Should payment remain outstanding beyond the Seller’s payment terms the Buyer is liable for all costs including legal costs (solicitor/own client basis/mercantile agency) incurred by the Seller in recovering the amount outstanding. The Buyer shall not be entitled to withhold payment on the grounds that it has a claim or set-off against the Seller. The Seller has the right to pass on any dishonour fees to the Buyer.

Delivery Dates are intended as estimates only. The Seller shall not be liable for any loss or damage whether arising directly or indirectly from the delay in delivery.

The Seller reserves the right to nominate the means of delivery, however the buyer can opt for goods to be sent via a different method, such as air or other means at an additional charge. The Seller is only responsible for delivering the goods to the location specified in the contract. Each delivery shall be considered a separate contract and the failure of any delivery shall not invalidate the balance of an order. If delivery is delayed or declined by the buyer the Seller has the right to either
i) sell the goods for Seller’s account and/or
ii) cancel the contract without prejudice. The Seller shall not be liable for the freight costs on goods returned by the Buyer.
Acceptance Of Goods and Liability
The Buyer shall inspect all goods upon delivery and shall within seven (7) Business days of delivery give notice to the Seller named in the relevant Sales Invoice, which the buyer alleges that the goods are not in accordance with the Buyers order. Failing such notice, subject to any non-excludable condition implied by law, such as those in the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) the goods shall be deemed to have been delivered to and accepted by the Buyer. The Buyer, in the case of defective products, will make sure that the whole consignment in respect of which a claim will be lodged, remains available for inspection by the Seller. In case only part of the product is available for inspection, the same will constitute a waiver by the Buyer of any claim in respect of the other part of the consignment. No return of allegedly defective or faulty goods will be accepted by the Seller unless the Seller has given prior written authorisation for the return.
Return of goods (other than in situations where the Seller is required to accept a return of goods under the Australian Consumer Law) must be approved by the Seller in writing. These authorised goods must be freight prepaid and will only be accepted if they are in as new condition, and returned within 14 days of supply. The Seller reserves the right to charge a restocking fee of 15% of the price of the goods returned. The Seller will not accept the return of goods specifically purchased, manufactured, machined or cut to size or to the Buyer’s specifications other than in situations where the Seller is required to accept a return of such goods under the Australian Consumer Law.
The Seller reserves the right to suspend or discontinue the supply of goods to the Buyer on reasonable grounds without being obliged to give any reason for its actions.
The Seller warrants that material delivered herein meets the Seller’s standard specifications for the material or such other specifications as have been expressly agreed between the Seller and buyer and that such material is adequately contained, packaged, and labelled and conforms to the premises and affirmations of fact made on the container and label. All warranties whether expressed or implied and whether statutory or otherwise with regards to the goods supplied by the Seller as to quality, fitness for purpose or any other matter and hereby excluded except insofar as any such warranties are incapable of exclusion at law. The Buyer shall immediately notify the Seller in writing of any defect in the goods supplied by the Seller. The Buyer shall not carry out any remedial work to allegedly defective goods without first obtaining the written consent of the Seller to do so. This warranty is specifically made and limited to the Buyer in respect of the goods actually manufactured by the Seller, and in respect of other goods sold, but not manufactured by the Seller, to the extent of the liability assumed by the Seller’s supplier. No warranty is made to any other person, firm or company, whether subsequent Buyer or user, or to any bailee licensee, assignee, employee, agent or otherwise.

A Quotation is not to be construed as an obligation to sell but merely an invitation to treat and no contractual relationship shall arise from it until the Buyer’s order has been accepted in writing by the seller. The Seller shall not be bound by any conditions attached to the Buyer’s order or acceptance of a Quotation and, unless such conditions are expressly accepted by the Seller in writing the Buyer acknowledges that such conditions are expressly negated.

To the extent permitted by statute, any performance data provided by the Seller, a supplier, or manufacturer is an estimate only and should be construed accordingly. Unless agreed to the contrary in writing, the Seller reserves the right to supply an alternative brand or substitute product that has characteristics that are materially consistent with the goods offered when necessary.
Where the Seller is acting as agent for a manufacturer or supplier, to the extent permitted by statute, the Seller shall not be liable for any alteration or variation in the goods made by this manufacturer or supplier.
Any charge, duty, impost, sales tax or other expenditure/tax which is not applicable at the date of the Quotation or Sales Invoice but which subsequently levied upon the Seller in relation to a Quotation or Sales Invoice as a result of the introduction of any legislation, regulation or government policy, shall be to the Buyer’s account.
If the Seller is prevented from producing or delivering goods or part thereof, of any cause beyond reasonable control of the Seller (whether or not the circumstances in question could have been foreseen at the time), including without limitation, governmental action, acts of God, insurrection, riots, war, hostilities, piracy, arrest, restraints, or detainments of an competent authority, strikes or lock-outs of workers, floods, droughts, earthquakes, mechanical breakdowns, failure by national utilities to supply utilities, shortage of or inability to obtain materials, equipment or transportation at usual or reasonable prices, the obligation of the Seller to effect deliveries shall be suspended whilst such prevention shall continue.

If payment is made by way of cheque, ownership does not pass to the Buyer until the Cheque has been honoured. Until the goods are paid for in full the Buyer shall hold the goods as a trustee for the Seller. In the event that the Buyer fails to pay the Seller for the goods by the due date required for payment under the Seller’s Terms and Conditions, the Buyer (without prejudice to the Seller’s rights as an unpaid Creditor or any of its other rights and remedies to retake possession of the Seller’s goods from the Buyer) hereby agrees to deliver up the goods to the Seller upon demand by the Seller and consents to the Seller retaking possession of the goods which remain unpaid. The parties acknowledge that by supplying or accepting goods on the terms herein specified, it is not intended to create a charge, mortgage, or other security interest over any of the goods supplied.
Power to Sell Goods
Nothing herein shall prevent the Buyer from selling the goods to any third party provided that the proceeds of any such sale shall be held in trust by the Buyer for the Seller until the Seller has received payment in full for the goods.
A Certificate signed by an officer of the Seller will be prima facie evidence of the Buyer’s liability to the Seller at the date of the Certificate.
Orders placed with the Seller cannot be cancelled without the written approval of the Seller. In the event that the Seller accepts the cancellation of any order placed with it shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for any work done on behalf of the Seller to the date of cancellation including a fee for the processing and acceptance of the Buyer’s order and request for cancellation.
