Our prices are inclusive of packaging cost and preparation. Where large parts are being specially provided via a third party working on behalf of Vintage MG Parts then there may be a separate postal charge and the customer will be advised accordingly.
Method of Posting / Carriage – Vintage MG Parts endeavour to select what they consider to be the most appropriate method of courier / postal service. This will predominantly be chosen on reliability / service track record combined with cost effectiveness. Customers can specify their own preferred transportation service or can arrange for goods to be collected either in person or, by their own chosen service provider.
In addition to the above, Vintage MG Parts will always endeavour to keep customer postage costs to a minimum through selecting appropriate packaging materials in order to keep volumetric weights to a minimum whilst having equal regard to protection of parts for safe transit.
Vintage MG Parts retain proof of postage on all goods despatched. Parts will usually be despatched with a standard insurance cover rate and we will generally advise if we think insurance provision should be increased for the consignment. Customers not wishing to pay enhanced insurance premium to adequately cover the value of an item can do so at their own risk of the item failing to arrive or being damaged in transit.
Limitations for Guarantee on Parts Being Supplied and Advice Being Given – If Vintage MG Parts have despatched goods which it is later accepts are faulty, then provided this is brought to its attention within 28 days, the company will, at its our option, fully refund the cost of the part in question, or replace the item once it has been returned and in the same condition as sold. Refund / replacement is at the company’s discretion.
Whilst Vintage MG Parts always endeavour to offer parts which are fully fit for purpose, it is the responsibility of the customer / fitter to ensure that supplied parts are inspected and, correctly installed. In the event that a supplied part may have been proved to be defective from source, the extent this company’s liability will only extend to the replacement / refund of the part and with no liability to Vintage MG Parts for consequential loss of any nature elsewhere.
Returns Policy – Vintage MG Parts will accept return of non-defective parts (with the exception of Chromium plated components) providing it is notified within 28 days of the goods having been received although reserves the right to retain a handling charge.

All chromium parts are always carefully inspected before being sent out to customers. However we will not always refund on return of such parts as experience has proved that these are invariably returned in a lesser standard of condition compared to when despatched by us. We will be happy to discuss on an item by item basis for such parts to be returned.
Special Note on Cast Engine Components – Whilst Vintage MG Parts take great care in trying to ensure that our cast products are free from casting sand deposits and swarf, the onus ultimately rests with the customer / fitter to certify to themselves that such parts are suitably clean for use.
