Q: How long until I get my parts?

In stock items will usually be received within 1-7 business days. Out of stock or special order parts may take 1-2 weeks depending on availability. Contact us to see availability prior to purchase to ensure prompt delivery. Free shipping is economy ground at the discretion of Norcal Diesel Performance and is subject to change without notice. Free shipping not available for truck freight items or from select manufacturers that drop ship from their warehouses. I.e. bulky items such as engines, transmissions and fuel tanks.

Q: What if my package shows up damaged or missing parts?

Contact us immediately. It is the shippers responsibility to ensure your package gets to you undamaged and on time. If a package is lost or damaged we must file a claim with the shipper. Often the shipper attempts to locate a lost package and launches an investigation which could take several business days. If the part is found it will be redirected and delivered. If the part is lost or deemed damaged, the shipper will issue a credit and we will send out another part. 

Q: What if I get the wrong parts?

We strive to do our very best to get things right every time however if you receive parts that are incorrect or not what you ordered give us a call or e-mail us as soon as possible.

We recommend you inspect your parts upon arrival for shipping damage, missing parts or incorrect parts in order to prevent delays during installation.

If you have a concern, we'll look into it and see what happened and get the right parts coming as soon as possible.

You may be required to send back the incorrect parts prior to shipment of the new parts subject to management discretion. This is usually required if products are a high cost part, just to keep the honest people honest.

Please note we do not cover any labor cost associated with incorrect, damaged or missing parts.
