General conditions of sale and guarantee


“CONSTRUCCIONES MECÁNICAS LLAMADA, S.L.”

TERMS:
The present general sales conditions will be applied to all orders accepted by the seller and/or quotes or offers accepted by the customer or buyer. These general conditions will be the binding contract between both parties, as from the moment of agreement.

The accepting of a quote or placing of an order implies acceptance and prior knowledge of these General Sales Conditions and guarantee by the Customer, and these will govern, unless indicated otherwise either in the order or offer/quote or in a contract that was subsequently drawn up between both parties and shall there forth govern. No verbal agreement shall be valid unless with express written acceptance from CM Llamada SL.

PRICES AND PAYMENT TERMS:
The price of the MACHINE and PAYMENT TERMS are indicated in the OFFER, or on acceptance of the order by default. The machinery detailed in the offer and/or order will include a reservation of right of ownership until the total payment of said machinery is completed. THE SELLER will issue and send an invoice for each payment made by THE BUYER.

PRODUCTION PERIOD, INSPECTION AND ACCEPTANCE OF THE MACHINERY:
Production: THE SELLER will manufacture THE MACHINE in the period indicated in the offer, counting from the day of the first payment towards THE MACHINE.
THE SELLER may delay the delivery of the MACHINE if due to causes not attributable to them the production process is delayed or due to complementary work requested by the customer, which was not originally contemplated in the agreed delivery times. Just causes for a delay in the delivery will be understood to include, among others, a delay by the BUYER in paying the agreed price, a delay in the supply to the SELLER of any essential parts or pieces needed in the MACHINE by any of their usual suppliers and any possibility of a General or Sector strike which limits or hinders the transport of the MACHINE and/or any of the components or parts and while said situation lasts.
Inspection and pre-delivery of the MACHINE: Once the manufacturing of the MACHINE is complete, THE SELLER will inform the BUYER in writing of the date on which they can send their technicians and operators to inspect the MACHINE built in the COMPANY’s facilities, in Cardedeu (Barcelona, Spain). THE BUYER shall reply to the SELLER in writing with the date on which they will carry out an inspection visit. Both parties can agree these dates verbally.
During the inspection visit of the MACHINE, at the SELLER’s facilities, the MACHINE will be put into operation, in order to be checked by the BUYER.

  • a) If THE BUYER attends said inspection visit, a Machine Acceptance and Conformity document will be drawn up between both parties and an approximate delivery date will be established. Having carried out said inspection visit, the BUYER is required to pay THE SELLER the part indicated in the OFFER corresponding to “acceptance of the machine”
 
  • b) If the BUYER waivers his rights to an inspection visit, he shall then inform the SELLER in writing and this will not be considered reason for delaying payment of the MACHINE as indicated in the terms in the OFFER. Should the BUYER not answer the notice given by the SELLER in a period of 10 days, he shall be deemed to have waived their right to an inspection, requesting the direct delivery of the MACHINE. In such cases, the payment period will begin, for the part corresponding to the delivery of the MACHINE. Until said payment has been made, the SELLER will not be required to start the formalities or procedures for the transport of the MACHINE.

DELIVERY, COSTS AND RISKS DERIVED FROM THE TRANSPORT OF THE MACHINE:

  • a) As soon as the machine has been checked or said right waivered and the forms of payment have been agreed, the SELLER will make the machinery or material available to the BUYER.
  • b) As a general rule: The transport conditions will be those stipulated in the offer and/or the accepted order, according to INCOTERM
  • c) Transport insurance: THE BUYER is obliged to contract an insurance which covers 110% of the total value of the MACHINE and includes all type of risks derived from the transport and reception of the machine, as from leaving the CM LAMADA facilities until reaching the final destination.

ACT OF ACCEPTANCE AND COMMISSIONING
Once the MACHINE has arrived to the place indicated by the BUYER, THE SELLER will send a technician from their company who, fulfilling the conditions set out in Offer both regarding the length as well as costs, will draw up a Machine Acceptance and Commissioning document for the agreement and conformity of this commissioning. At this time the pertaining documentation will also be handed over as well as any training for technicians or operators.
