CORE CHARGES apply to purchases of REMANUFACTURED items.
A remanufactured item saves you the "core" cost by allowing you to return the worn item which has residual value to the original equipment manufacturer. A "core" deposit is a value placed on the rebuildable component (your used part). You are required to make a deposit on this item which will be credited back to you contingent on the return of your existing worn part. You must return your worn part inside the box and packing materials in which the replacement part was received. Items containing oil or fluid MUST be drained! The core must be in a condition which is deemed "normal wear and tear."
The cost of freight to return the core is the responsibility of the customer.
Core return credits are subject to our review and acceptance of the condition of the core item returned to us.
Core Return Directions and Guidelines
Cores with cracked housings, broken shafts, or broken major components will not be accepted for credit. Cores must exhibit normal wear and tear conditions.
Cores must be drained of internal fluids. This is to reduce risk of spills which could become an environmental hazard during shipping. Failure to drain oil from the core will result in a $100 handling charge upon receipt at our warehouse.
Cores should be "reasonably" cleaned of exterior oil, grease, and dirt.
Cores should be wrapped in plastic when repacked for shipment. A garbage bag is perfect for this requirement. Wrapping your core helps to keep residual fluids from leaking from the package during shipment.
Repack your core inside the box the replacement part was received in. It is extremely important that the core be returned inside its original box for identification purposes.
Pack some paper or scrap cardboard inside the box to help keep the item from shifting during shipping transportation.
YOU MUST enclose the packing list that was emailed to you inside the box before securing it so that your return can be identified properly when received at our warehouse. This assures that we receive proper credit for your return.
Securely tape your package closed.
PLEASE mark the outside of your box clearly and in large lettering with the words "CORE RETURN". This helps make sure that your package remains identified within the warehouse as a core.
