Terms and Conditions of Service

1. APPLICATION OF CONDITIONS

1.1 All Services are subject to these Conditions;
    1.2 These Conditions set out the entire agreement between the parties and will prevail over all communications between Us and You, to the extent of any inconsistency. No alteration or variation of the Agreement will be binding upon Us, unless such alteration or variation is specifically acknowledged and approved by Us.

    1.3 We reserve the right at all times to act reasonably to vary the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We declare, and You acknowledge, that the most up to date version of the Conditions can be found on Our website, currently at the location www.russelltpt.com.au (“Our Terms and Conditions”).

    1.4 We must take reasonable steps to inform You of the Updated Conditions and to provide reasonable notice to You before Updated Conditions will apply to govern the relationship between Us and You. You confirm that notification of the Updated Conditions on Our website, or reference to the Updated Conditions in any material provided to You will be reasonable steps by Us to inform You.

    1.5 In the event that there is any inconsistency between these Conditions and the Updated Conditions, the terms and conditions of the Updated Conditions will prevail and You acknowledge that You will be bound by the terms and conditions of the Updated Conditions.

    2. YOUR OBLIGATIONS

    2.1 You and any Owner are bound by these Conditions.

    2.2 You and any Owner warrant that:

      (1) You have the authority of all Owners to agree to these Conditions;

      (2) the Goods and Containers including their weight, contents, measure, quantity, condition, marks, numbers and value are complete and correct and are labelled in accordance with any applicable Law or Requirement; and

      (3) the Goods and Containers are properly packed in a manner adequate to withstand normal handling or storage and to comply with any applicable Law or Requirement; and

      (4) The Goods and Containers are Ready for Movement and You will provide Us with Reliable Site Access at all relevant times.

    2.3 You must give Us sufficient instructions to enable Us to adequately perform the Services.

    2.4 You must provide Us with any information concerning the nature of the Goods and their packaging that We reasonably request.

    3. RECEIPT OF GOODS

    3.1 We are not deemed to receive any Goods until:

      (1) the Person delivering them has reported to Our reception office;

      (2) We have specifically agreed to receive the Goods; and

      (3) We have had an opportunity to verify the physical condition, quantity and description of the Goods at the time of delivery.

    3.2 However, Goods and Containers may be received on the basis of tendered documentation and We are not obliged to verify their physical condition, nor the quantity and description of the Goods, and We accept no liability for the condition, quality, weight or mass or suitability of the Goods or Containers (unless the Scope Specifically indicates that We are responsible for determining the weight or mass of a Container). If You require Us to inspect the goods to verify the physical condition, quantity and description of the Goods then, unless that inspection is specifically included in the Scope, it is Extra Work for which We may charge You an additional fee, as contemplated by clause 12.3.

    3.3 We will not arrange any insurance for Goods or Containers, which (unless otherwise specifically agreed) remain entirely at Your risk during any period during which We are providing Services, unless:

      (1) You ask Us to do so in writing;

      (2) You pay the cost of the insurance, plus an additional 10% to Us as an administrative fee for Us to arrange the insurance for You; and

      (3) Insurance is available.

    4. INSPECTION

    4.1 We will inform You of any discrepancies to the Goods that We actually discover on receipt by Us or delivery by Us.

    4.2 You authorise Us to open the packaging of the Goods or the Containers to determine the nature or condition of the Goods or for any other purpose which We consider necessary (including, for example, checking the load characteristics of the Goods or Containers and, where We consider it necessary, re-loading or re-distributing the Goods or Containers in an appropriate way). If You require one of Your representatives to be present at the time of opening of the packaging of the Goods or the Containers, then You must specifically inform Us of that requirement, and You must also make Your representative available promptly, at any relevant place and at a time and in a manner which does not cause Us expense or delay.

    4.3 However, while We may elect to inspect the Goods and Containers or open the packaging of the Goods or the Containers, nothing in clauses 4.1 or 4.2 obliges Us to actually inspect or open the packaging of the Goods or the Containers. Also, You acknowledge that it will often be impractical, inappropriate, or counter-productive for Us to actually inspect or open the packaging of Goods (for example, where they are covered or weather-sealed and that the packaging of Goods may hide damage which exists before we take possession of them.

    5. DELIVERY and DISPOSAL

    5.1 We must:

      (1) Deliver the Goods to the address nominated by You, or store the Goods or provide other Services in accordance with Your instructions and the Requirements of any Authority; and

      (2) Endeavour to effect delivery of the Goods, or make the Goods available for collection, at the date and time that You request.

    5.2 However, We may be prevented from achieving the obligations mentioned in clause 5.1 by Intervening Events. We are not responsible for Intervening Events and Our obligations in clause 5.1 are varied to the extent that they become impossible or impractical to achieve, because of the occurrence of Intervening Events.

    5.3 A failure to deliver or make available for collection in accordance with clause 5.1 does not:

      (1) Confer a right of cancellation or refusal of acceptance of delivery by You; or

      (2) Render Us liable for any loss or damage (including any economic or consequential loss or damage).

    5.4 If the nominated delivery site is unattended then We may at Our option:

      (1) Deposit the Goods at the delivery site (which is conclusively presumed to be complete and appropriate delivery); or

      (2) Store the Goods in a manner determined in Our absolute discretion and You agree to indemnify Us for all costs and expense incurred in relation to that storage, including for demurrage, and to pay Us for Extra Work involved in such storage, in accordance with the Rates.

    5.5 We are conclusively presumed to have delivered the Goods in good order and condition if We obtain a receipt or signed delivery docket for the Goods.

    5.6 Instructions contained in Your bill of lading, delivery order or other documents may entitle Us to deliver to the bearer of that document despite that document providing for delivery to a named party or to his order. We are entitled to assume that the person presenting the document is the person lawfully entitled to take delivery. We are not required to verify signatures appearing on any document.

    5.7 If in Our opinion or the opinion of any Authority, Goods constitute a risk to other Goods, property, life or health those Goods may in Our discretion be destroyed, disposed of, abandoned or rendered harmless by Us without compensation to You and at Your risk and expense. For the avoidance of doubt, there will be no liability to Us for any loss which You may suffer as a result of the destruction or disposal of or other dealing with those Goods.

    5.8 If You breach these Conditions, then (in addition to Our other rights under these Conditions and at law), We may elect (after giving You notice of Your breach and a reasonable opportunity to remedy Your breach) to terminate the provision of Services to You. If We breach these Conditions, then (in addition to Your other rights under these Conditions and at law), You may elect (after giving Us notice of Our breach and a reasonable opportunity to remedy Our breach) to terminate Our provision of Services to You. However, where the Scope includes a particular transport arrangement, you may not terminate with effect on a date which occurs while we have the Goods and are in the process of transporting the Goods, unless we consent to termination. Termination does not affect Your obligation to pay for Services nor Your obligation to make other relevant payments due under these Conditions.

    6. SUBCONTRACTING and ENGAGEMENT of THIRD PARTIES for EXTERNAL COMPONENTS

    6.1 We can subcontract the Services or any part of the Services to another person.

    6.2 You acknowledge that in addition to, or as an alternative to, subcontracting, We are authorized to engage third parties on Your behalf to provide External Components, and that when third parties are engaged to provide External Components:

      (1) You have no Claim against Us for any Loss arising (directly or indirectly) from External Components, because any Claim which You may have will be against the relevant third party who is providing the relevant External Component;

      (2) Your relationship with the relevant third party is governed by whatever terms and conditions which may apply to that relationship, as documented between You (or Us on Your behalf) and the relevant third party;

      (3) When Metro-Lift Cranes, which has a business association with Us, is engaged to provide an External Component, then Your relationship with Metro-Lift Cranes is governed by the Metro-Lift Cranes Wet Hire Terms and Conditions which are currently located here: www.metrolift.com.au; and

      (4) The terms of this Clause 6.2 apply even if, as a matter of convenience for You, We provide You with one invoice which includes the cost of External Components or if We collect payment on behalf of the third parties providing External Components.

    6.3 Regardless of whether We subcontract part of the Services in relation to External Components or whether third parties are engaged to provide External Components, We are not responsible for any variation in the cost of External Components, because those variations are determined by third parties who are beyond Our control. You must pay Us (or the relevant third party directly) for any variation in the cost of External Components, even if this changes the Price.

    7. YOUR INDEMNITIES to US

    7.1 You and any Owner indemnify Us against:

      (1) All actual and contingent losses that We incur;

      (2) All actual and contingent liabilities that We incur;

      (3) Any loss of or damage to the Goods from any cause (other than Our wilful misconduct or Our negligence) which is not covered by insurance; and

      (4) All costs actually payable by Us to Our own legal representatives (whether or not under a costs agreement) and other expenses that We incur in connection with a demand, action, arbitration or other proceeding (including mediation, compromise, out of court settlement or appeal); arising directly or indirectly as a result of or in connection with:

      (5) The breach of these Conditions or any warranty You or any Owner provide in these Conditions or;

      (6) Any act or omission by You, the Owner or any person acting on Your behalf or the Owner’s behalf;

      (1) Our handling, storage, treatment (including by quarantine wash), measurement (including weighing) or carriage of the Goods;

      (2) Our inspection of the Goods in accordance with clause 4;

      (3) Delay or failure to deliver the Goods on the delivery date or delay or failure to have the Goods available at the end of the agreed storage period;

      (4) The nature of the Goods and any damage to, defect in, or shortage of the Goods; and

      (5) Sale of the Goods in accordance with the procedure set out in clause 13.2.

    7.3 You and any Owner indemnify Us against any duties, taxes or fines in relation to the Goods.

    7.4 You and any Owner warrant that no Claim will be made against Us by You or any Owner or any third party including any Authority which imposes or attempts to impose on Us any liability in connection with the Goods or Containers. To the extent that You, or any Owner or any third party or any Authority bring such a Claim, the indemnities You and any Owner give in these Conditions operate to indemnify us against all of the direct and indirect consequences of that Claim.

    7.5 If the ACL applies to the relevant relationship between Us and You, then:

      (1) any goods and services supplied by Us come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the ACL;

      (2) You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and to compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable Loss;

      (3) You are also entitled to have goods supplied by Us (if any) repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality but the failure does not amount to a major failure;

      (4) the benefits to You under these Conditions are in addition to other rights and remedies which You have under the ACL in relation to relevant goods or services; and

      (5) the indemnities in the various parts of clause 7 are intended to be read down or severed if necessary, to the extent to ensure that there is no breach of the ACL.

    8. CONDITION of NATURE of GOODS

    8.1 You must give Us an accurate and complete description of the Goods and full written details of any Dangerous Goods before We provide any Services.

    8.2 Subject to clause 8.1, You and any Owner warrant that:

      (1) the description of the Goods provided by You to Us is accurate;

      (2) the Goods are not:

          (a) infested with vermin or pests;

          (b) (except as specifically disclosed to Us as specified by Clause 8.1) of a noxious, dangerous, hazardous, explosive, inflammable, volatile, radioactive, offensive or unlawful nature, nor are they non-compliant with Australian customs or quarantine laws;

          (c) of a kind capable (except as specifically disclosed to Us as specified by Clause 8.1) of causing loss, damage or injury to Us or any third party

    8.3 If You fail to give a description and details as set out in Clause 8.1, or breach a warranty in clause 8.2, the Goods may be destroyed, disposed of, abandoned or rendered harmless by Us without compensation to You or any Owner and without prejudice to Our right of payment. For the avoidance of doubt, there will be no liability to Us for any loss which You may suffer as a result of the destruction or disposal of or other dealing with those Goods.

    8.4 You must declare in writing to Us any Goods which may be liable to customs duties or official restrictions.

    9. GOODS REQUIRING TEMPERATURE CONTROL

    9.1 If any Goods require temperature control then, before We provide any Services, You must give written notice to Us:

      (1) of the nature of those Goods;

      (2) of the temperature range to be maintained; and

      (3) that the Goods have been properly packed in the Container.

    9.2 If any of the requirements in this clause are not satisfied We will not be liable for any Claim in relation to the Goods.

    10. OUR LIABILITY

    10.1 We shall not be liable in respect of any claim for loss and/or damage of any kind howsoever caused excepting if caused by Our wilful misconduct or by Our negligence. We are not responsible if the Goods are lost, damaged, or destroyed while they are in Our possession or control, unless that loss, damage, or destruction is a direct result of Our wilful misconduct or of Our negligence. You may be able to obtain insurance against the risks of loss, damage, or destruction to the Goods while in transit or storage, due to normal risks such (for example) accident, fire, water damage, and so on. You should consider obtaining that insurance, because We are not responsible for those events and (unless We specifically arrange an insurance policy for Your particular Goods at Your request), neither We nor Our insurers will be liable to compensate You for any such loss, damage, or destruction.

    10.2 Whilst We will use best endeavours to take reasonable care in effecting access to pick up or drop off, if any damage is caused whatsoever during that process by Us (including but not limited to any part of real property) then the parties expressly agree that We are not liable for any reason and You shall indemnify Us against any claim or demand against Us for any such damage, except where that damage is caused as a result of Our reckless disregard of specific instructions, and the parties agree to each take out and effect appropriate insurances.

    10.3 If We determine the weight or mass of a container or provide You or others with information about the weight or mass of a Container, then:

       (1) unless specifically agreed, We will determine that weight or mass or provide You or others with that information for the purpose of road transport and relevant on-road compliance only;

       (2) You acknowledge that Our determination is not made using a method or done to a standard which would comply with requirements about Containers for the purpose of shipping (at sea);

        (3) We will not comply with a VGM Method in making any such determination, and Our determination and information are not suitable for use in determining a VGM; and

        (4) if You require a VGM then (even in the Scope requires Us to provide it to You) Our actual role will only be to introduce You to a third party VGM provider, who may provide You with a VGM as an External Component as contemplated by clause 6 of these Conditions, and You will have no Claim against Us for any Loss arising (directly or indirectly) from provision or use of a VGM, because any Claim which You may have will be against the relevant VGM provider who is providing the VGM and not against Us.

    10.4 If the ACL applies to the relevant relationship between Us and You, then We are not permitted to exclude Our liability for consequential loss or damage and do not attempt to do so. However, to the extent permitted by the ACL and by law generally, We will be under no liability whatsoever to You and/or any third party for any indirect, special, consequential or exemplary Loss or Claim or personal injury suffered by You and/or any third party directly or indirectly in connection with the Goods and Services or directly or indirectly arising out of the Conditions or otherwise from the relationship between Us and You and any third party, and whether actionable in contract, tort (including negligence), equity or otherwise.

    10.5 If We cause any Loss to You as a result of any effect of Our action or inaction on the Goods or in the performance of the Services, or due to any negligence of Ours or due to any other cause then (where permissible under the ACL, if it applies) the extent of Our liability will be limited to a maximum of the fee actually paid to Us by You for the Services. Our liability will also be reduced to the extent that You or any other person contributed to the Loss.

    10.6 In addition to each other limitation which applies to the relationship between Us and You, We are only required to (and Our liability is limited to) either re-supply the Services or reimburse the Customer for paying someone else to supply the Services (at Our election). If the ACL applies to the relevant relationship between Us and You, then this clause only applies in relation to Services which are not used for personal, domestic or household purposes.

    11. RISK and INURANCE

    11.1 You acknowledge that the Services are provided solely at Your own risk.

    11.2 You acknowledge that You are responsible for ensuring that no Goods required to be carried are left behind or omitted.

    11.3 You acknowledge that We bear no liability if any Goods are carried by mistake, accident, error or otherwise.

    11.4 You acknowledge that We are under no obligation to arrange insurance of Goods. You must insure the Goods.

    12. Payment and Charges

    12.1 You must pay Us all agreed amounts as soon as they are due without any deduction or deferral for any Claim or set-off.

    12.2 You must pay Us any Deposit at the time set out in the Quote, or if no time is set out in the Quote, then You must pay Us the Deposit before We provide the Services (or before We continue to provide the Services) or at any other time which We identify. The Deposit is part of the Price and is a prepayment for Our Services, and once paid, it may be immediately applied by Us for Our own benefit and for Our own purposes.

    12.3 If We undertake Extra Work for You (at Your request, or because of the occurrence of Intervening Events, or because You breach Your obligations under these Conditions, or for some other reason), then You must pay Us an amount calculated in accordance with the Rates, in addition to the Price, for that Extra Work.

    12.4 If Intervening Events occur which directly or indirectly cause Us expense or delay or which require Our equipment, resources and staff to be used or consumed to deal with them (for example – if a flood prevents delivery of Goods from occurring, or if a shipping schedule changes preventing delivery of Goods from occurring at the time originally scheduled, and if Our vehicle and driver are detained or delayed awaiting completion of delivery as a result), then You must pay Us an additional amount calculated in accordance with the Rates, in addition to the Price, to compensate Us. That additional amount may include, but is not limited to, demurrage.

    12.5 If You breach Your obligations under these Conditions and that breach directly or indirectly causes Us expense or delay or requires Our equipment, resources and staff to be used or consumed to deal with the consequences of the breach (for example – if You fail to ensure that Goods are Ready for Movement or if You fail to provide Us with Reliable Site Access, and if Our vehicle and driver are detained or delayed as a result), then (in addition to any other rights which We have as a result of Your breach) You must pay Us an additional amount calculated in accordance with the Rates, in addition to the Price, to compensate Us. That additional amount may include, but is not limited to, demurrage.

    12.6 Unless We notify You otherwise Our trading terms are net 30 days from the date of invoice.

    12.7 On all overdue amounts We are entitled to interest calculated at 4% above the base commercial overdraft rate of the Westpac Bank applicable during the period that the amount is overdue (or, the rate of 11% per annum, whichever We nominate).

    12.8 You must pay GST to Us on any taxable supply (within the meaning of the GST Law) made to You pursuant to these Conditions. Payment of GST must be made at the same time as amounts are due pursuant to Clauses 12.1 and 12.2.

    12.9 Notice from Us to You as to the amount payable by You under Clause 12.8 is conclusive evidence to the matters stated in it.

    13. LIEN and PPS

    13.1 We have a lien over the Goods in Our possession for all sums payable by You to Us.

    13.2 Where any charges remain outstanding after 28 days of giving You notice, We may sell the Goods at public auction or by private treaty. Any sale is without prejudice to other rights that We may have in respect of the charges and We have no liability to either You or Owners for doing so.

    13.3 You are liable to Us for the costs of any notice, publication, sale or attempted sale under this clause.

    13.4 On a sale under clause 13.2, We may apply the proceeds towards the payment of the expenses of sale and the balance towards payment of outstanding charges due by You.

    13.5 PPS - We are entitled to register Our Security Interests pursuant to the PPS Act, and You must do everything (such as obtaining consents, completing, signing and supplying signed copies of documents, and supplying information), which We require to be done for the purpose of ensuring that each Security Interest of Ours is enforceable, perfected, has the required and intended priority, is otherwise effective, and can be practically and lawfully enforced by Us against You (and against third parties as relevant).

    13.6 You acknowledge that:

      (1) all of Your present and after-acquired property is used in the course or furtherance of an enterprise by You, and is commercial property (as defined in s.10 of the PPS Act);

      (2) You charge all of Your present and after-acquired property (and proceeds thereof) with the performance of all of Your obligations to Us under these Conditions; 

      (3) in doing so You grant Us a Security Interest in all of Your present and after- acquired property (and proceeds thereof); and

      (4) Our Security Interest comprises a purchase money security interest (as defined in s.14 of the PPS Act) to the extent it is capable of being a purchase money security interest – for example, but not limited to, circumstances where Our Security Interest is the interest of a lessor or bailor of goods under a PPS lease; where Our Security Interest is the interest of a consignor who delivers goods to a consignee under a commercial consignment, or where Our Security Interest secures purchase money obligations (as defined in s.14(7) of the PPS Act).

    13.7 You hereby waive, as permitted by s.157(3) of the PPS Act, any right to receive a verification statement or any other notice in relation to a registration event (for example, any right under s.157(1) of the PPS Act). 

    13.8 We and You hereby enter into a confidentiality agreement (as contemplated by s.275(6)(a) of the PPS Act) and agree that (subject to section 275(7) of the PPS Act) neither You nor We will disclose information of the kind mentioned in section 275(1) of the PPS Act.

    13.9 Contracting out of certain enforcement provisions - As permitted by s.115(1) of the PPS Act, We and You hereby agree that:

      (1) s.95 and s.130 of the PPS Act, to the extent that each of those sections require Us to give notice to You, do not apply to Our Security Interests;

      (2) s.121(4) and s.132(4) of the PPS Act do not apply to Our Security Interests;

      (3) We may elect to give notice to You as contemplated by s.135(1)(a) of the PPS Act, but are not obliged to do so. 

    14. PRIVACY

    14.1 You agree to Us using Your personal information for the primary purpose of providing You with the Services or any related secondary purpose.
