Metric Fencing Terms & Conditions

Custom and production orders
Custom and production orders will vary in their production lead times. When speaking to Metric Fencing and making the order, estimated production times may be given. Large and/or complex orders may also attract a longer lead time. Whilst Metric Fencing makes every effort to ensure production orders are available for despatch on time, there are many factors beyond our control, and for this reason, we cannot accept any responsibility for late orders.

Customer pickup
Pick up hours are Monday – Friday, 7 am – 4.30 pm
Loads are subject to the Metric Fencing Transport Safety Guidelines. You may require a truck, ute or suitable trailer for pickup depending on your order. Delivery of items longer than 8 metres and/or wider than 2.4 metres require delivery using an oversize truck.

Delivery and demurrage
When goods are delivered to a particular site, the goods will be entirely at the customer’s risk and are the customers responsibility. We always recommend the customer be present on site for the delivery of the order. If the delivery site is unattended, goods will be unloaded on the site, or as close to the site as safe and practicable. The delivery docket/manifest signed by the cartage contractor or driver of Metric Fencing that the goods were delivered accordingly shall be conclusive evidence of the delivery of goods. If requested to enter a property, Metric Fencing accept no responsibility for any damage caused by Metric Fencing or its employees or contractors to the property and goods lying on that property. If the delivery vehicle becomes bogged at the delivery site, all charges incurred in freeing the vehicle will be at the customers expense.

Re-delivery
Where delivery is attempted but not completed for any reason, a re-delivery charge will apply that is equal to or greater than the original delivery charge.

Unloading
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the site is accessible and safe. Unloading at the site is the responsibility of the customer, and generally, a forklift is required. Metric Fencing will not be responsible for any damages resulting from unloading of goods by the customer or anyone on its behalf or by Metric Fencing’s employees or agents. If the time for unloading exceeds 15 minutes, the customer may be charged an additional unloading fee of $100 per hour or part thereof.

Re-stocking fee
Orders may only be changed or altered once they have been processed and packed at management’s discretion, only if they have not yet left Metric Fencing premises. A restocking fee of 15% of the order total or $50 (whichever is greater) applies for any of these changes. Please be aware that once orders have left our warehouse or premises, they cannot be changed or restocked.
