A pawn is when a customer brings in an item and is given cash in exchange for their personal property. The item is stored in the pawnbroker’s possession until the customer repays and retrieves the property according to the terms of the agreement, or the pawn contract defaults.

A Pawn loan is a 30 day loan that is due at the end of 30 days, with interest. If the item is not paid in full at the end of the 60 days the item then becomes property of the pawn shop.

Yes, each pawned item has an interest rate or service charge based on the pawn loan. Click here to contact us for a quote.

When you bring your item in, we will determine the value based on weather the item will sell in today’s market and its current retail value. Once those elements are established we will decide on the amount of the loan. The loan amount is based on a percentage of what the item would resell for today.

No, Pee Wee’s does not have to extend the pawn loan once the item has reached its redemption date. The Code of Alabama states you have 60 days from the date of the pawn to retrieve your item, including paying the loan in full. But we are happy to work with you if an extension is needed, please contact us or more information. Just click here to get started.
