b) These conditions shall apply to and be incorporated into every agreement between The Company and any person, firm or company (“the Customer”) under which The Company supplies goods or services at the request of the Customer, unless specifically excluded.

c) These conditions shall supersede all earlier standard terms and conditions of sale of The Company.

d) These conditions shall take precedence over any of the conditions of the Customer and shall not be varied without the written consent of a Director of The Company.

e) The Equipment referred to shall include all goods, services, accessories, tools and fittings and all additions and renewals made to the Equipment with the consent of The Company.

2. GENERAL

All orders are accepted and goods supplied by The Company subject to the following express terms and conditions and (so far as permitted by statute) all other conditions, warranties and representations, express or implied and statutory or otherwise, except as to title, are hereby excluded.

The Company reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time.

3. ORDERS

a) The Company reserves the right (without prejudice to any other remedy) to cancel any uncompleted order or to suspend delivery in the event of any of the Customer’s commitments with The Company not being met. If an order is cancelled by The Company in the aforementioned circumstances, or is cancelled by the Customer then the Customer shall indemnify The Company against all loss, cost (including the costs of all labour and materials used and overheads incurred), damages, charges and expenses arising out of the order and the cancellation thereof, (The Company giving credit for the value of any such materials sold or utilised for other purposes).

b) In the event of the Customer wishing to reschedule any order or part of an order, this can only be agreed by a duly authorised representative of The Company, and a minimum notice period of thirty days must be given for any reschedule to be considered.

4. EXTRA COST

In the event of any suspension of work through the Customer’s instructions or lack of instructions, the contract price(s) shall be increased to cover any extra expense thereby incurred by The Company. This does not apply to Support Contracts.

5. DISPATCH DATES

Any times quoted for dispatch shall be treated as an estimate only. Whilst every endeavour will be made to meet these estimated times for dispatch The Company shall not be liable for failures to dispatch within the time quoted. Any times quoted for dispatch are to date from the receipt by The Company of a written order to proceed and of all necessary information and drawings to enable the work to be put in hand. In all cases, whether a time for dispatch be quoted or not, the time for dispatch shall be extended by a reasonable period if delay in dispatch is caused by instructions, or lack of instructions, from the Customer or by industrial dispute or by any cause whatsoever beyond the reasonable control of The Company.

Trinity Workshops Ltd cannot guarantee delivery by the end of the Financial Year should the order be placed within 45 days of the end of the current Financial Year, as defined by HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs).  Goods may be delivered after this date.

6. STORAGE

If The Company does not receive forwarding instructions to enable dispatch of the goods within fourteen days after the date of notification that they are ready for dispatch, the Customer shall take delivery or arrange the storage. If the Customer does not take delivery or arrange for storage, The Company shall be entitled to arrange storage either at its own works or elsewhere on behalf of the Customer and all charges for storage, insurance or for demurrage shall be payable by the Customer.

7. CARRIAGE, DELIVERY, RISK AND TITLE

a) The risk of loss and/or damage to the goods supplied by The Company shall pass to the Customer when they are delivered to the Customer or other person to whom The Company has been authorised by the Customer to deliver the goods whether expressly or by implication by the carrier at the destination specified by the Customer or otherwise and The Company shall not be liable for the safety of the goods thereafter (and accordingly the Customer should insure the goods thereafter against such risks as may be commercially prudent).

b) Any damage to the goods in transit should be notified to the carrier and The Company within two days of receipt. The packing and contents are to be held for inspection. If the goods are not received by the Customer within six days of date of invoice the carrier and The Company should at once be informed. Claims not made within the said period(s) will not be entertained.

If payment in full is not made in accordance with these conditions of sale The Company shall have the right (without prejudice to the obligation of the Customer to purchase the goods) to retake possession of the whole or any part of the goods and for that purpose to enter any premises occupied by the Customer and to sever the goods from anything to which they are attached without being liable for any damage caused thereby and without prejudice to any other remedy that may be available to The Company.

If the Customer (who as between itself and any third part sub-purchaser shall be deemed to act on its own account and not as an agent for The Company) shall sell the goods prior to making payment in full for them, the beneficial entitlement of The Company therein shall attach to the proceeds of such sale or to the claim for such proceeds and the Customer shall hold such proceeds of sale on separate account for The Company absolutely.

8. PAYMENT

a) All accounts are strictly net and payable 30 days from the date of invoice unless explicitly stated otherwise in the relevant Trinity Workshops Ltd Quotation document.

10. CONTINGENCIES

The Company shall not be responsible for non-performance in whole or in part on its obligations nor under any liability to the Customer in respect thereof if such non-performance is due to act of God, war, insurrection, Government regulations, embargoes, strikes, labour disputes, illness, flood, fire, tempest or any other cause beyond the control of The Company.

The Company shall not in any event be liable for indirect or consequential loss.

12. FINANCIAL CONDITIONS

13. ASSIGNS
