If any of the above conditions exist a partial core credit may be offered after consultation and/or inspection by Pavtek

Shipping Preparation

  • Do not ship your block to us before we advise you to. Any unauthorized freight may be refused
  • Customer is responsible for shipping the block back to our facility and is responsible to pay the freight
  • Mains must be attached to the block in their correct locations
  • If you the customer can not arrange the freight of your core to us, we will be able to organise this for you at your expense.


Core Exchange Refund
