Terms & Conditions of Sale

[1] Terms of Delivery

I, the customer, am to pay for my own electrical and plumbing connections and the cost of any necessary alterations to my premises. Sydney Commercial Kitchens [SCK] is to complete the delivery on or about the date agreed upon in the contract, but this obligation is subject to my premises being ready to receive the installation and to all delays directly arising from shipping, non-availability of ordered equipment, strikes, lockouts, accidents, fires, wars, acts of God, non-delivery of material or parts by suppliers or any other cause or reason whatsoever beyond our control. No such delay shall excuse or justify my refusal to accept delivery of the equipment.

[2] Warranties

The equipment is covered by the manufacturers warranty and any terms and conditions that may apply under said warranty. Our manufacturers and suppliers will work hard to provide warranty service in an appropriate time frame. While some customers will request a replacement item or a full refund should there be a fault present at purchase the suppliers will invariably exercise their right to repair the item as covered under the warranty.

[3] Retention of Title

All equipment remains the property of SCK until such time as payment has been effected in full and all monies have been duly cleared in the relevant bank account.

Any agreement arising out of this request shall be deemed to have been entered into at the relevant place of execution and all monies payable hereunder shall be payable at the relevant office of SCK.

[4] Default

Should I countermand this request or neglect or refuse to accept delivery of the goods or if I fail to sign any Hire Purchase or any Agreement to which my signature is required by the terms hereof, I shall forfeit all monies already paid hereunder and pay to the Company, not as a penalty but as a genuine pre-estimate of the damages sustained by the company in the procurement of or manufacture of the goods or any part thereof at my request, such further, sum as with the monies already paid by me is equal to the Deposit Payable and a further ten [10] per centum of the total Purchase Price thereby provided.

[5] Damaged Goods

If an appliance is received and is faulty in any way, other than from transport damage, you should notify SCK immediately by phone or email advising your contact name, address, phone and fax numbers, our invoice number and details of the fault.

With deliveries, please check all items before signing for them. Please do not sign for and accept deliveries if the goods are obviously damaged in transit. It is better to refuse delivery than to sign for damaged goods. You could also ask the driver to acknowledge and sign that the delivery was received damaged.
