The Company is entitled to add any increase in purchase price prior to the actual date of delivery in accordance with clause 3.2

3.3 The Equipment purchase price less any deposit/trade in payment referred to on the Sales Order or as agreed in writing between the parties shall be paid by the Customer to the Company before the date of delivery without any deduction or other set off whatsoever, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Company prior to delivery.

Delivery, Risk and Performance

4.1 Equipment and Parts shall be delivered and risk in them shall pass to the Customer when they are made available at the delivery point which in the case of Equipment shall be at the point agreed in the Sales Order or otherwise agreed in writing between the parties, and in the case of Parts shall be the Company’s UK premises or as otherwise agreed in writing between the parties.

4.2 Subject to clause 4.1, trade terms referred to by the Company shall, to the extent consistent with these conditions, be defined in the edition of “Incoterms” then current.

4.3 The Company will endeavour, subject to these conditions, to comply with any delivery date and place given by it but shall not be liable for any loss, damage, or expense (whether direct or indirect) arising from any delay or failure in delivery or performance from any cause whatsoever nor shall any such delay or failure entitle the Customer to refuse to accept any delivery or performance or repudiate the Contract.

4.4 Times quoted for delivery or performance are subject to the availability of goods for the Contract and are based on the Customer supplying all necessary delivery instructions. Where any Goods are to be supplied from stock, times quoted are subject to the availability of stock at the expected date of delivery.

If the Company is unable to supply a suitable replacement(s) the Company may at its option repay to the Customer such part of the whole of the purchase price as the Customer has paid to the Company which relate to the goods that have been lost, stolen or mislaid, provided however that nothing in this clause shall be deemed to confer on the Customer any right to claim damages for non-delivery against the Company.

4.9 Notwithstanding the terms of this clause the Customer may at his option and by arrangement with the Company collect Equipment and/or Parts from the Company at a time and place convenient to the Company.

4.10 If the Customer fails to take delivery of any Goods on which the Company has performed work when tendered, or to provide adequate delivery instructions or to collect them when notified they are ready for collection, the Company at its discretion may exercise any or all of the following rights:

4.10:1 to store the Goods or materials at the risk of the Customer;

4.10 :3 to require the Customer to pay for the Goods (including any work) as though delivery or performance had been completed.

4.11 The Company may deliver the Goods by instalments, which may be invoiced separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate Contract. Any delay or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.

Title

5.1 Notwithstanding the earlier passing of risk, title in the Goods shall remain with the Company and not pass to the Customer (who shall, nevertheless, subject to the conditions stated below, be entitled to resell them as principal only, and to use them in the ordinary course of business) until the Company has (taking into account any deductions due under clause 7.1) received in cleared funds payment in full of the price of the Goods and of all other debts for any other Goods or Services owed to it by the Customer on any account.

5.2:2:1 repossess, remove from other equipment (without being liable for any damage thereby occasioned) and sell all or any of the Goods and thereby terminate (without any liability to the Customer) the Customer’s right to use or sell them; and

5.2:2:2 enter any premises where the Goods are located for the purpose of inspecting or repossessing them.

5.3 The Company shall, without prejudice to any other remedy, be entitled to maintain an action for the price of the Goods even if title in them has not passed to the Customer.

7.3 In addition to the Company’s rights under these conditions to terminate a Contract and/or repossess the Goods, if for whatever reason the Customer does not take possession of or pay the full price for the Goods against which the used goods are being traded then the Company may at the Company’s option either:

7.3:1 return the used goods to the Customer; or

Parts
