DELIVERY: (a) The customer is obliged to inspect the goods on delivery or collection as the case may be. (b) When goods are offered for delivery to the site Beesley & Fildes Ltd obligation is to deliver as near to the kerb side or site as a safe hard road permits. If a vehicle delivers or collects goods to or from a place off the public road the customer shall be solely responsible for any accident or damage resulting. The customer shall provide free of charge any labour necessary for unloading goods when delivered and Beesley & Fildes driver’s responsibility is limited to handling goods off the vehicle. If any Beesley & Fildes Ltd vehicle is kept on site for any unreasonable time or has to return to the depot without completing delivery through lack of assistance or if additional staff had to accompany any Beesley & Fildes Ltd driver, an appropriate additional charge will be made. If the customer does not accept delivery of goods ordered for any reason, costs will be charged. (c) No liability is accepted for any loss arising from delay in delivery of goods unless Beesley & Fildes Ltd have expressly agreed to be bound by a delivery date of the contract’s essence. When delivery depends upon receipt of goods from the manufacturer, Beesley & Fildes Ltd do not accept responsibility for delay in such delivery unless Beesley & Fildes Ltd have obtained and reported to the customer acceptance by the manufacturer of the express condition as to time; but Beesley & Fildes Ltd will afford to the customer any remedy available to Beesley & Fildes Ltd against the manufacturer but this shall be the limit of Beesley & Fildes Ltd liability.

If the customer fails to give such notice or fails to give Beesley & Fildes Ltd the opportunity to inspect the entire consignment, the goods shall be deemed to have been delivered and to be in accordance with the contract in all respects, and therefore accepted by the customer. (e) If the customer or the customer’s consignee breaks bulk on delivery or unloads the whole or any part of a consignment of goods or materials the customer is deemed to have accepted delivery. (f) Beesley & Fildes Ltd may deliver the goods in one or more instalments whereby each instalment shall be treated as a separate contract.
