terms and conditions.
1. Orders / Purchases
Any advice supplied to the Customer does not constitute an offer for sale and BLG reserves the right to decline any order for Goods.
All prices given are in NZ dollars and exclusive of Goods and Services Tax (GST) unless expressly stated otherwise and are subject to change without notice and at the sole discretion
of BLG; however any quotation given by BLG is valid for 7 days. BLG reserves the right to immediately terminate and without any notice or liability, any agreement to supply Goods.
A full GST invoice (inclusive of delivery and shipping costs) will be issued on Delivery or immediately following installation.
The Customer has a limited right to cancel its order and be refunded monies paid provided e-mail advice to this effect including the order number is provided to BLG within 12 hours of
making the order. If the Customer cancels its order outside this time and the order is being delivered the Customer shall meet all of BLG's freight costs including any costs to return
the goods to BLG in a timely manner.
Where the Customer requires a purchase order number to execute the order, the responsibility is on the Customer to supply such number at the time of the order placement.
The Customer may not withhold payment, after receiving delivery of Goods, due to an omission of a purchase order number being supplied.
The Customer shall pay in full and without deduction, setoff or counterclaim for the Goods upon placing an order or where agreed, on the 14th day following the date of the invoice.
BLG reserves the right to charge interest on overdue accounts at the rate of 2.5% per month on the balance outstanding from the date payment was due until payment is received.
The right to charge interest is without prejudice to BLG's other rights in respect of non or late payment.
BLG further reserves the right to recover from the Customer all costs and/or expenses incurred in repossession of the Goods or instructing a solicitor or debt collection agency to
recover any amount overdue for payment and such costs and expenses shall bear interest as provided for above.

BLG shall not be liable in any way for any loss or damage (including consequential loss or damage) arising from delays beyond its control in relation to the supply,
delivery and installation of Goods. Risk in the Goods shall pass to the Customer when Goods are delivered to the delivery point agreed with the Customer; or to any agent of the
Customer, or are in the control of the Customer or when the Customer has title to the Goods; whichever is the earliest event.
BLG will endeavour to have Goods delivered and installed on the agreed delivery dates but will not be held liable for any direct or consequential loss arising from late delivery for
any reason. Late delivery does not entitle the Customer to cancel any order or withhold payment.
The Customer acknowledges that the Company may use an independent carrier for delivery of any items. If the Customer is not at the agreed delivery point, the carrier may leave the
Goods at the delivery point at the Customer's risk.
If the Customer fails or refuses to take delivery of any Goods at an agreed delivery time, BLG may (without limiting any other right BLG may have) charge the Customer for expenses
incurred including (without limitation) waiting time, storage and transportation charges.
BLG shall in good faith consider any complaint or warranty claim (pursuant to clause 6. below) that a Customer may have with the Goods and may refund the sale price and/or the
delivery costs provided that the Goods are returned in a saleable condition within a reasonable time of delivery.
BLG shall retain full legal and equitable title in all supplied Goods, and title to all supplied Goods shall not pass to the Customer, and there shall be no right to deal with,
on-sell or encumber or mortgage Goods, until all payments (including delayed or deferred payments on a credit basis and any enforcement costs or penalty interest) have been paid in
full and without deduction, setoff or counterclaim to BLG.
BLG reserves the right to enter onto the Customer's premises or upon any third parties' premises without notice where Goods are located, to take possession of Goods and BLG shall not
be held responsible nor liable in any manner whatsoever for any damage caused or any loss that results from such action. The Customer hereby grants BLG and its agents an irrevocable
and on-going licence and authority to enter upon any applicable premises and to repossess Goods in the event of any default by the Customer under these terms.
BLG can issue proceedings to recover the price of Goods sold notwithstanding that ownership of the Goods may not have passed to the Customer.
