DAMAGED OR MISSING ITEMS DURING TRANSIT
Missing Items or Items damaged during shipping to the customer from VW Central must be reported within 3 calendar days of delivery. Be sure to thoroughly inspect all items as soon as they are delivered. Any damage reported after 3 calendar days will NOT be eligible for warranty or shipping damage claims. Be sure to keep any and all packing material with the box as it will be needed to properly conduct a shipping claim with the shipping courier. Please be sure to cooperate with the investigation and any questions that the carrier may have during the claim process.
Replacement part(s) will be re-shipped to you as soon as we are informed of an accepted claim by the shipping courier.
Courier Service Providers generally require up to eight business days from the time the claim is initiated. If the replacement part(s) are needed prior to this eight day claim review period, all such parts must be paid for up front by the Customer. If and when the claim is approved, VW Central Ltd will refund the full amount for the parts subject to such approved claim.
If you do not receive your package and the tracking information shows that the package has been delivered, you must notify us within 3 calendar days of the marked delivery date so that we can initiate a lost package tracer with the shipping carrier. Replacement products will not be sent until the shipping carrier completes the tracer request and grants permission for replacement product to be shipped. Depending on the shipping agent used, the required time frame can be up to eight (8) business days from the time the claim is started. Please note that this is a third-party shipping service provider policy and not of VW Central Pty Ltd. If replacement part(s) are needed prior to this wait time for claim approval all such parts must be paid for by the Customer up front. If and when the claim is approved we will refund the full amount for parts subject to such claim back to your original payment method. VW Central does not guarantee that any packages will be credited by the shipping carrier until this process is complete. VW Central will not provide refunds for any lost package under any circumstances unless proper insurance was requested for your order.
All Shipping Charges are non-refundable.
