5.1.2 If the Customer obtains possession of the Goods prior to such payment, the Customer shall hold the Goods in a separate and identifiable form as bailee and fiduciary agent for the Seller;

5.5 Where the Goods are attached to either buildings or plant machinery of the Customer, the Customer agrees that it is not its intention that the Goods thereby become fixtures and fittings or part of the plant or machinery, but the Goods shall remain as chattels and be severable from the buildings or plant or machinery.

PERFORMANCE AND FORCE MAJEURE

6.1 The seller shall take reasonable steps to perform its obligations and deliver within the time specified, but such times are estimates only. The Seller shall not be liable for expenses losses or damages caused by late performance or delay in delivery and delays shall not entitle the Customer to rescind the Contract.
6.2 Without prejudice to the generality of Condition 6.1, the Seller shall have no liability for any expenses losses or damages caused by the delay or default in performance of any obligation caused directly or indirectly by breakdown or unavailability of plant or machinery, failure of supplies from the Seller’s own suppliers or failure of supply or raw material, inability to obtain sufficient labour or sufficient skilled labour or any other cause or causes beyond the reasonable control of the Seller. If such cause or causes prevent delivery of goods within the Delivery Period either party may cancel the order on giving written notice to the other at least 5 days before the Seller may reasonably expect to complete the order without liability to compensate the other party for any loss or damage whatsoever sustained by reason of the non delivery or non acceptance of those Goods.

Any such specific instructions must be given to the Seller at the time or order and where such specific instructions are given the Seller reserves the right to charge for delivery.
7.2 In the case of sales where the Seller delivers directly or contracts directly with the carrier then the Seller will repair or (at its option) issue a credit note in respect of Goods lost or damaged in transit (other than by default of the Customer), provided that:

7.2.2 In respect of complete non arrival of all of the Goods comprised in the Contract notification is made to the seller within 7 days of the date of dispatch of the Goods (the date of despatch to be identified from the invoice) and separately to the carrier within the period stipulated by the Carrier’s terms of carriage for claims against the Carrier; and
7.2.3 in respect of damage to all or part of the Goods or loss of part of the Goods comprised in the Contract notification is made to the Seller within 5 days of delivery of the Goods (which will normally be stated on the invoice) and separately to the Carrier within the period stipulated by the Carrier’s terms of carriage for claims against the Carrier. On request, the Seller will inform the Customer of the name and address of the Carrier and any time limit for claims, stipulated by them.
7.3 If it is necessary to despatch Goods in crates, cases, pallets, stillages or skids the Seller reserves the right to charge for packaging. The amount charged for packaging will be credited in full to the Customer if the packaging is returned in good condition at the expense of the Customer within 1 month of delivery.
7.4 Once the Goods are ready for delivery the Seller shall be entitled to invoice and be paid for the goods as if they had been delivered if for any reason the Customer does not arrange for or accept delivery. The Seller shall arrange storage for the Goods and the cost of storage shall be added to the Contract price.
7.5 Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by the Seller to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these conditions or any claim by the customer in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the customer to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
