How to grade your equipment
At Park Cameras we want to give you accurate prices according to what information you give us. We want to avoid reducing the price of your equipment once it has been through its final valuation. Below is a quick guide into how you can grade your items before filling out our quote form.
Your equipment is in the condition as if you have just bought it. The item can still be considered ‘Like New’ even if you don’t have the original packaging.
The item should be close to being ‘Like New’ but there may be some small cosmetic blemishes that lower its grade.
- Cameras – Should have no marks on the LCD screen
- Lenses – Should have no marks on the elements or dust within the lens.
‘Middle of the Road.’ Your equipment is not quite Excellent but is too good to be classed as good condition. Your item may have some cosmetic wear to the paintwork.
- Cameras – The LCD screen may have small signs of wear that does not affect its display.
- Lenses – The mount of the lens will start to show signs of wear.
Equipment is showing more obvious signs of cosmetic wear.
- Cameras – LCD screen may have scratches or wear that is starting to affect the display.
- Lenses – May have slight dust inside that does not affect images. The mount shows signs of use.
Your equipment will be showing significant signs of wear. The paintwork will be coming away in large areas exposing the metal work.
- Cameras – LCD screen is heavily worn either by de-lamination or has scratches to it. Rubber grips are starting to come away from the body.
- Lenses – The lens has dust inside that may affect images. The rubber zoom/focus ring is coming away from the barrel of the lens.
