Trust and transparency are core values of our business and as such, we have implemented industry standard NAMA grading across all of our vehicles, ensuring that buyers have total oversight and peace of mind in their biding decisions.

All of our vehicle inspectors have undergone NAMA accredited training and all vehicles are now inspected in accordance within the guidelines set out by NAMA.

Vehicle grades are available to all buyers on sale catalogues and pre-sale marketing alongside our existing comprehensive condition details and in-depth imagery.

The definitions of each NAMA grade assigned to each vehicle are as follows:

Grade

Definition

1

The vehicle may have minor interior and exterior defects that require SMART repairs, i.e. minor scratches or dents. Minor replacement parts may also be required these will all be recorded on the appraisal.

2

The vehicle may require repairs at Grade 1, plus up to 1 major or minor body shop repair to an individual panel or bumper. The replacement of more significant internal or external trim parts (excluding panels) may also be required. These will all be recorded on the appraisal.

3

The vehicle may require repairs as Grade 1 and 2 plus it may require up to 5 minor body shop repairs, 3 major body shop repairs or a combination of major or minor repairs. The vehicle may require 1 replacement bumper but not 2. These will be recorded on the appraisal.

4

The vehicle may require repairs as Grade 1, 2 and 3. It may have a combination of repairs including a replacement panel, but this will exclude structural panels such as roofs and quarter panels. These will all be recorded on the appraisal.

5

The vehicle may require repairs as Grade 1,2,3 and 4. It may have a combination of repairs or the vehicle may have sustained collision damage where the replacement of up to 2 structural panels may be required (providing there is no other damage on the vehicle), these will be recorded on the appraisal.

U

Vehicles in the grade are simply uneconomical to appraise and fall into one of the following categories.

  • Substantial accident damage
  • Major parts missing
  • Multiple recorded items (exceeding the criteria of Grade 5)
  • Multiple unrecorded items

For vendors, NAMA grading will bring consistency in benchmarking and KPI reporting whilst also facilitating greater oversight on vehicles progressing through.
