Driver Terms & Conditions
These Terms & Conditions (together with the documents referred to in them) govern your use of our website at www.cargurufix.com and all related sites, services, applications, and tools, which we operate from time to time (the “CGF Service”).
These Terms & Conditions apply to any person registering as a “driver” on the CGF Service, or using the CGF Service as a driver (a “Driver”). If you are registering to use the CGF Service as a mechanic, or you are using the CGF Service as a mechanic (a “Mechanic”) please refer to our Mechanic Terms & Conditions.
By using the CGF Service you confirm that you accept these Terms & Conditions and that you agree to abide by them.
REGISTERING AS A DRIVER
In order to benefit from all the features of the CGF Service available to Drivers you will need to register with us as a Driver by following the online prompts. You will be asked to provide certain information about yourself including your name, telephone number and email address.
You must ensure that the information provided by you on registration is correct, complete and not misleading. You should also inform us promptly of any changes to the information that you have provided, by updating your details, so we can communicate with you effectively.
PROVISION OF SERVICES TO DRIVERS
Following registration, we will make certain services available to you free-of-charge. The services will include the ability to post details of any automotive repair or servicing work you need a Mechanic to do for you (a “Job”), the ability to receive quotes from Mechanics to Jobs you have posted (“Quotes”) and the ability to post feedback in relation to any Mechanic you have used as a result of your use of the CGF Service (“Feedback”).
You must only post a Job if you have a genuine requirement for the work detailed in the Job to be performed. You must only post Feedback in relation to a Mechanic if you have used them as a result of your use of the CGF Service. In addition, you must ensure that the content of any Job or Feedback you post complies with the provisions of our Acceptable Use Policy set out in Section 8 below.
If you do decide to use the services of a particular Mechanic as a result of your use of the CGF Service, you agree to notify us by updating your Job details accordingly. You can do this by clicking the relevant button on your Job page to "accept" or "confirm" their Quote.
Full details of the services available to Drivers will be published on www.cargurufix.com from time to time. We are continually seeking to develop and improve the services we offer and so we reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to make changes to any part of the service without notice.
OUR RESPONSIBILITIES TO YOU
We will provide the CGF Service to you using reasonable skill and care and in accordance with these Terms & Conditions. However, if you use the CGF Service as a Driver you acknowledge and agree that the services we provide are subject to the following limitations and disclaimers:
Although we have asked all users to use the CGF Service responsibly, we cannot guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of any information you view or receive via the CGF Service, which is provided by, or based on information submitted by, third parties. This includes any information contained in the details of Mechanics who are listed in our directory (“Listings”) as well as any Quotes you may receive from Mechanics.
If you use the CGF Service, you acknowledge and agree that we do not endorse or recommend any of the Mechanics who are listed or who use the CGF Service and we do not check or verify all the information which Mechanics post on or transmit via the CGF Service. You shall be solely responsible for checking and verifying any information which you access via or receive via the CGF Service before acting on it placing any reliance on it. If you choose to use the services of any particular Mechanic because of information you have received through your use of the CGF Services you do so entirely at your own risk.
If you use the CGF Service, you also acknowledge and agree that information contained in any Quotes for Jobs you have posted are intended to be indicative only and will not form the basis of a binding contract between you and any Mechanic. This is the case even if you "accept" or "confirm" the Quote by clicking the relevant button on the CGF Service. If you choose to instruct a Mechanic to carry out any work for you as a result of your use of the CGF Service, we strongly recommend that you conclude your own written agreement with them clearly detailing the work to be done and the price to be paid. We will not be a party to any agreement or contract which you conclude with a Mechanic as a result of your use of the CGF Service. Further information about how Quotes are formulated and their status is set out in Section 5 below.
PLEASE NOTE: We (Cargurufix.com) will not under any circumstances have any responsibility to you, or liability to you, for the performance or quality of any work which you ask any Mechanic to carry out, or for any acts or omissions on the part of any Mechanic. Mechanics will at all times remain solely responsible to you for the work they undertake and their own acts and omissions.
STATUS OF QUOTES
When you post a Job on the CGF Service you will receive Quotes from Mechanics based on the information you have provided, including your vehicle make and model and job type ("Job Criteria"). The Quotes you receive will either be standard Quotes or "SmartQuotes". All "SmartQuotes" will be clearly identified as such, with the SmartQuote icon.
Standard Quotes are generated where a Mechanic has either prepared a Quote in direct response to your Job, or previously provided a Quote which matches your specific Job Criteria, or has otherwise provided us with information about what they would quote for your specific Job Criteria.
SmartQuotes are generated where we do not hold quoting data for a Mechanic which is an exact match for your Job Criteria. In these cases our SmartQuotes software uses the quoting data we do hold for a Mechanic, as well as algorithms we have developed, to predict what the Mechanic is likely to quote for the Job. PLEASE NOTE: All Quotes (including both standard Quotes and SmartQuotes) provided via the CGF Service are indicative only and are subject to refinement or change by Mechanics before they commit to undertake any work. Whilst we work closely with Mechanics and continually seek to improve our systems and processes to ensure that Quotes are as accurate as possible, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of Quote or that at a Mechanic will ultimately be able to able to complete your Job for a Quoted price. We recommend that you seek confirmation of a Quote direct from a Mechanic, before you instruct them to undertake your Job.
THIRD PARTY/ ANCILLARY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
From time to time we may offer, promote or make available via the CGF Service, certain ancillary products and services offered by us (such as roadside assistance policies) ("Ancillary Products") and/ or products and services offered by third parties (such as repair finance) ("Third Party Products").
If you choose to purchase any such Ancillary Products or Third Party Products, you understand and agree that they will be subject to a separate agreement and terms and conditions, details of which will be provided to you as part of the purchase process.
