What is a core charge?
Core charges are a deposit that is charged when an engine is purchased typically. This is in place so that the re-manufacturer (US) can offset the cost of getting another engine to rebuild if the customer does not return there old one to us. We have revolutionized the industry by being on of the first re-manufacturers to not require payment of the core charges up front. When you purchase an engine from powertrain products inc. You will see that there is a core charge but we waive the core charge for up to 30 days to allow you or your mechanic time to switch out the engine. When done you would simply email or call us here to have the arrangements made to pick up the core. We cover the return shipping cost,paperwork & arranging the truck; You would simply need to have yourself or mechanic at the location for p/u.
Are the engines complete?
Most of the engines we sell are known as complete long block engines. This is a common term in the industry & represents a re-manufactured engine containing the block with heads installed as well as gaskets & oil pump. In most cases external parts are cleaned & re-used. ex: oil pan, timing cover, valve covers, intake, starter, etc. There are many engines that we do stock now with the oil pan & timing cover on & ready to go. Just ask you sales representative how the engine for your vehicle is sold.
Are there shipping charges?
Shipping charges really depend on the area the product is being shipped too. We currently ship our engines nationwide with fees ranging from 150.00 & up to a business location. ( excluding new york city,long island & cape cod ). If it is being shipped to a residential address there is an additional cost of 100.00 & can be added to any tickets by searching the part number residential in the search function from any page. This service will provide you with residential delivery as well as a lift gate equipped trailer for delivery and pick up.
Shipping time depends on many factors. The first being if we have the product you need in stock. If it is in stock then it can typically ship by the next business day after your order is received. The other factor is how far it has to ship. This depends on your location. We typically can deliver to any location within 5 days. Many are next day & your sales representative can give you an estimate of delivery time. This is always an estimate as our products availability changes daily due to demand. Our sales representatives can give you an idea of shipping time on any item prior to placing your order.
