RC TRANSPORT's Terms and Conditions
By accepting this bid you are agreeing to this Service Provider's Terms and Conditions.
The following terms and conditions are common sense, damages that are my fault, I am responsible for, damages as a result of mechanical or condition failure of the cargo are the responsibility of the shipper.
1. Insurance: I carry $1million liability and $100,000 cargo insurance. I always include full-value protection for your property at no extra charge.
1a. The liability, just as in regular auto insurance, protects against damage to others, both persons and property. Liability does not protect your cargo.
1b. The cargo portion of insurance covers any damages to your property due to my negligence or due to an accident at the fault of others where there limits do not fully reimburse. If your property is valued above $100k, I can raise my limit, we just need to have that conversation before any bid is accepted.
1c. I am not responsible for damages to the cargo which are a result of the cargo itself, for example, personally packed items, boxes, and RVs; or damages as a result of mechanical breakdown of the towed item (see trailers below).
2. Trailers listed for towaway service must be in a roadworthy condition. That is to say trailer lights should function properly, tires must have decent tread and should not have dry rot, and bearings/hubs should have been greased on a regular basis. If you are unsure or believe the trailer may not be up to par, it doesn't mean and can't be towed, we just need to have the conversation so we can both properly plan.
2a. Tires: Tires are always the biggest issue with trailers. Unfortunately it is not uncommon for trailer tires to blow when they are not actively taken care of; just a few year old tires with few miles on a trailer that hasn't moved in a couple of years could be bad. I will replace tires as necessary for my customers but addressing this possible issue before shipping is best. A few options: prior to shipping, you replace all tires or at least have them inspected as serviceable; have a serviceable spare with the trailer; coordinate with me to take your trailer to a tire shop to have tires replaced if you are not able; and notify me of the tire and wheel size to see if I have a spare that will fit if necessary. For tire failures along route, I have had the tires replaced by a tire shop (mounted on your wheel), or have fitted the trailer with replacement wheel/tire combos that can be purchased at various trailer supply businesses. Regardless of any tire related issue, I am not responsible for damages that are caused by the tire breakdown. As well, the cost of repair is the responsibility of the shipper; I've had customers pay over the phone to the tire shop and I've had customers reimburse me directly, so we'll figure it out at the time as to the best solution for the situation.
2b. Lights: For emergencies I carry a set of portable trailer lights that can be strapped on if necessary, however any trailer electrical,issues should be addressed prior to transport. If you know of an electrical issue, please discuss this with me prior to shipping.
2c. Bearings/Hubs: Bearings should be greased regularly. I carry a grease gun and will grease hubs with a grease fitting easily. If bearings need repacked, that is a job in of itself, but can be done if coordinated before hand. If hubs are bad, please have them replaced prior to shipment, a hub failure can be a disaster, costly, and time consuming. In general, unless you have a salt water boat trailer which has been neglected, a shot of grease will be sufficient for most hubs.
3. Tarps and covers and other fabric attachments are always vulnerable during transport.
3a. For boat transport, your best protection is shrink wrap. It's not 100% guaranteed, but if you feel you want to protect a boat interior during transport, then shrink wrap is my recommendation.
3b. Some wish to use a factory or aftermarket boat cover for transport, with rare exception these covers are designed for storage and not transport. Any cover that is not brand new has some UV damage which weakens it, and all covers have slack in them even when fully and properly secured; this slack will buffet with the wind and may weaken the seams to where they rip, possibly even having the cover cause damage by smacking up and down on the boat. I recommend against covers for transport, but if you insist I will transport with your cover; if the cover reaches a point as to where I believe it is endangering the boat or may fly off in the middle of the highway and endanger anyone else, I will remove it. In any case I will keep you informed so you are aware of the status.
3c. Other fabric items, biminis, canvas tops, RV canopies can not be guaranteed as to no damage during transport. The older these items are the more vulnerable they are, even when packed properly. Any damage to these items would be just as if you were pulling it somewhere, long distance, constant 60+ mph, time and UV damage, at some point, it's time for a replacement. I will stow any naturally stowable fabric items. As always, any questions or special requirements, we just need to discuss it before shipping.
4. I will take care of your property as if it were my own and I will get it to where it needs to be and on time. If there is any damage due to my negligence, I will accept responsibility and I will make it right. Damages and costs due to mechanical breakdown of the towed cargo are the responsibility of the shipper.
5. Please ask if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks, Rob
