You can pickup your items any time you like until the end of your loan term.

How Much Can I Sell My Jewelry for at a Pawn Shop?

On the average we buy and pawn jewelry between $5 and $10,000. The price we pay for jewelry depends on the precious metal, weight and the stones as well quality of the stones. Best way to find out is to bring your items to our local pawn shop and we will appraise and let you know the value. You decide if you want to sell or pawn.

Can I Sell Tools at Your Pawn Shop?

The next most common items for our pawn shop to buy are professional brand name power tools. We buy, sell and give loans based on the value of the tools. The kinds of tools that are most often loaned against are power hand tools. We buy, sell as well as give loans for tools like drills, circular saws, reciprocating saws, impact drivers, small tools that are easy to store.

What to do after getting a loan from a local pawn shop?

Once you pawn an item and accept our best price we create paperwork as required by law. You will review the loan and the terms as well as sign the pawn ticket. Your copy will be given to you and you will receive the cash. This pawn ticket contains all the terms, explanation of fees, due dates and amounts.

You always have 2 choices after you have a loan with a pawn shop.

1. You can return to our store and pay the balance which includes the interest before the deadline. Generally the loan is for four months.

2. Don’t return to repay your loan. We will notify you of when your loan is coming due just before the final date via regular mail. If you do not come in by the due date of your loan we will sell your item to recoup our investment. Most of our customers do not choose this method. Over 80% will come in and either claim the pawned item or pay interest for another 4 months.
The choice is up to you. Find a shop in which you feel comfortable dealing with. We prefer that you visit ours near Downtown LA and we are sure we can give you the best loan, best experience and customer service.
