How to Get Quick Cash For Your Cellphone

There are a few preparatory steps that we can walk you through to ensure you have the smoothest transaction while pawning your cellphone in Northern Virginia.

Fair And Negotiable Prices

After we evaluate the worth of your mobile device, we’ll set a price for it. The price we set is based on a careful assessment of your phone or tablet. We determine the price based on the brand, model, year of manufacture, appearance and condition, as well as the market demand for the type of phone you have. For example, a recent iPhone 8 will attract more money than an iPhone 5 or a generic Android smartphone.

Other factors we consider when determining your price include:

  • Screen size
  • Operating system
  • RAM and other specs
  • Accessories and paperwork

Usually, we offer to buy a phone or tablet at 50% of the price we expect to sell it for, and we allow you to negotiate the price. In cases where you’re selling a recently released smartphone that’s in high demand, you’ll be offered a higher price.

Tips To Pawn Your Tablet Or Phone At A Fair Price

Here are some tips that can help you earn top dollar for your smartphone:

  • Keep it in good condition: A phone in good condition will attract a higher price than one that is dirty, marked up, or that has a cracked screen. So, make sure you wipe it down with a soft cloth and make it look as new and attractive as possible.
  • Come with a complete phone: If possible, bring in the phone, charger, headphones or earpiece, the box and the original receipt. The more complete the phone is, the easier it will be to sell.
  • Do some research: We’ll always offer a fair price for your devices, but do some research ahead of time, know your device’s specs and come with a price in mind. This step will make it easier for you to negotiate and leave satisfied.
  • Wipe your information: Be sure to wipe any personal information off of your devices. We can’t sell devices that are locked or have Apple IDs linked.

Selling Apple Products

We are always happy to buy your iPhones, iPads or Apple MacBooks. Just like all our other devices, you’ll get the best offers for devices that are in good shape, more recent models or brought in with original packaging, documentation and accessories.

All devices store personal information that should be wiped before you bring them in for your own privacy and safety, but Apple products have additional steps that you need to follow. We can’t sell Apple devices that are still linked to your Apple ID.

To prepare your Apple device to pawn, first back up all of your personal data to your iCloud or another cloud service. Then, go to your settings and wipe all of the content from your device. Be sure to disconnect your iMessenger and log out of iTunes and the App Store.

Once your phone is cleared, go to Apple’s website to unregister your device from your Apple ID. If you follow all of these steps before you bring in your device, your assessment will be quick and you’ll get paid even faster!

Used Devices for Pawn Loans

When you bring your device to a pawn shop, you can sell it outright or use it as collateral for a pawn loan. Pawn loans — also known as collateral loans — are a great way to get immediate cash when you are in a bind without having to give up your device permanently.

Bring in your laptops, tablets, smartphones or other devices and we will appraise them and name a price. Leave your item with us and we will give you your cash loan. You have 30 days to repay your loan and the interest so you can reclaim your device.

Collateral loans are easier and more flexible than loans you might get from a bank or other lender. We don’t do credit checks, and your loan will never affect your credit. You can borrow as little as $10 or as much as $100,000, depending on the items you have to use as collateral.

If you reach the end of your 30-day loan and you can’t pay it back, you can either let us keep your item as payment or, if you still want your device back, pay the interest on your loan to extend it another 30 days.

    Mia I.

    My husband picked up our engagement rings from here, best day of my life. thanks route 50 for the great selection. I was very pleased

    Brad B.

    The guys were really honest and straight with me. I went to other shops in the area such as jewelry exchange of tysons and got much much worse treatment. Other places you find either stuck-up trashy people, or extremely rude cut-throats. These guys were regular, nice, and fair; explaining the process to me and how buying/selling and pawning things work. I’d recommend them to a friend.

    Michelle P.

    Never disappointed. Excellent customer service, very friendly. Very clean store. Great selections.
