All goods are supplied by us subject to these Conditions, which supersede any earlier sets of Conditions and which shall override any terms of conditions stipulated, incorporated or referred to by the Buyer whether in the order or in any negotiations. The relaxation or waiver by us of any of these Conditions on any occasion shall act merely as a waiver on that occasion and shall not affect our right to enforce any of these Conditions on any subsequent occasion. Any variation of these Conditions must be confirmed in writing by us and will not otherwise be valid. Any description given by us of the goods other than the Agreed Specification is given by way of identification only and the use of such description shall not constitute a contract of sale by description.
Quotations represent no obligation until we accept the Buyer’s order. Prices are quoted ex-works. Prices may be quoted in foreign currency, where this is the case and agreed exchange rate will be used, if the exchange rate differs by more than plus or minus 2% at the date of invoice then the resulting difference in price will be taken into account upon invoicing. Packing, delivery and insurance are charged extra and prices do not include VAT. No discounts shall apply unless previously agreed by us in writing.
Payment is to be made 30 days from date of invoice under the terms of an irrevocable letter of credit to be provided by Royal Bank of Scotland plc Without prejudice to our other rights, interest at 4% above Lloyds TSB Bank Plc base rate shall be payable on any payment which is overdue until actual payment. Notwithstanding any statement to the contrary by the Buyer, we shall be entitled in our absolute discretion to appropriate any payment received by us from the Buyer to or towards any indebtedness of the Buyer with us, whether under this or under any other contract.
4. RE-SCHEDULING OF ORDERS
The order includes an indicative schedule of delivery dates. Deliveries scheduled for the first three months following the acceptance of the Buyer’s order (the “Order Date”)may be re-scheduled only with our specific written agreement, and will require written notice of any required re-scheduling. Any stockholding costs incurred as a result of any re-scheduling will be payable to us by the Buyer.
Goods scheduled for delivery more than three months after the Order Date may be called off at the absolute discretion of Buyer at any time between three months and twelve months after the Order Date. In any event the buyer agrees to take delivery of the full order quantity within 15 months of the order date.
5. CANCELLATION AND RETURNS
In the event of the cancellation of an order we reserve the right without prejudice to charge up to 100% for stock held by us pending shipment, up to 100% for items which we cannot cancel delivery from our supplier and up to 50% for the remaining balance. In particular, (but without limitation), in the event of cancellation by the Buyer of part only of an order, other than as a result of failure by us to meet an estimated time for delivery (defined as being 4 weeks later than estimated), we shall be entitled to recalculate the price for the non-cancelled part of the order as if it constituted the whole order, and to re-invoice the Buyer accordingly.
No returns will be permitted without our prior consent in writing and must be returned at the Buyer’s expense in original condition and the original packaging. Only complete pack quantities will be accepted. If we agree to accept a return other than in the event of defective goods, the Buyer will be charged a handling charge of 20% of invoice value, plus VAT.
Any time or date quoted by us for delivery is given and intended as an estimate only. Whilst every endeavour will be made to meet an estimated time for delivery, we shall not be liable to make good any damage or loss whether arising directly or indirectly out of delay in delivery other than a failure to complete the order within [twelve] months of the first date of the dispatch of goods. We reserve the right to deliver by instalments against any order. Non-delivery must be reported in writing to us and to the carriers on the later of 10 days from the estimated date of delivery based on shipping method employed and the date of despatch or date of advice from the carrier that the shipment is lost or is otherwise not expected to arrive.
Where we tender delivery in accordance with the contract and the Buyer either refusing to accept delivery at that time or subsequently returns the goods without good cause he shall be deemed to be in breach of the contract and we shall be entitled to treat the order or any relevant part of it as cancelled by the Buyer (without prejudice to any other rights we may have).
When delivery is delayed for reasons attributable to the Buyer or his Agents, storage and other additional costs will be charged to the Buyer and the goods will be at the Buyer’s risk from the commencement of such delay. We reserve the right to invoice the goods at the original delivery date. Buyers outside the UK are responsible at their own expense for obtaining any import licence required in the country for which the goods are destined.
We will replace free of charge goods damaged or lost in transit provided the Buyer gives us written notification of such damage or loss within 10 days of receipt of goods by Buyer and time shall be of the essence.
When the Buyer examines the goods before delivery is affected, he shall have no further right to inspect on arrival other than to notify us of any loss or damage in transit. When the goods are delivered to the Buyer without any previous examination by him, he shall inspect them on receipt and within 14 days of such receipt of goods by Buyer shall give written notice to us of any matter or thing by reason of which he may allege that the goods are not in accordance with the contract or the Agreed Specification. If the Buyer shall fail to give such notice the goods shall be deemed to be in all respects in accordance with the contract and the Buyer shall be bound to accept and pay for them accordingly.
Until the Buyer makes payment in full for the goods, he shall at all times keep them in his possession and control and shall not remove them from the United Kingdom without our consent and will not sell or otherwise dispose of or deal with the goods. Legal and equitable ownership of the goods remain with us, notwithstanding delivery thereof to the Buyer, until we have received in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the price of the goods and all other goods agreed to be sold by us to the Buyer for which payment is due. Until such time the Buyer shall have possession of the goods as our Bailee we will permit the Buyer to sell the goods in the ordinary course of business (either separately or as part of constructed products), but in that event the proceeds of sale thereof will be held by the Buyer as our Trustee to the extent of the Buyer’s indebtedness to us. Pending any such sale the Buyer will be obliged to keep the goods separate from his own goods until property therein passes to the Buyer.
10. PASSING OF RISK
Notwithstanding that ownership of the same may remain with us, as from the time of the delivery of the goods to the Buyer the risk of any loss or damage of the goods from whatever cause arising shall be borne by the Buyer.
11. MARKS AND NUMBERS
The Buyer shall not remove or otherwise interfere with the marks or numbers on any goods supplied by us.
If the Buyer makes default in any payment on the due date (time being of the essence) or is otherwise in breach of any of these terms, or if (being an individual) he commits an act of bankruptcy or has a receiving order made against him or (being a company) enters into liquidation (whether compulsory or voluntary) or has a receiver or manager appointed to the whole or any part of its business or undertaking, or if distress or execution is levied or threatened upon any of the Buyer’s property, then in any such case (and without prejudice to any other rights we have):-
- we shall be entitled to repossess any unused goods (uninstalled) and re-sell goods delivered to the Buyer and not paid for in full and for that purpose to enter upon the property in which they are situated.
- we shall be entitled to suspend all further deliveries to the Buyers until the default is made good or to refuse to deliver any further goods to the Buyer and to re-sell any further goods ordered by the Buyer whether they are the balance of an order or the whole part of a further order.
