TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS WITH MAGIBOARDS LIMITED
These conditions shall apply to and govern all contracts for the supply of goods and services by Magiboards Ltd (thereinafter called “the Company”) and shall prevail over any inconsistent terms or conditions contained in or referred to in sales and purchase orders to and from Magiboards or in
correspondence and elsewhere and all or any arrangements to the contrary are hereby eradicated. The term “goods” shall where the context so permits include units, parts, accessories, repairs and services.
(a) Subject to the provisions of Clause 2(c) whilst every effort will be made to maintain prices as quoted, the Company will only accept orders at prices ruling on the day of despatch, and such price shall be fixed at the Company’s discretion after taking into account any increase in the cost of materials, transport and any other relevant factors; and the buyer hereby agrees to pay the prices invoiced. The buyer also agrees to pay for any loss or extra cost incurred by the Company through any request or instructions on the part of the buyer, its employees or contractors. Unless otherwise indicated in the Company’s quotation no discount of any kind is permissible, prices being strictly net. In case of inadvertent errors or omissions in published prices the Company is under no obligation to supply at the prices quoted at in the quotation or on the order. If such errors result in the order value exceeding the value quoted or stated on the sales order the buyer shall be entitled to cancel the order prior to despatch at no charge to the buyer.
(b) Prices quoted are net prices and exclude Value Added Tax, which will be charged at the applicable rate at the date the goods are despatched. Whilst every endeavour will be made to maintain the prices quoted in the sales catalogue the Company reserves the right to effect changes without prior notice at any time before despatch. It is normal practice of the Company to issue a new price list every calendar year. Any products which are despatched once a new price list is available will be sold at the prices ruling at the date of despatch.
(c) Unless it has otherwise been agreed in writing, orders are accepted on the condition that payment is made in full on or prior to date of the taking of delivery of the good unless an approved credit account has been opened for the “buyer” by the Company. Payment of any instalment due is a condition
precedent to further deliveries, and the Company shall have the right to terminate any contract when an instalment or payment is in arrears. If any invoice is not agreed then it is incumbent upon the buyer to communicate this fact to the Company immediately as under no circumstances will any dispute be acknowledged by the Company more than 7 days after the date of the invoice. Where not otherwise expressly stated all payments are to be made at the main premises of the Company at Stafford Park 12, Telford, Shropshire, TF3 3BJ, within 30 days of invoice date, being the date of despatch of the goods by the Company, or, in case of collection by the Buyer, the date at which the Company has advised the Buyer that the goods are ready for collection. The date of despatch referred to in this paragraph may be several days before the goods are received by the buyer, allowing for the Company’s preferred method of transportation of the goods.
3. RETENTION OF TITLE
Title to the goods shall in no case pass from the Company until full payment for the goods has been received. If a cheque is tendered by the buyer it shall not be treated as payment until it has been cleared by the Company’s Bank. The Company shall in any event have a particular and general lien over the goods sold and for all claims and monies owing by the buyer to the Company under any contract whatsoever or in any other way whatsoever, and the Company shall be entitled to the return of all goods not paid for in full at the buyers expense in the event of any failure to pay in accordance with these conditions or any specific amendment thereto agreed in writing by the Company with the buyer.

Due to the nature of the different products we supply these may reflect the sight dimensions of the face of the whiteboard or notice board, the exterior dimensions of the product or a median between these. Variances may also result from rounding in the conversion from metric to imperial measurements and vice versa.

A 5mm tolerance will apply in any circumstance.
