The Long Version

Trading for thirty years in the Pawnbroking and asset finance business we are a family run business. We have years of experience in valuing high end luxury items, with numerous experts on hand.

We lend against luxury watches, but also jewellery, antiques, collectables, gold and diamonds. All fine art, classic cars and boats – in fact any high value assets. This is an excellent way of releasing funds from your treasured procession without having to say goodbye to it permanently.

We have made the application process as simple as possible, keeping it fast and efficient. Fill in our quick online form with a description of the asset you wish to borrow against, or you’re welcome to speak directly to an advisor. Next we’ll send you a quote of the amount we are willing to lend against the item. If you’re happy to proceed we would then take the item for valuation. We can collect fully insured on items up to £25,000. The item will undergo careful examination from our experienced valuers to ensure an accurate appraisal that will provide you with the maximum level of credit for your item.

We will then confirm our quote; or alter it, if the item is damaged or not as described. The final stage would be the accepting of the offer and once we receive notification of your acceptance, the funds will be sent straight into your account.
