contained completely, within the underside of a vehicle that should require the
vehicle be hoisted on a lift in order to be viewed and identified. The party

exist prior to Carrier’s receipt of the vehicle(s) and that the claim relates
to one for hidden damage and is otherwise proper. Pictures and two (2)
estimates for repair should be sent as soon as possible. All claims are
subject to a Deductible, and will be settled at actual cost.
Shipper agrees that the amount of a claim for a repairable loss shall be
established by a competitive bid process. The amount of the repairable loss
shall be considered the lowest available bid amount from two (2) competing
qualified automobile body repair shops. Alternatively, if a Carrier elects, it
may obtain an appraisal of the amount of the repairable loss from an
independent automobile insurance adjustment company. A qualified body shop
shall include any auto body repair shop owned by a franchised dealer of the
manufacturer of the vehicle for which loss is being claimed. Carrier may, at
its option, elect to accept a single bid presented by the claimant as the most
cost effective settlement available and so elect to accept that bid as the amount
of the claim. The payment by the Carrier of any claim presented by shipper
shall be deemed the full and final resolution of the claim. The shipper shall
release Carrier from any further liability involving that same vehicle upon
payment of the claim.
Carrier’s limit of liability for any total loss vehicle(s) shall be the actual
cost of any verifiable expenses thereon, including Carrier’s freight charges

be responsible for any lost profit.
