Terms of Trading

1.1 Some of these terms apply to consumers only; some apply to business customers only. Those terms are marked as such.

1.2 All other terms apply to all customers.

1.3 You are classified as a business customer if you indicate to us that the goods supplied by us will be used in the course of your business or if you use the goods in the course of your business.

1.4 If you are not a business customer, you are a consumer. You have certain statutory rights as a consumer which are not affected by these terms. Contact your local trading standards office for more information. Words in italic type are legal words which clarify, rather than alter, the meaning of the relevant clause. If you are a consumer (as defined by the Consumer Transactions (Restrictions on Statements) Order 1976) we recognise that you may have additional rights under statute if we fail to carry out our obligations to you and for the return of defective goods and confirm your statutory rights are not affected by these terms.

2.1 The price quoted excludes VAT (unless otherwise stated). VAT will be charged at the rate applying at the time of delivery.

2.2 Our quotations are not offers, may be withdrawn at any time and lapse after 30 days (unless otherwise stated).

2.3 The price quoted excludes delivery and packaging (unless otherwise stated).

2.4 Business customers:unless otherwise stated, the price quoted to business customers is an illustrative estimate only and the price charged will be our price current at the time of delivery.

2.3 Business customers:rates of tax and duties on the goods will be those applying at the time of delivery.

2.4 Business customers:We may at any time after acceptance of an order, but prior to delivery, revise the price payable for the goods and/or services to take account of increases in costs including, without limitation, costs of any goods or materials, carriage, labour or overheads, the increase or imposition of any tax duty or other levy and variation in exchange rate.

3.1 Unless otherwise agreed by us, delivery of the goods shall take place at our place of business. Delivery shall occur when you take possession of the goods at our premises or (where we agree to deliver) when the goods are ready for unloading at the delivery address.

3.2 All delivery times quoted are estimates only.

3.3 If we fail to deliver within a reasonable time, you may (by informing us in writing) cancel the contract, however:

3.3.1 you may not cancel if we receive your notice after the goods have been dispatched; and

3.3.2 if you cancel the contract, you can have no further claim against us under that contract.

3.4 If you accept delivery of the goods after the estimated delivery time, it will be on the basis that you have no claim against us for delay (including indirect or consequential loss, or increase in the price of the goods).

3.5 We may deliver the goods in instalments. Each instalment is treated as a separate contract (and may be invoiced on delivery of that instalment).

3.6 We shall not be liable for any shortages in quantity delivered unless you give written notice to us of such shortages within two working days of delivery.

4.7 Business customers:we may charge you for any delay caused to our delivery vehicle by your breach of this clause, and for the cost of any abortive delivery.

4.8 Business customers:we may also charge you for demurrage (unreasonable delay caused to our delivery vehicle at the premises, for example by the presence of other delivery vehicles or shortage of labour to unload).

6.4.4 we may claim fixed sum compensation from you under s.5A of that Act to cover our credit control overhead costs; and

6.4.5 we may recover (under clause 6.9) the cost of taking legal action to make you pay.

16.6 Business customers: any notice by either of us which is to be served under these terms may be served by leaving it at or by delivering it to (by first class post or by fax) the other’s registered office or principal place of business. All such notices must be signed.

16.7 No contract will create any right enforceable (by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999) by any person not identified as the buyer or seller.

16.8 The only statements upon which you may rely in making the contract with us are those made in writing by someone who is (or whom you reasonably believe to be) our authorised representative and either:

16.8.1 contained in our estimate (or any covering letter) and not withdrawn before the contract is made; or

16.8.2 which expressly state that you may rely on them when entering into the contract.

16.9 Nothing in these terms affects or limits our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.

8.5      The Customer shall lose its rights to possession and resale of the Products if:

(a)       the Customer becomes subject to any of the events in clause 12.1(b) to clause 12.1(j); or

(b)       this agreement terminates and the Customer does not pay all outstanding amounts under this agreement within 30 days; or

(c)       the Customer suffers any legal or equitable execution to be levied on its property.

9.1      The Supplier may, immediately on giving written notice to the Customer: 

(a)       amend the Sales Order to exclude from this agreement one or more of the Products as it thinks fit; 

(b)       elect to alter the Specification of any of the Products, provided that the alteration does not materially adversely affect the performance of the Products; or

(a)       modify or replace the Products in order to avoid the infringement; or 

(b)       procure for the Customer the right to continue using the Products; or
