Three Advantages Of Pawnbroker Loans

Posted in News by Mallard Jewellers on January 14th 2019
There are numerous different ways to borrow money in our 21st century society. With pay-day-loans, guarantor loans, loans from your bank, and more to choose from, why should you choose to borrow money from a pawnbroker? What are the advantages of using a pawnbroking loan service?

What Is A Pawnbroking Loan

For those unaware of how loaning money from a pawnbroker works. This is a special type of short term loan (usually a 7 month contract) which is secured against items such as gold, silver, or diamond jewellery, or other items such as quality watches. The amount of money that can be loaned will depend on the value of the item or items which is/are provided as security.

Three Advantages Of Pawnbroker Loans

  • Bad Credit Rating? No Worries
    As this style of loan is secured against an item, it doesn’t matter if you have a bad credit rating. If you fail to repay the loan, the item (or items) will be sold in order to repay the outstanding amount. However, it’s important to note that if the proceeds of the sale are greater than the amount of money due under the loan, these monies will be repaid to you.
  • A Quick Way To Get A Loan
    A pawn load is a quick way to make a loan, many pawnbrokers will provide a confidential service with minimal paperwork and no appointment. The amount of money you can loan will depend on the item you are pawning, however if you choose to take out a pawnbroking loan from Mallard Jewellers, you could borrow from £10 to £20,000 using a variety of different items as security, including gold jewellery, diamonds, or prestige watches such as Rolex, Cartier, and Breitling.
  • You Can Make Payments At Any Time
    Whilst the typical pawn loan contract is usually 7 months long, you can make payments of any amount at any time. After you have made your final payment to repay the loan, you’ll receive your item (or items) back.

Things To Remember

  • Make Sure The Pawnbroker Is A Member Of The NPA
    The National Pawnbrokers Association is an organisation that promotes pawnbroking best practice, representing 97% of the pawnbroking trade and teaches members how to be compliant with all rules and procedures. Pawnbroking is a part of the credit industry and as such it is regulated alongside banks and other lenders, however the NPA provides a safeguard with a code of conduct to promote best practice. 
  • Check The Lender’s Permissions Number
    Pawnbroker loans are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority for consumer credit activities and as such require authorisation. Before you make any enquiries regarding any loans, make sure that the pawnbroker in question is an authorised pawnbroker.

  • Remember, If You Fail To Repay, Your Item(s) Will Be Sold
    It is very important that you repay your loan, as if you are unable to repay, your item(s) will be sold in order to cover the amount that is outstanding. Additionally, make sure that you keep track of your receipt, however if you lose it; inform the pawnbroker as soon as possible.

Interested In A Loan? Don’t Forget Two Forms Of ID

If you are interested in a loan, in addition to needing to be over the age of 18, you will also need to provide two forms of identification in order to prove who you are and where you live. These two forms of ID could be items such as a driving licence, a passport, a bank letter, or a council tax bill.
