Prices and terms of payment
Cash discount deductions are not allowed. Discount fees, collection fees and any other costs shall be borne by the customer. Unless otherwise agreed, prices are ex works, excluding packaging and loading. The purchaser must make the payment in accordance with the agreed credit period; unless otherwise agreed, payment must be made within 30 days of invoice without any deductions. The purchaser is not entitled to withhold payments due to the assertion of warranty claims or other counterclaims not recognised by us. Until payment obligations are met in full by the purchaser, we reserve the right of ownership of the purchased object. Resale of goods still in our possession is not allowed.
Any transport damage must be identified in the presence of witnesses (the carrier) or expert witnesses. In the case of loading or transport damage not immediately reported, the carrier shall accept no liability for transport damage. Unless otherwise stated in the order confirmation, delivery is « ex works ». Our delivery is considered to be complete once the goods have been handed over to the freight carrier or haulier. Loading and dispatch take place in all cases at the purchaser’s risk, even in the case of deliveries « free recipient » or « free destination », « carriage paid to… » or similar.
Delivery periods and delays
The delivery period starts on the day of the final order confirmation, but not before full clarification of all details of the order being fulfilled. We accept no liability for delayed or omitted deliveries and services by our upstream suppliers.
The manufacturer guarantees the products manufactured by him/her for the period of 12 months from the date of invoice, with the exception of additional products purchased, such as propeller shafts, ball bearings, V-belts, etc. for which the guarantee clause of the respective manufacturer shall apply. During the guarantee period, the manufacturer is obliged to replace free of charge any parts recognised by our own technical department as being covered by the guarantee. Labour and transport costs are excluded. From the outset, the following equipment is not covered by the guarantee: – equipment that has been modified – equipment not used for its intended purpose – equipment that was continued to be used once a defect occurred. The manufacturer refuses to accept any responsibility for consequential costs in the case of equipment under guarantee, such as loss of earnings, consequential damages, etc. For accounting reasons, all replacement parts will be charged at the moment of dispatch, even parts under guarantee. On recognition of a guarantee claim, a credit will be issued. The orderer must return defective parts to the factory at his/her own cost.
