Goods in respect of which the Buyer shall only be entitled to the benefit of any such warranty or guarantee as is given by
the manufacturer to the Seller. If the Goods are second hand, no warranty is given by the Seller unless expressly agreed in
writing between the Seller and the Buyer.


1.2 For Goods which have been serviced by the Seller, the Seller warrants that the Goods will be free from defects in
workmanship for a period of 30 days or for the number of the average hours used by a machine from the date of delivery
whichever is sooner during which time the Seller will rectify any fault or failure free of charge. After this period of time the
Seller reserves the right to charge for any repairs.

carried out in the warranty period or outside the warranty period in 10.1 and 10.2 above.

specification supplied by the Buyer;

  • 1.4.2 the Seller shall be under no liability in respect of any defect arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage,

negligence, abnormal working conditions, failure to follow the Seller’s instructions (whether oral or in Writing),
misuse or alteration or repair of the Goods without the Seller’s approval;

guarantee) if the total price for the Goods has not been paid by the due date for payment.

Act 1979) and fit for any purpose made known to the Seller in Writing at the time of placing the order, will correspond with

their failure to meet specification is notified to the Seller in accordance with these Terms, the Seller may replace the Goods
(or the part in question) free of charge or, at the Seller’s sole discretion, refund to the Buyer the price of the Goods (or a
proportionate part of the price), in which case the Seller shall have no further liability to the Buyer. Where it is able to do so
but without any obligation and at its own expense, the Seller will provide alternative Goods for the Buyer’s use while the

Contract or at all) or their use or resale by the Buyer.
1.8.3 The entire liability of the Seller under or in connection with the Contract shall not exceed the price of the Goods,
except as expressly provided in these Terms.


1.9 The warranty in clause 10.1 is only available in respect of work carried out by the Seller to parts supplied by the Seller.
Any customer or third party labour on parts will invalidate the warranty and will not be admissible in a warranty claim
unless carried out by an authorised manufacturer’s dealer.


1.10 The Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer or be deemed to be in breach of the Contract by reason of any delay in
performing, or any failure to perform, any of the Seller’s obligations in relation to the Goods, if the delay or failure was due
