Tool Rental Deposit Policy
What is a tool deposit? A tool deposit is an amount of money put down at the time of tool rental to ensure the return of the tool kit and adherence to our rental policies, agreement, and procedures.
How does a tool rental work? When you purchase one of our timing belt kits or valve cover gasket kits, you can then rent a corresponding tool kit. Tool rental kits can be in your possession for a total of 7 days. We add appropriate transit time to your 7 day rental. When you receive your package your invoice and the tool kit itself will have the specified date that your tool rental kit is required back (received in our facility).
Our tool rental policies are as follows:
- Timing belt tool rental kits are not available without the purchase of an appropriate BLAU® Timing Belt Kit.
- Cam chain tensioner tool rentals are not available without the purchase of an appropriate BLAU® Valve Cover Gasket Kit.
- Tool rental kits are not available for rental outside of the contiguous 48 US states.
- Any orders received that fall outside of the above will not be processed.
- Timing belt kits or valve cover gasket kits purchased simply to rent our tool kits are not returnable.
- Tool rental kit requests must be made within 90 days of timing belt kit or valve cover gasket kit purchase.
How do I get my tool deposit back? Acceptance and use of tool rental kits constitutes the customer's agreement to these conditions. To receive full credit of your tool rental deposit you agree to adhere to the following rental agreement and procedures:
A good faith tool deposit is charged at time of rental. The deposit amount may not be the same as the actual replacement cost of tools. If you fail to return the tool kit by the date on your invoice your credit card will be charged the full replacement cost of the tools and any late fees. If you do not agree, notify us to return the kit unopened within 5 business days.
Tool rental kits must be returned (received in our facility) by the specified date found on your 'Invoice/Sales Order'. The tool kit box itself has a small return authorization label affixed to it with this date! After this specified date, a late charge of $10.00/day will be deducted from the deposit.
The tool kits are closely inspected when packaged and include a packing checklist. Always read the checklist included with each kit BEFORE using to verify the kit is complete! Damages or shortages must be reported within 24 hours.
For a full refund of your deposit the tool kit must be returned complete, in good condition, not damaged, or altered in any way, and must be received in our facility by the specified date on your invoice and tool kit. If any tools are missing or returned damaged a replacement cost or damage charge will be deducted from the deposit.
The buyer is responsible for safely returning a package to us. We strongly recommend INSURING your tool kit return for the full value of tool deposit! This will protect your investment in case of the need to file a claim and recover your deposit. If a tool kit is not insured and is lost or damaged in shipment back to us the deposit cannot be returned.

The determination of all warranty claims will be at the sole discretion Blauparts LLC.
All products in our online catalog or sold by Blauparts LLC are warranted to be free from defects from the manufacturers workmanship or material before installation on your vehicle. The entire risk as to quality and performance of such parts is with the buyer. Should such parts prove defective following their purchases, the buyer, and not the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer, assumes the entire cost of necessary servicing or repair. Any alteration, improper use or improper installation will void warranty. Warranty is limited, at our option, to the replacement, or credit of the defective merchandise. Blauparts LLC standard policy regarding 'Limitation of Liability' applies to the manufactures limited warranty and Blauparts LLC limited lifetime warranty and does not cover installation, labor charges, or any consequential or incidental damages. For specific details regarding the limitation of liability of this warranty see Limitation of Liability.
Closeout items are sold "AS IS" void from both the manufactures warranty and Blauparts LLC limited lifetime warranty consideration.
