Grading

What is grading?

Grade A B C D is an industry-standard way to describe what to expect of a computer product in the recovery and resale markets. AnythingIT seeks to provide a fully transparent process to ensure confidence in the customer’s expectations of what to expect for recovery value.
Grading of Laptops, Desktops, computers, iPads, monitors, phones, and PC’s after years of use is an essential step in valuing your used computer equipment. The Grading of computers, desktops, laptops, iPad, monitors, and PC’s focus on the outward appearance like external surfaces (i.e. cover / lid and keyboards) housing, LCD/LCD blemishes. The method of grading computers, desktops, laptops, iPad, monitors, and PC’s are done by physically inspecting each item. As part of the AnythingIT audit, we will accurately describe the condition by assigning a Refurbished Grade A, B, C, D, so you will know what to expect on a recovery value.

Upon arrival of the computers desktops laptops Ipads monitors, phones, and PC’s at the processing centers, they should be graded strictly for quality. Words like new, very minor wear; Light/fine scratches on screen, large paint chips, large cracks on the body, loose/wobbly base, dark spots on the screen that exceed .5 inch in diameter, uneven light diffusion, are used during this process. Each unit will then be assigned a GRADE and sorted out for the best attributes.
