10. Your Liability
You are liable to us for all goods charged to your Account, until paid in full.
11. Ownership of Goods
Ownership of goods passes to you at time of payment in full. We remain the owner of all goods covered by an invoice until you have paid in full the invoice value of those goods.
12. Delivery Charges
The rate charged for the shipping of your order is based on the weight and/or size of your products, and your location. Before the final checkout step you will be shown what the cost of shipping will be and you will have the option not to proceed with finalising your order.
13. Return of Goods
Returns (Australian customers only)
If you are dissatisfied with an item, you can return it for a full refund. The item must be returned to us, at your expense, within ten days of receipt and in excellent saleable condition with all packaging material, brochures and instruction materials etc included. If the item is damaged in transit back to us because of poor repacking, we reserve the right to refuse a refund.
GOODS AND INVOICES MUST BE CHECKED ON ARRIVAL. ALL DISCREPANCIES, INCORRECT OR DAMAGED GOODS MUST BE NOTIFIED TO US WITHIN 3 DAYS OF RECEIPT, OTHERWISE CLAIMS WILL NOT BE RECOGNISED.
For faulty items, we will replace or repair the item where feasible, or we will refund all or part of the purchase amount. Please email us at email@example.com within the 3 day time limit with details of the faulty item/s as follows and include photos if possible.
Problem(s) with goods
Proposed solution (i.e) Replacement
Damaged items will then need to be returned to us, however goods for return will not be accepted without prior arrangement and authorisation by an officer of Saltco. All freight charges for returning items will be the responsibility of the buyer unless otherwise agreed by us.
If we accept responsibility for return freight costs, those costs must be reasonable and not excessive - it is up to you to repack the goods with adequate padding in a properly sized box for the goods and not an oversized box. Australia Post and Couriers charge per cubic measurement and not necessarily dead weight. Please contact us if you have any queries about repacking goods.
Never send an item back before contacting us first and agreeing on a remedy. We may be able to come up with an alternative solution that will save you from having to return the item.
We take no responsibility for damages and losses that occur during shipping.
Please do not damage the packaging and always send back the item in its original packaging unused, undamaged and unmarked otherwise we may charge a repacking fee.
We do not guarantee that the products you receive will be exactly the same as those displayed in the photos on this website. Slight differences between the product and the website photos that don’t affect the functionality of the product are not grounds for a refund. Manufacturers sometimes make slight changes to products without letting us know, making it difficult for us to always have the website photos updated before the modified products go out. In addition, many of our products are handmade and variations are part of the character of the product and should not be considered a fault.
Returns will not be accepted on International Orders.
You have the right to cancel an order at any time before shipment. Any such cancellations need to be received by us via email. If the order has not been dispatched we will immediately refund you if your payment has been processed, minus a 3% surcharge if paid via credit card transaction. However, please note that we generally ship out goods the same day the order is received, in which case cancellation of your order will not be possible.
Normal delivery times are: NSW 1-3 days, Victoria and South to Mid Queensland 3-5 days, South Australia 5-7 days, North Queensland and Tasmania 7-9 days, WA and NT 9-12 days. International postage times vary - please send an email and we will estimate delivery time for you. Please note Saltco does not offer ‘same day’ or "next day" delivery. Our experience indicates that most "Express" parcels we send will be delivered in a similar time frame as Regular Post parcels.
Out Of Stock Items
Whilst we make every effort to carry ample stock of all products at all times, it is sometimes impossible to predict demand which can at times lead to items being out of stock for a short period of time. Most items are usually on order from the distributor and stocks are generally replenished regularly. In these circumstances we will endeavour to dispatch your order within three days from the date of purchase. However, if we are out of stock of an item for longer than this and payment has been made we will generate a credit to your account or a refund can be requested.
We will forward a Statement of Account once a month only where there is a transaction or payment activity or where there is a balance outstanding on your account.
15. Payment Methods
The Applicant acknowledges that Saltco accepts payments by means of:
Credit card – Visa and MasterCard
16. How we apply Payments
We will apply payment against Accounts according to your remittance advice (where viable) or the oldest debt if no remittance advice is provided
17. Default Account
We may re-take possession of any goods or associated charges, not paid in full, by entering the Applicant’s premises or vehicle/s without liability for trespass or any resulting damage.
This includes those premises or vehicle/s of an associated company or agent where the goods are stored or displayed and we believe there are reasonable grounds that we may find goods in whole or in part, within.
We may keep or re-sell these re-possessed goods at our discretion. If the Applicant has sold all goods and does not present payment on request of the Supplier, we will take action against the Applicant.
An account service fee of 2% + GST (Min $5.00 + GST) will be charged on outstanding balances at 60 days or more.
We may list you with Equifax Advantage (Credit Reference Association) where you are in default.
18. Debt Recovery, Expenses and Disbursements
You agree to pay for all costs, disbursements and other expenses incurred by us in recovering or attempting to recover any monies outstanding by you, including, but not limited to, fees incurred by our debt recovery agency, solicitor, sheriff, Court Hearing etc.
19. Default Interest
Default Interest will be charged, at our discretion, on ALL overdue Accounts at the rate of 11% per annum, calculated on a daily basis from the date in which the Account first became due. Payments received from the Applicant will be offset against any default interest first and all such charges will be payable on demand.
Any breach, of this Agreement may lend cause for Saltco to suspend or forfeit credit facilities without notice and/or close your Account. The customer may be required to trade on a “pre-payment” basis, until, at the discretion of Saltco, credit facilities are re-instated.
21. Right to Vary Terms of Trade.
We reserve the right to vary these terms and conditions at any time without notice.
