Returns & Refunds:
We hope that you are completely satisfied with your order from DCAutospares but appreciate that there may be a time that a part needs to be returned to us.
We will always try to supply the exact part that our customers require.
Due to the variations in make, model, design and years of manufacture we cannot give any guarantee that any parts are correct for the purpose required.
Our experienced parts sales team will require the vehicle registration number and/or part manufacturer number to ensure that you are ordering the correct part.
All sales are made on a strict understanding that the customer is responsible for supplying the correct vehicle or part information.
If you need to return an item to us simply return the parts in their original condition within 30 days for a refund. We will issue a refund upon receipt and examination of the item.
Items must be returned, wherever possible, in their original packing or other suitably robust packing to prevent any damage along with a completed returns form.

-All goods must be inspected upon delivery before signing to ensure that the item has not been damaged during transit.
