- Delivery of Goods
6.1 The Customer acknowledges and agrees that Pole Physics will not deliver any Goods to a PO Box address, except in exceptional circumstances.
6.2 Delivery of the Goods shall take place when the Goods have been delivered by Pole Physics or Pole Physics’s nominated carrier to the nominated delivery address in accordance with clause 6.4 below.
6.3 At Pole Physics’s sole discretion the costs of delivery are:
(a) in addition to the Price; or
(b) for the Customer’s account.
6.4 Where it is arranged that Pole Physics’s nominated carrier is to deliver the Goods then the Customer shall need to choose one of two following delivery options. Either:
(a) the Customer shall pay for a premium delivery service whereby delivery of the Goods shall only be deemed to have taken place when Pole Physics’s carrier delivers the Goods to the nominated delivery address and the Customer (or their nominated agent) has physically signed for the delivery; or
(b) it shall be the Customer’s express responsibility to make all necessary arrangements to ensure that they (or a third party acting their behalf) is able to take delivery of the Goods whenever they are tendered for delivery by Pole Physics’s carrier. Where this option (b) is chosen as the preferred delivery method then the Customer expressly acknowledges and agrees that if no person is there to receive the Goods when they are tendered for delivery that Pole Physics’s carrier may (at the Customers sole risk) leave the Goods at the delivery address nominated, and that the Customer shall not be entitled to make any claim against either the carrier or Pole Physics for any subsequent loss of, or damage to, those Goods.
6.5 Delivery of the Goods to a third party nominated by the Customer is deemed to be delivery to the Customer for the purposes of this Contract.
6.6 Pole Physics 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.
6.7 Any Goods on back-order may be delivered at a later date.

6.11 General delivery of Goods takes between seven (7) to ten (10) working days within Australia, 2-4 weeks for International delivery or as determined by the carrier. If the Goods have not been received by the Customer after this time frame, then the Customer should contact Pole Physics immediately.
6.12 Any time specified by Pole Physics for delivery of the Goods is an estimate only. The Customer must take delivery by receipt or collection of the Goods whenever they are tendered for delivery. Pole Physics will not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by the Customer as a result of delivery being late. In the event that the Customer is unable to take delivery of the Goods as arranged then Pole Physics shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for redelivery and/or storage.
7.1 Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods passes to the Customer on Delivery and the Customer must insure the Goods on or before Delivery.
7.2 If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following delivery but prior to ownership passing to the Customer, Pole Physics is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The production of these terms and conditions by Pole Physics is sufficient evidence of Pole Physics’s rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with Pole Physics to make further enquiries.
7.3 If the Customer requests Pole Physics to leave Goods outside Pole Physics’s premises for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended location, then such Goods shall be left at the Customer’s sole risk.

(a) only trained, industry professionals will use the Goods; and
(b) use of the Goods will at all times be adequately supervised and regulated; and
