1.      All sales are subject to these terms and conditions ("Contract") and, if buying on credit, to Buyer's credit agreement with Seller, incorporated herein by reference; all other terms, including any terms contained in Buyer's purchase order, are excluded. Any changes must be in writing and signed by each party. For all disputes relating to this Contract, this Contract will be governed by the laws of, and Buyer hereby consents to the jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts for, the location of the delivery site of the goods sold hereunder.

2.      Payment is due in full on the date stated on the front of the invoice. Interest at the lesser of 1½ % per month or the maximum rate allowed by law will be imposed on outstanding and delinquent invoices from the date of delivery until paid. Buyer will pay to Seller all applicable federal, state and local sales and use taxes. In addition to any other available rights and remedies, Seller will be entitled to recover from Buyer all costs of collection and litigation including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees. Seller reserves the right to require payments in advance or to cancel the unfilled portion of this Contract without notice in the event of Buyer default of any Contract provisions, or if Buyer's financial status becomes impaired or deemed unsatisfactory to Seller.

3.      Regular delivery hours are 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. An additional charge may be added for deliveries outside of these hours and for any waiting/unloading periods in excess of 60 minutes. Prices are based on full loads; an additional charge will apply to short loads.

4.      Buyer should give Seller at least 48 hours prior notice of the time and rate of requested deliveries. Delivery schedules will be mutually agreed upon between Seller and Buyer. Seller reserves the right to reject any order. Agreed-upon deliveries will be made to the best of Seller's ability to dispatch, however, Buyer waives any claims associated with any delays in delivery. 

5.      Buyer must provide suitable approaches to delivery points beyond paved streets. For delivery beyond curb lines, Buyer assumes all liability for damage to vehicles, sidewalks, driveways, pipes, septic tanks, and/or other property, and Buyer will indemnify and hold Seller harmless from and against any and all liability, loss and expense incurred as a result of such delivery, including but not limited to towing charges, except to the extent caused by Seller's gross negligence or willful misconduct. Buyer waives any right of subrogation against Seller.

6.      Buyer must provide an appropriate location and facility (in compliance with applicable law) for Seller to washout the truck's chutes and drum after discharging concrete. Buyer is responsible for full payment of, including all costs of disposal and Seller's return charge per truck for, (i) orders not cancelled at least one hour prior to delivery time; (ii) concrete delivered due to Buyer's mistake or in excess of requirements; (iii) concrete not deliverable due to unsuitable approaches. 

7.      Concrete prices and quantities are based upon the wet volume at the time of discharge from the truck, and are not sold "form measurement" or measured "in place". Yield will be established in strict accordance with applicable ASTM standards. Buyer will pay all charges incident to inspection or tests made by or on behalf of Buyer.

8.      Limited Warranty: Buyer is solely responsible for determining the type and quantity of goods to be purchased. Concrete will be batched and delivered in accordance with ASTM C-94. Seller warrants that its products will meet or exceed applicable American Society for Testing Materials ("ASTM") and American Concrete Institute ("ACI") standards, when tested in accordance with ASTM and evaluated by ACI standards. Seller will repair or replace any goods supplied by Seller that fail to meet this limited warranty, within one year after delivery thereof, subject to the Limitation of Liability in Sec. 13 below. ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED. THE REMEDY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 8 WILL CONSTITUTE THE SOLE REMEDY OF BUYER UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY.

 

9.      Seller is not responsible for slump, strength or quality of any concrete to which water or other material has been added by or on behalf of Buyer. Buyer is responsible to see that the concrete is handled in accordance with best construction practices. Seller has no control over the placing or handling of concrete after unloading and does not guarantee the finished work in which it is used. Buyer is responsible to prevent unloaded concrete from coming into contact with any material, such as aluminum, which may adversely impact concrete strength. 

10. Buyer will furnish any admixtures or ingredients it desires that are not regularly supplied by the Seller in the marketplace. Buyer will be solely responsible for the effect of such admixture or ingredients on the concrete. Any extra product which may be required in excess of the mix design quoted, or which may be required to provide workability, strength, setting time or water/cement ratio, will result in an additional ingredient charge payable by Buyer.

11. Concrete temperature will be dictated by the environmental and material conditions at the time of delivery. Any requirement beyond these conditions will require the implementation of controlled measures during production at the expense of Buyer. Buyer is responsible for the requirements of ACI 305R and 306R, except as pertain to production.

12. Buyer must give Seller written notice within 48 hours after delivery of any claim against Seller as a result of any alleged nonconforming materials or any other cause whatsoever (other than failure to meet compressive strength, in which event the time for notice will be within 48 hours after the specified test age of the test cylinder in accordance with ASTM standards), time being of the essence. Seller will be given reasonable opportunity to investigate all claims. Any failure by Buyer to give written notice within such 48 hour period will be deemed a conclusive waiver by Buyer of all such claims against Seller. 

13. SELLER WILL NOT BE LIABLE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DAMAGES RELATED TO DELAY, WHETHER BASED ON STATUTE, TORT, CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT ARISING FROM SELLER'S NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR FAULT. IN NO EVENT WILL SELLER BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES DUE TO THE ACTIONS OF OTHERS OR THE FAILURE OF BUYER TO COMPLY WITH ITS OBLIGATIONS. SELLER'S LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIMS WILL BE LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE GOODS SOLD UNDER THIS CONTRACT.

14. Failure of Seller to exercise any of its rights hereunder will not be deemed a waiver of any such right; a waiver of any right or obligation hereunder will not constitute a continuing waiver. The unenforceability of any provision of this Contract will not affect the enforceability of any other provision of this Contract, and each other provision of this Contract will be severable and enforceable to the extent permitted by law.
