The 2 Things To Look For When Taking in Golf Clubs
Original post written by PawnGuru Co-Founder David and featured on PawnGuru.com – where consumers can get multiple offers for their items from local pawn shops.
There are many sports that are affordable to play, like basketball and soccer. Alas, the same can’t be said for golf.
Depending on the brand, a set of golf clubs can run between $200-$2000 dollars. Alone a putter, wood, or hybrid can be as much as $300. Any golf enthusiast will tell a beginner to first buy used golf clubs and hit a few balls before buying new. With this being said, there is a huge market for used golf clubs in the pawn industry. When your customers bring in golf clubs to pawn or sell, here are 2 things you should look at to determine an offer amount.
You should first look at the brand of the clubs to come up with a figure in your head. For example, Titleist and Callaway clubs are more valuable than Wilson clubs and therefore, should elicit a higher offer (but also, will have a higher resale value too).
Pre-owned clubs will have some wear and tear but don’t let that scare you. You can still make an offer if the grip is worn because those can easily be replaced. However, if a club head is loose or has any major chips, rusts or dents on the club face or shaft, you should avoid the club entirely as it would be really hard to make any kind of profit off of it.
If a golf set comes in with a golf bag, consider adding a few extra bucks to your offer because this will greatly increase resale value since a lot of buyers are looking for an all-in-one package.
Women’s clubs are unfortunately in less demand, affecting the resale value and turnover rate, and therefore, you might want to consider offering less for them.
Once you purchase a set of clubs from a customer, be sure to clean them thoroughly before placing it on your salesroom floor. The closer to brand new they look, the more money you can ultimately fetch.
