4 SHIPPING TERMS AND RESTRICTIONS
4.1 Carriers and Network Locations. To help provide the Services, ShipHawk has selected and engaged third party carriers (each, an “Approved Carrier”), retail packing and shipping stores (each, a “Network Location”) and other third party providers including customs brokers and agents (the Approved Carriers, Network Locations and other third parties, collectively, the “Third Party Providers”) as required to pick up, pack, transport, store and deliver your items. ShipHawk may identify certain Approved Carriers as its “preferred” carriers (each a “Preferred Carrier”). The Third Party Providers used to provide the Services to you are independent third party service providers, and are not agents of ShipHawk. You may be required to enter into agreements with one or more Third Party Provider with respect to your use of their services through the Services. Your items will be entrusted to such Third Party Providers, subject to all conditions as to limitation of liability for loss, damage, expense or delay and to all rules, regulations, requirements and conditions, whether printed, written or stamped appearing in bills of lading, receipts or tariffs issued by such Third Party Providers. ShipHawk’s price quote is based on Carrier tariffs, which the Carrier may make available for public inspection upon a reasonable request. ShipHawk is not a Third Party Provider.
4.2 Item and Shipment Value. ShipHawk may request the value of your items for the purpose of providing you options for adding insurance or declaring a value to the transporting carrier. Under no circumstances shall a value provided to ShipHawk increase ShipHawk’s liability above the maximum limitation as described in Section 11 (Limitation of Liability). Carrier limits of liability may also apply, and may be substantially lower than the value of your shipment. Unless you receive specific confirmation of an issued insurance policy, no insurance has been, or will be effected by ShipHawk, and ShipHawk shall not be responsible for your failure to purchase insurance for your shipment. SHIPHAWK STRONGLY ENCOURAGES YOU TO PURCHASE INSURANCE TO COVER ANY AND ALL POSSIBLE DAMAGE OR LOSS TO YOUR ITEMS DURING PACKING, SHIPMENT AND DELIVERY. INSURANCE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR SELF-PACKED ITEMS. All insurances effected are subject to the usual exceptions and conditions of the policies of the insurance company or underwriters taking the risk. Examples of these limitations include, but are not limited to, failure to indicate item value at the time of booking, failure to note damage on delivery receipt at the time of delivery, failure to provide documentation verifying item value, failure to provide written notice to ShipHawk within 24 hours of delivery, failure to provide requested claim information within 48 hours of ShipHawk request, if requested by ShipHawk, and improper self-packing. You acknowledge that all insurances effected are agreed to be adequate. Shipment value must be determined prior to shipping. Regardless whether or not insurance is purchased, we are under no obligation to effect a separate insurance on each consignment, but may declare it on any open or general policy held by ShipHawk.
4.3 Claims. ShipHawk will provide commercially reasonable assistance to you in investigating and processing any claims for loss or damage to your property from pickup to delivery, provided that you notify us within 24 hours after delivery. If your shipment is insured, the underwriter may require notification in as little as twenty-four (24) hours after delivery. All claims are subject to limitations of liability as defined in the Carmack Amendment, 49 U.S.C. 14706 and in specific carrier Tariffs. Filing a claim does not remove your obligation to pay for all shipping charges incurred or to accept delivery of the shipped items. Packing and shipping charges cannot be refunded due to damage. ShipHawk cannot provide assistance for claims processing where damage is not noted on the delivery receipt at the time of delivery, when item value is not declared at the time of booking, or when packing services and materials are not purchased through ShipHawk.
4.4 Accuracy of Quotations on ShipHawk Tariffs. The Services includes instant, automated price quotes on ShipHawk Tariffs for shipping your items, based on information provided by you such as the item type, weight, and dimensions. If your actual items are materially different from the items as described, ShipHawk will charge you, and you agree to pay, for any additional services at ShipHawk’s then-current standard rates. ShipHawk also reserves the right to correct any price or estimate provided to you if it is deemed unreasonable in ShipHawk’s sole discretion. If this is necessary, ShipHawk will notify you and you may choose whether to proceed at the revised price, or receive a full refund.
4.5 Accessorial Charges. ShipHawk will charge you at ShipHawk’s current rates, and you agree to pay, for any accessorial charges not specifically requested at the time of initial quotation and billed by applied by carriers. By way of example only, these charges may include residential delivery, limited access, lift gate, inside delivery, dry-run, waiting time, storage, and similar charges.
4.6 Detention. ShipHawk will charge you at ShipHawk’s current rates, and you agree to pay, for any applicable detention fees if your shipment is detained for any reason, while en route, or at the origin or destination.
4.7 Returned Shipments and Storage. Returned small parcel shipments will be held for seven (7) calendar days without charge. Freight shipments are not eligible for any grace period. ShipHawk, and the Third Party Provider storing the goods, will make reasonable efforts to contact the sender and arrange for re-shipment, local delivery, additional storage or other accommodations requested by the sender. The sender agrees to accept any such re-shipment upon delivery thereof, and is responsible for all associated charges (including storage fees) in addition to the original fees. Returned shipments are not eligible for reimbursement for any reason and may accrue additional fees in addition to the storage fees mentioned below. If ShipHawk is unable to reach the sender or collect the returned shipping charges or storage fees, the goods may be sold in accordance with the laws of the origin state.
4.8 Minimum Storage Charges. The following minimum storage charges apply:
Pallets - $50 receiving + $50 placement + $25/day storage (There is no grace period for returned pallets.)
Boxes - $10 receiving + $10 placement + $2.50/day storage – (There is a 7 day grace period)
4.9 Payment. In addition to any fees that may be due for shipping, certain aspects of the Services may be provided on a subscription basis for additional fees or other charges. If you elect to use these paid subscription aspects of the Services, you agree to ShipHawk’s Pricing and Payment Terms www.shiphawk.com/payment, which ShipHawk may update from time to time in its sole discretion. ShipHawk may add new services for additional fees and charges and add or amend fees and charges for existing Services, at any time at its sole discretion. Any change to the Pricing or Payment Terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in these Terms. You will have the opportunity to opt-out of the service prior to any changes in Pricing or Payment Terms.
Any amounts due will be automatically charged to your credit card on file.

If ShipHawk is unable to bill your card, any unpaid amounts due to ShipHawk will accrue interest at the lesser of one-and-one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum permitted by law. If ShipHawk retains an attorney or collection agency to collect unpaid charges, such unpaid charges will be subject to a late payment penalty of twenty percent (20%), and you will be responsible for all attorney and collection fees and expenses. Further, you agree that ShipHawk shall have a lien on all tangible property in the shipment for all sums due to us.
4.10 Contract Carriers. ShipHawk will make reasonable efforts to place your shipment with responsible carriers, with reasonable dispatch under your direction. However, you agree that ShipHawk makes no express or implied warranties or guarantees concerning pickup or delivery time or the locating of a carrier to provide such transportation services.
4.11 International Services. You are responsible to ensure that your shipment is acceptable for entry into the destination country. All charges for shipment to and return from countries where entry is not permitted are your responsibility.
4.12 Duties; Taxes. Duties and taxes will be billed to the recipient as a default option. However, you are ultimately responsible for all duties, taxes, return shipping fees, storage fees, or any other related charges, regardless of whether the recipient refuses the package, the duties are billed incorrectly, the package arrives late due to customs delays, or any other reason. Destroying the package at the destination is not an option and failed delivery attempts will result in the package being stored and/or returned at your expense. Return shipping charges may be higher than outgoing shipping charges.

Examples of these goods include, but are not limited to, radioactive, flammable, explosive, corrosive, oxidizing, asphyxiating, biohazardous, toxic, pathogenic, and allergenic items.
