How we grade our pre-owned equipment and what you can expect from a given rating.
Our grading scale is pretty simple to follow. When we grade an item on our scale we are only looking at the cosmetic condition. Mechanicals and function of an item will be noted in the description. That being said the cosmetic grade or condition of an item is a great way to tell an item's mechanical condition as well as we can tell how much an item was used or how well it was cared for.
