Used Car Parts Grading Guide

The aim of the Gala Motors Ltd grading scheme at its highest level is to deliver key benefits to all the parties involved in the transaction. It is designed to facilitate the buying and selling process of a used car in a condition that is better understood by both parties. With a better understanding of a vehicle condition it should be possible to more accurately anticipate a selling price that is consistent with the typically observed prices for similar cars parts in the same trading period, subject to similar market conditions.

Grade A: Can be considered as “USED CONDITION” and expected to be in working order, unless otherwise stated within the product description.

Grade B: Can be considered as “WITH MINOR MARKS” and these items can be expected to be in working order, but may have blemishes or visible imperfections that do not affect the overall function. If they have cosmetic damage/imperfections that do not affect their performance. Items may be in the original or a generic box. Minor parts or accessories may not be present.

Grade C: Can be considered as “DAMAGED – FOR PARTS ONLY”. This category will include damaged items, incomplete items and salvage stock (for spares/repairs).

The above is only a guide to what condition items can be expected to be in. It is not a guarantee that any item will match exactly the criteria above and purchasers are advised to enquire about graded items prior to bidding.
