Prices quoted are based on Peak’s estimated costs of supply at the time of quotation and may be altered without notice to the Customer if there is any increase in Peak’s costs between the date of quotation and the date of delivery. Unless Peak agrees otherwise in writing, all goods will be charged at the prices prevailing at the date of delivery plus any applicable goods and services tax (GST) which must be paid to Peak by the Customer when payment for the Goods is due.

Payment must be made in cash without deduction immediately on delivery of the goods, or, if the Customer has established a standard credit account with Peak, within 21 days after the end of the month in which the goods are delivered. Peak reserves the right to vary the terms of payment and to require payment in cash in full prior to delivery if, at any time, the creditworthiness of the Customer is, in Peak’s opinion, unsatisfactory. Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies of Peak, if any payment is not made on the due date, the Customer will be in default and Peak reserves the right to require the Customer to pay to Peak, on-demand, by way of liquidated damages, interest at the rate fixed under section 2(1) of the Penalty Interest Rates Act 1983 (Vic) from time to time on the amount outstanding, calculated daily and capitalised monthly, from the due date for payment until payment is made in full, and all expenses including Legal Costs incurred in the recovery of the debt.
6. DESCRIPTION AND SALE BY SAMPLE
Any description of the Goods is given by way of identification only and the use of that description does not constitute a sale by description. No sale made under this Agreement constitutes a sale by sample.
7. IMPLIED TERMS AND LIABILITY
All conditions, guarantees and warranties expressed or implied by statute, the common law, equity, trade, custom, usage or otherwise are expressly excluded to the maximum extent permitted by law. So far as the law permits, the liability of Peak for a breach of a condition or warranty that cannot be excluded is limited, at Peak’s option, to:
(a) the replacement of the goods;
(b) the supply of equivalent goods; or
The Customer agrees to release, hold harmless and indemnify Peak to the maximum extent permitted by law from and against any liability whatsoever and howsoever arising (including from negligence or willful misconduct on the part of Peak or others) in connection with the supply of goods by Peak. The Customer acknowledges that neither Peak nor any person purporting to act on its behalf has made any representation or given any promise or undertaking that is not expressly set out in writing, whether as to the fitness of the goods for any particular purpose or any other matter. Peak acknowledges that under applicable State, Territory and Commonwealth law(s) (including, without limitation, the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA)), certain statutory guarantees and warranties may be implied into this agreement and cannot be excluded by law (Non-Excluded Guarantees). If this agreement is a consumer contract for the purposes of the CCA then, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this agreement: you are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage; and you are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. Peak acknowledges that nothing in this agreement purports to modify or exclude the Non-Excluded Guarantees. The warranties given in this Agreement are given by Peak Lubricants Pty Ltd (ABN 74 887 510 101), of the above address and telephone number. So far as the law permits, and subject to the CCA where the agreement constitutes a consumer agreement, Peak is not liable in any way for any indirect or consequential loss or loss of profit including any loss by reason of delay, defect or negligence or any act or matter or thing done, permitted or omitted by Peak.
The goods will be delivered at the Customer’s premises within the Melbourne metropolitan area at Peak’s cost and expense, and otherwise as agreed between Peak and the Customer. Goods dispatched by Peak will be at the Customer’s risk and Peak is under no obligation to insure the goods while in transit. Any time quoted for delivery is an estimate only. The Customer is not relieved of any obligation to accept or pay for goods because of any delay in delivery. Peak is not liable for any failure to deliver or delay in delivery for any reason including force majeure. If Peak determines that it is or may be unable to deliver within a reasonable time or at all Peak may cancel the relevant Contract.
If a Contract is so cancelled, the Customer will have no claim against Peak for any damage, loss, cost or expense. Peak reserves the right to deliver by instalments and each instalment will be taken to be sold under a separate contract. Failure of Peak to deliver any instalment will not entitle the Customer to cancel the balance of the order. If the Customer defaults in payment for any instalment, Peak may elect to treat the default as a breach of contract relating to each other instalment. The Customer must notify Peak immediately of any defect in the goods of which it becomes aware after delivery and will take all reasonable steps to mitigate loss (if any) arising as a consequence of the defect.
Any claim by the Customer for short or wrongful delivery of the goods must be notified to Peak in writing within 7 days after delivery of the goods. Any such claim that the Customer does not notify within that time (time being of the essence) will be taken to have been absolutely waived.
