If you want to pawn a gun, you'll likely find it's one of the easiest cash loans you've ever taken out. Our knowledgeable staff will help you with each and every step of gun pawning, but if you want to be prepared, just remember these five simple tips when you come in.
1. Pawn a Gun at Chesapeake Pawn & Gun
Your local pawn shop will likely allow you to pawn a gun, but this doesn't mean you should stop at the first pawn shop you come across. When it comes to anything and everything related to guns, Chesapeake Pawn and Gun is the superior pawn shop to work with. This is true whether you're buying, selling, or pawning guns.
Why? Well, if you check out our online store, you'll see that we have a much bigger inventory of both new and used guns than the average pawn shop has. We aren't just a firearms dealer; it's our top focus here in our store. We help people with buys, sales, repairs, and firearm transfers all day, every day. To say that we are experienced with guns is an understatement. We'll be faster and more accurate with valuing your gun, whether you bring in a new Glock or an older Beretta. Because we know how much your gun is worth, and because we grant our loans based on the collateral value of your gun, you'll generally be able to borrow the most cash when you pawn your gun to us.
2. Bring Your Government-Issued ID
When you visit the best pawn shop and gun store in Chesapeake, Chesapeake Pawn and Gun, we ask that you bring your government-issued ID along with you. You won't be able to take your pawn loan out without it, even if we've worked with you before. We're required by state and federal law to be very careful about this, both as pawnbrokers and gun dealers. Bring your driver's license and your gun, and you'll be ready to take out your pawn loan and get your fast cash.
3. Bring More Than One Firearm
You can pawn just one firearm at a time if you want to. If you're hoping to borrow even more cash and have multiple firearms, though, don't hesitate to bring them all in! You can get a pawn loan on multiple guns at one time. This will help you greatly increase the amount of money you can borrow, and you can handle everything at one time!
4. Put Safety First
In a reputable gun store like ours, safety is -- and should be -- the most important thing. No matter what type of gun you're bringing in to pawn, make sure it's unloaded and that the safety is on. Please handle the firearm with care while you're in the store. This is for your safety, as well as everyone else's! At Chesapeake Pawn and Gun, responsible gun handling is something that we take very seriously!
5. Keep Your Pawn Ticket
When you pawn your gun, you'll be given a pawn ticket. It's a good idea to look it over before you leave; then, if you have any questions about your loan -- like how much you have to pay back, and what your repayment date is -- then make sure that you ask one of our friendly staff. Since your pawn ticket has a lot of useful information on it -- and since it makes it much easier for us to look up your loan when you come back in to repay -- we suggest that you hold on to it.
Taking out a loan to cover an unexpected expense has never been easier. Visit Chesapeake Pawn and Gun today, and ask us about pawning your firearms. You can also ask us about our other services, too; we offer the best prices on pre-owned firearms if you're in the market, or we'll buy your gun if you don't want it back. You can even ask about our on-site gunsmith services; you can have your gun repaired here, even if you didn't buy it from us!
