Terms & Conditions of Sale

Scope: All goods and services (“Products”) supplied by Australian Diversified Engineering Pty Ltd (“ADE”) are supplied on these terms and conditions of sale (see below).


Order Acceptance: No order shall be binding on ADE until accepted by ADE. An individual contract for the supply of Products, on these terms and conditions, is formed on acceptance by ADE of an order from the Customer. ADE reserves the right to accept any order in whole or in part. Where ADE makes a part delivery of any order, such delivery shall constitute a separate contract. No order may be cancelled or varied without approval by ADE.


Payment Terms: All credit orders are accepted by ADE subject to satisfactory credit approval of the Customer, and are governed by ADE’s credit terms and conditions in force at the time of order placement, including the right to charge interest.

For orders requiring a deposit, a deposit invoice will be generated at time of receiving of the Customer purchase order with invoice payment terms as per the ADE supplied quote.

Title to Products: Ownership in the Products does not pass to the Customer until the Customer has discharged all outstanding indebtedness, whether in respect of the Products or otherwise, to ADE. Risk in the Products will pass on delivery to the Customer. Delivery may not be refused by the Customer. The Customer grants to ADE, its agents and servants, leave and licence to enter at any time on and into any premises occupied by the Customer to inspect, search for or remove any of the Products. If the Products are sold by the Customer, the Customer acknowledges that such sale is made by the Customer as bailee for and on behalf of ADE, to hold the proceeds of sale on trust for ADE, in an account in the name of ADE, until payment in full for the Products is made to ADE.


ADE reserves the right to charge for delivery of the Products at any time, notwithstanding that it may not have previously done so. Administrative fees may also be imposed for orders under certain dollar values. Where prices are stated as inclusive of delivery, delivery is to the delivery point specifically accepted by ADE.
