The process of selling valuables in Tacoma is easy when you come to Bellevue Rare Coins. Here’s how it works:
Our offers are always no-obligation, so you are free to shop around if you’d like. However, Bellevue Rare Coins offers top dollar for all sorts of valuables, so you’re unlikely to find a better offer anywhere else.
Depending on what you’re trying to sell, you may wish to look into other reputable businesses in the Tacoma area. For instance, Bellevue Rare Coins does not typically purchase art, furniture, or other large items. For these types of items, it’s best to search Google for buyers of these items.
Just be sure to research thoroughly, and make sure you’re selling to a reputable business. You can look at customer reviews and/or ratings from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). It’s a good idea to avoid Seattle pawn shops, because they don’t pay nearly what your items are worth!
Selling directly to another individual can work for some items, but caution is required — particularly if you’re dealing with high-value items. It’s always wise to meet in public places with video cameras, like bank parking lots or even police station parking lots.
To find individuals to sell to, you can use various online marketplaces like Craigslist, OfferUp, or Facebook Marketplace.
Yes — another option might be to sell your items online, and mail them to the buyer. You can do this through platforms like eBay or Amazon, or directly to a business that specializes in the type of item you’re hoping to sell.
This approach can work well for some people, but it definitely requires more effort. Also, keep in mind that you’ll have to ship the items, so account for that cost in your pricing. Plus, platforms like eBay charge fees to sellers (often of 10% or more).
The first step in selling valuables is to figure out what they’re worth, so that you can price them appropriately. For Tacoma-area residents, come into Bellevue Rare Coins to have your valuables appraised for free. We’ll make you a cash offer for your items, and buy them same-day if you’d like to sell.
