Terms & Conditions

CONDITIONS OF SALE

In these conditions “Seller” refers to D & J Simons & Sons Ltd and “Buyer” refers to the individual firm or company to whom a quotation is addressed or whose order is accepted by the Seller. These conditions shall apply in respect of all Contracts between the Seller and Buyer for the purchase of goods or services from the Seller. No other conditions are incorporated or implied into any Contract between the Buyer and the Seller unless expressly accepted in writing by the Seller.

1. APPLICATION OF CONDITIONS

All quotations, offers and tenders are made subject to the following conditions. Except as otherwise provided in these conditions, all other terms, conditions, representations or warranties are excluded from any Contract between the Seller and the Buyer unless expressly accepted in writing by the Seller.

2. RETENTION OF TITLE

  • The risk in the goods passes to the buyer upon delivery, but equitable and beneficial ownership shall remain with us until full payment has been received (each order being considered as a whole). Or until prior re-sale, in which case our beneficial entitlement shall attach to the proceeds of re-sale or to claim for such proceeds
  • Should the goods become constitiuents of or be converted into other products while subject to our beneficial and equitable ownership, we shall have beneficial and equitable ownership in such other products in so far as it is appropriate to apply to such other products
  • Should it be necessary to send an outstanding account to an outside agency for collection, we reserve the right to charge an administration fee of up to £10.00.

  • No person in our employment or acting or purporting to act as our agent has any authority to supply goods or to accept orders for goods on any other terms or to vary them in any way whatsoever. Acceptance of the goods by the buyer shall be conclusive proof before any court that these terms apply to that contract for the sale of goods.
  • Referring to Title (Retention of Value of Monetary Figure)the property in the goods shall not pass to the Buyer until the Buyer has paid to the Seller the whole price thereof. If notwithstanding that the property in the goods has not passed to the Buyer, the Buyer shall sell the goods in such a manner as to pass to a third party a valid title to the goods, the Buyer shall hold the proceeds of such sale on trust for the Seller. The Buyer agrees that prior to the payment of the whole price of the goods the Seller may at any time enter upon the Buyer’s premises and remove the goods there from and prior to such payment the Buyer shall keep the goods separate and identifiable for this purpose.
  • Until title to the goods has passed to the Buyer under these conditions it shall possess the goods as fiduciary agent and bailee of the Seller. The Buyer shall store the goods separately from other goods and shall ensure that they are clearly identifiable as belonging to the Seller. During such time as the Buyer possesses the goods with the Seller’s consent, the Buyer may in the normal course of business sell or hire the goods as principal but without committing the Seller to any liability to the person dealing with the Buyer. Each paragraph or sub-paragraph of this condition is separate, severable and distinct.
