Operational Update

Published Thursday 12th November 2020

As the latest Covid Lock-Down in England adds to the restrictions that are already in force, to varying degrees, in all parts of the United Kingdom, we wish to re-assure our customers that we are still open for business.

We have very strict protocols in place to keep our members of staff safe in the workplace and business continues, albeit not as usual.

We are still receiving packages sent to us by insured Royal Mail Special Delivery and for higher value sales we are able to make Covid-secure arrangements to receive personally delivered consignments, strictly by appointment only and subject to compliance with our protocols. Please call for details if you wish to visit us to sell items.

For clients that are self-isolating or unwilling to visit a Post Office, the new Royal Mail Collect service may be of interest. It is now possible to have insured Special Delivery parcels collected from your home or workplace by Royal Mail for a small additional fee. Visit Royal Mail Parcel Collect Service for details. (Select large letter or small parcel, depending on the weight of your items and select Special Delivery service with an insurance level that covers the contents.) We strongly recommend that a tamper-proof Royal Mail Special Delivery pouch is used when sending precious metals through the post. These pouches are available free of charge from a Post Office. If you are unable to access a Post Office to collect a pouch we will be happy to post a selling kit out to you, just give us a call.

The recent news that a Covid vaccine could be available in the near future seems to have given the Nation a glimmer of hope that 2021 could see the lifting of many of the restrictions that we are currently enduring. We all hope to see improvements in the situation which will allow as social a Christmas period as possible.

In the meantime, please follow the rules that apply to your particular area and Stay Safe.

Clear-Cut Prices For Scrap Gold And Silver In 2020

Published Monday 2nd November 2020

When you plan to sell with Scrap Gold UK, you know you’ll get a fair price for your scrap gold or silver. Our word is our bond, and worth its weight in gold. We’ve got the Scrap Gold Calculator to calculate it.

At a time when precious metals prices are elevated, any scrap gold or silver lying around your home could fetch a hefty sum. However, not all buyers offer a fair price for it, for a number of reasons. Scrap Gold UK is as up-front as possible. Here, we explain why.

Easy to calculate a fair price

As prices have risen for precious metals, the number of unscrupulous or even fraudulent gold buyers is on the rise. This phenomenon occurred during the last precious metals bull market in the 2000s, and we know the signs.

Sites purport to offer an easy opportunity to sell scrap gold and silver, but keep customers in the dark about the vital information they actually need - accurate prices and rates, consistent contact information and a way of meeting in person if possible (when restrictions are eased). That’s not right, and Scrap Gold UK believes in doing things in an above-board manner, with as much clarity as possible.

The price of gold changes all the time, subject to market forces. Timing is everything, so you’ll want to avoid selling when the price is low. Scrap Gold UK’s website has a special Live Gold Tracker, letting you see how prices change over the course of a day.

The price of gold has doubled in the last five years, boosting the chances of making a respectable sum from a sale. By using our Scrap Gold Calculator, you could see today’s price of £16.72 per gram with a piece of 9-carat gold. With us, you’ll be in no doubt about precisely what your item could be worth, with just a few short clicks. No second-guessing - just the clear numbers in black and white.

Secure sales in digital form

Scrap Gold UK is able to offer such generous prices for a good reason. We don’t have the same overheads that many buyers have, allowing us to give you a fairer price for your gold or silver. Our sales are handled digitally, making the process streamlined, secure and modern. Your items are safe with us.

The process is as follows - value your gold first. If you’re happy with the price, it’s time to fill in our Sell Your Gold Form. Once printed off, we’ll give you a unique reference number for your items. Place the items in a parcel with the signed form. For security reasons, avoid mention of anything to do with the contents on the outside of the parcel.

If you would like peace of mind, you can even track your parcel in transit. Once your items have been received safely by us, we will value them and make you an offer. Your payment will be made direct to your bank account on the same day. If you’re new to selling gold or silver, don’t worry. Our team is friendly and approachable, ready to help with any enquiry you may have.
 

To get in touch, call us on 01902 828 400, in case you wish to make a sale or have any questions about a potential sale. We look forward to helping you.
