NMC Cat Parts Return Policy
Parts or merchandise purchased from one of NMC’s facilities that are returned for credit will be subject to the following policy. The following criteria will be used to determine if credit will be allowed and how much, if any, restocking fee will apply. The original supplier’s return goods policy will have the greatest impact on our decisions concerning parts returnability.
Credit will be issued for new parts in resalable condition as follows:
- Stock parts, (Returnable or Non-Returnable) returned within 90 days of purchase will receive full credit.
- Stock parts, (Returnable or Non-Returnable) returned 91 to 365 days from date of purchase will be subject to a 10% restocking charge.
- Stock parts, (Returnable or Non-Returnable) OVER 365 days from date of purchase are not eligible for credit.
- Non-stock (Returnable) parts which are returned to us within 365 days will be subject to a 15% restocking charge.
- Non-stock (Returnable) parts which are returned to us beyond 365 days are not eligible for credit.
- Non-Stock (Non-Returnable) parts returned are not eligible for credit.
- Reman core charges must be returned within 6 months of purchase after which the entitlement will be lost, and no credit given.
- Freight charges are not refundable unless they are incurred due to an error on the part of Nebraska Machinery Company
These fees can be amended with management approval when justified. Parts receiving no credit should be removed from the credit, set aside, and held for not less than 30 days after notification of our customer concerning disposition. After this period of time the disposition of these parts will be at our discretion.
Credits will NOT be issued for new non-stock (non-returnable) * parts as follows:
Some parts are not returnable to NMC. These parts can deteriorate with age, be internally damaged with no external evidence of damage, or are easily contaminated which renders them useless. Listed below are some of the more common items.
