Q?

What is a Pawn loan?

A.

A pawn transaction is a collateral loan for all intents and purposes.

Technically, a pawn is a transaction where an individual sells an item to a pawn broker an has the exclusive right to repurchase within a certain time frame that can be extended at the individuals discretion by paying service fees.

 

Q?

Should I pawn or sell my item(s)?

A.

Pawns are best suited as a short-term solution. A rule of thumb that we use is if that if you will be in a financial position to reclaim your pawn within 90 days, then pawning is a good option.

If you are looking to maximize your payout then you might more interested in selling your item as selling it will net you approx 25% more money than pawning. We treat each case individually so please feel free to contact us for a consultation.

Q?

A.

This is sometimes a difficult question to answer over the phone or via email.

Please contact us with as much information as you have via phone or email and we'll do our best to provide you with an estimate. Sometimes estimates over phone or email are just not possible and we would have to ask you to bring the item in for valuation.

Q?

¡Amigo! ¿Cuanto estan pagando el gramo de oro? / How much are you paying for gold?

A.

Many factors play into the price we can pay for your gold like the market price, karat, adjusting for under-karated gold, quantity you're selling, stones set into the gold and so on. We can only provide gold buying quotes in the store and cannot give any kind of estimation over the phone.

We do not buy unrefined gold such as gold nuggets, alluvial gold, gold dust, etc.

Q?

What are the terms pawning?

A.

At Gables Pawn & Jewelry, all of our pawns are for 60 days and can be extended for an indefinite amount of time so long as the customer is paying the monthly service fees which are typically 10% of the principle amount.

For example, John pawns his watch for $1,000 at a service charge rate of 10%. John can buy back his watch for $1,000 plus $100 within 30 days. At 60 days John would pay $1,200 to reclaim his watch. John can also pay the service charges before 60 days are up to extend his pawn for anther 30 days by paying $100 or another 60 days by paying $200.
