Delivery of Goods 4.1 PB Battery Solutions shall ensure that: (a) each delivery of the Goods is accompanied by a delivery note which shows the date of the Order, all relevant PB Battery Solutions reference numbers, the type and quantity of the Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable), special storage instructions (if any) and, if the Order is being delivered by instalments, the outstanding balance of Goods remaining to be delivered; and (b) it states clearly on the delivery note any requirement for the Customer to return any packaging material to PB Battery Solutions. The Customer shall make any such packaging materials available for collection at such times as PB Battery Solutions shall reasonably request. Returns of packaging materials shall be at PB Battery Solutions expense. 4.2 In terms of delivery, either: (a) PB Battery Solutions shall deliver the Goods to the location set out in the Order or such other location as the parties may agree at any time after PB Battery Solutions notifies the Customer that the Goods are ready; or (b) (where specifically agreed in writing between PB Battery Solutions and the Customer) the Customer shall collect the Goods from the PB Battery Solutions premises at 8 Sherwood Energy Village, Ollerton, Newark, Nottinghamshire, England, NG22 9FD or such other location as may be agreed with the Customer before delivery within 3 Business Days of PB Battery Solutions notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready, such location being the Delivery Location. 4.3 Delivery of the Goods shall be made at the Delivery Location. If PB Battery Solutions is delivering the Goods to the Customer’s Delivery Location (as envisaged in clause 4.2(a) above) delivery shall be completed upon unloading the Goods from the delivery vehicle(s). If the Customer is collecting the Goods from PB Battery Solutions Delivery Location (as envisaged in clause 4.2(b) above) delivery shall be completed upon loading the Goods onto the delivery vehicle(s). 4.4 Any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only, and the time of delivery is not of the essence. PB Battery Solutions shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods that is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Customer’s failure to provide PB Battery Solutions with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods. 4.5 If PB Battery Solutions fails to deliver the Goods, its liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Customer in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods. PB Battery Solutions shall have no liability for any failure to deliver the Goods to the extent that such failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Customer’s failure to provide PB Battery Solutions with adequate delivery instructions for the Goods or any relevant instruction related to the supply of the Goods. 4.6 If the Customer fails to take delivery or collect the Goods (as the case may be) within three Business Days of PB Battery Solutions notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready, then except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or by PB Battery Solutions failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract in respect of the Goods: (a) delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to have been completed at 9.00 am on the third Business Day following the day on which PB Battery Solutions notified the Customer that the Goods were ready; and (b) PB Battery Solutions shall store the Goods until delivery takes place and charge the Customer for all related costs and expenses (including insurance). 4.7 If ten Business Days after PB Battery Solutions notified the Customer that the Goods were ready for delivery the Customer has not taken delivery of or collected the Goods (as the case may be), PB Battery Solutions may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods and, after deducting reasonable storage and selling costs, account to the Customer for any excess over the price of the Goods or charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price of the Goods. 4.8 PB Battery Solutions may deliver the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment. 5. Quality of Goods 5.1 PB Battery Solutions warrants that (subject to the provisions of this clause 5) upon delivery the Goods shall conform in all material respects with their description and any applicable Goods Specification, and shall be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship. PB Battery Solutions may in respect of certain Goods provide specific warranties in addition to this clause 5.1, and where this is the case full warranty details will be provided to the Customer in writing at the time of supply. 5.2 Subject to clause 5.3, if: (a) the Customer gives notice in writing to PB Battery Solutions of any defect within 3 Business Days of discovering that some or all of the Goods do not comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1; and (b) PB Battery Solutions is then given a reasonable opportunity to examine those Goods before they are used, further damaged or otherwise interfered with, and (if asked to do so by PB Battery Solutions) the Customer return them to the relevant PB Battery Solutions Branch or other location, or allow PB Battery Solutions to collect the Goods concerned; then PB Battery Solutions shall, at its option, repair or replace the defective Goods, or refund the price of the defective Goods in full. These Conditions shall apply to any repaired or replacement Goods supplied by PB Battery Solutions. 5.3 PB Battery Solutions shall not be liable for Goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1 in any of the following events: (a) if the Customer makes any further use of such Goods after giving notice in accordance with clause 5.2; (b) if the defect arose because the Customer failed to follow PB Battery Solutions instructions as to the appropriate storage, commissioning, installation, use and maintenance of the Goods or (if there are none) good industry practice regarding the same; (c) if the defect arose as a result of PB Battery Solutions following any drawing, design or Specification supplied by the Customer; (d) if the Customer alters or repairs the Goods without PB Battery Solutions written consent; (e) if the defect arose as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage or negligence (other than by PB Battery Solutions), abnormal working conditions or acts or omissions by the Customer, its agents or subcontractors; or (f) if the Goods differ from their description or any Specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements. 5.4 Except as provided in this clause 5, PB Battery Solutions shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1. In particular, PB Battery Solutions will not be responsible for either the cost of removing the Goods from any location where they are installed or fixed (or making good the location after removal) or for the cost of installing or fixing any repaired or replacement Goods supplied. 5.5 The Customer acknowledges that where PB Battery Solutions supplies specially produced Goods, these are not PB Battery Solutions stock items, and will usually have been specially manufactured or purchased from a third party supplier, and the warranty which PB Battery Solutions is able to provide to the Customer in respect of any defects will be limited to that which the third party supplier provides to PB Battery Solutions. This may be different to (and more limited than) the warranty contained in clause 5.1. Details of the applicable warranty on such items is available from PB Battery Solutions upon request (and PB Battery Solutions will usually confirm details to the Customer when PB Battery Solutions supplies such special Goods). 5.6 Upon request, PB Battery Solutions will provide the Customer with information about any relevant manufacturer’s guarantee offered and available to the Customer in respect of Goods, and will use reasonable endeavours to make such note however that PB Battery Solutions is not legally responsible for any obligation under manufacturer’s guarantees. 5.7 The terms implied by sections 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Contract. 5.8 Except as provided in this clause 5, PB Battery Solutions shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Goods’ failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 5.1. 5.9 The terms of these Conditions shall apply to any repaired or replacement Goods supplied by PB Battery Solutions. 6. Title and risk 6.1 The risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer on completion of delivery. 6.2 Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until PB Battery Solutions receives payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for the Goods, in which case title to the Goods shall pass at the time of payment. 6.3 Until title to the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall: (a) store the Goods separately from all other goods held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as PB Battery Solutions property; (b) not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods; (c) maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price on PB Battery Solutions behalf from the date of delivery; (d) notify PB Battery Solutions immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 14.2(b) to clause 14.2(d); and (e) give PB Battery Solutions such information relating to the Goods as PB Battery Solutions may require from time to time. 6.4 If before title to the Goods passes to the Customer the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 14.2(b) to clause 14.2(d), then, without limiting any other right or remedy PB Battery Solutions may at any time: (a) require the Customer to deliver up all Goods in its possession which have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product; and PB Battery Solutions Stored Energy, Unit 8 Sherwood Network Centre, Sherwood Energy Village, Ollerton, NG22 9FD (b) if the Customer fails to do so promptly, enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Goods are stored in order to recover them. 7.
