If for any reason you wish to return a product purchased from VTP you must first obtain a returns authorisation form by contacting us at email@example.com or on 01653 669555.
As stated the request must be made prior to the item being returned and all fields of the returns authorisation form must be completed correctly and then attached to the goods. Failure to obtain a returns authorisation form will incur a 25% handling charge.
Whilst it is the responsibility of the customer to return an item to us, we are able to arrange uplift when requested to do so. If you would like to arrange the uplift of an item please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01653 669555. Please note that there will be a carriage charge for this service in order to cover our costs.
All stocking items which are returned within 14 days from receipt of goods in their original packaging and in a resalable condition will NOT incur a handling charge (minus the carriage cost). Goods returned outside the 14 day period will incur a 20% re-stocking fee.
Goods returned outside the 28 day period may not be eligible for return, please contact us before you return the goods where we may at our discretion accept the returned goods with a 20% re-stocking fee.
Non stocking or special order items which have been ordered especially from the manufacture may not be eligible for credit or exchange however this is dependent on the returns policy of the manufacturer. Please enquire before ordering a special order item as to what the returns procedure is for this item.
It is strongly advised that all items are returned using an insured and tracked postage service as VTP cannot be held responsible for the loss or damage of any returned goods.

All reconditioned parts (i.e. all part numbers with ‘R’ at the end) will incur a surcharge as the old unit is to be returned to us (VTP Ltd) in a serviceable condition.
If the item is deemed to be not in serviceable condition by VTP and / or the Manufacturer / Supplier, then the full surcharge amount will be applied to the relevant customer account.
Some new parts are subject to surcharge (including, but not exclusively, clutches, starter motors, alternators and air brake equipment). Please contact us before you make a purchase if you wish to confirm the part you require is subject to surcharge and / or to check the surcharge amount.
Due to the ever changing marketplace and supply contracts, VTP are unable to categorically state within the individual part details whether and at what point any particular part is subject to a surcharge, as such we reserve the right to apply the appropriate surcharge / terms to your account without specific notification.
All new parts come with a 12 months manufacturer warranty.
If a part fails within the 12 month period from the date it was supplied please contact us at email@example.com or on 01653 669555 to obtain a warranty returns form. All warranty items must be returned to us with the warranty form attached.
Any part returned to us as faulty will go through our standard returns procedure before being forwarded onto our supplier with a warranty claim. Our supplier will inspect and test the part and if they agree the part is faulty will issue us with a warranty credit note. Once this has been received by us we will immediately issue a credit note. Please note that this is not always a swift process as some of our suppliers are located outside of the UK.
All warranty issues are dealt with by Dave who can be contacted via email on Dave.firstname.lastname@example.org. Dave can advise you on the progress of your claim but cannot issue you with a credit note until our supplier has accepted the warranty claim. If our supplier rejects the claim Dave will make contact with you to inform you of their decision.
