    2. Additional and/or Varied Services:

      1. TBCC reserves the right to vary the Price:

        1. if a variation to the Goods, or plan of scheduled Services, is requested (including, but not limited to, any change in the Client’s specifications, additional work required due to hidden or unidentifiable difficulties not evident prior to commencement of the Services, any request to investigate and/or repair any faults or defects outside TBCC normal business hours);

      2. the date specified on any invoice or other form as being the date for payment; or

In addition to the Price the Client must pay to TBCC an amount equal to any GST TBCC must pay for any provision of Services by TBCC under this or any other contract. The Client must pay GST, without deduction or set off of any other amounts, at the same time and on the same basis as the Client pays the Price. In addition, the Client must pay any other taxes and duties that may be applicable in addition to the Price except where they are expressly included in the Price.

      2. the Client has met all other obligations due by the Client to TBCC in respect of all contracts between TBCC and the Client.

    10. Receipt by TBCC of any form of payment other than cash shall not be deemed to be payment until that form of payment has been honoured, cleared or recognised and until then TBCC ownership or rights in respect of the Services, and this contract, shall continue.


  1. Provision of Goods and/or Services

    1. Any time specified by TBCC for provision of the Services is an estimate only and TBCC will not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by the Client as a result of provision being late. However, both parties agree that they shall make every endeavour to enable the Services to be provided at the time and place as was arranged between both parties. In the event that TBCC is unable to provide the Services as agreed solely due to any action or inaction of the Client, then TBCC shall be entitled to:

      1. charge the Client additionally for re-providing the Services at a later time and date; or

      2. subject to clause 15.3, terminate the contract.

    2. Provision of the Goods is taken to occur at the time that TBCC (or TBCC nominated carrier) delivers the Goods to the Client’s nominated address even if the Client is not present at the address. At TBCC sole discretion, the cost of delivery is included in the Price, unless otherwise stated.

    3. The Client must take delivery, by receipt of the Goods, whenever they are tendered for delivery. In the event that the Client is unable to take delivery of the Goods as arranged then TBCC shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for redelivery and/or storage.

    4. TBCC may deliver the Goods in separate instalments. Each separate instalment shall be invoiced and paid in accordance with the provisions in these terms and conditions.

    5. In the event the Goods ordered by the Client are unavailable, TBCC may (at their sole discretion) substitute Goods with similar specifications and quality.

    6. The Client acknowledges that items presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished Goods of the same type rather than being repaired.


  1. Client’s Property and Materials

    1. In the case of the Client’s property being left with TBCC without specific instructions, TBCC shall be free to dispose of such property at the end of sixty (60) days after TBCC receiving it and to either accept and retain the proceeds (if any) and/or charge the Client in addition to the Price to cover TBCC own costs in storing, handling and/or disposing of such property, in accordance with clause 19.

    2. Where products or equipment are supplied by the Client, TBCC accepts no responsibility for imperfect work caused by defects in or unsuitability of such products or equipment.

    2. If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following Delivery, but prior to ownership passing to the Client, TBCC is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The production of these terms and conditions by TBCC is sufficient evidence of TBCC rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with TBCC to make further enquiries.

    3. If the Client requests TBCC to leave Goods outside TBCC premises for collection, or to deliver the Goods to an unattended address, then such Goods shall be left at the Client’s sole risk.

    4. The Client acknowledges and agrees that TBCC shall not be held responsible or liable for:

      1. any loss, corruption, or deletion of files or data (including, but not limited to, hard drives-internal and external, diskettes, CD’s, DVDs, PC cards or software programmes) resulting from illegal hacking or Services provided by TBCC. Whilst TBCC will endeavour to restore the files or data (at the Client’s cost), and it is the sole responsibility of the Client to back-up any data (and/or to remove any removable media) which they believe to be important, valuable, or irreplaceable prior to TBCC providing the Services. The Client accepts full responsibility for the Client’s software and data and TBCC is not required to advise or remind the Client of appropriate backup procedures; or

      2. any unlicensed software, data loss or problems arising caused by the user or software.

    5. The Client acknowledges that any advice or recommendations by TBCC are provided on the basis of TBCC industry knowledge and experience only and shall not be deemed as specialist advice.
