Who can use these Supply and Installation Terms & Conditions?
A business that supplies and installs equipment can use these Supply and Installation terms and conditions. The supplier could be a general contractor offering to do this type of work or a specialist supplier of, say, boilers, bathroom or kitchen equipment in its standard terms.
What is this document for?
Our template comprises a quotation form plus a set of Terms & Conditions which are fairly balanced, while to some extent favouring the supplier.
And when the client accepts the quotation, the parties have a sensible contract under which the supply and installation services will be performed. This helps to protect the interests of both client and supplier.
What are the main issues?
Scope of work and timing. These are important, particularly where the supplier needs an order from the client before the supplier can place its own order with the manufacturer. Timing with regard to installation also needs to be agreed in advance but this will usually depend availability of the equipment.
Client obligations Among these, the client will provide access to the site when it’s required and any facilities that are specified/agreed. This could include storage as well as supply of power/water etc.
Variations. If the client wants any changes, the supplier will give an estimate for acceptance before any variation is commenced.
Price and payment. With a contract for supply of equipment, the supplier will often need an upfront payment. He will include this and the payment stages and amounts in the quotation
Handover & Liability. The supplier will probably accept a period after handover for fixing defects, probably six months. However, if there is manufacturer’s equipment guarantee, unless the defect is attributable to the supplier’s work rather than the equipment, the client will be responsible for contacting the manufacturer direct. Our contract has a clause designed to exclude any supplier liability after the defect period has come to an end.
What detailed terms does the document contain?

- contract formation
- general obligations of supplier
- general obligations of client

- property and risk
