Conditions of Sale of Material/Product
All materials remain the property of Campbell’s Build and Pave until paid for in full.
2. Price Variation:
Quotations are subject to change once not availed of under 24hrs
3. Extra Cost:
If the Company is required to make deliveries outside the normal working hours, the purchaser will be charged extra in accordance with the Company’s rates.
a) The Purchaser will provide a proper means of access to the Purchaser’s site, a safe and sound site and adequate manoeuvring space at the point of discharge. If in the opinion of the Company the access or site is unfit they may at their discretion refuse to complete the order. The full costs will be invoiced to the Purchaser in such an event.
b) To ensure compliance with specifications, deliveries of concrete must be discharged fully within two hours of time of batching as shown on the delivery ticket or such lesser time as may be dictated by the particular specification. Unless the Customer has some immediate use for concrete, drivers accordingly have instructions to return to the Company’s plant two hours after the time of batching or such lesser time as dictated by the appropriate specifications. The full costs including the costs of disposal will be charged to the Purchaser in such circumstances.
c) Any test sample required must be taken in full view and to the knowledge of driver upon arrival at site and spec must not be tampered with or results of said test will not be adhered to.
5. Suspensions of Deliveries:
Deliveries may be totally or partially suspended during any period in which the Company may be prevented or hindered from manufacturing, supplying or delivering the materials, due to breakdown of plant, non-availability of materials, labour disputes, fire, accident, inclement weather, transport difficulties or delays or any circumstances outside the Company’s control. The Company will make every effort to inform the purchaser should such an occasion arise but shall be under no liability to the Purchaser through failure to deliver in such circumstances.
Whilst every effort will be made to meet any delivery requirements, the Company shall not be liable for any loss or damage consequential or otherwise arising through its failure to meet such requirements.
No cancellation of any daily requirement for supply can be accepted unless such cancellation is received at the Company’s works in time to prevent that order being batched, mixed or loaded. The Customer will be charged in full for any materials batched, mixed or loaded at the time of cancellation together with any costs of disposal.
(a) No specific warranty or guarantee is given other than in (i) above unless by express arrangement agreed in writing by the Company and all other warranties and conditions are hereby excluded whether expressed or implied by law or otherwise and in particular the Company acts only as a supplier of materials to the order of the Purchaser and knowledge for the purposes for which the materials are intended to be used does not imply any warranty on the part of that Company as to the quality or fitness for that purpose of the materials to be supplied. If in any case no specification is given a 20/10-20N will be supplied.
(b) The company reserves the right to supply readymix concrete to any given project from more than one supply plant and to change the primary supply plant as operations require. Where such changes occur Campbell’s shall ensure that the original customer specification (where supplied) is adhered to. A change in supply plant may result in a change in raw materials and therefore some slight variation in colour of finished concrete elements. No guarantee of specific colour is provided for any concrete supplied.
The Company will accept no responsibility for faults in or failure of the materials due to use in unsuitable applications or to the handling, treatment or methods of placing adopted by the Purchaser after the materials have been delivered to site or loaded into any vehicle or receptacle provided by the Purchaser.
9. Workability / Consistence:
The Company will accept no responsibility for the workability, strength or quality of its concrete if the Purchaser shall have added anything whatever to it. The Company’s drivers have instructions to make no alterations to a mix without specific authorisation by the Purchaser and such authorisation shall be at the Purchaser’s risk. In the event that the Purchaser or his representative demands the driver to mix and discharge the concrete at a workability different to that specified and ordered, the Company will accept no responsibility for the consequences of the concrete being supplied at a workability outside the tolerance of that specified in the quotation.
(a) Any concrete sample(s) tested shall be taken during discharge from the delivery vehicle or from a central mixer in the case of concrete collected from the Company’s batching depot, with a member of our staff present in accordance with the relevant requirements.
The time allowed for discharge of the company’s concrete block vehicles is forty-five minutes. The Company may charge for periods in excess of the period allowed, in accordance with the company’s rates from time to time in force. See Faqs
Unless otherwise agreed, terms are net thirty day account with payment to be received by the Company not later than the fifteenth day of the month following the month of delivery. The Company reserves the right to refuse to execute any order or to suspend or discontinue deliveries it the arrangements for payment or the Purchaser’s credit is not satisfactory to the Company or the Purchaser’s account is overdue for payment and to charge interest on any balances overdue for payment at the rate of 2% per month.
