Whelson is not responsible for the loading and off-loading of goods, unless prior
arrangements have been agreed upon in writing. The correct legal dimensions and weight
distribution over the axles (truck and trailer) is the responsibility of the customer.
Any fines and additional costs resulting from illegal dimensions and/or weight
distribution will be for the customer’s account.
It shall be the express responsibility of the customer to ensure that:
All goods loaded shall be in such condition as to enable due off-loading to be
freely effected at the point of destination of such off-loading
Suitable access and off-loading facilities and adequate labour and equipment will be
provided for the due off-loading of the goods at the point of destination
The goods are off-loaded into the correct tank, vessel or container store or
warehouse, as the case may be
Loading and off-loading will be possible at the agreed points and during such hours
and days as the parties have agreed.
The customer warrants that if any goods require special appliances for loading upon
or off-loading from the vehicle, those applications will be available at the point
of collection or place of delivery of the goods.
If for any reason goods are left on Whelson’s vehicle and/or delivered to Whelson’s
premises to suit the convenience of the customer, such goods are held at the sole
risk of the customer. Pending forwarding and delivery, goods may be warehoused or
otherwise held at any place or places at the sole discretion of Whelson at the
customer’s risk and expense.
