Delivery

Delivery

 

We will deliver the goods ordered by you to the address you give us for delivery at the time you make the order.

Delivery will be made as soon as possible after your order is accepted and in any event within 30 days of your order.

You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.

If we provide you with a time or date for delivery, it is intended as an estimate only and the Owner shall not be liable to make good any damage or loss whether arising directly or indirectly out of the delay in delivery.

If we give you a period for delivery and such period is not extended by mutual consent in writing or under the provisions mentioned below, you shall take delivery within that period.

Any date or period for delivery stated is given as an estimate only and is not binding on the Owner.

 

Deliveries may be wholly or partially suspended and the time of such suspension added to the original contract in the event of a stoppage, delay or interruption of work in the establishment of either the Owner or the customer during the delivery period as a result of strikes, lock-outs, trade disputes, breakdown, accident or any cause whatsoever beyond the control of the Owner or the customer respectively.

 

In the event of an outbreak of hostilities (whether war is declared or not) in which the United Kingdom is involved (or any country that any of the Group companies are located in), or in the event of National Emergency, or if the Owner should become either directly or indirectly so engaged on Government orders or orders under priority directions as to prevent or delay work on other orders, the Owner shall be entitled at any time, on notice to the customer, to make partial deliveries only or to determine the contract, without prejudice in any case to rights accrued in respect of deliveries already made.

 

All goods supplied by the Owner are on an ex-works basis unless otherwise agreed in writing between you and us.

 

We will not entertain any claim for damage in transit, shortage of delivery, or loss of goods will be unless in the case of damage in transit or shortage of delivery, a separate notice in writing is given to the carrier concerned and to the Owner at the time of delivery and the Owner receives a complete claim in writing at its head office within three days of delivery, and in the case of loss of goods, the Owner and the carrier concerned receive, in the case of the Owner at its head office, a complete claim in writing made within fifteen days from date of despatch.
