For UPS shipments you can track the progress of the order using the shipment tracking number available on your order.

Q: How Do I Return A Core?

Core Return Policy

All Cores must be returned with the Core Return Form.

A core charge is a refundable deposit for the value of a re-buildable part. On many DHD products, we need to charge a core charge at the time of the sale. All cores must be returned to DHD and have a core return sheet properly filled out. The customer is responsible for all return shipping charges. Please ship all cores to the address found on the Core Return Form. Upon receipt of the core, DHD will determine the condition of the core and refund

  • All cores must be the same model as the original item that was purchased.
  • It is the customer’s responsibility to properly package their core to ensure it arrives safely.
