Any quotation made by Locker is not an offer to sell and no order given in pursuance of any quotation shall bind Locker until accepted by it in writing or by the commencement of the supply of the goods the subject of the order.
2. CANCELLATION OF ORDERS
Once placed, no order may be cancelled by the customer except in writing and then only with the prior written consent of Locker, which Locker may withhold at its discretion and without being required to give a reason.
Quotations are subject to revision without notice. All prices quoted are exclusive of GST unless otherwise stated.
4. RETENTION OF TITLE
Title in the goods delivered remains with Locker until Locker has received payment in full of all money owing by the customer and if payment is not made by the due date Locker shall, without prejudice to any other remedies available to it, be entitled to retake possession of the goods and hold them until payment in full has been received or to resell the goods and to recover the deficiency on resale plus costs of repossession from the customer. For so long as title in the goods remains with Locker, the customer will hold the goods as bailee for Locker, and if the customer sells the goods, the proceeds of sale thereof are held on trust for Locker, and if payment for the goods is not made on a due date, Locker or its authorised agents have the right to enter the customer’s premises or other premises in which the goods are located to take possession of the goods. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all intellectual property rights in the goods and associated trademarks and drawings shall always remain the property of Locker.
To the extent permitted by the Personal Property Securities Act (“PPSA”), the customer has no right to receive a notice of removal of an accession under the PPSA; has no right to retain an accession under the PPSA; waives its right to receive notice of a certification or financing charge statement; and agrees that the provisions of chapter 4 of the PPSA are excluded.
Risk in the goods shall pass to the customer upon delivery. The customer must insure the goods from the time of delivery to the customer and, pending payment in full, insure the goods in the names of Locker and the customer for their respective interests. Any materials supplied by the customer to Locker are supplied at the customer’s risk in all respects.
(a) All orders and contracts are accepted and agreements entered into subject to Acts of God, strikes, lockouts, accidents and all other causes beyond Locker’s control.
(b) The goods shall be collected by the customer at, or dispatched from, the Locker premises specified in the quotation. Locker has the right to make partial deliveries against the customer’s purchase order and to invoice each partial delivery separately.
(c) The goods shall be deemed to have been delivered to the customer when collected by the customer or loaded on to the carrier’s vehicle at Locker’s premises (notwithstanding that Locker may have engaged the carrier).
Goods should be examined on arrival and any apparent damage or loss endorsed on the carrier’s receipt. A detailed claim in writing for any damage or loss must be received by the carrier and Locker within five (5) working days of the date of Locker’s delivery docket. All claims and notifications must be sent by recorded delivery. Failure to comply with these conditions may invalidate any claim, at Locker’s discretion.
8. PAYMENT TERMS
Payment for goods purchased from Locker must be on a cash with order basis, following which Locker will issue a tax invoice to the customer. However, if any approved account has been established with Locker, payment must be received by the last working day in the calendar month following the month in which Locker issues its tax invoice.
If the customer fails to pay the amount due to Locker on or before the due date, then Locker shall have the following rights in addition to any other rights it may have.
(a) To charge interest on the amount owing as from the due date for payment until the date payment is made at the rate of 1.5% per month or part thereof; and
(b) To cancel orders or to suspend deliveries to the customer whether under the contract in respect of which payment is overdue or otherwise until all amounts due, including interest payable thereon, have been received.
The customer shall indemnify Locker against all costs, losses and damages (including but not limited to legal costs on a solicitor/client basis, accounting costs and loss of profit) incurred or suffered by Locker as a result of such default and actions taken by Locker in respect of the same.
