REASONS TO VISIT THE PAWN SHOP THIS SPRING

REASONS TO VISIT THE PAWN SHOP THIS SPRING

At this time of year, many people throw open the windows and get to work with spring cleaning. Part of that often includes decluttering and revamping the look of your home. While garage sales are popular during the spring, you typically can only sell items for a couple of dollars, and big ticket items won’t get you as far in your yard as they could in a a pawn shop. Pawn shops are also a great place to purchase items for your home at a fraction of what you would pay in a typical retail store.  

SPRING CLEANING DEALS

You can find almost any tool that can aid in spring cleaning and sprucing up your home inside and out at a pawn shop. The best part is that these items are typically far less expensive than purchasing them brand new from large hardware stores.

Since our locations are just outside of Fort Bragg, we often have servicemembers coming in with items that have been barely used, but are too much of a hassle to move.

ANTIQUES AND ARTWORK

WHY IT IS BETTER TO BUY FROM A PAWN SHOP VS. CRAIGSLIST OR FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE

If you are interested in making quick easy cash without any hassle or stress, a pawn shop is the best place to go. Trying to sell your item online may take weeks or even months; hence why selling your item to a pawn shop is your best bet. You can get cash the same day and be out the door in a few minutes.

As there are many online selling platforms such as Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace, many may wonder whether it’s better to sell online or via local pawn shops. We will explain the difference here.

CASH AND EARNING

In most cases, you will not get your item’s asking price at a pawn shop. However, it is not always guaranteed on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace either — where people haggle over prices as well, looking to make their own deal. 

At a pawn shop, it is simple — you agree on the price and walk away with instant cash.

VALUE

Sometimes you might not know the exact value of the items you’re selling.

When you sell on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace, you need to research the price and value on your own. Next, you will post the item and wait for an offer.  You may experience receiving low offers or many spam offers. You may even lack offers and have to reduce the price in order to make a sale.

When using a pawn shop, the professionals give you a fair assessment of your item without the hassle of haggling.

SAFETY

Selling your items through internet sources like Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace exposes you to more potential buyers. Not everybody online has good intentions and you might be defrauded. Online selling is not regulated and it is virtually impossible to track down fraud.  Additionally, when selling online — you might need to travel long distances to meet your buyer.

However, pawn shops, are regulated by each state and have their own regulatory laws.  They also have a physical location and are secure places and you can speak to trusted employees.

SELLING GOLD TO A PAWN SHOP

Gold is gold, it retains its value based on the current daily rates for gold, and it does not matter when the item was made.  If you’re just looking to get some extra cash for old jewelry you’ve had hanging around the house or because you are in a pinch, Parker Pawn & Jewelry has you covered.

 

KNOWING YOUR WEIGHT IN GOLD

The current value of gold is always publicly available, so it is important to educate yourself on how much you can expect to receive for your gold. Knowing the weight of your gold and the current value, you can estimate how much your gold or jewelry is worth.

It is important to remember that the value of gold is to remember that it is based on its purity.   In the simplest of terms think of 24K gold and look at it as a pizza that has been cut into 24 equal pieces. If you take two pieces away, you are left with 22K gold. If you take 6 pieces away, you are left with 18K gold.

If you have an 18K gold coin, it means there are only 18 pieces of pure gold, or it is 75 percent pure gold. If the current value of pure gold was $1,100 per ounce, then your 18K gold coin would only be worth 75 percent of $1,100 per ounce, which is $825 per ounce. If your gold coin contained two ounces of pure gold, then it would be valued at $1,650.

*Disclaimer — the dollar amounts used are only examples to show how gold is valued and do not reflect the current daily rates or how much you could get for your gold items today.

 

WHAT TYPE OF GOLD PIECES CAN YOU PAWN?

  • Necklaces
  • Earrings
  • Cuff links
  • Rings
  • Bracelets
  • Anklets
  • Brooches

These can be in white gold, yellow gold and rose gold. Solid gold items will offer the greatest value, but we are also interested in gold-plated pieces.

WHY PARKER PAWN & JEWELRY

If you want to find out what your gold pieces are worth, then visit Parker Pawn and Jewelry.  We offer the best pricing for gold in the area, and we guarantee that you won’t find a better price anywhere else, so our shops make the process easy and you can feel assured that you’re getting the best pricing and the most return on your gold jewelry.

How to get a Cash Loan

Regardless of your current financial needs, the most important thing is how to get fast cash loans. Pawnshops are the safest and easiest way to get fast cash. In order to get fast cash, you can either sell a valuable item to the pawnshop or apply for a cash loan and leave your items at the shop as collateral.
HOW IT WORKS
 
If you need instant cash, bring a valuable item to the pawnshop for inspection. Normally, pawn shops offer about 25%-60% of the item’s resale value. Once the item passes inspection, you discuss the loan terms and interest; or in other words the contract. You will have a choice in how to pay off the loan and over what time period.  If you fail to pay your loan back within the loan terms, the pawnshop will sell your collateral item and use it to collect the loan.
WHY CHOOSE PARKER PAWN FOR CASH LOANS
You can guarantee that you will get a fast cash loan regardless of your credit score — as your credit will not be checked.  In addition, it will not hurt your credit score regardless if you pay it back or not.
It is fast, safe, and simple.  It’s a win-win situation when applying for cash loans in pawn shops. You get the money while they get your valuable item.
Parker Pawn and Jewelry is Legitimate and safe.

HOW TO SAFELY PAWN YOUR JEWELRY

Have you always wondered how a pawn shop works? People pawn jewelry, cars, tool and guns, among many other possessions in order to make cash.  It is done in a matter of a loan and so that a bank isn’t involved and a credit check is not run.  The loans are a convenient solution, but it is important that you understand how to safely pawn your jewelry for a successful experience.
Understand How it Works
 
Before entering the shop, it is important to understand the ins and outs of how pawn shops operate and that they are a regulated business.
Pawnshops offer collateral-based loans; meaning the loan is secured by something of value. You bring in something of value and the store will offer you a loan. The pawnbroker then keeps your item until you repay the loan. The loan amount will likely be a fraction of the item’s actual value.
The only consideration for exchanging an item for a loan is that the loan must be paid back within the allotted time. Most shops give people a few months to repay the loan, with the addition of fees and interest. The pawned item becomes the property of the shop if the borrower fails to meet their obligations of the loan.
Make Sure You Use Your Own Items
When making any transactions for a pawn loan, make sure you have sole ownership. Do not use items you bought and gave to someone else or property you expect to inherit someday. It is important if there is more than one owner that all owners are present at the time the pawn agreement is made.
Read the Agreement
 
All completed pawns have a receipt and agreement or contract.  It is important that you read through the agreement to know the details of the transaction and understand the terms for repayment, interest rates and fees.
Save all Receipts
 
Make sure to keep your contract and all receipts for record. If there is a failure to pay the pawnshop will put your item up for sale and it is important to keep those records in case there is a mistake.

IS HAND SANITIZER BAD FOR YOUR JEWELRY?

With the United States battling a pandemic, we have needed to change so many everyday behaviors to keep our communities safe and healthy.  Aside from increased handwashing, more people are using hand sanitizer at an increased rate while wearing jewelry.  Hand sanitizer is an effective disinfecting solution when it comes to health and safety; however, it is often questioned whether using hand sanitizer could damage clothing or possessions, including jewelry. With the increase in hand sanitizer usage, it’s essential for people who wear rings and other jewelry to be mindful of the effects of disinfecting agents on precious metals and gemstones.
 
How Hand Sanitizer Effects Jewelry
Hand sanitizer is proven to be tough on germs, but it can also be tough on precious metals and jewelry. Sanitizer will not cause damage to jewelry immediately but it will make a serious impact over time. Cleaning products and hand sanitizer cause the shine in gold to fade over time. You might not notice this fading right away, but the gradual effect of hand sanitizer will eventually take its toll and cause your jewelry to fade more rapidly.
How Best to Care For Jewelry During COVID and Flu Season
Parker Pawn and Jewelry has some tips In order to keep your jewelry in the best shape possible while also protecting your health.
Here are some tips for protecting jewelry while using hand sanitizer:
•   Before sanitizing, take off your rings: Take off your jewelry, use your hand sanitizer and then wait for it to dry completely before putting your rings and bracelets back on. This will prevent your jewelry from being exposed to harsh disinfectants while keeping your hands clean and sanitized.
•   Leave jewelry at home: When making a quick trip to the grocery store or running errands, it’s best to leave rings and bracelets at home. This allows you to avoid exposing your jewelry to germs, bacteria, and viruses while running errands.
•   Clean your jewelry: While harsh cleaners can cause damage to jewelry, it’s still important to regularly clean your jewelry. Cleaning jewelry with warm water and dish soap is a great way to keep your jewelry looking great without causing it to fade or become damaged.

Things to Know About Pawn Shop Loans

Pawn shop loans are an option if you need some quick cash. Before you decide to pawn your valuables, understand the pros and cons of pawn shop loans and think about the alternatives. When you take something of value to a pawn shop, chances are you can walk out with some cash. Let’s take a closer look at how pawn shop loans work, and what the benefits and drawbacks are.

How do Pawn Shop loans work?
A pawn shop loan can be a quick way to borrow money because it doesn’t involve a credit check or application process. Your loan amount is based on the value of the item you pawn. If you move forward with a pawn shop loan, you can get the cash right then and there. You’ll typically be required to pay back the full amount of the pawn loan to reclaim your pawned item, though the amount of time you have to repay the loan can vary from state to state. In North Carolina, state laws dictate that pawn shop loan contracts are 30 days, with an additional grace period.

According to the National Pawnbrokers Association, the average pawn shop loan in the U.S. is $150.

Pawn Shop Loan Pros:
• Pawn shop loans can be an attractive option if your credit is rough and you’re not able to take out a traditional loan.
• For people with no bank account or no one to turn to as a cosigner, pawn loans can be a quick source of money and there’s no credit check required.
• Your credit scores won’t be affected if you don’t repay your loan, and you won’t have to worry about getting calls from debt collectors.
• The consequences of not repaying a pawn shop loan are that the pawn shop simply keeps whatever you pawned.

Pawn Shop Loan Cons:
• If you don’t repay your loan on time, the pawn shop can sell your item.
• You won’t get reimbursed if your item is sold for more than your loan amount.
• Some pawn shops also charge additional fees to pay for things like storage, insurance or renewing the loan for a new term.

Parker Pawn & Jewelry loan professionals
Hopefully, you’ll never be in a position where you have to pawn your family’s valuables. But if you find yourself in need of fast cash and think a pawn shop loan is your best option, be sure to contact Parker Pawn & Jewelry loan professionals to further understand all loan terms and conditions.

While Parker Pawn & Jewelry does give customers the option of a traditional loan setup, we are also proud to offer 24 hour loans.

They bring in items of collateral and once we assess those items, we give them a loan for that amount. All a patron has to do in order to take advantage of our no interest 24 hour loan with no fees is to bring back the pawn tickets they receive and the money to repay the loan on the same day, and we return their items of collateral.

Regardless of your financial situation, if you find yourself in need of a loan, give Parker Pawn & Jewelry a call. We work with our customers to ensure they get the right loan for them, with loan terms that satisfy everybody involved.

What Are Your Items Worth?

If you want to pawn an item, whether it is your great-grandfather’s antique pocket watch with an “absolutely amazing story” behind it, or your beloved collection of comic books from your childhood, the only thing that really matters is not your story, but the actual demand for the item in the secondary market. In other words, nothing is worth more than someone is willing to pay.

In pawning, you are trying to raise some cash temporarily to cover an urgent need. So, you take your family treasures to your local pawn shop in the hopes of raising that cash. First, an appraiser will evaluate your item on several points, which may include, but not be limited to:

  • rarity
  • material
  • authenticity
  • demand
  • condition
  • retail price range

Once the deal is struck, and you agree to pawn the item, the dealer will quote you a price based upon a percentage of that retail price, and that is the amount you will be loaned. You’ll be given a specified amount of time to repay the loan and retrieve your item. You will also pay interest, and in some cases, other fees. The amount of interest charged is usually regulated by state laws.

More for your Money

Pawn shops buy a variety of items that have value and what has value will often depend on what resells well in the area where the pawn shop is located. Even so, some items are always in high demand. Here’s a list of the top things you can get paid for at a pawnshop.

Precious Metals – Jewelry is one of the biggest moneymakers in pawnshops. Just as it does elsewhere, jewelry runs the gamut in price, but gold is worth more than silver and precious metal investments can be worth even more.

Tablets – When you already have a computer and a smartphone which you are considering pawning, some brands and models will score you more cash than others.

Power Tools – Power tools consistently have a good resale market. Bosch, DeWalt and Milwaukee are among the most powerful brands, and circular saws, drills, band saws and air compressors are popular items. To get the most money for your tools, ensure they’re in good shape and thoroughly cleaned and degreased before visiting the pawnshop.

Gems – Gold might get all the attention in pawnshop commercials, but don’t forget the diamonds. Pawnshops are interested in buying diamonds due to high demand. Like gold and precious metals, the right diamond or gem could net you four figures.

Firearms – Guns retain their retail value better than most items you’ll find at the pawnshop. You’ll need all the required legal paperwork to pawn a gun, and you’ll want to unload the firearm before arriving at the pawnshop. You also might want to call ahead to make sure the shop is licensed to buy guns.

Before you find yourself pawning items for cash or using them as collateral knowing the best things to pawn can help you strategize. Let Parker Pawn & Jewelry professional associates help you strategize before pawning your valuables. We believe that the more you know, the more confident you will feel about your transaction with us. If you are in the Fayetteville, Hope Mills or Spring Lake areas and you are looking for a pawn shop, look no further than Parker Pawn. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Precious Metals

Gold 

Gold and precious metals make jewelry into beautiful masterpieces to be worn for the world to see. Keep your jewelry beautiful by learning more about the metals that make it that way.

To determine the karat gold used in a piece of jewelry, check its markings, also called its hallmark. This is usually found on the inside of the shank or the underside side of a pendant, earring or bracelet. The traditional hallmark uses the gold purity percentage. Modern hallmarks are simply stamped with the karat weight.

The color of gold is determined by two factors, the type of metal alloys included and the percentage of each metal alloy.

  • Yellow Gold: pure gold mixed with a little silver and copper for a warm look
  • White Gold: pure gold is combined with palladium and silver or with nickel, copper and zinc. Rhodium plating improves whiteness and durability.

White gold is the sturdiest of the colored golds, which is why it’s frequently used in prongs in diamond settings.

  • Rose Gold: pure gold plus copper. The more copper, the redder the metal.
  • Green Gold: yellowish green in appearance, pure gold plus silver

Platinum

Platinum is a silvery, white metal with a soft hue that’s extremely rare and considered more precious than gold. It is much heavier than gold as well and does not tarnish or oxidize. Because of its hardness, the details on intricately engraved or embellished rings look sharper and more precise when done in platinum.

As with other metals, platinum is commonly mixed with other metals when used in jewelry pieces. However, for a piece of jewelry to be labeled as Platinum, it must meet a minimum level of purity. Platinum in jewelry is 90% to 95% pure, which brings out the beauty of diamonds set in platinum engagement rings. Normally, platinum pieces can be identified by a stamp with PLAT.

Sterling Silver

Pure silver, also called fine silver, is relatively soft, very malleable and easily damaged, so it is commonly combined with other metals to produce a more durable product. Sterling silver can range from bright white to grayish white and can have a matte or shiny finish. It is usually combined with other metals such as copper to boost its strength. Sterling Silver must contain at least 92.5% pure silver, which is why it’s stamped .925

Other Metals

Stainless Steel: Shiny and strong, stainless steel rings can be polished to take on many different looks, from matte to chrome.

Titanium: Titanium is a natural element and can be black, silver, grey or white in color. It is the hardest natural metal in the world. Though it is lightweight, titanium is the strongest and most scratch resistant metals available for wedding rings, but it cannot be resized once made.

Tungsten Carbide: a steel gray, white or black metal whose strength and high melting point makes Tungsten a favorite in the arms industry. It is harder than gold alloys and is hypoallergenic. It is the most popular alternative metal for men’s wedding bands, but cannot be resized.

Palladium: One of the rarest metals in the world, Palladium is a member of the platinum group of metals. These metals are referred to as noble metals due to their superior ability to withstand corrosion and oxidation.

Cobalt: Made from a highly durable alloy, cobalt is 4x harder than platinum, but is less dense. Cobalt alloy is a bright white metal, giving it the appearance of platinum. Because of its natural hardness, cobalt jewelry is extremely scratch, chip and corrosion resistant. It is also hypoallergenic, making it an ideal choice for those with sensitive skin.

Tantalum: This is the newest addition to contemporary metals and is highly scratch resistant and hypo allergic. Naturally a blue-grey metal, tantalum is 99% pure and coated with a ceramic glaze that gives the metal a matte black finish.
