered a violation of the agreement. Dansk Auto Logik then reserves the right to invoice the customer the full amount two weeks after the agreed pick-up time.
Immediately after delivery/collection of products/services performed, the customer must inspect these for loss, errors or damage together with Dansk Auto Logik. Any claims must be submitted in writing to Dansk Auto Logik on the day of receipt of the products/services. Dansk Auto Logik must be notified immediately and no later than three business days after collection or delivery of any hidden loss, defects or damage to products / performed services. If this deadline is not met, the products/services will be considered approved and without any loss, defects or damage, and any expenses and loss will be held at the customer’s own expence.
The abovementioned terms are also applicable for the customer when the products/services are delivered to a third party appointed by the customer.
All dates or delivery times for performance of a service by Dansk Auto Logik are only indicative.

If additional coverage is required, the customer must take out an additional insurance.
