Frequently Asked Questions

What is a pawn shop?

The pawn business is making non-recourse loans to a customer secured by something of value.

Loan doesn’t affect your credit.

We also buy items for cash.

We buy, sell or trade any items of value.

What kinds of assets do we take?

We buy Antiques, Collectibles, Gold and Silver coins, Guns, Bows, Knives, Daggers, Electronics, DVD’s, Speakers, Car Audio equipment, TV’s, Game Systems, Computers, Jewelry, Tools & Power equipment & much more.

How do I get an estimate of my items?

We use eBay & Amazon to research the value of your item. We can’t do estimates over phone. It is best to bring in items so that you are getting the best price for them.

What does it mean to pawn something?

Pawning an item means you are bringing in an item of value. When a loan agreement is made the pawnbroker keeps that item, until the customer repays the loan, with interest & any additional fees that my apply. Pawn stores are regulated on a federal, state and local level.

What happens if I don’t have enough money when the pawn comes due?

You need to contact the pawn store and renew the item if you do not have the funds at the end of the 30 days. You have 30 days on a loan; at the end of 30 days you can either pick-up the item by paying loan + interest or renew by just paying the interest fee & getting another 30 days. *If you renew after the due date you renew from the original due date, not 30 days from the day you paid the interest fee.

Isn’t a lot of merchandise in a pawn shop stolen?

No, people pawn items when they are in need of extra cash. All items taken in are reported online so that law enforcement personnel have access to the records. However, if an item is reported, purchased items have to be held for at least 10 days before they are sold and 30 days if it is a pawned item.

What we don’t take

Cell phones and clothing.
