TERMS AND CONDITIONS
PILA group Pty Ltd (PILA) is committed to providing a high level of service and we check orders on receipt and will advise the customer of any error we see when comparing an order to our current product information and pricing. However, the customer is always responsible for choosing the correct product and checking our Order Confirmation and Tax Invoice before confirming their order as final.
This checking process does not apply to orders PILA receives from third party resellers and customers must make their own checks with any third party selling PILA products.
All information and pricing provided on this website is subject to an Omissions and Error Disclaimer.
PILA does not issue refunds for change of mind or incorrect product choice and PILA does not accept the return or exchange of goods once goods have been shipped or if an order, shipped or not shipped, is customised in any way (i.e. custom size or powdercoat colour).
A PILA Tax Invoice will have available payment methods displayed. Full payment is required on order unless you have a formal trade account in place or you are a Government Department. If you are an account holder or a Government Department, your order will be deemed accepted on receipt and will go into production immediately. All other orders will go into production once payment is received and any lead time specified will commence from the date payment is received.
For account holders and Government Departments, payment is to be made by the due date on each invoice and late payments may attract interest at the rate of 7% p/a or the highest rate permitted by law, whichever is greater. If required, debt collection will be activated for late payments and the client is liable for all costs incurred by PILA due to debt collection procedures.
Each Tax Invoice issued by PILA shall be deemed to be correct and accepted as rendered unless PILA has received written notice to the contrary within three (3) business days from the date of issue, after which time PILA will not accept a dispute against a Tax Invoice and all monies owed to PILA as per the Tax Invoice will be due by the due date.

The customer shall provide all necessary insurance for goods in transport and in their own possession for no less than any amounts owed to PILA with any loss first payable to PILA for any invoiced amounts not yet paid.
