Loans on Jewelry

If you provide an item as collateral for the loan, a pawn shop loan is a practical solution for obtaining a fast short-term loan.

Compared to applying for a personal loan from a bank or using a high-interest credit card, getting a collateral loan from Maxferd is a quicker and more economical alternative. Moreover, it can be less uncomfortable than borrowing from friends or family.

If you are in need of immediate cash, our pawn shop in Torrance is the ideal destination for you.

We offer swift and confidential cash loans for jewelry (even if it is damaged) and premium timepieces.

Our five-step process for obtaining a loan is quick and straightforward:

Step 1: Bring your jewelry to our counter for a brief evaluation.

Step 2: Receive a verbal quote within minutes.

Step 3: Provide a valid form of identification (driver’s license, ID card, or passport).

Step 4: Sign the loan agreement, which will be printed and given to you upon approval.

Step 5: Receive your payment in cash, check, or wire transfer while we securely store your item.

– No credit check is necessary.

– We do not report to credit agencies in the event that you are unable to repay the loan.

Note: We can provide loans using a variety of items as collateral, not just jewelry. This means you can obtain the cash you need without having to pawn your precious jewelry.

The following items are gladly welcome as collateral:

We are pleased to accept a wide range of items as collateral, including precious metals and coins, loose diamonds and gemstones, high-end DSLR cameras and accessories, Apple products, computers and laptops, musical instruments, luxury handbags, select collectibles, and artwork.

Layaway Program

Feeling drawn to a unique and desirable item in our store can be an exhilarating experience, but we understand that it may not be financially viable for you to purchase it right away without exceeding your budget.

It’s understandable to be concerned that someone else might buy the item before you get the chance, and it may not become available again.

To address this issue, we offer the Maxferd layaway program, which gives you extra time. This program is an excellent way to secure the item you desire at a guaranteed fixed price.

-Income and credit verification are not required.

– No extra charges for layaway.

-No interest charges will be added.

To join our layaway program, we only require a 20% down payment and a valid form of identification proving you are 18 years or older. You’ll have five months to pay the remaining balance in monthly installments that are easy to manage. Throughout this period, the item you selected will be kept exclusively reserved for you and stored securely until the final payment is made.

Tip: Take advantage of our layaway program to pleasantly surprise your loved ones with a unique and unexpected gift on special occasions like birthdays, Valentine’s Day, or Christmas. And don’t forget to treat yourself to something special because you definitely deserve it!
