  • 1.2 All orders placed are subject to acceptance by us by delivery of the goods to you at which point a legally binding contract is constituted between us. The processing of your payment and acknowledgement of your order does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.
2. Price & Payment
  • 2.1 The price payable for the goods you order is as set out on our web site at the time you place your order or, if you order from one of our catalogues, as set out in the catalogue from which you order provided it is a current catalogue, plus any charges for delivery and insurance as set out in the order form.
  • 2.2 We reserve the right to change the price of commodity goods, due to market conditions but we will confirm the prevailing price with you before accepting your order. We are not obliged to accept your order for such goods and may decline it or limit the order quantity.
  • 2.3 On occasion, the prices payable for goods advertised on our web site may differ from those prices offered in the then current catalogue or in our trade counter, and we are under no obligation to honour any web site price if there is such a difference.
  • 2.4 Occasionally an error may occur with our web site and goods may be incorrectly priced in which circumstances we will not be obliged to supply the goods at the incorrect price.
  • 2.5 Subject to clause 2.6, we must receive payment for the whole of the price of the goods you order, and any applicable charges for delivery, before your order can be processed unless we have agreed otherwise in advance in writing.
  • 2.6 If you are an account customer, payment shall be made in full at the end of the month following the date of invoice. Time shall be of the essence for payment. We may revoke credit if you fail to make payment when due. If payment is not made when due, interest is payable at the rate of 3 per cent over Barclay's then current base rate on the amount outstanding from the due date for payment until receipt by us of the full amount (including any accrued interest) whether before or after judgement, together with any reasonable legal or other recovery costs.
  • 2.7 If you pay by cheque, please note that we use the Transax service from Certegy Limited to provide a warranty for your cheque.

Certegy will charge you an administrative fee for collection of a dishonoured cheque.
3. Delivery & Title
  • 3.1 Unless you order and collect the goods from our trade counters, we will deliver them in accordance with your order. A valid signature will be required on collection or delivery.

You must not schedule or commence any installation work until after you have received your order and checked all the goods for any defects or missing parts.
  • 3.2 For reasons of health and safety and to avoid any property damage, most items can only be delivered to a ground floor location at the delivery address. You must therefore make your own arrangements at your own risk if the relevant item needs to be transported from the delivery location.

In spite of delivery having been made, title in the goods shall not pass to you until you have paid the price for the goods in full and no other sums whatsoever shall be due to us from you. Until title in the goods passes from us, you shall hold the goods on a fiduciary basis as bailee and shall store the goods at your own cost separately from all other goods in your possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as our property.

Customers must satisfy themselves that materials ordered conform to any codes relevant to the site and that the design and construction of a building for which they are used is to standards of good building practice. Hints and work practice advice given in the catalogue and over the telephone are given in good faith but Meridian Building Plastics cannot be held responsible for interpretations made of such that are those not intended by Meridian Building Plastics.
