TERMS AND CONDITIONS
VALIDITY OF QUOTATIONS
Unless stated otherwise, prices quoted are valid for acceptance for a period of 30 days. Prices are subject to periodic review and in light of fluctuations in exchange rates and raw material costs.`
The environmental and economic costs of small orders are of concern to all companies and, in order to encourage customers to reduce these, there is a small order surcharge of £8.00 for all orders under £350.00 (exc VAT); otherwise carriage is paid (UK mainland only). Both goods and carriage are subject to V.A.T. at the current rate.
Unless stated otherwise, all export quotations are Ex Works. Where delivery is shown as being included, on payment or otherwise, no responsibility is accepted for import clearance and payment of taxes and/or import duty.
DELIVERY / LEAD TIMES
Any delivery / lead time stated is an estimate only based on current workload and capacity and cannot be guaranteed in the event of any delay in ordering.
For approved customers our settlement terms are: payment by the end of the month following date of invoice. Otherwise payment is by Pro Forma Invoice or Credit/Debit Card. All goods supplied shall remain the property of Bennett Safetywear Limited until all accounts receivable have been paid in full.
All quotations and invoices are in Sterling (GBP) unless stated otherwise.
Returns of standard items may be accepted for credit provided they are received, carriage paid, unused and in their original packing; the return of "specials"/non-standard items and the refund of carriage charges will not normally be entertained unless we are at fault.
