After a turbulent year in 2020, we’re all getting our financial houses in order and preparing for what is often a leaner month than most, this January. But it needn’t be so free of joy, if you happen to have a bit of scrap gold lying around.
In fact, UK Scrap Gold could help make January not so lean afterall, given the recent run-up in gold prices.
Prices near record highs
Unprecedented economic uncertainty in the past twelve months, over Brexit and the pandemic has been effectively baked into gold prices, pushing them to new all-time highs. As a result, the gold scrap in your home is worth significantly more than at any time in living memory.
This gives holders of scrap items something of a COVID dividend, but it pays to keep a close eye on precise price movements, to time a sale with UK Scrap Gold perfectly. Check out our Live Gold Price tracker, to keep an eye on where gold prices are going. In the event of a further rally, you could expect to make a significant sum by selling with us.
Just one gram of 9-carat scrap gold is worth £15.67 at present prices, as of January 2021. If you wish to get a near-instant valuation of your gold without having to set foot outside your front door, use our Scrap Gold Calculator on our home page – it’s able to combine the purity and weight of your item and give a quick estimate of how much you could sell it for.
Unable to value them yourself or unsure how to assess purity? Why not mail it over to us, and we can weigh it for you over video link on Skype, to give you peace of mind.
Safe dispatch over lockdown
COVID-19 cases are up and lockdown conditions are back in place, so that means we all need to minimise contact with those outside our households as much as possible to halt the spread of COVID-19. Many of our customers are keen to avoid long queues at the Post Office to send their scrap gold items, as this increases risk of exposure.
Why not book for Royal Mail collection from your front door? Parcel collection is available through the Royal Mail website and through the official app. This saves precious time and helps minimise the spread of COVID-19. Using the Track Your Item feature, it’s possible to guarantee safe delivery of your precious metals items to us.
UK Scrap Gold have been facilitating sales of scrap gold for many years, and we continue to strive at delivering a top-notch service, despite the ongoing pandemic. If you would like to make any enquiries or make a sale today, please call our team on 01902 623 254.
