Condition of Items sold

Below is a guide to help you understand the types of items now stocked at reuse, the grades allows us to sort goods in the warehouse not only by price but also by quality.

Item Grade

Description

Brand New
These items are brand new, and have been purchased directly from our wholesale suppliers for sale in the warehouse
New(Grade 2)

Although these items have been purchased new, these are often end of line stocks. Buying in this way allows Reuse to pass the savings onto its customers. However as this is end of line or surplus stock, new items do not come with a manufacturers guarantee and can only be offered with the reuse 30-day refund policy

As Good as New (Grade 2)

Many of these items have never been used, these items are largely donated by outside companies. Although many of the items come preassembled, they have mainly been used for photography and marketing purposes. Damage if any may be minimal and caused whilst in transit etc.

Pre-Loved

These items are preloved items that have kindly been donated to Reuse usually from members of the public. Although most show signs of wear and tear they are still reusable.

The customer may at the company’s discretion dismantle their own items after purchase. Reuse will not accept liability or offer refunds for any items damaged or parts lost as a result of this.

Please ensure you have measured any large items prior to purchase. We cannot be held responsible if the item does not fit in your property and no refund will be offered.

Donations Policy

Below is a guide to help you understand our donations policy. As Reuse is starting to evolve due to not only customer requirements and feedback but also situations out of our control (Covid 19). We have had to re-evaluate what we can and can’t accept but also how we accept donations.

1. Please note in most instances we can no longer accept walk in donations.

2. Donations can be made by appointment only.

3. If you would like to donate any items, this can be done in 3 ways:

  • Calling the Reuse warehouse and speak with a member of our team
  • Drop us a message on Facebook about items you have
  • Send us a whatsapp message about items you have.

The Donation Process.

Once you have contacted Reuse to discuss your potential donation, you may be asked to supply pictures or a short video / description of the items you wish to donate, along with any advice if the  item is marked or damaged. This allows us to evaluate the item (check for any damage) and access its suitability for donation. Once agreed with a member of staff you will then be invited to drop off your donation.

Due to the current pandemic and changes in customer shopping habits there are now certain items we no longer sell or accept see our donations page.
