Gold Prices Are Ripe For Selling Scrap Gold This Summer

Published Wednesday 24th July 2019

With Brexit continuing to rumble on this summer, gold prices are hitting near-all-time highs. This means that if you happen to hold some gold scrap, you could be in with a chance of making some respectable sums if you decide to sell your scrap gold.

It’s the ideal time to consider selling your scrap gold, as gold prices have a habit of enjoying strong performances in the run up to autumn, when annual demand for gold is often at its highest.

Valuations at the click of a button

One of the benefits of selling your scrap gold with Scrap Gold UK is that you’re able to make a near-instant valuation of what you possess, without having to do so much as click a few buttons. Our Scrap Gold Calculator simply requires a weight in grams and an approximate carat (or purity).

Prices for your sold scrap gold are based on the London LBMA, something of a gold standard when it comes to valuations for gold on the open market. By using this as the basis for prices, we can guarantee that you will get what you expect, when you sell scrap gold with us today.

Scrap of all shapes and sizes

Not only does Scrap Gold UK accept items of scrap gold, we also welcome customers who wish to sell scrap silver. As with scrap gold items, you can try our Scrap Silver Calculator, to see what you can expect to make, by selling scrap silver with us.

Whether you hold gold coins, or even just a bit of dental gold fillings, we’re happy to take a look. Loved ones often pass down jewellery with some gold or silver in it. If you find a broken piece of gold jewellery, that’s not a problem – it’s still worth something to us.

Selling scrap gold, the easy way

When selling scrap gold, you want to make sure you get the valuation you expect. Equally, you might be looking for a transaction that is prompt and secure. With Scrap Gold UK, you can expect just that. We’ve been helping people sell scrap gold, whether it’s 9 carat or 24 carat, rose gold or scrap silver.

When you feel ready to make an enquiry, fill in this Seller Form, to let us help you sell scrap gold efficiently.

If you would like to get in touch to discuss a possible sale of scrap gold to us, check our Contact page. You can reach us by telephone, email or post.

Alternatively, if you wish to visit our Wolverhampton offices, make sure to drop us a message, to book an appointment, and we’ll be happy to see how we can serve you.

Near-Record Prices Make Now An Ideal Time To Sell Gold Scrap

Published Tuesday 2nd July 2019

Gold prices are approaching record highs in Pound Sterling terms due to political turbulence, meaning that the summer of 2019 could be one of the best times to sell unwanted gold scrap. The last time prices were this high, it was the summer of 2011.

With prices remaining at such elevated levels, it would be well worth taking stock of any gold scrap you might hold, and seeing how much it’s worth - you never know, it could be worth a fortune, at present gold valuations.

Summer highs make selling gold extra attractive

You might wonder how you can be sure you sell your scrap gold at the right price. Scrap Gold UK knows the answer. We track the market price of gold through the London Gold Fix, ensuring that when you sell your scrap gold to us, you’ll get the right valuation as dictated by market prices.

As of late June 2019, gold prices have jumped to as high as £1,100 per troy ounce. To put this into perspective, gold prices have rarely been this high, so you could be in for something of a major cash boost if you happen to have some scrap gold under your sofa.

At Scrap Gold UK, we provide payment by valuing your scrap gold in relation to market prices at the time of receipt, so make sure to pick a time when you can make the most out of selling your scrap gold.

Wide variety of precious metals accepted

Scrap Gold UK not only accepts scrap gold items. We’re more than happy to take a look at items that are made of silver, platinum, and palladium too. We even accept scrap gold in the form of gold alloys. Got any rose gold or white gold? Don’t worry if it’s not pure gold - it’s still worth something.

When it comes to selling your gold, all you have to do is fill in this simple Seller Form. All we need to know is the most basic contact details, a basic description of the item you wish to send, as well as your preferred payment method.

Getting the price right

We understand the importance of making sure your scrap gold is sold at a fair value. That’s why Scrap Gold UK has its very own Scrap Gold Calculator. If you’re interested in selling, but want to get a quick price check, to see what your scrap gold could be worth, use the calculator to get a good estimate, before even sending a single piece of gold.

All it requires is the item’s weight and carat (or purity). These factors help our calculator produce a fair valuation for your scrap gold.

Scrap Gold UK is based in Wolverhampton, so if you live in the area and wish to sell scrap gold to us, we welcome you to visit us. Before you do visit, make sure to contact us and book an appointment, to avoid unnecessary delays.

If you have any queries about selling scrap gold or scrap items made of other precious metals such as silver, palladium or platinum, feel free to write to us, call us or email us. We look forward to helping you sell your scrap gold in a way that suits you best.
