Do Pawn Shops Quote Over the Phone San Jose

Dollar Bills

With all the new technology available to us today, we will work with you to get you a quote over the phone. Yes, over the phone, saving you an unnecessary trip into the shop, in the situation you get a lower quote than what you thought your item was worth.

Working with pawn brokers over the phone will also give you an opportunity to think about the offer and decide if this is what you would like to do in the privacy of your own home.

Prepare to make that call to us…

First – Describe for us what you have.

What do you know about the item? Is it in working condition? Does it have any damage on it? What is the brand? What condition is it in? Is it in its original packaging and never used? All these things will help you get an accurate appraisal over the phone and one you will be pleased with.

Second – Take Pictures

When pawn brokers are looking at an item, the smallest detail (a date, scratch, insignia, etc.) can make the difference in how the item is valued. For example, if you say you have a “silver dollar” this could be worth a lot or a little. An 1893 S Morgan Silver Dollar is worth $550,000 compared to a 1922 Peace Silver Dollar in Average condition, valued at $32.00.

A few quality pictures will help us know the difference and get you the most money for your item.

In the situation, you aren’t able to get us pictures we will do our best to give you an idea of what we can offer and can build on that when you bring the item in.

Third – Take a Minute to Decide
