- Provision of Goods and Services
1.1 You have requested Goods and/or Services from us in an Order. You agree that these terms and conditions of sale apply to all Orders.
1.2 No additional conditions you may have included in an Order will apply unless confirmed by us in writing.
1.3 An Order may not be withdrawn unless agreed by us in writing and, if agreed to by us in writing, will be subject to payment by you of all costs, expenses and losses incurred by us as a result of such withdrawal (as reasonably determined by us).
1.4 We may require you to provide at least one credit reference acceptable to us prior to us providing you with any Goods and/or Services.
1.5 You acknowledge that all information including, but not limited to, all specifications, illustrations, dimensions and weights furnished by us or otherwise contained in any catalogues, price lists or other advertising matter are approximate only.
- Withholding Supply
2.1 We reserve the right, irrespective of whether or not an Order has been accepted by us, and without notice to you, to withhold supply to you, and we will not be liable for any costs, expenses, losses or damages resulting directly or indirectly from such action, where:
(a) we have insufficient Goods to fulfill the Order or the Goods ordered have been discontinued; or
(b) we have determined, in our absolute discretion, that credit should not or no longer be extended to you.
- Payment, Deposit and Default
3.1 Unless we otherwise agree in writing:
(a) Payment for Goods must be made prior to Delivery of Goods.
(b) Payment for installation and general service work is due within 7 days of the date of our invoice.
3.2 We require payment of a 35% Deposit prior to us ordering any Goods or providing any Services. You agree that any deposit is non-refundable.
3.3 Unless otherwise specified in our invoice, all prices are in New Zealand dollars and are exclusive of Goods and Services Tax, which you must pay when invoiced.
3.4 If you:
(a) do not pay any amount owed to us on the due date; or
(b) fail to fulfill your obligations under this Agreement or otherwise breach any term of this Agreement,
we may, without notice to you, immediately suspend the delivery of Goods and/or the provision of Services and we will not be liable for any costs, expenses, losses or damages resulting directly or indirectly from such action.
3.5 If any amount which you owe us falls overdue for payment, such late or non payment shall constitute a breach of your obligations under this Agreement and the overdue amount shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy under this Agreement) bear default interest from the date on which payment of that amount falls overdue until the date on which payment of the overdue amount is made in full. Default interest shall be calculated daily at the Default Interest Rate and shall be compounded monthly.
- Prices, Delivery, Risk and Title
4.1 You acknowledge that our price lists for the supply of Goods are:
(a) based on manufacturers' prices, costs of freight and exchange rates current as at the date of our latest price list. If any of those costs increase prior to the date of Delivery, or if there is any miscalculation on the face of an invoice, the prices stated in the invoice may be increased/amended accordingly;
(b) inclusive of the cost of delivering the Goods to us from the manufacturer by sea freight. If you choose a different method of delivery of the Goods to us, the prices stated in our invoice may be increased/amended accordingly;
(c) exclusive of the cost of Delivery.
4.2 Risk in the Goods will pass to you on Delivery. Title to the Goods remains with us until payment in full of all amounts owed by you to us in cleared funds has been received by us. Until payment has been received and title passes, the Goods will be held by you on bailment and be kept separate and identifiable.
4.3 If we arrange for Delivery and any Goods are lost or damaged before risk passes to you, we will, at our option, replace, repair, or give credit for the Goods provided that you have notified us within 7 days of Delivery (in the case of damaged or short delivery) or the intended date of Delivery (in the case of non-delivery of all of the Goods).
4.4 Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Agreement, while we will use reasonable endeavours to comply with your particular Delivery requirements and Order specifications, you will not be entitled to cancel the whole or part of your Order or to claim compensation by reason of our failure to comply with your Delivery requirements (including the date of Delivery) or any minor variations to the Goods as a result of changes to the specifications, dimensions or weight of those Goods.
- Security Interest
5.1 You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement constitutes a security agreement for the purposes of the PPSA and we retain a purchase money security interest in all Goods to secure our interest in the Goods and all moneys owing or payable by you under this Agreement. All Goods sold to you are sold subject to a security interest in favour of us and we have the right to call for or recover the Goods at our option and you are obliged to deliver up the Goods if so directed by us.
5.2 Our security interest in the Goods:
(a) continues in any new goods into which those goods are attached, fixed or incorporated; and
(b) extends to any proceeds, book debts and accounts receivable arising from selling the Goods.
5.3 You waive any right to receive verification that our security interest in the Goods has been registered on the Personal Property Securities Register and agree that where relevant, the following sections of the PPSA are not applicable to this agreement, sections 114(1)(a), 116, 117(1)(c), 119, 120(2), 121, 125, 126, 127, 129 and 131 to 134 (inclusive).

5.5 You irrevocably authorise us and our employees and agents to enter any premises occupied by you on which Goods are situated at any time after any breach of this Agreement by you (or before a breach if we reasonably believe a breach is likely to occur) and to remove and repossess any Goods and any other property to which Goods are attached or in which such goods are incorporated. We shall not be liable for, and you agree to indemnify us for, any costs, damages, expenses or losses incurred by you or any third party as a result of this action, or liability either in contract or in tort or otherwise in any way whatsoever. We may either:
(a) resell any repossessed Goods and credit the your account with the net proceeds of sale (after deduction of all repossession, storage, selling and other costs); or
(b) retain any repossessed goods and credit your account with the invoice value less such sum as we reasonably determine on account of wear and tear, depreciation, obsolescence, loss of profit and costs.
