- Supply of Parts and Repairs
2.1 The Supplier shall provide the Parts and the Repairs subject to these Terms which shall govern the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms subject to which any such quotation is accepted or purported to be accepted, or any such order is made or purported to be made, by the Client. The Supplier and the Client must agree any changes to these Terms in Writing.
2.2 Subject to these Terms the Supplier shall supply the Parts or Repairs in accordance with the Supplier’s quotation (if accepted by the Client), or the Client’s order (if accepted by the Supplier).
3.1 The Supplier will provide the Client, free of charge, with an estimate over the telephone or otherwise of the charges for the Repairs based on the Client’s description of the damage. If the Client accepts the estimate the Client shall provide the Equipment to the Supplier and make Payment in accordance with the estimate in full or on account.
3.2 Once the Equipment has been received, the Supplier may, after having examined the extent of the damage and re-assessed the work involved, provide a revised estimate to the Client if appropriate or reject the work in accordance with clause 9.2. If the Client accepts the revised estimate, the Client shall make any additional Payment necessary to the Supplier. Unless the revised estimate is accepted by the Client the Supplier shall not be obliged to carry out the repairs.
3.3 If the Client does not communicate its acceptance of the revised estimate to the Supplier or the Supplier does not receive payment in full or on account within 14 days of providing the estimate or revised estimate, or rejects the work, the Supplier shall return the Equipment to the Client unrepaired by insured post if payment has been received or ordinary post if payment has not been received and if it does so it shall refund the Payment to the Client less the cost of the return postage. The Supplier shall be entitled to reject an order for the supply of Parts in accordance with clause 9.2 if it cannot obtain suitable or sufficient Parts.
3.4 If the Client has an account for payment and unless the Supplier has rejected the work, contracts for Repairs shall be concluded when the Supplier receives the Equipment. In all other cases unless otherwise agreed and unless the Supplier has rejected the work, contracts for Repairs shall be concluded when the Supplier receives the Equipment and payment (including any additional payment required as a result of a revised estimate), in full.
3.5 If the Client has an account for payment and unless the Supplier has rejected the work, contracts for the sale of Parts only shall be concluded when the Supplier receives the order details. In all other cases unless otherwise agreed and unless the Supplier has rejected the work, contracts for the supply of Parts only shall be concluded when the Supplier receives the order details and payment in full.
3.6 The Client shall be responsible to the Supplier for ensuring the accuracy of the terms of any order submitted by the Client for the supply of Parts.
3.7 The Supplier may at any time without notifying the Client make any changes to the Repairs which are necessary to comply with any applicable safety or other statutory requirements, or which do not materially affect the nature or quality of the Repairs.
3.8 Without prejudice to clauses 3.2 and 9.2, the Supplier shall not be obliged to carry out Repairs where:
3.8.1 the damage is caused by defects or failures that are due to neglect or misuse, failure of or defect in electrical power, external electrical circuitry, unusual physical or electrical stress, air conditioning or environmental controls, the effects of weather influences, the use of items not provided by the original manufacturer;
3.8.2 the Client has forgotten, lost or removed any password which prevents access to the Equipment; or
3.8.3 the damage is caused by a virus or another pre-programmed device with similar effect,
and in such event the Supplier shall return the Equipment to the Client unrepaired by insured post if payment has been received or ordinary post if payment has not been received and if it does so it shall refund the Payment to the Client less the cost of the return postage.
- Charges and Payment
4.1 The price of the Parts and the Repairs to be performed shall be the Supplier’s quoted price. All prices quoted are valid for 30 days only or until earlier acceptance by the Client, after which time they may be altered by the Supplier in line with any increase in costs incurred by the Supplier in providing the Parts or Repairs. The Supplier will then supply the Client with a revised quotation.
4.2 Unless a Client holds an account with the Supplier or as otherwise agreed, Payment must be made in advance, in full and in cleared funds before the Supplier will despatch the Parts to the Client or start work on the Repairs. No Payment shall be deemed to have been received until the Supplier has received cleared funds.
4.3 Clients with an account must settle the account within 30 days from the relevant invoice date.
4.4 The time of Payment shall be of the essence of the Contract. Receipts for Payment will be issued only upon request.
4.5 If the Client fails to make any payment on the due date then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Supplier, the Supplier shall be entitled to:
4.5.1 cancel the Contract or suspend any further deliveries or services to the Client;
4.5.2 charge the Client interest (both before and after any judgement) on the amount unpaid, at the rate of 5 per cent per annum above Barclays Bank PLC’s base rate from time to time, until payment in full is made (a part of a month being treated as a full month for the purpose of calculating interest);
4.5.3 give notice of its lien and retain the Equipment for such period as the Supplier deems reasonable, in accordance with clause 5.
4.6 All prices are exclusive of any applicable value added tax, which the Client shall be additionally liable to pay to the Supplier.
4.7 The Supplier will accept Payment by cash, credit card, debit card or cheque. If Payment is made by cheque then it must be made in sufficient time for the cheque to clear prior to the Contract start date and the Supplier shall not be obliged to make any repairs until the cheque has cleared.
4.8 The Supplier reserves the right, by giving written notice to the Client at any time before delivery, to increase the price of the Parts or the Repairs to reflect any increase in the cost to the Supplier which is due to any factor beyond the control of the Supplier (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture), any change in delivery dates, quantities or specifications for the Parts which is requested by the Supplier, or any delay caused by any instructions of the Client or failure of the Client to give the Supplier adequate information or instructions.
5.1 Without prejudice to any other remedies the Supplier shall in the event of default by the Client have a general lien on all goods and property in its possession (whether worked on or not) and belonging to the Client in respect of any sums due from the Client and shall be entitled if any lien is not satisfied within  months from the date upon which the Supplier first gave notice of the lien to the Client to sell or dispose of such goods or property as it thinks fit and to return the proceeds of sale less payment of any unpaid amounts for the Repairs, postage costs and storage fees to the Client, provided the Client has provided its postage address to the Supplier.
6.1 Subject to clause 5.1 and to Payment having been made, Equipment submitted to the Supplier for Repairs shall be posted to the Client by insured post once the Repairs have been completed.
6.2 Delivery of the Parts shall be made by the Supplier posting the Parts to an address notified by the Client. Where the Parts are of sufficiently high value they shall be posted by insured post.
6.3 Any dates quoted for delivery of the Parts or the Equipment are approximate only and the Supplier shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Parts or the Equipment however caused. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the Contract unless previously agreed by the Supplier in writing. The Parts may be delivered by the Supplier in advance of the quoted delivery date on giving reasonable notice to the Client.
6.4 Where the Parts are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Supplier to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Terms or any claim by the Client in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Client to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
6.5 If the Supplier fails to deliver the Parts (or any instalment) or the Equipment for any reason other than any cause beyond the Supplier’s reasonable control or the Client’s fault, and the Supplier is accordingly liable to the Client, the Supplier’s liability shall be limited to the excess (if any) of the cost to the Client (in the cheapest available market) of similar parts to replace those not delivered over the price of the Parts or the current market value of the Equipment at that time.
6.6 If the Client fails to take delivery of the Parts or the Equipment or fails to give the Supplier adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (otherwise than by reason of any cause beyond the Client’s reasonable control or by reason of the Supplier’s fault) then, without limiting any other right or remedy available to the Supplier, risk in the Parts and the Equipment will pass to the Client (including for loss or damage caused by the Supplier’s negligence) and the Supplier may:
6.6.1 store the Parts or the Equipment until actual delivery and charge the Client for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or
6.6.2 sell, destroy or otherwise dispose of any Equipment, document or other property of the Client which has been in its custody for more than  months following notification to the Client that it is ready for delivery.
- Risk and property
7.1 Risk of damage to or loss of the Parts or the Equipment shall pass to the Client at the time of delivery or, if the Client wrongfully fails to take delivery, in accordance with clause 6.6, the time when the Supplier has tendered delivery.
7.2 Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Parts, or any other provision of these Terms, the property in the Parts shall not pass to the Client until the Supplier has received in cash or cleared funds Payment in full of the price of the Parts and all other sums for which Payment is then due.
7.3 Until such time as the property in the Parts passes to the Buyer, the Buyer shall hold the Parts as the Supplier’s fiduciary agent and bailee, and shall keep them separate from those of the Client and third parties and properly stored, protected and insured and identified as the Supplier’s property.
7.4 Until such time as the property in the Parts passes to the Client, the Supplier shall be entitled at any time to require the Client to deliver them up to the Supplier and, if the Client fails to do so forthwith, to enter upon any premises of the Client or any third party where they are stored and repossess them.
7.5 The Client shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Parts which remain the property of the Supplier, but if the Client does so all monies owing by the Client to the Supplier shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Supplier,) forthwith become due and payable.
7.6 The Supplier will maintain comprehensive insurance cover to cover the Equipment whilst it is on the Supplier’s premises and until risk has passed to the Client.

8.4 The Supplier’s liabilities under this warranty shall be limited to making available free of charge the labour and materials required to make good any failure to perform the Repairs with reasonable skill and care but shall be limited to the original value of the Repairs provided or the cost of replacing the parts (or the part in question), or (at the Supplier’s option) refunding the full Payment and the warranty shall only apply to the original Repairs and shall not be extended by any additional work carried out or parts supplied in accordance with this clause. To claim under this warranty, the Client shall deliver the Equipment to the Supplier at the Client’s expense.
