Contract of Sale
No “Contract” for the supply of Goods and/or Services will come into existence between you and motorparts.ie until we accept your order (however given) by issuing you with an email confirming that your order has been dispatched, or start performing the Services (whichever is the earlier). We will deem acceptance complete and communicated effectively on motorparts.ie sending the email to you whether or not you receive or read that email.
Each order by you to us will be deemed to be an offer by you to purchase Goods and/or Services subject to these terms. Each order placed by you to us will constitute a separate contract.
Core price charges
Some parts (i.e. alternators, starters, steering racks) require the return of the old / failed part that is being replaced. This is called a core. These cores are then returned for remanufacturing whereby the parts are completely disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and all faulty and wearing components replaced with new original quality components.
A core charge is designed to allow the cost price of the parts to be reduced for the customer by refunding the return of the old part. It also helps to ensure a percentage of vehicle components are recycled to aid the environment.
Where core exchange units are purchased, you will be invoiced with the sum referred to as a surcharge which is in respect of the old unit that you may return to us. If the old unit is returned within seven days from the delivery date a refund will be issued by us in respect of the surcharge, provided that the old unit is identical to the unit purchased and in the condition, in our sole discretion which enables it to be re-manufactured. Please contact us for an authorisation

It is the responsibility of you, the customer, to ensure the items ordered by you are correct for your application, prior to installation or painting, etc. All dimensions of products supplied must be noted and checked by you. Many of the products are of a technical nature and although our software is as advanced as possible, we cannot always guarantee that a specified part will be a correct application part particularly as models overlap when new models are launched.
Products & Specifications
All products supplied by us are subject to availability. We reserve the right in the event that we cannot supply you with the products you have ordered, to supply you with substitute products of equivalents or matching quality and equivalent specification.
