Our website will remain available throughout the festive period but our offices will close from 3.30pm on Tuesday 22nd December 2020 until 10am on Monday 4th January 2021.
Due to ongoing disruption to the postal service in some areas, your last day for despatching Royal Mail insured Special Delivery parcels for delivery to us before 22nd December should be Thursday 17th December.
Parcels that we do not receive by 22nd December will be processed after our return to work on 4th January and may be held in Royal Mail storage until that date.
We will resume normal service on 4th January 2021.
You don’t need to read the headlines to know 2020 has been a tough year - the COVID-19 pandemic has done much to our health and our economy. But it’s not all doom and gloom - having a bit of scrap gold gathering dust around your home could offer you that much-needed cash boost ahead of Christmas 2020.
With prices higher than during any previous festive season on record, your scrap gold could go further than before, so it could be the opportune time for you to make a sale with Scrap Gold UK today.
The ongoing restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic mean you’ve probably spent far more time within your four walls than ever before. That may have given plenty of time for you to go through the home, and think long and hard about what you need and what can go.
Scrap gold has become increasingly valuable this year, and Scrap Gold UK has been following gold prices higher and higher in 2020, on news of recession and economic uncertainty. Prices touched £1,500 per troy ounce for the first time this summer. As a result, we’re able to offer customers as much as £15.93 per gram of 9-carat gold.
It’s one of the most competitive prices to find in the gold scrap markets, as Scrap Gold UK’s service is highly digitised, meaning we require lower overheads than most buyers. To see what your item could earn you, check out our Gold Scrap Calculator here - all you need to know is the weight and purity of your item.
Higher prices for scrap gold mean something of a pre-Christmas dividend, if you time your sale right. Scrap Gold UK has been helping customers make timely sales for many years, and we do so using a secure, easy-to-use service.
For more information about how to sell with Scrap Gold UK today, check out our How Does It Work guide here. When you’re ready to go, it’s time to fill in the Sell Your Gold form here. With a few short clicks, you can make a sale easily, without even having to set foot outside your front door.
Please note that Scrap Gold UK will pause receipt of scrap gold items over the festive season from 17th December 2020, so make sure to send your item ahead of time, to carry out a speedy transaction. To avoid having to visit a Post Office branch in person, why not try the online Post Office collection service?
For more information about making a sale today, give us a call on 01902 828 400, to get in touch with our team, in case you have any enquiries to make.
It’s easy to feel a sense of déjà vu, as England emerges from under its second major lockdown since COVID-19 first reached our shores.
With this in mind, the nights are longer and more of us are spending time at home.
So, if you’re doing that much-needed clear-out and find a bit of scrap gold lying around or have an item you’ve been meaning to sell, now could be the perfect time to consider doing so. Prices are high, and you’ve got all the tools you need to make an easy sale right at your fingertips…
The price is right - this summer, we saw gold prices top £1,500 per troy ounce for the first time ever. At Scrap Gold UK, we are able to offer you a market leading price per gram of 9-carat gold. This is an opportune time to consider locking in the gains to be had from selling gold at this high.
Timing a sale is everything, so that’s why we use our Live Gold Price Tracker, to help you identify when the price is high enough for you. To get an accurate reading of what you could expect to make from selling your item, our Gold Scrap Calculator is on hand, giving you an accurate reading. All that’s needed is the weight in grams and the item’s carat or purity.
Whether it’s old coins, cutlery or even old gold tooth fillings, we’re happy to take a look and help value your items, to realise the great gains you have locked away in your home.
It’s never been easier to send scrap gold items by post than in 2020. While restrictions remain in place, Scrap Gold UK is doing everything it can to help in the fight against COVID-19. Visits at our offices in Wolverhampton are by appointment only, and we encourage customers to embrace the idea of dispatching their gold in a way that ensures their safety.
For example, one of the best ways to send your items to Scrap Gold UK is through the Post Office’s Click and Drop service. This allows you to have your parcel collected from home, avoiding having to make the journey to the nearest Post Office and stand in a queue. All it takes is a few clicks of a button, a tamper-proof sack or packet in discreet packaging and you’re set.
For all the necessary information about sending your item, including the address to send to, check out our Selling Gold Online page.
Payment can be made swiftly, in the form of a bank transfer or a cheque, within at most a day following the receipt of your parcel (excluding weekends and bank holidays). By calling us on 01902 828 400, you can be put directly in touch with our Customer Service Team, who will be on hand to help with any enquiries you may have.
