Unless previously withdrawn a quotation shall lapse after thirty days from the date thereof.



The Company reserves the right to alter, vary or modify the specifications of goods without notice. The specifications supplied by the Company pursuant to a contract shall be deemed to be the specification of the goods current at the date of their delivery. All drawings, brochures, catalogues, illustrations and other like material are issued by the Company by way of general description only and remain the property of the Company at all times. No performance details, power rating, capacity, output, dimensions nor other particulars of the goods nor of their operation (whether contained in such descriptive material or not) shall form part of any contract of sale with the Company or otherwise bind the Company unless included in the forming part of an official quotation issued by the Company.



The Company’s published prices are net prices for delivery of the goods at Mount Maunganui or such other place as may be agreed upon. All prices are subject to alteration without notice. Any cost, charges or expenses (including cost of packing) incurred by the Company incidental to the supply of goods pursuant to a contract shall be extra charges to be paid by the purchaser at the time of payment of the goods.



If the performance of the contract requires a license or other permit of any Government authority the purchaser is responsible for obtaining such license or permit and the contract shall be conditional upon such license or permit being available at the time specified by the company and if not then available the contract may be cancelled at the option of the company. The purchaser shall be liable for any costs incurred by the Company in execution of the contracts up to its date of cancellation. In the event of a contract being cancelled in pursuance of the terms of this paragraph 4, then except for the Purchaser’s liability to the Company for any costs incurred by the Company in the execution of the contract up to the date of cancellation, neither the Company nor the Purchaser shall have any claim whatsoever against the other arising out of such cancellation. The purchaser will exercise all due efforts to have any necessary license or permit issued.



The Company will use all reasonable means to make delivery on the date wanted as indicated on the face of this order but it is understood and the Purchaser agrees that the Company shall have no liability whatsoever for loss or damage arising out of delivery later than the date wanted; and in the event the Company’s performance of this agreement is, in whole or in part, prevented or abnormally hindered or the cost thereof abnormally increased by any cause whatsoever which is reasonably beyond the Company’s control the Company shall have the right to cancel, without liability on its part, the entire or any portion of this agreement so affected. The Purchaser shall take delivery within seven days of receipt by the Purchaser of notification from the Company that the goods specified by the company are ready for delivery.

(a) All charges incidental to the storage of the goods; and
(b) Interest on the purchase price at the rate of thirty percent per annum calculated from the date of delivery notification.

(in addition to any costs of storage and of interest):

(i) the amount if any, by which the disposal proceeds are less than the selling price under the contract of sale ; and

(ii) any expenses, cost or losses incurred by the Company.



A deposit of 10% of the contract price is required prior to work commencing. Should manufacturing take longer that or fall over the end of a calendar month the Company reserves the right to require payment on a monthly basis of 75% of the value of the work completed. Such claims will be payable on the 20th of the following month. Full payment for the goods is due and shall be made within seven days of the Purchaser receiving notification that the goods are ready for delivery. Payment shall in any event be made on or before delivery of the goods unless prior arrangements have been made with the Company. The Company’s liability under the contract shall only commence when payment has been made for the goods in accordance with the terms of the contract and shall in any event be subject to the Purchaser’s other obligations to the Company under that contract being properly observed. The parties agree that this is not a Credit Contract within the meaning of the Credit Contacts and Consumer Finance Act 2003. If the Purchaser fails to make payment on the date or dates required by this contract, the Purchaser is in default and is liable to pay penalty interest at the rate of 30% per annum on the amount outstanding.



Property in the goods shall not pass to the Purchaser until the Purchaser has paid the full purchase price to the Company to the intent that S.20 Sales of Goods Act 1908 shall no apply to this transaction. Until property passes the Purchaser permits the Company to enter the Purchaser’s property to inspect and repossess the goods. Notwithstanding the above the goods shall be at the sole risk of the Purchaser from the time of the delivery of the goods to the Purchaser. If the goods are sold or otherwise disposed of by the Purchaser prior to payment in full having been made, the Purchaser is liable in conversion, and the proceeds of such sale or disposition shall be the property of the Company.


The Customer agrees to protect the Company’s retention of title provisions as provided in clause 7 of this Agreement and in performance of this obligation the Customer agrees:

(i) The Company may register a Financing Statement on the Personal Property Securities Register for the purpose of securing the Company’s retention of title in the goods; and

 (ii) To provide the Company with all information the Company may request from the Customer to enable the Company to register a Financing Statement.

 The Customer, pursuant to section 148 of the Personal Property Securities Act 1999, further agrees to waive their right to receive a copy of any verification statement received by the Company resulting from the registration of a Financing Statement.



If the purchaser for any reason cancels the order after its acceptance by the Company, then the Purchaser shall be liable for all costs, expenses and losses whatsoever of the Company resulting from such cancellation. In particular cancellation will only be accepted on payment of all costs and expenses incurred by the Company in the execution of the order up to the date of cancellation and until payment, cancellation of the order shall be deemed not to have taken place notwithstanding any instructions from the Purchaser to the contrary. Any payment made under the provisions of paragraph 8 to secure the cancellation of the contract, shall be without prejudice to the Company’s right to recover any other costs, expenses and losses suffered by it as a result of such cancellation.
