How We Value Items

We use all the research tools we have at our disposal to determine an item’s value and get you the most money we can. This appraisal process for a pawn item varies depending on the type of item—for example, jewelry is evaluated differently than a guitar—but every appraisal is done with the intent of getting you the money you need.

What It's Worth - Authenticating Gold & Diamonds

When jewelry is the being pawned, our professionally trained staff will authenticate the precious metal and diamonds. We will always ask your permission to test your item before we begin the authentication process that includes a visual inspection using a jeweler’s loupe, weighing the item, sizing (determining carat weight) any diamonds and noting the cut/color/clarity of each. In addition, we will test the metal using jewelers acid which determines the karat of gold. This process does not damage your jewelry. It is done to ensure a clean test so there are no false readings on your item that may detract from what we can offer you.

Testing General Merchandise

When it’s general merchandise you want to pawn—TVs, stereos, DVD players, cameras, power tools, etc.—we will test each item to ensure it is in good working condition. That includes, but is not limited to, a visual inspection, plugging in an item and turning it on, and noting if any accessories are included. The better the condition of your item, the more money we can offer you. This is true for any item you bring in to pawn/sell.

New vs. Pre-owned

The prices we offer you for your items are based on pre-owned retail prices, not what the item cost when it was new. Any item that is sold to us as pre-owned and will be priced accordingly on our sales floor. The amount we give you is based on that anticipated selling price. Items are researched and reviewed to ensure that our offers are in line with the general marketplace for pre-owned merchandise.

Overall Condition of the Item

The condition of an item is always taken into account during the appraisal process for a pawn. If one 32-inch television comes in that is in perfect condition and one 32-inch television comes in with a chipped screen, we will pay more on the TV that is in better condition. This is true for any merchandise.
