Before shopping for tools anywhere, including secondhand at a pawn shop, do your research
1: Do Your Research
Whether you are undecided about brand names you want to look for or you are unfamiliar with the features on specific types of equipment you think you want, know what to look for when you shop.
You can even go to a hardware or big box store and handle the tools on display. Ask questions, get to know what the pros and cons are of each type, size, and brand of tool you think you want. Then you can head to our pawn shop and check out the inventory. We often have products from top-of-the-line manufacturers at prices well below what you’ll find at a brick and mortar or online retailer.
No one at a pawn shop is going to discourage you from thoroughly inspecting any of their products, and that includes tools
2: Inspect the Tools
Be sure to look closely before you buy. On power tools, inspect the power cords and be sure there is no fraying or loose wiring where the cord meets the tool or the plug. Make sure you plug it in before you buy it. You want to be certain the motor doesn’t smoke and that it runs smoothly.
On cordless tools, check the battery. Replacement rechargeable battery packs can be expensive, so you want to make sure any cordless tools come with batteries that are in good condition. On tool kits, make sure all of the parts are in the set. It’s like buying a puzzle – you don’t want to find out later that you’re missing a piece. You can rest easy knowing the team at Howard’s Pawn and Jewelry will test any and all tools before we put them up for sale, so you know they work.
You’ll find some of your best hand tool buys at our pawn shop. You can tell the shape they’re in by looking at them. Quality name brands will last, and they don’t have motors or moving parts for you to worry about wear and tear. Just look for a name brand label and steer clear of anything without one.
You do not have to ask us to crank a tool or mower. Part of our policy is to make sure you hear it running before you purchase it.
