Euc, guc, etc

Postby usinukveg » Wed Apr 27, 2011 11:42 am

I read a post about this earlier, about defining with euc and guc actually meant for cnt classifieds. I think it would be a good idea to define them. I've just sold on a tots fleece wrap that I thought was guc, but the seller is disappointed with the condition. Maybe I have lower standards than everyone else (I have received many many preloved in much worse condition!) It was bobbled, but still works perfectly fine? Should I have called it simply used condition? Anyways, she turned down my offer of a refund, so I guess it's not that bad, but I'm left feeling quite guilty.

How would you modify these classifications? (all stains, elastic problems, holes and fading disclosed of course)

New - Never used, never prewashed
Prewashed - never used, only prewashed
EUC - Used but with no stains, very little fading, non-greyed aplix, elastic still stretchy and intact, only slight bobbling on fleece.
GUC - Used possibly with very light stains (disclosed of course) light to medium fading, elastic still stretchy and intact, pul in good condition, bobbling on fleece, slight greying of aplix.
UC - Used with possible stains, fading, elastic less stretchy than before, fleece heavily bobbled.

As was said on the other threasd it is such a subjective thing that it is better to actually descibe the condition and any issue such as bobbling than rely on someone else having the same definition of guc.

I know, I'm just guilt posting...it's just that I said it was bobbled, and she was still unhappy!

What Ali said. Definitions are difficult as meanings are different to everyone. I rarely describe something as EUC, I tend to use VGUC, which isn't even on your list. I try to describe fully and invite requests for additional pictures and/or descriptions if people want more information about the condition of a particular item.

If you said GUC on a fleece wrap, I would expect some bobbling. Also if you said it on the listing, the issue is hers & not yours. The wrap was sold as described.

I agree - if she knew there was bobbling and it was otherwise fine she's got nothing to complain about

I agree and fleece bobbles pretty much in the first couple of washes anyways x

Yep definitely this. I've got some small fleece wraps that have literally been used no more than 5 times. They are what I'd call EUC because I know how often they've been used, but they are bobbled as that's the very nature of fleece :-?
