Tips on selling your Gold

Think before you sell!

Ensure you are aware of the weight of your Gold. Kitchen scales can often give surprisingly good indications! Depending on how much Gold you have it is possible to buy a small digital scale for £10 or less! Try to weigh in Grams if you can as this can be less complicated than Troy ounces. There are approx 31.1 grams in a Troy ounce.


Be sure to have knowledge of the Gold volume of your pieces to ascertain the correct value of your gold. A scrap gold buyer hallmark chart is always the best place to start. We offer a free testing service where hallmarks are not present.

Do your research regarding the daily value of your gold. Gold fixes or prices change through the day in line with the economic markets which control the price. Our real timeon page independant graphs indicate whether prices are going up or down.

Browse the Internet for Gold prices. Reputable Gold dealers should be offering around 75% upwards of the worth of your reflecting the the day’s Gold fix. Insist on a price from any dealer up front and trust your gut instinct on whether you sell or not.

If you are considering selling to a postal Gold company then make sure you keep a record of the items you are selling including the weight, type and carat. Also ensure that you are aware of their return policy should you decide not to sell.



Do not be fooled by disreputable companies.

If you have done your research on where to sell gold and some dealers are offering up to 30% more than the advertised Gold fix price then it is probably too good to be true! Companies that conduct on-line google ad's, radio and TV promotions are often the worse payers as someone has to pay for the advertising costs!

There are lots of on-line “Band Wagon” companies in for the short term return of profit and “quick buck”. These too are more likely to offer less for your items and if you conduct research by on-line reviews on particular companies then you will find evidence of unscrupulous dealings.
