Global Resale UK Cosmetic Grading Criteria

The product which we sell is typically ex-corporate environment stock which is no longer required or end of lease. As such these products have been in use and will show signs of wear and tear. We grade our products to show the various conditions in which the equivalent stock can be in. 


To keep our prices competitive the product you receive has not been professionally cleaned and will be in bulk packaging. We are unable to guarantee battery health. Please see our grading criteria for further details
