So what does Grade A, B, C & D mean?

Global Resale has a range of products for sale in various cosmetic conditions. We have made it simple to understand the cosmetic grading scale, A, B, C, & D, allowing you feel confident and secure about your purchase.

Almost every seller of refurbished or used IT equipment has a grading system and it can be confusing so we have gone to great lengths to ensure our grading is accurate, easy to understand and transparent. Here is our description of each cosmetic grade of our products.

Please Note: Independent of the cosmetic grade and/or missing components, the product will be fully functional - Global Resale does not sell non-functional units.
