DELIVERY, TITLE, AND RISK OF LOSS. Title to and risk of loss of all Goods sold hereunder by Seller shall pass to Buyer upon Buyer’s pick up of Goods at Seller’s location or warehouse.

All costs and expenses related to the shipment of any order, or part thereof, will be the sole responsibility of the Buyer. These include, but are not limited to, insurance, brokerage fees, taxes, duties, customs fees, inspection fees, etc. Whenever transportation rates and carrier’s liability for damage depend upon the value of the shipment as declared by shipper, Seller will declare such value as will entitle Buyer to have Goods shipped at the lowest permissible transportation rates unless otherwise instructed in writing by Buyer. Buyer will furnish written shipping instructions for all Goods as promptly as possible. In the absence of such instructions for all Goods Seller may do either of the following for the account and at the expense and risk of Buyer:(a) arrange for shipment of the Goods by carrier of its own selection;
(b) to Buyer’s place of business or other destination reasonably believed to be suitable, or
(c) warehouse the Goods. Buyer will not hold Seller liable for loss or damage attributed to negligence either in selection of the carrier or the warehouse or in agreeing with either of them to contract terms on Buyer’s behalf.

The balance is due prior to the date the manufacturer initiates shipment which date will be provided by Seller to Buyer when available. Seller may accelerate the terms of payment without prior notice if Buyer fails to pay when due any amount Buyer owes under any agreement with Seller. Buyer’s failure to make perfect tender of any payment when due shall be deemed a fundamental breach of this order. To secure payment of the purchase price of the Goods sold hereunder, Buyer hereby grants to Seller a continuing security interest in the Goods and in the proceeds of any subsequent resale.
EXCUSABLE DELAYS. Buyer acknowledges that the delivery dates herein are based on the assumption that there will be no delay due to causes beyond the reasonable control of Seller.
