Core Returns Policy

We offer a core return program for remanufactured products in order to continue providing remanufactured components. If you have purchased a product that is eligible for our core return program, you can receive a full refund of the core price by returning the core to us.

To be eligible for a core return, the core must meet the following requirements:

  • The core must be the same part number or a supersession of the one purchased.
  • The core must be complete and in rebuildable condition.
  • The core must not be disassembled or modified in any way.

To initiate a core return, please contact us at [email protected] within 30 days of receiving the product. We will provide you with further instructions on how to properly package and ship the core back to us.

We will inspect the returned core to ensure that it meets the requirements listed above. If the core is accepted, we will process the core return within 7 business days and issue a partial refund to the original payment method used for the purchase. The amount of the refund will be determined by the condition of the returned core and will be based on the core return price listed on the product page.

If the core is not accepted, we will notify you and provide the reason for the rejection. In this case, the core will be returned to you.

Please note that shipping costs for returning the core are the responsibility of the customer. We recommend using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance, as we cannot be responsible for lost or damaged cores.
