Get a collateral loan from a pawn shop and receive instant cash to get your business up and running. Bring in a valuable item to use as collateral and receive a loan based on its value. Get your item back from the pawn shop as soon as you’ve repaid the loan amount.

Anything that can fetch a high value but that you aren’t necessarily interested in selling. Recent model electronics like laptops, cell phones, and video game consoles. Especially rare or highly collectible items you wouldn’t otherwise part with (that autographed Star Wars poster, for example).

As an alternative to loans, you might simply sell unwanted items to pawn shops for cash. Selling items outright means you won’t have to pay back a loan. If your best collateral items are things you use regularly (like a laptop or phone), choosing sales over a pawn loan means you won’t have to go without them while you raise funds.


Used (but functional) electronics: TVs, smartphones, laptops, tablets Jewelry and watches: antique or vintage, rare gemstones, designer brands, highquality diamonds, gold, silver Tools: power drills, complete tool sets (wrenches, screwdrivers, etc.)


There’s no rule that says you can’t use both a collateral pawn loan and money from sold items to fund your business plans—you’re in charge! Try to build up as much non-loan funding as you can by selling valuable items first, then look for loan collateral (this way, you minimize the amount of loan debt).


Make sure the pawn shop you choose is reputable and that the staff know how to properly evaluate items. – At GEM Pawnbrokers, employees are certified by both the Jewelers of America (JA) and the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Start with a rough idea of what your item(s) might be worth and be willing to compare offers from different shops.
