Long Island, NY (WiredPRNews.com) These days it seems that everybody is buying gold from the local pawnshop to big national companies. Many people have undoubtedly seen the ads for those companies that purchase precious metals and are wondering how honest and reliable these outfits are.
According to an expert of gold buying, “Contrary to popular belief, you will run little or no risk if you ship your valuables to a reputable buyer. The long distance gold buyers are generally safe and fairly honest. In many cases they often pay a higher price for items than local outfits.”
Professional jewelers and precious metals traders in cities like New York have long paid a much higher price for metals like gold. Unfortunately, average people haven’t been able to access these outlets. Well fortunately many of them now offer long distance appraisal of gold and other valuables. Here are some tips for taking advantage of their services.
How to Take Advantage of Long Distance Gold Buying
The first tip is to find a professional jeweler and precious metals trader. The ones based in New York usually pay a higher price for precious metals.
The next tip is to make sure they have a secure means of shipping. This means that they use a service like FedEx or UPS. They should provide shipping at no cost to you and they should send you an envelope to ship in. The buyer should also insure the item so that you aren’t taking a risk.
Once you get the envelope you should ship the items back in it. They will be examined by the pros at the buyer. If the items are valuable they will make you an offer which you can accept or decline. If you don’t like the offer you can get your stuff back at no cost. If you accept the offer you can be paid through check, direct deposit to your bank account, or Paypal. This means you can get the funds in a few days.
Something that many people don’t know is that gold isn’t the only precious metal or valuable that these services buy. Other items that they services might purchase include:
• Jewels such as diamonds, rubies and emeralds
If you aren’t sure about an item simply drop it in the pouch and let the pros take a look at it. They can show you if your item is worth money or not.
