It is recommended that all items be inspected by the purchaser (or the purchaser’s representative) prior to despatch.
As all transportation is the responsibility of the purchaser, the “Condition” is the condition of the item at the time of cataloging of the item. At all times during transportation and prior to a protective finished being applied to the item, the purchaser takes responsibility to keep the item out of the weather, to avoid its condition deteriorating.
Colour differences caused by reasons other than the natural colour of the timber can alter the condition grading.
