Terms and Conditions
These conditions apply to the use of this Website and by accessing this Website and/or placing an order you agree to be bound by them. If you do not agree to be bound by these conditions you may not use or access this Website.
In this contract “The Company” means Electrical Trader and “The Purchaser” means the individual person or company contracting with the Company. These terms and conditions are incorporated into each agreement entered into between the Company and the Purchaser whether or not any other document makes reference to these terms.
Only these conditions together with any written amendments and/or alterations authorised by the Company shall apply to the contract for the sale of goods specified on our invoice. In particular no statement in any quotation shall form part of the contract unless specifically included. Any purchase conditions of the Purchaser only become binding when the Company expressly confirms the same.
Product Descriptions and Illustrations
Each Product purchased is sold subject to its Product Description. Whilst we will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details and prices of Products appearing on the Website are up to date, any such details and descriptions given on the website or in any of the Company’s catalogues and statements (written or oral) by any representative of the Company are provided to give the Purchaser an approximate picture or description of the article concerned and do not form the basis of any contractual liability. No warranty or condition that the article shall accord with such an illustration, description or statement is to be implied and any warranty or condition capable of arising is excluded.
Orders will be charged at prices current at time of delivery. All prices for UK and EU orders are subject to Value Added Tax and any other government duty or tax applicable. All prices stated are ex-factory and the Purchaser shall be charged extra with any packaging and delivery costs.
Payment and Credit Facilities
Where no credit account exists, payment must be sent with order. Credit accounts may only be opened at the Company’s discretion and subject to satisfactory references being given. The Company may make a search with a credit reference agency or other source on the Purchaser and/or its principal directors and maintain a copy of such search on file. The Company shall retain the right to refuse credit facilities without having to divulge a reason.
Credit accounts shall be settled within 30 days from the date of invoice. Non-payment on or before the due date shall entitle the Company without prejudice to any other rights to:
i) Suspend any further delivery of goods whether under this contract or any other.
ii) Repossess the goods (the Purchaser granting the Company all necessary access) and
iii) Receive interest at the rate of 4% above (HSBC Bank ) base rate for the time being on the unpaid balance, whether before or after any judgement.
The Purchaser shall not be entitled to delay payment of the price or any part thereof on the grounds that it has a claim or set-off against the Company.
Delivery, Shortages, Damage and Non-Delivery
The Company’s Delivery and Returns Policy applies
The risk in goods supplied shall pass to the Purchaser upon collection or despatch from the Company’s premises. Where the Purchaser refuses to accept delivery, goods shall nevertheless thereafter be at the Purchaser’s risk.
The title in all goods supplied by the Company shall remain in the Company until the Purchaser makes full payment for those goods. In case of instalment deliveries, no title in any goods supplied pursuant to that order should pass until payment has been made in full for that order.
The Purchaser shall be free to sell any goods in the ordinary course of its business so as to pass good title to any third party, provided always that claims for proceeds from such resale shall be deemed to be assigned to the Company. Proceeds from such re-sales received by the Purchaser shall be held by it on trust for the Company to the extent necessary to effect full payment to the Company and the Purchaser shall if required by the Company immediately upon such resale notify the Company with full details of such resale. Furthermore, the Company shall be entitled to notify the ultimate Purchaser that such resale price is to be paid direct to the Company.
Until the full purchase price has been paid, goods remaining in the Purchaser’s possession shall be held by the Purchaser as bailee and in a fiduciary capacity for the Company which shall be entitled to terminate such bailment and the Purchaser hereby grants the Company the irrevocable licence to enter upon the Purchaser’s premises to recover the whole or part of the goods, which in the meantime shall be stored in such a way as to clearly identify them as being the Company’s property.
The Purchaser has responsibility to satisfy itself that the goods are suitable in all respects for the Purchaser’s purpose and the Purchaser shall inform the Company in writing of any special circumstances or conditions affecting or liable to affect the use or performance of the goods. The Company shall be entitled to deliver and charge for goods supplied within the usual production tolerances.
