What are Refurbished Products?

Refurbishment is the distribution of products (generally electronics) that have been previously returned to a manufacturer or vendor for various reasons,

  • Items that were scratched, cracked, etc. during shipping or handling
  • Items returned without being used a.k.a “Open Box” items
  • Items returned because of a defect or damage
  • Demo items used in retail stores and events

Refurbished products are normally tested for functionality and defects before they are sold to the public.

Used vs Refurbished

Used items are second-hand items that have been used to some extent and are not repaired or checked for defects. On the other hand, refurbished items are carefully checked, repaired and cleaned before going up for sale.

What are Refurbished Grades?

Refurbished Grades lets you know the quality of the refurbished product and reflect whether it has any marks, scuffs or scratches, and to what degree. Grade A being the highest quality and Grade B being the average quality.

Grade A Refurbished
