What Kind of Items Do You Accept For Pawning?
This question can vary in answers, (Feel Free To Call and Ask About Your Particular Product, However We Do Not Give Prices Over The Phone) We normally only take products with major name brands, younger than 5 years in age, and must come with all the original accessories it came with when brand new inside sealed packaging. (Packaging does not need to be included). However, this doesn't apply to all products.
How Long Is My Loan Valid For?
We give all loans 4 months and 10 days with the interest going up on the 3rd month and again on the last 10 days.
What Will Happen To My Item If I Cannot Pay The Redemption Fee In Time Of The 4 Months And 10 Days?
You are free to pay the interest only, which will extend your loan for another 4 months and 10 days, in the case you cannot pay the interest, we will work with you on giving you more time, however, a time will eventually come where we will no longer be able to hold it and must sell the product in order to make the money we originally loaned you back. Just make sure to always call us before your expiration date for us to be able to help!
What Will Happen To My Item If It Passes Its Expiration Date?
Once your item reaches the end of its 4 month period, it will expire and we will send you a final 10 day notice, where you are still free to pay the interest or redeem your item(s). If you miss your 10 day grace period, the item will foreclose and become property of The Palmdale Pawn Shop - The Happy Hocker, however we do hold Jewelry for about a month before selling, in hopes their original owner will act quick. All other items such as Laptops, Computers, Tools, Etc will have till the Friday, the week of foreclosure. If you return on time you will have a "First/Last" warning, to pay the interest one last time, however the next time an item of yours forecloses, you will have to pay the full amount to redeem your item, but you will be free to re-pawn it again right after the transaction, to get your money back.
