2.1 We will endeavour to comply with agreed delivery times and dates, but such dates are estimates and not guaranteed, and shall not be deemed a term and condition of the contract of sale.
2.2 We shall not accept liability for the failure to meet such dates, and such failure shall not entitle you to repudiate or cancel the contract, unless we cannot deliver within 48 hours. Delivery shall be deemed to take place on the physical delivery of the goods by, or on behalf of us, to the customer’s point of delivery.
