Service Professional Pre-Screening Disclaimers and Procedures We make no guarantees of the quality of the service professionals who may contact you. Our partners have their own requirements and may prescreen service professionals as they deem appropriate. Although most service professionals are completely legitimate, licensed, and certified in their trade, there is a chance that certain professionals could slip through the cracks, not have proper business licenses and filings, criminal background records searches, sex offender searches, identity verification such as social security numbers, legal searches for civil judgments, etc. Many of our partners pre-screen for some or all of these things but that screening is typically done at the beginning of verifying the service professional and doesn’t take into account anything that may have occurred negatively for that service professional after the initial screening procedures. Furthermore, for service professionals using Corporate Accounts such as employees, franchisees, dealers, and independent contractors those screening methods can be different or non existent, meaning no screening at all.
You agree and acknowledge that our services offered are provided to you on an “as is” basis with no warranties or guarantees whatsoever, and your exclusive and sole remedy for dissatisfaction of the services we offer or provide is to discontinue using our services.

If any of the provisions of terms and conditions within this agreement shall become deemed unlawful, unenforceable, or void by a court of competent jurisdiction then that provision shall be modified to the extent to make it enforceable while maintaining the spirit of the provision.
