The Customer is required to use the GPX Shipping Labels generated through Customer’s use of the Website and the GPX Bills of Lading.

Payment is due from Customer at the time the Order is placed, and payment must be made by Customer using a credit, debit, or other payment card accepted by Busfreighter.com before an Order is processed. Customer agrees that Customer is responsible for all charges payable, including any adjustments as provided herein, on the Website, and/or in the purchase agreement presented with Order approval, on account of such Customer’s Order, and Customer authorizes Busfreighter.com to debit all such charges to the payment card account provided by Customer. If the actual characteristics of the shipment ordered are different than that provided by Customer when the Order was placed and/or results in additional charges or adjustments, including those charges set forth on the Website as Busfreighter Accessorial Rates, an email will be sent to the Customer notifying Customer of such charges and adjustments, and such charges and adjustments, if any, will be debited/charged to the payment card account provided by Customer within 24 hours after the email notification is sent.

If Customer does not provide such written dispute notice within this period, such charges are deemed valid and Customer agrees that Customer is forever barred from bringing a claim regarding such charge(s). A timely written dispute notice is a condition precedent to Customer’s assertion of a claim against Busfreighter.com.
Lien and Storage Charges. If the Customer’s payment card is declined for any charges for the Order, including additional charges or adjustments, your Order is put on hold until a successful authorization is obtained or payment is otherwise made.
