2. Definitions

2.1 “Seller” shall mean M W Tractors, its successors and assigns or any person acting on behalf of and with the authority of M W Tractors.
2.2 “Customer” shall mean the person or entity described as such on the invoice, application for credit, quotation or any other forms to which these terms and conditions apply, and shall include any person acting on behalf of and with the authority of such person or entity. The seller trades in used commercial vehicles, used commercial vehicle spare parts and used plant machinery and equipment. Accordingly, all Customers are presumed to represent business Customers or commercial entities.

2.3 “UK Customer” shall have the same meaning as described in 2.2 except that the Customer will be based or reside in the UK and will have purchased Goods for delivery to a UK address. Wholesale Customers are excluded from this definition even if they are based in the UK.

2.4 “Wholesale Customer” shall have the same meaning as described in clause 2.2 except that they trade within the same industry sector as the Seller or offer the same Goods as the Seller as per clause 2.5 or, at the sole discretion of the Seller, be classified as a Wholesale Customer by the Seller. For the avoidance of doubt, a Wholesale Customer is excluded from the Seller’s Return Policy.

2.5 “Goods” shall mean Goods supplied by the Seller to the Customer (and where the context so permits shall include any incidental supply of Services as hereinafter defined) and are as described on the invoice, quotation form or any other forms as provided by the Seller to the Customer. Such goods include used commercial vehicles, used commercial vehicle “Engines” & spare parts and used plant machinery & equipment.

2.6 “Engines” shall be defined as an assembly of the following component parts: crankcase, engine block, pistons, cylinder head, valves and rocker cover. Engines may or may not be sold with Ancillary Engine Parts.

2.7 “Ancillary Engine Parts” shall mean the parts attached to the “Engine” to include but not limited to alternator, water pump, starter motor, turbo, intercooler, oil pump/cooler etc. Such parts are excluded from any Return as set out in Section 13.

2.8 “Services” shall mean all services supplied by the Seller to the Customer and includes any advice or recommendations (and where the context so permits shall include any supply of Goods as defined above).

2.10 “Price” shall mean the cost of the Goods as agreed between the Seller and the Customer subject to clause 7 of this contract.

3. Incoterms Definitions

3.1 These terms and conditions include reference to International Chamber of Commerce’s rules for transport set out within Incoterms 2010 (ICC Publication No. 715E). Incoterms used by the Seller are limited to:

(a)EXW (Ex-Works) means, in the context of these terms and conditions, that the Seller effects delivery when the Goods are placed at the disposal of the Customer at the Seller’s premises. The Seller is not obligated to load the Goods on any collecting vehicle unless by prior arrangement and any loading is at the Customer’s risk and expense; and

(b)CFR (Cost and Freight) means that the Seller delivers the Goods on board the vessel when shipping Goods to the overseas Customers. The Customer assumes responsibility for risk of loss once the goods are loaded at the specified UK port of shipment; and

(c)CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight) again means that the Seller delivers the Goods on board the vessel as per CFR (above) and also the risk of loss and damage occurs when the Goods are on the vessel. However, with CIF the Seller is responsible for arranging insurance cover against the Customer’s risk of loss or damage to the Goods during the carriage to the named port of destination; and

(d)FOB (Free on Board) means that the Seller delivers the goods on board the vessel nominated by the Customer at the named port of shipment or procures the goods already so delivered. The risk of loss of or damage to the goods passes when the goods are on board the vessel, and the Customer bears all costs from that moment onwards.

4. Application of these terms and conditions to consumers

4.1 Where the Customer buys Goods as a private individual or consumer these terms and conditions (in particular clauses relating to Risk, Disclaimer, Defects, Returns, Warranty, Cancellation and Limitation of Liability) shall be subject to any laws or legislation governing the rights of consumers and shall not affect the consumer’s statutory rights.
