The price payable by you is the price stated as the Total; or where no price is stated, our current standard price for the services provided. Where no sum is included in respect of VAT the price stated overleaf shall be exclusive of VAT. We may increase the price payable by you to cover any increase in our costs in providing the services, goods, and materials. We will inform you in writing of any price increase made after which case you may cancel the agreement between us if you do not accept the new price.
We shall invoice you for the work undertaken and any goods and materials supplied immediately after the work is done and/or the goods and materials are supplied and the Total Due on the invoice shall be payable by you immediately.

When we have completed the work and/or supplied goods and materials we shall invite you to inspect the work and/or the goods and materials and shall ask you to sign the docket indicating receipt of the goods and materials and that the work has been done. Your signature on the docket will constitute acceptance of any work done or goods, and/or materials supplied.

You must let us know of anything which you believe may present a hazard or danger to any person carrying out work before such work is started. You must also make sure that we have clear access to any relevant drains and covers and provide us with a supply of mains electricity and water. If we incur additional work or expense because of your failure to provide us with clear access, mains electricity and water, we may charge you a reasonable additional sum in respect of such additional work and/or expense.

Our guarantee will not apply to our workmanship or goods and materials supplied by us where after inspecting the site or the equipment on which you have asked us to work and after considering he work you have asked us to do, we consider that we are unable to offer our guarantee in which case we shall inform you of our decision and indicate overleaf that our guarantee does not apply.
Neither we nor you shall be liable for any breach of our respective obligations under the agreement between us where either of us is unable to perform those obligations because of a reason beyond our control.
