Q: What is a core charge?
A core charge is a deposit paid for your used part. You receive the deposit back when you return the used part and it is deemed a “good core”. The “good core” criteria varies by the type of part purchased. For more information on core criteria refer to the individual parts product page. Here’s how the Core Charge process works: • The part you are purchasing contains a component that is recyclable • The Core Charge deposit is charged at the time of purchase • When the recyclable component from your old part is returned to us, the charge is refunded to you
