We always do our best to make sure that everything is available, up-to-date and with a clear description, so that you know what you’re buying. We strive to make sure that packages are sealed up properly and handled with care, so that you receive them in perfect condition. But we cannot guarantee all of these 100% of the time. For us, happy customers are loyal customers and despite our best efforts, returns may be necessary.
Here’s how it works, in case you need to return an item to us.

If somehow your item is damaged, then you need to contact us straight away (yes, the form again), and we’ll arrange for the item to be returned to our premises.

The cost of all postage and packaging is payable by you unless stated or agreed with us.
P&P not refundable if the item is returned to us opened. Please ensure the item is unopened and in a resalable condition.
When returning an item, use the original packaging and make sure the outer packaging is securely sealed. Once received, we will provide a refund or exchange.
Please be advised that Handling Charges apply on all returned items (unless stated otherwise by motorparts.ie).
Needless to say, there are a number of associated costs with every transaction through Motorparts.ie.
Therefore, costs, including outward postage and packaging, will be deducted from refund amounts.
“Special Order” means any goods that are not held in stock by us (a non-stock item) and are therefore ordered and/or manufactured specifically as per your request.
Please note the following items will not be accepted for return:
* Damaged packaging and opened blister packs.
* Special Orders.
* Correctly supplied vehicle electronic components (Sensors, EGR Valves, Mass Airflow Meters, Ignition Coils, Fuel Pumps etc).
* Timing Belts.
It is imperative that the Goods we supply are new and unused. Electronic components when misdiagnosed can easily be damaged and therefore we cannot accept their return. Similarly, open Timing Belts cannot be verified as unused, therefore we cannot accept them back once the package is opened.

Once you have received your post label, wrap up the item that is being returned safely, and place the Returns Post Label on the packaging, Drop the item into any An Post and they'll do the rest. Easy!
