Standard Warranty Details

Subject to the limitations below, CARS4PARTS, INC., dba Glendale Auto Wrecking and Auto Parts (herein referred to as seller), expressly warrants all parts, as of January 1, 2013, for six (6) months, or term as noted on invoice, to the original purchaser with stipulations noted below. All warranty claims must be accompanied with the original receipt. The warranty provides for an exchange of the part with another part unless exchange or repair is not available. If replacement part is unavailable, a full parts credit will be provided. Warranty period starts from date of purchase.   Claims for adjustment or return due to defective or improper parts must be made in person and/or in writing within the warranty period. It is the responsibility of the buyer to return parts to seller, at buyers’ expense, for inspection of defect or improper part. The customer must install all parts in accordance with the original manufacturer’s installation instruction.  If the buyer purchases a replacement part prior to contacting the seller for any potential warranty issues, the most you will potentially receive is a parts credit for the part.  There will be no refunds available.

Parts have an exchange warranty for part or parts credit only, no cash refunds, unless noted on invoice. Warranty period starts from date on invoice. All parts being returned are subject to acceptance by seller and are subject to a 25% handling and restocking charge, if accepted.  All parts must have sellers’ identification on item for any warranty or exchange.  Body sections that have been cut off to order are not returnable. Deposits for special order parts or parts shipped in for customer are non-refundable.  No deposits will be returned after 30 days.  Not responsible for any item left after 30 days.  Items left after 30 days will be restocked and resold at Sellers’ discretion.  The parts must be in the same condition as when sold upon return. It is agreed that the sole determiner of condition for return is the Seller. Buyer agrees to any inspection or method of inspection dictated by Seller and agrees Seller has the right not to accept returned used merchandise if in Seller’s discretion, Seller believes condition of used merchandise has changed from date of sale.

Buyer affirms that before entering into this agreement, Seller requested that buyer examine the parts or merchandise, to ascertain whether there were defects therein, that Seller afforded to buyer an adequate opportunity to make such examination before buyer entered into this agreement and that buyer has examined the goods as fully as buyer desires for the purpose of determining whether there are defects or safety hazards. Seller states that it in no way guarantees or warrants used merchandise for apparent or non-apparent safety hazards and affirmatively states that used parts or merchandise sold may have safety hazards, and it is the responsibility of the buyer to inspect for actual or latent safety hazards or hire an expert to so inspect.  Exact mileage or remaining useful life of a used part is unknown.  Any mileage quoted is an estimate and not part of our warranty unless specifically put in writing on invoice.

All parts are sold with an exchange part required, unless stated otherwise on invoice. Exchange parts must be available at the time of purchase, or a core charge may be applied. The core charge will be refunded if the exchange parts are returned within 30 days and are similar kind to parts sold. Core exchanges become the property of seller upon acceptance.  Disposition and utilization of core exchange will be at the discretion of seller.  It is the customers’ sole responsibility to insure that any items needed by customer are removed from core exchange, by customer, prior to releasing to seller.  Warranty will be voided if exchanged part is not returned within 30 days.
