Supply of goods and services

We accept no responsibility for loss or damage which you or a third party may sustain relating to goods manufactured to our design but used in any way for which the goods were not designed.

All building materials remain the property of E J Manufacture Ltd until fully paid for. E J Manufacture Ltd reserves the right to remove any installed goods from the area of works until payment is received in full.

We may withdraw our quotation, and withhold delivery of any goods if your account is outstanding to an extent which we regard as unreasonable or for any other reason which gives us doubts about your ability to pay.

When you engage E J Manufacture Ltd to supply materials, goods or services it is your responsibility to provide accurate information. E J Manufacture Ltd will not be held liable for inaccurate information supplied to us and will seek remuneration on all costs expended.

Delivery of goods and products

Prices for delivery of goods and products will be supplied by quotation. For supply-only goods delivery is not included unless specified.

If we deliver the Goods to you to such place as you direct within the United Kingdom risk of loss or damage passes to you when the Goods are delivered by us to the place agreed between us. If the Goods are to be collected from our premises that risk passes to you when the Goods are loaded onto your or your carrier’s vehicle.

We may deliver by part-deliveries

Each part-delivery will be a separate and independent Contract but you may not cancel the rest of the Contract if we are late or fail to deliver any part.

You will accept a delivery within 7 days of being advised that the Goods are ready. Otherwise, we may charge you interest at the rate of 1.5 per cent per month and make a storage charge of 1 per cent per month on the invoice value of the Goods.

You must inspect and sign for the Goods when they are delivered. Any defects are notified as soon as reasonably practical. No claims will be accepted for damage, shortage or loss unless written notice of such claims is received within a reasonable timescale.

We will not be responsible for any loss caused by late delivery. Late delivery does not affect your duty to pay us.

If you cancel your order we may recover all our costs up to the date when we receive your notice of cancellation.

If you should have a receiver appointed over any of your assets or if an order is made or a resolution passed for your winding up or if you commit an act of bankruptcy or become bankrupt we will be entitled to remove any Goods which have not been paid for in full.

Where you claim that the Goods are defective or do not conform to your order specifications you must inform us in writing within a reasonable timescale of receipt of the Goods and allow us the opportunity to inspect and test the Goods.

If there is a dispute about the satisfactory quality of goods and an assessor is to be appointed, both parties should agree to the assessor. The assessor will provide a report stating who is at fault, with the loser to pay the assessors fees. If the assessor states that the product or fitter is to blame then E J Manufacture Ltd will do their utmost to rectify.
