We at AllSurplus Deals believe it's essential for you to understand the condition of the items you're interested in to ensure you know exactly what you're purchasing.

Here's a breakdown of the different product conditions you will find with our auctions:


  • Definition: An item labeled as "New" is in its original, sealed packaging and has never been used.
  • Expectations: You should expect the product to be in pristine condition, complete with all the original accessories, manuals, and manufacturer's warranty.
  • Ideal For: Buyers looking for something untouched and in mint condition, as you would find in a retail store.

Open Box

  • Definition: "Open Box" items have been opened and taken out of their packaging but are still in excellent condition.
  • Expectations: These products may show minimal signs of wear or use and might not include all original packaging or accessories. They often come with a discounted price to reflect the slight use.
  • Ideal For: Those who prioritize value for money and don't mind an item that's been gently handled if it means a better price.


  • Definition: Items under the "Used" condition have been previously owned and will show signs of wear.
  • Expectations: You should look for detailed descriptions of the item's state, including any cosmetic damage, functional issues, or missing components. These are usually reflected in a lower price point.
  • Ideal For: Bargain hunters who are willing to accept more significant wear for a considerable discount and those skilled in refurbishing or repairing items to a more functional state.

Always read the product descriptions carefully, check photos when available, and make sure to check your products at the warehouse upon arrival for pickup. Remember, the more informed you are, the more confident you can be in your bidding.
