to have agreed to, and be immediately bound by, the terms and conditions in this agreement
and in doing so, know that this creates valid and binding legal obligations:
2.1.1. upon Our receipt of Your acceptance to the V1 estimate and/or offering via email;
2.1.2. upon Your agreement to any updated variation(s) that may be sent from time to time;
2.1.3. upon the vehicle, parts or item delivery to Vintique Moto for the purposes of Us
You warrant that unless disclosed to Us in writing that:
2.2.1. You are the legal owner of the vehicle; and/or
2.2.2. You have the power and authority to enter into this agreement; and
2.2.3. You have obtained all necessary authorisations to allow You to enter into this agreement
and authorise work on the vehicle; and
2.2.4. that You have sufficient means to meet all the costs of the work on the vehicle when

2.3. We request you to maintain Your insurance cover on the vehicle whilst it is with Us for work or storage and to update Your insurance provider that Your vehicle is undergoing restoration work, or is with Us for storage.
3.1. All information provided to you in Our estimates is based on the years of knowledge and
experience We have. We may rely on information which you have given Us when providing an estimate without independently verifying it. Every project is different and it is not always possible to foresee its outcome. In Our experience it can be challenging to see everything behind the paint, or indeed, hiding within a panel, We do Our best to highlight potential grey areas. All costs outlined in the estimate may vary as the project progresses.
3.2. We will keep you up to date with any changes or additional work as much as possible. You may wish to allocate a level of financial contingency that you feel comfortable with for Your project.
3.3. All estimates are exclusive of GST, unless indicated, and any items purchased may have additional costs including (but not limited to) GST, shipping, customs, and foreign currency conversion charges applied.

We ask that you advise Us in writing at Your earliest awareness of any timelines or budget constraints that You have or are working towards. We have no liability for any loss of damage arising as a result of a delayed check-in date.
3.6. Checking into the workshop will be scheduled. Whilst We undertake to work hard to keep to Our proposed check-in dates, some of the existing projects can have unexpected additional requests which can add unforeseen time to Your original check-in dates. Every client who is in the workshop is afforded time to consider updated estimates and also to request additional works as their project progresses. This can cause unexpected delays in the scheduling. Once Your vehicle is in the workshop, these same principles will apply to You. We have no liability for any loss of damage arising as a result of a delayed check-in date. We appreciate Your understanding.
4.1. Upon delivery of the vehicle to Our workshop We will conduct, as the current condition of the
vehicle allows, a full test of functioning electrics and mechanics at Your cost. Notes will be taken of what does and does not work and it will be logged with Your project and communicated with You. Vintique Moto is not liable for any electrics, parts or mechanical issues that were pre-existing to the delivery to Your workshop or that develop independently of work which We are completing on the vehicle.
4.2. We recommend that you keep Your vehicle’s licence and registration current, or placed on hold, whilst work is being undertaken with Us. If a vehicle
has a lapsed registration, it may need to go through additional compliance steps to get back on the road.
4.3. Please be aware that there are other projects in the workshop and as such We cannot work on Your vehicle full time, end to end on Your project without prior discussion. Some of Our processes require Your vehicle to sit and hold either as part of a technical restoration process, paperwork, or as We progress other projects within the workshop. Whilst We work hard to keep to Our discussed schedules, some of Our work is unknown at the time of original and updated estimates, and as a result timing can be fluid. This may result in some changes in dates for Your project. We have no liability for any loss of damage arising as a result of such delays.
5.1. All Clients must remain in regular communication with Vintique Moto so that any questions,
unexpected issues and/or ideas can be discussed, approved or declined.
5.2. If for any reason communication with Our team stops without warning, all work on that project will stop until satisfactory communication has resumed.
5.3. Unless prearranged with Our team, if (without prior arrangement) You do not get back in communication with Us for a period of more than 30 days, all work will stop and the vehicle will be moved onto Our workshop storage plan with associated fees as per section 18.5 from the date of Our last recorded communication from you.
6.1. Due to the volume of work that is managed within Vintique Moto, all meetings with Our team
must be scheduled by appointment and We request as much notice as possible to work in with workshop schedules.
7.1. Unless discussed and prearranged with Us, any project that has seen delays in waiting for owner
sourced parts or, approval for further work or, is otherwise delayed wholly or in part by You more than 30 days then We have the right to stop work and may move the vehicle onto Our workshop storage plan with associated fees as per section 18.5.

incorrect or does not meet your expectation, please contact our management team to discuss your concerns.
9.2. If You are concerned with any invoice in part or in whole, you have 3 calendar days following the date You received the invoice to raise Your concerns in writing with Our management team. Acceptance of the work detailed in each invoice is acknowledged by its payment.

10.1. Any and all media created by Vintique Moto will remain the rights of Vintique Moto and can be
used by Us for the purpose of advertising on all platforms, printed and digital.
10.2. You will be issued with a project gallery of Your vehicle’s project via SMS. This provides a photographic reference of all parts and work undertaken on Your vehicle.
10.3. Selected images may need to be shared with certifiers to verify work where required.
11.1. All vehicles that are planned to have any paint work undertaken - either a full body repaint, exterior only, or part thereof; will need to have the existing colour documented at the disassembly phase of the project - even if a new colour is being chosen. We do this to ensure You have the existing paint on record. This will be obtained via paint scanning tools to identify the closest match in the paint system, or as a code supplied from You (if known), from manufacturer plates or VIN references on the vehicle. Upon scanning the paint, three test cards will be sprayed out at Your cost and documented against existing paint to ensure an accurate record of existing paint is known prior to any paint removal.
11.2. Vehicle paint selection requires Your approval in writing before the final paint procedure can commence. Colour swatches, spray test cards and/or spray test panels will be used at Your cost to finalise the paint selection for approval. Where more than one colour is to be applied, a photoshop colour map will be provided to You at their cost, to be approved. Once colour, and a colour-map if applicable, is approved and painting begins, the selection cannot be changed. If a change is requested after approval of the colour or colour map, the paint selection process must start from the beginning at the additional cost to You.
11.3. Once paint colour is ordered for Your vehicle, the full amount of pre-mixed paint will be charged to Your account upon mixing of the paint. Any paint additives will be added as the paint process progresses and these will be itemised on Your invoices. Clients can request We store any excess paint for future work, or take this paint away with them upon project completion.

the work carried out. If You are acquiring works for the purposes of a trade or business, You acknowledge that the provisions of the Consumer Guarantees Act do not apply.

13.1.2. agreed by both Vintique Moto and The Client; and
13.1.3. addressed before the vehicle leaves the workshop.
13.2. We will only address items which We have worked on as part of the project and all work We have done which is not identified and documented at the Final Inspection Meeting as needing additional attention is deemed to be accepted by You. Once these agreed items noted at the
Final Inspection Meeting have been addressed, You will review them again, for final sign off. You acknowledge that by giving the final sign off and taking the vehicle away from the workshop that You are satisfied with the work completed by Us.
