Core Charges

Powder coated cores will no longer be accepted! Due to the additional time and expense it takes to remove the powder coating, BDE will no longer accept cores that have been powder coated. In addition, painted plenums will not be accepted.

Core charges will be refunded if good usable cores, as defined below, are received within 60 days from purchase. All cores must include a Core Credit Return sheet filled out completely.

To avoid paying a core charge, BDE will accept cores in advance of purchase - Under no circumstances will BDE ship products prior to receiving either the cores or a core charge payment.

The customer is responsible for proper packaging and all shipping expenses. BDE will not be responsible for cores lost or damaged during shipping.

Threaded bolt holes that are stripped will reduce core refund by $15.00 per hole.

Core Charges seem too high? Sorry, but this is to encourage customers to return suitable cores so we don't have to continuously search for them.
