In addition to the Price, the Customer must pay to Pit Stop an amount equal to any GST Pit Stop must pay for any supply by Pit Stop under this or any other agreement for the sale of the Parts. The Customer must pay GST, without deduction or set off of any other amounts, at the same time and on the same basis as the Customer pays the Price. In addition, the Customer must pay any other taxes and duties that may be applicable in addition to the Price except where they are expressly included in the Price.
Pit Stop reserves the right to change the Price:
if a variation to the Works which is to be provided is requested; or
if during the course of the Works, the Parts are not or cease to be available from Pit Stop’s third-party suppliers or the acquired part is deemed to not be compliant to complete the repair/s, then Pit Stop reserves the right to provide alternate/upgraded Parts subject to prior confirmation and agreement of both parties; or
where additional Works are required due to the discovery of hidden or unidentifiable difficulties (including, but not limited to, further faults which are found upon disassembly and/or further inspection, in the case of breakdowns where the vehicle is bogged or immovable etc) which are only discovered upon commencement of the Works; or
in the event of increases to Pit Stop in the cost of labour or Parts which are beyond Pit Stop’s control.
Variations will be charged for on the basis of Pit Stop’s quotation, and will be detailed in writing, and shown as variations on Pit Stop’s invoice. The Customer shall be required to respond to any variation submitted by Pit Stop within ten (10) working days. Failure to do so will entitle Pit Stop to add the cost of the variation to the Price. Payment for all variations must be made in full at the time of their completion.
Where Pit Stop is requested to store the Customer’s vehicle, or where the vehicle is not collected within twenty-four (24) hours of advice to the Customer that it is ready for collection, then Pit Stop (at its sole discretion) may charge a fee of thirty-five dollars ($35) per day for storage.
All tow and/or salvage fees will be charged to the Customer, and will be added to the Price.

retain any components replaced during the provision of the Works; and

Any time specified by Pit Stop for delivery of the Works is an estimate only and Pit Stop will not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by the Customer as a result of delivery being late. However, both parties agree that they shall make every endeavour to enable the Works to be supplied at the time and place as was arranged between both parties. In the event that Pit Stop is unable to supply the Works as agreed solely due to any action or inaction of the Customer, then Pit Stop shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for re-supplying the Works at a later time and date, and/or for storage of the Parts.
In the event of a call out, the Customer shall ensure that Pit Stop has clear and free access to the vehicle and/or site where the vehicle is located at all times to enable them to undertake the Works. Pit Stop shall not be liable for any loss or damage to the site (including, without limitation, damage to pathways, driveways and concreted or paved or grassed areas) unless due to the negligence of Pit Stop.
If Pit Stop retains ownership of the Parts under clause 10 then:
where Pit Stop is supplying Parts only, all risk for the Parts shall immediately pass to the Customer on delivery and the Customer must insure the Parts on or before delivery. Delivery of the Parts shall be deemed to have taken place immediately at the time that either:
the Customer or the Customer’s nominated carrier takes possession of the Parts at Pit Stop’s address; or
the Parts are delivered by Pit Stop or Pit Stop’s nominated carrier to the Customer’s nominated delivery address (even if the Customer is not present at the address).
Notwithstanding the provisions of clause 9.1 if the Customer specifically requests Pit Stop to leave Parts outside Pit Stop’s premises for collection or to deliver the Parts to an unattended location then such materials shall always be left at sole risk of the Customer and it shall be the Customer’s responsibility to ensure the Parts are insured adequately or at all. In the event that such Parts are lost, damaged or destroyed then replacement of the Parts shall be at the Customer’s expense.
The Customer acknowledges and accepts that:
where Pit Stop has performed temporary repairs on the vehicle that:
Pit Stop offers no guarantee against the reoccurrence of the initial fault, or any further damage caused; and
Pit Stop will immediately advise the Customer of the fault and shall provide the Customer with an estimate for the full repair required; and
in the event the Customer requests Pit Stop to work on a vehicle, and leaves the vehicle and/or the keys at Pit Stop’s premises whilst the site is unattended, then Pit Stop shall not be responsible for the security of the vehicle or the keys, and shall not be held liable for any loss, damages or costs howsoever resulting; and
Pit Stop is only responsible for Parts that are replaced by Pit Stop and does not at any stage accept any liability in respect of previous services and/or goods supplied by any other third party that subsequently fail and found to be the source of the failure, the Customer agrees to indemnify Pit Stop against any loss or damage to the Parts, or caused by the Parts, or any part thereof howsoever arising.
Pit Stop shall not be liable for the loss of or damage to the Customer’s vehicle, its accessories or contents while being repaired or operated in connection with the authorised Works (including in the event of a call-out: it shall be the Customer’s responsibility to remain with the vehicle to ensure security of the same), unless caused by the negligence of Pit Stop, or Pit Stop’s employees.
It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that the Customer’s vehicle is insured against all possible damage (including, but not limited to, the perils of accident, fire, theft and burglary and all other usual risks) whilst stored at Pit Stop’s premises. The vehicle is at all times stored and repaired at the Customer’s sole risk.
Pit Stop or its employees may test drive or carry out tests on the vehicle at Pit Stop’s discretion. Pit Stop will not be liable for (and the Customer indemnifies Pit Stop against) any damages caused to, or by, the vehicle during such tests, collecting or delivery unless it arises from the recklessness or wilful misconduct of Pit Stop or its employees.
Pit Stop and the Customer agree that ownership of the Parts shall not pass until:
the Customer has paid Pit Stop all amounts owing to Pit Stop; and
the Customer has met all of its other obligations to Pit Stop.
Receipt by Pit Stop of any form of payment other than cash shall not be deemed to be payment until that form of payment has been honoured, cleared or recognised.

until ownership of the Parts passes to the Customer in accordance with clause 10.1 that the Customer is only a bailee of the Parts and unless the Parts have become fixtures must return the Parts to Pit Stop on request;
the Customer holds the benefit of the Customer’s insurance of the Parts on trust for Pit Stop and must pay to Pit Stop the proceeds of any insurance in the event of the Parts being lost, damaged or destroyed;

the Customer must not sell, dispose, or otherwise part with possession of the Parts other than in the ordinary course of business and for market value. If the Customer sells, disposes or parts with possession of the Parts then the Customer must hold the proceeds of any such act on trust for Pit Stop and must pay or deliver the proceeds to Pit Stop on demand;
the Customer should not convert or process the Parts or intermix them with other goods but if the Customer does so then the Customer holds the resulting product on trust for the benefit of Pit Stop and must sell, dispose of or return the resulting product to Pit Stop as it so directs;
Pit Stop may recover possession of any Parts in transit whether or not delivery has occurred;
the Customer shall not charge or grant an encumbrance over the Parts nor grant nor otherwise give away any interest in the Parts while they remain the property of Pit Stop; and
Pit Stop may commence proceedings to recover the Price of the Parts sold notwithstanding that ownership of the Parts has not passed to the Customer.
Upon assenting to these terms and conditions in writing the Customer acknowledges and agrees that:
these terms and conditions constitute a security agreement for the purposes of the PPSA; and
a security interest is taken in all Parts and/or collateral (account) – being a monetary obligation of the Customer to Pit Stop for Works –that have previously been supplied and that will be supplied in the future by Pit Stop to the Customer.

Further to any other rights or remedies Pit Stop may have under this Contract, if a Customer has made payment to Pit Stop, and the transaction is subsequently reversed, the Customer shall be liable for the amount of the reversed transaction, in addition to any further costs incurred by Pit Stop under this clause 16, where it can be proven that such reversal is found to be illegal, fraudulent or in contravention to the Customer’s obligations under this Contract.

Pit Stop will not be liable to the Customer for any loss or damage the Customer suffers because Pit Stop has exercised its rights under this clause.
Pit Stop may cancel any contract to which these terms and conditions apply or cancel delivery of Works at any time before the Works are commenced by giving written notice to the Customer.

Furthermore, the Customer agrees and understands that they have no authority to give any instruction to any of Pit Stop’s subcontractors without the authority of Pit Stop.
The Customer agrees that Pit Stop may amend their general terms and conditions for subsequent future contracts with the Customer by disclosing such to the Customer in writing. These changes shall be deemed to take effect from the date on which the Customer accepts such changes, or otherwise at such time as the Customer makes a further request for Pit Stop to provide Works to the Customer.
Neither party shall be liable for any default due to any act of God, war, terrorism, strike, lock-out, industrial action, fire, flood, storm or other event beyond the reasonable control of either party.
Both parties warrant that they have the power to enter into this Contract and have obtained all necessary authorisations to allow them to do so, they are not insolvent and that this Contract creates binding and valid legal obligations on them.
