Delivery & Returns

Delivery

Delivery dates and times specified by the Company are approximate only. Unless expressly agreed by the Company in writing, time for delivery is not and shall not be deemed to be of the essence of the contract. The Customer shall make all arrangements necessary to take delivery of goods whenever they are tendered for delivery.

If goods are sold and delivered to the Customer in instalments each delivery shall constitute a separate contract, and failure by the Company to deliver any one or more of the instalments or any claim by the Customer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Customer to treat the contract as a whole as repudiated.


Returns

Customers are reminded that it is illegal to send contaminated goods through the post. Equipment containing mercury must be emptied and disposed of in a suitable authorised container before return. To reduce the risk of cross contamination, all instruments/ equipment should be sterilised as per manufacturer’s instructions. The details of the method used for sterilisation of items must accompany the returned item. The Company reserves the right not to handle items which do not meet these specific requirements. Any agreement or authorisation to accept goods back does not absolve the Customer from these responsibilities.
