Some advice when selling your precious metals.
Stay away from anyone who refuses to post or let you know their prices over the telephone. Especially pawns shops and jewellery stores. Their goal is to offer unreasonably low prices if they suspect a customer doesn’t know the actual value of their gold, silver or platinum.
Know the weight of your items in grams before you actually visit the gold buyer. That way you will know if their offer is fair and honest. If you do not have a scale, use quarters or loonies as a reference. A quarter weighs 4 grams and a loonie weighs 7 grams.
We would also encourage you to look around for a better price, and in saying so we are confident that you will choose Toronto Gold as your local gold buyer. There is no other gold buyer who offers more! Should you have other written quotes before you arrive, you will find our payouts higher and, if not, we will match the price plus 50% of the difference with our 150% guarantee.
Make sure to read small print carefully. Our competitors sometimes advertise their prices only for customers who sell more than $10,000 worth of gold. If you sell less than this quantity, you will not be paid what is advertised.
Stay away from a buyer who tells you price ranges, but will not commit to a specific price. If they tell you they are paying “$8 – $14 per gram”, you can be assured that you will be offered the lesser amount after a lengthy, unpleasant negotiation.
