Important Core Charge Information

What is a "Core Charge"?
On many of our items, we must charge a refundable "Core Charge" when we sell it. This generally includes items such as calipers, bearing assemblies, control arms, power steering components, etc.

Cores are re-buildable parts that can usually be redeemed for a portion of their original purchase price. An acceptable core is one that is not broken or so severely damaged beyond repair that it can no longer be repaired and rebuilt to proper working condition.

A "Core Charge" is a deposit for the value of the core that is paid at the time you make the purchase. The Core Charge is refundable after we receive and inspect your old re-buildable core. Any damages to the cores or excess wear may result in a deduction of core value.

To receive full core credit, the core you return must be the same model and part number as what was purchased. If you are unsure if your core will meet our core return policy, then please call our parts department at 800-237-9991 before you place your order.

Cores should be shipped back to us within 30 days of purchase in the original container that the new / rebuilt part was received in. The shipping cost for the return of the core is the responsibility of the customer. Core refunds are issued only to the original purchaser and are processed on a first come, first serve basis. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for all core refunds.

VBP occasionally purchases the following brake and steering cores:  Calipers (Delco, Generic and / or pre-sleeved), Power Steering Control Valves, Cylinders and PS gear boxes and pumps.  Call for current purchase prices.

Caliper Cores
Previously sleeved, damaged or non Delco¨ brand cores may not be acceptable and will not receive full core refunds. Previously sleeved calipers may however be accepted for partial core refunds only if the OD (outside diameter) of the sleeve does not exceed 1.995" for front calipers and 1.495" for rear calipers.

Special Handling of Customers Calipers: Keep the original look of your calipers while upgrading to N.C.R.S. Specifications. Only $20 per caliper will be added to your caliper of choice.
