BASIS OF SALE
These Terms and the Order [and our price list] are considered by us to set out the whole agreement between you and us for the sale of the Goods.

Any samples, drawings, descriptions or advertising we issue, and any descriptions or illustrations contained in our catalogues or brochures, are issued or published solely to provide you with an approximate idea of the Goods they describe. They do not form part of the contract between you and us or any other contract between you and us for the sale of the Goods.
These Terms shall become binding on you and us when:we issue you with written acceptance of an Order (Order Confirmation); or we notify you that the Goods are ready.
We warrant that on delivery and for a period of 12 months from the date of delivery, the Goods shall:- Conform in all material respects with their description subject to any qualification or representation contained in the brochures, advertisements or other documentation; be of satisfactory quality; be fit for any purpose we say the Goods are fit for or for any reasonable purpose for which you use the Goods, be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship; and comply with all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements for selling the Goods in the United Kingdom.

We will deliver the Goods to you as stipulated on the Order form. Delivery of the Order shall be completed when we deliver the Goods to you. If you fail to take delivery of an Order within 5 calendar days of the date on the Order form then, except where this failure is caused by our failure to comply with these Terms or by an event beyond your control: we will store the Goods until delivery takes place and may charge you a reasonable sum currently [£15] a day to cover expenses and insurance. We shall have no liability to you for late delivery.
If you have not taken delivery of the Goods within two weeks of our notifying you that they are ready, we may dispose of part or all of the Goods and charge you for reasonable storage and insurance charges and for the cost of the Goods as stipulated in the Order form.
