SOMORA motor parts

Terms & Conditions

  1. Interpretation. In these conditions of sale:

    "Supplier" means Somora Motor Parts Limited registered in Ireland no. 111229, having its place of business at Unit 32, Lavery Avenue, Park West Industrial Park, Nangor Road, Dublin 21.

    "Customer" means the person who purchases the Goods.

    "Goods" means the goods ordered by the Customer from the Supplier, in an order which has been accepted by the Supplier.

  2. Guarantee. Goods supplied are guaranteed for 12 calendar months from the date of purchase against faulty materials or workmanship (but not against defects arising from misuse, neglect or normal wear and tear). Any goods considered faulty should be returned promptly to the supplier with details of the purchase and the reason for their return. Goods found to be faulty under the terms of this guarantee shall be replaced or, in the alternative, a credit note for their replacement cost shall be issued. The supplier reserves the right to charge a handling fee if the goods are found not to be faulty. This guarantee does not affect the statutory rights of any customer.
  3. Delivery Date. The Supplier shall use reasonable efforts to meet any stated delivery date but shall not be liable (in contract, negligence or otherwise) for any loss or damage resulting from its failure to do so, howsoever caused. Delivery Location: Delivery shall be at the Customer's premises stated on the purchase order, unless otherwise agreed.
  4. Instalments. Unless otherwise expressly agreed, the Supplier may make delivery in one or more instalments.
  5. Packaging, Carriage and Insurance. The Prices are exclusive of any costs of standard packaging, carriage and insurance, which shall be arranged by the Supplier but paid by the Customer in addition to the price.
  6. Reservation of Title. The ownership of all goods sold by the supplier to the customer shall remain with the supplier until all debts due to the supplier from the customer have been discharged in full. This shall not preclude the customer from selling the good to a third party in the normal course of business and delivering them subject to the condition that as long as the customer has not fully discharged any debt of Somora Motor Parts Limited, Somora Motor Parts Limited shall be entitled to pursue any claims the customer has against the purchaser emanating from that transaction. On appointment of a receiver or commencement of proceedings for bankruptcy or the winding up of the business of the purchaser, the supplier's representative or agents may repossess or trace any goods or the proceeds of sales or insurance in the purchaser.
  7. Risk. The insurance risk on all Goods purchased shall pass to the Customer upon delivery. Delivery is deemed made when the Goods are made available to the Customer for unloading at the point of delivery, and for the avoidance of doubt, the Customer is solely responsible for unloading. In the event of goods being returned by the customer, the insurance risk remains with the customer until the goods are delivered to the supplier.
  8. Queries and Complaints. All shortage, damage, defects or non delivery of goods must be reported in writing to the supplier within three (3) working days of the dispatch of the goods from the supplier. When reporting a claim, the customer shall quote the invoice number and the supplier will then issue a claim number which shall be quoted in all correspondence relating to the claim. Goods shall not be returned by the customer after delivery without the supplier's prior consent. The supplier will not accept goods returned three months after the date of delivery. In the event that the supplier consents to the return of goods, a handling charge of up to 25% will apply unless otherwise agreed between the parties. This does not affect the statutory rights of any customer.
  9. Force Majeure. In the event of the performance of an obligation accepted by the supplier being prevented, delayed or in any way being interfered with by any cause beyond the supplier's control, the supplier may at its option suspend performance or cancel its obligations under the contract without liability for any damages or consequential loss resulting therefrom, such suspension or cancellation being without prejudice to the supplier's right to recover all sums owing to it in respect of costs incurred to date.
  10. Prices. The price of goods is the price quoted in the supplier's catalogue unless the supplier gives notice in writing of a price change. It is the responsibility of the customer to verify the price at the time of ordering.
  11. VAT. Unless expressly quoted as including VAT, all prices are exclusive of value added tax or any other government taxes or duties which, if applicable, shall be paid by the Customer.
  12. Time of Invoice. The Supplier may invoice the Customer upon despatch of the Goods.
  13. Payment Terms. Unless the supplier agrees to supply the goods on credit, payment shall be made upon receipt of the goods.

  14. No Deductions. The Customer shall make all payments in Euro, without set-off or counterclaim and free and clear of all taxes, deductions, withholdings and other charges.
