It’s a new year and a time for new beginnings — how will you make 2013 different? One simple way you can get a fresh start is to clear out some of the stuff you no longer use or need. It’s amazing how much better you’ll feel with a little extra space in your closet or your garage!

And you don’t just have to chuck it all out to the curb. Some of your unused items are still worth something, but they aren’t doing you any good in storage. Bring the best pieces to pawn shops in Eureka California like ours and you can make some extra cash as you give yourself some breathing room back at home.

You can get cash for old coins, musical instruments, tools, gold jewelry, diamond jewelry and TVs that you no longer use. If you aren’t sure if what you want to sell is something our pawn shop will take, check out the Eureka Trading website or give us a call at 443-2000 before coming down. This can be especially helpful if what you want to sell is bulky or heavy — we will need to see the item in person to make a proper evaluation, but call ahead to see if we are interested first and you can save yourself a little time.

Sort Your Unneeded Stuff

Sometimes just looking at a big mess of stuff is intimidating. How do you begin tackling something like a full closet or an overstuffed storage unit? You have a few options: You can set aside a whole day or half day to sort through it all at once, or you can start by taking out a few pieces at a time. What you decide to do is up to you, but you will generally be more satisfied if you can get to all of it in one session You don’t have to get rid of all of it at once, but you should decide what will stay and what will go. Then you can plan the next steps for selling what is valuable, donating low-value items and trashing the rest.

Prepare Your Items for Sale

Even though your stuff has been in storage, is it still in great condition? Here are a few tips for getting your stuff ready to sell to pawn shops in Eureka California:

  • Give your items a good dusting and gently clean off surface dirt. Make your items look their best before you sell and you are more likely to get a better price.
  • Ensure all components are together. Power cords, remotes, peripherals, instruction manuals, boxes — whatever came with the item and you still have, pack it together so you can easily bring it in.
  • Do a little research online. If you want to get cash for old coins or some other item, get an idea of what they are worth before taking them to pawn shops in Eureka California. Pawn shops need to resell items, so they can’t give you full value, but they can give you cash upfront and save you the hassle of trying to sell it yourself.

Our Eureka trading website is always updating with more ways for you to make cash for your unused stuff or get a pawn loan when you really need, so check back often!
