Pawn loans are a quick and easy way to borrow money without a credit check or hassle. Loans are based on the value of your collateral, not your credit rating or pay schedule. A typical pawn loan has a term length of 30 days, plus a 30-day grace period. If you cannot pay your loan back in full, we offer extensions to give you extra time. You may also choose to surrender your collateral as payment in full.
If you are unable to pay back your loan in full on its due date, you may get a renewal or extension, meaning that you pay the interest that has accrued on your loan in full and the new due date is set. The principal loan amount remains the same, as does the interest rate. If you’d like, when you pay the interest, you can pay additional money down on the principal. This will allow you to renew the loan for a lesser amount. You may extend the length of your loan as many times as you wish.
Most of our customers repay their pawn loans and pick up their items. If a customer chooses not to repay the loan, the collateral items are forfeited and are accepted as payment in full. Some customers though choose to sell their unwanted items rather than get a loan.
The loan amount is based on the current value of your item. Item’s condition, market value, and our ability to resell the item all play a role in determining the price. Our highly trained associates will use all research tools at hand to evaluate the item’s value and get you the cash you need or the most they can.
We also test all items for their performance. General merchandise is visually inspected and then tested by plugging it in and turning it on. Accessories such as remote controls and original cables all add to the value of an item.
Absolutely! Pawning the same item twice actually saves time because we know the item since we have accepted it before to help get you money in tight situations. We will review to make sure that everything is still working with it if it is an electronic device, but you will be saving us time by using the same item twice for a pawn.
This all depends on the item. It may help to understand the difference between selling and pawning your item. Once you bring it to Florida Pawn, our experienced professionals will inspect it and place a value with it. If you sell it you will take the cash, walk away, and the item(s) will be ours to resell. If you wish to pawn it for money, you will have to accept the terms and conditions, and we will get you the cash with the expectation that you will make the payments and collect the item(s) when finished. Should you decide not to make the payments, we will then keep the collateral for reselling purposes.

Absolutely! Gold has maintained its value throughout the years, unlike its paper currency counterparts. The value of gold has actually gone up in the past while the U.S. dollar dropped. When the dollar starts to drop in value, traditionally people have entrusted their wealth of gold. It tends to perform in an opposing manner. Gold, as with any other investment in your portfolio, has had hard times, but in the long term, it has held its value longer than any other paper investment.
Simply bring in your gold items to our Hollywood or Margate, FL locations and our team of specialists will value them and provide you with an estimate based on the current going rates for gold on the national scale. If you agree to this estimate, Florida Pawn will then hand you cash for your items.

You should also pay attention to the collector value vs the bullion value to make sure you are purchasing for the proper investment strategy.
