or any other consequences arising from or contributed to by any such matters.

unsold in the custody of the Purchaser they shall belong to the Company and be returnable to us on demand. If the goods have already been used and
form a building construction or part thereof then it is agreed that ownership of the building or construction will pass to the Company to the extent of the
unpaid price of the goods. The Purchaser will, as guarantee for payment to the Company, thereupon stand as Trustee for the Company to the extent of
the amount owed. If the building or construction is sold then the Company’s claim will attach to the proceeds of the sale in the same manner as if the
Company was a secured creditor in respect of the sale proceeds.
(a) Quotations (unless otherwise expressed) include the Company’s charge for delivering in full lorry loads of goods to the site nominated by the
Purchaser, such charges being based upon the assumption of unrestricted site access, level stacking space, firm standing, assistance, for unloading
on site and a maximum unloading time of 30 minutes. Should any delays occur beyond the 30 minutes allowed, occasioned by the Purchaser
having failed to provide the above facilities, the Company reserves the right to render an invoice for time wasted.

neglect of the Company’s agent or servant.
(d) Although the Company will use its best endeavours to comply with the Purchaser’s delivery requirements, the Company will not be liable for
delay in delivery howsoever occasioned and time shall not be deemed to be the essence of the contract.

journey and man hours.
(f) If the Company holds goods pending for more than 21days from the receipt of delivery instructions from the Purchaser or the Purchaser does not
accept the goods within that period the Company may invoice and are entitled to be paid for such goods as also for the storage of same.

with clause 14(a) hereof.

respect of any loss or damage suffered by the Purchaser as a result of any defect in the goods supplied. Whilst every effort will be made to avoid

reserves the right to claim for any loss of profit or such proportion thereof as the Company at its absolute discretion see fit, suffered by the
Company as a result of such cancellation.
