Dreamline Logistics LLC is a registered and licensed carrier, MC#123871 and broker, USDOT Number 3172148 with the U.S. Department of Transportation. Customer is the registered legal owner of the vehicle(s) being transported and has authority to enter into this Agreement or has been authorized by the vehicle’s legal owner (s) to enter into this Agreement. This agreement between the customer, (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") and Dreamline Logistics LLC (hereinafter referred to as "Dreamline") allows Dreamline to contract with another licensed and insured Motor Carrier(s) to transport the vehicle(s) described in this shipping order. By using our services, you and the person or entity you represent accept all of the terms and conditions of service stated herein. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and those in any other document, including a motor carrier bill of lading, tariff or service guide, or any other documents, this Agreement will supersede and control as between you and Dreamline. This Agreement cannot be modified by anyone except for Dreamline.
By clicking to accept or agree to the Agreement when this option is made available to you, you: (i) acknowledge that you have read and understood this Agreement in its entirety; (ii) accept and agree to be bound by this Agreement in its entirety; (iii) are entering into a legally binding contract with Dreamline; and (iv) acknowledge that, except as otherwise expressly provided, this Agreement is solely between you and Dreamline. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU SHALL NOT USE THE SERVICES.
Dreamline will identify and contract with a transport car carrier (“Carrier”) to transport your Vehicle (as defined in this Agreement) in accordance with your order (the “Services”). Dreamline’s Services are considered rendered when Dreamline has designated a Carrier to transport your Vehicle. In providing the Services, Dreamline is acting solely in the capacity of an auto transport broker to connect you with a Carrier to move your Vehicle. Dreamline is not responsible for moving your Vehicle, nor will Dreamline take possession of your Vehicle.
To place an order, you must provide accurate information identifying your vehicle that will be transported using the Services (the “Vehicle”), whether the Vehicle is operable, addresses for pickup and delivery, preferred pickup date, the names and contact information for responsible individuals who will be present at pickup and delivery, the type of transport you would like (e.g., open or closed carrier), and a credit/debit card number for payment. After you initially provide your order information, Dreamline will send you an email (“Verification Email”) containing your order information and the fees you will be charged for Services based on the information you provided. At that time, you must review and confirm your information and acceptance of the fee and this Agreement by submitting your order on the Dreamline website as directed in the Verification Email. By submitting your order, you represent that all information you provided (as presented in the Verification Email) is complete and accurate and agree to pay the fees for the Services and transportation of your Vehicle. Dreamline has no responsibility to provide Services until your order is submitted. By submitting your order, you authorize us to provide your contact information and all order details to prospective Carriers and represent and warrant that you are the registered legal owner of the Vehicle, or that the legal owner of the Vehicle has duly authorized you to enter into this Agreement and acquire services to transport the Vehicle in accordance with the order.
Customer agrees to pay in full the fees for Services and any additional charges that may be incurred in accordance with this Agreement. The fees for Services will be set forth in the Verification Email and on the Dreamline website before you submit your order. The total fee is due in two installments, the first due when Dreamline designates a Carrier to transport your Vehicle (the “Initial Payment”) and the balance due when your Vehicle is delivered (the “Remaining Balance”).
The Initial Payment must be paid by credit/debit card or direct money transfer. By submitting an order (which must include your credit/debit card information), you authorize Dreamline to immediately conduct a $1 authorization to validate the card and then to charge the Initial Payment to the card when it becomes due.
The Remaining Balance and any additional charges incurred in accordance with this Agreement must be paid in full by credit/debit card, direct money transfer or cash payment directly to the Carrier upon delivery of your Vehicle. Failure to remit the Remaining Balance when due will result in storage of the Vehicle at your expense until the balance is paid in full.
All amounts due must be paid in full when due and the fees are not subject to dispute or offset for any damages or any other reason (including, without limitation, because you are not satisfied with the Services). Once paid, charges are non-refundable. If your form of payment for the Remaining Balance (when collected by Dreamline) is rejected. In that case, we will contact you for an alternative form of payment and reserve the right to withhold further services until payment is made. Failure to timely provide an alternate form of payment may result in a delay in designating a Carrier to transport your Vehicle and/or delivery your Vehicle.
In addition, if you fail to make any payment when due or we receive a chargeback for your payment (whether due to a dispute of the charge or any other reason), then you must pay Dreamline the outstanding amount owed plus reimbursement for all reasonable costs incurred in collecting any overdue payment or chargeback and related interest, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, legal expenses, court costs, and collection agency fees. All late payments and chargebacks will be charged interest, calculated from the date the payment was originally due, at a lesser rate: (a) 1.5% per month and (b) the highest rate permissible under applicable law.
You may change your order at any time prior to your Vehicle being picked up by the Carrier designated by Dreamline. Order changes may result in additional fees. If the additional fees are not agreed upon, the order will be canceled. If you cancel your order after a Carrier has been designated to transport your Vehicle, you will be charged a cancellation fee in the amount of your Initial Payment, as our services have been rendered. Orders cannot be canceled or changed after the Vehicle has been picked up. All order change and cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be notified by email (at the email address provided on your order form) when a Carrier has been designated to transport your Vehicle. The designation email will include information about the Carrier as well as estimated pickup and delivery dates.
You shall take the following steps prior to the designated pickup time to prepare your Vehicle for Transport:
a) Remove and secure all loose parts, fragile accessories, and low hanging spoilers, etc.;
b) Remove all non-permanent, outside mounted luggage and other racks;
c) Remove or deactivate any toll pass transponders or other sensors that may get charged to your account (e.g., EZ-Pass). Note that 100% of any toll charges incurred by the Client are the responsibility of the Client;
d) Ensure your Vehicle is in good working condition (unless previously noted on your order) and with between 1/4 and 1/2 tank of fuel;
e) Disarm any alarm system or provide Carrier with keys and instructions for arming/disarming any alarm system; and
f) Remove all personal belongings and sensitive materials and do not store any dangerous or illegal items inside the Vehicle (including, but not limited to, explosives, guns, ammunition, fireworks, flammable materials, alcohol, legal or illegal drugs, money, legal or financial documents, pets, plants, and any other personal belongings, sensitive materials, or unlawful contraband).
Failure to take these steps will result in you being liable for damages caused to your Vehicle, the transport vehicle, or other property. Neither Carrier nor Dreamline will be liable for any damages or loss caused to your Vehicle or any other property that is caused in part by your failure to reasonably comply with this Agreement. Any items left in your Vehicle shall be at your own risk.
By submitting an order, you authorize the designated Carrier to operate and transport your Vehicle between the pickup and delivery location and take such steps the Carrier deems necessary to complete such transportation, including driving the Vehicle (operation of the vehicle by Carrier may be covered by your insurance). Either Dreamline or the Carrier will contact you prior to pickup or delivery to inform you of the approximate time and location of such pickup or delivery. The Carrier will attempt to make the actual pickup and delivery location as close to the address requested as possible, taking various factors into account, including, without limitation, transportation restriction laws, and safety. These factors may require you and the Carrier to designate an alternative pickup/delivery location other than the one you originally requested. If you are unable to be at the designated pickup/delivery location at the designated time, you must designate with the Carrier another individual (who must be at least 18 years old) to act as your agent for purposes of the pickup/delivery. You are solely responsible for the acts and omissions of your designee. You and your Vehicle must be present at the pickup location at the designated time or you risk cancellation of your order and incurring the cancellation fee. If you are not at the delivery location at the designated time, your Vehicle may be stored and/or the delivery delayed, each at your sole expense.
Pickup. At the time of Vehicle pick up, prior to Carrier taking possession of the Vehicle, you and Carrier shall conduct a full inspection of the Vehicle for existing exterior damage. The results of this inspection shall be recorded on the inspection report on the Bill of Lading. You and Carrier shall acknowledge the existing condition of the Vehicle by signing the Bill of Lading. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING AND RETAINING A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL BILL OF LADING FOR YOUR RECORDS. IF A PAPER COPY IS NOT AVAILABLE, A PICTURE OR PHOTOCOPY IS SUFFICIENT. If the Vehicle is found inoperable, contains any additional items inside or outside that are not part of your stock vehicle or is not as described in the order (e.g. oversized), you may be subject to additional charges by the Carrier which will be payable upon delivery.
Delivery. At the time of Vehicle delivery, you and Carrier shall conduct a full inspection of the Vehicle for any exterior damage that may have been caused during transport. The results of this inspection shall be recorded on the inspection report on the Bill of Lading. You must notate any new damage to the Vehicle (as compared to the Vehicle’s condition at the time of pickup) on the Bill of Lading inspection report. You and Carrier shall acknowledge the condition of the Vehicle by signing the Bill of Lading. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING AND RETAINING A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL BILL OF LADING FOR YOUR RECORDS. IF A PAPER COPY IS NOT AVAILABLE, A PICTURE OR PHOTOCOPY IS SUFFICIENT. BY SIGNING THE BILL OF LADING WITHOUT NOTATION OF DAMAGE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU RECEIVED YOUR VEHICLE IN SATISFACTORY CONDITION AND WITHOUT DAMAGE AND THEREBY RELEASE DREAMLINE AND CARRIER OF ANY CLAIMS OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR VEHICLE.
Carrier’s responsibility for the Vehicle commences only when the Bill of Lading is signed by you and Carrier at pickup and terminates no later than when you sign the Bill of Lading at delivery or otherwise take delivery of the Vehicle.
Transportation services are subject to delays caused by numerous factors prior to or during transport of your Vehicle, many of which are out of the control of Dreamline and the Carrier, including, without limitation, road conditions, weather, and mechanical issues. Therefore, neither Dreamline nor Carrier guarantee pickup/delivery dates, times, or locations. Any estimate of pickup/delivery date, time, or location that is provided to you by Dreamline or Carrier is approximate and subject to change.
We strongly urge you (or your designee) to be present at the pickup/delivery location when your Vehicle is picked up/delivered and strongly urge against you arranging for pickup/delivery of your Vehicle when neither you nor your designee will be present at the pickup/delivery location when your Vehicle is picked up/delivered. If you (or your designee) fail to show at the pickup/delivery location when your Vehicle is picked up/delivered or you arrange with either Dreamline or the Carrier for pickup/delivery of your Vehicle when you (or your designee) cannot be present, then you waive certain rights under this Agreement, including the right to inspect your Vehicle and notate any damage. In such instances, and without limiting in any way the disclaimers, limitations of liability, and other provisions set forth herein:
(a) in no way shall Dreamline be responsible for damage to or loss of your Vehicle or any part or content thereof;
(b) you may be required by the Carrier and/or Dreamline to sign an additional release or waiver of liability;
(c) you may be required by the Carrier to make alternative arrangements for pickup/delivery of your Vehicle and keys;
(d) you take sole responsibility for additional costs incurred as a result of the alternative pickup/delivery arrangements including, without limitation, costs related to shipping Vehicle keys and any other contents of the Vehicle, towing/booting fees, your transportation costs to any alternative delivery location (for example, if your Vehicle is towed by a third party or the Carrier determines, in its sole discretion, to take your Vehicle to be stored), cancellation fees, and storage fees;
(e) you retain sole responsibility for obtaining permission for your Vehicle to remain at the designated pickup location in your absence and any damage or loss thereto until the Carrier actually picks up your Vehicle; and
(f) you take sole responsibility for obtaining permission for delivery of your Vehicle to the designated delivery location in your absence and your Vehicle’s presence at that location and any damage or loss thereto from delivery until you retrieve your Vehicle.
Dreamline designates a Carrier to transport your Vehicle for an amount mutually agreed upon as the Name Your Price Promise. Dreamline’s subsidy provided by this provision excludes all additional charges incurred in accordance with this Agreement. The Name Your Price Promise is void if you change your Order after we send the Verification Email, any information you provide in placing your order is materially incorrect, other material details about your order change after we send the Verification Email, or if your car is listed by another company. Order information and details that are deemed material include, but are not limited to, Vehicle year, make and model, whether the Vehicle is operable or inoperable, the pickup and delivery addresses, the first available pickup date, the payment method selected and other restrictions or requirements regarding the acceptable pickup and delivery dates and times.
YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT DREAMLINE HAS NO LIABILITY FOR ANY ACT, OMISSION OR DECISION MADE BY DREAMLINE OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING CARRIER. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, AND DREAMLINE MAKES NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS, STATUTORY OR IMPLIED, COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OF TRADE OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, CUSTOM, TRADE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR AVAILABILITY. DREAMLINE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE AVAILABLE OR WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS.
SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OR ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH EVENT, DREAMLINE’S WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN SUCH JURISDICTION.
All claims for damage caused by the transport of your Vehicle must be submitted in writing to the Carrier within two (2) business days of delivery. Failure to submit such a claim may result in the denial of your claim. Carriers are required by law to maintain certain levels of insurance covering liability. While Dreamline undertakes no obligation to ensure the Carrier maintains in force insurance coverage as required by law, if Dreamline does request verification of coverage from the Carrier, Dreamline is entitled to rely on documents provided by or obtained from the Carrier, the Department of Transportation, the Carrier’s insurer, or any other party. You shall not dispute any charges or offset any claim for damage from the fees due. All fees must be paid in full when due, and any claims for damages must be subsequently filed in accordance with this Agreement.
DREAMLINE DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY ARISING FROM OR CONNECTED TO THE SERVICES AND TRANSPORT OF YOUR VEHICLE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DAMAGE OR LOSS TO YOUR VEHICLE, YOUR PERSONAL PROPERTY, AND ANY OTHER PROPERTY, WHETHER OWNED BY YOU OR ANY OTHER PARTY.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL DREAMLINE OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE, INABILITY TO USE, OR THE RESULTS OF USE OF THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY; INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT, ARISING OUT OF THE USE, INABILITY TO USE, OR THE RESULTS OF USE OF THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. DREAMLINE’S CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICES, OR THE TRANSPORT OF YOUR VEHICLE SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF (A) THE FEES YOU PAID TO DREAMLINE LESS ANY FEES THAT DREAMLINE PASSED THROUGH TO THE CARRIER PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT (EXCLUDING ANY STORAGE FEES CAUSED, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, BY YOUR ACT OR OMISSION) AND (B) THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
In addition to, and in no way limiting, the foregoing limitations of liability, neither Dreamline nor Carrier will be liable or responsible for damages, including without limitation any of the following, not caused by Carrier’s negligence:
a) Damage caused by fluids, acids, cooling system antifreeze, or industrial fallout.

You may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Dreamline. Dreamline’s failure to insist upon or enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right.
