Terms and Conditions

Goods are supplied by Beta Climbing Designs (hereinafter referred to as Beta) according to these Terms and Conditions that override any conditions of sale stipulated by the purchaser. Beta reserves the right to decline to supply.

1. Retention of Title

  • Ownership of goods supplied by Beta shall not pass to the buyer until they are paid for in full. The risk for the goods shall be borne by the buyers from the date of delivery by Beta, or its carrier, to the buyer.
  • If the invoice for the goods is not paid by the due date Beta shall, at its absolute discretion, be at liberty either to recover the goods or maintain an action for the price of the goods.
  • The buyer grants Beta, for all purposes, an irrevocable lien on the goods until the price is paid and permits Beta access to recover the goods wheresoever they are held.
  • Without prejudice to the foregoing Beta may maintain an action against the buyer for any loss or damage suffered in consequence of the buyer’s failure to pay the price of the goods.

2. Prices

Prices quoted by Beta are based on known costs at time of order. If prior to dispatch, goods have risen due to circumstances beyond our control, the goods will be invoiced at a revised price. N.B. The trade prices in our price lists are exclusive of VAT. Retail prices include VAT.

3. Carriage

Goods will be shipped “carriage paid” by Beta to most mainland destinations in the UK on orders over the value of £250 (trade excluding VAT), below that figure we reserve the right to charge carriage and handling.

Beta cannot be held liable for delivery shortages or discrepancies, unless written notice is given to Beta within 7 working days. After that time, any discrepancies found will be the responsibility of the buyer.

Beta cannot be held liable for goods which have been damaged or lost in transit, unless written notice is given to the carrier and to Beta within 7 working days of the date delivery was expected.

4. Payment Terms
