Condition grading

Why do we grade the condition of our items?

Here at HL’s House we want to make sure we are as transparant as possible with our customers and the condition of our second-hand items. That’s why we maticulously grade the quality and condition of our items when selling them. As a result we have constructed a grading scale which will help you understand the condition of an item. Please find the scale below and feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
