3.2 The normal UK methods of delivery are post and carriers. All deliveries are subject to Packing and carriage charges shown in the price list or by quotation.

4.4 The Company will not accept packing and carriage charges for customer returns unless agreed by a Director
4.5 Refunds will be made on the receipt of the goods once the warranty claim is agreed. Proof of return (registered post or similar) should be retained as no refund or exchange can be made until the goods are received.

Note: The Company is unable to accept any liability save to the extent and in the circumstances described above. In particular, The Company cannot be liable for any financial loss, injury or damage caused to the buyer or any other person caused by any defect in the goods except to the extent that its negligence caused it or contributed thereto. The Company cannot, therefore, be responsible for the negligence of others. Where the buyer sells the Company’s goods as the Company’s agent, he has no authority to make any representations or give any warranties relating to the goods or their fitness for any purpose.

The property in any goods despatched shall remain with the Company until such time after delivery as the buyer has paid all his indebtedness to us.

The buyer is authorised to resell, as the Company’s agent, goods in which the property has not passed to him. Such sales must be in the ordinary course of his business and at a price not lower than that at which he bought the goods from us. He shall record these sales in such a way that they can readily be identified in his books. The buyer shall be liable to account to the Company for the proceeds of all sales made as the Company’s agent. Upon paying all his indebtedness to us upon invoices, he shall be entitled to retain the balance of such proceeds as his agreed commission on the sales. If the buyer enters into a composition of arrangement with his creditors, has a receiver appointed, commits an act of bankruptcy or if he goes into liquidation, the Company’s consent to his possession of the Company’s goods and his authority to sell them shall cease. The buyer shall return to the Company forthwith any of the Company’s goods held by him and also pay to us any monies received for any goods sold when acting as the Company’s agent. The Company may at any time require the buyer to return any of the Company’s goods held by him if any invoice becomes overdue. When goods are returned to the Company under these provisions, the Company will credit the buyer’s account with the trade price of the goods provided the goods are in perfect condition. If the goods are damaged the Company will credit at the Company’s estimate of the trade saleable value dependent on the severity of the damage. Any balance of the sum credited over the buyer’s indebtedness to the Company upon invoices will be returned to the buyer.
