In these Terms and Conditions ‘the Company’ shall mean Rimblades Ltd and ‘the Customer’ shall mean the Company or individual to whom goods are sold. Any of the terms and provisions of the Customer’s order which are inconsistent with these terms and conditions or are not expressly contained herein shall not be part of the Contract between the Customer and the Company and shall not be binding on the Company.
These conditions shall apply to all orders accepted by the Company and shall prevail over any conditions contained in the Customer’s Purchase Order or in correspondence or elsewhere unless agreed by the Company in writing. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held by any competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, the other provisions and the remainder of the provision in question shall not be affected thereby.

All prices quoted are exclusive of Value Added Tax and may also be adjusted for any other Tax or Duty due thereon. Standard payments will be accepted in GB Pounds, Euros or US Dollars unless otherwise agreed.
Orders for multiple items are treated as a divisible contract. Each delivery made shall be deemed to arise from a separate
contract and shall be invoiced separately; any invoice for a delivery shall be payable in full in accordance with the terms of payment provided for herein, without reference to and notwithstanding any defect of default in delivery of any other instalment.
Delivery and Acceptance
Standard carriage and packing charges at rates current at the time of despatch and dependent on the method of despatch and weight are applied. Additional charges will be made for special and overseas deliveries. The Company accepts no responsibility for failure to deliver within any period. The Company reserves the right to despatch in more than one consignment at its discretion. All goods will be deemed to have been accepted by the Customer complete, in a satisfactory condition and fully in terms with the contract unless the Customer notifies the Company to the contrary within 72 hours of receipt.
All Invoices and shipments relating to orders exported from the United Kingdom or Korea will unless otherwise agreed be subject to INCO Terms 2010. Each and every order shall be subject to agreement between the company and the customer on the relevant terms, but generally the terms used will be as follows:
The company will make available at a premises specified by the company goods sold to the customer not cleared for export and not loaded on any collecting vehicle.

The company will arrange carriage of the goods to the customer, not cleared for import, and not unloaded at named place of destination.
DDP-Delivered Duty Paid
The Company will arrange carriage of the goods to the Customer, cleared for import, and not unloaded at named place of destination.
All orders will be paid for in full (including cost of shipping where relevant) before goods are released from factory premises. The Company’s payment terms are a 50% non returnable deposit at time of order and the further 50% balance giving a total of 100% on notification from the Company that goods are ready. Once the Company receives a signed purchase order from the Customer, an invoice will be issued to the Customer. No goods will be manufactured until a 50% deposit is received.
Once a 50% deposit is received, goods will be produced as detailed in the purchase order received from the Customer. If the Customer fails to pay the balance of 50% within 60 days of notification from the Company that goods are ready, they waive all rights to the 50% deposit paid and rights to the goods. The Company reserves the right to suspend all deliveries and service where payment is not received in accordance with this clause.
The Customer is liable for any costs incurred in the recovery of an outstanding amount.
The Company aim to notify the Customer that goods are ready within 28 days from 50% deposit becoming cleared funds in the Company’s UK bank account. This 28 day period is to allow the Company time for the goods specified in the purchase order to be manufactured. Any amendments to an order from the Customer may extend this period. The Company can in some circumstances extend this 28 day period at it’s discretion, but will notify the Customer of the reason for the delay. If the Company is unable to notify the Customer that goods are ready for collection within 120 days of cleared 50% deposit, the Company accepts that the delay is the fault of the Company and will refund the 50% deposit.
The Company retains all right and title to any goods until all sums payable in respect thereof.
The Company shall replace at its discretion parts of any goods manufactured by it, which show defects shown to the Company’s reasonable satisfaction to be as a result of faulty materials or bad workmanship. Such defective parts must be returned to the Company carriage paid. A Goods Return Number shall be obtained from the Company prior to returning any goods for replacement. The packaging of the returned goods shall be externally identified with this Goods Return Number. Goods shall be returned in original packaging. The Company will replace any goods at it’s own discretion and at it’s own cost including the cost of shipping replacement goods to the Customer and associated costs. Under no circumstances will the Company issue any refund to the Customer, but the Company as stated in this clause subject to satisfactory return and inspection of goods will replace entirely at the cost of the Company.
