Unless otherwise noted, parts cost in contract / quote is accurate 'actual shelf price' as of time of quote, and client agrees to +/- 10% variance due to supplier rate fluctuations. A copy of invoice for all parts will be provided with final invoice for verification.
All invoices are due paid within 30 days of invoice. Invoice shall be provided within 7 days of completion of work. Emergency Service shall be invoiced immediately upon completion (before leaving the site), and shall be paid within 7 calendar days. These are the strictest and 'default' payment terms, and (while SC reserves the right to extend more comfortable terms to customers based upon its own discretion) the default terms are the only terms of contract unless otherwise stated in writing, where such statement shall be explicit with regard to what work the 'special' payment terms shall be applied.

For the duration of the Original Equipment Manufacturer part warranty, but not to exceed 24 months from the date of invoice, SC will provide labor to install / repair / replace parts, in conjunction with the above, at a reasonable fee (75% of the listed Scheduled Work labor rate at the time of service request).

However, should an agreement not be reached, the customer agrees that the above points are the only terms and conditions to which SC shall be bound.
