Terms and Conditions
Our marketing policy is one of continuous product development. We therefore reserve the right to alter specifications and prices without notice. All orders are accepted subject to these terms and conditions of sale unless otherwise specified and agreed in writing by Able Office Furniture Ltd.
Prices relate to products supplied in fabrics that are published in our price list, and are exclusive of VAT which will be invoiced at the rate ruling at the time of despatch. It is a condition of acceptance of orders that goods are invoiced at prices ruling at the date of despatch.
Payment for goods is strictly net monthly, and is to be made no later than the last day of the month following the month of delivery. In the event of late payment Able Office Furniture Ltd., reserves the right to charge interest on overdue amounts at 4% above the Bank of England base rate.
Ownership shall not pass to the purchaser until Able Office Furniture Ltd receives payment in full for any goods or services rendered.
Risk of loss or damage to the goods shall pass to the purchaser at the time of delivery. Where goods are lost, damaged or destroyed and ownership has yet to pass, the purchaser will indemnify Able Office Furniture Ltd against any loss incurred by it provided such loss damage or destruction does not result from the negligence of Able Office Furniture Ltd.
