Why pawnbroking<br /><br />
could benefit you…

The origins of pawnbroking can be traced back over 3,000 years to the Chinese and it is pawnbroking we have to thank for the discovery of the Americas. Did you know Christopher Columbus’ voyage was funded largely by the proceeds from pawning Queen Isabella of Spain's jewels? The industry as we know it today, however, can be traced back to fifteenth century Italy when the noble Medici family was a dominant financial power.

Today's pawnbroking customers range widely. Certainly, they are ordinary people, who may wish to borrow a sum of money against an item of value for a short period of time.

If you were to walk into a pawnbroker’s shop today you could be forgiven for thinking that you had just walked into your local bank or building society. Pawnbroking is now a serious alternative to using the services provided by the High Street bank. Customers realise that borrowing money against goods they already own can be an affordable alternative to a bank overdraft or other type of loan.
