The following are the standard Terms of Trade under which we do business.
When Ordering, the following details must be supplied:    
(1) what you want to purchase
(2) your purchase order (or name of person authorised to purchase)
(3) full legal name of your business and its office address (for accounts)
(4) full street or physical address (for courier delivery)

Payment:   Customers with approved credit pay on standard terms as specified in the header of the invoice.

Method of Payment: direct credit, cheque, or cash (not credit card).

Payment in advance: proforma invoicing may apply for first time customers, small value orders, import to order purchases, internet sales (Trademe, Sella etc), and/or where circumstances may dictate (overdue account, stop-credit etc)

Proforma Invoice:  Formalises prepayment required at the price negotiated (i.e. not an offer). Orders will be processed on confirmation of payment and a GST Tax Invoice Receipt will be supplied with delivery.

Period valid:

  1. Goods held in NZ: payment within 7 days.
  2. Goods imported to order: payment within 24 hours (can be extended while the overseas currency exchange rate doesn't change). If the dollar exchange rate changes before payment is received, we may have to adjust the price. The rate typically changes daily.

Statements are not issued:  Please pay on invoice.


Policy on Overdue Accounts:    

  • If there is any good reason why an invoice should not be paid by the due date, please advise us before it is "overdue".  
  • Overdue accounts remaining unpaid beyond the due date for payment without agreement may be placed with credit control.
  • It is our standard policy to automatically revert customers to prepayment following a problem with payment overdue.
  • In the event of an unresolvable dispute, the matter may be referred for independent adjudication (Disputes Tribunal etc).

Import Spot Pricing:  Spot price references the total cost at the  currency exchange rate on the day (often the best option for buying).

Customers wishing to take advantage of the day Spot Price rate please note:

To secure an order at the day spot price, payment in full is required the same day as the offer. If we can transfer payment overseas on the same day then all costs and charges are fixed for that transaction with no additional charges. This option is for the benefit of small business as it simplifies process.

At our discretion, for customers not able to take advantage of this process, a spot price offer can be extended to 7 days. In this case a deposit of 60% is required which must be paid within the 7 days. The order will be held and not processed to the factory until payment has been confirmed. The remaining 40% is due by the 20th month following delivery (after importation process),  plus any additional costs  incurred in the interim due to factors beyond our control between the dates of quotation and completion of import process. This option is useful to larger customers placing bigger orders

Cancelling Orders.  Most of the goods we import on behalf of our customers are not off-the-shelf items but are made specifically to order by an overseas manufacturer and preconfigured to our regional settings. A customer who has placed a firm order involving manufacturing process either overseas or in NZ and who then wishes to cancel the order must inform us as early as possible in the process. This is because there may be costs involved in cancelling an order where it has reached the production phase. In such cases the customer will be expected to pay any costs associated with a late cancellation.


Expanded Details:
1)        We offer to import select product as a service and on behalf of trade customers who contact us knowing what they want, providing we can get it, the price is acceptable, and it is understood there will be a delay until it arrives from the overseas suppliers. (delivery times from experience can range from 3 days to 45 days depending on product type, supplier manufacturing schedules, and country of origin). Product we source is typically made to order to customer specification so can not be considered as regular stock suitable for later sale to other customers.
Note: Where customer "Terms of Purchase" may conflict with our "Terms of Supply" we are unable to vary our terms where we are constrained by external factors beyond our control (as imposed on us by the nature of the international import trade). We are always willing to work with such customers for example where they may be able to purchase through their inhouse sub-contract arrangements but otherwise in the case of irreconcilable difference we regret we may not be in a position to supply.
2)         Overseas purchases must be paid for as per our standard payment options when the order is placed. Orders are not refundable or returnable except in special circumstances by mutual agreement. These are terms as set by our overseas suppliers as a condition for supply of small orders and generically represent standard practice for this type of trade.
3)       RTB (Return To Base) Warranty: If you believe it has failed through manufacturing process defect within the period of agreement, you must return it to us for assessment. Subject to confirmation of cause of failure being a defect, the equipment may be repaired or replaced and returned at no charge.

Note: Warranty or service agreement does not cover failure caused by external factors unrelated to manufacture process such as local power spikes, lightning, vandalism, carelessness, user errors, subsequent damage resulting from neglect to take protective action (eg switch it off) when a fault first occurrs, or damage resulting from failure to take reasonable action to prevent further deterioration etc.

Actual Example: "it was buzzing loudly for a week but it kept working then it started smoking so we called you"

The fault was caused by a loose paperclip which fell into the mechanism through carelessness but which could have been removed to prevent the expensive damage that subsequently occurred through inaction.

Please tell us immediately of any problems within the warranty period!


Disclaimer  We provide support for product we supply but not for external service applications supplied by others.We cannot intrude on Agreements and Contracts you may have with others.(eg we do not service your modems or routers or telephone lines just because you may access your time clock over the internet).

4)        Please contact us for current pricing before placing an order. Final sales prices for import product are indexed to the NZ dollar international currency exchange rate which changes minute by minute and which may have changed the final prices from those seen on this website.
5)        NZD pricing is by default exclusive of GST except where indicated.
6)        The rule is "Do not place an order if you are not 100% committed to buying the equipment". We will do our best to answer your questions and supply requested material so that you can be informed before you make a decision to purchase. If you do place an order, you will be expected to pay for it. These are not off-the-shelf retail products which can be restocked where each order is individually manufactured per customer. For this reason there are no returns and no refunds outside of warranty related matters excepting by mutual agreement in special circumstances.
7)        Again - Please note our Policy on Overdues accounts and on orders which are placed but not paid for (see above). This warning should not have any relevance for a reliable and honest customer but we have to put it in here to cover ourselves against eventualities.
Thanks for your understanding
