Account Terms - Nett Monthly

V.A.T. - Value Added Tax is not included in the price.

Prices - Prices charged will be those ruling at date of despatch. All goods subject to availability.

Carriage - The company reserves the right to negotiate carriage charges for any order to a total value less than £50 (excluding VAT) or to be delivered in emergency circumstances.

Retention of Title - All products are at the risk of the Purchaser from the time they are delivered. Title to the goods shall remain with Bunzl UK Limited trading as National Safety Supplies ("The Company") and only passes to the Purchaser when full payment for the goods has been received together with full payment of all other amounts owed by the buyer to the Company in respect of any other contracts for the sale of goods. Such payment shall become due immediately upon the commencement of any act or proceeding in which the buyer's solvency is involved. If payment is overdue in whole or in part the Company may (without prejudice to any of its other rights) recover or resell the goods or any of them and may enter upon the buyer's premises by its servants or agents for that purpose. Until the Company is paid in full all monies outstanding the relationship of the buyer to the Company shall be fiduciary in respect of the goods or other goods in which they are incorporated or used and if the same are sold by the buyer the Company shall have the right to trace the proceeds thereof.

Non Delivery - Claims for non delivery must be made in writing to The Company within 10 days of date of despatch shown on invoice.

Damage or Short Delivery - Damage/shortages must be noted on Carriers Delivery Sheet immediately and notice in writing given to The Company within 3 days of receipt of goods.

Return of Goods - No goods (other than goods which reach the customers in an unusable condition) may be returned without the prior written consent of he Company. Where The Company consents to such return, the goods must be received from the customer in good condition, and the customer agrees to pay an administrative handling charge of 20% of the invoice value of the goods returned. It is our normal practice to replace any merchandise which might reach customers in an unusable condition. No handling charge will be made under these circumstances. It would help if goods which are being returned to us for examination prior to replacement, are thoroughly cleaned and adequately packed before despatch.

Specification - The customer's attention is specifically drawn to the manufacturers' brochures and safety literature in respect of the correct use and application of products which The Company may supply. The customer shall be wholly responsible for checking that such products are entirely appropriate for the use and application to which they may be put. The specification and description of the goods in our catalogues have been supplied by manufacturers and were correct to the best of the Company's knowledge at the time of going to press. In view of the rights claimed by manufacturers to change specification without notice and whilst all reasonable care is taken to ensure that due notification of such change is given customers are advised to check the exact specification of all goods PRIOR TO ORDER where variations will be material to performance.

Liability (limits and exclusions) - Nothing in these terms and conditions of sale shall limit or exclude the Company’s liability for: death or personal injury caused by its negligence, or the negligence of its employees, agents or subcontractors (as applicable); fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979; defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987; or any matter in respect of which it would be unlawful for us to exclude or restrict liability. In all other cases, the Company shall under no circumstances whatever be liable to the Purchaser, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any loss of profit, or any indirect or consequential loss arising under or in connection with the goods/services sold; and the Company’s total liability to the Purchaser in respect of all other losses arising under or in connection with the goods/services sold, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall in no circumstances exceed the price paid (or payable) for the goods in question giving rise to the potential claim.

Any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with these terms and conditions (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, English law, and the parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
