We’ve all had that moment where we were going through old possessions and pulled out something truly outdated: a collection of VHS tapes from the ‘80s, a Walkman or portable CD player from the ‘90s—and then there are all of those old gaming systems!
If you’re like many people and don’t even have the means of using your old devices, you might be looking to sell them. After all, someone else could possibly have a use for your old Xbox, or might want some replacement cables for one of their older items, such as laptops or cell phones.
But how do you know if your electronics are worth bringing in to Sydmor’s Jewelry and Pawn Shop in Barberton, OH? Here are a few tips to help get you started.
Try for good quality
Even if your device is old, it could still be very useful to the right person. However, anything that is in terrible condition should probably stay home. Most old items will naturally have a bit of wear and tear—after all, they were used and loved for many years! However, excessive ripping, denting and other damage can diminish the value, and make the item less helpful to a potential buyer. Pick out the items that you could imagine yourself buying, and do a little cleaning if necessary. For example, wipe down electronics, rewind tapes and make sure that any games you’re selling are actually in their cases.
Do some research
There are countless other people around the world selling older items to make a little extra cash, happy that someone else will give these items a second life. That’s why, at Sydmor’s Jewelry and Pawn Shop, we accept a wide range of products, and we have lots of customers who can use your second-hand items! If you want to get an idea of what types of items are most popular, hop on some sites like eBay and Craigslist, and do a little browsing. See what condition those items are in, check out any questions posed by potential buyers and make a note of what the items usually go for in a bidding situation.
Ask about prices
Make sure to take your electronics to a reputable store, such as Sydmor’s Jewelry and Pawn Shop in Barberton, OH, to be sure you are getting a good price. Some less trustworthy businesses will try to cheat you out of money, insisting your items aren’t good enough and pressuring you into taking a deal before you have time to think about it. We are open and fair with all of our pricing, whether you’re selling or buying, and we’re happy to answer all of your questions.
It’s always a great time to bring in your old electronics, so gather up your items and come see us! We’ll give you a good price for your old electronics and other second-hand items, and make sure you are happy from start to finish. We look forward to helping you unload some of your old clutter—and make a little money in the process!
