What Are Refurbished Electronics? Can You Make Money With Them?

If you buy and sell wholesale electronics, you’ll always be on the lookout for cheaper, more reliable sources of wholesale merchandise to keep your customers happy, the competition at bay and the profits flowing. If that’s you, you should check out the refurbished electronics for sale on an online liquidation marketplace owned and operated by a top-tier liquidation specialist like Direct Liquidation.

Here we take a look at what refurbished electronics are, where’s the best place to source them from and how they will make your business money.

What Are Refurbished Electronics?

Liquidators separate refurbished electronics into three grades. These grades are:

Grade A

Grade A refurbished liquidated electronics are in an ‘as new’, ‘retail ready’ condition. This means they have no blemishes, scratches, defects, dents or signs of aging at all. The electronics in this category have been fully restored to the manufacturers’ original specifications.

Grade A refurbished electronics usually come in their original packaging. If this is not the case, they will instead come packaged in plain white or brown packaging. All the original accessories – such as chargers, headphones, etc. – will be either present or will have been replaced with like-for-like replacements and the products will come with all the original documentation save for the original manufacturer’s warranty. Instead, the liquidator offers a new 90-day warranty which is valid from the date of pick-up.

Grade B

Unlike Grade A category electronics, Grade B category products bear slight cosmetic defects such as the odd scratch, slight signs of aging or a tiny dent. These products are fully inspected and tested and returned to manufacturer’s spec and are sold in a ‘retail ready’ condition.

Like Grade A category products, Grade B refurbished liquidated electronics come in either their original packaging or white or brown replacement packaging with all accessories and original documentation apart from the original warranty which, again, has been replaced with the liquidator’s own 90-warranty valid from the date of pick-up.

Grade C

The final category of refurbished liquidation electronics is Grade C. These are products that have been inspected, tested and returned to manufacturer quality standards, yet bear significant cosmetic defects such as highly visible scratches, dents and very obvious signs of wear and tear.

As with Grades A and B refurbished electronics, Grade C products come in ‘retail ready’ original or plain packaging with all accessories present or replaced with like-for-like and all original documentation barring the original manufacturers’ warranty which has been replaced with the liquidator’s 90-warranty, again valid from the date of pick-up.
