WHAT IS PAWN?
Pawning is much like getting a secured loan from a bank or traditional loan company. The borrower provides suitable items of value as collateral. The items are held by the pawn broker until the loan is repaid with interest. If the loan is not repaid as set forth in the loan agreement the collateral lawfully becomes the property of the lender.

Questions most frequently asked by Volunteer PawnBrokers loan customers:
Is there a limit total amount I can borrow from Volunteer PawnBrokers?
Answer: The only limit is the amount we will loan on a single item of collateral. When you need cash beyond the single item limit, you can offer multiple items for collateral. Given the total value and number of items, you can borrow thousands when you need it.
I do not want to lose my pawned items. How long do I have to redeem them?
Answer: There is a 30-day (grace) period past your maturity date in which to redeem your items. To redeem your property, present your pawn ticket and repay the loan plus the up-to-date interest.
If the loan is still within the initial 30 day grace period, you may request an extension. Bring your pawn ticket and pay the interest due to extend your loan.
If I do not redeem, pay interest or extend within the grace period, what happens?
Answer: By Tennesse State Law, your items become the legal property of the lender (pawnbroker).
What can I do if my pawn ticket is lost or destroyed?
Answer: Go immediately to Volunteer PawnBrokers. If your items have not been redeemed and you are within the grace period, you can complete and submit a lost ticket request. Bring the same photo identification card you used when pawning your items.
