Lockdown 2.0 is the Perfect Time for a Scrap Gold Clear-out

Published Tuesday 1st December 2020

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…

Gold is near all-time highs

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.

Post Office makes delivery easier than ever

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.
