This document makes up our Terms and Conditions (“Terms” or “Agreement”). The Terms are a legally binding contract between you (“you”, or the “Subscriber”) and Nexus Dealer Portal, LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“Nexus Portal”). This contract sets out your rights and responsibilities when you use https://app.nexusdealerportal.com/ (“Website”) and when you use the Subscription Services (defined below). Please read these Terms carefully. By signing up and subscribing with Nexus Portal or by accessing or using the Subscription Services, you are accepting this Agreement, on behalf of yourself or the company, entity or organization that you represent, and you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this Agreement, on behalf of yourself or the company, entity or organization that you represent. You may not access or use the Subscription Services or accept this Agreement if you are not at least 18 years old. Please read this Agreement carefully before using the Subscription Services. Use of the Subscription Services is conditioned on your agreement to all of the terms and conditions contained in the Agreement, including the policies and terms linked to or otherwise referenced in the Agreement, all of which are hereby incorporated into the Agreement.

IF YOU DO NOT SO AGREE, YOU SHOULD DECLINE THIS AGREEMENT, IN WHICH CASE YOU ARE PROHIBITED FROM ACCESSING OR USING THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES OR WEBSITE.

CHANGES

Nexus Portal may amend the Terms at any time by providing you with a revised version. The revised version will be effective at the time you receive the revised version. 

DEFINITIONS

  1. A “Lead” is a posting with the name and address of the potential car buyer or seller, and Vehicle (defined below) description.
  2. A “Broker” is a federally licensed freight company granted authority by the federal motor carrier safety administration. For purposes of this agreement, Nexus AT LLC, an Illinois limited liability company, shall be the only Broker involved.
  3. A “Vehicle” is the motor vehicle detailed in the Lead.
  4. A “Deal” is when Vehicle owner or buyer accepts the terms of your offer for the Lead.
  5. A “Lead Contact” is the individual associated with a specific Lead.
  6. “Subscriber Content” means any and all information, data, textual, audio, and/or visual content, commentary and feedback related to the Subscription Services (defined below), ratings, reviews, and other content that any Subscriber submits to, or uses with, the Subscription Services.

SERVICES

Nexus Portal will provide Subscriber access to a calculator that will estimate the cost of shipping a vehicle in the United States (the “Cost Calculator”).

Nexus Portal also grants Subscriber access to a list of Leads throughout the United States (“Lead List”). If Subscriber finds a Lead to pursue, Subscriber can use the posted contact information for the Lead Contact to directly communicate, through phone or email, an offer of terms for the Vehicle. If the offer is accepted by the Lead Contact, a Deal is formed.

Once a Deal is formed, Nexus Portal will present to Subscriber a third-party Broker who has the capabilities to find a carrier who will take care of the actual shipment of the Vehicle (“Broker Access”). Subscriber is under no obligation to use the Broker that Nexus Portal presents to Subscriber, and any relationship between Broker and Subscriber is not governed by these Terms, and instead is governed by a separate set of terms and conditions between Subscriber and Broker.

    Additionally, Subscriber may utilize the Website to monitor Subscriber’s account history (“CRM Services”). CRM Services allow Subscriber to search all of Subscriber’s previous offers to Lead Contacts. The offer history further provides Subscriber with a record of which of Subscriber’s offers turned into Deals. Furthermore, CRM Services can be used by Subscriber to monitor the current status of Subscriber’s active Deals.

    The Cost Calculator, Lead List, Broker Access, and CRM Services (collectively, the “Subscription Services”) shall constitute the entirety of Nexus Portal’s services to Subscriber.

      Nexus Portal is acting as a Lead posting board and offer facilitator. Nexus Portal’s involvement is limited to posting Leads, providing Subscribers access to a third-party Broker, and providing basic communication and Deal tracking to Subscribers. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to mean Nexus Portal is subcontracting work to the Broker. Nexus Portal is a neutral platform. Nexus Portal is not a transportation service provider, shipper, or broker. Nexus Portal is not involved in the actual transaction Subscriber enters regarding the Lead. Nexus Portal does not examine or review any Vehicle that is listed in a Lead, and makes no guarantees as to the accuracy of any Lead. Furthermore, Nexus Portal is not responsible for moving any Vehicle nor will Nexus Portal take possession of any Vehicle.
