General sales conditions

  1. Every decision includes the plain acceptance of our general sales conditions, and will only become final after our regular confirmation.
  2. The quotations are based on the current values of wages and materials. If changes occur, we reserve the right to adapt prices accordingly.
  3. Delivery periods are indicative and exceeding these periods cannot give cause for claiming damages.
  4. When goods are sold ex factory, transport is at the risk of the addressee. By signing the delivery receipt the client acknowledges having received all goods and services in proper condition.
  5. Invoices are payable in Munsterbilzen. An interest of 1% per month will be charged ipso jure and without the need for prior formal notification on all invoices that have not been paid by the due date.
  6. If an invoice is unpaid or only partially paid eight days after notice has been sent, a lump sum of 10% of the principal sum will be owed for all additional costs with a minimum of 65 euro, without prejudice to statutory interest, as stated above.
  7. Non-payment of expired invoices or bills gives the right to demand immediate and full payment of what is owed to us, also of non-expired invoices or bills.
  8. Complaints regarding visible faults must be submitted within eight days after delivery. If the complaint is considered well founded, we only need to replace the faulty goods, without the possibility of any compensation being claimed for direct or indirect damage.
  9. Objections against an invoice must be carried out in writing within 10 days after the invoice date. The date and invoice number must always be stated.

  11. In the event of cancellation of an order, the buyer owes a lump sum of damages amounting to 30% of the principal sum.
  12. The owner/buyer is responsible for the necessary provisions, precautions and accessibility of the grounds. He is responsible for the condition and state of the destination, for which all conditions are formulated and for which no responsibility or risk is at the expense of the supplier.
  13. Drawing and/or accepting bills or other negotiable documents, does not entail novation and does not form a deviation of sales conditions.
  14. All claims regarding these invoices or contracts come under the authority of the Tongeren Courts or the Justice of the peace of the Tongeren district. The seller can, however, bring a case before the court of the debtor’s place of residence.
