- Your Responsibilities
3.1 You must inform PPC of any information relating to Your Car which might be relevant or helpful to PPC in carrying out the Services.
3.2 You will be responsible for any incorrect information supplied to PPC or failing to inform PPC of any relevant information.
3.3 If You are not the owner of the Car You are responsible for ensuring that You have the owner’s permission for the Services to be carried out, but You remain subject to these Terms and Conditions including payment of PPC’s invoices.
4.1 PPC may subcontract all or any part of the Services if, in our absolute discretion, specialist services are required for the purpose of completing the Services.
4.2 PPC shall retain the ownership of all Parts and materials supplied to You or fitted to the Car by Us and ownership will only transfer to You upon your settling in full the invoice(s) for the Services and/or Parts.
4.3 PPC reserves the right to increase its labour rates without any prior notice.
4.4 Where PPC removes or fits glass to Your Car, PPC will not accept any responsibility or liability for any breakage or damage to the glass.
5.1 Any estimate is PPC’s considered approximation of the likely cost of the Services and/or Parts.
5.2 All estimates are estimates only and are not to be treated as firm quotations.
5.3 The estimate is based on the cost for the Services at the time the estimate is given.
5.4 If PPC has provided an estimate and if such estimate will be exceeded then PPC will, where it is reasonable and practical to do so, notify You and will seek Your authorisation to continue with the Services. Where it is not reasonable or practical to notify you, PPC shall be entitled without Your authorisation to continue the Services where, in PPC’s reasonable opinion, it is necessary to do so.
6.1 PPC will store Your Car at Our premises whilst We are working on it and will take all reasonable precautions to ensure its security. Long term storage will be at our specialist independent storage facility and is chargeable on a weekly or monthly basis. Part weeks are charged on a full week basis.
- Collection of Your Car
7.1 PPC will inform You when the Services are complete or, if You decide not to proceed with Our recommendations, when You inform us of that decision. At that time Your Car will be ready for You to collect. If You do not collect it, or arrange for it to be collected within 7 working days PPC shall have the right to charge You £75 per day for storage of Your Car.
7.2 PPC will test drive Your Car prior to informing You when the Services are complete. PPC recommends that You test drive Your Car prior to collection. The test drive is Your opportunity to ensure You are satisfied with the Services. If You fail to test drive Your Car prior to collection then You shall be deemed to be completely satisfied with the Services.
7.3 If having test driven Your Car prior to collection You subsequently discover a defect in the Services within 6 months of the date of collection then PPC will remedy the same. For the avoidance of doubt, PPC shall have no obligation to remedy any defect with Your Car arising from the Services due to fair wear and tear, corrosion, improper use, neglect or poor maintenance, wilful damage, accident, collision or negligence, abnormal storage or operating conditions or damage caused by external factors including poor road surfaces, You or a third party failing to operate and use the Car in a safe and careful manner, any specification or information provided by You or on Your behalf which proves to be wrong or inadequate, and any modification, alteration or repair by You or a third party.
7.4 If You arrange for a third party to collect Your Car for You, You must ensure that PPC is informed of the name of person or company collecting the Car prior to collection. Third parties will be required to sign a release document at collection.
7.5 If You fail to remove Your Car within 3 months of our first notice to collect PPC shall be entitled to dispose of it in the manner permitted by Section 12 of the Torts (Inference with Goods) Act 1977.
8.1 The Car shall remain at Your risk at all times notwithstanding that You have entrusted the Car to PPC.
8.2 You shall insure the Car on an all risks policy at all times whilst the Car is in the custody of PPC and You shall, on request, provide documentary evidence of such insurance.
8.3 If You have an agreed valuation please inform us of that value and provide documentary evidence. If You believe the Car’s value is higher than market value You are advised to obtain an agreed valaution from your insurer and advise PPC accordingly.
- Estimates, Invoicing and Payment
9.1 If We provide You with an estimate for the price of the Parts and/or Services it will remain valid for 30 days.
9.2 The price of the Parts and/or Services may be increased above that given in any estimate by an amount attributable to (i) any suspension or alteration to the Services due to Your delay in providing instructions or changing Your instructions (ii) any variation in taxes and duties or other costs between the date of the estimate and date of the completion of the Services and (iii) any additional work found necessary to complete the Services but not specified in the estimate.
9.3 Save for invoices relating to special order Parts, all PPC invoices shall be due and payable on presentation to You unless on the face of the invoice another date is given. Invoices for special order Parts shall be paid in full at the time of the order. Save as otherwise expressly agreed in writing, Your Car shall only be available for collection when PPC is in receipt of cleared funds relating to the invoice(s) issued in relation to the Services.
9.4 Payment must be made by cash (up to a maximum of £5,000 including VAT), credit card (amounts including VAT up to £2,500) or bank transfer in Great British Pounds unless otherwise agreed by PPC first in writing.
9.5 PPC reserves the right to charge interest to You on all or any part of any invoice not settled in full by the due date at a rate of 8% above the base lending rate of the Bank of England until paid (even if that is after a court judgement). PPC also reserves the right to charge You fixed fees and recover all reasonable costs for debt collection.
9.6 PPC reserves the right to stop work on a Car if outstanding invoices have not been paid.
9.7 If Our invoices remain unpaid after presentation We will make efforts to contact You to request payment. If Our invoices remain unpaid We reserve the right to charge you for outstanding debts in whatever fashion and order as We see fit. Further, We will aportion any sums received from you against any debt outstanding as well as applying a charge against any parts or property in our possession. We may also take legal steps to recover the outstanding amount. If We are holding any of Your property We reserve the right to recover the outstanding amount by offering Your goods for sale. If this happens We will endeavour to get a fair market price but due to the impact that non payment of invoices has on cash flow this may not be possible because the parts may have to be offered at a discount to secure a quick sale. In the event that Your goods are sold and the amount realised is more than the outstanding monies owed We will pay You any balance less any reasonable costs. Should the amount realised on sale not be sufficient to cover the outstanding monies owed will We seek to recover the shortfall from You including Our reasonable costs in doing so.
9.8 All invoices are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate, where applicable.
9.9 Where Services are provided for a Car which is subject to an insurance claim, You agree at PPC’s request to sign any documents required by the insurer of the Car to authorise payment for the Services. If the insurer of the Car does not pay some or all of Our invoice You will be responsible for all unpaid sums.
- Events Outside Our Control

11.1 All used Parts are sold as seen or supplied and without warranty.

11.3 Subject always to clause 11.1, for all Parts supplied by and Services carried out by PPC (excluding any Services not done by PPC) PPC will make good, solely by means of repair or replacement at its cost (and not by a third party), any defects which are both notified by You within 60 days from the date of dispatch of the Parts or collection of the Car and are thereafter accepted by PPC as being attributable to faulty design, materials or workmanship on the part of the Company.
11.4 For any Parts not manufactured by or Services not done by PPC, PPC will where possible pass on to You any warranty given by the manufacturer, subject to You adhering to the terms of any such warranty.

11.8 Where PPC supplies a fully rebuilt engine or gearbox for installation by a third party the same warranty applies provided the installation and running instructions provided by PPC are fully adhered to. PPC will accept no liability for any damage or other costs associated with an engine or gearbox installed by a third party, which has not fully adhered to PPC’s installation and running instructions or the third party’s poor workmanship and workshop practice.
11.9 Where PPC supplies a rebuilt short engine the warranty applies to work undertaken by PPC. PPC cannot be responsible and will accept no liability for work undertaken by third parties.
11.10 PPC does not provide a warranty on rebuilt engines and gearboxes used in motorsport of all types, road rallies and track days unless by prior written agreement.
12.1 Delivery and collection of all Cars and Parts shall be at Our premises during Our normal working hours unless We specifically agree with You a time outside normal working hours.
12.2 All risk in any Services and Parts sold to You shall pass to You on completion of the Order or earlier delivery of Your Car or Parts to You.
12.3 An Order shall be deemed completed when (i) You or Your agent collects Your Car or Parts from Us or (ii) we dispatch Your Parts to You.
12.4 Title to Parts we sell to You shall only pass once You have paid in full the relevant invoice for the Parts in question.
12.5 Until ownership of the Parts has passed to You, You shall:
12.5.1 store them so that they remain readily identifiable as belonging to Us;
12.5.2 not remove, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to them; and
12.5.3 maintain them in satisfactory condition, keep them insured for their full value with a reputable insurer and ensure Our interest is noted on the policy and on request allow Us to inspect our Parts and the policy.
12.6 If before ownership of the Parts passes to You, You are subject to an Insolvency Event, then without limiting any other right We may have We may at any time:
12.6.1 require You to deliver to Us our Parts in Your possession which have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated in to another product; and
12.6.2 if You fail to do so promptly, enter Your or any third party’s premises where the relevant Parts are stored in order to recover them.
12.7 If PPC fail to comply with these Terms and Conditions, PPC shall only be responsible for loss or damage You suffer that is a foreseeable result of PPC’s breach of these Terms and Conditions or PPC’s negligence, but PPC are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable or which is not the result of Our breach of these Terms and Conditions or Our negligence. Any particular loss or damage is foreseeable only if at the time of this Agreement it was an obvious consequence of Our breach or negligence or it was clearly contemplated by both You and PPC at the time of this Agreement. You must make every effort to mitigate any loss and time shall not be of the essence of respect of the Services and accordingly PPC shall not be liable for any delay in supplying the Services.
