Terms and Conditions

Delivery

1.1 Delivery of the Goods shall be made to the Customer at the Seller’s premises at any time after the Seller has notified the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection or, if some other place for delivery is agreed by the Seller, by the Seller delivering the Goods to that place. 1.2 Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only and the Seller shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods howsoever caused. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence. The Goods may be delivered by the Seller in advance of the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Customer. 1.3 Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Seller to deliver any 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. 1.4 If the Seller fails to deliver the Goods for any reason other than any cause beyond the Seller’s reasonable control or the Customer’s fault and the Seller is accordingly liable to the Customer, the Seller’s liability shall be limited to the excess (if any) of the cost to the Customer (in the cheapest available market) of similar goods to replace those not delivered over the price of the Goods. 1.5 If the Customer fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give the Seller 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 Seller’s fault) then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Seller, the Seller may:- 1.5.1 store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Customer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or 1.5.2 sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage 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.

 

 

Distance Selling

 

 

2.1 A contract to purchase goods not viewed and inspected by the customer may be cancelled by the customer within fourteen days from the day following delivery of the goods. 2.2 Cancellation of a contract shall be made by the customer in writing to the seller. 2.3 The customer will pay for the cost of any packing, shipping or carriage when a purchase in cancelled, and for the cost of insurance cover for the goods until they are returned to the seller. 2.4 Goods must be returned to the seller in the condition they were delivered in.

Warranties and Liability

 

 

 

3.1 Subject as expressly provided in these Conditions and except where the Goods are sold to a person dealing as a consumer (within the meaning of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977), all warranties, conditions or other terms implied by statute or common law are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. 3.2 Where the Goods are sold under a consumer transaction (as defined by the Consumer Transactions (Restrictions on Statements) Order 1976) the statutory rights of the Customer are not affected by these Conditions. 3.3 Any representation or statement by the Seller as to the authorship, origin, date, age medium, attribution, genuiness, provenance or condition is a statement of opinion only based on the generally accepted opinion of scholars and experts current at or about the time of sale. 3.4 All goods are sold with all faults and imperfections and the Buyer should satisfy himself by inspection as to their condition and otherwise and rely on his own judgment. 3.5 Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by the Seller’s negligence, the Seller shall not be liable to the Customer by reason of any representation or any implied warranty, condition or other term or any duty at common law or under the express terms of the Contract, for any consequential loss or damage (whether for loss or profit or otherwise howsoever), costs, expenses or other claims for consequential compensation whatsoever (and whether caused by the negligence of the Seller, its employees or agents or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the supply of the Goods or their use or resale by the Customer, except as expressly provided in these Conditions.
