Boca Raton’s own Lee Josephson from Boca Raton Pawn was recently quoted in Fox Business, “A lot of times people will ask about the interest rate, but forget about the fees”. Sometimes the fees are so hidden and so massive, that the customer could get “robbed” of their money before they have even walked out the door. With that just being one of the many questions to ask.
Here are a few more to remember:
*How long have you been in business?
*Are you insured?
*What happens if the shop is robbed and my item is stolen?
*Do you require paper work?
*Where will my stuff be kept?
* Will I get notifications of when my bill is due?
Proper paper work and full knowledge of your state’s pawn shop laws are a good way to make sure you are dealing with an honest shop. For instance, In Florida, paw shops are required to make a copy of your driver’s license and take a thumb print to have on file for all of their customers.
Lastly, make sure you leave with all of your paperwork, including copies of the paperwork the shop manager made you sign for! Especially the receipt, because that could be one of the hidden fees they can (and some do)! charge for!
Remember, don’t just run out and pawn when desperate times are amongst, pawn SMART! Pawn iPhones, iPads or other Apple Products today!
LVMH (Moet Hennessey Louis Vuitton) has agreed to a deal to buy the luxury designer Bvlgari. Bvlgari has been around since the late 19th century. The deal is estimated to be worth over 3.7 billion Euro.
Bvlgari will now be the 2nd largest company that LVMH owns. They are also awarded two seats on the board of directors.
Louis Vuitton seems to become more popular every day. Their handbags, jewlery, and even shoes are a staple of luxury all around the world. Louis Vuitton has one of the best residual values of all luxury goods companies.
If you are looking to sell Louis Vuitton items go to your local pawn shop. They usually have someone working there who knows about handbags and purses and will give you cash.
