What is a Core Charge? A “Core Charge” is similar to the deposit you might pay for a can or bottle of soda. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a can of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty can. Many automotive parts have a Core Charge, or Core Price, that works the same way as a soda can deposit. Here’s how the Core Charge 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 rebuildable old part is returned to us, the charge is refunded to you *cores that are disassembled, missing parts, or that have broken non serviceable internal components will be assessed a deduction*
To receive your Core Charge refund, you can do either of the following:
Bring the part to any Transmission Specialties Parts store along with your receipt or packing slip
Ship the part back to Transmission Specialties Auto Parts following the directions on your packing slip
Please see our Returns policy for more information on returning a core item.
