On receipt of an enquiry from you, AviBuy may provide a quotation setting out the proposed goods to be provided to you and the applicable charges (“Quotation”).  This will be based on the information provided to us by you.  The Quotation is not to be considered an offer by us to you, nor shall it be binding on either party. It is your responsibility to ensure that you fully understand the contents of the Quotation and that its description of the Products is correct, full and accurate.  If the Quotation is incorrect in any way, you should contact us to ensure that a correct and agreed form of the Quotation exists.

The contract between you and us will only be formed at the time when AviBuy send you the Invoice; this is your and AviBuy’s acceptance of these Terms and the agreed Quotation (and nothing else) which apply.  Together, these  (that is the Invoice and the Quotation) constitute the Contract between you and us.

Thereafter, the price shall not be varied. You acknowledge and agree that your Contract is complete, accurate and legally binding.

  1. Products

In consideration for the payment of the charges and prices of Products and Exchange services set out in the Invoice part of the Contract (“Charges”) and subject to these Terms, AviBuy shall provide the Client those products described in the Quotation part of the Contract (“Products”).  AviBuy gives you, the Buyer, no warranty that the description of the Products you Order was correct, as this is entirely your responsibility.  AviBuy shall use reasonable skill and care in the provision of the Productsin accordance with the Terms herein.

  1. Exchange Programme

AviBuy Limited may offer an exchange programme to you for certain Products but this is at AviBuy’s sole discretion. In the event that a Products exchange programme is offered, AviBuy Limited will provide you with a Quotation setting out the proposed Products to be provided to you in exchange

for the specified goods you are exchanging (“Goods”) and the applicable AviBuy Charges for the exchange which will be based on the information provided by you.  Exchange items are supplied correct to part number. Any parts remaining after fitting, i.e. terminal covers, hardware, brackets, clamps, etc. must be returned with the core.  Component cores returned incompletely will be subject to additional billing for any parts missing.

The Standard Exchange price provided in the Quotation will cover all costs associated with the routine overhaul/repair of the component Goods concerned.  Additional Charges are payable by you The Buyer if the exchange Goods requires additional work above that of a normal overhaul / repair. Such additional Charges consist of – but are not limited to – the replacement of missing items, additional rework or salvage costs, the replacement of life limited parts and the modification costs to bring the core component Goods to the same and / or mandatory standard of the component supplied by AviBuy.  The combined cost of the exchange and additional charges will not exceed the current Manufacturer’s List Price for such Goods.

Flat Rate Exchange transactions in a Quotation are a single price payable by you The Buyer with no additional charges, provided that the returned component core Goods:

  • Are of the same part number and modification status as the part originally supplied
  • Are economically repairable at less than 55% of the cost of a new equivalent replacement part from the same manufacturer as the Goods
  • Are complete with no missing or unauthorised parts
  • Have no missing or incomplete identification or data tags
  • Have not been previously dissembled or sent for evaluation by a repair facility;
  • Have not been subject to accident, incident, fire, flood or mishandling and
  • Have, in AviBuy’s opinion, and in the case of life limited components, at least one complete overhaul life remaining

Flat Rate Exchange component core returns in a Quotation will be subject to additional Charges which will be payable by you The Buyer should they be found not to comply with the conditions listed above or otherwise supplied to you by us.  For the purpose of clarity, should there be additional Charges, they will be levied at cost.  The component core Goods will be deemed to be beyond economical repair when the cost to repair exceeds 55% of the value of those Goods when sold and charged as Products as described in the Quotation.  Exchange (Cost +) transactions in a Quotation generate two AviBuy invoices, both of which shall be paid by you, The Buyer. The first invoice is for the supply by us of an exchanged component in serviceable condition. The second invoice is for AviBuy’s charges for bringing the returned core component Goods to an airworthy state and in at least the same condition as the component we supply in exchange to you, including mandatory modification, reworks, replacement parts and freight. All such Charges are agreed by you and to be paid by you.

  1. Quality

AviBuy warrants that any serviceable Product(s) will conform in all material respects to the specification for them set out or described in the Quotation for the warranty period specified therein (“Warranty Period”) and shall be free from material defects in materials and workmanship. All other warranties and implied terms relating to quality are hereby excluded insofar as permitted by law. The Warranty Period of any part offered for sale by AviBuy is detailed in the Quotation. The Warranty Period will commence on the day of despatch of the Products Purchased or Exchanged. For clarity, the Warranty Period is described in calendar days and not working days.

Product supplied fully serviceable. Should additional testing be required prior to the fitment then OEM test procedures must be adhered to in order to prevent damage. The use of unauthorised procedures and/or equipment can damage the part and lead to subsequent rejected warranty claims.

AviBuy shall have the choice to either repair or replace non-conforming Products.  In the case of repairing any defective Products, such Products will first be evaluated by AviBuy and if AviBuy concludes – acting reasonably – that such Products are not in accordance with the specification in the applicable Quotation or are otherwise defective and they were returned within their particular Warranty Period and criteria, such Products will be then be repaired free of charge on an urgent basis. If, however, such Products were returned outside their particular Warranty Period or criteria, then AviBuy shall Charge for the cost of repair of the Products to serviceability and the Client agrees to pay those Charges. In the event that, as an alternative, you elect to have a replacement Product rather than a repair, such a replacement will subsequently be treated as a new Order and also, as a separate Contract and will require a new Quotation to be supplied and agreed upon.

Should a replacement Quotation be agreed and accepted and a fresh Order or Contract put in place, then credit against the original invoice in respect of the amount paid for the non-conforming Product will be provided. The amount of credit supplied will be determined once the non-conforming Product has undergone AviBuy’s warranty evaluation. If the Product warranty claim were to be accepted by AviBuy, then credit will be issued to the Client that will be proportionate to the length of Warranty Period remaining on the original Quotation.  Should AviBuy not accept the warranty claim, then the cost of repairing the non-conforming Product will be deducted from the original Invoice and credit given for the balance of the Warranty Period in the original Quotation. In the case that the repair exceeds the original Quotation sale price, an additional Invoice for the balance will be issued.

Subject to AviBuy’s right to adjudicate any warranty claim, if you, The Buyer, gives notice in writing within 15 days of discovery to AviBuy by completing the relevant Returned Material Authorisation (RMA) form during the Warranty Period and if you notify AviBuy that some or all of the Products do not comply with the warranty set out above, AviBuy shall be given a reasonable opportunity to examine such Products and you shall (if asked to do so by AviBuy) return such Products to our place of business, whereupon AviBuy shall, at our discretion, repair or replace the defective Products, or provide credit in respect of the amount paid for the Products, the amount of which will be proportionate to the length of Warranty Period remaining. Where (in the case of new Products) the manufacturer provides a warranty that exceeds AviBuy’s Warranty Period, then AviBuy will extend its Warranty Period to the day before the expiry of such manufacturer’s warranty claim period.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR SOLE RIGHT OR REMEDY AND OUR EXCLUSIVE AND ONLY LIABILITY IN RESPECT OF ANY DEFECT IN DESIGN, MATERIAL OR WORKMANSHIP IN RELATION TO THE PRODUCTS IS LIMITED TO, AT AVIBUY’S DISCRETION, THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE PRODUCT, OR THE PROVISION OF CREDIT IN RESPECT OF THE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE PRODUCTS IN QUESTION IN THE CONTRACT, THE AMOUNT OF WHICH WILL BE PROPORTIONATE TO THE LENGTH OF WARRANTY PERIOD REMAINING.

We shall, at our discretion, bear reasonable delivery costs that may have been incurred by you in returning the defective or damaged Product to us on accepted warranty claims (up to a maximum of $50.00).

AviBuy shall not be liable for the Products’ failure to conform with the warranty set out above in any of the following events: you, The Buyer, make any further use of such Products after such non-conformity is discovered; the non-conformity arises because you, The Buyer, fail to follow our (or the Product manufacturer’s) oral or written instructions as to the storage, commissioning, installation, use and/or maintenance of the Products or (if there are none) good trade practice regarding the same; the nonconformity arises as a result of us, AviBuy, following any drawing, design, instruction or specification supplied by you; you alter or attempt to repair such Products without our prior written consent including – but not limited to – breaking warranty void seals, disturbing locking wire or disassembling the goods; the non-conformity arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, accident, negligence by you or by any third party, or abnormal storage or working conditions; the Products differ from their description as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirement; if the Product is damaged as the result of another component in the aircraft being faulty; if the identification mark, name or serial number has been removed from the Product.

Warranty claims will be adjudicated by AviBuy using investigation reports, where necessary, from the Product’s manufacturer or repairer.  Any decision made by AviBuy Limited in respect of any warranty claim is final.

The terms implied by clauses 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Contract.

No warranty is given or implied by AviBuy that any Products will be suitable for any particular purpose or for use under any specific conditions, notwithstanding that such purpose or conditions may be known or made known to AviBuy.  It is your responsibility to ensure that the goods are suitable for the particular purpose you wish to use them for, or, for use under any specific conditions.  Additionally, the Seller shall not be liable for any failure of the Products to operate in such use or environment.

  1. Charges, Payments and Credit Facility

The price of the Products and our delivery Charges will be in accordance with the Contract, except in cases of obvious error or omission (“Price”). The Charges and all other sums owed shall become due and payable on the date of the Invoice.

If you The Buyer fail to pay the Charges and all other sums owed within 30 days of receiving the Invoice, AviBuy shall be entitled to, without prejudice to any other right or remedy (i) withhold delivery of the Products until such a time as all outstanding sums are paid; and/or (ii) charge you interest on the amount outstanding on a daily basis at the rate of 8% per annum above the base rate of the Bank of England in force at the time, such interest to be calculated from the due date for payment thereof to the date of actual payment.  Interest shall compound monthly into the outstanding principal sum.

Payment of the Charges shall be in full and without discount, deduction, set-off or counterclaim of any kind. All Charges hereunder are exclusive of any applicable value added taxes and any other applicable taxes or charges of any nature whatsoever; these will be added onto the invoice and shall be payable by you in accordance with the law applicable at the time.

If the Price of the Products you have ordered is less than $30.00 an administrative charge of $30.00 will be payable in addition to the Price and you The Buyer agree to pay it.  All Charges associated with wire transactions should be prepaid by you.  In the event that such wire transaction charges are not prepaid, $40.00 will be charged to you for each transaction in addition to the Price; you The Buyer agree to pay this.

Unless otherwise expressly set out to the contrary in the Contract, the cost of delivery of the Products and any other reasonable expenses reasonably incurred by AviBuy in the performance of its obligations herein, shall be borne and paid by the Client / The Buyer.

In the event that delivery of the Product is to an address outside the United Kingdom, AviBuy shall not be responsible for any additional taxes and charges due, including but not limited to importation taxes, sales taxes and any other taxes and charges that may be levied at the delivery destination.  All such taxes and other imposed costs shall be paid by the Client as Charges and AviBuy will not be responsible for any delay in delivery due to the non-payment thereof.

We may use third party payment handlers to process your payment and you The Buyer agree that you have given AviBuy permission to do so at its own discretion.

AviBuy Limited may provide a credit facility to you at its sole discretion.

In the event that we provide a credit facility to you, you The Buyer agree to pay all Invoices issued by us within 28 days of the date specified upon the relevant Invoice.  You shall comply with this provision at all times unless otherwise agreed with us in advance and in writing. Unpaid Invoices for Products that are subject to warranty claims by you are still due for payment and are to be paid on time and within the credit terms offered to you by AviBuy Limited.

In the event that you do not make payment in accordance with the terms of an Invoice and this clause, AviBuy reserves the right to withdraw the credit facility forthwith and charge interest on outstanding invoices at a rate of 8% per annum above the base rate of the Bank of England in force at the time, such interest to be calculated from the due date for payment thereof to the date of actual payment.  Interest shall compound monthly into the outstanding principal sum.

Contracts that involve special orders placed with AviBuy’s suppliers on your behalf where Avibuy is acting as your agent, shall only be terminated if AviBuy can, in turn, cancel the order with that supplier. In such cases, you will be liable to reimburse AviBuy for all expenses incurred in the placing and cancellation of the order, plus a 15% cancellation fee.  In the event that such a supplier contract is not terminable or is only terminable upon proper payment of certain fees, then AviBuy should be indemnified by the Client against all costs, claim, demands, expenses, payments and proceedings arising from such a cancellation or termination by AviBuy.

  1. Deliveries

AviBuy will outline the delivery details that will apply in the relevant and accepted Order. EXW Incoterms 2010 shall apply unless otherwise stated in the Quotation.  Time of delivery is given as accurately as possible, but time shall not be of the essence in relation to delivery dates and time is not the subject of any condition, warranty or representation.  Occasionally, our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control (see below clause 15).

Delivery of an Order shall be completed when your nominated carrier is ready to load the Products onto his mode of transportation at our premises. The Products will be transported at your risk and are your responsibility and liability from that moment in time, as per EXW Incoterms 2010.  AviBuy Limited shall not be liable for any damage, loss or destruction of the Products that may occur after the delivery has been completed.

You shall notify us of anything that is missing from the delivery within 5 (five) working days of receipt of the Products.  Failure to do so is understood to be an acceptance that the delivery was complete and in full.

In the event that you The Buyer request that the Products be dispatched outside normal office hours (08:30-17:30), a service Charge of $150.00 per shipment will be payable in addition to the Price.  You agree to pay this.

In the event that the Products require delivery in packing crates, you will be charged for the cost of the crates in addition to the Price, which you agree to pay. You will then be credited the cost of the crates if you return them to us in good condition at your own expense within 30 days of delivery of the Products as described above.

  1. Title and Risk

Any risk regarding the Products shall pass to you on completion of delivery. The title to the Products shall not pass to you until a) we receive payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for the Products and any other Products that AviBuy have supplied to you in respect of which payment has become due, in which case title to the Products shall pass at the time of payment of all such sums; or b) you resell the Products, in which case title to the Products shall pass to you at the time specified below.

Until the title to the Products has passed to you, you shall: store the Products separately from all other goods held by you so that they remain readily identifiable as AviBuy’s property; not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Products; maintain the Products in satisfactory condition and keep them insured against all risks for their full price paid to AviBuy Limited from the date of delivery; notify AviBuy immediately if you become subject to any of the events listed in clause 11 below; and give us such information relating to the Products as we may require from time to time.

Subject to the clause below, you may resell or use the Products in the ordinary course of business (but not otherwise) before AviBuy receives payment for the Products. However, if you resell the Products before that time, you do so as the principal seller and not as our agent.  The Title to the Products shall pass from AviBuy to you immediately, at the time of resale.

If you become subject to any of the events listed in clause 10 before the title to the Products passes to you and, then, without limiting any other right or remedy AviBuy may have, Your right to resell the Products or use them in the ordinary course of your business ceases immediately.  We may – at any time – require you to return all the Products in your possession (which have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into another product) and if you fail to do so promptly, we may enter any premises belonging to you or any third party where the Products are stored in order to recover them.

  1. Cancellation and Returns

If you wish to cancel a Contract before any Products in that Contract are dispatched, there will be no charge except for any applicable transaction and non-refundable banking fees that may have occurred. If the cancellation is made within 15 days of the Products being despatched there will be restocking charges.

AviBuy will approve a cancellation at its sole discretion and reserves the right to seek reimbursement of any expenses incurred in respect of the Contract and moreover, charge a cancellation fee of 15% of the Price plus any applicable charges.

If you wish to return a Product, you must complete a Returned Material Authorisation Form and send it to us. If the part was ordered and despatched correctly from stock and subsequently returned unused within 15 days of its despatch to/collection by you, then full credit will be issued minus shipping charges.  Full credit less 15% handling and shipping (if applicable) will be issued for parts received unused and still in their original wrapping if returned after 15 days but less than 30 days after delivery.  No credit will be issued for items returned unused after 31 days; we will advise you in respect of your return of the Product including the return delivery or collection of the Product.

AviBuy may, at its sole discretion, offer credit to you for the Price of the Product if you wish to return it, subject to the fact that the Product is returned in the condition in which it was provided to you. AviBuy Limited reserves the right to charge a restocking fee for Products that are returned for credit.

In the event that the Product is not returned in the condition in which it was provided to you, AviBuy will offer credit for a proportion of the Price of the Product.  This will be determined at our sole discretion and may include additional charges. 

You shall bear all costs associated with the return and/or collection of the Product.

  1. Orders for Delivery outside the United Kingdom

If you place an Order from a location outside the United Kingdom which is to be delivered outside the United Kingdom, you shall be liable for complying with all applicable local laws and shall indemnify AviBuy from and against all such costs, claims, damages, expenses and proceedings (including costs) incurred by or sustained against AviBuy in relation to such matters.  EXW Incoterms shall apply unless agreed otherwise.

You acknowledge and agree that due to the various systems of delivery services outside the United Kingdom and as under EXW Incoterms 2010, you are responsible for delivery and risk after collection.  Only in some cases will AviBuy be able to confirm that your Order has been delivered to the designated country of the address set out in the Quotation.  AviBuy shall have no control whatsoever in respect of your collection/delivery services and therefore, AviBuy do not represent or warrant that your Order shall be collected/delivered within a particular timescale, in the form in which it was originally packaged and delivered by AviBuy or at all.

If you order Products for delivery outside the United Kingdom, you may be subject to import duties and taxes after collection, which are levied upon the delivery of such Products to the specified address. As stated, you shall be solely responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes and shall indemnify AviBuy from and against all such matters (including costs incurred) incurred by or sustained against AviBuy in executing the Contract.  We have no control whatsoever in respect of your collection under EXW Incoterms 2010, such additional import duties, taxes and charges and we cannot advise you as to what these may be.  Consequently, we recommend that you contact your local customs office for further information prior to placing any Order with AviBuy Limited.

For all deliveries of Products or Exchange items to locations outside the United Kingdom, you shall be the named importer of the Products and it shall be your sole responsibility to comply with all applicable local laws and regulations of the country to which the Products are delivered.  In no way shall we be liable to you for any breach by you of any such laws arising from or in connection with the purchase or your use of the Products and/or AviBuy Limited’s delivery of the Products to you.

If any of these Terms is determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions, all of which shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.

The Contract as described in the second paragraph of clause 2 of these Terms shall constitute the whole contract between us and shall supersede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between you and us, whether oral or in writing.

You acknowledge that in entering into the Contract, you have not relied on any representations, undertaking or promise given by or implied from anything said or written, including but not limited to negotiations between you and us, except as expressly set out in the Contract.

Nothing in the Contract shall give – directly or indirectly – a third party any enforceable benefit or any right of action against AviBuy under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 and such third parties shall not be entitled to enforce any term of these Terms against AviBuy.

The Contract is governed by and construed in accordance with English law.  The Courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any disputes arising out of or in connection with this Contract.
