All orders are subject to acceptance by Company. Company reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order, without cause, at any time. Global Auto Transportation is a registered, licensed, and bonded broker.
The Terms and Conditions, which are subject to change at any time, with or without notice, and the Terms and Conditions shall be collectively known as the “Transportation Agreement” or “Agreement”.
The Shipper acknowledges and agrees that Global Auto Transportation is hereby authorized to arrange shipment from the point of origin to the point of destination as specified in the Carrier Order Form.
Global Auto Transportation is a registered and licensed transporter (MC#658640).
All transportation services are Door-to-Door unless otherwise specified in the Carrier Order Form. If there is any hardship in accessing the pick-up or delivery location because of low-hanging trees, narrow streets, weight restrictions, etc., specific arrangements will be made for you to meet at a nearby safe and legal location with ample loading space (gas station, grocery store, etc.).
The Shipper is the one responsible for preparing the vehicle(s) for transport. All loose parts, fragile or protruding accessories, low-hanging spoilers, fog lights, etc., must be removed and/or properly secured. If any part falls off in transit, that part is the Shipper’s responsibility. This includes damages done by said part to any and all vehicles involved.
There will be a pick-up and delivery inspection done by both the car carrier and the responsible shipper. Damage must be noted on the Bill of Lading and signed by both the carrier and the responsible shipper. This must be done regardless of weather, time of day, or dirt on vehicle. Signing the Bill of Lading without a notation of damage verifies that the vehicle has been received in good condition and that the car carrier is relieved of any further responsibility. Vehicle(s) MUST be checked thoroughly.
By signing the Bill of Lading, the shipper assigns all responsibility to the assigned carrier, who is required by law to carry a minimum of $250,000 cargo and $1,000,000 in liability insurance.
All claims must be noted and signed for at the time of delivery and submitted in writing to the assigned carrier within the terms of that carrier’s Bill of Lading. Global Auto Transportation will share the carrier’s insurance policy information upon request but is not the entity responsible for any damages. The assigned carrier is solely responsible for the condition of your vehicle while it is in his possession.
Global Auto Transportation or its agents are not responsible for personal goods placed in the vehicle, or any damage they may cause. Shipper acknowledges and agrees that Global Auto Transportation does not guarantee pick-up or delivery on specified dates of shipments. Global Auto Transportation will make good faith attempt to move the vehicle as promptly as possible and in accordance with shipper’s instructions. All pick-up or delivery dates are estimated.
Global Auto Transportation or it agents will not be responsible for “Acts of God” (fire, flood, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc) Each claim is different and should be taken up with the carrier’s insurance.
For all orders placed through Global Auto Transportation, a minimum of a $100.00 deposit is required depending on the size and condition of the vehicle.
The deposit placed through Global Auto Transportation is refundable to shipper in the event the shipper cancels the order and at the time of cancellation no carrier had been assigned to that order.
All remaining payments are due to the transporting driver at the time of delivery or pick-up.
Global Auto Transportation is not responsible for any rental fees or other similar expenses.
Global Auto Transportation has a NO FEE CANCELLATION policy for shipments cancelled within 24 hours of scheduled pick-up time.
