In these Conditions, the ‘Company’ means A. Cowley & Sons Limited and any subsidiary of the ‘Company’ by whom goods are sold or purchased.
Contracts for the sale of goods or materials by the Company are made subject only to these conditions. Should the purchaser wish to make any alteration to these conditions and/or substitute other conditions they must inform the Company before the contract is concluded so that any change can be agreed. Any change to these conditions will only be binding when agreed by one of the Company’s representatives confirmed in writing and duly signed.
All goods and materials supplied by the Company remain the Company’s property until the Company receives payment in full for the same. The risk in the goods shall pass to the purchaser upon collection or delivery.
The Company shall be entitled to increase its prices at any time to take account of any increase in the cost to the Company of purchasing any goods, materials or services (including but not limited to any such increase arising from any error or any change in taxes, custom duties, freight charges, insurance premiums or exchange rates). The Customer would be informed prior to sale.
Payment terms are on delivery or collection; or strictly 30 days or as agreed between the Company and the Purchaser. In the event of these terms not being complied with the Company shall be entitled to repossess the goods from the purchaser or in the event that the goods are at premises of a third party by the direction of the purchaser then the purchaser shall, if so required by the Company remove the goods from such premises and return them to the Company forthwith.
The Company will endeavour to deliver the goods or make collection available by any date or within any period agreed upon. Should the Company be delayed in or prevented from delivering or collection of the goods on the agreed date, the Customer would be informed and an alternative date would be arranged. The Company is not liable for any loss of earnings or expenses incurred due to this delay.
If the Customer shall for any reason fail to take delivery of the goods on the arranged date and a return delivery is required, the Company shall be entitled to make an additional charge for any costs incurred as a result of repeated delivery necessitated by such failure.
Goods to be checked on delivery or collection, any discrepancies or breakages must be notified within 24 hours for replacement or refund.
