Returns & Refunds
If you change your mind about an item that you’ve purchased from us or you’re not satisfied with it, you can return it. However, it must be returned in a resalable condition, with its original packaging included. Please inform us of any returns requests within seven working days of delivery.
We hope you’re satisfied with your purchase from Arnold Clark Autoparts, but we do understand that sometimes you might need to make an exchange or return. To return an item, please print out the returns form, fill it in and send it back with any returned items. Items can be returned either to your local branch or by post.
• If you return items to an Arnold Clark Autoparts branch, we can send it back to the Arnold Clark Autoparts e-commerce team free of charge. Please still print off and complete the returns form before bringing it, and your unwanted goods, into the branch. Please note, our branches are not able to issue a refund or exchange for goods that you receive by post.
• We will refund any postage charges where the return has been due to an error on our part. Otherwise you will need to meet the cost of postage unless otherwise agreed by Arnold Clark Autoparts. Please make sure the returns form is filled in and included in your returns package.
We aim to process returns within 48 hours of receiving them. We’ll email you once the return is complete. We suggest that you make a note of the shipping reference given when you sent the item back. This will allow you to track your parcel at every stage of delivery, including when we receive it. If it looks like we have received your return item, and you have not been contacted within 48 hours of delivery, please contact us.
We can only issue a refund after the goods have been returned to us. We aim to process all refunds within 48 hours of receiving returned items, providing that they are undamaged and in a sellable condition. All refunds will be made via your original payment method.
We will refund any postage charges where the return has been due to an error on our part. Otherwise, you will need to meet the cost of postage, unless specifically agreed by Arnold Clark Autoparts.

If there is a situation where you wish to exchange an item instead of having it refunded, please contact us and one of our specialist team will go through your options.
We’re really sorry if we’ve made a mistake with your refund. If this is the case, please contact us and we’ll aim to put things right as quickly as possible.
