We ask that you include a copy of the original invoice and state “CORE” on the invoice with the returned core. Always have your purchase date and original invoice number ready when calling. Core return shipments are at the buyer’s expense. When we receive the core, and after it is found acceptable by our inspectors, we will issue a refund using the same method of payment for the initial sale. There is a 90 day time limit on core returns. No refunds after 90 days.
