CONDITIONS OF SALE
These Conditions will apply to the Contract to the entire exclusion of any standard terms or conditions specified by the Buyer. Acceptance of the Products by or on behalf of the Buyer shall be deemed to be full and unconditional acceptance of these Conditions.
If Vintage Tyres is unable to obtain any products or components required to enable Vintage Tyres to supply the products, Vintage Tyres will give notice to that effect to the buyer. Upon receipt of such notice by the Buyer, the Contract shall cease to have effect to the extent stated in such notice.
The validity of any quotation is limited to a period of 30 days from its stated date unless otherwise specifically stated in the quotation.
Advice given by Vintage Tyres during telephone/fax/e-mail/internet/shows, is based entirely upon information given by the buyer with no inspection undertaken. As such, all advice given is indicative only and all such advice should be checked by the Buyer prior to order. Where advice is given after visual inspection by Vintage Tyres, such advice shall amount to an opinion only. Additionally, goods supplied are supplied only to correspond to the purpose of which goods of that kind are commonly supplied and not alternative uses to which they may be put. No liability for failure can be accepted by this company for such alternative use, amendment or modification.
Goods ordered by the buyer may not be compatible with vehicles which have been modified, adapted or altered. Where goods ordered by The Buyer are not compatible by reason of modification, adaptation or alteration, The Company may accept such goods back into stock entirely at its discretion, and shall either issue a refund or credit to the Buyer except where goods are specifically ordered for the buyer where no such refund or credit will operate.
Racing tyres are supplied for competition use only and are subject to extreme heat and stress, therefore life expectancy and durability are greatly reduced.

No liability is accepted by the company where purchasers attempt to modify or install Products supplied where it is known or ought reasonably to be known to the Purchaser that the part supplied is incorrectly supplied or otherwise not in accordance with the order.
While Vintage Tyres will use reasonable endeavours to adhere to any delivery date agreed by Vintage Tyres, the time of delivery of the products shall not be of the essence.

If any details of the contract are altered by the buyer by agreement with Vintage Tyres (including but not limited to the design or quantity of the products) or if any queries are raised by the buyer, the delivery date may be extended by Vintage Tyres by such period as shall be reasonable in all the circumstances.
Unless otherwise specifically stated in the Contract, Delivery of the Products will be made via a Vintage Tyres nominated external carrier and charged their standard advertised rate and will normally be delivered within three working days.
