Sell Us Your Gold and Silver ! Cash on the spot !
If you sell your gold or silver to someone else without hearing our offer, you will probably lose money!
There are very, very few licensed Precious Metals Dealers in the Charlottesville/Albemarle County area. Precious Metals Licenses require background checks on persons with the company, extensive record keeping and reporting to the police department, as well as a requirement to hold the merchandise for a set period of time. Not every gold buyer is equal. It pays to shop around. Do your homework. Most gold buyers count on you not knowing what your gold is worth.Many are staffed by people who are not experts and have no knowledge of the value of your stones and won’t pay extra for them. They test and weigh only.
Lately with the high price of gold many out of town companies have set up in local hotels and Malls for gold and jewelry buying events. Double check them. Find out who they are before you see them.They spend a lot of money on advertising to get you to come in and most of the time will low-ball you when you get there. Remember we have been buying gold for 19 years in the same location and will be here whether gold is trading at $300 oz. or $1900 oz. We are not some fly-by-night company.
You may have seen commercials on TV from companies wanting you to send your valuable gold off in the mail . BEWARE These businesses count on the fact that once they are in possession of your gold, you will accept any offer that they give you. If your shipment is lost or stolen it will be up to you to do the tracing and claim. This could take many weeks even months to settle. Don’t wait for a check, get paid today at Snooky’s on the Downtown Mall.
