As the UK economy continues to struggle and people are finding it harder and harder to secure loans, many consumers are turning to pawnbrokers to solve their financial problems. When people think of pawnbrokers, they nearly always imagine run-down backstreet shops filled with old TVs and Hi-fis. However, the modern pawnbrokers in London are keen to escape this image and re-invent themselves as the modern alternative to traditional loans.
The common misconception that people have regarding pawnbrokers is that they will only buy your products off you for a fraction of what they’re worth and then sell them on to other people for a large profit. This might have been true in the past and indeed could still be the case in less reputable services. However, the role of the pawnbroker in the modern era is completely different.
At Hopkins & Jones, we have a strong reputation of upholding the ethics of Pawnbroker. As we do not take advantage of vulnerable people, but rather, we help them out of their difficult times. There are countless of pawnbroker companies who takes advantage of their clients by ripping them off their valuables. They loan their clients £1,000 while they demand collateral worth £5,000 at the same time, giving them unfavorable terms and condition to pay back the loan. At Hopkins & Jones, we are a passionate firm who always look after the needs of our clients and always but their interest above ours and our reputation speak for itself. With over 76 years of experience in the Pawnbroker’s industry, you can always count on us to give you the best offer there is.
A brief history
Hopkins & Jones, who is a trade member of The NPA (The National Pawnbrokers Association) was established in 1853 as Hayward & Sintzenich with premises in Sackville Street, London W1. When the business was purchased by the two leading members of staff, Louis Hopkins and Llewellyn William Jones in 1941, the premises moved to Regency House in Piccadilly, then to Carlos Place, Mayfair. In 1979 Hopkins & Jones moved to our present address in William IV Street, WC2.
