Core Policy

Title: What Is a Core Valve in Remanufactured Automotive Parts?

  1. Definition: A core valve is an original manufactured automotive part that has already served its purpose in a vehicle. Instead of being discarded, it gets a second life through the remanufacturing process.

  2. Recycling and Reuse: When a part becomes worn or damaged, it is removed from the vehicle and designated as the “core.” This core is then sent to specialized facilities where it undergoes rigorous restoration.

  3. Remanufacturing Process: During remanufacturing, the core valve is meticulously disassembled, cleaned, inspected, and rebuilt. Skilled technicians follow specific technical specifications to ensure its functionality matches or exceeds that of the original part.

  4. Quality Assurance: Remanufactured core valves undergo rigorous testing to verify their performance, durability, and reliability. They are restored to a like-new condition, making them a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative.

  5. Environmental Impact: By embracing core valves and remanufacturing, we contribute to sustainable practices by reducing waste and conserving resources.

The core value will be credited back to you contingent on the return of the original item. You must return your core item inside the box the replacement part was received. Any oils or fluids MUST be drained from the part! The core's condition must be deemed "complete with 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.
