3) All invoices are shown in sterling currency unless otherwise stated.
4) All goods are sold subject to stock availability. No guarantee or warrantee as to the rate or the time of despatch is to be given or implied. All dates and times given are intended as best estimates only.
5) All orders placed for 'standard' delivery within England and Wales with a net value of at least £150 will be carriage free (£200 for Scotland and £600 for Northern Ireland) (we reserve the right to increase the minimum order value without prior written notice).

9) In the event of a claim in matter of error, omission or breakage, our customer service must be informed in writing within 14 days of delivery. This should enable the query to be resolved before the payment due date. If the query is raised outside the 14 days then full payment of the invoice must still be made within the agreed payment terms. We also reserve the right not to accept claims made after the expiry of these times.
10) Accounts are to be settled within 1 month of invoice date. We reserve the right to charge interest at 5% above Lloyds TSB Bank plc minimum lending rate on any overdue account and to withhold the supply of further goods pending payment in full.

All risks in the product shall pass on delivery to your premises.
12) Any quotations or orders accepted are subject to shortage of raw materials, fuel or power, shortage of labour or transport, breakdown or partial failure of plant or machinery at the H & L Russel Ltd's works or at the works of its suppliers or sub-contractors not withstanding that H & L Russel Ltd has taken all reasonable steps to procure the same. In respect of any interruption in the normal operation of H & L Russel Ltd's works arising from act of god, Government action or any acts, orders or regulations of Government, strikes or lockouts, civil commotion, riots or any other cause of whatsoever nature beyond the control of H & L Russel Ltd, no liability can be accepted by H & L Russel Ltd for any consequential loss or damage.

14) Unless otherwise agreed in writing by a senior manager of H & L Russel Ltd, these Terms and Conditions Sale which supersede any earlier Terms and Conditions of Sale shall override any terms or conditions stipulated, incorporated or referred to by the purchaser whether in the order or in any negotiations proceeding the formation of the contract.
