TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE
The following terms and conditions govern all sales from WoodCo Millwork Ltd and/or Delver Management LLC (hereafter collectively referred to as "WoodCo") to you:
1. PRICE. While WoodCo works diligently to provide the best quality products at competitive prices, the pricing of WoodCo's goods are subject to periodic change without notice. Notwithstanding any prices which may appear in any WoodCo sales literature or which may otherwise be given verbally at the time of inquiry, the final agreed price of an item ordered is understood and agreed to be our standard price for that item in effect as of the date of actual delivery. The price stated on our invoice are deemed by these terms and conditions to be the final agreed price unless the item is rejected by you in writing within twenty-four hours of your receipt of such invoice. WoodCo will honor its written price quotes that include a statement that the noted price is firm for a fixed period of time so long as delivery is taken by you within the stated period.
2. SALES AND USE TAX. All sales that are conducted within the State of Texas are deemed to take place at WoodCo's premises located at 400 N W.W. White Road, San Antonio, TX 78219, and are taxed at the prevailing rate applicable to that point of sale. Customers requesting goods to be delivered, shipped or collected at any other location are deemed to make the purchase at the 400 N W.W. White Road location and the customer is solely responsible for any locally levied use tax different to the prevailing rate at the W.W. White Road premises. For any sales to be treated as exempt from sales and use tax, WoodCo must have a Sales Tax certificate completed and signed by the customer on record at the time of delivery. Any goods that are shipped directly out of the State of Texas will not be charged local sales tax and the purchaser is solely responsible to pay any locally required sales or use tax to the appropriate jurisdiction at the point of use.
3. DELIVERY. WoodCo utilizes its best efforts to fulfill its customer's requests for specific delivery dates. However, all delivery quotes are estimates only and WoodCo shall not be held responsible for delays or cancellations of shipments or deliveries which are caused by circumstances beyond our exclusive control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, production scheduling variances, delays in obtaining raw materials, government action, labor disputes and the like. It is the customer's responsibility to unload the shipment from the vehicle at the time of delivery unless otherwise previously agreed to in a writing signed by WoodCo. When practicable, WoodCo will follow requested shipping instructions. If none are requested, WoodCo will use its discretion in selecting an appropriate delivery method and delivery location at the delivery location. Once WoodCo's goods are delivered and unloaded at the designated location, you are responsible for any costs associated with relocating the materials on the site, as well as for any loss, damage or casualty to the goods, regardless of the cause, including theft at the delivery site. In case of any missed deliveries, delays, damage to goods, missing product or any other issue or complaint suffered by a WoodCo customer from a third-party carrier, the complaint must be noted on the delivery documents at the time of accepting the delivery and signed by the receiver and the driver. It is the sole responsibility of the receiver of the goods to notify the carrier concerned of the problem or complaint to initiate the claim process. Photographic evidence should be secured whenever possible to substantiate damage claims.
4. CLAIMS/RETURNS. As a purchaser of WoodCo's goods and services, you shall have the right and duty to inspect the goods immediately upon delivery to the location specified in the Purchase Order to ensure conformance of the goods with any specified condition, quality and quantity. Any defect or deficiency in the goods shall be reported to WoodCo in writing within twenty-four (24) hours of delivery, specifying in reasonable detail the nature, extent and basis of the claim. Any concealed damage of merchandise caused by shipping via common carrier must be specifically noted in writing on the delivery ticket and reported to WoodCo within that same period, and credit for material so damaged during delivery shall be limited to the amount of the claim paid by the carrier. WoodCo may, at its option, inspect the goods at your facilities to confirm that the goods do not conform, or require that the subject goods be returned by you for inspection at WoodCo's facility at 400 N W.W. White Road, San Antonio, TX 78219. Any failure to comply with these conditions within the time set forth herein shall result in your having been deemed to have irrevocably accepted the goods and unconditionally waiving of any claim related to same. All returns must further be authorized in advance by WoodCo within thirty (30) days of your receipt of the material. Returned materials must average the same grade, widths, and lengths as when the goods were shipped to you. Returned materials will be credited at invoice price, less applicable freight charges and less our standard restocking/handling charge of 25%. We reserve the right to require that freight on returns be prepaid by the customer. All material is assumed received in good condition and as ordered unless exception is specifically noted in writing as provided in this paragraph. No returns will be accepted on any custom run material unless due to milling defects by WoodCo, and no returns will be accepted on special order non-stock items.
5. PAYMENT. All sales are C.O.D. unless credit arrangements have otherwise been made in advance in writing. If your credit application is approved, payment in full is due within thirty (30) days from the date of invoicing. All amounts exceeding your credit limit shall be paid C.O.D. In the event that delivery of an order is delayed at the customer’s request, more than five (5) days after the order is ready for shipment, it is agreed that goods will be invoiced and due in full for C.O.D customers, and the thirty (30) day period will commence for credit customers. The purchase price of the goods and services shall not be subject to the withholding of retainage of any kind, and there shall be no condition precedent to your obligation to make full and timely payment to WoodCo beyond WoodCo's delivery of the goods. Payments received within ten (10) days of the date of invoice will receive the discount stated in the invoice. Payments received after thirty (30) days from the date of invoicing are subject to interest on the debt at the agreed rate of the lower of 1.5% of the outstanding balance for each month, or portion thereof, that the balance remains outstanding or the maximum amount allowed by controlling law. All payments when received, shall be applied to accrued interest, if any, and then towards the principal amount of the oldest outstanding invoices. WoodCo reserves the right to close any account that is more than sixty (60) days past due to new purchases and/or the cancellation of material already on order until the account is paid to current status. WoodCo further reserves the right to abolish or decrease your credit limit without notice at any time for any reason in our sole discretion and to require you to pay cash for the purchase of any goods or services at the time of such purchase or at delivery of the goods or services. In consideration of any credit being extended to you, all notices, demands for payment, presentment, protest and notice of protest are hereby waived by you as to your obligations under this Agreement. If any account is given to an attorney for collection, if suit is brought for collection, or if WoodCo incurs costs in the enforcement of any of its rights hereunder, then you agree to pay all such costs, including reasonable attorney's fees and court costs, in addition to other amounts due, upon demand.
