F. Any description of any of its goods by ALLOY MOTOR ACCESSORIES, whether contained in any quotation or any other document or pamphlet, or given verbally, shall not constitute any contract of sale by description, even where a sample of the goods have been exhibited to and inspected by the Buyer. Any sample is exhibited, and Buyers acknowledge that any sample is inspected by them solely to enable Buyers to judge the quality of the goods and not so as to constitute a sale by sample.
The only conditions, warranties, representations or statements which are binding on the Company are those which are set out in this Quotation or required by law to be binding on the Company. Insofar as it is lawful so to do all conditions and warranties whether expressed or implied by law, and all representations and statements which would otherwise be binding on the Company are expressly excluded. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing unless responsibility is specifically accepted in writing the Company, or the Company is required so to do by law, the Company does not give any warranty expressed or implied, as to the correctness of design or suitability of material for the use of the articles intended by the Buyer.
All information offered in any documents or leaflets, or given verbally, is offered in good faith as a service for your consideration, adaptation and verification, ALLOY MOTOR ACCESSORIES accepts no responsibility or liability therefore.
Any times quoted for delivery (fitting) are estimates only and the company shall not be liable for failure to deliver or any delay in delivery (fitting) arising from any cause whatever beyond the Company’s control. The Buyer shall not be relieved of any obligation to accept or pay for goods by reason of any delay in delivery (fitting) or despatch. The company reserves the right to deliver by instalments, and each instalment shall not entitle the Buyer to repudiate the contract. The Company shall not be responsible for any loss or damage occurring after the goods have been delivered (fitted). Unless otherwise agreed to, the goods shall be delivered by the Company to the place of business of the Buyer.
The Company shall warrant prices for a period of 30 days from the date of quotation. The Company reserves the right to revise its prices at any time prior to despatching any order beyond this 30 day period. The prices quoted are based on the Company’s list prices and/or cost of labour and materials ruling at the time of the Contract; any variation for the Buyer’s account. All prices quoted are inclusive of Sales Tax now in force or to be enacted.
The Company reserves the right to request a deposit of funds on order placement.

The Company reserves the right to refuse the use of credit cards and/or charge a financial administration fee in the amount of 2.5% of the total invoice value for the use of such cards in settlement of invoices.
All claims in respect of goods sold must be lodged with the Company within 7 days after delivery. The return of goods will not be accepted unless the Company shall first have proved to its satisfaction that the goods are defective due to faulty material or workmanship and unless the goods are returned, freight paid by the Buyer and free from damage, soiling and wear and tear and including an invoice/credit note reference, within 14 days of delivery. No claim shall in any event exceed the contract price as the specified item in respect of which a claim shall arise. In particular the company shall not be liable for any consequential loss or damage suffered by the Buyer. All damage above such contract price shall be borne by the Buyer. The Company reserves the right to replace returned goods or credit the value of such goods less any freight costs at its sole discretion. Where goods are non-stock items or items that have been modified at the Buyer’s request the Company will not offer a credit option on claims. The existence of a claim or intention to make a claim does not represent a waiver for the Buyer to meet obligations in respect of payments that may be due to the Company for supply of goods either subject to claim or otherwise.
The Company shall offer an extended warranty against defects in goods due to faulty material or workmanship. This warranty specifically excludes fitness for purpose which remains the Buyer’s obligation to determine prior to delivery (fitting) and also excludes defects attributable to incorrect fitting of goods where such fitting is undertaken by the Buyer or a Third Party and excludes where the goods are altered, modified or have been subject to any unusual or non-recommended use, servicing or handling. In addition, this warranty specifically excludes claims for consequential damages to vehicles, vehicle systems, other vehicle components and voidance of vehicle warranties arising from and as a result of fitting custom items requested by the Customer.
