We exclude any liability for any loss or damage of any nature arising from any error, inaccuracy or omission in that material.

Price and Payment

The price shall be that in the Seller’s current List Price, or such other price as the parties may agree in writing. The price is exclusive of VAT or any other applicable costs. Carriage shall be paid for by the Buyer unless expressly stated as an addition to the price of the goods. Payment of the price and VAT and any other applicable costs shall be due at point of sale. If payment of the price or any part thereof is not made by the due date, the Seller shall be entitled to: require payment in advance of delivery in relation to any Goods not previously delivered; refuse to make delivery of any undelivered Goods whether ordered under the contract or not and without incurring any liability whatever to the Buyer for non-delivery or any delay in delivery; terminate the contract. Make judgement against the buyer to retrieve outstanding debts, with the buyer being liable for all costs incurred.


Any description given or applied to the Goods is given by way of identification only and the use of such description shall not constitute a sale by description.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Buyer hereby affirms that it does not in any way rely on any description when entering into the contract.


Where a sample of the Goods is shown to and inspected by the Buyer, the parties hereto accept that such a sample is so shown and inspected for the sole purpose of enabling the Buyer to judge for itself the quality of the bulk, and not so as to constitute a sale by sample.


Unless otherwise agreed in writing, delivery of the Goods shall take place at the address specified by the Buyer on the date specified by the Seller.  The Buyer shall make all arrangements necessary to take delivery of the Goods whenever they are tendered for delivery. The date of delivery specified by the
Seller is an estimate only.  Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the contract. If the Seller is unable to deliver the Goods for reasons beyond its control, then the Seller shall be entitled to place the Goods in storage until such times as delivery may be effected and the Buyer shall be liable for any
expense associated with such storage. The Buyer shall be entitled to replacement Goods where the Goods have been damaged during transportation. The Buyer must sign for goods as ‘damaged’ and notify the Seller of the damage within 24 hours of delivery.

Cancellation and Return of Goods

If goods received do not meet the buyer’s requirements, the seller will credit the buyer the purchase price of the goods providing that the goods are returned to the seller unused, undamaged and in the original packaging within 30 days of delivery and subject to our right to levy a 20% restocking charge. The return of goods will be at the buyers expense.
