Did you know that your old printer could be costing you more money than it’s actually worth?

But, what are you going to do with your old printer once you get the shiny new one? It would be a shame to waste all of the time and money you’ve already put into this one.

This is where the pawn shop comes in. Pawn shops are a great option for anyone looking to upgrade their current gadgets and gizmos.

How to Pawn a Printer

Learning to pawn is easy, you just need to know the steps.

First, you need to know how much your printer is worth. Keep in mind that pawn shops are resellers, so they will offer less than retail price. You can find the retail price by searching on eBay or online, but keep in mind you will receive less than retail.

Determine Its Value

How do you determine your printer’s value?

Locate the model number on your printer. There should be a small sticker –or printed label– on the side or bottom of your printer. Once you’ve found it, you can do a quick Google search to see how much this model is selling for at today’s price.

Keep in mind how long you’ve owned the printer and note any damages the printer may have. You will need to factor these things in when determining the printer’s value.

Find the Right Pawn Shop

Once you’ve decided how much you’re going to ask for your printer, it’s time to find the right pawn shop.

Finding the right pawn shop only takes a few minutes of research and can truly make the difference in your pawning experience.
