Billing Terms & Conditions

  1. General
    1. The “Company” refers to Morton & Perry Limited in these terms and conditions. “Goods” refers to goods provided or to be provided by the Company to the Customer under these terms of trade from time to time.
    2. All goods provided by the Company to the Customer are subject to these terms and conditions.
    3. If any part of these terms and conditions is found to be invalid, void, unlawful, or unenforceable, the other clauses’ validity, existence, legality, and enforceability will not be impacted, prejudiced, or impaired.
    4. In the event that the Company breaches this contract, the Customer’s rights are limited to damages. Under no circumstances will the Company’s responsibility exceed the cost of the Goods.
  2. Payment
    1. The Customer must pay for the Products in full before removing them from the warehouse and before the Company delivering the goods if the Customer requests delivery. If the payment tendered is later reversed or cleared funds are not received by the Company for any reason, the Customer shall be in default and shall, at the Company’s discretion (and without prejudice to any other rights the Company may have), pay default interest on any amount outstanding to the Company at a rate of 5% above the current base overdraft rate.
    2. Default interest will accrue daily from the due date until the date of actual payment, and the Customer shall be responsible for all expenses and costs (including legal fees as between solicitor and client) incurred by the Company in obtaining or attempting to obtain a remedy for the Customer’s failure to pay any amount owed.
    3. All payments are due immediately upon demand. The imposition of default interest in no way implies that the Company has granted or extended credit to the Customer.
    4. All charges to a credit card are processed as Authorisations (Auth). Authorisation does not result in the transfer of funds. It verifies the card and ensures that it will be accepted for the specified amount, as well as securing the cash for seven days. If no payment is received within 7 days, the hold on the funds will expire.
  3. Delivery

  4. Risk
    1. All risk in the Company’s Goods shall transfer to the Customer upon the Goods leaving the Company’s premises. The Customer recognises that any damage to the Goods during delivery is the Customer’s responsibility, not the carrier delivering the Goods.
  5. Retention of Title
    1. It is the Company’s purpose and the Customer’s agreement that property in the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the Customer has paid all monies due for the particular Goods. The Goods shall be kept separate until the Company shall have received payment and all other obligations of the Customer are met.
    2. If possession of the Goods is granted and the Customer defaults on payment or the Customer becomes insolvent, the Customer agrees to surrender possession of the Goods upon request, and the Customer authorises the Company to enter any premises where the Goods may be located to recover any such Goods, without being liable for any damage resulting from such entry.
    3. The Company may commence legal action to collect the price of Goods sold even though ownership of the Goods has not transferred to the Buyer.
