Value Your Scrap Gold at Home with Scrap Gold UK

Published Monday 30th March 2020

As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to mount and an increasing number of us stay at home, in order to flatten the curve of new cases, it’s likely that we’ll start to pay closer attention to our immediate surroundings.

Many of us might have a bit of gold lying around, whether that’s in the form of old jewellery or some item which you intended to scrap years ago. If you still have it with you, now could be the best time to get an accurate valuation, so you can prepare to sell it at the next best opportunity.

Learn how to value your scrap gold from the safety and comfort of your own home, with Scrap Gold UK today.

Valuations of gold have never been so easy

Traditionally, Scrap Gold UK encourages customers to make sales, posting any gold items directly to us. With the number of COVID-19 cases rising above 25,150 this week as of 31st March, we’ve suspended this service and won’t be accepting items after Friday 20th March, until further notice.

Apologies for any inconvenience, but we believe this is the best strategy, to ensure the safety of our customers, and to avoid the unnecessary risk of loss of items in transit, in the event that the postal system or our offices are forced to close, while the pandemic remains an issue.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a good valuation - in fact, our site has its very own Scrap Gold Calculator. If you have to remain house-bound for the next few weeks, you don’t have to set foot outside your home in order to see what your items might be worth today.

All you need to know is the weight and carat (purity) of your item, and that should be enough to help calculate what you could make from a gold scrap sale. Gold prices are high at present - the economic turmoil of a global pandemic means that the coming months could be the best time in history to consider selling gold.

One gram of 9-carat gold could yield as much as £15, so just imagine what you could make, from a larger item with a higher purity.

Recycling old gold to maximise value

The pandemic means pausing our full service for the time being, but be assured that Scrap Gold UK expects to reinstate it as soon as possible. Not only will we reinstate the sale of scrap gold items, when this happens. We are specialists in maximising the value of gold, especially when it comes to recycling.

Did you know that gold jewellery has VAT applied to it but investment gold products are VAT-free? 

By selling your scrap gold items to us, you can reinvest the proceeds towards an investment gold item, such as gold bars or coins, helping you store your wealth effectively, as gold prices remain high.

If you are considering purchasing gold bars or coins then take a look at our sister website The Gold Bullion Company for some ideas on what is available.
