At Mr. Deals, you can pawn just about anything of value! The best things to pawn are small items because they will have a lower storage fee for your pawn loan. Things like...
These 6 items are the best because of their small sizes and, therefore, lower fees.
Other great items for pawning are power tools, video game consoles (like PlayStation 4s, XBOX Ones, and Nintendo Switches), laptops, Macs, and TVs.
This varies from shop to shop, but at Mr. Deals we have pawned just about anything you can think of as long as it has resale value. From motorcycles and laptops to vintage matchbook collections and guitars, Mr. Deals has a wide range of expertise and experience in just about everything. Currently we do not do deal with firearms.
Pawn shops will always buy precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum. These can come in the form of bars, scrap metal, or old jewelry. Diamonds are another thing that pawnbrokers will always buy.
Other items that are virtually always in high demand are popular video games, popular video game consoles, phones, laptops, TVs, and other popular electronics. These things can usually be resold pretty quickly so pawn shops love to buy them.
Don’t borrow more than you need! For example, if your pawn shop offers you $600 for a diamond ring but you only really need $300, take a $300 loan instead of the full $600 because then your fees will be lower.
If you’re in a really bad spot and you’re not sure if you’re going to be able to pay back your loan, you will be paid more money if you outright sell your item. However, if you just need $300 to cover an emergency bill and your paycheck is coming in next Friday, then you’ll be better off taking the low cost loan.
Monday to Saturday: 10am to 7pm.
