We log all our parts history and and group them as follows:
Brand new parts supplied by the manufacturer or dealer usually boxed.
A lot of our new parts are purchased in bulk from either the manufacturer or other 3rd party suppliers and we may not receive them individually boxed. Additionally, they may also have come from brand new damaged sets which have had 0 hours use.
These are new parts but may have been used for testing purposes to eliminate a fault. If they have been used then they will have had very little use. Main boards will still be ready for 1st time installation.
A part repaired and tested by us prior to our own use or for sale.
A part that is usually taken from a new set that has had other damage in the factory or upon delivery.
Alternatively, it may have come from an older set but either way, it would of been tested by a qualified engineer prior to storage for our own use or to sell on.
