PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE CONTINUING TO CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT. BY CLICKING ON THE “ACCEPT” BUTTON, YOU ARE AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY, AND ARE BECOMING A PARTY TO, THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT CLICK ON THE “ACCEPT” BUTTON AND DISCONTINUE YOUR REGISTRATION TO THE RUNBUGGY SERVICE.
ONLY PERSONS OF LEGAL AGE CAN ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT AND CREATE AND/ OR AUTHORIZE AN ACCOUNT TO USE THE RUNBUGGY SERVICE.
By using the RunBuggy Service to order or deliver Transport Services you assume all obligations related thereto, including compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws, statutes, rules, ordinances, and regulations (“Applicable Laws”). THE PROVISION OF TRANSPORT SERVICES IS SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE TRANSPORTER WITHOUT ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY TO RUNBUGGY.
The RunBuggy Service.
The RunBuggy Service provides a marketplace where businesses seeking vehicles transported to or from other businesses, including car dealerships and vehicle auctions (each, a “Dealer”) can be connected with vehicle carriers who provide transportation services (“Transporters”). Individual authorized representatives of Transporters and Dealers who register and create an account on the RunBuggy Service and who register as “peer users” on the RunBuggy website are collectively referred to herein as “Users”, “you”, “your” and the like. For purposes of this Agreement, the transportation services provided by Transporters to Dealers that are matched through the RunBuggy Service shall be referred to collectively as the “Transport Services”. Any decision by a User to offer or accept Transport Services is a decision made in such User’s sole discretion. Each Transport Service provided by a Transporter shall constitute a separate agreement between such persons.
RunBuggy is not a party to any agreement for Transport Services or other agreement made between Users in connection with the RunBuggy Service. As a result, RunBuggy has no control over the quality, safety, or legal aspects of the Transport Services or the transactions between Users regardless of use of the RunBuggy Service. RunBuggy does not prequalify or validate the claims of Transporters including with respect to their licensure, insurance and registration, nor does RunBuggy prequalify or validate the claims of brokers including those related to compliance with the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). RunBuggy does not endorse, recommend or refer any specific Transporter or shipper, nor does RunBuggy have any control or influence over actions or decisions made by users of the service. All users of the RunBuggy platform make their own decisions and You acknowledge and agree that we are not in any way arranging transportation services on your behalf. Because we are not involved in the actual transaction between shippers and Transporters, we have no control over the accuracy of listings, the ability of Transporters to transport items, or the ability of shippers to send items. We cannot ensure the shipper or Transporter will actually complete a shipment. We cannot and do not guarantee the ability of Users to complete or fulfill any services booked through the RunBuggy platform. Furthermore, due to the difficulty of individual authentication, especially on the Internet, we cannot and do not guarantee the verification of any User’s identity. Any identity verification methods we employ are strictly for the benefit of RunBuggy and should not be relied upon by our Users. You acknowledge and agree that any and all communications, correspondence, verbal or written or by electronic means, or any warranties or representations made with regard to the arrangement of transportation services are not provided by us and are specifically and solely between You and the other User.
For the convenience of the parties to a shipment, RunBuggy generates an electronic and printable bill of lading utilizing the booking information provided by both parties for your use in tendering the shipment. The bill of lading issued in connection with each shipment is non-negotiable and shall be deemed, conclusively, to have been prepared by the Dealer. The parties agree that RunBuggy does not issue the bill of lading and that RunBuggy is not a party to the bill of lading (regardless of the presence of the RunBuggy name or RunBuggy Trademarks on such bill of lading). If the Dealer makes changes to a shipment after booking, then the Dealer is required to either make changes to the bill of lading or cancel the shipment and rebook with current information. Transporters shall have no obligation to honor rate quotes in any of the following instances: any alteration of the bill of lading, or tendering of shipments to any carrier other than the selected Transporter, or the use of a bill of lading not generated via the RunBuggy Service.
Dealers. You are responsible for reading all terms, conditions, and tariffs published by Transporters when booking shipments on RunBuggy. You are agreeing to the Transporter’s terms, conditions, and tariffs; and entering into a legally binding agreement with the Transporter, unless the transaction is prohibited by law or by this Agreement. You acknowledge that, unless otherwise noted by the Transporter, pick-up dates, delivery dates, and transit times are estimates only and are not guaranteed. A Transporter reserves the right to inspect your shipment before accepting it, and to refuse to transport any item prohibited by this Agreement or by law. IMPORTANT: RunBuggy does not screen or qualify Transporters for compliance with federal, state or local statutes, laws, rules, ordinances and regulations, including but not limited to broker compliance with the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). It is recommended that You confirm such compliance directly with the Transporter before services are rendered by the Transporter.
Transporters. You must legally be able to transport the shipments You book through RunBuggy. You agree that it is your sole obligation to comply with all Applicable Laws that may apply including any and all local, state, and federal licensing requirements. Transporters agree that, through the various products and features on RunBuggy, they are solely responsible for all aspects of services, pricing, and terms they offer the Dealer. Rates, services, and terms are solely provided by the Transporters and not by RunBuggy. You understand and acknowledge that all shipment information is provided by other registered users and RunBuggy has no control over or responsibility for the accuracy of this information. You are responsible for reading all of the shipment details and by booking shipments on the RunBuggy Service, You are entering into a legally binding agreement to complete the services as requested by the Dealer.
FMCSA and State Laws.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (“FMCSA”), part of the U.S. Department of Transportation, requires that all Transporters handling interstate shipments register with it and provide certain information. You can determine the registration and safety statutes applicable to You at www.fmcsa.dot.gov and by consulting your legal counsel. Certain Transport Services may involve movements only within one state. A number of states have statutes and regulations pertaining to such intrastate transportation. We suggest You check with the applicable state’s Department of Transportation and your legal counsel to determine application of such state’s law and regulations to You and the provision of Transport Services by You.
Access and Use.
When using the RunBuggy Service on a mobile device and/or the RunBuggy mobile application, you shall: (i) observe all traffic laws and otherwise drive safely; (ii) use your good personal judgment while driving, (iii) not interact with the app, unless your vehicle is stationary and legally parked; (iv) not use the RunBuggy Service for any illegal, unauthorized, unintended, unsafe, hazardous, or unlawful purposes.
User Account, Password and Security.

Each User agrees to (a) immediately notify RunBuggy of any unauthorized use of such User’s username and password or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session when accessing the RunBuggy Service.

This indemnity shall be applicable without regard to the negligence of any party, including any indemnified person.
d. All disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the RunBuggy Service that are not resolved by mutual agreement shall be exclusively resolved by binding arbitration to be conducted before JAMS, or its successor.
e. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, arbitration will be held in Los Angeles, California before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, or if the parties cannot mutually agree, a single arbitrator appointed by JAMS, and will be conducted in accordance with the rules and regulations promulgated by JAMS. The arbitration must commence within forty-five (45) days of the date on which a written demand for arbitration is filed by either party. The arbitrator’s decision and award will be made and delivered within sixty (60) days of the conclusion of the arbitration and within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator will not have the power to award either party any damages in excess of the limitation on actual compensatory, direct damages set forth in above. The arbitrator may, in his or her discretion, assess costs and expenses (including the reasonable legal fees and expenses of the prevailing part) against any party to a proceeding, to the extent the same is permitted by law. Any party refusing to comply with an order of the arbitrators will be liable for costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by the other party in enforcing the award. Any arbitrator shall be a retired judge of any court in California and experienced in commercial transactions. Resolution of the claim or dispute shall be based solely upon the substantive law governing the claims and defenses pleaded, the arbitrator shall apply the laws of the State of California, and shall be required to follow such law. The arbitrator may not invoke any basis other than such controlling law. The award shall be in writing, signed by the arbitrator, and shall include a statement setting forth the reasons for the disposition of any claim. The award shall include findings of fact and conclusions of law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, any party may proceed in court without prior arbitration for the purpose of avoiding immediate and irreparable harm. The provisions of this arbitration section will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
f. You understand and agree that you and RunBuggy may each bring claims in arbitration against the other only in an individual capacity and not on a class, collective action, or representative basis (“Class Action Waiver”). You understand and agree that you and RunBuggy both are waiving the right to pursue or have a dispute resolved as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective or representative proceeding, except where such waiver is prohibited by applicable law. The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any claim or issue any relief on any basis other than an individual basis. The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any claim or issue any relief on a class, collective, or representative basis.
g. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the JAMS rules or otherwise, disputes regarding the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability or validity of the Class Action Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
h. In any case in which: (1) the dispute is filed as a class, collective, or representative action and (2) there is a final judicial determination that the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable as to any Claims, the class, collective, and/or representative action on such Claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the Class Action Waiver shall be enforced in arbitration on an individual basis as to all other Claims to the fullest extent possible.
You agree that RunBuggy, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the RunBuggy Service and remove and discard any content within the RunBuggy Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if RunBuggy believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement.
