P&J will endeavour to despatch goods ordered within any time quoted from receipt of a written order but time will not be of the essence & P&J will not be liable for any loss arising directly or indirectly due to late delivery or non delivery. Claims for goods lost or damaged in transit will only be considered if notification is given in writing. Claims for goods damaged in transit or short delivered will only be considered if notification is given to P&J verbally at the time the damage is discovered and notification in writing is given [a] to the carrier, at the time of delivery on the carriers delivery docket or the carriers consignment note AND [b] to P&J within 3 days of receipt of the goods. Claims for non-arrival of the whole consignment will only be considered if notification in writing is given to P&J within 7 days from the date of notification of despatch.
Once orders have been placed & accepted, the Buyer shall not be at liberty to cancel such Orders except with P&J’s written consent & upon such terms as P&J may see fit to impose to indemnify P&J against all loss, including loss of profit. Goods that have been correctly supplied and are standard stock items may in some circumstances be allowed to be returned for partial credit but only by agreement with P&J before the goods are returned. A restocking fee of 25% is charged and all carriage costs must be borne by the Buyer. Returned goods must be in saleable condition and original packaging.
