We will use our best endeavours to despatch on the date given but will accept no liability for failure to do so. Should despatch be delayed by strikes, lockouts, fire, accidents, defective materials or any course whatsoever beyond our reasonable control and whether accruing at our works or elsewhere, a reasonable extension of time should be granted. We would always encourage clients to view the furniture before despatch to ensure complete satisfaction.
(2) Storage and Insurance
If for any reason whatsoever goods are left on our hands after the agreed delivery date, or such time goods are ready for despatch where no such delivery date has been agreed on, we shall have the right to charge storage and insurance on such goods in addition to invoicing the whole. The carriage charge quoted includes one delivery charge only to UK mainland destination. For other delivery requirements please check with us first, as a supplementary charge may be applicable.
(3) Terms of Payment
In spite of delivery having been made, title of the goods shall not pass from the seller (Bampton Design Ltd) until the buyer has paid for the goods in full, including any VAT charge. 50% deposit is applicable on all orders; the remaining balance will be payable on delivery. All export orders must be paid for in full before delivery. We have the statutory right to charge interest on late payments.
Goods are not tested or sold as fit for any particular purpose. Any term warranty or condition expressed, implied or statutory to the contrary excluded. In no circumstance shall sellers liability (in contract tort or otherwise) to the buyer arising out of or in connection with this contract of the goods supplied exceed the invoice price of the particular piece(s) in regard to which the complaint is made.
Until payment passes from the buyer in accordance with clause (3), the buyer shall hold the goods and each of them on a fiduciary basis and bailee the seller. The buyer shall store the goods at no cost to the seller; they shall be stored separately from all other goods in its perception and marked in such a way that they are identified as the seller's property.
No purported variation of these terms shall be effected unless the same shall specifically be agreed in writing by Bampton Design Ltd and without prejudice to the generality to this clause no terms printed out written on any accepted by the customer shall have any effect on the terms hereby set out.
