Use of Site Policy Section: (Non-Membership – One Time Freight Shipment)
About All Shipments
Note: Quotes are based on zip codes, weight, dimensions, class and NMFC classification. Value coverage is based on NMFC standards and may differ from your requested value. Used items may only be covered for 10 cents/lb. We do have additional liability coverage available but must be quoted and booked at time of scheduling. We reserve the right to amend quotes made herein in the event of a mistake or incorrect information. All quotes are quoted as business to business shipments or curb to curb unless otherwise requested. There is a minimum fee of $50 for cancelling a booked shipment. On complex or time consuming shipments, it can be $100. Carriers charge extra for residences, schools, hotels, universities, churches, bases, construction sites, storage units and limited access places.
Shipper and/or Payer of this shipment agrees to instruct Consignee on proper procedures on receiving freight shipment. If you are receiving the shipment: NOTE: In signing the Delivery Receipt before examining shipment, Consignee is agreeing that there is no damages and/or shortages to the freight and in doing so may jeopardize being able to file a damage claim later. As per the National Motor Freight Traffic Association, if no damages and/or shortages exceptions are noted on the Delivery Receipt, the claim will be considered “Concealed” and a written notice must be sent to the motor carrier directly within 5 business days from the date of delivery. This notice is to advise the carrier that damages and/or shortages were found AFTER the delivery took place. This notice must be in writing via mail or email and must be sent by the customer. Carriers have a policy that they may only pay half the value of a claim when the Delivery Receipt has been signed without damages and/or shortages noted on it. So any damages and/or shortages must be noted on the “delivery receipt” before signing. If any box or crate looks damaged, consignee must note that “packaging looks damaged so possible damaged may have occurred”. If damage is obvious, note all damage before signing. If the item is totally destroyed, you can refuse the shipment and refuse to sign anything. If driver won’t wait for inspection, note “driver could not wait for inspection, possible damage”. Remember, if concealed damage is discovered, the carrier must be notified within 5 business days in writing. If damage is noted on delivery receipt, you have several months to file a claim. To clarify Notice: The written notice may simply be a brief statement to any contact with the motor carrier: For example: “A claim will be filed on PRO # (the carrier provided Pro# or tracking#), but please consider this email a written notice of concealed damages and/or shortage within 5 business days from date of delivery.”
Payless Freight dba Associated Shippers does not insure or indemnify Customer against losses, damages, delays or other liability resulting from or incurred in connection with Shipment. In the event of a claim, Customer shall look solely to the Carrier and/or Customer’s own insurance in the event of a claim for damage or loss. If Customer is not the consignee, it agrees to cause the consignee to inspect the shipment at the time of delivery, and to document any damage on the delivery receipt prior to signing. Because the transportation of Customer’s freight is performed exclusively by the Carrier and not by Payless Freight, the Customer agrees to hold Payless Freight harmless for services (i.e. transportation of freight) performed by the Carrier. Customer agrees to pay Payless Freight as per this Agreement regardless of any disputes that may or may not occur with the Carrier. Customer further understands and agrees that it will be subject to, and bound by, the Carrier’s specific limitations as to claims, losses and/or damages, and that it will not be able to recover any damages or losses in excess of such limitations.
