DFW Instruments - Exchange Program
Exchange prices are quoted on the basis that the customer will return core(s) of the same part number as invoiced, in normal, repairable condition in compliance with any applicable F.A.R.'s. All prices and charges are in U.S. dollars, exclusive of any customs duties, taxes, shipping fees or special handling and are subject to change without notice. DFW reserves the option to reject any returned core units that are unacceptable.
An acceptable core is a unit of identical type and part number as the exchange unit provided by DFW, and must be in repairable condition. DFW reserves the right to refuse acceptance of any unit that has been subject to damage beyond normal wear and tear or inept repair attempts.
An unacceptable core is a unit that has been damaged from external causes such as fire, crash, submersion, cannibalization, inept repair, abnormal wear, etc. If abnormal damage is found, either at the time of exchange or later during overhaul, the exchange price will not be applicable. Instead, the customer will be invoiced on a time and material basis for the abnormal work actually performed, plus the cost of the exchange unit. If an exchange core is found to be Beyond Economical Repair, the customer will be invoiced for the core charge. If an acceptable core is received over thirty (30) days past the date of invoice, DFW reserves the right to credit the core charge less a 20% late fee and/or billed at a rate of $60.00 per day until received.
Late Core Returns
Exchange core units must be returned to DFW within 2 weeks (10 business days) from the shipping date of the exchange unit or late charges will be accrued until item is returned. If a core is not returned, DFW will invoice for an outright purchase at current market or replacement cost. An extended core return deadline will only be considered at the time of sale. If an acceptable core is received over thirty (30) days past the date of invoice, DFW reserves the right to credit the core charge less a 20% late fee and/or billed at a rate of $60.00 per day until received.
Exchange equipment will carry a six (6) month limited warranty for use in pleasure or Corporate Aircraft Operators and three (3) months limited warranty for use in Commercial Airlines or Flight Simulators. DFW's obligation under this warranty, however, shall be limited to workmanship on labor performed and replacement of any article completed at the time of repair / overhaul. Also, see Equipment Warranty Policy. Warranty will be denied if the units DFW seals have been broken and/or the unit has been tampered with.
