Pawn Shops That Buy Skateboards

Philadelphia has long been a spot for skateboarding. Skaters from major cities around the nation have journeyed to Philly to skate around FDR Park and the more recent Paine’s Park along the Schuylkill near the Art Museum. What was once viewed as an activity only public nuisances took part in has become a major sub-culture in the City of Brotherly love.

If you’re a Philadelphia area skateboarder looking to sell your skateboard or parts, 1st United Pawn wants to buy them.  Depending on the condition of your skateboard, you could make a lot of money pawning it. Make sure your skateboard is in optimal selling condition to receive the highest payout. Here’s how:

  • Clean it. Make your skateboard look as good as the day you purchased it. If you’ve had it for a while and it’s seen better days, the skateboard will have some scuffing that you can’t fix. This is totally normal. Do your best to make the board look attractive to potential buyers.
  • Brag about it. If you’re going to pawn a custom-made skateboard, develop a list of the parts it was made with. Include information like the deck, trucks, and wheels used to make the board. Listing the parts out (including the brand name of the part) will help the pawn broker to provide you with a more accurate payout. A board made of high-end parts is going to sell for more money than a skateboard made with bargain pieces. Your list of parts will also prove that the skateboard has value and isn’t a piece of junk you found at yard sale.

Not all pawn shops buy skateboards or skateboard parts, but 1st United Pawn does! Bring yours in for a FREE item valuation.

If you have questions, a 1st United staff member can answer them between the hours of 9am-7pm, 7 days a week. Visit 1st United Pawn today for the best estimate on your skateboard.
