3.2. Product(s) for sale via the Website usually fall into one of the following categories:
"A Grade" New unused stock: Please note that in some instances this stock may have been subject to previous distribution to stores within our network and subsequent recall to centralised distribution and may have been stored in warehouses and/or retail stores for some time. Packaging may show some signs of wear from transit with the occasional box having been opened. Some items may have been viewed by customers in stores, and some products may even have been on display before being repacked and returned. All of these factors can mean that product may have some missing packaging or could even potentially be marked. When dealing with very large volume reverse flows and human interactions it is possible that mistakes may be made in product inventory, hence our clauses around inventory quantities within these T&C’s. It is also possible that a store returning a product to a warehouse may on occasion wrongly classify a product, however we do take reasonable care to ensure that this isn’t a regular occurrence.
"B" Customer returns and ex display in virtually "As New" condition & complete with all accessories, or new stock with slightly distressed packaging.
"C" Customer returns in graded condition with minimal signs of use. Complete with accessories (may not have instruction books). May not be in original packaging.
"D" Customer returns missing some accessories mostly working. May have more visible signs of use.
"U” or “Untested Returns" Mixed products that are deemed unfit for resale. These will include:
Mostly returns from customers as “faulty” although no testing at store or warehouse has taken place. This product may be missing some accessories. Model changes could have occurred which may mean you receive a similar or same specification item. Original packaging may be missing;
Other returns from customers under our retail clients’ return policies. These goods are not necessarily faulty, however no testing at store or warehouse has taken place. This product may be missing some accessories. Original packaging may be missing;
Products damaged in distribution or store processes;
