Your Pawn Shop Value Guide

Edward Adams

When pawning an item, the main question on your mind will be how much you're going to get for it. Many people will put a very high value on an item when pawning it, but at the end of the day, you should remember that a pawn shop will want to be able to make a profit from the item in case you default on the payment. It helps to have an idea of how much you might get for an item before you visit a pawn shop.

Small Electronics

Small electronics such as laptop computers, gaming machines and high-end mobile devices are quite popular pawn items. Demand for such items is almost always high and they can be quite costly. The price you can get for a gaming machine depends on a few factors. If your system has all the required parts plus extras, you can get a good price. If it has a large number of games, this can also be a boost. The age of the system also matters, with newer systems netting a lot more money. 

Laptops can vary wildly in price depending on how good the hardware is and how recently it was manufactured. Macbooks are often in demand, even if they are several years old. A recent iPad can also fetch a good amount of money if it has cellular capabilities.

Household Electronics

Household electronics are also popular in pawnshops. A television can be a valuable pawn item if it's in the 26 to 46-inch range. Modern ultra HD and 4k televisions are the most wanted televisions at pawn shops. You'll want to check that the pawn shop has enough space to properly store a larger TV before you offer one up. Many pawn shops will not deal with older TV models due to lack of demand.


It's much harder to put a price on jewelry due to the many options available. Pawn shops are mostly interested in the value of the metal, therefore, only the scrap value of the jewelry is considered. One large diamond will fetch more than a number of smaller diamonds. However, there are other factors that will affect the diamond's value; e.g., clarity.

You should also consider that the price of gold can fluctuate significantly in the market on a daily basis. This can have a positive or negative effect.

To get the best value for an item at your local pawn shop, ensure that it's in the best possible condition. Even something as simple as cleaning an item can raise its price by a noticeable amount.
