The services are subjected to a separate but optional contract between TWC and the customer. Where the customer contracts for the services, a delivery, handling and insurance fee (“the service fee”) plus any additional delivery costs (see delivery below) will be charged to the customer’s account. Costs for the services have been met by TWC on behalf of the customer and where applicable, will be charged to the customer’s account and included in the composite invoice price. When the services are provided to the customer, the services fee charged to the customer account will be $4.25 plus GST. The services fee and any other additional delivery costs are separate and distinct from the amount charged for the supply of goods (“the goods price”). The services fee is included in the wholesale price unless a separate arrangement has been agreed between the customer and TWC. Where the customer decides not to take up TWC’s offer to perform the services, the customer must give prior notice to TWC, so that arrangements can be made for reasonable access to be given for the customer to pick up good from the TWC’s warehouse or arrange for an alternative supplier to transport the goods. Where the customer elects not to acquire the services, the service fee will not be charged.

For metro customers: orders less than two (2) dozen will incur a picking and administration fee of $20.00 per order. For outer metro and regional customers: orders less than five (5) cases will incur an administration fee of $7.00 per case (minimum $21.00 charge).
