5 renowned pawnbrokers in the UK
Most pawnbrokers offer similar services throughout the country, which consist of providing cash loans for your jewellery, gold, watches and others. I have listed five of the most renowned pawnbrokers and highlighted some of the key features that distinguish one from another.
Fast Credit UK
Having only branches in Fulham and Southall for the moment, Fast Credit is open 7 days a week between 8AM and 10PM. It is the only pawnbroker in the UK that offers a repayment plan calculated with daily interest. In other words, if you get a short-term cash loan and plan or paying back within a week period, you will not be charged a full monthly rate but on those 7 days only. Strong concurrent that offers low rates for both pawnbroking loans and currency exchange.
Harvey and Thompson is probably the oldest in the game as they have been around since 1897. Having over 180 stores nationwide, they can be easily considered as the largest pawnbrokering network in United Kingdom. Asides from pawnbroking loans, they hold branches in numerous financial branches including asset evaluation and Alternative Investment Market (AIM) where they have expanded greatly.
