What are refurbished grades? The grades apply to second-hand or refurbished high-tech products in order to identify precise and realistic criteria, which quickly gives an idea of the aesthetic or cosmetic condition of a device. A grade does not in any way provide information on the technical or operational elements of the device.
It provides information, for example, which explains the difference in price between two identical products.
At Agora Place, we have developed our own grades according to our specifications in order to provide consistent quality and verified traceability, regardless of where the stock has come from.
