Right to Refuse: GroWrk reserves the right to refuse service to any customer or potential customer.

Delivery: Delivery shall take place on despatch of the Products to the Customer from GroWrk’s or GroWrk partner's premises for delivery to the Customer’s premises set out in these Conditions, unless otherwise agreed in writing by GroWrk. The Products may be delivered by GroWrk in advance of the quoted delivery date. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that if it requests that the GroWrk change the delivery date, delivery address or delivery time previously agreed between the Customer and the Supplier in respect of any Product, this may affect the overall delivery time for all Products specified in the Customer’s order. GroWrk hereby agrees to inform the Customer in the event that the overall delivery time for the Products is so affected. Although dates for delivery are given in good faith, these are indicative only and time of delivery shall not be of the essence. GroWrk shall use reasonable efforts to deliver orders as soon as reasonably practicable and to inform the Customer if there may be any delays in delivery of the Products. If the Supplier is unable to deliver any Product by the agreed delivery date the Supplier shall not be liable to the Customer for any delay caused as a result of the failure to deliver. If GroWrk fails to deliver the Products within 10 working days of the agreed delivery date, the Customer shall have the right to receive a refund of monies paid to the GroWrk only in respect of those Products which the Supplier has failed to deliver within 10 working days of the agreed delivery date. Products subject to lease: This condition applies only to the lease of the Products by GroWrk to the Customer. It shall not apply to the sale of the Products and Services by GroWrk to the Customer. All Products leased to the Customer or at the Customer’s direction shall remain the sole and absolute property of the GroWrk. The Products shall be leased to the Customer by GroWrk for such term as agreed between the parties in writing. The Customer may request a renewal of the lease upon notifying the GroWrk at least 30 days prior to the start date of the proposed renewal date unless the GroWrk consents to a shorter notice period. If the Customer does not wish to renew the lease, GroWrk will contact the Customer in writing 30 days prior to the end of the current lease term to arrange collection of the Products. If the GroWrk is unable to confirm collection for any Product within 7 days prior to the end of the term of the lease, GroWrk shall have the right to charge the Customer an amount equal to one month’s rent for such Product as specified in the order. If the collection address is different from the delivery address specified by the Customer in the order, the GroWrk reserves the right to charge the Customer for any additional costs associated with the collection of the Products from the collection address. The Customer agrees that the Customer or its representative shall be present at the time of any collection of the Products in order to sign the GroWrk’s collection form and confirm that the Products being collected are in the same condition as they were when initially supplied by the GroWrk to the Customer subject to reasonable wear and tear. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that GroWrk will only lease Products to the Customer for the duration of the warranty period given by the manufacturer of such Products, such warranty period to be specified by the GroWrkr to the Seller at the time of the order. At the end of the manufacturer’s warranty period, GroWrk will arrange for the recovery of the Products from the Customer unless otherwise agreed in writing by GroWrk. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that GroWrk shall check the Products for any damage at the time of collection of such Products. The Customer further acknowledges and agrees that GroWrk shall have the right to charge the Customer for costs associated with the repair of any damage that is reasonably considered by the GroWrk to be beyond reasonable wear and tear or, where such damage is not capable of being repaired or where the cost of doing so exceeds the cost of replacing the Product, the Customer agrees that GroWrk has the right to charge the Customer for the cost of replacing the Product. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is the responsibility of the Customer to inform GroWrk immediately of any damage to Products which are leased to it. If the Customer discovers any damage to a Product, it will cease to use such Product immediately. Having been informed by the Customer of any damage to a Product, GroWrk will assess whether it believes there is a risk that, as a result of such damage, the Product is no longer fit for purpose. If GroWrk so believes, the Customer will (or will procure that the relevant user of the Product will) ensure that it does not use the Product until repaired or replaced by the GroWrk. Repair and Replacement Service: This condition shall apply to the lease of the Products by GroWrk to the Customer. It shall not apply to the sale of the Products by the GroWrk to the Customer unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties and subject to payment by the Customer to the GroWrk of any additional amount which GroWrk may specify. GroWrk shall provide to the Customer the Repair and Replacement Service. For the purposes of this condition, Repair and Replacement Service means: The Customer may make a written report to GroWrk of any fault with the Products. Within 3 working days of its receipt of such report and provided GroWrk is given access to the relevant address within standard business hours, the GroWrk or its representative shall attend the address where the Products are held in order to inspect the Products. Having inspected the Products, the GroWrk shall determine the reason for the fault. GroWrk shall repair or replace the Products at GroWrk’s cost. This condition shall not apply where the GroWrk determines (at its sole discretion) that the reason for the fault is failure by any user of the Product to act in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions or where the fault is due to accidental or deliberate damage by any person. Within 3 working days of receipt of the reported issue, GroWrk shall repair the Products at the location where such Products are held if GroWrk reasonably deems such on-site repair to be possible and shall provide the Customer with a report of any such on-site repair. Otherwise, GroWrk shall collect the Products and shall repair them offsite and will re-deliver such Products to the address from which they were collected within 3 business days of such collection. As an alternative to repair, GroWrk may replace the Products with products which are determined by GroWrk (at its sole discretion) to be the same as or similar to the Products originally supplied by it to the Customer. GroWrk's right to replace the Products apply where GroWrk is unable to repair the Products or where the cost to GroWrk of replacing the Products is less than the cost to of repairing the Products. Where the Products are held at a different address to the delivery address specified by the Customer in the order, GroWrk reserves the right to charge the Customer for any additional costs associated with the inspection of the Products at the address; the collection of Products from the address; and the delivery of replacement Products or repaired Products to the address. Growrk shall notify the Customer of such fact in writing and the Customer shall be responsible for the cost to the Supplier of attending the address where the Products are located for the purpose of its inspection. Having received a notification under this condition, if the Customer wishes GroWrk to repair or replace the Products, the Customer shall notify GroWrk to carry out such repair or replacement but at the Customer’s cost. The Repair and Replacement Service shall not be available to the Customer for any period beyond the duration of the warranty period given by the manufacturer of the Products, as specified by the Supplier to the Customer at the time of its order. A customer will not be denied service for the following: 1) Race, 2) Religion, 3) Gender/gender identity, 4) Age, 5) Disability, 6) Nationality, or 7) Sexual orientation. Before GroWrk refuses service, the GroWrk Remote Customer Experience team will intervene and attempt to resolve the situation. If refusal of service is pertaining to a new customer, and all equipment is in like-new condition in GroWrk’s possession, any pre-paid monetary transactions will be canceled and issued a refund within 48 hours. Where the GroWrk has leased the Products to the Customer, GroWrk agrees to recover and recycle at the GroWrk’s own cost Products supplied by it to the Customer where the Customer no longer requires such Products. The Customer shall ensure that all Products are emptied of personal belongings before they are collected and GroWrk shall not be liable for any loss or damage in respect any personal belongings as a result of the Customer’s failure to do so. All Products supplied to the Customer or at the Customer’s direction shall remain the sole and absolute property of the GroWrk, notwithstanding delivery, installation and assembly, until: payment in full for all the Products has been received in cash or cleared funds by GroWrk; and all accounts due from the Customer to GroWrk have been paid in full, and until such time the Customer shall hold the Products to the order of GroWrk. Until such time as GroWrk has been paid in full, the Customer shall ensure that all Products are stored separately and in such a way as to be readily identifiable as the property of the Supplier and easily removable by the Supplier. The Customer shall ensure that the Products are properly maintained in the condition in which they were delivered and shall make good any damage or deterioration. In the event of non-payment (in whole or in part) by the Customer by the due date GroWrk shall be entitled in addition to all other rights during normal business hours to enter upon any land or premises where the Products may for the time being be and recover possession of them. GroWrk may take such measures as may be reasonably necessary to enter such land or premises and remove the Products. Even if the property in the Products may not have passed to the Customer, GroWrk may maintain an action for the price of the Products once payment has become due to GroWrk, provided that property shall pass to the Customer once full payment has been made to GroWrk.
