Business customers and consumers
1.1 Some of these terms apply to consumers only; some apply to business customers only. Those terms are marked as such.
1.2 All other terms apply to all customers.
1.3 You are classified as a business customer if you indicate to us that the goods supplied by us will be used in the course of your business or if you use the goods in the course of your business.
1.4 If you are not a business customer, you are a consumer. You have certain statutory rights as a consumer which are not affected by these terms. Contact your local trading standards office for more information. Words in italic type are legal words which clarify, rather than alter, the meaning of the relevant clause.

2.1 The price quoted excludes VAT, duties and other carriage charges (unless otherwise stated). VAT will be charged at the rate applying at the time of delivery. Sales Tax, where applicable, shall be charged at the prevailing rate at date of invoice.
2.2 Our quotations lapse after 30 days (unless otherwise stated).
2.3 The price quoted excludes delivery (unless otherwise stated).
2.4 The Buyer shall not be entitled to discounts other than those confirmed in writing by the Seller.
2.5 Business customers only: unless otherwise stated, the price quoted to business customers is an illustrative estimate only and the price charged will be our price current at the time of delivery.
2.6 Business customers only: rates of tax and duties on the goods will be those applying at the time of delivery.
2.7 Business customers only: if at any time before delivery the Seller’s supplier increases its price, the Seller reserves the right to increase the price of the Goods by the same percentage. Upon being notified of such increase, the Buyer has the option to either accept the increased price, or alternatively, to cancel such order without penalty; providing such cancellation is given within 7 days of the Buyer being notified of the increased price.

Purchase Order
3.1 All and any orders shall be made by the Buyer using only the Seller’s standard Purchase Order Form. The Seller nevertheless, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to accept, and to act upon orders placed by other means with the intent and to the effect that the Buyer is thereby bound by the terms of such accepted order and, further, is bound by and is deemed to have prior knowledge of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale if the Buyer shall at any time previously have placed an order with the Seller using the Seller’s Standard Purchase Order Form.
3.2 In the event of request for modification to or cancellation in part or in whole of a purchase order issued by the Buyer, such request must be sent to the Seller in writing no later than seven days after the date of taking of the order. Orders modified or cancelled after the seven day period shall be subject to a cancellation and restocking charge of 30% plus vat, where applicable, of the relevant goods, save for where clause 2.7 applies.
3.3 All goods ordered are intended exclusively for the Buyer. In order to maintain a common identity and preserve the integrity and reputation associated with the brands, the onward sale of the Goods to other stores and other locations of sale without prior written agreement of the Seller is not authorised. The Seller reserves the right to refuse to fulfil any order or terminate the agreement by notice forthwith, where the Seller knows or has reason to believe that the Buyer has: (a) sold or intends to sell the Goods to other stores or sales outlets, (b) assigned (or purported to assign) this agreement to a third party.
3.4 On receipt of a purchase order, the Seller shall, if it considers necessary, conduct a credit check on the Buyer. The Seller reserves the right to cancel the order if the credit check reveals the Buyer is unable or is unlikely to be able to pay for the Goods. Alternatively, the Seller reserves the right to request payment from the Buyer prior to the Goods being dispatched.
3.5 The Seller reserves the right in any event and with no requirement to state reason, to decline acceptance of any order.

4.1 Unless whole order shipment is specifically requested by the Buyer, all ordered items will be despatched as and when they become available in the warehouse.
4.2 All delivery times quoted are estimates only.
4.3 If we fail to deliver within a reasonable time after the quoted delivery time, you may (by informing us in writing) cancel the contract, however:
4.3.1 you may not cancel if we receive your notice after the goods have been dispatched; and
4.3.2 if you cancel the contract, you can have no further claim against us under that contract.
4.4 If you accept delivery of the goods after the estimated delivery time, it will be on the basis that you have no claim against us for delay (including indirect or consequential loss, or increase in the price of the goods).
4.5 We may deliver the goods in instalments. Each instalment is treated as a separate contract.
4.6 We may decline to deliver if:
4.6.1 we believe that it would be unsafe, unlawful or unreasonably difficult to do so; or
4.6.2 the premises (or the access to them) are unsuitable for our vehicle.

In the event that the Goods and display stands are not kept in a reusable condition, the Seller reserves the right to levy a reasonable charge to the Buyer in order for them to be restored to a reusable condition.
