1. DEFINITIONS & GENERAL: In these Terms and Conditions of Sale all references to “the Seller” means UK Battery Sales Ltd. All references to “the Buyer” are to the person, firm or company to whom the Seller sells goods and services. All references to “Goods” are to the goods and services which are the subject of the Order. “Conditions” means the terms and conditions of sale as set out in this document and any special terms and conditions agreed in writing by the Seller.

Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing these Conditions form the basis of the contract relating to the supply of Goods sold by the Seller and purchased by the Buyer. The supply of Goods will be subject to these Conditions to the exclusion of all other such terms and conditions which the Buyer may purport to apply under any purchase order or any other document. All orders shall be deemed to be an offer by the Buyer to purchase Goods from the Seller pursuant to these Conditions.

2. ORDERS & QUOTATIONS: The Seller may accept an order for Goods at its complete discretion. All orders for Goods shall be deemed to be an offer by the Buyer to purchase from the Seller pursuant to these Conditions. Quotations are firm for thirty (30) days from offer date and represent no obligation until the Seller accepts the Buyers order. Clerical errors are subject to correction. No additional or different terms in the Buyer’s purchase order or other communication shall constitute a part of the quotation unless expressly agreed to in writing by the Seller and no provision of the quotation may be changed or waived in any respect except in writing by an authorized representative of the Seller. In no event shall any failure of the Seller to object to any additional or different provision in the Buyer’s purchase order or elsewhere be deemed an acceptance of such provision or a waiver of any provision of the quotation.

Buyer agrees that if the Buyer changes the quantity of Goods to be released for shipment then the Seller has the right to increase or decrease the price for the quantity of Goods shipped to the Buyer.

3. PRICE & INVOICING: Price is effective at time of shipment. The Goods will be invoiced at the price agreed or in the absence of any agreement of the price in a valid quotation or the current Seller price list. However, if a price increase becomes effective after the date of order, it will not apply to items shipped within thirty (30) days from the effective date of the price increase. Sales prices apply only if the total quantity on the purchase order is released within twelve (12) months for shipments scheduled not more than fifteen (15) months from the date or order.
