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.
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.
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.
Below is a guide that helps explain our refund policy. As with any refunds conditions do apply and can only be provided with a valid proof of purchase (receipt, proof of transaction: bank statement etc.)
Brand New Items
These items are subject to the full 30-day refund policy. Items can be returned for a full refund if they are faulty. Alternately items can also be returned if packaging is undamaged and unopened and goods are in a resaleable condition (excluding mattresses)
New Items (Beds) (Grade 2)
Due to these items often being end of line stock we cannot offer a manufacturers guarantee and are subject to our 30 – day refund policy only should the item become faulty (excluding mattresses)

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.

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.
