TERMS & CONDITIONS OF CONTRACT

Preliminary
This contract shall be at "limited carriers risk" (pursuant to the Contract and Commercial Law act 2017, hereafter "CCLA") unless the parties agree that goods are to be carried at "owner's risk".

Goods Packaging Requirements
Customers must package their goods so that they will not be damaged when road freighted in the normal manner. Road-freighting involves the loading of goods on and off trucks, other freight being pushed alongside the goods and other freight being placed underneath or on top of the goods. Road-freighting also subjects the goods to physical forces when travelling on trucks for long distances and on uneven and winding roads. Customers are responsible for packaging their goods to avoid any damage, and this means that the more fragile (easily damaged) the goods are, the greater are the requirements for the packaging to protect those goods. Damage claims will be declined when the packaging is insufficient to protect the goods. In the event that goods are damaged, the damage must be noted on the consignment note at point of delivery.

Notice of Claims
The carrier shall be under no liability whatsoever unless written notice of any claim, giving reasonable particulars of the event giving rise to the claim and any alleged damage or loss, is received by the carrier within 7 days of delivery, or in the case of non-delivery, within 14 days of despatch. Sections 274-276 of the CCLA shall not apply to the contract.

Payment terms are weekly invoicing with payment due the following Wednesday. A 2% monthly late fee may be charged on overdue balances. Any expenses, costs or disbursements incurred by the carrier in recovering any outstanding monies including debt collection agency fees or solicitor’s costs shall be paid by the freight payer.

Not all freight can be shipped with our carriers. If we cannot ship the freight we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know.

Delivery times are estimates and while we will do everything possible to deliver on time we do not guarantee the delivery date.

Additional costs may be incurred for rural delivery items. You will be notified prior to the pickup of the freight and will have the option to cancel at that time if the costs are not accepted.

Errors and omissions may arise from time to time. We reserve the right to correct these including errors in pricing if there is a gross error in pricing.
