  2. You agree to provide us information regarding and access to the goods while we remain the owner.  You agree that we can always enter premises where the goods are located (or we believe them to be located) and take possession of and/or remove them while we remain the owner.
  3. If you wish to resell any goods before you become the owner, you may do so only if the sale is genuine and made in the ordinary course of your business. You must then promptly account to us for the proceeds of the sale, and hold the proceeds in trust for us until you do so.
  4. You acknowledge that these Terms of Supply create a security interest as defined in the Personal Property Securities Act 1999 in favour of us in any goods and any proceeds from, and existing or future rights in relation to, such goods and that we may at any time register a financing statement on the Personal Property Securities Register to protect our security interest in the goods.

  6. You will not change your name or other details without first notifying us in writing at least 14 days before such change takes effect.
  7. While we retain ownership of goods in your possession or under your control, you must properly store and secure the goods, and insure the goods for their full replacement value until the goods are sold pursuant to sub clause (d) above or consumed in the ordinary course of your business.

  1. We may, however, require you to pay an initial deposit at the time of ordering or prior to the goods being sent to you.
  2. The price of your order may be increased by the amount of any reasonable increase in the cost of supply of the product that is beyond the control of Marsden International (NZ) Ltd between the date of the Order Confirmation and the date of the delivery of the product. This may include but is not limited to increases in shipping costs.

  5. Nothing in this Clause affects Marsden’s other rights against you in these Terms of Supply or at law, and Marsden may at any time at its discretion withdraw any credit extended to you.


You must pay default interest on overdue payments, at our then current default interest rate calculated from the date payment is due until the date Marsden receives payment.

  1. We may review our default rate from time to time and we will advise you of any change on your monthly statement.
