General, booking and service usage Terms and Conditions
Introduction and acceptance of agreement
Incorporation of conditions
Any contract or agreement to do work made between you and us shall be subject to these conditions, and any terms you put forward do not apply. All other terms and conditions which might be implied by conduct or a previous course of dealing or trade custom are excluded from this contract. No amendment or change shall be made to these conditions.
Quotations, Estimates and Prices
Our quotation or estimate provides an indication to you of the items on which you may place an order, but no order from you as a result of a quotation or estimate (or otherwise) shall be binding upon us unless and until it is accepted or confirmed by us. A quotation or estimate is made on the assumption that the work requested is reasonably capable of being carried out. If on inspection this is found in our opinion not to be the case, we will advise you to this effect as soon as reasonably practicable, and may offer you a reconditioned or new substitute on terms to be agreed. If you give a general instruction for repairs without specifying the particular service or replacement parts, we will be entitled to carry out such repairs or, modifications or service as in our opinion are necessary to put the Customer's Equipment in good working order, and to make a charge which is reasonable in our opinion, for the work and parts provided. Provided your order is placed within thirty days of the date of the quotation, the price contained on the quotation shall be fixed unless the quotation states otherwise. Provided your order is placed within thirty days of the date of the estimate, the price contained on the estimate shall remain a best guess and may fluctuate up to and including one hundred percent. If your order is not placed in the specified period, then if any change shall occur after that in the costs of any materials, labour, transport or other items, including overheads, which we have to pay or incur for the performance of the Contract, then you will pay the resultant price. If delivery and performance are postponed at your request or by circumstance(s) within your control you will pay all resulting costs and expenses we incur. We will charge for all work carried out at your request, whether exploratory or otherwise and, in particular, we reserve the right to instruct our employees or agents to work overtime to comply with your delivery requirements and/or regulatory requirements in which case we may charge you the cost of such overtime. If the Services are to be carried out on your premises or at your request some other site we will require free accessible and secure parking arrangements to be made. We reserve the right to charge you the cost of such parking arrangements should parking arrangements not be made prior to our arrival and/or where the company deems arranged parking to be insecure, inaccessible or inappropriate.
Work on Site
If the Services are to be carried out on your premises or at your request at some other site we will need free and safe access to the customer's Equipment, together with proper and safe storage and protection of all goods, tools, plant and equipment and materials we have on site. We may also require additional facilities to carry out the Services such as water and/or electricity. You will observe and comply with the latest Health and Safety at Work Legislation and ensure that the site is safe and without risk to the health and safety of all persons working there; and you will hold us harmless against all legal and regulatory proceedings, costs and charges in respect of your failure to do so.

All payments will be in pounds Sterling. Invoices issued via electronic mail will be taken to be delivered the next day and invoices issued by First class post will be taken to be delivered within two working days inclusive of Saturday. We reserve the right to charge a surcharge for late payment, this is set at a charge of fifteen Great British Pounds plus eight percent interest plus the Bank of England base rate at the time of the latest amount due per Gregorian calendar month from the invoice issue date. If you disagree with an amount on your invoice you must clarify that you dispute the invoice amount in writing within seven days from the day the invoice was issued incorporating the delivery dates aforementioned within this section.

You agree that these charges will be payable regardless of any cooling off period that may be entered into and that electrical services are classed as bespoke services tailored to you, your requirements and your installation.
