The vast majority of products available at CarGear are returnable. To initiate a return, you must request a Return Authorization Number (RA#) within 30 days of receipt of the product.
All items must have an RA# and be received in a new, unused and ready-to-sell condition (including all original packaging, parts, and paperwork) to receive a refund, excluding any shipping costs.
All electronic products, such as navigation units and engine programmers, require a 15% restocking fee and are subject to inspection before a credit is issued.
CarGear does not accept returns on used items, custom-painted products or items shipped via truck freight.
International orders cannot be returned or exchanged unless the item is defective or in the case of an error on our part.
CarGear will not reimburse labor charges or installation fees under any circumstances. Nor will CarGear reimburse for any damages incurred during installation of product.
Orders placed using PayPal or Bill Me Later must pass an inspection before any credit will be issued.
All return items require a Return Authorization Number (RA#).
To obtain an RA#, send a detailed e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your Name, Order#, Item# and the issue of the return. You can also call and speak to a representative at (626) 968-3200.
We'll call you or email you within 24-48 hours (allow additional time for weekends and holidays) with an RA#.
Shipments received without a valid RA# clearly posted on the outside of the box will be charged a 15% restocking fee.
CarGear is not responsible for items returned without proper return information (customer's name, address and RA#) on or in the box.
If an item arrives in an unacceptable condition as a result of a manufacturer defect, we will send you a pre-paid return shipping label.
To get a shipping label and a valid RA#, see our full return procedure above. Once you've received the label and the RA#, ship the defective item as instructed by your customer care specialist. Once we've confirmed the package is in transit we'll ship you a replacement or credit your account.
CarGear does not charge a restocking fee for returning most items. However, for some items, a restocking fee applies.
A 15% restocking fee applies to the following:
- Shipments returned without a proper Return Authorization Number (RA#) clearly posted on the box
- Orders placed for the incorrect model year of your vehicle
Because manufacturers are constantly changing vehicle designs, we do not guarantee an older part will fit a newer vehicle and vice versa. Ordering a product not specifically designed for your vehicle (for example, a 2006 model car cover ordered for a 2007 vehicle) is done at your own risk and will incur a restocking fee if returned.
All returned item(s) will be inspected upon receipt and must meet the following criteria for a credit:
- The item(s) must be returned in a new condition
All items returned for a refund or exchange must be in a new and ready-to-sell condition. This includes all installation hardware, instructions, packaging and paperwork.
- The returned package must be clearly labeled with a proper Return Authorization Number (RA#)
Items returned without an RA# clearly displayed on the box will be charged a 15% restocking fee. For more information on how to obtain an RA# please see above
The original credit card used to place the order will be credited for the purchase price of the item and any applicable sales tax, excluding all shipping costs.
We'll send an email confirming receipt of your return and your credit. Please allow an additional 5-7 business day for your bank to process the credit to your account.
Items to be replaced must meet the same conditions as items returned to Cargear for a refund. Non-defective items returned for exchange must be in a new and ready-to-sell condition with all original packaging, paperwork and parts included. Defective items must also be returned with the same items included in the original order.
If you request a replacement, we will ship your new item after we receive and process your return. Please allow 5-10 business days to process your return once it has been received. A restocking fee may apply to certain products.
If you need a replacement item right away, we suggest placing a new order on our website, or email us at email@example.com or call us at 800-874-8888 for expedited ordering. Express shipping charges may apply for rush orders.
Shipments without a proper Return Authorization Number (RA#) will be charged a 15% restocking fee. Please see above on how to obtain an RA#.
