Terms and Conditions - PWT&Cv24.12.2020
An instruction to carry out work, whether written or verbal, shall be taken as acceptance of these terms and conditions unless the work is the subject of another written contract, the terms of which supersede these.
2. Definition and
basis of pricing
a) An estimate is an approximate price, calculated with reasonable care from available information, which may be given as a range or percentage variation. It constitutes an offer to do the work within the price range. This will be used where an exact price is not required or is impossible to give due to lack of information.
b) A quotation is an offer to do the work specified at the price quoted.
Once either a quotation or an estimate is accepted by the client it is to be taken as a contract between the company and the client. Quotations are valid for a period of 60 days unless otherwise stated.
a) The price is
based on normal working hours, Monday to Friday, unless otherwise stated.
b) Prices do not include any charges made by the supply authority unless otherwise stated.
c) All possible care will be taken in carrying out the work, this will mean plasterwork made good and floorboards and access panels screwed back. It does not include redecoration. Although care is taken to ensure a good finish, professional plasters are not employed unless specifically instructed.
Variations or additional work required shall be detailed by the client as early as possible. Ideally this will enable a price variation to be prepared and accepted. Instructions for work to proceed, before such acceptance, shall be required in writing and taken to mean acceptance of charges on a time and materials basis..
a) Unless otherwise
stated in the estimate or quotation, payment shall be due by the end of the
month after the invoice date.
