  • b. The Company reserves the right, by giving notice to the customer at any time before delivery, to increase the price of goods and services to reflect any increase in the cost to the Company which is due to any factor beyond the control of the Company (such as alterations of transportation services, changes in delivery dates, or significant increase in the costs of labour or materials or other costs of manufacture).
  • 5. The Company does not operate a delivery service. All deliveries are carried out by independent haulage contractors on the customer’s behalf. (The customer has the option to organise their own collection and delivery) The Company will organise and schedule deliveries where possible to arrive at the customer’s requested drop off point and provide the delivery contractor with all the information provided to the Company by the customer. Normal deliveries are based on three working days(this does not included weekends and public holidays and requests for deliveries must be made in writing). Unless specifically requested and agreed by Company in writing, all deliveries will be by heavy goods vehicles (excludes parcel post). In instances where the delivery contractor does not have any lighter vehicles for delivery of goods, the customer can arrange their own transport. Whilst the Company will endeavour to arrange deliveries within the stated period at the time of ordering, the Company does not guarantee delivery of goods at specific times. The price quoted for delivery at the time of order is fixed, net of VAT and will be clearly shown on our invoice. Where delivery is attempted and no one is present to receive the goods, the goods may be taken back to the transport depot and a second additional delivery charge may apply. Any additional costs for redelivery will be the recipient’s responsibility alone.

    • c. Goods must be signed for by the customer or their representative and the signature must be clearly legible on the delivery documentation. The delivery contractors will not deliver goods without a signature. On receipt of the invoice for delivery of the goods, the Company will take this to mean that delivery has been successfully affected. The signed delivery documentation is the customer’s proof of delivery (POD). It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that this documentation is dealt with properly, particularly in circumstances where companies withhold payment until receipt of a signed POD. In the event that the POD is lost and the customer requires a replacement, this will be provided. Where repeated requests are made for POD’s due to the failure of a customer’s own paperwork management system, the Company reserves the right to levy an administration charge of £3.50 per copy.

Where any valid claim is notified to the Company in accordance with condition 7(a) above, the Company shall be entitled to replace the goods free of charge or at the Company’s sole discretion, refund to the customer the price of the goods( or a proportional part of the price), but the Company shall have no further liability to the customer.
