GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF Hollandico BV, ROTTERDAM (Chamber of Commerce NL 68167032) These general terms and conditions apply to all offers of HOLLANDICO BV. and all agreements that are entered into by HOLLANDICO BV (hereinafter: “Hollandico”). General terms and conditions of the other party are expressly rejected. Differing terms and conditions or stipulations only form part of the agreement where these terms and conditions or stipulations are expressly agreed in writing.


All offers and quotations are without obligation and purely indicative, unless otherwise agreed in writing. An offer that includes a deadline may nevertheless be revoked by Hollandico, even after receipt of the order/instruction, provided this is within five days. Indications of weights, speed, fuel, load capacity, energy consumption, etc. are given as a best approximation, but are not binding on Hollandico and the other party may not derive any rights from these. All quotations are the prices applicable at the time of the offer or the establishment of the agreement, CIF port of destination, excluding VAT and other costs, such as levies, customs duties, etc. However the risk conditions remain exworks dealer’s warehouse at origin.


An agreement is established on the suspensory condition that Hollandico has approved and confirmed the order/instruction or started the execution of the order/instruction.


The other party is obliged to pay all invoices of Hollandico before the delivery of the goods concerned or before the performance of the work concerned, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Hollandico is entitled to suspend delivery of the goods concerned or performance of the relevant work until all invoices of Hollandico sent to the other party concerned have been paid. The other party is in default solely by the passing of the agreed payment term, without notice of default being required for this, irrespective of whether or not exceeding the payment term can be attributed to the other party. If invoices are not settled within the agreed payment term solely on the passing of this payment term the other party owes the statutory (commercial) interest on the

 invoice amount to Hollandico, counting from the invoice date of the invoice concerned up to the time of full payment. If invoices are not paid within the agreed payment term solely on the passing of this payment term the other party owes a percentage of 15% on the invoice amount as out of court costs, without prejudice to the right of Hollandico to recover the costs actually incurred from the other party. Payments of the other party first serve to cover all interest payable then all the (out of court) costs payable and finally the oldest invoices payable, even if the other party indicates otherwise upon payment. In case of late payment any adverse exchange rate difference for Hollandico shall be for account of the other party. Reference dates are the due date of the invoice and the date on which payment is made. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the other party is not authorised to offset any amount that it owes to Hollandico with a claim that the other party states it has.


The delivery date stated or agreed in the offer and/or confirmation of order shall not be a deadline, not even if this is expressly accepted by client. In case of late delivery Hollandico is therefore only in default after written notice of default, if it does not make delivery within a reasonable period. There can be no question of default of Hollandico if the other party defaults in the obligations resting on it or there is a justified fear that it will default in this, irrespective of whether this fear is legitimate. There can also be no question of default of Hollandico if the other party does not put Hollandico in a position to carry out the agreement, among other things if the client remains in default of notifying the place of delivery or making available data, goods or facilities required for the performance. Delivery is made CIF Incoterms 2020, unless another Incoterms of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) (2010) is agreed in writing, however the risk conditions remain exworks dealer’s warehouse at origin. Delivery is made up to agreed port of destination subject to feasibility, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Part deliveries are permitted. All goods are carried for account and risk of the other party, irrespective of whether transport costs are charged. When Hollandico is responsible for shipment of the goods or if the agreed terms and conditions of the ICC Incoterms lays this responsibility on Hollandico, the time, method of shipment and shipment route are the choice of Hollandico, but remain for account and risk of the other party. Transport insurance will be ordered standard by Hollandico or annulled expressly on request from client; all costs relating thereto are for its account. All customs formalities, both in the country of export and in the country of import must be handled by the other party. All costs and levies relating to customs formalities are for account of the other party. If Hollandico on request of the other party is responsible for customs formalities or if the agreed terms and conditions of the ICC Incoterms lay this responsibility on Hollandico, these customs formalities and the costs and levies relating thereto remain for account and risk of the other party. The other party is not permitted to sell on the goods purchased directly or indirectly or in any way to make them available to third parties (including: persons, authorities, organisations, corporate bodies, regimes and/or countries) against which sanctions have been promulgated by the United Nations (UN), (countries of) the European Union (EU) and/or the United States (US)). The other party indemnifies Hollandico for possible penalties by the relevant authorities for Hollandico as well as (consequential) damages of this for Hollandico that are in any way attributable to the commercial relationship with the other party or an agreement with the other party. If the other party does not collect the goods within the agreed period, they are stored for his account and risk or sold by Hollandico BV. Hollandico is entitled to recover its claim from the proceeds. Hollandico is in that case entitled to cancel the agreement, notwithstanding its other rights. A claim of the other party against Hollandico, including where applicable a warranty claim, cannot be transferred and cannot be pledged to third parties. Parties may agree otherwise in writing. ARTICLE 5 – WARRANTIES No warranties are given by Hollandico relating to goods sold. Goods are sold and delivered in the state they were in at the time of conclusion of the agreement. The other party has the right to inspect the goods before the delivery for own account at a time and place determined by Hollandico. An exception may only be made to this provision in writing.


Hollandico is authorised to cancel the agreement with immediate effect, without judicial intervention, in full or in part or to suspend the performance, without prejudice to the other rights falling to it (to fulfilment and/or compensation), if: - the other party contravenes any provision of the agreement between parties; - a (foreign) statutory regulation is applied with the purpose of liquidating the other party or clearing the burden of debt of the other party, such as bankruptcy, (provisional) suspension of payment and similar statutory regulations; - the business of the other party is shut down or liquidated or a private agreement is offered to creditors by the other party; - the other party, after being asked to do so in writing, has not provided suitable security within seven days in the opinion of Hollandico. - Hollandico has justified reasons for fearing that the other party is planning to sell on the goods purchased directly or indirectly or in any way to make them available to third parties ((including: persons, authorities, organisations, corporate bodies, regimes and/or countries) against which sanctions have been promulgated by the United Nations (UN), (countries of) the European Union (EU) and/or the United States (US)). In these cases any claim on the other party is immediately payable, without Hollandico being obliged to compensation or any other obligation whatever. If the other party remains in default with payment and/or purchase for more than fourteen days or wishes to cancel the agreement Hollandico is without further notice entitled to resell the goods sold, in which case the down payment made to Hollandico lapses as compensation for the damage suffered by it, except for delivery by client of evidence that this damage is less and without prejudice to the right of Hollandico to recover the damage actually suffered by it from the other party. Hollandico is in that case authorised to cancel the agreement.


Delivery of goods sold is made on reservation of title. This reservation applies for claims for payment of all goods supplied or to be supplied by Hollandico to client by virtue of any agreement and/or work carried out as part of delivery, as well as in relation to claims because of the default of the other party in the fulfilment of these agreements. Hollandico is in the cases mentioned in article 6 authorised to take back the goods supplied that have remained its property in accordance with the first paragraph. Such taking back applies unless otherwise notified in writing, as a cancellation of the agreement(s) signed with the other party. The other party authorises Hollandico where necessary irrevocably to remove the relevant goods (or to have them removed) from where they are. Also in the case where the title has not been transferred to the other party on the basis of this article, the other party is obliged from the time of delivery in accordance with the applicable Incoterms 2010, to insure the vehicle properly, or at least legally and the officially payable levies are for his account. The other party indemnifies Hollandico in this respect. ARTICLE 8 – LIABILITY Hollandico is not liable for damage arising as a result of any shortcoming in the fulfilment of its obligation(s) with respect to the other party. Any claim for compensation even that relating to trading loss (loss owing to stoppage, loss of income and other indirect damage of any type whatever) and damage as a result of liability to third parties is expressly excluded, unless this involves intent or gross negligence of Hollandico or managerial employees. Hollandico is also not liable for intent or (gross) negligence of (nonmanagerial) employees or of third parties that it has called in as part of the performance of the agreement. Advice from Hollandico is given to the best of its knowledge and expertise based on the information available to it at that time. The other party may not derive any rights from such advice. Hollandico is not liable for advice given by it or on its behalf. Hollandico is not liable for damage to goods of third parties who are present on its site.


If the other party continues to use goods to be exchanged or sold to Hollandico, whether or not in anticipation of the delivery of the good purchased by it, all costs relating to the goods exchanged and any diminution in value of these are for its account. At the time of issue of the goods to be exchanged or purchased to Hollandico these goods must be in the same state as at the time of valuation or the time of the conclusion of the purchase/exchange agreement. If this is not the case

Hollandico is authorised to refuse the goods purchased without any compensation being payable, and in case of exchange, to demand the agreed purchase price of the vehicle in (scriptural) money, or to revalue the vehicle to be exchanged.


To prepare for and implement a (proposed) agreement, Hollandico is authorised to process the necessary (personal) data of the other party. If the other party is a company, Hollandico is also authorised to process the necessary (personal) data of the natural persons behind this company (the Ultimate Beneficial Owner). The (personal) data to be processed in all cases include the name and address data, bank and tax data and all other data that Hollandico considers necessary for the correct implementation of the (proposed) agreement. The (personal) data are processed with the purpose of keeping correct records and implementing the (proposed) agreement. This in any case also includes the processing of the (personal) data of the other party (and/or its UBO) in order to investigate and to check whether the (proposed) agreement with the other party and its UBO infringes any (inter)national regulations and/or sanctions. The (personal) data may also be collected and processed for commercial purposes, such as making offers, sending out newsletters, etc. The (personal) data of the other party (and/or its UBO) are only processed by Hollandico or companies associated with Hollandico. The (personal) data are not passed on by Hollandico (and/or the companies associated with Hollandico) to third parties unless this is necessary for the correct implementation of the (proposed) agreement or Hollandico is obliged/required to do so on the basis of (inter)national regulations (including sanction decisions) and/or judicial decisions.

The other party indemnifies Hollandico for all demands and claims because of the infringement of privacy.


If one or more provisions of the agreement with the other party are not or not fully legally valid, the other provisions remain in full effect. Instead of the invalid provisions a suitable regulation applies, that comes as close as possible to the intention of parties and the economic result aimed for by them in a legally effective way.

  1. Inspections are prepared from visual and external checks of the Vehicle only and are limited to the parts and/or items identified on the Report. Inspections do not involve dismantling or disturbing any structure, assembly, component or internal mechanism. The Inspector will not carry out a road test of the Vehicle. There are certain parts of the Vehicle which will not be looked at (see clause 5). You should read the Report Checklist and these terms and conditions carefully to see what will not be checked.
  2. A copy of the Report will be sent to You by email to the email address You provide when ordering an Inspection unless You request that we post the Report to You. Due to the nature of the internet and the virus-protection software utilised by your internet service provider or loaded on to your computer, it may not be possible in all cases to guarantee delivery of the Report by email. In the event that You do not receive Your Report within 24 hours of the Truck-Time Inspections taking place you must notify Us as soon as reasonably possible in order that We can resend Your Report to You. We shall not be liable to You for any failure to deliver a Report to the extent that non- delivery is outside of Our reasonable control.
  3. Items which are listed on the Report Checklist as a part/item to be checked, but which are not reasonably accessible on the Vehicle, will not be inspected. In such circumstances, We will be under no obligation to inspect and/or report on the part/item in question and the Inspector will mark the relevant section of the Report accordingly.
  4. The vehicle should be reasonably clean to ensure that the Inspector can clearly see and accurately report on the relevant vehicle parts inspected. Where the vehicle is not clean, the Inspector reserves the right not to comment on those parts and will mark the Report Checklist accordingly. In such case, the Report Fee shall be fully payable.


5. Without prejudice to clauses 1 and 2 above, the items We do not check are:

a) Any parts which require dismantling/ removing/ disconnecting or taking apart for inspection purposes; b) Vehicle data checks

c) Oil and fuel consumption;

d) Source of oil leaks;

e) Brake lining material (other than what is immediately visible and can be seen without dismantling anything);

f) Brake fluid for contamination. Brake fluid will deteriorate over a period of time and We advise that it be replaced as recommended by the Vehicle manufacturer;

g) Operation of cassette, compact-disc players, TV/DVD/satellite navigation systems, Bluetooth or other in-car entertainment;*

h) Sound or radio reception and alarm systems;*

i) Cylinder compression, vehicle electrics and electronics which would require specific diagnostic equipment;

j) Exhaust emissions and/or catalytic converters. If this is assessed by the Inspector as passing the Inspection it only relates to confirming its external condition, gas tightness and security. The Inspector is unable to confirm its internal condition or effectiveness as this requires exhaust emission testing which is not included in the Inspection;

k) The accuracy of in-car computer systems (for example, but in no way restricted to, computers used for route finding, fuel efficiency or otherwise);

l) Exhaust emissions;

m) Air conditioning functions and efficiency*;

n) The habitation area of Motorhomes - The electrical systems and appliances, water fittings and appliances, and the gas fitting and appliances are not checked. These are beyond the scope of the Inspection.

These include engine-management systems, fuel systems, ignition systems, air- conditioning systems, lambda-controlled systems, stereo radio, cassettes, amplifiers, compact discs (single and multi), TV/DVD, satellite navigation, active and self- levelling suspensions, gearboxes, turbo-chargers and superchargers, anti-lock braking systems, four- wheel drive and electronic lockable differential units, traction control, alarm and immobiliser systems, catalytic exhaust systems, and variable camshaft timing systems.

p) Non-standard accessories as a result of personal modifications or otherwise.

Within the scope of the Inspection it is not possible to check fully the detailed operation of these systems due to the many variations in features and operating modes, and it is not possible to confirm that these systems are functioning fully to the manufacturers design specifications. As a result, the Inspector is unable to confirm the detailed operation of any of these systems other than giving an overall view and opinion on the performances generally inspected or checked. Therefore, We cannot be held in any way liable to You for failing to identify any malfunction or failure of any of these systems to perform to the specification as designed by the manufacturer;

*These items will be checked completely, but a brief check of functioning when possible in the available time-frame.

6. Furthermore, the Inspection cannot:

a) confirm whether or not the passenger or luggage compartments (including the body or caravan area of any Motorhome) are watertight; or

b) predict the life expectancy of exhaust systems, clutches or dual-mass flywheels;

c) provide any indication of any faults which might have become apparent had the Vehicle been driven in excess of the speed reached or the distance travelled during any road test carried out by the Inspector;

d) confirm that all or any of the components of the Vehicle are original components, or replacement components that have been manufactured by the manufacturer of the vehicle;

e) confirm that the Vehicle would pass any country specific yearly vehicle inspection test.

f) include the inspection of any parts, components or areas of the Vehicle that are not reasonably visible or accessible to the Inspector at the time of the Inspection;

g) confirm authenticity of the Vehicle’s Registration Document, the mileage, the inspection certificate, Licences, the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), the Engine Number, the Registered Number or the Vehicle service history; or

h) check for any recall notices. recommends that You check with the Vehicle manufacturer that the Vehicle has not been subject to such notices.

7. The Inspection can only describe and/or identify defects actually found and/or which are reasonably capable of being found upon an external visual examination of the Vehicle at the time of Inspection. We cannot be held liable and are not responsible for any latent defects which are later discovered even when We can reasonably have been expected to see them during an Inspection conducted within the parameters of these terms and conditions. We cannot advise of defects if We cannot see them, or they are not apparent during the Inspection of the Vehicle concerned. In particular, please note that (without limiting the foregoing) Vehicles over 5 years old, those that have a high mileage and/or have been subjected to abnormal use may have latent defects. While such defects fall outside the scope of the Inspection and the Report is provided on this basis. Neither nor the Inspector will have any liability to You as a result of such defects.

8. Types of vehicles we don’t inspect include:

a) Disability controls and modifications

b) Commercial refrigeration units fitted to vehicles c) Body tipping equipment fitted to a vehicle

e) Tail lifts fitted to any vehicle.

9. Please note that used or new vehicles from an older construction year may contain serious internal, structural or mechanical defects and/or hidden corrosion, which will not be detectable from an external, visual examination. These vehicles may prove to be less reliable and may need more frequent repairs/servicing than recent new vehicles. While Our Inspectors take care to identify potential problems with the Vehicle from their external visual examination, You accept these and other disadvantages in owning a used or new vehicle from an older construction year and You accept that neither nor the Inspector will have any liability to You as a result of such defects.

10. If there is no documentary evidence of a recent engine timing belt (cam belt) replacement, We recommend that the belt of the Vehicle is checked and / or replaced before use.

11. If the Vehicle does not have a recent service history or it was not available to the Inspector at the time of the Inspection, then We recommend that a service in accordance with the Vehicle manufacturer’s specifications be undertaken prior to use. This may highlight other defects, giving rise to repairs, which were not apparent from the external visual examination undertaken by the Inspector.

12. Please note that the life expectancy of an exhaust or clutch system is uncertain and difficult to predict. Without prejudice to clauses 1, 3 and 5 above, the fact that such items have not been identified as faulty on the Report does not and should not be taken to imply that such systems will have a continuing life expectancy from the time of Our check.
