All products shall be selected by the Buyer at their own discretion after considering all factors.
9. INSTALLATION OF GOODS
Stone Depot recommends that the Goods are installed by experienced and licensed stone fixers. Inexperience with these materials may damage the Goods. Stone Depot will not be liable for any damage or breakage whatsoever occurring after the delivery or any loss incurred by the Buyer or Buyer’s fixers because of such damage or breakage. Goods must be laid in compliance with Australian practices which include tile blending from different batches. Visit www.australiantilecouncil.com.au to familiarise yourself with tiling practices and codes. Stone Depot accepts no responsibility for cleaning or sealing of the Goods. Stone Depot accepts no liability for: (a) the removal or for any loss incurred by the Buyer associated with replacing the imperfect goods; and (b) any consequential loss, damage, or expense that arises because of any defects in respect of the Goods that Stone Depot agrees to replace; or (c) any Goods that have been laid.
The Buyer acknowledges that variation in colour and texture in natural stone products is normal and properties of the products. It may vary from the sample and picture supplied. As it is a natural stone, no two pieces will be identical by means of characteristics and appearances. Stone tiles are often packed into crates very tightly, are wet at the point of production and may have some residue from the various finishing processes employed. Because of this, it is recommended that stone tiles are washed and are allowed to dry completely before every stage of the installation process. They will often lighten in colour as they dry. No claims will be accepted and processed for such natural differences. Stone Depot recommends the Buyer inspects the Goods prior to dispatch from Stone Depot’s warehouse. To ensure even blending of colours, the material should be laid from several crates at a time. All Goods must be inspected before installation. Once Goods have been installed, they are deemed accepted. No warranties and claims can be made for any fault including colour variations, surface defects, sizing variations, quantities, or any other defect.
Stone Depot recommends Buyers seal all the natural stone products and always check the effectiveness of the sealer. Natural stone may react to chemical compounds, so please follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and ensure to carry out testing before full application. Stone Depot doesn’t recommend the use of acid on any natural stone product. Our natural stone products are not calibrated; therefore, dimensions may vary. However, size or thickness variation in the product supplied by Stone Depot must comply with the Australian Standards. The buyer shall ensure that adequate stock is purchased to complete a job. If the Buyer orders an insufficient number of Goods, then Stone Depot takes no responsibility for any variation of colour in further batches supplied to the Buyer or the inability to supply the Goods at all. Consequently, up to 6% breakage, chipping, and hair line cracks are allowed during transportation due to the nature of natural stones.
10. PRODUCT INSPECTION
The Buyer or its designated agent at Stone Depot’s premises can only carry out any inspection or test agreed upon before the acceptance of the Goods by the Buyer, must unless otherwise agreed. The Buyer must bear the cost of any specialized inspection or tests required. In the case of any such inspection, Stone Depot accepts no responsibility for any defect(s) identified in the Goods once the Goods in question have left the Stone Depot Premises.
11. DELIVERY TIMELINE
Stone Depot endeavours to complete and deliver each order by the expected delivery date but will not be responsible for any loss or damage arising from any delay or failure to deliver the Goods for any reason whatsoever. Time is not of the essence concerning the delivery as the specified delivery dates are an estimate only. The Buyer accepts that all Goods are subject to availability and that there may be delays from time to time. Wherever practicable, Stone Depot will seek to act in good faith and notify the Buyer of any such delays on time. Stone Depot cannot be held responsible for any delays in the delivery timeline because of unforeseen issues or 3rd party’s fault which are beyond the control of Stone Depot such as pandemics, shipping port congestions, shipping issues, container shortages, industrial actions, and or trade issues between the countries.
The Buyer must pay for and accept the ordered Goods regardless of delayed delivery. If Stone Depot determines that, it is or may be unable to deliver within a reasonable time or at all, Stone Depot may cancel the Sales Order and in the event of such cancellation, the Buyer shall not have any claim against Stone Depot for any damage, loss, cost, or expense whatsoever. Stone Depot will not be liable for any costs incurred concerning any such delay or cancellation. Under no circumstances shall the Buyer have any claim of any nature whatsoever arising from late delivery.
12. COMPLETION OF ORDER AND STORAGE
The Buyer’s obligation to pay for the Goods is not conditional on the Buyer’s willingness and/or readiness to take delivery of the Goods. If the Goods are manufactured, completed and ready for collection/delivery at Stone Depot’s warehouse and the Buyer is not ready to take delivery of the Goods due to delay in the project or any other reason, then the Buyer is liable to pay the full amount of the Goods as soon as Stone Depot notifies the Buyer that order is ready for delivery/collection of the Goods as the deposit amount will not be sufficient to hold the stock. Stone Depot may agree to store the Goods on the Buyer’s behalf for a limited period if storage space is available. Such Goods will be held at the Buyer’s risk and Stone Depot accepts no liability for any loss or damage at a charge of $7/pallet/week plus transportation cost (if any) to move the stock to another storage facility.
13. PARTIAL DELIVERIES
Stone Depot may deliver the Goods in instalments. Failure of Stone Depot to deliver any instalment shall not entitle the Buyer to cancel the balance of the Sales Order. If the Buyer makes default in respect of any instalment, Stone Depot may elect to treat the default as a breach of contract relating to each other instalment.
14. CHANGE IN SPECIFICATIONS
Before the commencement of manufacture of the Goods, the Buyer may, by notice in writing, request Stone Depot to vary the colour or specifications of the Goods, which Stone Depot may or may not grant in its unfettered discretion. If Stone Depot denies any such request, then the Buyer must accept and pay for the Goods as specified in the relevant Sales Order. Stone Depot shall not vary the colour or specifications of the Goods unless and until requested to do so in writing by the Buyer. If any such request causes a change in the cost or time required for the manufacturer and/or supply of the Goods, then an equitable adjustment shall be made to the Price and/or the terms of the Sales Order. The Buyer is not entitled to request Stone Depot to vary the colour or specifications of the Goods after the commencement of manufacture of the Goods.

Upon receiving the video/photo evidence, Stone Depot shall direct the Buyer on further action. In case of non-compliance with the above-mentioned clause and if the entire content of the pallet is taken out, it shall be deemed accepted. If the customer uses the Goods beyond the initial receipt, it shall be deemed that the Goods conform to the relevant order and are fit for the purpose for which they are intended. The Buyer must separate and hold the Goods subject to any such claim and be available for inspection by Stone Depot.

In case of any dispute between the Buyer and Stone Depot in respect of the nature, quantity, or quality of any Goods supplied or services rendered, Stone Depot’s rights to receive payment from the Buyer will not be affected in any way whatsoever, nor will it give the Buyer the right to counterclaim or set-off.
Any delay or default by the Buyer in payment of any monies due to Stone Depot is a substantial breach of the Terms and Conditions of the Sales Order. Stone Depot may, without prejudice to its other rights, power, or remedies provided by law, withhold deliveries on the relevant Sales Order and all other Sales Orders placed by the Buyer until the due payments are realised.
Recurring payment default may lead to the Buyer’s account with Stone Depot being closed and any further Sales Order placed by the Buyer will only be processed when fully paid.
