How to Pawn Something Quickly for the Most Money Possible

Since you’re wanting to pawn something quickly, you probably don’t want to spend time researching how to get the most money for it. However, we’ll give you some words of advice that might help you get more cash than you intended.

In order to get the most cash for something you pawn, you should show that it was well taken care of. This means you should always include all the original components and make sure it’s clean.

Original components can simply include the item plus the box it came in, or you can go as far as including extra accessories that you bought to go along with the item.

Aside from this, you want to make sure your item is clean. It will appear newer (and therefore more valuable to the pawnbroker) if you get rid of any dust, cobwebs or dirt that might have accumulated on it.

If you’re undecided on what type of item you will pawn, read our post on the Best Things to Pawn for Quick Cash. It will give you a list of the items pawn shops will often give you money for, and what they place the most value on.

In the end, this will give you ideas for what will get you the most money.
