The following terms of service (the “Terms”) constitute a legally binding agreement between you (also referred to below as “User”) and The Great American Labor Company. (“GALC”). These Terms govern your access to and/or use of (i) GALC’s websites, including without limitation its website at https://greatamericanlabor.com/, (ii) GALC’s mobile applications (each, a “GALC App” and collectively, the “GALC Apps”), and (iii) GALC’s telephone ordering platform (the “Telephone Platform”) (collectively, the Website, GALC Apps, and the Telephone Platform are referred to herein as the “GALC Platforms”). These Terms also govern any services that you may receive through the GALC Platforms, including, but not limited to, any services that you may receive from GALC, its subsidiaries, or affiliates, or the Third Party Providers (defined below).
**Please read these Terms carefully before accessing or using any of the GALC Platforms, including, but not limited to, before placing any order with GALC for loading, unloading, or other help services, moving services, and/or any other services that may be offered through the GALC Platforms (collectively, the “Services”). ** By accessing or using the GALC Platforms, including, without limitation, by using the GALC App or placing an order for Services online or via telephone, you agree to be bound by these Terms, including, but not limited to, provisions that govern any claim you may have for property damages, provisions that limit GALC’s liability, and provisions that require individual arbitration of any potential legal dispute between you and GALC. If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not use the GALC Platforms or receive any Services.
GALC reserves the right to change these Terms at any time. However, if GALC makes changes to the Terms, GALC will notify you by revising the “Last Modified” date at the top of this document. In some cases, GALC may also provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to GALC’s homepage or sending you an email notification). GALC encourages you to review these Terms periodically to stay informed about GALC’s practices, and you should always review these Terms before placing any order for Services.
Unless GALCs notifies you otherwise, whenever GALC makes changes to these Terms, they will be effective when the revised Terms are posted online or otherwise provided for your review. If you continue to use any GALC Platform after the revised Terms have been posted or otherwise provided for your review, including, but not limited to, by placing an order for Services with GALC, you will be deemed to have accepted the changes to these Terms and will be bound by the revised Terms.
In the event that you have placed an order for Services prior to the effective date of a change to these Terms, your order will be bound by the Terms in effect on the date that you placed an order for Services.
You may be required to agree to additional, supplemental terms in certain markets or for certain Services requested by you. If supplemental terms apply in your market or are required by your request for Services, such supplemental terms will be disclosed to you in a separate disclosure or in connection with, but prior to, the performance of the applicable Services by Third Party Providers (as defined below). Supplemental terms are in addition to, and shall be deemed a part of, these Terms for the purposes of the applicable Services. In the event of a conflict between any supplemental terms and these Terms, the supplemental terms shall prevail but only with respect to the Services to which the supplemental terms apply.
GALC is a labor referral service that matches individuals who are seeking local, regional, and other moving services, or services related to moving, with independent third party service providers capable of providing loading and unloading or other help services; (each individual or company with whom GALC contracts and matches with you to provide the requested Services is referred to herein as a “Third Party Provider”). ** GALC is not a household goods mover or other transportation provider and does NOT provide moving services.** GALC is a referral and booking service that connects you, a “User” of the GALC Platforms, with Third Party Providers of the Services. As a referral and booking service, you acknowledge and understand that GALC is not subject to the same laws and regulations applicable to household goods motor carriers and that, by obtaining Services through the GALC Platforms, you may not be entitled to the same consumer protections afforded to consumers dealing with household goods movers.
By using the GALC Platforms to order Services, you acknowledge and agree that you are requesting that GALC provide you with referral/booking services only and that GALC should request and schedule the Services with Third Party Providers on your behalf. You further acknowledge and agree that when GALC arranges for a Third Party Provider to perform loading, unloading, or other moving-related services, GALC is acting in its capacity as a booking agent (and not as a household goods broker or motor carrier). Except as otherwise provided herein (see Section 8 and its subparts below), GALC has no responsibility for any Services, loading or unloading services, moving related services, or other services provided on your behalf by the Third Party Providers. You further acknowledge that you obtain all Services from Third Party Providers at your own risk.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, GALC grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, and revocable license to access and use the GALC Platforms solely for their intended purposes, including (i) to place orders for Services or, in the case of any Third Party Provider using the GALC Platforms, to perform the Services, (ii) to view any User Content (defined below), and (iii) to access and use any content, information, and related materials that may be made available as a result of a request for Services. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by GALC and GALC’s licensors.
You may not: (i) remove any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices from any portion of the GALC Platforms; (ii) reproduce, modify, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute, license, lease, sell, resell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast, or otherwise exploit any GALC Platform or part thereof except as expressly permitted by GALC; (iii) decompile, reverse engineer, or disassemble the Website, any GALC App, or any other GALC Platform unless otherwise permitted by applicable law; (iv) link to, mirror, or frame any portion of any of the Websites, the GALC Apps, or any other GALC Platform; (v) cause or launch any programs or scripts for the purpose of scraping, indexing, surveying, or otherwise data mining any portion of the GALC Platforms or unduly burdening or hindering the operation and/or functionality of any aspect of the GALC Platforms; or (vi) attempt to gain unauthorized access to or impair any aspect of the GALC Platforms or its related systems or networks. You may only access the GALC Platforms through the interfaces that GALC provides for that purpose.
All text, graphics, editorial content, data, formatting, graphs, designs, HTML, look and feel, photographs, music, sounds, images, software, videos, typefaces, and other content (collectively, “Proprietary Material”) that you see or read through the GALC Platforms is owned by GALC, excluding User Content (defined below) which GALC has the right to use. Proprietary Material is protected in all forms, media, and technologies now known or hereinafter developed. GALC owns all Proprietary Material, as well as the coordination, selection, arrangement, and enhancement of such Proprietary Material as a collective work under the United States Copyright Act, as amended. The Proprietary Material is protected by the domestic and international laws of copyright, patents, and other proprietary rights and laws. The Proprietary Material, the GALC Platforms, and all rights therein (including without limitation intellectual property rights and other proprietary rights) are and shall remain GALC’s property. Neither these Terms nor your use of the GALC Platforms convey or grant to you any rights in or related to the Proprietary Material or the GALC Platforms except for the limited license granted above. In addition, neither these Terms nor your use of the GALC Platforms grant you use or reference in any manner to GALC’s company name, logos, product and service names, trademarks, or service marks.
In order to place an order for Services, you must be at least 18 years of age and must provide GALC with a valid e-mail address and phone number and a valid credit or debit card. You authorize GALC to charge or place a hold on your credit up to the full estimated amount immediately after you place your order for Services to charge and the remaining balance, if any, immediately after you receive Services.
When placing an order for Services, you may be eligible for either prorated hourly pricing or fixed pricing. The type of pricing applicable to your order will be communicated to you during booking.
Prorated hourly pricing means that you will receive a quoted hourly rate, and you will be responsible for paying for all time worked at the quoted hourly rate. Prorated hourly pricing is subject to a minimum charge. Please consult a GALC customer service representative for more information about applicable minimums on hourly pricing. When booking a prorated hourly move, you may receive an estimate of fees and costs. This is not a formal estimate but is an estimate of the total fees and costs that may be charged if you use the entire amount of time that you reserve. Your total charges may be higher or lower than the estimated total during booking. The length of your move, and your total costs, will depend upon the circumstances of your move, including, but not limited to, the move location(s), the type and amount of property to be moved, your move readiness, and the speed of the Third Party Providers. Being move ready and providing an accurate and detailed inventory list to GALC in advance of the move are necessary to ensure that enough time is reserved for your move and to provide a reasonably accurate estimate of final fees and costs.
Timeframe pricing means that the price you are quoted is the price that you will pay for your move or other booked Service, even if the move or Service is completed sooner than the quoted timeframe. This is sometimes referred to as a “binding estimate.” Timeframe pricing is, however, subject to a price revision if the information you provide to GALC is determined on move or Service day to have been incomplete or inaccurate. If the circumstances of the move or Service are determined to be different than as described during booking, you may be required to sign a revised agreement with adjusted pricing. In the event that you do not agree to a revision, your move or Service may not be able to be completed or may be canceled.
Any quoted rate may change until you place an order for Services. All quotes are subject to change based on availability and other factors, such as demand and location.
Please note that the number of Third Party Providers assigned to, or that perform, your move may differ from the number listed on any quote or estimate. In the event that a different number of Third Party Providers is assigned to or performs your move and you have agreed to prorated hourly pricing, then, your quoted rate will be updated based on the number of Third Party Providers that actually perform your move.
You may change or cancel an order for Services 72 hours prior to the Service date, including changing the reservation date and/or destination locations. However, modifications to an order may be subject to an increase or change in pricing, depending on availability and other factors submitted by you. Such changes may also be subject to an additional modification or cancellation fee. Order modifications and cancellations are subject to GALC’s cancellation and reservation modification policies. Any and all changes to an order will continue to be governed by these Terms, and you acknowledge and agree to such Terms by placing a change or cancellation request.
You may also discontinue Services at any time while Services are being performed, but you will be responsible for paying for the greater of one hour of pay for each Third Party Provider or the amount of all Services performed through the time the order is discontinued. If you discontinue Services at any time, all Third Party Providers will be required to immediately cease providing all Services and to leave your premises. In addition, you agree that you will not directly or indirectly solicit any Third Party Provider who has been matched by GALC to perform, or who has already performed or begun performing, any portion of the Services on your behalf within a sixty (60) day period following a cancellation or cessation of Services unless GALC has specifically arranged for such Third Party Providers to provide the Services on your behalf. For an avoidance of doubt, this means that you may not cancel an order (or stop an order, e.g., by asking Third Party Providers not to bill time through GALC) for Services after Third Party Providers have arrived to complete the requested Services in order to pay Third Party Providers directly and avoid incurring charges through GALC. In the event that you engage in such improper solicitation and contract interference, you will be ineligible for any refund requests on previous payments and will be liable to GALC for the Charges for which you would have been billed had you not canceled your order for Services. You will also be liable for all reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by GALC in pursuing and collecting such Charges.
You may be required to register and maintain an active personal account to use certain GALC Platforms, such as the GALC Apps. You must be at least 18 years of age to obtain an account. Account registration may require you to submit certain personal information, such as your name, address, mobile phone number, and age, as well as certain payment information (e.g., bank or credit card information). You agree to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date information in your account. Failure to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date account information, including invalid or expired payment information, may result in your inability to access and/or use the GALC Platforms. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under or through your account and agree to maintain the security and secrecy of your account username and password at all times.
You agree that GALC and its subsidiaries and affiliates, and their respective employees, contractors, and agents may contact you at any of the phone numbers or e-mail addresses that you provide, including, but not limited to, by e-mail, text messages, calls, and push notifications. Such communications may also include messages generated by an automatic telephone dialing system. Standard message and data rates may apply. You may opt-out of receiving communications by emailing a request to opt-out to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, opting out of all communications may impact your receipt of the Services.
GALC may, in GALC’s sole discretion, permit you or other Users from time to time to submit, upload, publish, or otherwise make available to GALC through the GALC Platforms, textual, audio and/or visual content and information, including commentary and feedback related to the Services, initiation of support requests, and submissions of entries for competitions and promotions (collectively referred to as “User Content”). Any User Content provided by you remains your property. However, by providing User Content to GALC, you grant GALC a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, modify, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise exploit in any manner such User Content in all formats and distribution channels now known or hereafter devised (including in connection with the Services and GALC’s business and on third-party websites and services), without further notice to or consent from you, and without the requirement of payment to you or any other third party.
You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for all User Content that you make available through the GALC Platforms. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that (i) you either (A) are the sole and exclusive owner of all User Content that you make available through the GALC Platforms or (B) you have all rights, licenses, consents, and releases necessary to grant GALC the license to the User Content as set forth above, and (ii) neither the User Content nor your submission, uploading, publishing, or otherwise making available of such User Content, nor GALC’s use of the User Content as permitted herein, will infringe, misappropriate, or violate a third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
You agree to not provide on the GALC Platforms User Content that is defamatory, libelous, hateful, violent, obscene, pornographic, unlawful, or otherwise offensive, as determined by GALC, in its sole discretion, whether or not such material may be protected by the law. GALC may, but shall not be obligated to, review, monitor, or remove User Content, at GALC’s sole discretion and at any time, without notice to you.
User Content may contain information relating to reviews of specific Third Party Providers. Such reviews are opinions of the specific User and not the opinion of GALC and have not been verified or approved by GALC. YOU AGREE THAT GALC IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY USER CONTENT.
Use of the GALC Platforms may require access to a data network. You are responsible for obtaining the data network access necessary to use such GALC Platforms, if any. Your mobile network’s data and messaging rates and fees may apply if you access or use the GALCs Platforms from a wireless-enabled device. You are responsible for acquiring and updating compatible hardware or devices necessary to access and use the GALC Platforms and any updates thereto. GALC does not guarantee that the GALC Platforms, or any portion thereof, will function on any particular hardware or devices. In addition, the GALC Platforms may be subject to malfunctions and delays inherent in the use of the Internet and electronic communications. You further acknowledge and agree that the GALC Platforms may, from time to time, be unavailable (e.g. due to scheduled maintenance or system upgrades) and that GALC cannot, and does not, guarantee a specific or minimum availability of the GALC Platforms.
Subject to availability and any reservation change fees, you may choose to change your service date to another future date.
After your order for Services is complete and you have received the Services, GALC will send you an e-mail for the final invoice amount (the “Charges”). If you have paid a deposit, such deposit will be applied to your balance, and all remaining Charges are immediately due and payable, and you are responsible for payment of all Charges for Services ordered and received through the GALC Platforms. You authorize GALC to charge the credit or debit card that you provide when placing your order for Services for all Charges. Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes where required by law. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by GALC. If the charge to your credit or debit card is declined, you authorize GALC to use a secondary payment method provided by you, if applicable. In the event that GALC brings an action to enforce its right to payment of the Charges hereunder, GALC will be entitled to recover, in addition to all other amounts and relief, its reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.
You understand and agree that for Prorated hourly pricing, GALC administers payment directly to the Third Party Providers on your behalf, as the Third Party Providers’ limited payment collection agent, and that payment to GALC is intended to fully compensate the Third Party Provider for the Services they provide. Accordingly, your payment to GALC shall be considered the same as issuing payment directly to the Third Party Providers, and you should not issue any payment, other than a tip or gratuity, in your sole discretion, to anyone other than GALC for Services ordered and received through the GALC Platforms. If you issue payment directly to any Third Party Provider, you will still be responsible for paying the full amount of the Charges billed to you by GALC.
You understand and agree that for Timeframe pricing, the down payment goes directly to GALC and is considered as payment for booking and/or referral services provided. The balance for the total quoted price is to be paid to the Contractor(s) directly upon completion of the Service or at the end of the quoted timeframe. If you issue payment directly to any Third Party Provider at any time during the Service and before the end of the timeframe, you expressly consider the Service as complete.
GALC may, in GALC’s sole discretion, issue you promotional offers and discounts that may be redeemed for credit when placing an order for Services. You agree that such promotional offers and discounts: (i) must be used for the intended audience and purpose, and in a lawful manner; (ii) may not be duplicated, sold, or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public unless expressly permitted by GALC; (iii) may be disabled, canceled, or otherwise terminated by GALC at any time for any reason without liability to GALC; (iv) may only be used pursuant to the specific terms that GALC has established for such promotional offer or discount; (v) are not valid for cash; and (vi) may expire prior to your use. Further, GALC reserves the right to withhold or deduct any credits or other features or benefits obtained through the use of any promotional offers and discounts by you or any other User in the event that GALC determines or believes, in its sole discretion, that the use or redemption of the promotional offer or discount was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the terms applicable to the promotional offer or discount or in violation of these Terms.
By using the GALC Platforms and/or requesting the Services, you expressly represent and warrant that you are legally entitled to enter this agreement and that (1) you are at least 18 years old; (2) you reside in the United States or any of its territories; (3) you own or have legal possession to any and all property to be moved under this agreement, if applicable; (4) **you have carefully read and understand these Terms; (5) to the extent you are requesting moving related services, you have been advised that you should consider obtaining insurance to protect you from loss or damage to your personal property items;** and (6) you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this agreement. You further represent and warrant that you will abide by the Terms hereof; your participation in using the GALC Platforms and/or requesting Services is for your own personal use; and you will comply with all applicable laws.
By using the GALC Platforms and/or requesting Services, you agree that (1) you will only use the GALC Platforms and/or request Services for lawful purposes; (2) you will not use the GALC Platforms and/or request Services for sending or storing any unlawful material or for fraudulent purposes; (3) you will not use the GALC Platforms and/or request Services to cause nuisance, annoyance, or inconvenience; (4) you will not impair the proper operation of the network; (5) you will not try to harm GALC or the GALC Platforms and/or impair the performance of the Services in any way whatsoever; (6) you will not copy or distribute the GALC Platforms or other content without written permission from GALC; (7) you will only use the GALC Platforms and/or request Services for your own use and, if applicable, will not resell your order for Services to a third party; and (8) you will provide GALC and/or the Third Party Providers with whatever proof of identity they may reasonably request.
You acknowledge and understand that, notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, GALC has, and shall at all times retain, the right to refuse or cancel an order for Services at any time for any reason. The circumstances that may warrant a refusal or cancellation of Services, include, but are not limited to, the following circumstances:
GALC may cancel an order for Services if you, or someone else at the location to be serviced, is being, is in the process of being, or has been evicted.
GALC and/or the Third Party Providers may refuse to provide or limit the Services and/or your order may be canceled if it is determined, in GALC and/or the Third Party Providers’ sole discretion, that the property you have requested to be moved is prohibited by these Terms, including property explicitly prohibited under Section 8.4 hereof.
*Dangerous, Hazardous, or Unsanitary Conditions*
If the location where the Services are to be performed is either too dangerous, hazardous, or unsanitary, in GALC or the Third Party Providers’ sole discretion, Services may be refused or canceled. For example, your order may be canceled or rescheduled if the location does not meet reasonable cleanliness standards and/or poses a potential health or safety risk (e.g., an unfinished attic, a hoarding scenario, the presence of animal or other human waste products, a flooded or recently flooded location, etc.).
In cases of inclement weather, you may be required to reschedule and/or delay your order for Services to another time, or the order may be canceled or refused without a cancellation fee. If Services are nonetheless performed despite inclement weather, you will not be eligible for protection under the Damage Protection Policy described in Section 8 (and its subparts) below for any damages incurred as a result of the inclement weather. Inclement weather can include, but is not limited to, heavy rain, snow, sleet, hail, lightning, and high winds.
*Access to property*
GALC and/or the Third Party Providers reserve the right to refuse or cancel ordered Services if your property cannot be accessed or is deemed to be, in GALC or the Third Party Providers’ sole discretion, too far away from the location of the Third Party Provider’s moving vehicle. For example, Services may be refused or canceled because a driveway is too dangerous to traverse or the Third Party Providers would be required to walk 100 yards or more to move each item of property to a moving vehicle. If Services are nonetheless performed and the Third Party Providers are required to walk a significant distance (in GALC’s sole discretion) from the moving vehicle to your personal property, you are advised that you or someone else subject to your direction and control should remain with your personal property at each location to ensure that your personal property is not subject to theft. Personal property lost or stolen because Third Party Providers must travel a significant distance (in GALC’s sole discretion) between a moving vehicle and your personal property shall not be covered by the Damage Protection Policy described in Section 8 (and its subparts) below.
*Narrow Doorways, Hallways, or Stairs*
GALC and/or the Third Party Providers may refuse to provide or limit the Services if it is determined, in GALC and/or the Third Party Providers’ sole discretion, that the property you have requested to be moved cannot be safely moved through a narrow doorway, hallway, or other passageway or cannot be safely moved up or down stairs. In the event that you require such Third Party Providers to continue providing Services after being advised of the danger, you waive any right to receive any reimbursement for damages that may result.
*Insufficient Moving Space*
In the event that your property will not fit into a moving truck, pod, or other service vehicle, the Third Party Providers may refuse to continue loading any additional property until such truck, pod, or other vehicle has been unloaded.
Unless otherwise provided herein, if your order is canceled or rescheduled based on the foregoing Terms or any other Term in this agreement, you will be subject to all applicable cancellation or rescheduling fees.
GALC is a labor referral service that connects Users, like you, with Third Party Providers who are able to provide you with the Services that you seek. While GALC attempts to connect you with only high quality Third Party Providers, GALC does not make any representations or warranties with respect to the quality of Services that you may receive and does not, and cannot, guarantee that any Third Party Provider will not damage or lose any of your property. As an independent referral service, GALC is not liable for any property damages that you may sustain as a result of the performance of the Services by Third Party Providers. GALC will not provide you with any other property damage protection other than providing you with the information of the Third Party Provider as required by law. By placing an order with GALC, you understand and agree that you will not be entitled to recover from GALC for any other damages to your property, whether such damages arise in contract, tort, or otherwise. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS CAREFULLY, AS THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. If you do not agree to GALC’s Damage Protection Policy or are in need of additional protection for your personal or real property, you should not place an order with GALC or should obtain additional insurance protection from a third party insurance carrier for your personal or real property prior to the performance of any Services.
If a Third Party Provider arranged by GALC to provide you with loading, unloading, or other non-transportation help Services (a “Contractor” and the “Contractor Services”) damages or loses your personal property while moving your personal property, including, while loading or unloading your personal property in a transportation vehicle provided by you, another company, or a Third Party Provider GALC’s maximum liability shall be limited to the amount of the down payment. By receiving and accepting the Services, you expressly acknowledge and understand that you shall not be entitled to any other damages to your personal property, whether to high priced items, items of sentimental value, or otherwise, other than as set forth herein or in a separate signed writing between you and a Third Party Provider, regardless of whether such damages are negligently or intentionally caused by any Contactor.
If a Third Party Provider causes damage to your real property while performing the Services, any claims will be made directly to the Third Party Provider and/or Contractors while they are still on the premises or at the location where the Service was rendered.
*Damages to Wood Floors*
In the event that wood floors are damaged, GALC will not repair or replace the local area damaged. GALC will not resurface or refinish the entire floor and does not guarantee an exact match with any original pre-Services finish.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, GALC will not pay for any minor nicks or scratches or dents to wood flooring that, in GALC’s sole discretion, may be expected as part of completion of the Services. You should cover your wood flooring with protective materials, including, but not limited to, ram board or other floor protection rolls, doormats, cardboard, rugs, or runners, prior to receiving any Services. You should also ensure that any furniture that you need moved is placed on sliders or that sliders are made available to the Contractors. In addition, if you do not have any covering for your wood flooring, you should not permit the Contractors to use any dollies or other hand trucks, which may be more likely to cause damage to your wood floors.
*Damages to Handrails, Walls, Doors, and Drywall*
GALC will not be liable for what GALC, in its sole discretion, determines are minor nicks, scratches, or scuffs to the real property, including, but not limited to, any paint damage, that you may incur as a result of the Contractors’ performance of the Services.
**GALC will not be liable for any damages to your real property, including, but not limited to, for any damages to lawns, landscaping, sprinklers, sidewalks, or driveways (including, without limitation, any cosmetic damage to driveways or other concrete or paved areas).** You should not allow any transportation or other vehicles to park on your driveway or sidewalks if they are not capable of supporting such vehicles or if you are concerned that they may damage your driveway, sidewalks, or lawn.
If you have sustained damages to your personal or real property as a result of your receipt of the Services from a Third Party Provider, you must file a claim for damages against the Third Party Provider and its Contractors directly through small claims court. Claims may only be filed by the individual that booked the order for Services or the owner of the personal or real property damaged by the Third Party Providers.
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, including the foregoing discussion of the Damage Protection Policy, GALC and its subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of the foregoing entities’ employees, contractors, and agents, shall not be liable for any of the following damages or claims:
You are required to disclose any pre-existing damages to GALC prior to your move. In addition, GALC reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to declare a damage as pre-existing based on its investigation of your claim if, after a good-faith review, facts and circumstances warrant such a determination.
GALC will not pay any damages for minor dents or small nicks or scratches caused by any Third Party Provider (or any agent thereof) to your property as a result of your receipt of the Services. You expressly acknowledge and agree that minor dents or small nicks or scratches are typical of any move and cannot be prevented.
GALC will not be liable for damage to any particleboard, chip-core, or pressboard furniture.
Marble, slate, and stone material items are prone to weakness and cracking overtime. GALC will not be liable for damaged items made exclusively of (or a composite of) natural materials.
GALC will not pay any damages that have been repaired or replaced by you or someone else at your request prior to you filing a claim with GALC or, if completed after a claim has been filed, if completed without the written consent of GALC. You should not repair or replace property before resolving your claim with GALC unless you have obtained prior written consent from GALC.
*Certain Electronics and Appliances*
GALC will not be liable for electronics or appliances that fail to operate after being shipped and/or reconnected. You acknowledge and understand that electronics and appliances are not tested prior to shipment, and as such, it will not be possible to determine whether a damage has occurred due to handling or shipment. In addition, GALC will not be liable for any structural plumbing, electrical systems, or water damage associated with electronics or appliances that are handled by a Contractor. Third Party Providers should require all appliances to be disconnected, uninstalled, and drained (if necessary) by you prior to moving such items. In addition, GALC will not be liable for any damages caused to an electronics device (including, without limitation, any television or other display monitor) that is not properly boxed and protected before handling by a Contractor. You should never allow a television or other display monitor to be shipped or otherwise transported without proper protective packaging and securement.
*Oversized and Extremely Heavy Items*
GALC will not be liable for any damages to items that weigh in excess of 300 pounds or for any items that exceed the clearance of hallways, stairways, or doorways where such items are not disassembled prior to being moved by a Third Party Provider. Common oversized or extremely heavy items include, but are not limited to, certain musical equipment (such as grand pianos), pool tables, hot tubs, ceramic grills, full-size copiers, fireproof cabinets/safes, grandfather clocks, workbenches, exercise equipment, etc.
Prior to your service date, you may submit an inventory of your personal property. GALC will not be liable for any damages for items lost or stolen that are not inventoried prior to your receipt of the Services or that are not documented by a Third Party as being loaded on the day of your move. You acknowledge and agree that, without submission of a documented inventory prior to the service date, and without documentation of items being moved on move day, there is no way to verify whether any item has been lost or stolen.
If you request reassembly of any of your personal property by any Laborer or other Third Party Provider, GALC will not be liable for any damages that may arise as a result of the assembly, attempted assembly, or failed assembly of such items, including, but not limited to, items containing particleboard, chip-core, or pressboard.
GALC does not arrange for Third Party Providers to install or uninstall washers, dryers, dishwashers, ice machines, water coolers, refrigerators, or electrical equipment. If a Third Party Provider provides any such services, GALC will not be liable in any manner for any damages that may arise as a result of the actions or inactions of such Third Party Provider who performed such services. You should not ask any Third Party Provider to provide such services, and you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold GALC and its subsidiaries and affiliates harmless from any expenses, losses, costs, (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs), judgments, settlements, damages, awards, interests, fines, and liabilities of whatever kind, including as imposed by a court of law or by any governmental body or agency, that GALC and/or its subsidiaries and affiliates may incur as a result of, arising out of, or in relation to your decision to do so.
GALC will not be liable for any damages to personal property that Third Party Providers and Contractors are prohibited from moving or transporting, as applicable. Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: hazardous materials, such as combustible liquids (alcoholic beverages, acids, oils, paints, etc.), compressed gasses (aerosols, engine starter fluids, scuba diving tanks, etc.), explosives (ammunition, loaded guns, propane tanks, etc.), flammables (ammonia, bleach, gasoline, motor oil, petroleum products, etc.), perishables (frozen food, plants, produce, refrigerated food, etc.), contraband or other items prohibited by federal or state law (illegal drugs, etc.), stolen property, and other property which you do not have a lawful right to possess.
Although GALC retains the right to cancel, and the Third Party Providers may refuse to complete, an order for Services in the event that you or someone else at the location to be serviced is being evicted, in the event that an order for Services is nonetheless completed, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold GALC and its subsidiaries and affiliates harmless from and against any and all expenses, losses, costs, (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs), judgments, settlements, damages, awards, interests, fines, and liabilities of whatever kind that GALC and/or its subsidiaries or affiliates may incur as a result of, arising out of, or in relation to your or someone else’s eviction.
*Fraudulent Misrepresentations of Weight*
GALC will not pay any damages for any items based on weights that appear, in GALC’s reasonable discretion, to be inaccurate or a misrepresentation of the items’ true weight.
*Packing by You or Your Agents*
GALC will not be liable for damages to items packed by you or your agents (e.g., damages to items in boxes packed by you).
*Exclusions for Packing Services*
In the event that you only order packing services, neither GALC, nor its subsidiaries or affiliates, or their respective employees, agents, or contractors, will be liable for: (i) any damages reported after Third Party Providers leave your property, (ii) any damages that occur in transit, (iii) any damages that occur during unpacking, or (iv) any damages due to the handling of your property by your or your agents or any other third party. In addition, neither GALC, nor its subsidiaries or affiliates, or their respective employees, agents, or contractors, will be liable for any property that is lost or misplaced for any reason. You acknowledge and understand that there is no way for GALC or any Third Party Provider to verify lost or misplaced property because neither GALC nor any Third Party Provider is handling the shipment or otherwise unpacking the items after shipment.
*Tasks Performed at You or Your Agent’s Request*
Neither GALC, nor its subsidiaries or affiliates, or their respective employees, contractors, or agents, shall be liable for any damages that arise as a result of any Contractor or other Third Party Provider following directions given by you or your agents, and you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold GALC and its subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of the foregoing entities’ employees, contractors, and agents, harmless from any expenses, losses, costs, (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs), judgments, settlements, damages, awards, interests, fines, and liabilities of whatever kind that GALC and/or its subsidiaries or affiliates, or each of the foregoing entities’ employees, contractors, or agents, may incur as a result of, arising out of, or in relation to you or your agent’s directions.
*Consequential or Incidental Damages*
As set forth more fully in Section 9.2 below, neither GALC, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or their respective contractors, employees, or agents shall be liable for any consequential or incidental damages that may arise due to any service failure, including, but not limited to, any failure to start or complete the Services. By way of example, but not limitation, this means that GALC shall not be liable for any damages that you may incur if your move or other Services are unable to be performed or completed on a scheduled date.
*Acts of God and Other Similar Circumstances*
Neither GALC, nor its subsidiaries or affiliates, or their respective employees, contractors, or agents, shall be liable for any damages caused by or resulting from an act of God; war hostilities; rioting; fire; explosion; flood; sabotage; transportation or labor strike, lockouts, or injunctions; compliance with governmental laws, regulations, or orders; or any other cause whether or not of the same class or kind enumerated herein which affects performance of the Agreement arising from or attributable to acts, events, omissions, or accidents beyond the reasonable control of the Company or the Service Providers.
For your safety, you are asked not to participate in any loading, unloading, or moving of property or in any other Services. To the extent that you or your agents or family members choose to do so, you acknowledge and agree to indemnify, defend, and hold GALC and its subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of the foregoing entities’ employees, contractors, and agents, harmless from any expenses, losses, costs, (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs), judgments, settlements, damages, awards, interests, fines, and liabilities of whatever kind that GALC and/or its subsidiaries or affiliates, or each of the foregoing entities’ employees, contractors, or agents, may incur as a result of, arising out of, or in relation to you or your agents or family members’ decision to do so.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you order any additional tools for the move or Service, you may be provided access to certain moving equipment, including, but not limited to, hand trucks, appliance dollies, moving pads, ratchet straps, etc. (collectively, the “Moving Equipment”). YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT NEITHER GALC NOR ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES OR AFFILIATES MAKES ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE MERCHANTABILITY OF THE MOVING EQUIPMENT OR ITS FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THERE IS NO WARRANTY THAT THE MOVING EQUIPMENT IS, OR WILL BE, SUITED FOR YOUR INTENDED USE OR THAT IT IS FREE FROM DEFECTS. You assume all risks inherent in the operation and use of the Moving Equipment and will take all necessary precautions to protect all persons and property from injury or damage while in possession of the Moving Equipment. Neither GALC nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates shall be responsible to you or to any other party, including any of your agents, for any loss, damage, or injury (including, but not limited to, any personal injury (including death), loss of profits, business interruption, or other special or consequential damages) caused by, resulting from, or in any way connected with the Moving Equipment or its operation or use, or any defect with respect thereto. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold GALC and its subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of the foregoing entities’ employees, contractors, and agents, harmless from and against any and all liability, claims, and damages of any kind (including attorneys’ fees) for injuries or death to persons and damage to property arising out of the use, maintenance, instruction, operation, possession, or rental of the Moving Equipment by you or any other third party not authorized by GALC, however caused. You agree to inspect each piece of Moving Equipment prior to its use to ensure that such Moving Equipment is in good working order and repair and to notify GALC and the Contractor providing the Moving Equipment immediately in the event that any piece of the Moving Equipment is damaged, unusable, or unsafe to use. In the event that any Moving Equipment is damaged, unusable, or unsafe, the Contractor will arrange for a replacement piece of Moving Equipment to be provided if available. You acknowledge and agree that your sole remedy for any failure or defect in the Moving Equipment shall be termination of any rental charges accruing after the time of failure. All Moving Equipment must be returned to the truck or other motor vehicle (arranged by GALC in connection with your request for transportation services) prior to the Contractor’s departure from your origin and destination. You agree to reimburse GALC or its Third Party Providers for any Moving Equipment that is not returned.
If you dispute the handling of your claim for damages, including, but not limited to, any proposed claim settlement, you acknowledge and understand that your disputed claim is governed by the alternate dispute resolution and arbitration provision contained in Section 10 (and its subparts) below and that you must abide by the procedures discussed therein. If you desire to file a claim for arbitration pursuant to Section 10 (and its subparts), or otherwise contest the validity of the arbitration provision, you must commence such claim within eighteen (18) months of the filing of your initial claim.
THE GALC PLATFORMS AND THE SERVICES THAT YOU MAY ORDER THROUGH THE GALC PLATFORMS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE.” GALC EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING SPECIFICALLY THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, UNLESS OTHERWISE PROVIDED HEREIN, GALC MAKES NO REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY, OR GUARANTEE REGARDING THE RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, QUALITY, SUITABILITY, OR AVAILABILITY OF ANY SERVICES ORDERED THROUGH THE GALC PLATFORMS, OR THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE OR THAT THEY WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR EXPECTATIONS.
BY ORDERING AND/OR RECEIVING THE SERVICES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU MAY BE EXPOSED TO SITUATIONS INVOLVING THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS THAT ARE POTENTIALLY UNSAFE, OFFENSIVE, HARMFUL, OR OTHERWISE OBJECTIONABLE AND THAT THE USE OF THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS THROUGH THE GALC PLATFORMS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND JUDGMENT. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED HEREIN, GALC HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY SERVICES PROVIDED TO YOU BY ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDER. FURTHERMORE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTAND, AND AGREE THAT GALC IS NOT AN EMPLOYER OF ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDER, THAT THE THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS MAY NOT BE PROFESSIONALLY LICENSED OR PERMITTED, AND THAT THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF YOUR RECEIPT OF THE SERVICES REMAINS SOLELY WITH YOU TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
THIS DISCLAIMER DOES NOT ALTER YOUR RIGHTS AS A CONSUMER TO THE EXTENT NOT PERMITTED UNDER THE LAW IN THE JURISDICTION OF YOUR PLACE OF RESIDENCE.
GALC, ITS SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, AND CONTRACTORS SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN SECTION 8 (AND ITS RESPECTIVE SUBPARTS 8.1 THROUGH 8.6) ABOVE, UNLESS OTHERWISE SET FORTH IN A SIGNED WRITING BETWEEN YOU AND AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PARTY TO BE CHARGED. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, IN NO EVENT WILL GALC, ITS SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, AND CONTRACTORS’ LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PERSONAL OR REAL PROPERTY EXCEED SUCH LIMITATIONS FOR ONE ORDER.
IN ADDITION, GALC, ITS SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, AND CONTRACTORS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST REVENUE, LOSS OF BUSINESS, GOODWILL, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, LOST DATA, PERSONAL INJURY (INCLUDING DEATH), OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, THE GALC, YOUR ORDER FOR SERVICES, AND/OR THE SERVICES PERFORMED BY THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE, OR IMPUTED), PRODUCTS LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY), AND EVEN IF GALC HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. FOR ANY SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT EXCLUDED UNDER THESE TERMS, THE TOTAL LIABILITY FOR SUCH LOSSES SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID FOR BY YOU FOR ANY SERVICES.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold GALCs, its subsidiaries, and affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, and contractors harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, fines, judgments, penalties, damages, losses, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising from: (i) your violation of any third-party right, including, without limitation, any right to privacy, publicity rights, or intellectual property rights (including any User Content submitted by you); (ii) your wrongful or improper use of the GALCs Platforms or the Services; (iii) any actual or alleged breach of the Terms or your representations, warranties, and obligations set forth in these Terms; (iv) your violation of any rights of another, including any of the Third Party Providers or any other User; (v) your violation of any law, rule, or regulation of the United States or any other country; and (vi) your negligence or willful misconduct (including any negligence or willful misconduct in packing any personal property for shipment or relocation by a Third Party Provider).
This obligation and any other indemnification obligation set forth in these Terms will survive the termination of these Terms and/or your use of the GALCs Platforms.
Prior to pursuing any other available remedy, including arbitration pursuant to the provisions below, you agree to attempt in good faith for a period of sixty (60) days (the “Informal Dispute Resolution Period”) to negotiate a resolution of any dispute, claim, or controversy that you may have against GALC or any Third Party Provider or any dispute, claim, or controversy otherwise arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof; your use of the GALC Platforms; or your order for, receipt of, or the performance of the Services (collectively, the “Disputes”). The Informal Dispute Resolution Period shall commence on the first day that you submit written notice of your Dispute(s) to GALC.
If the parties are unable to resolve any Dispute during the Informal Dispute Resolution Period, you agree that such unresolved Dispute or Disputes will be settled by final and binding arbitration between you and GALC, provided, however, that each party retains the right (without any requirement to negotiate during an Informal Dispute Resolution Period) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and GALC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and GALC otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of Sections 10.2 through 10.7 hereof will be deemed void and severable. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, Section 10 of these Terms (and each of its respective subparts) will survive any termination of this agreement.
Unless otherwise agreed to by you and GALC, the arbitration of all Disputes will be administered by a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by Section 10 hereof (and its respective subparts). The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/Rules or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act or, if the Federal Arbitration Act is found not to apply, the laws of the State of California.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at: https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Commercial%20Demand%20for%20Arbitration.pdf. The written Demand for Arbitration shall include identification of the parties, a statement of the legal and factual basis for the claim(s), and a specification of the remedy sought and shall be served by hand, by first class mail, return receipt requested, or by certified mail to GALC at the following address: Legal Department, The Great American Labor Company, PO Box 2365, Orcutt, CA 93457.
Unless you and GALC agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in the State of California. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and GALC submit to the arbitrator unless you request a hearing and the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator bases the award. The arbitrator will have no authority to award punitive or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages, except as may be required by statute. The arbitrator shall not award consequential damages in any arbitration initiated under this arbitration provision, and any award of damages must be consistent with Sections 8, 9, and 10 hereof (and their respective subparts), including their respective limitations of liability. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief in such Dispute. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final, conclusive, and binding on the parties to the arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
The parties shall be responsible for their own respective arbitration expenses, including attorneys’ fees, unless otherwise provided by applicable state or federal law.

You acknowledge and agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, GALC, or any Third Party Provider as a result of these Terms, your use of the GALC Platforms, or your receipt of any Services.

No waiver of any of the provisions of these Terms shall constitute a waiver of any other provisions whether or not similar, nor shall any waiver constitute a continuing waiver. No waiver shall be deemed effective or binding upon either party unless executed in writing by the party making the waiver. The failure or refusal of GALC to insist upon the strict performance of any provision of these Terms or to exercise any right in any one or more instances or circumstances shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of the provision or right, nor shall the failure or refusal be deemed a customary practice contrary to the provision or right. Rights and remedies under these Terms or under applicable law shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any particular right shall not be exclusive of any other right or remedy provided by these Terms or allowed under applicable law.
These Terms (and any other policies and terms referred to herein) constitute the entire agreement between you and GALC with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all prior agreements, negotiations, representations, and promises, whether written or oral, between you and GALC.
