|Shipping And Handling
1. ORDERS AND RIGHT TO CANCEL
1.1 All orders for Goods are accepted subject to the provisions of these Conditions.
1.2 KPP's catalogue or website does not constitute an offer to sell and KPP reserves the right to refuse or decline to accept any order.
1.3 The delivery to KPP of an order constitutes acceptance by the Customer of these Conditions and, specifically, that any representations about the Goods or variation to the Conditions shall be of no effect unless expressly agreed in writing and signed by a partner of KPP.
1.4 No Contract exists between the Customer and KPP for the sale of any Goods until KPP has received and accepted the Customers order and sent confirmation of acceptance to the Customer. The Goods are subject to availability. If KPP cannot deliver the Goods within an agreed time limit, KPP shall have the right to cancel the order and have any sums paid returned to the Customer (see 1.8).
1.5 If the Customer enters into the Contract as a consumer (as opposed to a business) and the Contract is concluded over the internet, by digital television, mail order, phone or fax the Customer has the right to cancel the Contract at any time up to the end of seven working days after the Goods are received and the provisions of Conditions 1.5 to 1.9 (inclusive) apply, but not otherwise. A working day is any day other than weekends and bank or other public holidays. There is no right to cancel the Contract if the order is for goods which by their nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly. KPP will notify the Customer at the time the order is accepted if this applies.
1.6 To exercise the right of cancellation, the Customer must give written notice to KPP by hand or post, fax or email, at the address, fax number or email address provided, giving details of the Goods ordered and (where appropriate) their delivery.
1.7 If the right of cancellation is exercised after the Goods have been delivered, the Customer will be responsible for returning the Goods to KPP at its own cost. The Goods must be returned to the address shown below and the Customer must take reasonable care to ensure the Goods are not damaged in the meantime or in transit.
1.8 Once KPP has been notified the Customer is cancelling the contract, KPP will refund or re-credit the Customer within 30 days for any sum that has been paid by the Customer for the Goods.
1.9 All refunds due to customer amendments following payment on account will incur a £10 administration fee.
1.10 If the Goods are not returned as required, KPP may charge the Customer a sum not exceeding the direct costs of recovering the Goods.
1.11 Cancellation fees. If a customer required to cancel all, or part of a confirmed order the following cancellation fee structure will apply:
20+ weeks prior to delivery can be reduced without cancellation fee.
16-19 weeks prior to delivery: 50% of the reduced amount will be charged.
10-15 weeks prior to delivery: 75% of the reduced amount will be charged.
3-9 weeks prior to delivery: 90% of the reduced amount will be charged.
1-2 weeks prior to delivery: 100% of the reduced amount will be charged.
Contract orders of plants and/or specific unit sizes at any stage in production: 100% of the reduced amount will be charged.
2.1 Delivery of the Goods shall be made by KPPs own means within the United Kingdom & Ireland. Outside of this area delivery shall be made by the Customer collecting them at KPP's place of business or, if some other place of delivery is agreed in writing, by KPP delivering the Goods to that place.
2.2 Where delivery is to take place by the Customer collecting the Goods from KPP's place of business, the Customer must collect the Goods within 10 days of KPP notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection.
2.3 Any dates specified by KPP for delivery of the Goods are intended to be an estimate and time for delivery shall not be made of the essence by notice.
2.4 If for any reason the Customer fails to accept delivery of any of the Goods when they are ready for delivery, or KPP is unable to deliver the Goods on time because the Customer has not provided adequate delivery instructions then:
2.4.1 risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer (including for loss or damage caused by KPP's negligence);
2.4.2 the Goods will be deemed to have been delivered; and
2.4.3 KPP may store the Goods until actual delivery to the Customer where upon the Customer shall be liable for any costs and expenses incurred (including, without limitation, insurance and storage)
2.5 KPP reserves the right to deliver the Goods by split deliveries, in which event each delivery shall be deemed to constitute a separate contract. No failure by KPP in respect of any one or more split deliveries shall vitiate the Contract or Contracts in respect of previous deliveries.
2.6 Containers, stacking trolleys, shelves and extensions should be returned or transferred at the time of delivery. If the Customer retains any such item they shall forthwith notify KPP and keep KPP informed as to when the return will take place. KPP reserves the right to make a charge for any damage caused to the items by the Customer, for reasonable hire charges and any transport costs incurred in returning the items.
3.1 KPP reserve the right to alter the price of any item at any time and, in the event of such alteration, the price will be notified to the Customer in the invoice. All goods will be invoiced at the price ruling at time of delivery.
3.2 Payment of the Price together with VAT, at the rate prevailing on the date of KPP's invoice, and any packing, loading and unloading, carriage and insurance charges shall be due prior to delivery unless credit has been authorised by KPP
3.3 Where credit for the Customer has been authorised by KPP, payment shall be due within 30 days of the date of invoice, and time for payment shall be of the essence.
3.4 KPP reserves the right to withhold deliveries until any outstanding payments under any other Contract between KPP and the Customer have been received.
3.5 KPP shall be entitled to interest on any overdue invoices at a rate of 8% over the Bank of England base rate from time to time in force such interest to accrue on a daily basis after as well as before any judgement. Where the Customer is a business KPP shall be entitled to the right to reasonable compensation for debt recovery costs incurred as a result of late payment and (without prejudice to Conditions 1.1 and 1.3 above where a Court determines that the Contract is governed by the Customer's terms of business) the right to challenge the imposition of grossly unfair terms and conditions where these undermine the terms of The Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 (as amended).
