When you’re ready to sell your devices, the amount you get for them all comes down to the grading scale. It is important to understand how a company grades out devices to get a real idea of what you could expect.
At Tech Defenders, we believe in being transparent with our partners during the Buyback process, which is why we came up with an aggregate scoring system to determine the overall condition of your devices. Depending on the device type, a unique set of components are given an A-F score with an assigned weighted score. This determines the payout you will receive for your devices.
