Armitage UK Terms and Conditions

ARMITAGES PET PRODUCTS LIMITED

General Terms and Conditions of Sale

 

  1. FORMATION AND INCORPORATION

Goods are sold on these Conditions to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions and all previous oral or written representations including any terms or conditions which you may purport to apply under any purchase order, confirmation of order or similar document.

Each order or acceptance of a quotation for goods shall be an offer by you to purchase goods on these Conditions. A contract for the sale of goods is formed when we accept your order either formally or by conduct.

Acceptance by you of delivery of any goods shall be conclusive evidence of your acceptance of these Conditions.

These Conditions may only be varied or amended in writing and signed by one of our directors.

  1. DESCRIPTION

Goods are offered subject to stocks being available.

We may make any change to the specification, design, materials or finishes of the goods or their packaging which are required to conform with any applicable safety, statutory or regulatory requirement. Where we cannot make any such changes we shall be entitled to rescind the relevant order or contract and we shall not be liable for any loss suffered by you as a result.

All samples, drawings, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising which we or any manufacturer issue and any descriptions or illustrations contained in our or any manufacturer’s catalogues or brochures are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving you an approximate idea of the goods represented by or described by them. They will not form part of any contract for the sale of goods which is not a sale by sample.

  1. PRICE AND PAYMENT

The price for the goods will be the price current at the date of despatch of order and is exclusive of value added tax or any other similar sales taxes levies or duties which will be added to or charged on invoices at the appropriate rate.

We may invoice you for the goods on or at any time after delivery and payment is due within 28 days of delivery.

Payment shall be due in pounds sterling but shall not be deemed received until we have received cleared funds.

All payments which you make will be made in full, without any set-off, restriction or condition and without any deduction for or on account of any counterclaim.

If any sum payable by you is not paid when due then, without prejudice to any of our other rights, that sum will bear interest from the due date until payment is made in full, both before and after any judgement, at 3% above HSBC Bank plc base rate from time to time and we will be entitled to suspend deliveries of the goods until the outstanding amount (including interest) has been received.

  1. DELIVERY

Goods will be delivered carriage paid (mainland UK only) on all orders of £350 in value (exclusive of value added tax). For orders below this amount we shall include appropriate costs of carriage in our invoice.

We may deliver the goods by separate instalments. Each instalment shall be a separate contract and no cancellation or termination of any one contract relating to an instalment will entitle you to repudiate or cancel any other contract or instalment.  Each separate instalment will be invoiced and paid for in accordance with these Conditions.

Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing any delivery times specified by us in our quotation or otherwise are business estimates only and time of delivery will not be of the essence. If we are unable for any reason to fulfil any delivery on the specified date we will not be deemed to be in breach of these Conditions.  We will not be liable to you for any direct, indirect or consequential loss (all three terms to include, without limitation, pure economic loss, loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill and like loss) howsoever caused (including as a result of negligence) by any delay or failure in delivery.  Any delay in delivery will not entitle you to cancel any order or contract.

It shall be your duty to inspect the goods on delivery and you will not be entitled to claim for non delivery, shortages, damages or incorrect delivery unless:-

  • the claim is notified to us by telephone within 72 hours and also confirmed in writing within 7 days of delivery; and
  • we have been given an opportunity of inspecting the goods before removal from the point of delivery.

Any other claims of whatsoever nature not falling within Condition 4.4 which arise from a delivery must be made in writing not more than 28 days after the date of delivery.

No claim arising out of damage, loss or delay of goods in transit can be made by you unless, in addition to any other requirements set out in these Conditions, we are notified in writing in sufficient time to enable a claim to be made on the carrier.

  1. RISK AND PROPERTY

The risk in the goods shall pass to you on delivery of the goods or any carrier acting on your behalf.

The property in the goods shall not pass to you until the full price of the goods and goods which are the subject of any other contract we have with you has been paid in full.

Until such time as the property in the goods has passed to you all goods: –

  • shall be held by you in a fiduciary capacity and stored by you at your premises in such a manner that they are clearly identifiable as our goods and shall be kept separate from any other goods whether or not supplied by us;
  • shall be handed over to us on demand and we shall be entitled to re-take possession of them without prejudice to any of our other rights against you;
  • shall be maintained in satisfactory condition and you will not destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the goods.

You grant to us an irrevocable licence at any time to enter any premises where the goods are or may be stored in order to inspect them or where your right to possession has terminated, to recover them.

We can recover payment for the goods from you notwithstanding that property in the goods has not passed to you from us.

  1. WARRANTY AND LIABILITY

    • Where any valid claim in respect of any of the goods which is based on any defect in quality or condition or made under Condition 4 is notified to us in accordance with these Conditions we shall be entitled to replace the goods (or the portion in question) free of charge or, at our sole discretion, refund to you the invoice price of the goods (or a proportionate part of the price) but we shall have no further liability to you.

      • any of the goods, or the manufacture or sale or supply, or failure or delay in supply, of the goods by us or on the part of our employees, agents or sub-contractors;
      • any breach by us of any of the express or implied terms of the contract for the sale of goods or of these Conditions;

      • our printing or using in any way labels, packaging and any other printed matter where such printing or use was in accordance with your instruction or authority;
