Welcome to Haultail®! Please note that drivers and customers are bound by different agreements.
Drivers will need to agree to both agreement to work with Haultail®.
1. Acceptance of Terms
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS PROVISIONS THAT GOVERN HOW CLAIMS YOU AND PUT CAN BE BROUGHT (SEE SECTION 18 BELOW). THESE PROVISIONS, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION, REQUIRE YOU TO SUBMIT CLAIMS AGAINST PUT TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A MEMBER OF ANY CLASS, GROUP OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING.
By entering into this Agreement, you expressly acknowledge that you understand this Agreement (including the dispute resolution and arbitration provisions in Section 18) and accept all of the Terms. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms and condition of this Agreement you may not use or access Haultail®.
Haultail® provides a marketplace where persons or companies ("Customer" or "Customers") who seek to dispose of certain materials, including construction/domolition debris (the "Demo Collection") and/or desire pickup and delivery services (the "Delivery") (Demo Collection and Delivery are sometimes collectively the "Services") can be matched with persons who have made their vehicles available to provide such services to the Customers ("Drivers") (Customers and Drivers are sometimes referred to herein as "Users").
Construction/Demolition Debris Collection ("Demo Collection") . If a Customer chooses Demo Collection, they will be prompted to first identify the type and amount of materials to be picked up (i.e. number of Demobags™ or other construction clean up bags, boxes or other materials), and then be prompted to take photographs of the items. Upon arrival the Driver will confirm the amount of material to be picked up matched the order. Drivers shall have the right to refuse Services for any materials not expressly documented by Customer during the ordering process. Users are expressly prohibited from seeking to use Haultail® for any items other than those identified. Please note that Haultail® may not be used to dispose or certain materials, including but not limited to household trash or recyclables which would otherwise be disposed of by municipal waste/recycling companies. For a description of prohibited uses, please see Section 7, below.
Delivery . If a Customer chooses Delivery, Haultail® will request that the Customer identify the items to be picked up and delivered, as well as the address for pick-up and delivery. Drivers are prohibited from picking up or delivering items other than to/from the addresses submitted to Haultail® by the Customer. Delivery is curbside only. Drivers have the right to refuse Services if the items do not match those submitted by the Customer to Haultail®.
Order Confirmation A Customer may request Services by first selecting the type of service the Customer requires (i.e. Demo Collection or Delivery), the vehicle (i.e., truck, van) that the Customer requires and the address for pickup and/or delivery. Haultail® will calculate the Service Charges and the Customer will be prompted to confirm the order (the "Order"). Upon confirmation, PUT will match the Customer with an available Driver. Once matched, the Customer and Driver may only communicate regarding the Services through Haultail®. PUT uses a third-party provider to facilitate text, voice and other communications between Customer and Driver (to mask a party's phone number and promote privacy). The third party's terms of service will apply to the services the third party performs.
For purposes of this Agreement, any decision by a Customer to accept Services from any Driver is made at the Customer's sole and absolute discretion. Each Service provided by a Driver to a Customer shall constitute a separate agreement between such person(s) or entity(ies). No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, PUT, any Driver or other third party as a result of this Agreement or use of the Service.
PUT AND ITS AFFILIATES DO NOT PROVIDE MOVING SERVICES OR FUNCTION AS A MOVING CARRIER OR A DRIVER. PUT OFFERS INFORMATION AND A METHOD TO OBTAIN AND SCHEDULE DRIVING SERVICES WITH INDEPENDENT THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS. YOU AGREE THAT PUT HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY TO YOU RELATED TO ANY MOVING, LOGISTICS, OR TRANSACTIONS PROVIDED TO YOU BY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICES. PUT DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE SUITABILITY, SAFETY OR ABILITY OF THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS EXCEPT AS NOTED HEREIN. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE A DRIVER MEETS YOUR REQUIREMENTS. PUT WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND A THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER. BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU USE THE SERVICES AT YOUR OWN RISK.

PUT reserves the right to modify any information referenced by this Agreement from time to time, and such modifications shall become effective upon posting. Continued use of Haultail® after such changes are made or posted shall constitute your consent to such changes.

PUT may replace its third-party payment processing service at any time without notice to you. Service Charges shall only be made through Haultail®, including voluntary gratuities. Cash payments are strictly prohibited.
Refunds . All Service Charges are non-refundable unless otherwise noted during the ordering process. This no-refund policy shall apply at all times regardless of your decision to terminate usage of Haultail®, disruptions to Haultail®, or any other reason whatsoever, unless expressly noted otherwise herein.
Credits and Discounts. PUT may provide you with credits or discounts to be applied to your future use of Haultail®.

Customers will receive notice through Haultail's messaging system of the arrival of the Driver. Customers are given a five (5) minute grace period from the time of the Driver's arrival to the designated delivery address for the Customer to accept delivery. Wait times longer than five minutes will be subject to an additional fee.
Inability to Complete Service. In the event that by no fault of the Driver or PUT the Services cannot be completed, the Customer will be charged 100% of the estimated fee and all items scheduled for Delivery will be returned and/or items scheduled for Pickup will be left. Neither PUT nor the Driver shall be responsible for any damage to Customer's property as a result of the inability to complete Services under this section. In the event of the inability to complete Services due to mechanical breakdown or other issues with a Driver's vehicle, PUT will notify Customer of the issue and make every effort to find a replacement Driver to complete the Services at no additional cost to Customer.
Stranding and Abandonment. Use of Haultail® to strand or abandon items may result in a stranding and abandonment fee of up to $500.00, in addition to actual disposal charges.
Haultail® insures each Delivery up to $250.00.

Damage that occurs during transportation (from the time the goods are placed on the truck to the time they are removed) will be repaired or replaced up to the insured amount chosen by Customer. Customers will receive a receipt from our third-party insurance provider at the time of Order confirmation which will contain instructions on how to submit a claim in the event of damage. Failure to submit a claim in accordance with the instructions provided may result in the denial of a claim. Customer expressly waives any right to claim damages against Haultail® for failure to insure their goods up to full replacement value and under no circumstances may Customer seek to hold Haultail® liable for damage to their goods in excess of the chosen insurance amount.
Existing damage will be noted and photographed by Drivers prior to transport. Goods and other property that are damaged as a result of improper packaging for transport in a pickup truck (such as, but not limited to, televisions and other sensitive electronics) may not be covered. It is your responsibility to ensure that items are reasonably packaged and prepared for moving in the chosen vehicle type.
Each Driver is required to drive only those vehicles which he or she has registered with Haultail®. Drivers are not permitted to have any passengers in their vehicles while performing the Services. Customers are responsible for ensuring that the Driver's vehicle matches the vehicle on the Order confirmation and the Driver is as identified in the application.
