TOP THINGS TO PAWN FOR CASH
Need Fast Cash? Keep reading to see what bring in the big bucks(ish).
- JEWELRY OR SCRAPS OF JEWELRY
Jewelry, especially gold and silver, has intrinsic value. Bring in your precious metal rings, bracelets, watches, necklaces, loose gems, chains, any any other real jewels, gold, and silver you have.
- GAS AND POWER TOOLS
There is a large second-hand market for power tools, both gas, and battery. As with your high-end electronics, you want to make sure that all the components (cables, accessories, etc.) are equipped with the product to get the maximum value, in addition to charging or filling with gas before you bring it in the store. If they can prove it works effectively, the cash is yours. However, since these items tend to get dirty, it is not a bad idea to make a soap lather on it before you show it.
- HIGH-END ELECTRONICS
High-end electronics, including relatively large LED and LCD TVs, new gaming systems, digital cameras, tablets, laptops and more, are promising items. The value of these items in the pawn shop is similar to what they are looking for on sites like Gumtree and eBay. Making sure your item is in a state of complete and excellent condition is an essential quality needed to make the most of your piece. Cables, controllers and even missing packaging materials, especially for Apple products, can significantly reduce the value. Also, make sure the devices are fully charged before going to the store so the pawn professionals can test the article quickly and efficiently.
- Coins and coins
Perhaps one of the safest bets in the pawn shop is currency and money. Collectors often go to pawnbrokers to find rare pieces for their collections, so the market is strong. Since we are dealing with money here, you will almost always have a face value. The ideal items to take to pawn shops are US collectibles, gold coins, silver dollars, half dollars, American eagles, test matches, silver certificates, Federal Reserve notes and rare notes.
- Musical instruments
A story about NBC News a few years ago showed that musical instruments are personal objects, much to the delight of parents around the world whose students give up their violin lessons after four weeks. However, guitars and amplifiers are among the most sought-after items, probably to the chagrin of parents whose high school students dream of celebrities in a workshop group.
It is probably not surprising that arms sales are a big deal for pawnbrokers given the political climate in which we live. Arms sales are complicated. To get started, you need to be the registered owner of the weapon you want to mortgage and find a shop that accepts your weapon type. Some stores only take antiques or restrictions on automatic weapons. Besides, arms control laws are becoming ever stricter, and policies are continually changing. These items may become rare in pawn shops soon.
Your boat, yacht, speedboat, your old car, van, truck and other cars are also some great deal in pawn shops. Make sure they are at least in working condition, and you are going back home a richer person.
- Rare collectibles and objects of historical value
Have you ever seen the Antiques Roadshow with amazement (and a little jealousy) with the seemingly everyday objects that bring people with surprisingly high value? You may have highlighted some of these hidden treasures in your own attic, basement or your home. The value is increased if your item is collectible or has a historical value. If you feel that something can pay you a big salary, first check online what you are doing with it and continue from there.
