WHAT IS PAWNING & HOW DOES IT WORK?

What is pawning and how does it work is a common question we receive. Pawning an item is a long honoured tradition, and a remarkably simple process. Back before banks offered credit cards and lines of credits freely, there were Pawn Shops. For hundreds of years Pawn Shops have been the way many would be able to deal with short term cash flow issues. If you had an item of value, and needed cash, you took it to the Pawn Shop. You can learn more about what a Pawn Shop is and how pawning works here.

Get A Loan Against Your Vehicle

The most common asset or item of value that people own is their vehicle. Many own more than one vehicle, maybe even an RV, a Boat, an ATV, or even a Motorcycle. If you own any of these and have a need for cash, we would be happy to discuss the value of your vehicle and therefore how much you would be able to loan against that vehicle. No job required, just an ID and your vehicle. You can learn more about pawning your vehicle here.

What’s My Item Worth?

We’ve seen it all: Lawnmowers to Ferrari’s, powdered gold to Cartier masterpieces and everything in between. One thing’s for sure; we rarely see the same thing twice, and that makes the items we pawn or buy extremely unique. No doubt your item is complex and unique, and that’s why we would never try putting a value to something we haven’t seen. Anything of value to you is of value to us. You can tell us about your item here and we’ll do our best to get back to you as quickly as possible.
