Acceptance is conditional upon the availability of the Products and fitting capacity, at the sole discretion of the Seller. Acceptance of the delivery of the Products constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions.
2.1 All Goods are payable at the time of order, unless the Purchaser has an approved credit account. If the Purchaser has an approved credit account Payment for the Goods shall be not later than 30 days from the date of invoice.

At its sole discretion the Seller may cancel or amend any credit limit previously granted.
3.1 The price of the Goods shall be the price specified by Tyre Medics in the Order Confirmation, or, where no price is quoted in the Order Confirmation, the price listed in Tyre Medics price list or website text on the Tyre Medics Site current at the date and time of the Order Confirmation.
3.2 Tyre Medics reserves the right, by giving notice to the Customer at any time before issuing of the Order Confirmation, to increase the price of the Goods to reflect:
3.2.1 any increase in the cost to Tyre Medics which is due to any factor beyond the control of Tyre Medics (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture).

5.1 In the event of non-payment or the appointment of a Receiver or Administrator over the whole or part of the Purchaser’s assets the Seller may remove the Products. Where the Products are tyres or batteries upon the said removal of the tyres or batteries by the Seller a charge will be made by the Seller for the amount of tread or battery life used and for the fitting/removal costs involved. The Purchaser agrees that in the event of the Seller requiring to repossess the tyres or batteries the Seller will not be responsible for re-fitting the original tyres or batteries which by then may have been disposed of.
6.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing the Seller will remove all worn casings, old batteries and any other used items which have been replaced by new Products and they will be disposed of at the discretion of the Seller.
The Seller has facilities to retain worn casings for inspection. Details are available upon request.
7.1 All queries will be dealt with at the original fitting location. It is the responsibility of the Purchaser to return the vehicle to the original fitting location for this purpose.
7.2 In the event of a complaint concerning a suspected manufacturing defect the Purchaser will pay in full for a replacement Product which the Seller will fit. The Seller will then return the Product that is suspected of being defective to the manufacturer for inspection. If the manufacturer confirms that the Product is defective a refund will be made. The amount of the refund will take into account the nature of the defect and the amount of use that the Purchaser has derived from the Product. The decision of the manufacturer will be final.
8.1 Tyres will be repaired to BS AU159 which involves removing the tyre from the wheel in order that a full inspection can be carried out to ascertain if any internal damage has occurred. As the objective is to return the vehicle to a roadworthy condition it will be necessary for the Seller to have a replacement tyre available in case the punctured tyre is found to be damaged beyond the scope of BS AU159.
9.1 If and to the extent that any provision or any part of the Seller’s conditions are illegal, void or unenforceable, then such provision or part thereof shall be deemed to be severable from the remaining provisions or parts all of which remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
