What is pawnbroking? It's really just another method of lending, in fact it's one of the oldest – people were pawning their belongings to borrow money thousands of years before banks and credit ratings existed. It's obviously a system that works, because we still use it to this day!

Pawnbroking loans can be a lifeline when those emergency expenses that you just can't plan for crop up, and mean you're suddenly in need of some cash. You can unlock the cash in your assets by offering your possessions as security to borrow against. You get a short-term cash boost, and you'll also enjoy a lower level of interest while repaying your loan as the items you have pawned act as a collateral.

You risk losing your item if you fail to repay by your due date. Your item will be sold to cover the cost of the loan, you will not be liable to repay any shortfall.
