General conditions of the Joinery Estimating

All work ordered from Joinery Estimating requires that these general conditions between Joinery Estimating and the customer are accepted and excludes the customer’s general or special conditions, unless a prior written agreement to the contrary is accepted by Joinery Estimating.

1) Proposals, formation of the contract
1.1 General proposals and priced quotations are for indicative purposes only.

1.2 Prices and delivery times can be changed at any time if  Joinery Estimating is not made completely aware of the entire details beforehand. The contract comes into operation from the time when the customer accepts the Joinery Estimating proposal in writing or verbally or, in cases where no proposal has been made, when Joinery Estimating confirms in writing an estimate order placed by the customer.

1.3 Any commitments made only commit Joinery Estimating after explicit, written confirmation on the part of Joinery Estimating.

1.4 When Joinery Estimating has any reason to think that the customer may not be able to fulfil its payment obligations, Joinery Estimating is authorised at any time to require the customer to set up satisfactory financial guarantees.
 
2) Modification/cancellation of estimate orders
2.1 In the event that significant modifications to the estimate order are made by the customer after conclusion of the contract, Joinery Estimating is authorised to change the delivery time and/or the fees required or to refuse the order. In the latter case, the customer is required to pay for the work already done.

2.2 In the event of the customer cancelling a estimate order, the costs of cancellation will be for an amount equal to the cost of that part of the estimate which was completed up the time of such cancellation. In such cases, Joinery Estimating cannot guarantee the quality of the work delivered.
 
3) Execution of estimate orders, professional secrecy
3.1 Joinery Estimating undertakes to keep all documents supplied by the customer strictly confidential and to take action to require that this obligation is respected in all circumstances by its suppliers. Nevertheless it cannot be held liable for violation of professional secrecy by its suppliers if it can prove that Joinery Estimating was not able to prevent such violation.

3.2 Whenever possible, the customer will supply Joinery Estimating with reference documents showing the rates to be used in the estimate.
 
4) Delivery time and date of delivery
The delivery time stated in the contract is given for information purposes only. Joinery Estimating is required to inform the customer without delay if delivery cannot be made within the agreed delivery time.
 
5) Fees and payment
5.1 Unless agreed to the contrary, Joinery Estimating’s fees are calculated on the basis of the price per hour applied by Joinery Estimating.
5.2 All amounts exclude VAT.

5.3 Invoices must be paid net in the currency shown on the invoice within 7 calendar days from the date of the invoice.
 
6) Disagreement and disputes
All disputes concerning the quality or the delivery time of the work ordered can only be accepted within a period of 30 (thirty) days from the date of delivery of the order. After that 30 (thirty) day period, no claims whatsoever will be accepted by Joinery Estimating. Claims do not under any circumstances exempt the customer from its obligation to pay for the translation supplied.
 
7) Liability, guarantee
 Joinery Estimating can only be held liable for damage which is the direct and manifest consequence of negligence which can be imputed to Joinery Estimating. Joinery Estimating’s liability can under no circumstances exceed the amount of the invoice, not including VAT, for the estimate order concerned.
