Terms & Conditions


A 30% deposit is required to secure order and fix prices for shipping purposes. 

The balance (70%) is due for payment upon receipt of the copy Bill of Lading, i.e. when the goods are ready to leave 'port of departure'. 

Please note: 

  • The payment terms above are standard export procedures from Asia
  • We use our experience to obtain the best prices for you, from our suppliers, and with our low margin policy, which is designed to encourage repeat business
  • This is why our terms are based on the old fashioned principle of "payment is made when payment is due"

Minimum order quantities:

The competitive prices we offer will be subject to MOQ's.  We can, in some instances negotiate smaller quantities but this can result in higher prices.  

Stock holding:

STAR Construction Equipment (UK) has a warehousing facility in Shanghai and if required we can hold stock for you too.


Have your products branded with your company logo and/or to carry specific labels.  Branding will not only maintain your company profile, we have found it can also reduce pilferage.


Our prices are indicative due to variable shipping rates and based solely on product cost, internal transportation at cost, handling and inspection at cost, shipping at cost plus our low margin.  Prices include delivery to your choice of destination.

Delivery times:

These can be affected not only by the factory but also holidays and adverse weather conditions can also have an impact.  We keep our clients fully informed in this respect.  The delivery times shown on this website are indicative only.

VAT & import duties:

Our clients are responsible for the payment of VAT and import duties direct to Customs & Excise before the goods can be released from the port of arrival.  We can assist customers through our shipping agents requesting the costs applicable at the time of delivery.
