It can be very easy for companies to scam sellers into selling their old watches for way less than the actual value of the watch. It’s important is that you know exactly what kind of watch you have on your hands, how much it’s of value, and how much you’re willing to let it go for. Always, always, always get your watch appraised before selling it. And never opt in for the TV commercial buying act. It’s almost always a scam.
Selling your old gold
Each year there are hundreds of complaints are filed each year with The Better Business Bureau against gold, silver and platinum dealers who essential scam customers for more money. This is because some companies send a check before you agree to their price when you go to sell your old jewelry. While others assume that you agree if you don’t respond quickly enough. And then there are those who don’t send the jewelry back or even pay you.
One way to avoid this is to check for the jeweler your looking to sell to on The Better Business Bureau and see what their business practices are. Another way to avoid this is to read as many reviews of the company as possible, check out Yelp and google and see what other people are saying. You should also have your gold piece appraised (more than once) before selling it so you can get a ballpark idea of what it’s selling for.
