Over the last few months I have bought and given collateral loans for hundreds of items. While just about anything can be pawned to a local pawn shop, I’d like to point out our most commonly pawned items (top 3 anyway).
3. Musical Instruments
Musical Instruments, like guitars and piano,s are our third most popular pawned item. A lot of people play music but just don’t have the time anymore. Instead of having a guitar waste space in an attic we have a lot of customers come and sell or pawn their musical instruments. Most local pawn shop will accept musical instruments as there a
re plenty of potential buyers out there.
2. Gold, Jewelry, and Watches
This makes sense as these are the items people have the most of with the most value. For example a 2 carat diamond can fit just about anywhere and weighs relatively nothing. An item like this can be sold for thousands of dollars to a local pawn shop. It makes perfect sense that people who need a lot of money would turn to their gold, jewelry, and watches first.
This includes laptops, phones, iPhones, iPads, speakers, amplifiers, etc. Since technology is changing at an exponential rate, people’s electronics are quickly becoming old news. Every year a new iPhone comes out and everyone wants the new one. What better to do with the old one than sell it to a local pawn shop? You might as well get get some cash for it while you still can.
