Where to Sell Used PS3 Consoles Quickly & Easily

The best place to sell used PS3 game consoles with as little effort and time investment on your part is at a pawn shop in your local area.

Since pawn shop staff (also referred to as pawnbrokers) are professionals with years of experience pricing used possessions, you know you’re dealing with someone who can give you a fair offer for your PS3 console. As opposed to dealing directly with individual buyers in your community on forum sites such as Craigslist, you are likely to get a better deal at a pawn shop.

Better yet, you’ll get same day cash-in-hand for your PlayStation 3. And you don’t need to do the whole “pawn loan” thing. You can sell your PS3 outright.

Given the fact that you most likely have more than one pawn shop in your local area, let’s talk about how to know where to sell your used PS3 for the most money possible.

Where to Sell Used PS3 Consoles for the Most Money Possible

It’s difficult to know where to sell used PS3 consoles in order to get the biggest payout. It’s also important to know that if there’s a wide array of pawn shops in your city, several of these are likely pawn shops that specialize in a certain category of items.

For instance, some pawn shops focus on jewelry, some focus on designer wear, and others focus on weapons and ammo. Lucky for you, it is common for pawn shops to take electronics— including game consoles.

To sell your used PS3 for the most money possible, we recommend using PawnGuru.

What is PawnGuru and How do I Sell My Used PS3?

At PawnGuru, we give you a platform to list your PS3 for sale in your local area just for pawn shops to bid on. You describe the PS3, take a photo of it and add your contact details to the listing. Next, PawnGuru sends that information directly to pawn shops in your local area.

Rest assured that your contact details are only made available to the pawn shop. Oh, and using PawnGuru is completely free of charge to you.
