Warranty & Terms of Sale

Return & Exchange Timeframes

  • No item is eligible for return once 30 days from the date of purchase have elapsed, unless an extended warranty has been purchased.
  • If the return is requested within 30 days, provided that the item is a returnable item, and we have a replacement item in stock, upon receipt of the item to be replaced, we will exchange the item at no additional cost to the purchaser. If the return is requested within 30 days and we do not have a replacement item, upon receipt of the returned item, a refund will be issued, provided that the item is a returnable item.
  • All returns must be accompanied by a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA). All returns or exchanges must be shipped back to Pacific Motors within 10 business days of receipt of RMA. Further details on obtaining an RMA are below.

Shipping Related Details

  • For items requiring a signature at the time of delivery, please inspect for damage prior to accepting the item. If the item is damaged, this information must be noted on the Carrier’s documentation prior to the documentation being signed. This signature effectively transfers liability for the item. If signed for as received in good condition, a claim cannot be brought against Pacific Motors. Please contact us immediately by phone or by email once damage is noticed. Failure to provide immediate notice voids all remedies available.
  • Shipping charges are not refundable under any circumstances, barring gross negligence on the part of the freight carrier resulting in damage to the item.
  • Return shipping charges are the responsibility of the purchaser, excepting extraordinary and uncommon situations of undisclosed damage or misrepresentation. Simple failure of a used part to function properly does not constitute an extraordinary circumstance.
  • While Pacific Motors puts each part through a rigorous, multiple-step process to ensure quality, the very nature of used parts contains an inherent risk. Simple failure of a used part to function properly does not constitute an extraordinary circumstance.
