A Quote is valid for 14 days from the date of issue.

Unless otherwise stated, Prices quoted by the Supplier are exclusive of GST, discounts and/or delivery charges. Unless otherwise agreed between the Supplier and Customer, an Invoice will be issued to the Customer after the Goods have been delivered to ensure that accurate delivery and packaging costs are invoiced.

The Supplier is not liable for any loss, damage or delay whether direct or indirect arising from late delivery or non-delivery of Goods. The Supplier may at its discretion deliver the Goods to the Customer in any number of instalments unless the Customer has specifically requested no instalment delivery of the Goods. If any of the Goods delivered by instalment are defective for any reason, the defective instalment shall be a severable breach and shall not constitute grounds for termination of the contract of sale in respect of the Goods.

Any claims will be limited to the value of Goods supplied. Acceptance of the Goods by the Customer, waives any future rights to claims of damage against the Supplier to the maximum extent permitted by law.
