All metal removed becomes our property and is allowed for in our estimates, unless otherwise agreed. In the event of any material being damaged as a result of faulty workmanship on our part we undertake to use our best endeavours to remedy such faults as quickly as possible but we do not accept responsibility for any loss (occasioned by such faults or negligence) incurred by the customer whether by loss of profit, loss of income or any other loss whatsoever and our liability shall be limited strictly to remedying such faults.

Orders will be accepted on the understanding that we are not responsible for any delay loss or damage to goods whilst in transit. Claims for loss or damage during transit from our works, will be taken up with the carriers concerned, provided they and ourselves have been notified separately in writing within 3 days of receipt in the case of damage, or 14 days of despatch in the case of non-delivery.
All goods must be sent to us in suitable packing which will effectively protect the finished articles when returned after machining. Any additional packing which is considered necessary will be charged extra, but credited if returned “carriage paid” in good condition within 60 days.
Delay, Loss or Damage
