Core Charges

What is a core?

When a vehicle is repaired, the old or failed part that was replaced is called a core. These cores are then remanufactured (recycled) by companies to original equipment specifications. Remanufacturing is the process of taking used parts, completely disassembling and thoroughly cleaning them,replacing the faulty and/or worn components with original quality components, and restoring them to their original function.The testing and procedures are the same as the original equipment manufacturers.

How do I get the core deposit back?

You can also send your core back to AutoParts.Repair's Fulfillment Center along with your Product and Core Return Form (reverse side of your shipping invoice) to receive your core refund. Returning the core allows parts to be remanufactured / recycled. Bringing back your core helps save our environment by keeping approximately 54,000 tons of cores out of landfills annually!
