How does a Pawn Work?

Gold & Silver

At Pawn Central, you use the items you already own to obtain a short-term loan to meet your financial needs. Once you pay back your loan, you can pick up your item(s).

Benefits of pawning with us:

  • You have the opportunity to get your valuable back.
  • Instead of selling your valuables and getting cash one time, you can get a Pawn Central loan whenever you need cash.
  • Getting a loan from us will never hurt your credit.

Pawn Central stores are more helpful than a bank because you can borrow small amounts, we don’t need financial information, proof of employment and you never have to fill out a loan application. All you need is a valid form of government issued identification to receive cash immediately.

Was helped by a spiffy youngster by the name of Thomas Long. Dressed all professional, looking fly. Gave me a good deal on an N64 I have been looking for. Very professional and helpful 10/10 would let date my unborn child.

Absolutely amazing customer service . The staff is very knowledgeable and very helpful. Being new in town I was not sure of a lot of items or their value. They were very efficient in helping me with everything I needed. Because of their amazing customer service I brought my stepdad in four days later, and he purchased a wedding set for my mother. This shop helped my family make one of our biggest memories a success. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to pawn or sell an item or purchase an item of great quality with a business that stands behind its work . Marisol was by far the best employee I have ever Encountered as far as knowledge. I love you this place !
