Wrongly ordered parts or parts no longer required cannot be returned after 7 days from the date of the invoice. Parts that have been altered or damaged are not acceptable for return. The sole determiner of condition for return is the Seller. The Buyer agrees to any method of inspection determined by the Seller, and agrees that the Seller has the right not to accept returned merchandise if in the Seller’s opinion the condition of the merchandise has changed from the date of sale.

All merchandise must be inspected by the Buyer for defects or safety hazards. The Seller states that it in no way guarantees or warrants used merchandise for apparent or non-apparent safety hazards, and it is the sole responsibility of the Buyer to inspect for any safety hazards or hire an expert to so inspect.
The Buyer affirms that before they make an purchase, that the Seller requests that the buyer examines the parts or merchandise to ascertain whether there are any defects within. The Seller will afford the Buyer an adequate opportunity to make such an examination before they make the purchase, so the Buyer can determine if there are any defects.
