Where Goods other than the Company's standard products are made to the Customer's order, the Goods may vary in accordance with normal trade tolerances from dimensions specified by the Customer in the order and the Customer shall not be entitled to make any claim against the Company in respect of such variations.

  5. Payment
    1. Subject to any special terms agreed in writing between the Customer and the Company, the Company shall be entitled to invoice the Customer for the price of the Goods on or at any time after delivery of the Goods, unless the Goods are to be collected by the Customer or the Customer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Goods, in which event the Company shall be entitled to invoice the Customer for the price at any time after the Company has notified the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection or (as the case may be) the Company has tendered delivery of the Goods.
    2. The Customer shall pay the price of the goods within 30 days of the date of the Company's invoice, notwithstanding that delivery may not have taken place and the property in the goods has not passed to the Customer. The time of payment of the price shall be of the essence of the Contract.
    3. If the Customer fails to make any payment on the due date then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Company, the Company shall be entitled to:
      1. cancel the Contract or suspend any further deliveries to the Customer;
      2. demand payment of all outstanding balances whether or not due and/or cancel any outstanding orders from the Customer

      4. charge the Customer interest (both before and after any judgement) on the amount unpaid at the rate of four (4) per cent per month above the Bank of England base rate, until payment in full is made.
  6. Title of Goods
    1. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk, property in and title to the goods shall remain with the seller until the seller has received payment of the full price of
      (a) all goods and/or services the subject of the contract and
      (b) all other goods and/or services supplied by the seller to the buyer under any contract whatsoever.
      Payment of the full price shall include, without limitation, the amount of any interest or other sum payable under the terms of this and all other contracts between the seller and buyer.
    2. Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Customer, the Customer shall hold the Goods as the Company's fiduciary agent and bailee and shall keep the Goods properly stored, protected and insured and identified as the Company's property.
  7. Delivery
    1. Prior to Delivery
      If the Contract provides for testing or inspection of the Goods by or on behalf of the Customer prior to delivery whether at the Company's premises or elsewhere, then upon the Company giving notice of the availability of the Goods for testing and/or inspection the customer shall inspect and/or test the Goods within 7 days of such notice.
    2. If the Customer fails to do so or if within 14 days the Customer having done so the Customer does not notify the Company that the Goods are not in accordance with the Contract specifying the matters complained of, then the Customer shall be conclusively deemed to have accepted that the Goods are in accordance with the Contract on the grounds of anything which such testing and/or inspection revealed or would have revealed if it had been carried out.
    3. Delivery
      Delivery of the Goods shall be made to the Customer collecting the Goods at the Company's premises at any time after the Company has notified the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection or, if some other place for delivery is agreed by the Company, by the Company delivering the Goods to that place.
    4. Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only and the Company shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods howsoever caused. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence unless previously agreed by the Company in writing. The Goods may be delivered by the Company in advance of the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Customer.
    5. Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Company to deliver one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Conditions or any claim by the Customer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Customer to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
    6. If the Company fails to deliver the Goods for any reason other than any cause beyond the Company's reasonable control or the Customer's fault, and the Company is accordingly liable to the Customer, the Company's liability shall be limited to the excess (if any) of the cost to the Customer (in the cheapest available market) or similar goods to replace those not delivered over the price of the Goods.
    7. If the Customer fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give the Company adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (otherwise than by reason of any cause beyond the Customer's reasonable control or by reason of the Company's fault) then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Company, the Company may:
      1. store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Customer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or
      2. sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage insurance and selling expenses) account to the Customer for the excess over the price under the Contract or charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price under the Contract
    8. Post Delivery
      Where Goods are stored on site prior to being commissioned by the Company's engineers, it is the Customer's responsibility to ensure the good condition of the Goods. Site visits made by engineers upon a request to investigate the operation of the Goods after installation will be chargeable unless they are found to be necessary because of faults in the design or manufacture of the Goods.
  8. Phased or Scheduled Delivery
    If the Contract provides for phased or scheduled delivery or for delivery by reference to call off by the Customer the following provisions shall apply:
    1. The price is calculated inter alia on the basis that the delivery dates are fixed for the total quantity of the Goods ordered at the time the Contract is entered into and may be increased if the Customer does not adhere to them.
    2. If delivery dates for the total quantity of the Goods ordered are not fixed at the time the Contract is entered into and the Customer fails to take delivery of any of the Goods for a period exceeding three months or if the Customer postpones any delivery date the Company may by notice in Writing to the Customer, treat the Contract as cancelled by the Customer as regards any balance of the Goods remaining to be delivered and the provisions of Condition 7 shall apply as if the Customer had cancelled the Contract.
  9. Commissioning
    In the case of Contract involving commissioning, it is understood that the Goods will be located and stored by the Customer at the Customer's risk. Unless otherwise stated in the quotation, it is assumed that:
    1. The site is accessible, clear, before the arrival of the Company's commissioning engineers, level and dry and where the floor and/or wall fixing is necessary, that there are no circumstances to prevent this.
    2. Electricity supply is available for light and power tools.
    3. That sufficient working space is allocated to ensure commissioning can be undertaken.
    4. That the Company's engineers are given every facility to complete their work without undue hindrance.
    5. The Company reserves the right to render additional charges should these Conditions not be adhered to. Where other contractors are also involved, it is assumed that their programme will be such as to permit the Company's work to be carried out with continuity and with the specified number of visits to site. Should the Company be subject to delays or require to make a return visit to site, this will involve additional charges.
  10. Inspection/Shortage
    1. It is the Customer's responsibility to notify the Company of any incorrect Goods supplied within 3 days of delivery. If the Goods are not what the Customer has ordered, the Customer must not open the manufacturers packaging or use the Goods.
    2. In the case of non-delivery of the Goods the Customer must notify the Company in writing within 7 days of the receipt by the Customer of the Company's invoice.
    3. Where Goods are damaged or destroyed prior to their delivery the Company shall deliver replacement Goods and any contractual time for delivery shall be extended by a reasonable time and the Company shall be under no liability whatsoever to the Customer for any loss or damage, whether direct, indirect, economic or consequential arising out of or relating to the aforesaid events.
  11. Acceptance of the Goods by the Customer
    The Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the Goods and it shall be conclusively agreed that they are free of any patent defect unless within 14 days of receipt of the Goods the Customer notifies the Company in Writing of any patent defect therein. For this purpose patent defect shall mean any defect in materials or workmanship or failure to comply with designs drawings specifications or other data supplied by the Customer or any other failure of the Goods to conform with the Contract which would be apparent upon inspection.
  12. Title of Goods
    1. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk, property in and title to the goods shall remain with the seller until the seller has received payment of the full price of
      1. All goods and/or services the subject of the contract and
      2. All other goods and/or services supplied by the seller to the buyer under any contract whatsoever.
        Payment of the full price shall include, without limitation, the amount of any interest or other sum payable under the terms of this and all other contracts between the seller and buyer.
