How CarBuckets Works with Dealerships.

 

CarBuckets is a service which allows licensed automotive dealerships to offer group buying discounts to CarBuckets" Users in connection with the purchase or lease of a Vehicle. Please review the CarBuckets Consumer Terms of Use for more information.

Registration with the Service. 

 

If you would like to register to participate in the Service as a CarBuckets Dealership, you will first be asked your Dealership name and you will also need to provide certain information to let us know who to contact at your Dealership. You may fill out a request form by clicking here. Once we process your registration information, a CarBuckets representative will contact you to discuss your enrollment in the Service. If the Service is not available in your area, we will notify you once a CarBuckets representative reaches out. Upon your registration with CarBuckets, execution of the CarBuckets Dealership Agreement, you will be granted access to your own Dealership Account on the Site ("Dealership Account").

 

CarBuckets Dealership Agreement. 

 

In addition to the registration process described above, in order to participate in the Service, you will need to enter into a separate agreement with us which will set forth additional terms and conditions that will be applicable to your participation in the Service (the "CarBuckets Dealership Agreement").  The CarBuckets Dealership Agreement will be provided to you by a CarBuckets sales representative following your initial registration and will set forth all fees and payment terms and other additional terms that will be applicable to your participation in the Service.  You will only become an authorized CarBuckets Dealership upon execution by both your Dealership and CarBuckets of the applicable CarBuckets Dealership Agreement. Dealerships also expressly agree to be bound by our Dealership Code of Conduct, a copy of which is attached and incorporated into our Dealership Agreement. If any of the terms and conditions of the applicable CarBuckets Dealership Agreement are inconsistent with the terms of these Terms of Use, the terms of the CarBuckets Dealership Agreement will control.  You have no obligation to enter into a CarBuckets Dealership Agreement; however, if you elect not to enter into a CarBuckets Dealership Agreement, you will not be able to participate in the Service nor will you be granted access to a Dealership Account.

 

Two-Round Bidding Process. 

 

Following your execution of the CarBuckets Dealership Agreement, you will be eligible to participate in the CarBuckets bidding process. Prior to the commencement of the bidding process, we will collect information from registered Users of the Service about their location and requested Vehicle brand. Each User"s location and requested Vehicle brand will then be compared with information provided by other Users of the Service. If there are other Users in the same location with the same requested Vehicle brand they will be placed together in a "CarBucket".  If your Dealership offers the Vehicle brand that has been requested by the Users in the applicable CarBucket, and the CarBucket is "activated", we will notify you and invite you to be part of the bidding process for the applicable CarBucket. The bidding process will include two rounds of bidding.  As part of the first round of bidding we will provide you with the requested year, brand, model, transmission and two (2) color options of each Vehicle in the CarBucket. Dealerships will be able to select the Trim for each Vehicle, you will be required to provide a total out-the-door price for each Vehicle in the CarBucket (excluding tax, tag and title) ("First Bidding Round").  We will then compare your bid with the bids of other CarBuckets Dealerships participating in bidding on that CarBucket and, if your Dealership is one of the two CarBuckets Dealerships offering the lowest total price on that CarBucket, we will notify you via email and/or text message that you have won the first round of the bidding process. If you have not submitted a winning bid, we will send you a notice stating that your bid was not low enough.  If you have submitted one of the two winning bids during the first round of bidding, you will be asked to participate in the final round of bidding and will again be asked to provide a CarBuckets price for each Vehicle in the CarBucket ("Second Bidding Round"). Dealerships cannot raise the price of any Vehicle greater than their bid in the first round of the bidding process. If you do not submit a bid before the close of the Second Bidding Round, your bid from the First Bidding Round will be used again for your second-round bid. If the total price offered in your second bid for that CarBucket are lower than the price offered by the other CarBuckets Dealership participating in the second round, you will win the bidding process ("Winning Bid").  CarBuckets will only share the identity of your Dealership and the pricing offered by your Dealership to Users of the Service who are part of a CarBucket for which you are the winning Dealership and will not share the identity of your Dealership, or the pricing offered by your Dealership, with other CarBuckets Dealerships. Users will only be able to see the Final Price for the Vehicle that they selected and not the Total Bid Amount for the CarBucket, as further defined in the Dealership Agreement.

CarBuckets Test Drive Dates.

 

If your Dealership wins the final round of the bidding, Users will be required to visit your Dealership for a test drive ("CarBuckets Test Drive"). You may modify your appointment preferences prior to any bidding round to adjust the dates and times when Users can visit your Dealership and test drive the vehicles you have identified as part of your winning bid (the "CarBuckets Test Drive Dates").  The CarBuckets Test Drive Dates must be within five (5) days following the date on which your Dealership wins the applicable CarBucket, and there must be a sufficient number of time slots and available sales associates to accommodate the number of Users that are part of the applicable CarBucket. CarBuckets allows Dealerships to set the Test Drive Dates at their commercially reasonable discretion during the registration process and from time to time thereafter.

 

Confirmation Receipt.

 

In order to confirm that Users visit your car Dealership during the CarBuckets Test Drive Dates, the Dealership must access your Dealership Account to generate a CarBuckets Test Drive confirmation receipt, which can either be emailed to the User or printed at the Dealership and given to the User. Users who do not visit the Dealership within the specified time frame will be charged a $50.00 No-Show Fee. You will not be eligible to receive any fees or compensation for a User"s failure to take their Test and you will not have any recourse against a User or CarBuckets for any such failure. For each CarBuckets Test Drive taken by a User, you will be required to pay CarBuckets the fees and other compensation set forth in the CarBuckets Dealership Agreement amongst other charges.

 

No Guarantee of Purchase. 

 

We cannot and do not guarantee that any CarBucket will be "activated" or that you will be invited to participate in any particular CarBucket.  Further, if you win a CarBuckets bidding process, we cannot and do not guarantee that any Users who are part of the applicable CarBucket will purchase or lease a Vehicle from your Dealership.  You will not be eligible to receive any fees or other compensation for a User"s failure to purchase a Vehicle and you will not have any recourse against a User or CarBuckets for any such failure.

Arbitration Agreement and Waiver of Class Remedies

 

Arbitration. 

 

For purposes of this Agreement, you and Carbuckets are each a "Party" and collectively, the Parties. The Parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either Party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use (including its formation, performance and breach) and the Service shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the provisions of its User Arbitration Rules, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.  The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Use, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Use is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to determine the arbitrarily of any claim and to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity.  The arbitrator"s award shall be binding on the Parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost.  The exclusive seat or place of jurisdiction shall be Miami-Dade County, Florida.

 

The Parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial.  They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.

 

Class Action Waiver. 

 

The Parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the Parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis.  If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the Parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.

 

Exception - Litigation of Small Claims Court Claims. 

 

Notwithstanding the Parties" decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either Party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court"s jurisdiction. 

 

Thirty Day Right to Opt Out. 

 

You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth this Section by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: CarBuckets, 2200 NW 2nd Avenue, Unit 104, Miami, FL 33127.  Attention: Accounts Department. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of registering to use the Service, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms set forth above.  If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them. In addition, if you elect to opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we may terminate your use of the Service.
