There is no upper limit to the amount we can loan you, but the amount offered will
be dependant on the value of the item(s) you bring in to use as security. The amount
offered will be similar to our normal buying price for such item(s). For larger amounts
multiple items can be used either on one contract or multiple contracts, this can
helpful when redeeming your items Top
5) What happens to my stuff?
The item(s) you use as security will remain with us, either in our safes or secure
stock rooms until you redeem them or the contract on them expires. After that the
item(s) will be put up for sale or go to auction. Top
6) How long is the loan for?
Our Buyback option is up to 28 days, our Pawnbroking contacts are up to 7 months
and are regulated by the Consumer Credit act 1974. Top
7) What happen to my item(s) if I don't come back?
If you use our Buyback option after the 28 day period has expired the item(s) are
simply put out for sale as we would for any other stock purchase.
If you use our pawnbroking service and the contract is not redeemed we will dispose
of your item(s) on your behalf for a fair market price to recover the amount you
borrowed. If the amount realised from such sales (after deducting sale costs) is
more than the amount you owe at the date of the sale, we will notify you of any surplus,
which you can collect from the store. If the item(s) sale does not realise enough
to clear the balance outstanding we will not ask you for the difference, it will
be written off ,this would have no impact on your credit rating and you would be
free of the contract with us. You would be welcome to use our services again. Top
1) How old do I have to be?
To use any of our services you must be 18 and over.
2) What ID, if any do I need?
You will need some form of ID, photo ID may be required for some services. Top
3) What if I have a bad credit rating or a CCJ?
We do not need to perform any personal income or credit checks and using any of our
services will not affect your credit rating. Top
15) Can I make monthly payments towards my loan?
Yes, there is an option to make part payments, but only on the pawnbroking service.
14) What if I lose my contract/forms?
If you loose your Buyback form then come in with two forms of ID. If you loose your
Pawnbroking contract and the amount you borrowed is over £75, then come into store.
We will issue you an affidavit which you will need to get signed and stamped by a
solicitor. They may make a charge for this service. Once you have a signed and stamped
affidavit return to store and we will use this as your contract. This must all happen
on the same day. Top
13) Can my friend or family member pick up my item(s)?
8) If I use the pawnbroking service do I have to come in every month to pay the interest?
No, you pay the amount borrowed plus the interest to date when you come to collect
your item(s). Top

to purchase any item in our store. Top

If you are getting close to the end of the contract date and are worried you are
going to loose your item(s) then please phone or come in and discuss any further
options that may be available to you. Top
11) Why do Buybacks and Pawnbroking?
Pawnbroking is used for item(s) that will hold their value over the course of the
loan like gold jewellery and watches, Buybacks are used for item(s) that tend to
depreciate much quicker, like mobiles, game consoles, televisions. Top
12) Are my item(s) covered by your insurance?
No, you have to make your own arrangements for insurance or check with your own contents
insurers to see if your own policy will cover them. Top

No, we would always require some kind of security against the loan. Top
