- Core Returns
Some parts may be rebuilt by the manufacturer and are sold on an exchange or ‘core’ basis, if this is the case you will be charged a ‘core’ charge. Core prices are included in the selling price of our parts on the web site and are itemized separately Alpha Whip Gear Auto Parts invoices and packing slips as ‘core price’. To receive ‘core credit’ the exchange merchandise (the old part you’re replacing the new part with) must be returned to Alpha Whip Gear Auto Parts so we are able to return it to the manufacturer for core credit. The old part must be returned in the original container your new product arrived in, it must include a copy of your original packing slip, and it must be in ‘re-buildable’ condition. The old part must be returned within 30 days in order for the core credit to be issued. Core charges most commonly apply to engines, transmissions, transaxles, alternators, brake shoes, controls, CV Axles, distributors, pumps, rack and pinion, smog pumps and starters. If you have questions concerning whether or not the part you are ordering has a ‘core price’ feel free to contact one of our service representatives and they will be able to tell you if one applies.
All handling and shipping fees for core returns are to be paid by the customer. Once your core has been verified to meet core standards and has been received by Alpha Whip Gear Auto Parts, credit will be issued against the original purchased core only. Cores may only be returned for credit within the first 30 days after the date your order was shipped. The shipment date as well as the address to return the core to (the ‘Ship From’ address) can be found on the packing slip included in the original shipment and/or on the shipping label outside of box. A copy of your packing slip must be included in the shipment of the returned core. Please do not submit a core return until you have shipped the part back to us. Any cores that do not meet packaging or core standards will not be eligible for credit and will be disposed of after customer notification. The customer will have the option of receiving back his original core only or authorize scraping and disposal of core after this notification. It will be the responsibility of the customer for any freight, disposal, and handling fees incurred by returning unacceptable cores, not to exceed overall core value.
