How to obtain a Top Dog price for your scrap gold

This blog is meant to provide simple, impartial, honest, and good common sense advice on how to sell gold with confidence and acquire the best prices for your gold, silver and precious metals.

We give some of the highest prices within the UK for scrap gold, silver, and other precious metals such as platinum, palladium and rhodium and to be honest we have to so we can compete with our competitors.

Please be mindful that there are companies who will deviously offer a ridiculously high price on-line, way above the spot price for your precious metals only then to offer a vastly lower amount upon receipt of your items and then astonishingly offer twice the amount when you refuse out of hand the original offer (which of course is still be well down on the market rate anyway!). There are traders within the business who will endeavour to rip you off, strong words but regretfully true.

9 carat gold is presently as I write worth between £9-£10 per gram. My recommendations to evade under par sub-standard gold prices and equally, outrageous claims of artificially high prices are as follows;

Shop around for the Best Scrap Gold price.

Top Dogs gold prices are linked directly to the London gold fix and spot price. Check gold buyer prices on-line and make comparisons but in my opinion price is not everything as honesty and trust is equally paramount when selling your scrap gold. I beleive you can find both when dealing with Top Dog. So call a company, ask questions and follow your instincts! Be careful of misleading on-line ad’s advertising super high prices as mentioned in the opening Para of this blog. Always visit the dealers’ web site and check their advertised price (if you can find one!) Honest gold dealers will almost certainly advertise their existing prices daily, live on-line, the not so reputable will promote only on their enticing on-line ad’s and not actual scrap gold and silver prices on the corresponding home web sites.

High street jewellers will buy your gold and indeed I encourage prospective customers to obtain quotations and compare to my prices as due to their overheads they cannot compete with Top Dogs prices. I will more better any bona fide quotation received. Also Gold street traders, the type you see in market places and gold Pawn broker/TV/Radio advertised companies will offer inferior price, if you don’t believe me then check my price on-line or call and op down and see these people for a quote and compare.

Be aware of what you have.

Try to obtain the purity and subsequent carat of the Gold that you have. Most Gold (but not all, especially some foreign) will have a gold or silver stamp although some rolled or plate items may have non-genuine marks so you have to be on your toes! Why not buy a cheap eye glass on-line and have a look at the UK gold and silver hallmarks here. The information on this page outlines the various Gold carats and hallmarks to look for including silver. Decent kitchen scales will also help provide an approximate appreciation of the all-important weight of your scrap gold valuables so you can obtain approx. estimates via a phone call, email or on-line price calculator when contacting Top Dog for instance.
