By using the Services maintained, promoted, and undertaken by MOVE IT, You expressly agree to hold harmless MOVE IT, its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees or any affiliate of MOVE IT for the condition of any items and/or belongings by which You engage MOVE IT’s Services. By signing this Agreement, You further expressly agree and acknowledge that any drivers and/or transporters of items and/or other belongings on behalf of MOVE IT are independent contractors, and thereby solely responsible for damages, if any, caused by the pick up, transportation, and/or delivery of any items and/or belongings.

In essence, You hereby agree and acknowledge that, in no event in which any item and/or belonging or collection of items and/ or belonging for which YOU engage MOVE IT’s Services which exceeds $500.00 in fair market value, will MOVE IT, its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees, in addition to any independent contractor of MOVE IT’s Services will be responsible for any amount exceeding $500.00.

You hereby agree and acknowledge that, in the event that, in the operation and conducting of its Services, that any item and/or belonging becomes damaged and/or destroyed, or any part thereof becomes damaged and/or destroyed, MOVE IT reserves the right to deem a damaged item repairable or replaceable in the event that MOVE IT agrees that such repair or replacement is economically feasible and can be done so without the destruction of the item and/or belonging. Upon the completion of the move job, it is the user’s responsibility to thoroughly examine the transported items and move settings for any damage. The moving contractors leaving the site without any immediate damage claim being filed (see 4. Disputes/Claims) confirms the satisfaction of services rendered and waives any further damage litigation. You further hereby agree and acknowledge MOVE IT’s rights to make a proper determination to either repair or replace any item and/or belonging, in addition to any portion of any item and/or belonging in the event MOVE IT accepts responsibility of the damage and/or destruction of any item, which is expressly limited by the terms and conditions listed herein.
4. Item Delivery/Transportation. Upon engaging MOVE IT’s Services, You must designate a point of contact (the “Point of Contact”) that is authorized to accept delivery of the item and/or belonging being transported by the driver. Before MOVE IT is obligated to deliver and/or transport any item, You agree to designate a Point of Contact by signing MOVE IT’s driver request form. Upon delivery of the item and/or belonging, the Point of Contact shall sign the MOVE IT driver request form, acknowledging successful delivery of the item and/or belonging. By naming a Point of Contact, You hereby expressly authorize such individual to accept the condition of the transported item as-is upon its delivery, thereby acknowledging the non-existence of damages thereto. Upon the Point of Contact’s signature of the driver request form, such signature confirms that the item has been successfully delivered to the agreed upon destination and that no damages of any kind have arisen as a result of MOVE IT’s delivery and/or transportation of such item. In addition, such signature waives any and all rights to You, as expressly limited herein, to submit a damage claim in an attempt to hold MOVE IT, its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees, in addition to its independently contracted drivers responsible for any damages occurring from the transportation and/or delivery of any item and/or belonging.

You further expressly agree to pay the entire cost of the move upon MOVE IT’s pick-up of the item and/or belonging. MOVE IT will not be responsible for any refund to You in the event successful delivery of the item cannot be made by fault of either You, the Point of Contact, or any third-party not affiliated with MOVE IT or its drivers.
6. Dispute/Claims. Any disputes related to the Services described herein against MOVE IT, or any independent contractor thereof shall be made prior to the moving contractors leaving the move site following the completion of the delivery and/or transportation of the item(s) and/or belonging(s) by emailing MOVE IT at email@example.com and providing your full name, address, telephone number, in addition to a detailed description of Your dispute and/or claim, including the time and place Your items and/or belongings were delivered. Once the moving contractors leave the move site without a damage claim being submitted, the user is waiving their ability to pursue any further litigation.
