Delivery Policy

Tranportation

We know how important it is to you that you receive your product as soon as possible after purchasing it from Bataviya Traders CC T/A Al-cell. For those items that are in stock, we aim to deliver regular parcels to central areas in South Africa within 2-7 business days, to outlying areas within South Africa within 5-7 business days and special freight items within 15-21 business days from the date your payment has been received. For those products that are made to order, or are not currently in stock, please see the estimated availability date for each product.

We will notify you if we are unable to meet our estimated delivery timeframe but, to the extent permitted by law, we shall not be liable for any losses, liabilities, costs, damages, charges or expenses arising out of late delivery.
Items will be delivered to the address you provided while placing an order. For special freight items the courier might contact you directly to agree on an appropriate delivery time.

If, for any reason, the courier cannot reach you at the agreed delivery time, we will provide you with the instructions to either collect the product(s) directly from a courier depot if possible (in case of regular parcels) or to re-arrange the delivery (in case of special freight). In these situations, Bataviya Traders CC T/A Al-cell. reserves the right to charge you for any additional costs incurred (e.g. delivery and storage) or to cancel the sale contract, in which case, we will fully refund you the net amount (i.e. the amount you paid minus delivery costs or storage costs).

Upon delivery, you will be asked to sign a delivery form, in which you confirm that the product was delivered in the correct condition (without obvious defects or damage).

All risk in the Product shall pass to you upon delivery, except that, where delivery is delayed due to a breach of your obligations under a Contract, risk shall pass at the date when delivery would have occurred but for your breach. From the time when risk passes to you, we will not be liable for loss or destruction of the Product.

You shall ensure that you are ready for safe receipt of the Product without undue delay and at any time reasonably specified by us.

If you are not available to take delivery or collection, we may leave a card giving you instructions on either re-delivery or collection from the courier.

If delivery or collection is delayed through your unreasonable refusal to accept delivery or if you do not (within two weeks of our first attempt to deliver the Product to you) accept delivery or collect the Product from the courier, then we may (without affecting any other right or remedy available to us) do either or both of the following:

  • Charge you for our reasonable storage fee and other costs reasonably incurred by us; or
  • No longer make the Product available for delivery or collection and notify you that we are immediately cancelling the applicable Contract, in which case we will refund to you or your credit or debit card company as applicable any money already paid to us under the applicable Contract, less our 15 % administration charges (including for attempting to deliver and then returning the Product, and any storage fees).

It is your responsibility to ensure that the Products are enough and suitable for your purposes and meet your individual requirements. We do not warrant that the Products will meet your individual requirements. You acknowledge that the Products are standard and not made bespoke to fit any requirements that you may have
