Terms & Conditions of Thrislington Cubicles Limited (‘the Company’)
Unless specifically stated in our quotation, it is assumed that standard plain HP & SG colour laminates will be used from the Thrislington range at the time in force.
Our quotation assumes that the standard cubicle dimensions are a height of 2000mm from f.f.l, (with a floor clearance of 150mm), and a depth of 1500mm for the dividing panels, unless otherwise stated; if they exceed these dimension and it is not clearly stated, we will need to revise our quotation accordingly.
All products are priced on a modular basis and are not subject to re-measure, other than for quantity of product.
Our quotation is based on our interpretation of your requirements and on the stated quantities. We do however, reserve the right to submit a further quotation should our interpretation and/or stated quantities prove to be incorrect.
*Due to the specialist nature of our products, the items included within our quotation are available on a supply and install basis only.
The stated price is fixed for a period of 1 month from date of this quotation.
The standard delivery lead times will be advised at the point of order and are generally 4-6 working weeks from receipt of all manufacturing information, unless specifically agreed in writing by an authorised representative of the Company. Approval of drawings will add a minimum of 2 weeks to this period.
Our quotation assumes that deliveries can be made between the hours of 7:30a.m. and 5:00p.m, Monday to Friday, and can be delivered using our articulated heavy goods vehicle. If this is not feasible, it is the contractor’s responsibility to inform the Company in writing, and the Company reserves the right to charge an additional amount for delivery by an alternative transport method.
If the contractor defaults on the agreed delivery date of goods, the Company reserves the right to charge for storage on a weekly basis of £500 per week.
Where deliveries have been agreed in advance and the Company is subsequently prevented from making a delivery, then the Company reserves the right to charge for an abortive delivery
*Our quotation assumes that the Company will provide offloading and distribution of its products to a safe storage position provided by the contractor, on the appropriate floor level and close to the area of installation. If we are unable to store our products close to the installation area, then either, the contractor is responsible for moving the product to the installation area prior to our fitter’s attending site (at the contractor’s cost and risk), or the Company reserves the right to charge for further distribution of the products to the installation area, once the fitting team arrive on site.
*We have allowed for the number of offloads stated in our quotation. If the project programme dictates that further deliveries are required, then they will be charged at a cost of £400 each. Out of hours offloading will be charged at £600 each and it is the contractor’s responsibility to inform the Company in writing should this service be required.
*Our installation cost includes for cut-outs for the soil pipe and cistern handle/push plate to w.c access modules and the waste pipe on a w.h.b or urinal module. In relation to vanity units, our quotation allows for one bowl cut-out per 750mm of vanity top. All apertures must be pre-marked by the contractor or his representative, whilst our fitting team is on site. If additional cut-outs are required, they will be charged at £15 per cut-out. If a return visit is required to complete the cut-outs, this will be charged at our standard daywork rate.
*Our quotation is based upon continuous working for our fitting team during normal (7:30a.m.-5:00p.m.) working hours, any deviation from this must be specifically agreed in writing by an authorised representative of the Company.
