Alpha Pawn frequently asked questions and policies.

How does a pawn loan work?
Customers bring in an item of value, and the pawnbroker offers a loan based on a percentage of the item’s estimated value. The pawnbroker then keeps the item until the customer repays the loan with interest and any additional fees that may apply.

What if I have bad credit?
To Alpha Pawn someone without credit isn’t a ‘bad person.’ They are just like anyone else that needs a little cash to get them through certain times. We will make you a loan on your items if you have bad credit, or no credit.

How much money can I get for my item?
Our experienced staff bases pawn loan amounts on the value of your item. That means the current appraised value, the condition of your item and the ability to sell the item.
Can a pawnshop sell my pawned item?
A pawnbroker is not able to sell a pawned item until the borrower fails to redeem or renew their pawn loan at the end of the contracted period.
