Terms of Service
Last updated: 12.11.2015
Welcome to MoveAdvisor—the app and site from MoveAdvisor eood (“MoveAdvisor,” “we,” “us,” or “our“) that connects you with moving companies (each, a “Mover“) who will move your stuff wherever you want.
These Terms of Service (“Terms“) apply to your access and use of the mobile application (the “App“), website (“Site“) and other online products and services (collectively, the ” MoveAdvisor Platform“) of MoveAdvisor.
Accepting these Terms
BY DOWNLOADING THE APP OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OR USING THE MOVEADVISOR PLATFORM, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS BELOW. Please read all of the terms before you use the MoveAdvisor Platform. If a term does not make sense to you, please let us know. If you don’t agree to all of the terms below, you may not use the MoveAdvisor Platform.
We reserve the right to change these Terms from time to time. For example, we may need to change these Terms if we come out with a new feature. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we will provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you an email notification). We encourage you to review these Terms periodically to stay informed about our practices.
Whenever we make changes to these Terms, they are effective when the revised Terms are posted unless we notify you otherwise. If you continue to use the MoveAdvisor Platform after the revised Terms have been posted, then you will be deemed to have accepted the changes to these Terms.
Description of the MoveAdvisor Platform
Through the MoveAdvisor Platform, you can submit a request (a “Request“) for a Mover to pick up the item(s) you specify (each, an “Item“) for loading, unloading, moving, hauling, packing, lifting, assembly or disassembly (the “Services“). You will receive price quote for the fee that will apply to completing your Request (the “Services Fee“). Once you submit your information for the Quote, your Request will be sent out to our network of Movers. You will receive a communication from Movers, and you will be able to communicate with that Mover through the MoveAdvisor Platform to confirm and coordinate certain logistics involved with completing your Request.
You represent and warrant that the Items related to any Request are your personal property and you have all right, title and permission to request and allow the loading, unloading, moving, packing, or lifting of any Items, and that the performance of the Services by a Mover will not result in the violation of any third party’s ownership or privacy rights.
When you create an account you must maintain the security of your password and accept all risk that someone may access your account without your permission. If you discover or suspect any MoveAdvisor Platform security breaches, please let us know as soon as possible. You represent and warrant to us that all information that you provide in connection with your account is accurate, truthful, current and complete. MoveAdvisor reserves the right to deny any account at our discretion.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE DISCLAIM AND EXCLUDE ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, AND REPRESENTATIONS (EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ORAL OR WRITTEN), AND ALL OTHER TERMS WHICH MAY BE IMPLIED INTO THESE TERMS BY LAW, WITH RESPECT TO THE MOVEADVISOR PLATFORM AND CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE MOVEADVISOR PLATFORM (INCLUDING REQUESTS) AND THE SERVICES PERFORMED BY MOVERS.

TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL MOVEADVISOR BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROPERTY, PHYSICAL LOSSES, DEATH OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES OR LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, THE MOVEADVISOR PLATFORM (INCLUDING THE APP AND ANY REQUEST), SERVICES PERFORMED BY MOVERS, AND/OR THIRD-PARTY SERVICES OR MATERIALS, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), PRODUCT LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY) AND EVEN IF MOVEADVISOR 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 LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT EXCLUDED UNDER THESE TERMS, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF MOVEADVISOR AND ITS DIRECTOR, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AFFILIATES AND INVESTORS WILL NOT EXCEED THE FEE TO DOWNLOAD THE APP (IF ANY) AS OPPOSED TO ANY OTHER FEES/COSTS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY FEES ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR DEVICE.

Third Party Software
The software you download consists of a package of components, including certain third party software provided under separate third party license terms. Your use of this third party software in conjunction with the App in a manner consistent with the terms of these Terms is permitted, however, you may have broader rights under the applicable third-party license terms, and nothing in these Terms is intended to impose further restrictions on your use of this third-party software.
Changes to the MoveAdvisor Platform

MoveAdvisor may suspend or terminate your rights to access or use the MoveAdvisor Platform (including the App) for any reason or for no reason at all and with or without notice at MoveAdvisor’s discretion. Suspension or termination may include restricting access to and use of the App. All of the terms of these Terms (excluding the license grant) will survive any termination or suspension.
Enforcement of these Terms is solely at MoveAdvisor’s discretion. Failure to enforce any part of these Terms in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce the same or other part of these Terms in other instances. If any provision of these Terms is or becomes unlawful, void or otherwise unenforceable (including the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations above), then that provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will continue in full force and effect. The section headings of these Terms are for reference purposes only and will not affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.
These Terms (and the other policies and terms referred to above) make up the entire agreement between you and us regarding the MoveAdvisor Platform and the Services, and they supersede any prior agreements that may have been made.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
