TERMS & CONDITIONS

A) Conditions Apply

Unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing by Spartan Safety Limited all quotations and contracts for the supply of goods by Spartan Safety Limited are made upon these Conditions of Sale (“the Conditions”) which shall all times override any terms and conditions with the Purchaser of such goods (“the Purchaser”) imposes or seeks to impose.

Quotations are valid for a maximum period of 30 days, from the date which appears on the quotation.

B) Account Terms

For Non-Account customers, payment can be made by bank transfer, cash, cheque (in case of payment by cheque, goods will be shipped subject to cleared funds) or credit or debit card, with the order or on collection.

A 30 days credit facility (from the date of invoice) is available on completion of a credit account application form and subject to satisfactory references).

All credit accounts are subject to periodic reviews without prior notice. In case of default, Spartan Safety Limited may, without notice to the Purchaser (even if the Purchaser has a contract with a third party):

a) Terminate any outstanding orders or quotations

b) Withhold and or suspend supplies; or

c) Reduce the Purchaser’s credit limit.

There may be occasion when Spartan Safety may be unable to ship your entire order as a single consignment. This may be due to multiple factors which are outside the control of Spartan Safety. If such a situation does arise, Spartan Safety reserve the right to both part ship and part invoice your order. This in turn means that you may receive multiple consignments and invoices in respect of a single order. In these instances, the purchaser must make payment for each invoice as per the agreed payment terms until the order is paid in full, unless otherwise expressed in writing.

C) V.A.T.

Value Added Tax is not included in the price or quotation

D) Prices

Prices charged will be those ruling at date of despatch. All goods are subject to availability. Spartan Safety reserve the right to increase or decrease prices at any time and while we will endeavour to advise of any price changes beforehand, it may not always be possible to do so.

E) Carriage

Although Spartan Safety Ltd, offer a next working day and or a Saturday delivery service (a Saturday delivery service we be provided at an additional cost which we will advise you at the time of your enquiry), we will endeavour to fully inform you of delivery schedules. However any dates that are specified for the delivery of goods are approximate and we cannot be held liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused by any delay for delivery of your item(s) as this is sometimes outside our control.

A signature is required at the time of delivery, therefore it is essential to have someone available to accept the delivery. In the event that no one is available, the carriers will leave a card with further instructions including details on how to reschedule the delivery and or how to collect from your local depot. In some instances, if you supply a contact number for the recipient of the order, we may advise our couriers of the same. The courier may possible contact the recipient via SMS or may call them to advise them of the status of their delivery.

Goods returned to Spartan Safety Ltd will incur further carriage costs and also re-stocking charges.

F) 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 Spartan Safety Limited 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 Spartan Safety Limited 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 Spartan Safety Limited 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 Spartan Safety Limited is paid all monies outstanding in full, the relationship of the buyer to Spartan Safety Limited 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 Spartan Safety Limited shall have the right to trace the proceeds thereof.
