Terms and Conditions
Although we try our hardest to fulfill all of our orders within 1-3 working days, sometimes there may be delays due to unforseen circumstances. If this is the case we will try to inform you as soon as possible and get the issue resolved. Unfortunately we cannot offer a refunded delivery cost if the order isn’t received within the 1-3 working days.
In these Terms and Conditions ( Terms ), the following words and phrases shall have the following meanings:
“the Buyer” means the person, firm or company who purchases the Goods from the Company;
“the Company” means grassmats.co.uk;
“Contract” means the contract between the Company and the Buyer which shall be deemed to incorporate these Terms;
“Goods” means any goods agreed in the Contract to be supplied by the Company to the Buyer;
“Place of Delivery” means the place to which the Goods are to be delivered.
In these Terms, reference to any statute or statutory provision shall be construed as a reference to such statute or statutory provision as amended, modified, re-enacted or replaced from time-to-time.
2. The Contract
The Contract shall be on these Terms to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions, including any such terms and conditions that are purported to be included or applied by the Buyer. No terms and conditions contained in the confirmation of order, purchase order or other document of the Buyer will form part of the Contract.
Delivery of the Goods shall be made by the Customer collecting the Goods at the Company’s premises at any time after the Company has notified the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection or, if some other place for delivery is agreed by the Company, by the Company delivering the Goods to that place.
Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are intended to be an estimate and the time for delivery shall not be made the essence by notice. If no date is specified delivery shall be within a reasonable time. The Company shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods howsoever caused.
Subject to the other provisions of these conditions the Company shall not be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential loss (all three of which terms include, without limitation, pure economic loss, loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill and similar loss), costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the Goods (even if caused by the Company’s negligence), nor shall any delay entitle the Customer to terminate or rescind the Contract unless such delay exceeds 180 days.
Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Company to delivery any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Conditions or any claim by the Customer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Customer to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
If the Customer fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give the Company adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (otherwise than by reason of any cause beyond the Customer’s reasonable control or by reason of the Company’s fault) then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Company, the Company may:
• assign the risk in the Goods to the Customer (including for loss or damage caused by the Company’s negligence);
• deem the Goods to have been delivered; and
• store the Goods until delivery, whereupon the Customer shall be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage and insurance); or
• sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to the Customer for the excess over the price under the Contract or charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price under the Contract.
The Customer will provide at its expense at the Delivery Point adequate and appropriate equipment and manual labour for unloading the Goods.
4. Risk in and Ownership of the Goods
Risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer on delivery;
Ownership in the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until the Company has received in full in cleared funds all sums due to the Company in respect of the Goods and all other sums which are or may become due to the Company from the Buyer on any account.
Until ownership of the Goods has passed to the Buyer, the Buyer shall:
hold the Goods on a fiduciary basis as the Company’s bailee;
store the Goods separately from all other goods of the Buyer or any third party in such a way that they remain identifiable as the Company’s property;
not destroy or deface any identifying mark on the Goods or their packaging;
maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition insured with the Company’s interest noted on the policy and hold any proceeds of such insurance on trust for the Company and not mix them with any other money.
The price for the Goods shall, unless otherwise agreed, be the price set out on the date of delivery in the Company’s price list. The price for the Goods shall be exclusive of all costs of carriage and insurance and applicable VAT which the Buyer shall pay in addition. The Buyer shall pay such deposit as the Company shall direct.
Subject to paragraph 5, payment of the price of the Goods shall be due 30 days from the date of the Company’s invoice for the Goods. Payment shall not be deemed to have taken place until the receipt by the Company of cleared funds.
The Company warrants that the Goods are of satisfactory quality. If the Buyer wishes to make a claim under this warranty, the Buyer shall give written notice to the Company within 30 days of the discovery of the defect and give the Company a reasonable opportunity to inspect the Goods in question. The Company shall not be liable for any breach of warranty if the Buyer makes any further use of the Goods after giving such notice or alters or repairs the Goods without the agreement of the Company. The Company’s liability under the warranty shall be limited to repairing or replacing the Goods in question or refunding the price of such Goods.
8. Limitation of Liability
The Company’s liability in contract, tort or otherwise arising out of the subject matter of the Contract shall not exceed £500,000 and the Company shall under no circumstances be liable to the Buyer for any consequential, indirect or economic loss or damages.
9. Force Majeure
If either party is subject to an event of Force Majeure, that is circumstances outside its reasonable control, including but not limited to war, fire, industrial disputes or civil commotion, it shall notify the other and the first party’s obligations under these Terms shall be suspended until it notifies the other party of the end of such event of Force Majeure.#
If any part of these Terms is found to be void or unenforceable by any Court of competent jurisdiction, such part shall be severed from these Terms which will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
The Company reserves the right to charge the full asking price for cancelled orders. Cancellations may be accepted at the discretion of the company – charges may apply. All cancellations must be submitted in writing by the customer and will only be accepted once acknowledged by Grassmats Ltd in writing.
These Terms shall be governed by and interpreted according to English Law and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts
