DELIVERY: (a) The customer is under a duty to inspect the goods on delivery or on collection as the case may be. (b) When goods are offered for delivery to site Whitakers Garden Centre obligation is to deliver as near to 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 Whitakers Garden Centre driver’s responsibility is limited to handling goods off the vehicle. If any Whitakers Garden Centre 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 Whitakers Garden Centre driver, an appropriate additional charge will be made. If the customer does not accept delivery of goods ordered for any reason costs incurred will be charged. (c) No liability is accepted for any loss arising from delay in delivery of goods unless Whitakers Garden Centre have expressly agreed to be bound by a delivery date which is of the essence of the contract. When delivery depends upon receipt of goods from the manufacturer, Whitakers Garden Centre do not accept responsibility for delay in such delivery unless Whitakers Garden Centre have obtained and reported to the customer acceptance by the manufacturer of the express condition as to time; but Whitakers Garden Centre will afford to the customer any remedy available to Whitakers Garden Centre against the manufacturer but this shall be the limit of Whitakers Garden Centre liability. Whitakers Garden Centre accept no responsibility for delay or non-delivery due directly or indirectly to strike, fire, act of state, force majeure or other circumstances beyond its control.

If the customer fails to give such notice or fails to give Whitakers Garden Centre 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) Whitakers Garden Centre may deliver the goods in one or more instalments whereby each instalment shall be treated as a separate contract.
