Read why a loan from Edinburgh Asset Finance is far superior to a pawn shop loan.
Pawn Shop Not Your Thing? Here at Edinburgh Asset Finance, it’s not ours either
Pawn shop. If those words leave you cold, you’re in great company. Pawnbrokers, after all, don’t enjoy the greatest of reputations.
For good reason, a pawnbroker loan conjures up images of high street shops in run-down areas. A vast glass screen or shutter separating customer from pawnbroker. And a transaction that ought to be private and discreet being conducted instead on either side of that divide.
A pawnbroker loan isn’t known for its amazing value either. Often, high street pawnbrokers offer loan amounts that border on the insulting.
So, when it comes to privacy and fairness, a high street pawn loan can leave a lot to be desired.
The Quick and Easy No-Pawn Shop Solution to Cash Flow
But what do you do when you find yourself in need of quick cash?
It’s a good question. And at Edinburgh Asset Finance, we’ve had an answer from day one.
High-Value Loans From a Lender with a High-Value Outlook
When we began our cash loans business, we were careful to look at the pawnbroker sector.
We researched and studied what was on offer out on the high street. Next, we were equally careful to create a service that rejected everything we felt was wrong about the average pawn shop. Instead, we welcomed in values like fairness and transparency alongside benefits like speed and simplicity.
We did this because we had a particular type of customer in mind. And we wanted Edinburgh Asset Finance to become a modern, professional cash flow solution. In short…
…the pawn shop for people who don’t do pawn shops
Most, if not all, of our customers would never consider doing business with a traditional high street pawnbroker. That’s partly because the high street pawn shop is a place that just doesn’t fit their lifestyle. However, it’s also because, in the past, any temporary cash flow issues would have been handled at our customers’ banks.
But for years now banks and other financial institutions have been ever-more reluctant to help. And even on occasions when they do say yes, bank processes are slow and cumbersome. Stuck in a past of paperwork and process. We don’t think that’s fair – or fit for purpose.
A loan solution that’s fast, fair and designed for today
There’s good news, though, for those with high-value assets. For owners of luxury items, Edinburgh Asset Finance has removed the need for both banks and the last-resort-option of traditional pawn shops.
What Makes Edinburgh Asset Finance a Better Route to Fast Cash Than A High Street Pawn Shop?
Lots of things. For our customers, privacy and discretion are important of course. But so also is speed.
We count many of our customers from the worlds of business and commerce. For these clients, a business loan has to be fast. That’s because a new opportunity could depend upon it. So might a wage or tax bill. Or the supplies that mean a project can go ahead. Crucially, a loan can’t impact on future borrowing either.
At Edinburgh Asset Finance, we’ve designed a process that delivers all of these benefits and more to both our business and personal customers:
Loans are arranged at our Edinburgh office or, if you prefer, at your premises. Appointments give both parties adequate time to arrange the loan, as well as a private location for business.
Our valuers and appraisers are among the best in the business. They can put a fast, fair price on assets like a luxury car, a Rolex watch, a piece of art, or jewellery. Their expertise means we can quickly offer you a fair loan amount traditional pawnbrokers simply can’t match.
Private and Discreet
As well as offering a discreet, business-based location, all loan discussions remain, of course, completely confidential and are never revealed to third parties.
Our loan offers are clear and concise. No minimum loan periods apply, and all loans can be paid off early. Hidden charges? Not at Edinburgh Asset Finance. For more information about loan transparency, please visit our FAQs section.
Invisible to Other Lenders
As we require no credit checks, your bank and other lenders are never made aware of your loan. That means there’s no impact now, or in the future, on any other borrowing.
Faster Than a Bank. Better Value Than A Pawn Shop
Securing a loan with Edinburgh Asset Finance is easy and fast. How easy? With your loan value based solely on your assets, it’s a snap for us to agree terms with you. How fast? Often we can have cash in your account on the same day your loan is agreed.
