Pawn Instruments Vs. Sell Instruments
When you sell an instrument, that means that once there is a transfer of cash for that item, it is no longer yours. And that you are willing to part with it permanently. However, when you pawn instruments, you are able to utilize the value that it retains, and secure a 90 day cash loan within just minutes. In addition, for the duration of the pawn loan, we will keep your valuable instrument safe and secure in our facility. When the loan is satisfied, we will retrieve your violin and case, and return it to you, in the same condition as the day you brought it in.
Assessments to Sell or Pawn Instruments
Whether you sell or pawn instruments, the assessment process does not vary. At North Phoenix Pawn, our associate will examine the aesthetic appeal of your instrument, and have to consider if there are any scuffs or marks that could affect its value. Next, it is plugged in, and confirmed that everything is in good working order, and then refer to the current market value of the same make, model and features of the item. After that, our pawnbroker will present our cash offer to you. Our offers to pawn instruments to our pawn shop are almost the same amount as selling them outright.
Tips to Increase Your Cash Offer:
- Bring your musical instrument into North Phoenix Pawn in its best possible condition.
- Make sure that you have all the accessories it came with, and bring it in its case to store it in.
- If you still have the receipt or certificates of authentication for the instrument, bring them with you as well.
If our cash offer is more than the cash you need, we do advise that you only take the amount you need. Because the more you borrow, the more you will pay in interest that accrues.
