All our quotations are subject to the following conditions.
Acceptance of our quotation implies acceptance of these terms and conditions.
Payment of the whole price quoted is the responsibility of the person who placed the order whether in writing or verbally.
Payment is due within 7 days of the invoice.
All materials installed on the customer’s site remain the property of South Coast Fencing until the balance is paid in full. If the balance is not paid, we reserve the right to remove the materials from the site.
The customer is responsible for locating and identifying all underground services such as electric cables, water pipes, gas pipes, drainage, etc. Whilst care will be taken when digging, South Coast Fencing Limited will not accept responsibility for any damage or costs of repairs to services.
The customer should also provide protection or remove plants, furniture or ornaments which may impede the works or are at risk of damage.
It is the customer’s responsibility to identify the correct fence line and communicate with neighbouring property owners; we can not be involved in boundary disputes which normally cause delays and added costs to a job; these costs will be chargeable. See delays below.
If, when our teams are deployed on site, and a delay beyond our control occurs we reserve the right to charge an hourly rate of £120.85 +VAT per hour lost.
Examples where this may apply include: a late change of specification after work has commenced, the discovery of unexpected underground services or other major impediment, a boundary dispute or any other significant interference to the works.
SITE CLEAN UP
If included in your quote and stated so, we will remove old fencing and any waste from new fencing. Spoil from post holes will either be spread (if not intrusive) or taken away.
Upon your acceptance of a quote specially-made items may be produced, including but not limited to: panels, gates & trellis and non-stock items that have been ordered from outside suppliers. If such items have been processed for your order and installation is cancelled, you will be liable to cover these costs and in the circumstances of cancellation being of short notice a cost will be incurred to cover labour that would have been assigned.
CANCELLING SITE VISITS
Site visits for surveys or quotes are provided free of charge. If you need to cancel or amend a site visit appointment, please give us 24 hours notice. Failure to do so will result in a one-off fee of £45.88 + VAT which is payable within 7 days.
