Are you looking to get rid of some gold that you found in your house?  Maybe you have a watch from your grandfather that no longer works but that you’d like to have swapped for its gold value.  At Cash Express, we’re here to help you get the most value out of your gold pieces.  We know that you need to find a reputable pawn shop and that sometimes this can be a length process.  We pride ourselves on offering the highest in customer satisfaction and we do whatever we can to ensure that you walk out feeling like you got your money’s worth.

If you’re getting ready to sell your gold, there are a few tips that can help you get it ready.  For one, make sure that you don’t clean or polish it.  Although this might seem counterintuitive, it really makes a difference when it comes to the appearance of your piece.  It’s fine if you want to wipe off some of the dust with a paper towel, but it’s important for you to make sure that you do not polish it.  Sometimes polishing can actually take away some of the gold and this results in a lower gold weight as well as a lower overall value.  There’s no point in decreasing the value of your piece, so make sure that you take the necessary steps to preserve it. 

Another tip is to do your research on both the type of piece that you have as well as the kind of gold that it is made of.  You want to make sure that when you come into our shop you are aware of what the item is worth and that you have a good understanding of what other pawn shops might offer in terms of competition.  You obviously want to get the best offer possible, and at Cash Express, we want to do what we can to make that happen. 

Another helpful tip to get your gold ready to sell is to check out any sort of specific markings that it might have on it.  This lets you know if your piece might be worth more or less than the going rate.  If you have a significant weight loss in the gold area that is missing, then you can expect to receive less than the going rate.  At Cash Express, we will do whatever we can to try and give you the best price available.
