If you are in need of a few extra bucks, and you have a bike that you no longer use regularly, then you could end up making a decent amount of money by selling it to your local pawn shop. At South Bay Jewelry & Loan we buy bikes and we would love to give you top- price. Keep reading to learn what you can do to get the best possible price, then stop by or give us a call at (310) 371-4571.
Why Let Your Bike Gather Dust When You Could Make a Pretty Penny?
All too often, people who have not ridden their bike in years end up letting it just gather dust in the garage without even thinking about selling it. If we like your bike, we can buy it from you outright, or offer a fair collateral loan that will be based on how much your bike is likely to resell for.
If you want the bike back, the loans are great because interest starts at just 2% and you can get the bike back once you have your money. They are a popular option when a surprise bill comes up or the money in a pay period just doesn’t last as long as it should.
Some of Our Favorite Brands of Bikes
As you likely know, the quality of bikes ranges from basic street bikes to high-end racing bikes. Some are worth just $50 while others are worth $1,000. We will buy or issue you a loan on just about any bike, if it is in good shape and has a somewhat reasonable resale value. That said, there are some brands we like better than others.
If you have a Shimano, Trek, Cannondale, Giant, Merida, Kona, Scott, or specialized bike, we are likely to be more excited. If you are not sure if your bike is likely to get a high price from us, you can always call and we can give you a basic estimate over the phone.
Follow These Steps if You Want the Best Price
In the event you want to get the best price for your bike, we recommend that you take the steps you can to make its value obvious. This can include cleaning it and making minor repairs that are needed. If you are in possession of any documentation about the bike, such as a receipt or anything that can show us the value, bring it. The more documentation you can bring us, the better the price we will be able to get for it and the better the price we can give you for it.
