Looking to sell an item and want to know what to expect from the pawn shop. I am sure that you are aware that you will be taking a huge loss, but just how much of a loss will you be taking? Most pawn shops will give you between 25% and 50% of the retail value. Depending on the item, that can be a huge loss. In addition, because of the reduced price, you may not get enough money to meet your financial needs.

There is another way to get the money that you need and keep your property. Instead of pawning, consider a cash loan. It can give you the money that you need and the fees may be less than the loss that you take from pawning your stuff. Either way, it does not cost you anything to get a quote so why not let Loan Monkey help you. Go to the short loan form and get your quote now.

Top 3 Pawn Shop Value Estimators

As promised, here is my list of the top three estimators on the web. I took a look at all three websites and this is my opinion of them.

  1. PawnBat
    The best choice for an online calculator in my opinion. This calculator let you get values without signing up for anything. I test ran a 500GB PS4 in good condition and got a value of $42 to $70. That is a pretty big loss off of retail value but is standard in the industry.
  2. PawnOffer
    This website is a little less clear at where to go to get your quote, the layout is not that great. Got a quote for a PS4 and it did not ask for information like hard drive size or condition. They gave a value of $89 to $118 and then asked for you to sign in to send your quote to pawn shops. I find the price high, perhaps they are more interested in getting you to sign up.
  3. PawnGuru
    This website requires you to go through a lengthy process of detailing your item and then you submit it to receive offers. I did not submit a PS4 on this website because I did not want to create a fake listing and give them trouble. If you are looking to sell your item to an online pawn shop, this might be a good option for you. If you are just looking to arm yourself with knowledge before visiting a brick and mortar pawn shop, this is not the place for you.
