3.3.1 Hold such Goods on a fiduciary basis as BPS’ Bailee;
3.3.2 not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods and store the Goods separately from all other items held by the Customer so that they remain readily identifiable as BPS’ property whilst maintaining the Goods in satisfactory condition and keeping them insured against all risks for their full price from the date of delivery;
3.3.3 Notify BPS immediately if it becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 7.2; and give BPS such information relating to the Goods as BPS may require from time to time.

4.2.2 If any further movement of vehicle or Goods including if a BPS delivery vehicle is driven off hard road and or where a BPS representative(s) is required to assist with unloading is required, the Customer shall indemnify BPS against all and any liability arising from such further movement or unloading, including but not limited to fuel cost, labor and transport.
4.2.3 In the case of clause 4.1.2 delivery of the Goods shall be completed on the completion of loading of the Goods at the Delivery Location.

4.4 If BPS fails to deliver Goods, its liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Customer in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods.
4.5 BPS shall have no liability for any failure to deliver goods to the extent that such failure is caused by an event beyond BPS’ control or the unavailability of access to the Delivery Location or the Customer's failure to provide BPS with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of goods.
4.5.1 For the avoidance of doubt BPS will not be liable for any damages whatsoever whether direct or indirect (including any liability to a third party) resulting from any delay in delivery of the Goods, or failure to deliver the Goods in a reasonable time howsoever the delay or failure is caused.
4.6 If the Customer fails, in the case of clause 4.1.1 to accept delivery, or in the case of clause 4.1.2 to take delivery, of the Goods within five (5) days of BPS notifying the Customer that the Goods are ready, then delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to have been completed at 9.00 am on the fifth day after the day on which BPS notified the Customer that the Goods were ready and BPS shall store the Goods until delivery takes place, and charge the Customer for all related costs and expenses (including insurance).
4.7 If fourteen (14) days after the day on which BPS notified the Customer the Goods were ready for delivery the Customer has not accepted delivery of them, BPS may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods and, after deducting reasonable storage and selling costs, account to the Customer for any sum received from the Customer as payment of the price of the Goods and any excess over the price of the Goods disposed of or charge the Customer for any shortfall below the price of the Goods.
4.7.1 BPS may in any case recover its losses caused by a failure to take delivery or make collection.
4.8 BPS may deliver or procure delivery of the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate Contract.

4.9 Immediately on delivery the Customer shall inspect the Goods delivered and inform BPS immediately by telephone and in writing within 3 days of any shortage or any defect apparent on normal visual inspection. The Customer shall check, complete and send to BPS immediately following delivery the relevant delivery documents provided by BPS (“Delivery Documents”) to confirm that the Goods are delivered and defect free, or otherwise, as the case may be.
4.9.1 Liability for short delivery is limited to making good the shortfall

The credit limit may be reviewed at any time by BPS save that there will be no administration charge payable in respect of any outstanding overdue balance arising solely as a result of such adjustment.
5.6 In the event of non-payment, in accordance with these Conditions the whole of the price for all goods supplied to the Customer shall become due and payable.
