You can be certain that you will always get a fair and honest assessment at our Pawn King stores – our pawnbrokers stay up-to date with market values and resell prices. When you bring in your merchandise, one of our knowledgeable staff members will walk you through the assessment process. You can be sure you are in good hands with any of our pawnbrokers, who use the latest research tools and strive to get you the maximum amount of cash for your personal property. Your valuables will be appraised based on a number of factors, but overall the evaluation process varies depending on the type of item up for pawn. For example, rings are evaluated much differently than electronics or used tools. For a gold ring, we would assess the percentage of gold (karats), whereas for used tools we would test functionality, wear, etc.
