Scottsdale Loan Company prides itself on being the best pawn shop Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, or Paradise Valley has to offer. What truly separates us from the market is the fact that we’re less a pawn shop, and more a collateral loan provider, otherwise known as a pawn loan. Pawn shops typically specialize in servicing many of small loans based on an item’s value that is left with the store. Scottsdale Loan Company does the same, but for higher value items. We happily will loan on items with a value of up to $100,000.00. So, we’re ready to make actual pawn loans against your items that will actually help you provide and get you the money you need. What kinds of items do we loan against?
The History of Pawn Shops and Pawnbroking
Throughout all of time has there been a need for an individual to borrow money. Whether it was for food, clothing, alcohol, or whatever the case, people have always needed to borrow money. Before the advent of banks and credit scores, how were you supposed to borrow money? There was no way for someone to know if they could trust you, so you simply didn’t borrow money.
This is where the advent of pawn brokering and the pawn shop come into play. The idea of a pawn shops is that they can loan money to anyone, because what they really offer are pawn loans. These are loans that are based solely on collateral. An individual brings in an item, has it appraised, and then is made an offer for what the pawn shop can loan on it. These pawn loans make pawn shops much more comfortable in loaning money to total strangers, because individual’s inherently want to come back and get the collateral they put up.
The first pawn shops recorded in history were constructed in China way back in the 5 th century. What’s interesting about our modern view on pawn shops is that in ancient China, these “pawn shops” were run by Buddhist monasteries. They worked in exactly the same way pawn shops work now; people came down, presented their items, and then were given a cash offer on their item for loan. They paid monthly interest until they had paid off the entire loan.
What’s also interesting to consider when talking of pawn shops is the strict regulations they must go through to not only be a licensed pawn shop, but to even be able to offer pawn loans. Each state in the United States of America has its own, unique, separate regulations that instruct what a pawn shop is truly allowed to do in their power. These laws control things like maximum interest rates, pawn loan duration, etc. Even during the advent of the first pawn shops in the 5 th century, these Buddhist ran pawn shops were subject to almost the same level of regulation that we experience today.
Arizona Pawn Shop Regulations
There’s many regulations that a pawn shop simply doesn’t concern their customers with. These range from interest rates, to who you can give pawn loans to, to how much money you can lend. First, what overrules all the state regulations, is the federal regulations.
- The Patriot Act – Attempts to stifle terrorism by not allowing anyone without a government-issued ID to acquire a pawn loan from a pawn shop
- Truth in Lending Act – A pawn shop has to inform you of all the terms of your loan, such as interest, and all of the consequences involved of not paying
- Federal Trade Commission – Rules to protect your personal information such as name, address, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information.
- Internal Revenue Service – Any pawn loans issued over $10,000.00 must be reported to the IRS.
The federal regulations aren’t that demanding, but due put a lot of rules in place meant to solely protect the consumer. Now, let’s take a look at the regulations that Arizona itself has put into place to further protect the consumer in Scottsdale, Tempe, Phoenix, and Paradise Valley.
Interest – Arizona law dictates that interest cannot exceed 13% for the first two months of the pawn loan, and 11% for every month thereafter. This differs from state to state.
Fees – To begin the pawn loan process, you cannot be charged more than $5. You also cannot be charged more than $5 a month to store the item.
Licensing – In order to be a pawn broker, the individual seeking to get licensed must submit fingerprints and all past criminal history to the Sheriff’s Department before they can be licensed.
The Arizona regulations and Federal regulations are in place solely to protect the consumer. Regardless of your experience with a pawn loan, the law is always on your side and is there to protect you.
