All prices exclude tolls and VAT which is due at the rate currently in force. Quotations and estimates remain current for one month.

3. If a quotation is given it is a firm price for the job subject to these terms and conditions. An estimate is our best estimate of the final cost but may be subject to fluctuation due to the exigencies of the job, which may be difficult or impossible to forsee.

4. All accounts are payable within thirty days of invoice date. For cash transactions payment will be required on collection or delivery of the goods or within seven days of invoice date.
