1. About this contract
1.1 Our terms of service represent a contract that comes into force on agreeing the time and a date to commence for specific restoration, installation or repair work requirements to be undertaken or when a sale has been finalised. This contract is made between No.8 Woodworkshop and you, the Client/Company.
1.2 You agree that any use of the Services shall constitute your acceptance of our Terms of Service.
1.3 No.8 Woodworkshop reserves the right to reasonably change, without notice, any part or condition or wording of these terms and conditions.
1.4 These terms may only be altered or partially or fully waived by a specific written instrument (e.g. a contract or acceptance of order) duly signed by No.8 Recyclers. The terms and conditions of a specific contract or acceptance of order signed by No.8 Woodworkshop shall prevail over the present Terms of Service and the Terms of Service shall then apply as a supplement to the terms and conditions of the specific contract or acceptance of order.
2.1 The Services shall be rendered in accordance with the specification set out in the accepted Quotation and in the Agreement (as may be amended by mutual agreement from time to time).
2.2 Any Item sold in-store has the acceptance from the Client to receive the purchased Item as is. Any repair, restoration or adjustment wanted – or needed – will be characterised as extra work and a Quotation will be provided by Us.
2.3 We use recycled materials which can be reflected in the final product. By hiring Our Services, the Client understands that minor work may be required once received. The Client also ensures that any provided measurement is correct and the final product will reflect it. The Company will not be responsible for any changes requested after confirmation of the Service.
3. Consents and Property Requirements
3.1 If any consents or permits are required before, during or following completion of the work, You shall organise and pay for these and shall provide full details of the same to the Company. We will not be responsible for establishing what the requirements are, nor liable for any work done in breach of any council or other requirement if we have not been given details.
3.2 You need to ensure that we have safe access to the property and the work site and you authorise Us to enter the property and to bring vehicles, equipment and materials on to the property for the purpose of this Contract. We will exercise all reasonable skill and care but accept no liability or responsibility for any damage or loss to the access way, or to any other property or services as a result of entry on to the property, unless We have been negligent.
3.3 You warrant that you own the property or have absolute rights to authorise the work. You unreservedly indemnify No.8 Woodworkshop against any claim, damages, loss, cost or harm that may be suffered as a consequence of No.8 Recyclers carrying out the work where You were not so entitled or authorised.
4.1 The price of the Services will be in accordance with the Quotation provided by No.8 Woodworkshop.

5.3 If the Client fails to make payment in accordance with this clause, the Client shall pay in addition to the purchase price and/or such other amounts that are due and payable to the Company, a sum equivalent to the business overdraft rate published from time to time by the Kiwibank Limited until all amounts payable to the Company have been paid in full.
5.4 All payments due shall be made without any set off or deduction even if you consider you have a claim or dispute against No.8 Recyclers.
