Terms and Conditions of Sale


Prices

All prices quoted are to be regarded as firm for the validity period stated. When Seller does not quote firm prices, goods will be invoiced at price ruling at date of despatch. Unit prices include only standard packing in cartons but do not include any specialist packing cases / wood crates, etc. Carriage charges are quoted extra.

Terms of Payment

Invoices will be rendered when the goods are despatched, or held ready for despatch if held at the Buyers request, and are payable forthwith.

At any time before the delivery of the goods, the Seller may notify the Buyer that payment is required prior to such delivery and the Seller shall be entitled to withhold delivery until payment is made.

If the buyer shall fail to pay the Seller any monies due to the Seller, the Seller shall be entitled to withhold delivery of any goods due to be delivered to the Buyer under this or any other contract with the Buyer.

Unless otherwise agreed amounts are strictly net and for approved credit accounts, payment in full shall be due within the calendar month following despatch or goods held at Buyers request, and in no case, shall payment be later than 60 days from date of despatch or client notified of readiness.

Delivery

Notwithstanding that the time for delivery has been mentioned orally or in writing, the time of delivery shall not be of essence to the contract. The time for delivery shall be extended by a reasonable period if delay in delivery is caused by instructions or lack of instructions by the Buyer or by industrial dispute or by any cause beyond our reasonable control. We also reserve the right to deliver goods earlier than acknowledged by us, unless advised to the contrary by the Buyer.
