2. Conditions Applicable
2.1 These Conditions shall apply to all contracts for the sale of Goods or Services by the Company to the Buyer, to the
      exclusion of all other terms and conditions, including any terms or conditions which the Buyer may purport to apply
      under any purchase order, confirmation of order, or similar document.
2.2 All orders for Goods or Services shall be deemed to be an offer by the Buyer to purchase Goods or Services pursuant
      to these Conditions.
2.3 Acceptance of delivery of Goods or Services shall be deemed conclusive evidence of the Buyer's acceptance of these
2.4 Any variation to these Conditions, including any special terms and conditions agreed between the Company and the 
      Buyer, shall be inapplicable unless agreed in writing by the Managing Director of the Company.

3. Severance - any Condition, which is, or maybe, void or unenforceable, shall, to the extent of such invalidity or
    unenforceability, be deemed severable and shall not affect any other Condition.

4. Price and Payment
4.1 The Price shall be the Company's quoted price. The Price is exclusive of VAT which shall be due at the rate prevailing,
       as set by each relevant country, on the date of the Company's invoice. 
4.2 The Company may, by giving notice to the Buyer at any time up to 7 days before delivery of any Goods or Services, 
       increase the Price of Either, to reflect any increases in the cost to the Company, owing to factors occurring after the
       making of the contract of sale, which are beyond the reasonable control of the Company including, but not limited to,
       foreign exchange fluctuations, taxes, duties, the cost of labour, materials and other manufacturing costs.
4.3 Payment of the Price and VAT, if relevant, shall be due following the presentation of the Company's invoice. In the case
      of Goods purchases, full payment is required before, or at the time of, any Goods being despatched or collected.
4.4 For bespoke Goods requested by the Buyer to be manufactured, or for Goods requiring complex machining processes,
      involving considerable labour content, before they can be made available to the Buyer, the Company reserves the right
      to request a deposit before any work commences. In such circumstances, an invoice, including VAT if applicable,
      representing the total value of the completed Goods, will be presented to the Buyer. The Buyer will be expected to pay
      an agreed percentage of the invoice. Once payment has been made, the Company will proceed to manufacture the
      Goods. On completion of the Goods, the Company will ask the Buyer to pay the outstanding value of the invoice.
4.5 When the Buyer is paying the Company by means of electronic banking transfers, if the Buyer is given the option for
      payment of route fees, or other similar banking transfer fees, to be paid either by the Buyer or the Company, in all cases
      any such fees must always be paid by the Buyer.
4.6 Payment Security - as a matter of normal business practice, the Company rarely, if ever, changes its bankers or bank 
      details. The Company's bank details are clearly shown on its estimates and invoices. The Company takes cyber
      security issues very seriously and recognises that emails can be intercepted and used illegally by fraudsters.
      Consequently, the Company will never notify a Buyer of a change in its bank details by email. If a Buyer ever receives
      an email of this nature supposedly from the Company, the Buyer must contact the Company immediately. The Company
      will not accept any responsibility whatsoever for the actions of a Buyer if that Buyer makes payments to an incorrect

5. The Goods or Services - the quantity and description of the Goods or Services shall be as set-out in the Company's 
     quotations or estimates.

6.1 The Company warrants that the Goods or Services supplied will, at the time of delivery, correspond with the description
      given by the Company. Except where the Buyer is dealing as a consumer, as defined in the Unfair Contract Terms Act
      1977, Section 12, and, or the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999, Regulation 3.1, all other
      warranties, conditions or terms relating to fitness for purpose, quality or condition of the Goods or Services, whether
      expressed or implied by statute, common-law, or otherwise, are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
6.2 In the event of any breach of these Conditions by the Company, the remedy of the Buyer shall be limited to damages.
      Under no circumstances shall the liability of the Company ever exceed the Price of the Goods or Services.

7. Delivery of the Goods and Services
7.1 The Goods shall be delivered to the buyer at the address given by the Buyer and confirmed on the Company's quotation
      or estimate. The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer upon the delivery taking place. The Services shall normally be
      delivered to the Buyer at the Company's registered office. Services may be delivered at the Buyer's requested location, 
      by prior arrangement with the management of the Company. As and when necessary, Services may also be delivered
      on, near, or by, public highways, for circumstances such as vehicle breakdowns or when the Company is supporting live
      events and rallies.
7.2 If the Buyer requests and the Company so agrees, the Company shall arrange for carriage of any Goods to the Buyer's
      address, or as the Buyer may reasonably request, subject always to the proviso that the costs of carriage and any
      insurance which the Buyer requests the Company to incur, shall be reimbursed by the Buyer, without any set-off or other
      withholding whatsoever, and shall be due on the date for payment of the Price. The carrier shall be deemed to be the
      Buyer's agent.
7.3 The Company may deliver the Goods or Services by separate instalments. The Company may raise a separate invoice
      and require payment of each instalment. The failure of the Buyer to take delivery, or to pay for any one or more of the
      said instalments of the Goods or Services on the due date, shall entitle the Company, at the sole option of the Company,
      without notice to;
7.3.1 suspend further deliveries of the Goods or Services pending payment by the Buyer; and/or
7.3.2 treat the contract as repudiated by the Buyer.

8. Title and Risk Ownership - the title and risk ownership of any Goods or Services shall not pass to the Buyer, or any
    Sub-Buyer, until they are fully paid for, but the risk in the Goods shall be borne by the Buyer from the date of delivery by
    the Company, or its agents, to the Buyer, or as the Buyer may direct.

9. Intellectual Property - the specification and design of any Goods, including the copyright, design right, or other
    intellectual property in them, shall, as between the Company and the Buyer, be the property of the Company. Where any
    designs or specifications of any Goods have been supplied by the Buyer, for manufacture by the Company, or to the
    order of the Buyer, then the Buyer warrants that the use of those designs, or specification for the manufacture,
    processing, assembly, or supply of the Goods, shall not infringe the rights of any third-party.

10. Return of Goods
10.1 No Goods delvered to the Buyer, which are in accordance with the contract, will be accepted for return without the
        prior written approval of the Company, given by the Managing Director of the Company, on terms to be determined at
        the absolute discretion of the Company. Under no circumstances will bespoke, manufactured Goods be considered for 
10.2 All requests for the return of Goods must be made within 3 months from the date of the Company's invoice.
10.3 If the Company agrees to accept Goods for return, it reserves the right to make a handling charge on those Goods. All
        Goods must be returned with the original invoice and in the same state and condition as they were when delivered to
        the Buyer. All return carriage charges must be borne by the Buyer.
10.4 Goods returned without the prior written approval of the Company may, at the Company's absolute discretion, be
        returned to the Buyer, or stored, at the Buyer's cost, without prejudice to any rights or remedies the Company may

11. Set-Off and Counterclaim - the Buyer may not withhold payment of any invoice, or other amount due to the Company,
      by reason of any right of set-off, or counterclaim, which the Buyer may have, or allege to have, for any reason

12. Third-Party Rights - the provisions of the Contracts Rights of Third-Parties Act 1999, shall not apply to these
      Conditions, or to any contract made between the Company and the Buyer, and no person, who is not a party to any
      such contract, shall have any right under that Act to enforce any term of such contract.

13. Law and Jurisdiction - the law of England and Wales shall apply and, all disputes arising out of any contract between 
      the Company and the Buyer, shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales. Save that 
      the Company shall be entitled to institute legal proceedings, for any recovery of monies due to the Company, or in the
      pursuit of any of the Company's remedies against the Buyer, in any Court having competent jurisdiction in the country to
      which the Goods may have been directly, or indirectly, exported or any Services contracted.

14. General Disclaimer - the Goods and Services and materials provided by the Company are on an "as is" basis. The
      Company disclaims any and all warranties, expressed or implied, including without limitation, warranties of
      merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to its Services or any materials and products in its
      Goods. In no event shall the Company be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive or consequential damages of
      any kind whatsoever with respect to its Services or any materials and products in its Goods.
