How do they value your items?
How does the appraisal process work? Does it fully describe your item? If not you may not be receiving the full value you could potentially receive. Vasco has a multi faceted appraisal process which, when aided by our experts, provides a full view of the item allowing us to provide you the best offers you will see out there.
Will your items be safe and taken care of?
Where are your objects being stored? Are they fully insured? Are they being taken care of properly? If any of the above answers are no then steer clear of the pawnshop. Items should be secured in state of the art facilities and safes and be insured for double the amount its worth, then returned to you as clean or cleaner than when you brought it in. Vasco is happy to provide all of that and more.
