Buying from a Pawnbroker
When buying secondhand goods there are many options, but none as safe and secure as purchasing from a licensed secondhand dealer. Unlike less regulated avenues, when purchasing from a Pawnbroker you are protected from any kind of property charges related to the purchased item.
Many a bargain hunter has had the miserable experience of a ‘receiving stolen property/tainted property’ charge after purchasing a ‘great deal’ on Gumtree, eBay, or a Facebook Marketplace. However, when you purchase from a pawnbroker you can buy risk free, knowing that not only has the item been through the police database, but if in the unlikely case that it did turn out to be stolen property, you would be reimbursed by the Pawnbroker and protected from any charges.
