If the Goods remain on our premises owing only to the failure of you to accept the Goods or at your request, such Goods shall be at your risk.
7.1 As we are reliant on the cabin of the Goods and freighters, we can make no guarantees about delivery times. Any delivery time supplied to you is therefore a guideline only. Custom cabins take longer to make and occasionally components are not available immediately. If you have any specific timeframe requirements for delivery of the Goods, please advise these when placing the order, we will do all we can to meet them for you.
7.2 On delivery of the Goods, you must inspect the Goods as soon as reasonably possible to check that your order is complete and not damaged in anyway. If the order is not complete or damaged, you must notify us within 48 hours and supply us with whatever information or evidence you may have relating to the incomplete order or damaged Goods.
7.3 Subject to clause 7.2 and any obligation we have under the Consumer Guarantee Act 1963, if applicable, we will arrange for the order to be correctly completed and delivered or the damaged Goods replaced. If Goods are observed to be damaged on arrival, you must send the damaged Goods back with the same delivery driver if that is feasible at the time and notify us immediately.
7.4 Master Cabin will not be liable for any transport that arranged by customer.
8.1 Cabin flatpack/kitset being picked up from our factory or a freight depot must be picked up within 14 days of notification of their arrival. Failure to do so may incur a reasonable storage fee.
9.1 We work with experienced assemblers including a network of assemblers across the country who specialise in cabin assembly. We cannot guarantee an assembly time frame as that can be affected by demand and weather. Whenever applicable, we will, however, do our best to get the Goods erected for you in a timely manner.
9.2 Unless stated otherwise, all assembly work is quoted for a clear, level site on solid ground. If work is required to level or reinforce the site extra charges may be incurred on an hourly rate plus any materials. If there is more than 2 hours work required to prepare the site the assembler may choose to reschedule the job to a time when the site has been sufficiently prepared.
9.3 If the assembler arrives on site and finds that they cannot complete the job due to site conditions, we may charge you a reasonable call out fee.
Building Consent / Permits / Building Code Requirements
10.1 We strongly recommend you check any building consent requirements with your local council. We do not provide any building consent or permit advice.

Colours, Images and Product specifications
11.1 We recommend that you inspect a colour swatch if colours are critical to you. Computer screens and printing give an indication of colour only and are a close representation but not exact. To the maximum extent permitted by law, we are not responsible for any colour misrepresentations.
11.2 From time to time we may change our material specifications and product images. Every effort is made to ensure our website and literature display correct images and specifications; however, we reserve the right to change materials specified with like materials of similar or better appearance and durability.
12.1 Piles always the strongest foundation for any cabins. We particularly recommend piles for high wind areas.
12.2 Master Cabins are only warranted under clause 16 in high wind areas if assembled and correctly bolted to a recessed concrete pad.
12.3 Any concrete pads should be square and level. If they are not exactly square and level this can cause issues with the cabin assembly and extra charges may be incurred.
12.4 Please talk to us if you are in a high wind area so we can recommend the correct cabin and foundations to suit the location.
13.1 Occasionally Goods are supplied incorrectly by the warehouse. Master Cabins do their best to avoid such a situation, but it does happen from time to time. We will endeavour to resupply any incorrect or missing parts as quickly as possible.
14.1 If you have signed this Agreement as a guarantor, you agree that we may recover from you payment of any moneys owing by the customer to us.
Limitation of Liability
15.1 The Consumer Guarantees Act 1993, the Fair Trading Act 1986 and other statutes may imply warranties or conditions or impose obligations upon us which cannot by law (or which can only to a limited extent by law) be excluded or modified. In respect of any such implied warranties, conditions or terms imposed on us, our liability shall, where it is allowed, be excluded or if not able to be excluded only apply to the lesser of the minimum extent required by the relevant statute or the fees paid under the invoice for the Goods.
15.2 Except as otherwise provided by clause 15.1, we shall not be liable for any loss or damage of any kind whatsoever, arising from the supply of the Goods to you, including consequential loss whether suffered or incurred by you or another person and whether in contract or tort (including negligence) or otherwise and irrespective of whether such loss or damage arises directly or indirectly from the Goods provided by us to you.
15.3 The guarantees contained in the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 are excluded where we provide the Goods for the purposes of a business in terms of sections 2 and 43 of the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.
15.4 We will not be liable to you for any loss or damage arising out of or in connection with any delay or failure to perform the terms of the contract of supply where such delay or failure is caused directly or indirectly from causes beyond our control (including any failure by any of our suppliers to supply on time).
15.5 Except as otherwise stated in clause 15.1 we will not be liable to you for any loss or damage arising out of any misuse or abuse of the Goods or in the case of any Express Warranty provided by a manufacturer, any failure to comply with the requirements for the use or maintenance of the Goods as stated in such express warranty.
Warranties and Warnings
16.1 No representation, condition, warranty or premise expressed or implied by law or otherwise applies to the Goods or Services except where the Goods are supplied pursuant to the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 (subject to clause 15.1 and 15.3) or particular Goods are supplied with a manufacturer’s express warranty included in which case such warranty will apply.
16.2 We take pride in the Goods we supply to our customers and subject to this Agreement we stand behind the quality of the Goods we supply when they are properly used and maintained or where applicable used in accordance with any manufacturer’s express warranty for any particular type of Goods.

16.4 Subject to your compliance with clause 16.3, if you observe an imperfection or fault arising from the use of any Goods supplied by us within twelve (12) months of the Goods having been delivered to you, then subject to this Agreement and particularly clause 15, which recognises that you may have certain additional rights under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and the Fair Trading Act 1986, if we are satisfied in our discretion having regard to reasonable and normal use of the Goods and the material composition of the Goods that there is in our view a justified claim of imperfection or defect, then we will at our cost either remedy the imperfection or defect if that is reasonably possible or replace the item for you if a replacement is available. You should appreciate however that sometimes remedies or restoration cannot entirely remove the imperfection in some items due to the nature of the material used in the item or the work undertaken to repair an item.
16.5 Where particular Goods are manufactured and an express warranty is provided by the manufacturer, you must:
(a) comply with the manufacturer’s requirements for use and maintenance of the Goods where that is applicable;
(b) note any specific disclaimer that may apply to such Goods with regard to standards of use and location.
16.6 Any warranty provided by us or the manufacturer of the Goods will not cover damage, whether accidental or intentional to the Goods.
16.7 You will need to arrange your own insurance cover for the Goods to cover damage due to acts of God, fire or extreme weather conditions.
17.1 You indemnify us and our officers, directors, agents, advisers and employees against any actions, proceedings, losses, damages, liabilities, claims, costs and expenses including fines, penalties, legal and other professional costs on a full indemnity basis that we or any of our officers, directors, agents, advisers or employees incurs or suffers as a direct or indirect result of the provision of the Goods by us to you pursuant to this agreement or any breach of this Agreement by you.

19.3 No failure or delay on the part of either party in exercising any power or right under this Agreement will operate as a waiver, nor will any single or partial exercise of such right or power preclude any other or future exercise of the same, or any other right or power contained in this Agreement.
19.4 We shall not be liable for any failure or delay which results from circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation: unavoidable delays in production; delays in the delivery of raw materials; default by sub-contractors; default by component suppliers; strikes and labour unrest; shipping delays; shortages; war; government intervention; fire; flood; accident; natural disaster; or any other event interpreted under New Zealand law.
19.5 All intellectual property relating to the Goods supplied including trademarks and copyright remains at all times the property of the owner and must not be infringed in anyway by you.
