For the purpose of these Conditions, "the Buyer" means the party to which VTS has agreed to supply products to. The "Contract" means the contract (whether or not recorded in writing) between VTS and the Buyer for the supply of the Buyer of the products, which shall be deemed to incorporate these conditions. "VTS" means Vintage Tyre Supplies Ltd, being the supplier of the Products to the Buyer under Contract. "Products" means any tyres or other products to be supplied by VTS under the contract. "VAT" means value added tax (or any equivalent tax) at the appropriate rate.
CONDITIONS OF SALE
These Conditions will apply to the Contract to the entire exclusion of any standard terms or conditions specified by the Buyer. Acceptance of the Products by or on behalf of the Buyer shall be deemed to be full and unconditional acceptance of these Conditions.
If VTS is unable to obtain any products or components required to enable VTS to supply the products, VTS will give notice to that effect to the buyer. Upon receipt of such notice by the Buyer, the Contract shall cease to have effect to the extent stated in such notice.
The validity of any quotation is limited to a period of 30 days from its stated date unless otherwise specifically stated in the quotation.
Advice given by VTS during telephone/fax/e-mail/internet/shows, is based entirely upon information given by the Buyer with no inspection undertaken. As such, all advice given is indicative only and all such advice should be checked by the Buyer prior to order. Where advice is given after visual inspection by VTS, such advice shall amount to an opinion only. Additionally, goods supplied are supplied only to correspond to the purpose of which goods of that kind are commonly supplied and not alternatives uses to which they may be put. No liability for failure can be accepted by this company for such alternative use, amendment or modification.
Goods ordered by The Buyer may not be compatible with vehicles which have been modified, adapted or altered. Where goods ordered by The Buyer are not compatible by reason of modification, adaptation or alteration, The Company may accept such goods back into stock entirely at its discretion, and shall either issue a refund or credit to the Buyer except where goods are specifically ordered for the Buyer where no such refund or credit will operate.
Racing tyres are supplied for competition use only and are subject to extreme heat and stress, therefore life expectancy and durability are greatly reduced. Purchasers should take advice from experts prior to purchase. Manufacturers may also limit guarantees when components are installed for competition use.
No liability is accepted by the company where purchasers attempt to modify or install Products supplied where it is known or ought reasonably to be known to the Purchaser that the part supplied is incorrectly supplied or otherwise not in accordance with the order.
While VTS will use reasonable endeavours to adhere to any delivery date agreed by VTS, the time of delivery of the Products shall not be of the essence. VTS shall not be liable to the Buyer for damages or otherwise for any delay in delivery of the Products.
If any details of the Contract are altered by the Buyer by agreement with VTS (including but not limited to the design or quantity of the Products) or if any queries are raised by the buyer, the delivery date may be extended by VTS by such period as shall be reasonable in all the circumstances.
Unless otherwise specifically stated in the Contract, Delivery of the Products will be made via a VTS nominated external carrier and charged their standard advertised rate and will normally be delivered within 3 working days. Claims in respect of Products, which arrive damaged or are short delivered must be notified to VTS in writing within 5 working days after receipt.
Only Products supplied by VTS may be returned in the case of complaint; and VTS will only accept Products which are covered by a fully completed VTS claim form available from VTS.
For items purchased through our websites, you have a right of cancellation under the Distance Selling Regulations. You may cancel the contract under the Distance Selling Regulations by notifying us no later than 7 working days after we deliver the goods that you are cancelling the contract. You may not cancel your contract with us under the Distance Selling Regulations where any item has been used or in otherways caused to be in a conditon unsuitable for re-sale. If you cancel the contract under the Distance Selling Regulations, you must take reasonable care of the goods from the time you receive them until you return them to us. If you cancel the contract under the Distance Selling Regulations you must return the goods to us at your own expense. If you cancel the contract under the Distance Selling Regulations and do not return the goods as required, we may charge you our direct costs of recovering the goods.

Brochure descriptions, website information and samples on display are indicative only and any specifications, weights, measurements and technical data (whether relating to performance or otherwise) have been supplied by manufacturers and are for guidance only.
All prices shown in VTS' current price lists are subject to alteration without notice. Such alteration shall not affect any Contract in existence at the date of such change. Purchasers should also note that published prices may vary slightly as a result of exchange rate fluctuations particularly when prices are quoted in more than one currency.
Payment must be made prior to delivery of the Products unless credit terms have been agreed in writing with VTS. All credit accounts must be made in full on the due dates. VTS will not supply Products to a customer whose account is overdue and Interest shall automatically accrue at 4% above Barclays Bank base lending rate on any amount which is not paid on the due date, such interest being calculated on a daily basis and compounded monthly. Any consignment or part consignment of the products shall if so required by VTS at any time be treated as the subject of a separate contract and be paid for accordingly.
All prices quoted are exclusive of VAT which (together with any similar tax) shall be added at the appropriate rate and paid by the Buyer.
RETENTION OF TITLE
Legal and beneficial ownership of any consignment of the Products shall pass to the Buyer only when all amounts due from the Buyer to VTS in respect of such Products and all other products supplied by VTS to the Buyer have been received in full. Until such time, the Buyer shall be entitled to sell the Products or otherwise deal with them in the ordinary course of its business but shall keep the Products separate and identifiable from any similar products held by the Buyer. If any default occurs then: The power of sale above shall automatically cease. VTS shall be entitled to enter the premises of the Buyer and to reclaim the Products.
