Terms of Service

Last Updated: July 6, 2022

These terms of service ("Terms") are between you and Boom and Bucket Inc. ("Boom & Bucket," "we," "our," or "us"), and establish the terms that apply to you when you use the Service (as defined below).

BY USING THE SERVICE OR BY CLICKING "I AGREE" OR "SUBMIT" YOU INDICATE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND YOUR AGREEMENT TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS. YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICE IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS. We are constantly improving the Service, so these Terms may need to change as we do. We can change these Terms at any time, and if we do, we will make reasonable efforts to provide you with prior notice of any material changes. Your continued use of the Service after any change to these Terms means that you accept the new version. You should consult these Terms each time you access the Service to view any changes. These Terms were last modified on the date indicated above.

AS DESCRIBED BELOW, THESE TERMS PROVIDE FOR THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS, AND LIMIT THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN A DISPUTE. YOU CAN OPT OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE BY CONTACTING SUPPORT@BOOMANDBUCKET.COM WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER FIRST ACCEPTING THESE TERMS AND STATING YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME AND THAT YOU DECLINE THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.

      3. Buyer will inspect the Unit immediately upon arrival at Buyer's location, or onsite at the Sellers location as applicable. The Buyer must verify the Seller's representations and notify Boom & Bucket of any discrepancies within 48 hours of receiving the Unit.
      4. Buyer is financially responsible and assumes all risk of damage and loss on the Unit beginning at the point of pick up (by Buyer or its agent) or delivery (by third party transporter), unless shipping is conducted by a Boom & Bucket preferred shipping partner.
      5. Buyer will not have any repairs performed prior to Boom & Bucket validating the claim under the [Guarantee]. Cost for any repairs performed prior to validation of the claim will not be covered under the Guarantee.
    5. Buyer Expectations. Boom & Bucket's assessment of a Unit before sale is limited to the following:
      1. Boom & Bucket inspectors drive the Unit around Seller's lot, but do not test Units at road speeds.
      2. Boom & Bucket provides an on-site visual inspection of the Unit listed through Boom & Bucket's platform, including exterior, interior, undercarriage and frame (without lifting the vehicle).
      3. The mechanical inspection may be limited to checking the engine oil and coolant, starting and running the engine, and driving the Unit in the lot to test the functionality of the transmission by getting the transmission into first gear and reverse
    6. Processing Procedure.
      1. When a Unit is sold through the Boom & Bucket platform, Boom & Bucket will email Buyer and Seller a Bill of Sale. Seller will also receive an express shipping label for the title paperwork if it has not already been provided.
      2. Upon receipt of the Bill of Sale, Seller must send the title to Boom & Bucket within seven calendar days.
      3. Seller will either provide a signed title, or an unsigned title and a signed Power of Attorney giving Boom & Bucket the right to sign the title on Seller's behalf.

      6. If Buyer has chosen to use Boom & Bucket-arranged transportation facilitation services, Boom & Bucket will arrange for transportation of the Unit.
  3. Payment.
    1. Payment. All prices are in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise indicated. Before you pay any fees, you will have an opportunity to review the fees that you will be charged before you accept them. 
    2. Payment Processing. Payment processing services for Boom & Bucket may be provided by our third-party payment processors, which may include Stripe Inc. (“Stripe”). Stripe uses your credit card to make payments. The processing of credit card charges or credits, as applicable, relating to your use of the Service will be subject to the Stripe Services Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (collectively, the “Stripe Services Agreement”). You hereby agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, which may be modified by Stripe from time to time as set forth therein. As a condition of Boom & Bucket enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide Boom & Bucket with current, accurate, and complete information about you and your payment methods (billing address, credit card number, expiration date, etc.) and you authorize Boom & Bucket to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Boom & Bucket.
    3. Units. Prices and descriptions for Units are dependent on the Seller and subject to change without notice. We may limit the sales of Units to any person, geographic region, or jurisdiction. We do not warrant that the quality of any Units you purchase will meet your expectations. The only guarantees we make concerning the Units are those contained in [Guarantee]. We may refuse any order you place with us. If we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the email, billing address, or phone number you provide. 
    4. Shipping, Returns, and Cancellation by Boom & Bucket. Boom & Bucket maintains partnerships with several commercial shipping companies, whose services we make available for use with our Buyers.  Boom & Bucket will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that said partners (a) have the requisite licenses and certifications to execute logistics services on behalf of our Buyers safely & efficiently and (b) carry the appropriate Certificate of Insurance (COI) required to ship Units purchased on our platform.  Buyers/Sellers can generally expect pickup and delivery of equipment within one week of a successful transaction (once both parties have signed the Bill of Sale via e-signature). If the Buyer elects to arrange for its own logistics or have a third party of its choice perform logistics or shipping services, the Buyer certifies that equipment will be picked up within one week of signing the Bill of Sale.  Furthermore, if Buyer elects to arrange its own transportation for the Unit, the Buyer assumes all liability and responsibility for all damage incurred from the time of pickup at the Sellers location and waives the right to bring claims under the Guarantee. The risk of loss and title for all Units purchased by you and shipped by us one of our preferred vendors pass to you upon the vendor's delivery of the Unit to the location you have designated. If a dispute emerges between the Buyer and Seller after the transaction has taken place, Boom & Bucket reserves the right to evaluate the circumstances of the sale and, in its sole discretion, determine whether the sale should be cancelled and the Unit returned to the Seller. If Boom & Bucket cancels a sale and the Unit has already been delivered to the Buyer, the Buyer assumes full responsibility for safety and security of the Unit until the Unit is returned to the Seller.

  12. Indemnification.
    1. Defense. At Boom & Bucket's option and request, you will defend Boom & Bucket, its affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, and contractors (the “Boom & Bucket Parties”) from any actual or threatened third-party claim, proceeding, or suit arising out of or based on: (1) your breach of any representation, warranty, or covenant in these Terms; (2) your violation of applicable law or any third-party intellectual property, proprietary, or privacy right; (3) any dispute between you and any other User or any third party; or (4) your use of the Service in a manner not authorized under these Terms (each, a “Claim”).

Boom & Bucket may participate in the defense of a Claim at its own expense and with counsel of its own choosing.
    2. Indemnification. You will indemnify the Boom & Bucket Parties from and pay: (1) all damages, costs, and attorneys' fees finally awarded against a Boom & Bucket Party in any Claim; (2) all out-of-pocket costs (including attorneys' fees) reasonably incurred by a Boom & Bucket Party in connection with the defense of a Claim; and (3) all amounts that you agree to pay to any third party to settle any Claim.
  13. Limitation of Liability.
    1. EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER BOOM & BUCKET NOR ANY BOOM & BUCKET PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS, OR LOSS OF DATA, EVEN IF BOOM & BUCKET IS APPRISED OF THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUCH DAMAGES OCCURRING. BOOM & BUCKET SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, LIABILITY, OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF YOUR RECEIPT OR PROVISION OF UNITS AND SERVICES, OR ANY THIRD-PARTY SERVICES.
    2. DAMAGES CAP. BOOM & BUCKET'S TOTAL LIABILITY OF ALL KINDS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE (INCLUDING WARRANTY CLAIMS), REGARDLESS OF THE FORUM AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY ACTION OR CLAIM IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF: (1) THE AMOUNT OF FEES PAID BY YOU FOR UNITS SOLD BY BOOM & BUCKET DURING THE SIX MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE CLAIM (DETERMINED AS OF THE DATE OF ANY FINAL JUDGMENT IN AN ACTION); OR (2) $100.
  14. New Jersey Notice. IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF NEW JERSEY, SECTIONS 11.B (DISCLAIMER) AND 3 (LIMITATION OF LIABILITY) ARE INTENDED TO BE ONLY AS BROAD AS IS PERMITTED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY. IF ANY PORTION OF THESE SECTIONS IS HELD TO BE INVALID UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY, THE INVALIDITY OF SUCH PORTION SHALL NOT AFFECT THE VALIDITY OF THE REMAINING PORTIONS OF THE APPLICABLE SECTIONS.
  15. Release. If you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release us (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents) from all claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. You expressly waive any protections (whether statutory or otherwise) that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release. Nothing in this provision will prevent Boom & Bucket from cancelling a sale as provided in Section 3.D. 
  16. Arbitration.
    1. Generally. If you are not a resident of the United States, this Section 16 (Arbitration) will only apply to you to the extent applicable law in your country of residence permits. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Boom & Bucket in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and Boom & Bucket agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Service will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Terms or your use of the Service, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the expiration or termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND BOOM & BUCKET ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE ACTION. YOU FURTHER UNDERSTAND THAT THIS SECTION 16 WILL APPLY TO YOU AND BOOM & BUCKET UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO OPT OUT PURSUANT TO SECTION 16.J (OPT OUT). Whether to agree to arbitration is an important decision. It is your decision to make, and you should not rely solely on the information provided in these Terms, as they are not intended to contain a complete explanation of the consequences of arbitration. You should take further steps to conduct research and to consult with others, including an attorney, regarding the consequences of your decision, just as you would when making any other important business or life decision.
    2. Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 16.A (Generally), nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (1) bring an individual action in small claims court; (2) bring an action in a court pursuant to the California Private Attorneys General Act of 2004, California Labor Code § 2698 et seq.; (3) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (4) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
    3. Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Boom & Bucket will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Boom & Bucket. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
    4. Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party within the applicable statute of limitations period (“Notice”). Boom & Bucket's email address for Notice is support@boomandbucket.com. The Notice must: (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; (2) set forth the specific relief sought; and (3) if you are sending the Notice to Boom & Bucket, include your name and address (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 45 days after the Notice is received, you or Boom & Bucket may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Boom & Bucket must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Boom & Bucket will pay you the highest of the following: (a) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (b) the last written settlement amount offered by Boom & Bucket in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator's award; or (c) $1,000.
    5. Fees; Location; Language. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, Boom & Bucket will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Austin, Texas but if the claim is for $15,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (1) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (2) through a non-appearance-based telephone hearing; or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Boom & Bucket for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits. The language of the arbitration shall be English, unless you do not speak English, in which case the arbitration shall be conducted in both English and your native language. 
    6. Confidentiality. The parties agree to keep confidential the existence of the arbitration, the arbitral proceedings, the submissions made by the parties, and the decisions made by the arbitrator, including its awards, except as required by applicable law and to the extent not already in the public domain.
    7. No Class Actions. YOU AND BOOM & BUCKET AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (OTHER THAN ACTIONS UNDER THE CALIFORNIA PRIVATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL ACT OF 2004, CALIFORNIA LABOR CODE § 2698 ET SEQ., WHICH ARE NOT COVERED BY THIS SECTION 16 (ARBITRATION)).
