Used Product Conditions Guidelines

If you are considering selling your used equipment through CoffeeTec, please read our condition definitions, as we strive to accurately describe each item. 

If you are looking to buy used equipment through CoffeeTec, we use a 3-point process to vet all pieces we agree to sell. Each item must meet the high standards that we stake our reputation on. 

Our 3-point vetting process:

  • Review: Our team reviews each submission (including photos and/or video) and considers its overall condition, year, make and model, features, options, and history.
  • Research: Next, we research comparable used equipment, our current inventory, and market trends. 
  • Resale Quote: If the used equipment meets our product standards, we determine the best possible resale price and present it to the seller for approval. 

We’ve outlined general guidelines below:

  • As-Is:
    • Item is sold in present condition with possible signs of cosmetic wear, but is in essence, "As Is".
    • Buyer accepts item “with all faults,” whether or not immediately apparent
    • Seller is responsible to accurately list all relevant details of current state, and buyer is responsible to examine item to the best of their ability and ask thorough questions before agreeing to purchase item
  • Fair: Item shows heavy signs of use but is in proper working condition
