Local freight charges – Abloc will bear the local freight charges per bicycle or frameset to be shipped by Abloc to the Customer.
Airfreight – Should Abloc not have a Product in stock locally, the Customer will be requested to indicate whether it wants the Product sourced from abroad. If so, the Customer will place an order and bear the airfreight costs incurred in the process if the price of the bicycle (including VAT) is less than R100 000. Abloc will bear all international freight charges on a bicycle with a selling price of R100 000 or more (including VAT).
Local shipping – Estimated transit period of 4 – 5 business days to the local delivery address after the order has been confirmed by Abloc.
International shipping – Estimated transit period of 7 – 10 business days to the local delivery address after the order has been confirmed by Abloc.
Assembly – Bicycles are normally imported in dis-assembled format. Bicycles will be assembled locally by a trained technician. They will then be partially dis-assembled and re-boxed for delivery to the Customer, unless otherwise instructed.
Packing, delivery and risk in transit – Abloc will pack the Products for local transportation and delivery to the Customer and will arrange for freight and insurance to such destination. The risk in the Products during transfer shall be Abloc’s until arrival at the destination.
Transport damage and incorrect deliveries – Transport damage and incorrect deliveries must be reported to Abloc in writing within 48 hours of delivery, otherwise Abloc will accept no liability (also see the Warranty Regulations in this regard).
Ability and speed of delivery – Abloc shall use its best endeavours to supply the Products ordered as soon as possible after confirmation of the order, in so far as it is not prevented or hindered by limitations of availability, production hold-ups, strikes and the like. Shipping dates and estimates of time of arrival will be the best estimates available or known to Abloc but shall not be of the essence to the shipment. Should the Customer require express delivery, express delivery costs (locally and internationally) will be borne by the Customer.
