In order to pawn something online effectively, you need to put your best foot forward. There are certain steps you can take to ensure you get the best offer possible. You can find those steps below, along with instructions for using PawnGuru to pawn something.
You’re on your way to great offers and an easy, straight-forward pawning experience!
If you’re not sure what to pawn yet, we suggest pawning something online of high value that you can do without for a little while.
For instance, electronics, guns, jewelry, power tools and autographs will get you a decent chunk of cash. You can try to pawn multiple items or just one.
Read the following articles to get a sense for what you can pawn for various amounts of cash.
Now that you know what types of items are best to pawn, you should make sure the item you pawn isn’t missing any pieces. If your item originally came with a box, manual or certificate, include those. The same goes for accessories for electronics.
Having a complete “package” to pawn will be more appealing to the pawnbroker, as they can likely sell the item for a higher price point should you never pay the loan back. This means you should get more money in your pocket, too.
We highly recommend you dust and clean off any dirt or smudges from the item you’re going to pawn. Do this carefully as to not damage any delicate surfaces or parts of the item.
Presenting a clean and shiny item to a pawnbroker might be another way to get the highest cash offer possible.
In order to pawn something online, you need to communicate what it looks like via photograph.
Take a clear, well-lit photo of your item and make sure that it shows the item in its entirety. The color, size and quality of your possession should be accurately represented in the photo.
Don’t try to hide any flaws, and make sure that you show everything it includes! You don’t want to get a too-high or too-low offer online.
You will receive offers online in no time from your local interested pawn shops! Just sit back and watch them roll in.
If you see an offer you like, accept it and walk into the pawn shop with your item.
They will finalize the offer in person once they take an up-close look at your item. If you go ahead with the transaction, you will need to agree to some loan terms.
The pawn shop will give you cash, and they will hold your item in their possession until you pay back the money for the item, plus any interest and fees indicated by the pawn shop.
