- Delivery – Supply only Contract
4.1 The Company will deliver the Goods to the address on the Quotation, or specified by the Customer in writing, for delivery of the Customer order. It is important that this address is accurate. Goods will need to be signed for and charges will be applied for re-deliveries if the Customer is not in attendance when delivery is attempted. The Company cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the Goods once they have been delivered in accordance with the Customer delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence). The company will aim to deliver the Goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are estimates only and not guaranteed. Time of delivery is not of the essence. If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond the Company’s reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period and the Company will contact the Customer to arrange an alternative time.
5.1 The Customer will provide general attendance without charge. General attendance shall be deemed to include reasonable access to the installation site during normal working hours, the provision of clean water supplies, power, security, and space for vehicles and the storage of plant and materials and the provision of welfare facilities.

6.1 Unless the Contract states otherwise, the Price for the Goods shall be payable no later than 30 days from the date of the relevant invoice. The time stipulated for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract.

6.2 The Customer shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any deduction or withholding except as required by law and the Customer shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against the Company in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part. The Company may, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by the Company to the Customer.
6.3 The Company has the right to apply an additional charge to The Customer if extra works are undertaken outside of those detailed in The Quotation.
6.4 Failure to comply with our payment terms will result in the invalidation of any guarantee, voucher or promotional material offered.

- Should the Customer give the Company notice they wish to postpone the Contract within 7 days of the Installation Date the Company may recover costs from the Customer amounting to 20% of the Price. Notice of postponement must be given in writing.

- If the Customer is a consumer, the Customer has a legal right to change their mind about the purchase and to notify the Company within 14 days of receipt of the Goods that they wish to return their Goods.
