Excellent Condition (Grade A)

• Excellent: Appearance is Like new. The body may have very light micro-scratches, invisible at a distance of 8 inches (a bit longer than a standard sized pencil) or more. For products with screens, the screen will have no scratches. Durability scores are high, and chances of encountering technical issues are very small.

• Grade A: This grade represents the majority of our range. You will get a fully working machine with minimal marks or scuffs at an amazing price. Products may have light cosmetic (barely noticeable) scratching/scuffs on lid. The underside base panels might have slightly heavier marks or scratches being consistent with being placed on surfaces over time. CheshireMacs are very fair and strict on the grading but please remember these are not brand new so will have some signs of use, but anything deemed to look a little too worn is automatically graded as B.

Good Condition (Grade B)

• Good: Light signs of wear. The body may have light micro-scratches, invisible at a distance of 20 inches (about an arm’s length) or more. For products with screens, the screen will have no scratches. Durability scores are above average, and chances of encountering technical issues are small.

• Grade B: These are the same as Grade A but will have one small cosmetic issue which will be shown in a photo attached to the product listing. This could be a heavier scratch or small dent, and will come with a discount which will vary in relation to the extent.

Fair Condition (Grade C)

• Fair: Have signs of wear. The body may have a few visible scratches and dents that do not affect performance. For products with screens, the screen may have light scratches, invisible when the screen is on. Durability scores are average, and still correspond with the quality levels required by Back Market's quality charter.
