Terms & Conditions
All Buyers Purchasing from www.MarylandSpeed.com agree to the following terms-
A Note From the Owner-
The below policies were crafted with one goal in mind - KEEPING PRICES LOW. Yes, some other places have no restocking fees, will take anything back for free, and do pretty much anything the customer asks regarding a return. They also charge 10-20% more for the same parts we sell. Our customers have told us they want low prices, and to do that, we have to run an efficient business that constantly creates savings to pass on to the customer.
Every year, the largest controllable losses/costs we have are related to damaged/used returns, the cost of shipping and processing returns, along with canceled special order parts. This is a large amount of money that many business recoup through higher prices. I refuse to do that. Instead of passing these costs on to all customers in the form of higher prices, I have chosen to have a strong policy that controls them, and passes these costs back to the customers who create them. If the below terms seem onerous, we make no apologies. Plain and simple, Our goal is to reward and keep money in the pockets of the 99% of our customers who will never use this policy. Thanks and we value your business!
While our website already offers great sale pricing, in many cases we may offer additional package or promotional discounts beyond the standard website sale price. We pride ourselves on having the best price, and want to give you the best deals possible. These discounts may be offered on the phone, or through the chat feature of the website as a coupon code. They also include package or combo deals listed on the website.
When we offer these additional package discounts, delivery time WILL be impacted in many cases. As we discount more, where and how we can source the parts for your order is impacted. For instance a 10% discount on a part can eliminate many of the suppliers we can source the part from on price alone. Or for another example, you may be offered a discount because we have a stock order coming in with that part and we got an extra discount. The order may not ship until that stock order gets here rather than being dropshipped as a one off from a wholesaler.
If you need the part by a certain time, PLEASE STOP THE PURCHASE PROCESS NOW and discuss it with the sales rep who is offering you the discount. It is the customers responsibility to communicate any time delivery time needs at the time of purchase as it impacts how much of a discount we can give. In order to keep prices low, we do not cancel orders, or accept non defective returns on orders with additional discounts beyond website sale price. While most orders ship in days or a few weeks, there are remote cases where parts are made to order, delayed, or come from overseas. It is VERY unusal, but some discounted orders can take 2-3 months or more. If this a concern, please tell us up front.
By accepting the discount, you agree to these terms along with our no cancelations policy

All other items purchased are subject to the below Return and Refund terms.
Credit Card Disputes/Chargeback Fraud
We work very hard to bring our customer’s the best price. As noted above, many lines, and discounted orders are not cancelable because of this. When you buy from us, and agree to these terms, it is a purchase contract. We do not go to the level we do to disclaim no cancelations, and that products take longer because we do not mean it. Occasionally, we have had customers decide to use the credit card dispute process to try and get out of this purchase contact. This IS CHARGEBACK FRAUD. It wastes an incredible amount of time and money, which we must pass on in higher prices. Because of that, we fight chargeback fraud very aggressively.
If you attempt chargeback fraud, we will
- Rebut the chargeback to the fullest extent possible, including arbitration (this is a 90 day process with money coming in and out your account)
- Once we win the dispute, we will ship your items.
- If we lose the dispute, that does not mean the purchase contract agreed to is void. We will employ outside collection and legal resources to still enforce this contract
- If you refuse a shipment, you are still liable for the purchase, and we will either pursue asking the credit card to make you pay for reshipment, or charge you a 25% restocking fee.
- If we agree to issue a refund/cancel a noncancelable order, and you use the chargeback process accelerate or force a faster refund, our offer to cancel will be rescinded, and we will fully enforce the no cancelations clause of the contract.
If The Item is Not Defective and You want to return it-
You may return any uninstalled product (except detailed above) for any reason within 21 days of receipt. Returning a product that is not defective will however result in a 25% restocking fee. This restocking fee covers the various costs associated with processing your order, manufacturer restocking fees we pay, and any discounted shipping we offer. Any shipping the customer paid is NOT refundable. Return shipping is customer’s responsibility. To provide our customers with the best price, and fastest service, we may ship your order from multiple warehouses. In the case of a return, you will be asked to return the items to the warehouses they shipped from, which may result in multiple return shipments.
To initiate a return, you must contact us via our email contact us form to request an RMA Number. We will reply with the RMA number and instructions to send back your package. We will refuse and return to sender any returns that arrive to us damaged, or without an RMA number being issued prior.
Product must be returned in new, uninstalled condition, and returned in original UNDAMAGED packaging. Please note specifically returns are not accepted on exhausts that are installed because the customer determines they do not like sound. Exhaust tone is subjective, and there is no way we can allow customers to try exhausts, and then return them for refund.
All returns must be properly packaged and sent with proper insurance. Any returns received damaged or obviously installed will be refused and returned to sender.
