Defects in or damage to parts of the Vehicles do not entitle the Customer to reject a Vehicle.  The Client is a professional client and agrees to carefully inspect the Vehicles upon delivery or assign inspection to a third party with the technical knowledge required to conduct inspection. MYWAYPRO cannot be held liable for visible damage or defects that were not detected by MYWAYPRO and the Client (or a third party collecting the Vehicles on its behalf) at the time the Vehicles were collected. If MYWAYPRO and the Client do not reach an agreement on the compensation of visible damage or defects found upon inspection, MYWAYPRO has the right to dissolve the agreement with the Client in writing.

7.8. The risk of loss, damage or depreciation of the vehicles shall pass to the Client at the earliest at the time of (i) collection of the vehicle by the Client or (ii) delivery of the vehicle to the destination indicated by the Client.

8.4. MYWAYPRO shall send the car documents to the VAT registration country of the Client after reception and validation of the delivery evidence and after receipt in full of the increased Purchase Price.

8.5. MYWAYPRO will send the required documents and certificates by post after MYWAYPRO has received the signed collection documents (or, if applicable, a CMR waybill) from the Client. The Client will verify that he has received all necessary (Vehicle) documents. If the subsequent sale of the Vehicles by the Client requires legal approval or the express consent of the manufacturer in the country where the Client sells or wishes to sell the Vehicles, the Client shall be solely responsible for obtaining such approval or consent. Permission to market a Vehicle purchased from MYWAYPRO in a particular country is not implied or presumed. MYWAYPRO shall provide an edited copy of its Vehicle Supplier's invoice to the Client if ordered to do so by a court or governmental authority.

(iii) commercial photographs of the interior and exterior of the Vehicle.

In the event MYWAYPRO issues such credit, this sum shall be the Client's sole remedy.

 

10.3. The validity of any warranty claim by the Client shall be contingent upon receipt by MYWAYPRO of timely notice of any alleged non-conformance of the Vehicle in accordance with clause 12.

 

10.4.
