1. Any quotation is merely an invitation to you to place an order with us. We issue quotations based on information supplied by you to us. If the information you supply is not correct, you may order goods which conform to our specifications but are not suitable for your purpose (see clause 24)
2. If you offer to purchase goods based on a quotation from us, then your offer is subject to these conditions.
Not obligated to accept orders
3. We are not obligated to accept any order from you. If you place an order with us then it becomes binding from the moment that we accept it even if we do not tell you that it has been accepted.
Our order conditions overrule any order form
4. These conditions apply and prevail even if they are inconsistent with anything said or implied in any earlier or later order form or similar document
Non-cancellation of orders and non-return of goods
5. No returns or cancellations will be accepted without prior written agreement from us, which we may provide or withhold in our discretion (including imposing conditions); and
(a) Once you give us an order and we accept it, you may cancel the order or return the goods buy the way of cancellation only upon payment of our re-stocking charge, which varies from time to time, plus freight and insurance costs for the return of the goods
(b) As at the date this clause 5 was printed, our restocking charge varies as follows: (i) if you ask to cancel an order, and you return the goods to us in accordance with these conditions less 14 days after the delivery of the goods by us, the charge is nil; (ii) where the goods are returned in accordance with these conditions between 14 and 28 days after delivery, the charge is 10% of the sale price of the goods or services ordered; and (iii) we do not accept any returns more than 28 days after delivery; and
(c) You acknowledge that; (i) our re-stocking charge under this clause 5 is reasonable; (ii) the specified represents a reasonable and genuine pre-estimate of our expenses and loss resulting from your cancelled order; (iii) we may offer our restocking charges without notice to you; and (iv) you must be advised of our current re-stocking charges by contacting us from time to time
6. We cannot consider any request to cancel an order unless you return the goods to us with the original invoice number. If we initially agree to accept delivery of any returned goods, you acknowledge that is to inspect the goods to see if they are in good working order and condition and to ensure it is commercially realistic for us to re-sell the goods, and this does not mean we are bound to agree with the requested cancellation.
7. Goods supplied to special order are not returnable.
8. We do not accept cancellation of any order for, or return of any used parts.
9. Core deposits paid to us are refundable only if the return goods are complete and in our reasonable opinion able to be reconditioned in a commercially realistic and safe fashion.
Risk and title
10. We remain the owner of all goods supplied under a particular order until you have paid the full price for those goods plus associated charges.
11. Until you become the owner of goods-
(a) You hold them as agent and bailed for us and you owe a fiduciary duty to us in respect of them;
(b) You must if required by us store them on your premises separately from your own goods or goods of any other person and in a manner which makes them readily identifiable as our goods;
(c) We may terminate your right to resell them forthwith on written notice of termination being delivered to your place of business;
(d) We may retake possession, if (i) you default in paying any part of the price or associated charges for them; or (ii) you become or resolve to become subject to any form of insolvency administration.
12. We may for the purpose of recovery of our goods enter by our employees or agents on any premises where the goods are stored or where they are reasonably thought to be stored and may repossess them. This permission is irrevocable and you agree that our employees or agents so entering are not trespassing.
13. Stock you hold which meets the description of the stock on an invoice for which payment has not been made is in the absence of separate storage of goods and in the absence of evidence to the contrary treated as stock to which we have retained title. We may exercise our remedies under these provisions against that stock.
14. The dept you owe to us at the date of repossession of stock is, as between the parties, taken to include any payment we have previously received which might be claimed void under any law relating to bankruptcy, liquidation or the protection of creditors. This is so whether or not a claim has been made.
15. You accept the risk of damage or loss of goods we supply to you, from the time the goods are dispatched from our premises.
Sales by specification
16. You must ensure that the goods we supply are suitable for the purposes before using the goods for those purposes. Except to the extent expressly specified by us in writing, we sell goods by specification and you decide for what purpose to use or re-supply the goods.

We are not liable for any loss or damage caused by persons seeking to fit unsuitable goods.
Variations in specifications
17. We reserve the right to vary the specification or performance criteria of any product from time to time and to obtain products from different sources, at our absolute discretion.

19. We warrant new parts to be free from defects in material or workmanship for twelve months from date of supply unless the manufacturer’s warranty applies for an equivalent or greater period in which case that warranty will apply to the exclusion of this warranty.
20. All products come with manufacturer’s warranty only, and are supplied by us ‘as is’.
21. The manufacturer’s warranty may not cover any damage caused by the use of other than the same manufacturer’s parts and consumables, and/or installation or service/maintenance by other than suppliers of those services approved by that manufacturer or its authorized representatives or other qualified personnel.
22. We are not liable in any way for damage due to normal wear and tear.
23 Subject to local legislation, in which case we provide the minimum required warranty, we do not warrant that used or reconditioned parts or products are free from any defects in material or workmanship.
