In addition, the Customer must pay any other taxes and duties that may be applicable in addition to the Price except where they are expressly included in the Price.

6. Delivery

  1. Delivery of the Goods (“Delivery”) is taken to occur at the time that:

However, both parties agree that they shall make every endeavour to enable the Goods to be supplied at the time and place as was arranged between both parties. In the event that LGAS is unable to supply the Goods as agreed solely due to any action or inaction of the Customer then LGAS shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for re-supplying the Goods at a later time and date.

6.5 The Customer shall ensure that LGAS has clear and free access to the site at all times to enable them to make Delivery. LGAS shall not be liable for any loss or damage to the site (including, without limitation, damage to pathways, driveways and concreted or paved or grassed areas), unless due to the negligence of LGAS.

6. Risk

7.1 If LGAS retains ownership of the Goods under clause 9 then:

7.1 a where LGAS is supplying Goods only, all risk for the Goods shall immediately pass to the Customer on Delivery and the Customer must insure the Goods on or before Delivery.

7.1 b where LGAS is to both supply and install Goods, then LGAS shall maintain a contract works insurance policy until the Services are completed. Upon completion of the Services all risk shall immediately pass to the Customer.

7.2 If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following delivery but prior to ownership passing to the Customer, LGAS is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The production of these terms and conditions by LGAS is sufficient evidence of LGAS’ rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with LGAS to make further enquiries.

7.3 If the Customer requests LGAS to leave Goods outside LGAS’ premises for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended site then such Goods shall be left at the Customer’s sole risk.

7.4 Holes, cut outs and cutting of the Goods may weaken the strength of the Goods and although it’s unlikely, cracking may occur. LGAS accepts no responsibility against cracks occurring after such Goods (that are subject to holes and cut outs) are installed unless a toughened glass is used.

8. Compliance with Laws

8.1 The Customer and LGAS shall comply with the provisions of all statutes, regulations and bylaws of government, local and other public authorities that may be applicable to the Goods, including AS/NZS requirements (where applicable) and any occupational health and safety laws relating to building/construction sites and any other relevant safety standards or legislation.

8.2 The Customer shall obtain (at the expense of the Customer) all licenses and approvals that may be required for the Goods.

b) the Customer has met all of its other obligations to LGAS.

9.3 It is further agreed that:

a) until ownership of the Goods passes to the Customer in accordance with clause 9.1 that the Customer is only a bailee of the Goods and must return the Goods to LGAS on request.

b) the Customer holds the benefit of the Customer’s insurance of the Goods on trust for LGAS and must pay to LGAS the proceeds of any insurance in the event of the Goods being lost, damaged or destroyed. 

c) the Customer must not sell, dispose, or otherwise part with possession of the Goods other than in the ordinary course of business and for market value. If the Customer sells, disposes or parts with possession of the Goods then the Customer must hold the proceeds of any such act on trust for LGAS and must pay or deliver the proceeds to LGAS on demand.

d) the Customer should not convert or process the Goods or intermix them with other goods but if the Customer does so then the Customer holds the resulting product on trust for the benefit of LGAS and must sell, dispose of or return the resulting product to LGAS as it so directs.

e) the Customer irrevocably authorises LGAS to enter any premises where LGAS believes the Goods are kept and recover possession of the Goods.

f) LGAS may recover possession of any Goods in transit whether or not delivery has occurred.
