The Customer acknowledges that, despite any such event, change, or step the Customer remains liable to pay the amounts billed for all Parts and Services supplied.

9.1 TADANO reserves the right to deliver Parts and complete Services in instalments and all such instalments, where separately invoiced, shall be paid for without regard to subsequent instalments.

Delivery duties are to be treated as a condition of the sale.

9.3 Subject to clause 9.2, the delivery date and service completion date shall not be varied once agreed, without TADANO’s and the Customer’s mutual consent. Should TADANO agree to postpone delivery or delay the completion of Services at the Customer’s request, the Parts in question shall be stored at the Customer’s risk and TADANO reserves the right to impose a weekly storage charge (in addition to any Storage Fee otherwise payable by the Customer).
