    • A Quote will lapse without notice 30 days after given.
    • All Quotes are based on rates and charges in effect at the date of the relevant Quote. Any increase in rates or charges shall result in an equivalent increase in the quoted price.
    • An estimate as to price or quantity is not binding on AWL.
    • All Quotes are expressed as exclusive of GST and GST will be payable by the Customer in addition to the amount payable pursuant to the Quote.

    • Without prejudice to any other rights and remedies AWL may have, if at any time the Customer is in breach of any obligation (including those relating to payment), AWL may suspend or terminate the performance of Services to the Customer and any of AWL’s other obligations to the Customer. AWL will not be liable to the Customer for any loss or damage the Customer suffers because AWL exercised its rights under this clause.
