We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace any part of these Terms. It is your responsibility to check these Terms periodically for changes. Your continued use of or access to the Website following the posting of any changes to these Terms constitutes acceptance of those changes. These Terms control the relationship between Peddle and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights. Peddle also reserves the right to suspend and/or deny access to the Website or any Services for scheduled or unscheduled maintenance, upgrades, improvements, corrections or otherwise.
By accepting an offer you agree to become legally bound by these Terms without any modification or reservation whatsoever. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of these Terms, then please do not access the Website or use any Services.
This Website is offered and available to users who are eighteen (18) years of age or older and reside in the United States or any of its territories or possessions only. By using this Website, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with Peddle and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Website. If you are eighteen (18) years of age, but reside in a jurisdiction outside the United States and its territories and possessions, you acknowledge and agree that you use the Website at your own risk, and that you agree to be bound by these Terms, regardless of any conflicting provisions applicable in your country of residence.
The Website is not intended for users under the age of thirteen (13), and we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of thirteen (13). Such users are expressly prohibited from registering for the Service or submitting their personally identifiable information to us, and from using portions of the Website for which registration is required.
Peddle does not always directly buy or sell cars or provide salvage and towing services or negotiate the purchase or sale of vehicles. In certain instances, the Website serves as a digital venue and intermediary where Sellers and Buyers meet and enter into agreements. In such situations, Peddle is not involved in the actual transaction between Sellers and Buyers (as defined below) and simply assists in the logistical and payment processes of the transactions when applicable. As a result, Peddle has no control over the quality, safety, or legal aspects of any sale that may be initiated through use of the Website or Services. Peddle has a dealer's license that enables it to buy cars. In the instances where Peddle buys cars from a Seller, Peddle steps into the role of a Buyer and all terms and conditions applicable to a Buyer are applicable to Peddle.
The Services provided are in no way a substitute for your own due diligence, and Peddle does not guarantee the accuracy or correctness of any information provided. You acknowledge that you may not accept an Offer (as defined below) on any vehicle that could cause us to violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance, or regulation or that violates our Prohibited Items terms.
While Peddle uses techniques such as insurance, EID, and credit checks to confirm the verification and qualification of Buyers and Carriers, it does not assume any obligation to do so and it does not guarantee the safety of any persons using the Website or Services or the accuracy of any information and is not responsible or liable for any activities you engage in with or any communications you have with Buyers or Carriers.
In order to access or use the Services or access certain functionality of the Website, you may be required to provide current and accurate identification, a username, password, email address and other information. You are solely responsible for any information you provide to us or other users in the registration, Offer, transportation, or payment process. You represent and warrant that your personal information is true, legal, accurate, non-fraudulent and solely yours. You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy and completeness of this information and for maintaining the confidentiality of your login information required to use the Services and Website. You may not impersonate, imitate or pretend to be somebody else when registering and/or setting up an account/profile on the Website. You acknowledge and agree that we may, and you specifically authorize us to, process all transactions, including any purchases, that are initiated by use of your registered account.
You will be fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account with Peddle, including activities of others to whom you have provided your username or password. Please notify Peddle immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security.
An "Offer" is an amount of money or a service put forward by the Buyer and when accepted, is defined as a transaction between a Buyer and a Seller. Offers are contingent upon the accuracy of the vehicle information as well as personal information submitted by the Seller.
"Sellers" are users of Peddle who submit information about their vehicle in order to receive Offers from Buyers. When a Seller receives and accepts an Offer from a Buyer, they are connected with a Carrier to arrange for their vehicle to be picked up.
"Buyers" are commercial users of Peddle who submit offer bids to buy the vehicles submitted by Sellers. The bid amount is based upon the vehicle's information that the Seller submits, such as the location, and condition of the vehicle. When a Buyer's bid is selected, an Offer is presented to the Seller.
Buyers are not permitted to circumvent or "cut out" Peddle or make offers directly to Sellers outside of the Services. If an Offer made outside of Peddle’s Service is accepted by a Seller, then Peddle deems those offers outside its purview and is unable to provide any support or assistance to the Seller or Buyer.
"Carriers" are commercial users of Peddle that physically transport the Seller's vehicle from its location to the Buyer.
Carriers do not provide emergency towing or recovery services through Peddle. In the case of pick ups, it is the Seller's responsibility to ensure that the vehicle is in a safe and accessible location to be removed upon the Carrier's arrival. If an Offer indicates that payment occurs at the moment the car is picked up, the Carrier also makes arrangements to pay the Seller.
Carriers are not permitted to circumvent or "cut out" Peddle or make offers directly to Sellers outside of the Services. If an Offer made outside of Peddle's Services is accepted by a Seller, then Peddle deems those offers outside its purview and is unable to provide any support or assistance to the Seller or Carrier.
Charities are commercial users of Peddle that monetize vehicle donations through the Service.
Publishers are commercial users of Peddle that monetize car-for-sale leads through the Service.
The Services and the Website may provide you with an opportunity to engage with third party services, information pertaining to third party services or links to third party services ("Third Party Services") offered or made available by third party organizations, companies or individuals as applicable, ("Third Party" or "Third Parties"). In such cases, Peddle acts as a conduit to allow you to identify, interact and engage with such Third Parties.
Your use of Third Party Services is subject to an independent agreement with the applicable Third Party providing such Third Party Services and is not governed by these Terms, unless explicitly stated as being applicable to such Third Party Services or Third Parties. Please read carefully all agreements, order forms and commitments you enter into with a Third Party for Third Party Services. You agree that all such agreements, order forms and commitments are your sole responsibility.
Please be aware that Third Parties provide their information to Peddle voluntarily. Peddle has no control over such information and resources provided and Peddle is not responsible for providing any guarantee, warranty or recommendation to such Third Party Services and/or Third Parties. You acknowledge that the Website may contain out of date or incorrect information about the Third Parties or the Third Party Services. It is your sole responsibility to obtain updated, complete and accurate information, including information about service levels, final pricing and quotes, about the Third Parties and the Third Party Services before you engage any such Third Parties or enter into any contract with them. Peddle is not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any content, information, events, goods or services available by or through such Third Parties.
A Carrier cannot pick up any hazardous or dangerous materials along with or inside of any vehicle. Hazardous or dangerous items are those that may pose a danger to the health, safety, or property of any person during transport (such as explosives, radioactive materials, flammable gases and solids, and toxic substances). Items that Peddle cannot service include parts, scrap metal, and liquids. PEDDLE ONLY PROVIDES SERVICES RELATING TO PASSENGER VEHICLES. This does not include motorcycles, heavy equipment, trailers, motorhomes, RVs, or boats.
By using our Service, you agree that you are using our Services in good faith, and that you mean to use them only for their intended purposes. You also warrant that you are legally able to sell the car on which you accept an Offer. You agree that it is your sole obligation to comply with all laws, rules, statutes, and regulations that may apply including any and all local, state, and federal licensing requirements.
In most cases, the Carrier is able to make payment to the Seller at the time of pick up. If paid by mailed check, ACH, wire transfer or any such payment method, the amount due to the Seller will be processed as soon the vehicle is confirmed to be picked up and the condition and documentation have been verified.
The following conditions will be verified at the time the vehicle is picked up:
