This agreement extends to any extension in terms & conditions binding between the Company and the Client in the future by a company which is not now, but is then a related entity of OPS Screening & Crushing Equipment Pty Ltd ACN 009 318 674.
  2. The Client agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions within this document and any other accompanying additional terms and conditions. This is a continuing, binding and irrevocable agreement until the Company has been paid the entire price and any other monies.

  3. As a separate and independent agreement, the Client agrees to indemnify and keep harmless the Company against any losses, costs (including but not limited to costs on a solicitor / client basis) or damages of whatsoever nature incurred by the Company as a result of the Client failing to pay the Company the price or other monies or as a result of the failure or default of the Client in the performance of their covenants and obligations contained under this agreement or under any other agreement between the Company and the Client.
  4. The Client certifies that prior to the execution of any Sale of Goods or Services Contract, the Client had the opportunity to obtain independent legal advice in respect of the meaning and effect of these terms & conditions.
  5. This document forms part of any Sale or Hire of Goods or Services Contract, which is executed as a deed. The signatories to any such contract warrant they have the authority to execute such a document for and on behalf of the Client and are also executing such document/s contemporaneously in the joint and several capacity of Guarantors.
  6. The Client agrees to pay, without any deduction or set off in law or in equity whatsoever, the price outlined within any Sale of Goods or Service Contract, within the payment terms outlined in the contract.
  7. Property in any goods that are being sold by the Company to the Client will not pass to the Client until such time as the goods are paid for in full. The Client agrees that the goods supplied by the Company to, or at the request of, the Client shall be at the Client’s risk (including insurance responsibility) immediately on leaving the Company’s premises or into the Client’s custody (whichever is sooner). Ownership or property in goods hired out or under hire-to-buy agreements does not pass to the Client, unless the Hire-to-buy Contract is made null and void by a superseding Sale of Goods Contract. The Client further agrees:
    1. to store and maintain the goods in such a manner as to show clearly that they are the property of the Company and the Client shall be at liberty to sell the goods, in the ordinary course of business, but only as fiduciary agent for the Company and shall account to the Company for all proceeds from the sale;
    2. under this agreement the Company may enter upon the Client’s premises or elsewhere without notice and force if reasonably necessary to repossess the goods without being liable for trespass. The Client shall indemnify the Company for any loss or damage suffered by the Company and against all claims brought against the Company arising from the Company repossessing the goods;
    3. that in the event the Client uses the goods in some manufacturing or construction process of its own or some third party and so as to meet payment due to the Company under this agreement, the Client shall hold such part of the proceeds of such manufacturing or construction process as relates to the goods in trust for the Company. Such part shall be deemed to equal in dollar terms the amount owed by the Client to the Company at the time of the receipt of such proceeds;
    4. to better secure any outstanding payment due to the Company under this agreement, the Client appoints the Company as their attorney to collect the goods and/or to collect payment from any third party for the goods and/or services and to apply that payment against the Client’s account with the Company. If payment is collected by the company from a third party, then the Client irrevocably agrees with the Company and with the third party that in providing this attorney the third party’s liability for payment to the Client in relation to the outstanding monies is reduced by the sum of the payments collected by the Company from the third party;
    5. if the Client defaults in the due and punctual observance of all or any of their obligations or covenants under these terms, all monies owed by the Client to the Company shall become immediately due and payable.
  8. It is the Client’s responsibility to provide uninhibited access to delivery sites. If in crossing or endeavouring to avoid any obstruction damage is caused to the obstruction or the goods being supplied by the Company, then the Client agrees to indemnify the Company against all claims whatsoever for such damage. The Client agrees that any price quoted by the Company for the delivery of the goods by the Company was on the basis of uninhibited access being provided to the delivery site and in addition to any price quoted the Client shall pay the price charged by the Company for any waiting time or time incurred by the Company in obtaining uninhibited access to the delivery site.

    1. treat as discharged all or any obligation arising from any agreement with the Client;
    2. retain any security given or monies paid by the Client or available through the enforcement of any guarantee, security or bond and apply this in reduction of any sum of money owed or owing by the Client to the Company;
    3. reserve the right to enter upon the Client’s premises or enter upon any premises to which the Client has a right of access without notice and with force if reasonably necessary to take possession of and remove any goods supplied and/or hired out by the Company to the Client under this agreement or any other agreement between the Company and the Client for which payment has not been received, without being liable for trespass. The Client shall indemnify the Company for any loss or damage suffered by the Company and against all claims brought against the Company arising from the Company repossessing the goods;
    4. take such steps as it may deem necessary to mitigate the damages suffered including the putting to use, hiring out or sale of any goods supplied and/or hired under any agreement between the Company and the Client;
    5. appoint in writing any person or persons to be a receiver or receiver and manager of the property charged under clause 15 below or any part of the charged property. The receiver so appointed shall be the agent of the Client or Guarantor (whichever is applicable) and the Client or Guarantor (whichever is applicable) shall be solely responsible for all acts and omissions by the receiver appointed under this clause and for the remuneration of the receiver. The receiver shall without the need for any consent on the part of the Client or Guarantor (whichever is applicable) have all the powers conferred on a receiver under the Corporations Act 2001.
  9. Should there be any variation in the information supplied in any document by the Client to the Company concerning the Client, the proprietorship of the Client’s trading name or a variation in the structure of the Client’s business (such as conversion to, or from, a trustee), the Company shall forthwith be notified in writing by the Client by certified mail delivered to the Company’s registered office. Unless such notification is given to the Company, the Client and the Guarantors shall remain liable to the Company as though any goods or services supplied and/or hired out by the Company prior to such notification were supplied and/or hired out to, or at the request of, the original Client. The Client and the Guarantors agree this agreement also binds the Client and the Guarantors in relation to all goods and services supplied and/or hired out to, or at the request of, the Client as the proprietor (in whole or in part) or as agent for any business, and irrespective of whether the Client supplied and/or hired the goods and services under the trading name of the Client’s business disclosed on the front page of this document.
  10. If any payment made by, or on behalf of, the Client to the Company shall subsequently be avoided by law or recovered by a liquidator or trustee in bankruptcy, such payment shall be deemed not to have discharged the Client’s liability and in such event the Company and the Client shall be restored to the position in which each would have been had the payment not been avoided. The Guarantors agree to be liable to the Company for the payment so avoided.
  11.
