By accepting a transportation bid from AcmeLogistics you are agreeing to the following:
This agreement is between you the "Shipper", (hereinafter referred to as “Customer”), and AcmeLogistics (“Carrier" or "TSP" (transportation service provider)).
Agreement is activated by the acceptance of the carrier’s bid by the customer.
The Customer shall, in their absence, designate a person to act as their agent at the point of pick up and/or delivery, if for any reason they are unavailable.
AcmeLogistics is authorized to operate and transport Customer’s property/cargo between its pick up location and the destination set forth on the shipping order-bill of lading.
Carrier’s main responsibility is to transport customer’s property/cargo. Loading and unloading is the customer’s responsibility with the supervision of carrier/driver.
AcmeLogistics is not responsible for any type of injury incurred by others while carrying, lifting, pushing, or other means of moving cargo or for any injury incurred while in, on, or around carrier’s trailer, vehicle, or other conveyance item.
Carrier will pick up and deliver Shipper’s cargo as close to the door as safely as possible. If carrier cannot legally or safely arrive to designated pickup or delivery location a mutually agreeable place to load or unload may be necessary. Reasons could be but not limited to low hanging trees, low hanging wires, narrow streets, truck weight or commercial limitations and residential area restrictions.
AcmeLogistics shall provide Customer with an estimated pick up and estimated delivery date. However, delays may occur prior to, and/or during transport due to weather, road conditions, mechanical problems, etc. There are absolutely no guarantees regarding pick-up or delivery times and dates. AcmeLogistics shall not be held responsible for loss or damages occasioned by delays of any kind or for any reason, car rental fees or any accommodation fees. AcmeLogistics shall not be held liable for failure of mechanical or operating parts of your property/cargo.
It is the Customer’s responsibility to prepare property/cargo for transport. All loose parts, fragile accessories, low hanging items, etc. must be removed or secured. Vehicles/cargo must be tendered to carrier in good running condition or notified that vehicle will not run, but will steer, roll, and brake (unless otherwise noted). Cargo should not contain more than a 25% (1/4) tank of fuel and RV's and Travel trailers shall have all storage tanks (Black-Grey-Potable Water) emptied prior to transportation. Any part of the vehicle/cargo that falls off during transport is the Customer’s responsibility including damages caused by said part to any vehicles(s) and/or person involved.
Customer must disarm any alarm system installed in or on the vehicle/cargo or provide proper instructions for this matter. In the event said alarm sounds and there are no keys or instructions to turn it off, carrier may silence alarm by any means.
Luggage and/or personal property must be confined in one suitcase OR bag in trunk only, with no heavy articles, and not to exceed 100 lbs. Luggage and/or personal property must be disclosed to carrier prior to pick up. Sail Me Properties, LLC is not liable for personal items left in vehicle/cargo, or for damage caused to vehicle/cargo from excessive or improper loading of personal items.

Customer agrees that Sail Me Properties, LLC may confiscate or dispose of said items with no remuneration. Sail Me Properties, LLC will not be held responsible for delivery of personal property. If Customer wishes to put items in the vehicle/cargo he does so at his own risk.
OVER SIZE / INOPERABLE
If the vehicle/cargo is inoperable or oversize (dual or oversize wheels, extra-large tires, racks, lifted, limo, etc.) which is different than size or condition indicated prior to the acceptance of bid, Customer must inquire as to extra charges. If AcmeLogistics is not advised of inoperable or over-sized/modified vehicles/cargo prior to pick-up, all extra charges must be paid by Customer in cash or money order upon delivery to the carrier/driver.
If you are shipping an inoperable vehicle/cargo, you may be required to help load and unload said vehicle at the discretion of the driver. Should vehicle/cargo(s) become inoperable during transport, an additional charge may be due at time of delivery in addition to any other moneys owed and is the total discretion of driver to charge. It is shipper’s responsibility to make sure vehicle/cargo is in proper working order. Problems, such as but not limited to, a dead battery, bad alternator, loose cables, etc. that makes the vehicle inoperable during transport will increase the transport price as stated in the additional charges.
If vehicle/cargo is oversize and will not fit into/onto the conveyance unit, Customer will be responsible for any additional costs incurred to legally and safely transport vehicle/cargo by Carrier. If vehicle/cargo is oversize and exceeds allotted space and creates a lack of space for other vehicle/cargo, Customer will be responsible for any additional costs incurred to legally and safely transport other vehicle/cargo by Carrier. If vehicle/cargo is not going to be conveyed a cancellation has occurred. Refer to CANCELLATIONS paragraph.
Once the carrier/driver has been assigned to pick up and transport Customer’s property/cargo, AcmeLogistics will notify the Customer via email or telephone (the email address or telephone number provided in your UShip shipping order). If the Customer cancels the order, prior to the assignment of a Carrier, the deposit paid will be refunded (UShip fee's may still apply.) However, if the Customer decides to cancel his order after a truck/driver has been dispatched the deposit will NOT be refunded.
The Customer agrees that AcmeLogistics has the right to reject any order for any reason at any time.
At the time of pick up, Customer and Carrier/driver will carefully inspect the vehicle/cargo for pre-existing damage (exterior only) by making it noted on the Bill of Lading and taking pictures. The Carrier/driver and Customer will both acknowledge the condition of the vehicle and Customer will sign the bill of lading.

All claims must be submitted in writing within 24 hours of delivery.
