the PckitUp Platform
The PckitUp Platform is a technology-mediated marketplace for urban consumers (customers), their
household trash and recyclables and independent haulers/drivers (agents). agents and customers are collectively referred to herein as “users,” and the collection services provided by agents to customers shall be referred to herein as collection services. as a user, you authorize PckitUp to match you with an agent or customer based on factors such as your location, the estimated time to collect, user preferences, and platform efficiency, and to cancel an existing match and rematch based on the same considerations. Any decision by a User to offer or accept collection services is a decision made in such user’s sole discretion.
modification of the agreement
PckitUp reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of this agreement, and such modifications
shall be binding on you only upon your acceptance of the modified agreement. PckitUp reserves the right to
modify any information on pages referenced in the hyperlinks from this agreement, and such modifications shall become effective upon posting. continued utilization of the PckitUp Platform or collection services after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. unless material changes are made to the arbitration provisions herein, you agree that modification of this agreement does not create a renewed opportunity to opt out of arbitration.
The PckitUp Platform may only be used by individuals who have the right and authority to enter into this
agreement, and are fully able and competent to satisfy the terms, conditions, and obligations herein. the PckitUp Platform is not available to users who have had their user account temporarily or permanently deactivated. you may not allow other persons to use your user account, and you agree that you are the sole authorized user of your account. to use the PckitUp Platform, each user shall create a user account. each person may only create one user account, and PckitUp reserves the right to deactivate any additional or duplicate accounts. by becoming a user, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old.
as a customer, you understand that request or use of collection services may result in charges to you (“charges”) as set forth on the PckitUp Platform. PckitUp has the authority and reserves the right to determine and to modify pricing by posting applicable pricing terms on the PckitUp Platform. pricing may vary based on the type of service you request as described on the PckitUp Platform. you are responsible for reviewing the applicable price quote within the PckitUp Platform and shall be responsible for all charges incurred under your user account regardless of your awareness of such charges or the amounts thereof.
variable fees. variable fees consist of a base charge and incremental charges based on the size and distance of your collection. for particularly small collections, minimum fees may apply.
quoted fees. in some cases, PckitUp may quote you a fee at the time of your request. the quote is subject to change until the collection request is completed. if you change your collection size/quantity, make changes to the types of waste being collected, or attempt to abuse the PckitUp Platform, we may cancel the fee quote and charge you a variable fee based on the type, size, and quantity of your collection. PckitUp does not guarantee that the quoted fee price will be equal to a variable fee for the same collection. quoted fees may include fees and other charges below, as applicable.
service fee. there may be a service fee as indicated on the PckitUp Platform.
cancellation fee. you may cancel a collection through the app, subject to a cancellation fee.
other charges. other fee and surcharges may apply to your collection, including state or local fees. in addition, where required by law PckitUp will collect applicable taxes. refer to the PckitUp Platform for details on other charges that may apply to your collection.
tips. following a collection, you may elect to tip your agent in cash or through the PckitUp application. any tips will be provided entirely to the applicable agent.
facilitation of charges. all charges are facilitated through a third-party payment processor. PckitUp may replace its third-party payment processor without notice to you. charges to you shall only be made through the PckitUp Platform. excluding tips, cash payments are strictly prohibited. your payment of charges to PckitUp satisfies your payment obligation for your use of the PckitUp Platform and collection services. PckitUp may group multiple charges into a single aggregate transaction on your payment method based on the date(s) they were incurred. if you do not recognize a transaction, then check your collection receipts and payment history.
no refunds. all charges for services rendered are non-refundable. this no-refund policy shall apply regardless of your decision to terminate usage of the PckitUp Platform, any disruption to the PckitUp Platform or collection services, or any other reason.
credit card authorization. upon addition of a new payment method or each collection request, PckitUp may seek authorization of your selected payment method to verify the payment method, ensure the collection cost will be covered, and protect against unauthorized behavior. the authorization is not a charge; however, it may reduce your available credit by the authorization amount until your bank’s next processing cycle. should the amount of our authorization exceed the total funds on deposit in your account, you may be subject to overdraft of NSF charges by the bank issuing your debit or prepaid card. PckitUp cannot be held responsible for these charges and is unable to assist in recovering them from your issuing bank.
if you are an agent, you will receive payment for your provision of collection services pursuant to the terms of the agent agreement, which shall form part of this agreement between you and PckitUp.
by entering into this agreement and/or using the PckitUp Platform, you agree to receive communications from PckitUp, including but not limited to e-mail, text message, calls, and push notifications. you agree that texts, calls or prerecorded messages may be generated by automatic telephone dialing systems. communications from PckitUp, its affiliated companies and/or agents, may include but are not limited to: operational communications concerning your user account or use of the PckitUp Platform or collection services, updates concerning new and existing features on the PckitUp Platform, communications concerning promotions run by PckitUp or our third-party partners, and news concerning PckitUp and industry developments. standard text messaging charges applied by your cell phone carrier will apply to text messages we send.

SIMILARLY, IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF PROMOTIONAL CALLS OR TEXTS, WE WILL PROVIDE THE OPTION (IN THE CALL OR WITHIN THE TEXT) FOR YOU TO DO SO. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO CONSENT TO RECEIVE PROMOTIONAL EMAILS, TEXTS, OR CALLS AS A CONDITION FOR USING THE PCKITUP PLATFORM OR RELATED SERVICES. HOWEVER YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT OPTING OUT OF RECEIVING EMAILS, TEXTS, OR CALLs MAY IMPACT YOUR USE OF THE PCKITUP PLATFORM OR RELATED SERVICES.
