Simple Tips to Consider When Selling.

  • Research selling options like pawn shops, jewellers, and online buyers, ensuring reputation, fairness and reliability before selling locally.
  • You can only assess the value accurately after testing.
  • Remember to take a relevant Photo ID.
  • Compare final payment with other companies.
  • Read the small print for any hidden charges and commissions.
  • Know the carat and separate them into different parcels.
  • The purity affects its value. Do research and acquire adequate knowledge which would be valuable to you.
  • Note the different weights and the weight as a whole for your reference.
  • Please ensure the merchant pays you the final amount listed on their website.
  • Remember that the price can increase or decrease by the time you go to sell.
  • Call the respective trader to confirm the rate if you have any questions.
  • If you prefer cash payment, ensure the relevant company does cash pay-outs.
  • Remember that the Valuations outside London will be significantly lower than in a city with many traders.
  • Nothing is free in life; unfortunately, free post-packs are not free. Do check the end pay-out for your items. 😊👍
  • The selling value will be less than the live market value, as that is how companies make a profit and hedge against market fluctuation.
  • If you have to follow many stages of getting the exact price of your items, then assessing the accurate value of the items you want to sell takes work.
  • Last but not least, avoid scammers by doing your research.

Step 1: Walk into LGC or Post your items to us

Walk-in:

Visit our Store at 5 Hatton Garden, London EC1N 8AA. We also do online transactions. We are experts in buying, valuing, and buying. The Process is Straightforward and should take 5 to 10 minutes to complete. However, if you have a large quantity of Small Items, it could take longer as we would have to test them individually before buying. Customers also have the option to Melt them down into a bar and then get Assy and get paid; the customer is present during the melting and assay process. No appointment is needed to visit us; please refer to the video below for directions from the tube station to find LGC.

Post:

Please complete the online form and follow the instructions to post your precious metals to us. We do not send out pre-paid posts, as any companies who do that tend to deduct the charges from the final payment. We at LGC pay the prices shown in our Pay-out Converter for your Scrap at the time of sale; there are no hidden charges or fees. A team member will contact you to confirm the pay-out on the day we receive your parcel, and for any reason you are not satisfied, we will post the items back to you.

Step 2: The valuables will be tested and priced in front of the customer

The time to test Physical Metals can vary depending on the method used. X-ray machines can efficiently test Bars and Coins. However, testing scrap metal is a bit more complicated as you could have plated items which the X-ray machine cannot detect. Due to the high value of Precious Metals, we have to be sure before making an offer.

X-ray Testing:
We use advanced technologies like X-rays to test your Investment and Scrap article. The mechanic will read an item’s AU, AG, PD, and PT content percentages, determining the Karat of the product. This method will not leave unwanted marks on your items and takes a few seconds to test individual items. Plated Items are Acid tested; the customer can refuse an acid test; however, we would not buy the item.

Acid Testing:
The process consists of scratching the item’s surface and bringing it in contact with Acid, and based on the chemical reaction, we can determine whether the item is plated or solid. Unfortunately, this is the only method. The item will be scratched and discoloured. You can check the value of a particular item before the test to determine its value if it turns out to be solid.

If there are many items, this process could take a long time, and the alternative solution would be to melt and Assay.

Step 3: We Make the offer and Pay

Please note that you are only obliged to sell to us if you are happy with our offer. We pay you the amount shown online at the time of sale. Please click the links below to check your item’s worth based on the day’s live market. Once you agree with the offer, we pay cash or Bank Transfer
