Things to Do before Selling Your Watch
If you are thinking about coming in to see our Middlesex County watch buyers, you will want to make sure you are as prepared as possible. Of course, you are more than welcome to just stop in whenever you want, but we have found that most of our customers are happier with the results when they take a little time to make sure they are ready for selling their watch.
The following are just a few of the things you can do ahead of time to help make the entire experience go more smoothly. Of course, we also buy other things like jewelry, diamonds, gold, coins and just about anything that is valuable like this, so in addition to following the below watch related tips, make sure you look around to see if there are any other items you want to sell.
Prepare to Sell a Watch
When you are getting ready to bring in a watch to see one of our buyers, go through the following list and make sure you are as prepared as possible. This can help you to avoid stress and problems, and may also help you to get more money for the watch or watches that you are selling.
• Price Range – Having a general price range in mind when you come in can help you to be able to decide much easier. For example, if you know that you won’t sell your watch for under $500 and we are only able to offer $150, you won’t be tempted to budge that much. When in ‘the heat of the moment’ in our shop, some people decide to sell and then may regret it. This can help avoid that problem.
• Do You Want to Sell – Some people come into our shop thinking that they want to sell, but when it comes time to sign they realize that they actually have a strong emotional attachment to the watch. There is certainly nothing wrong with that, but it is something you may want to think about ahead of time.
• Learn about Your watch – Take a few minutes to try to find out as much as you can about your watch. If you know the make, model and year it was sold, for example, you can have a better idea of what it is worth. This can help you to know what you should expect when you are selling.
• Leave the Watch in its Current Condition – Don’t try to clean the watch on your own. This can often damage it and reduce its value. If it is dirty, we can clean it with our professional equipment so you don’t have to worry about it at all.
The more you can do to be prepared when going in to see our Middlesex County watch buyers the better you will feel about the entire experience. No matter what you do to prepare, however, we have found that the vast majority of our customers are very happy with the overall experience, and especially happy with how much money they were able to get when they sell their watch to us.
