What’s My Flat Screen TV Worth? A Rundown of What You Can Expect

If you’ve ever needed cash fast, then you might want to give a pawn shop a try. They’re known for giving out loans on items banks and credit unions won’t touch.

Having said that, if you’ve got a used TV for sale, you’re in the right place. Pawn shops like GEM Pawnbrokers can get you a good price—and they’ll also give you four months to pay back the loan so you can get your TV back in time for The Walking Dead season premiere.

Why Sell Your TV to a Pawn Shop?

If you’re looking to sell used electronics for cash, you might wonder what makes a pawn shop a good choice. Why bother with the hassle of going to a pawn shop when you could just throw it up on a resale app?

The fact is that pawn shops have a ton of advantages over selling to a random stranger online. Pawn shops are a lot safer, for one thing. For another, pawn shops like GEM Pawnbrokers have an expert staff that can help you get the best price for your flat screen TV.

Pawn shops will also let you get your TV back up to four months later. Try that tactic with a stranger you met on a resale app? No way.

GEM Pawnbrokers also has 24 convenient locations around NYC and Long Island. So, if you’re in the city, there’s a pawn shop that buys TVs near you. Why wait for someone online to contact you when you can drive to your nearest pawn shop and sell your flat screen TV?

What Pawn Shops Look For in a TV

If you’re taking your flat screen to a pawn shop that buys TVs, you’ll need to remember a few tips.

First, completeness counts. If you have the original cords and remote that came with the TV, you’ll get a better price than you will without them. If you happen to have the original box or even the Styrofoam packing pieces, rest assured you’ll be getting a very good price for your flat screen TV.

Of course, the price you’ll get for your flat screen TV won’t just rely on how complete and clean it is. The pawnbroker will also look at the brand of the TV and its screen size.

If your flat screen TV’s brand is:

  • LG
  • Panasonic
  • Samsung
  • Sony

Congratulations! You’ve got a brand of flat screen TV that is in demand. You’ll also get a reasonably good price if your flat screen TV is a Vizio or a Sharp.

Pawn shops that buy TVs will also pay more for a bigger screen. If your TV’s screen is less than 26 inches, you’d be lucky to get over $50 for it. If your screen is greater than 42 inches, though, a pawnbroker like GEM might offer you over $200, provided the TV is one of the brands mentioned above.
