(a) Delivery Dates are estimates only given by the Company in good faith and are subject to change. Whilst the Company will make every effort to meet the dates, no liability will attach to the Company for any delays or loss from failure to maintain them. Time of delivery is not the essence of the Contract.
(b) In particular and without prejudice to the generality of the sub-contract (a) of this condition the Company shall not be liable for any delay in or failure of delivery caused by the unavailability of any raw materials or equipment or the Customers instructions or lack of them.
(c) Without prejudice to any other term of these conditions where the Contract precedes that Goods or materials shall be delivered by an independent carrier, delivery of the goods or materials in question by the Company to the Customer shall be deemed to be affected at the time of collection by or delivery to the carrier. In the event of goods or materials being collected by or on behalf of the Customer its servant or agents such collection will constitute delivery to the customer.
Delivery In Installments
(a) The Customer shall if required by the Company accept delivery by installments but shall not be entitled to demand delivery by installments.
(b) In the event of the Contract providing that goods shall be delivered or work shall be completed by installments each installment shall be considered to be a separate contract and construed as such in accordance with these conditions. In particular failure by the Customer to make payments by due date for any one installment for whatsoever reason entitles the Company to suspend deliveries or work upon this or any other Contract between the Company and the Customer but without prejudice to any other rights the Company may have under the provisions of such Contract.
(c) In the case of partial completion of an Order the Company shall be entitled to payment pro rata in respect of all goods supplied without prejudice to the Company's rights should non completion be occasioned by the Customer's act or default.

If you cannot be in to sign for it we can deliver to another address which you can specify on the online order form. The couriers do not carry mobile phones so cannot call you in advance.
