The Services

 

General Overview

Through the Services, we provide a platform that allows customers to obtain short-term vehicle management, to schedule Auto Care Services and communicate with Agents.

Auto Care Services include (1) the ability to arrange a pickup of your vehicle by an Agent at a location designated by you (“Pick Up”), for transportation to and service at a Carrectly - designated third party auto care (“Auto Care Facility”, “Trusted Service Center”, “Dealer”), (2) the ability to select services you wish to have performed by the Auto Care Facility,  and (3) the ability to have your vehicle retrieved by an Agent (including key location if necessary) and returned to the original location (“Drop Off”). Please note that the Auto Care Facility where your vehicle will be stored and serviced (“Auto Care Facility”) will be provided by a third party, and by authorizing Pick Up of your vehicle by Carrectly, you authorize us to perform the requested services as well as store your vehicle at the Auto Care Facility (subject to the policies of such Auto Care Facility) until the Auto Care Services are complete. As a User, you authorize Carrectly Service to operate your vehicle and make decisions on your behalf for the purposes of managing vehicle pickup and drop-off logistics, repair, service, transportation, as designated by you.

 

Making a reservation

All in advance or on-demand services require a minimum of 1 hour notice. You may request a Pick Up by providing the necessary descriptive information for the desired Auto Care Services or selecting one of the Fixed Price options, including (1) the desired Auto Care Services, (2) the Pick Up location and (3) the desired Pick-Up time. You acknowledge that exact pricing for many Auto Care Services cannot be provided in advance, and will depend on various factors including your vehicle and the nature of the Auto Care Services to be provided. Through the Services, upon submitting a Service Description and requesting such Auto Care Services to be scheduled, an Agent will be contacting you to provide Pickup and Drop Off related to your Auto Care Services.

 

Modifications to Service

Carrectly reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Carrectly will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

 

Cancellation

You will have the ability to cancel Auto Care Services for a reasonable period of time before the scheduled Drop Off or Pick Up time. Trip cancellations must take place no less than one hour prior to the reservation pick-up time or before an Agent is dispatched to the pickup location. Failure to cancel the service during the Cancellation Period may result in a $20 cancellation charge, upon Carrectly’s discretion.

 

No Show Policy

Carrectly concierge will wait up to 30 minutes after your scheduled pick-up time to make contact with you.  If you are bringing the vehicle to the designated location, it is your responsibility to notify us of any material delay. If you have not made contact with your driver or Carrectly within 30 minutes of the scheduled pickup time, we will consider your reservation a "no show" and you may incur a $40 fee. Keep in mind, this fee is to cover the cost of vetting and selecting a service center for the time slot picked by you, scheduling auto service appointment, dispatching a driver to your location, and concierge’s pay while waiting.

 

Limitations  

Prior to Pick Up the vehicle must be parked at the location designated in your Service Description at the designated time. Drop Off will be assumed to take place at the same location where Pick Up occurred, unless instructed my you to drop off a car at a different location within the coverage area of our services. You are solely responsible for leaving your vehicle in a safe and legal location, and agree to hold Carrectly harmless from any damages resulting from your failure to do so.

 

Changes in Scheduling and Delays

We will work to return your vehicle to you in a timely manner, based on your designated vehicle return time and completion of services. Please note, the timeliness of vehicle returns also depend on the completion of repairs and other maintenance services by third party service providers or dealers, and Carrectly cannot be liable for any delays caused by service providers.  

 

Compliance with Local Laws

You agree to comply with all state and local laws and regulations while using the Services, including, but not limited to, all driving, traffic and pedestrian related laws and regulations.

 

Availability

Carrectly operates on a space available, concierges available, first come first served basis. From time to time we experience high reservation volumes and concierge availability may be limited. Examples include holidays, large local events such as stadium events and weekend, rush hour, etc. Carrectly cannot be liable if the services cannot be performed or is not available at the time chosen on a reservation. Keep in mind, the earlier you book your reservation, the easier it is to plan logistics, schedule the service, and dispatch a concierge to you.

 

Fare

Round Trips: when your vehicle is picked up from you and delivered back to you. The amount of time it takes for the service, starting from the scheduled pick-up time and ending when the vehicle is dropped off multiplied by our hourly rate ($25 / hr) is the cost of our services. This does not include the actual price the service center charges for the cost of maintenance or repair.

One Way: When your vehicle is picked up from you and delivered to another location, per your or service center’s direction. The service is on per mile basis, where 5 miles = $30, or $6 per mile, after $30 minimum. This does not include the actual price the service center charges for the cost of maintenance or repair.

Fixed Price: These prices do not fluctuate and are listed on our website.

 

Payment

Customers agree to pay, either in cash or authorize Carrectly’s to charge the card you provide to us. You will have an option to pay an invoice online or through Square chip during the vehicle drop-off. Members will be charged a single fee that includes both the Auto Care Services as well as any fees associated with Drop Off and Pick Up (“Service Fee”). A tip or gratuity may be added at the customer’s discretion after Drop Off has been completed.

When scheduling Auto Care Services, you may be quoted an estimate of the applicable Service Fee or repair. Please note, however, that your actual Service Fee for the Auto Care Services may vary from these estimates based on the actual services performed. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain your consent via text or in-app message prior to authorizing additional services on your vehicle.

We may suspend or terminate your access to the Services if Service Fees are 30 days past due. All fees and payments are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms. Carrectly has no obligation to provide refunds or credits relating to any Auto Care Services, but may do so  Carrectly’s sole discretion.

Warranty, Liability and Disputes

 

Warranty Disclaimers

Carrectly conducts background checks including criminal and Driving Record checks (Abstracts) along with a review of other relevant background information on its agents and concierges. Only agents and auto care facilities who successfully complete Carrectly’s screening process, as determined in Carrectly’s discretion, will provide auto care services. However, Carrectly makes no warranty in connection with and/or arising from the provision of auto care services, or any acts, action, behavior, conduct, and/or negligence on the part of the agent. Furthermore, Carrectly makes no warranty regarding the auto care facility or dealership in which member’s vehicle will be serviced or stored between drop off and pick up.

The services and content are provided “as is” without warranty of any kind. We make all reasonable efforts to provide the best possible service, however we make no warranty that the services will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. We make no warranty regarding the quality, accuracy, timeliness, truthfulness, completeness or reliability of any content.

 

Assumption of Risk and Indemnity

The auto care facilities used by Carrectly are provided by third party auto care facility providers, and by utilizing auto care services, you authorize Carrectly to have your vehicle serviced and stored at any one of such auto care facilities, subject to the policies of such facility then in effect. You knowingly and freely assume all risk when using the services, including the auto care services.

You, on behalf of yourself, your personal representatives and your heirs, hereby voluntarily agree to release and hold harmless Carrectly and its officers, directors, affiliates, employees, consultants, agents, successors and assigns, from and against any claims, disputes, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, and costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees arising out of or in any way connected with your (1) access to or use of the services or content (2) use of auto care services including, without limitation, for bodily injury, wrongful death, emotional distress, or other damages or harm, whether to you or to third parties, which may result from the provision of auto care services, or (3) violation of these terms, including, without limitation, for bodily injury, wrongful death, emotional distress, loss of services or other damages or harm, whether to you or to third parties, which may result from your use of the services.

 

Limitation of Liability

Neither Carrectly nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the services or content will be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of use, loss of data or goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute services arising out of or in connection with these terms or from: (1) the use of or inability to use the services or content, (2) whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), (3) product liability or any other legal theory, and (4) whether or not Carrectly has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the service or with these terms of service, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue use of the service.

 

Disputes

Because the auto care Services involve the utilization of third party Dealers, Washes, and other auto care Facilities, in the event that you have a dispute with a auto care Facility, Carrectly may, in its sole discretion, facilitate communication between you and the auto care Facility in connection with such dispute. If such a dispute is unable to be resolved between you and the auto care Facility, Carrectly may, in its sole discretion, and where feasible, intervene in such dispute and take any actions we deem appropriate.
