The dishwasher is broken again, your daughter needs money for her school field trip, and rent is due next week. When it seems like there are more bills than usual, and you just need a little extra cash – a pawnshop may provide much needed financial relief. Most people know pawnshops are a great place to sell your items, but they can also be a great place to get a small loan using your hobby as collateral.
While most may jump to pawning motorcycles, cars, or electronics, it may come as a surprise how much your professional hobby equipment, like fishing gear, is worth. Pawn Shops in Salt Lake City are a key to getting a good deal for pawning or selling your fishing gear. The Great Lakes area, the popular fishing holes, makes fishing gear a high demand. That means more cash for you!
The value of your fishing gear depends on the make, model, and condition of the item. Just like handguns or golf clubs, certain brands carry their value better than others do. A high value fishing pole would be a custom pole by a highly desirable builder, more of a boutique or exclusive rod than you can buy at Walmart or even Cabela's. Other factors may increase value to a fishing pole such as age or notoriety if you can prove that someone famous used the fishing pole, if it was used in an award-winning catch, or if it comes from an era that carries significant value, you may increase the worth of the item.
In addition to the pole, if your fishing gear has any customizations or accessories, that may add value to the overall sale. For example, fishing reels can sometimes be worth more than the pole they are on. Sportsmans Pawn Shop may be willing to increase the price of the bundle if you have a few accessories that draw in buyers.
Our pawn shop work on two fronts: pawning or selling. When you sell an item to our pawn shop, it is just like selling your item to anyone else. You hand over the item, they give you the money, and the deal is done. The likelihood of you ever recovering your item is slim to none. A pawn works like a collateral loan, you bring in an item of value, and the pawn shop will loan you the money with the understanding that your item is returned when the loan is repaid.
Whenever you go into our pawn shop, take as much information as you can. Bring pictures of your latest catch, show the gear in motion, document what type of pole it is, or who made it. Anything that is expensive, noteworthy, or particularly valuable should be pointed out so the pawnshop owner can evaluate everything and offer you a fair price.
If you don't find what you're looking for here that doesn't mean that we don't have or accept it.
