Grading

How our Grading Works

Grade A

Your machine looks brand new. It doesn’t have a single scratch, nick or blemish whatsoever.

A

Grade B

Your machine is almost perfect, but may have a few very small nicks on the edge OR Your machine is almost perfect with just a few hairline scratches. Your screen is perfect and it’s in pristine overall condition.

B

Grade C

Your machine shows average wear. Minor scratches, scuffs and small dents possible. Screen is still in perfect condition.

C

Grade D

Your machine is heavily used. There are a lot of scratches or dents etc. Screen may have some damage, but still working fine and does not impede visual usage.

D

Grade E

Your machine has deep scratches, dents, cracks and/or broken screen. Item must be complete and case assembly together. We won’t accept water damage or burnt items. Battery can be faulty and power supplies missing.

E

We try to take any subjectivity out of the cosmetic grading process. Please grade your machine in the proper category to get the most accurate quote possible.
We run the industry standard program, Tech Tools on all machines. Any hardware failure will result in a deduction of that specific part. For example, if your hard drive is failing, but your machine is cosmetically a grade B, grade it a B and we will simply deduct the hard drive replacement.

Factors That May Reduce Your Quote

POWER SUPPLY: All machines should be supplied with a working and undamaged US power supply. If the power supply is missing or damaged, $20-$55 will be deducted from the quoted value, depending on the model.

BATTERY: Any battery with a cycle count of 500 or more will be subject to a deduction of a battery replacement ($30-$60, depending on the model).

KEYBOARD: All laptops and iMacs must be supplied with a US keyboard. If the unit has a foreign keyboard, we will deduct the value of a replacement keyboard from your quote value. We require all desktop machines to also be supplied with the specific Apple keyboard and mouse.

All iPhones/iPads must not be regionally locked. If your iPhone is locked to a specific network your item will be subject to a re-quote.

Your item must be free of cigarette smoke stains and or water damage.

Any engraved items will be re-graded as a D grade.

We run all items through Checkmend, a database of stolen items to ensure all products are legal
