Drive Home is a unique service only available from Car Back in the Dorset area. The service is designed to enable you to get you and your car home safely, should you be unable to drive yourself. If you have consumed too much alcohol to drive yourself home, give us a call, tell us where and when you would like to be collected from. We will then send one of our cars to you, with two drivers in it. One drvier will get into your vehicle with you and your passengers and drive you homw safely, whilst the other driver will follow behind and pick the driver up once you have finished with him.
The cost of using the Drive Home service is based on how many miles you travel, very similar to how you are charged when using a taxi. There is a pickup charge of £5 at the start of the journey and then you are charged £4.00 for each mile you travel up to 10 miles, after 10 miles the rate drops to £2.00 per mile. There is a minimum charge of £17.00, which covers the first 3 miles. Pickups after midnight incur a charge of an extra £6.00.
All bookings taken are subject to availability. Once a booking has been made, you are entering into a verbal contract with Car Back Limited. Failure to complete this contract by not being ready to leave at your agreed booking time will incur a waiting charge of £3 per 5 minutes. Failing to appear at all, will incur a fee charge of at least £10.
Car Back Limited will not be held responsible for any delays in our drivers arriving at the agreed booking time due to unforseen circumstances or a previous journey taking longer than expected.
It is the responsibilty of the customer to make sure their vehicle is in a fit condition to be on a public highway, and that there is enough fuel in the vehicle to complete the journey.
Car Back Limited and its drivers reserve the right to refuse, cancel or terminate any journey without giving any reason as to why. Any customer making threats, physical or verbal will be reported to the Police.
