Core Tips

  • It is recommended to charge customers (both counter and shop) for cores and then credit them when core is returned.
  • Be sure to relieve your DMS count of dirty cores when returning to supplier.
  • We use a utility cart placed near counter to temporarily store cores and then transfer them to a permanent holding area for core pickup.
  • We hold the box, write the ro and tech inside the flap. Nothing like having a visual reminder.  If the core doesn't come back I'll bill the tech. I would have to assume he sold it to a scrap guy (and the scrap guy doesn't pay as much as I charge!) My guys are pretty good about returning cores.... source Bruce Buick dealersedge forum
  • We hold the box with the techs name on it. I think one of the easiest ways to loose cores is when your warehouse person scraps warranty parts, so I have printed out some big yellow labels with core printed on it and we stick it on the box where it can't be missed so the part doesn't get accidentally scrapped. source TROUT dealersedge forum
  • We charge out the part number {core} on the ro with a cost and sale price of $1000.00 until the core comes back. source bigGman dealersedge forum
  • POLICY HERE IS TO HAVE CORE CHARGE ON RO, CORE CHARGE STAYS ON RO UNTIL STAMPED OFF AND SIGNED BY PARTS COUNTERMAN JUST LIKE WARRANTY source MAXIMUM dealersedge forum
