Why are we the area’s leading gold buyer?
In northern Nevada we are proud of our gold buying reputation. We have a simple philosophy, treat others as you would want to be treated. With this in mind, when you come to one of our gold buying facilities to sell gold we will have not only our best interest in mind, but yours as well. With this simple philosophy and the largest gold buying team in the state we provide Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Minden, Gardnerville, Fernley, Fallon, Dayton, Truckee, and all of northern Nevada with a great place to sell gold.
What is your knowledge level?
Many gold buyers size up each customer as they walk through the door. If the customer has no idea what something is worth, the gold buyer may go ‘cheap’ on pricing. Some of these gold buyers will go cheap form the start, others will start with a fair price on the first item and then back the price off on the second. If the customer is still willing to sell for less then they will just continue to get cheaper on each additional item. Unfortunately, some of these unscrupulous gold buyers use your trust against you.At Northern Nevada Coin, we train our gold buyers to be consistant and fair with every person. No matter which location you are in Reno or Carson City, or which of our gold buyers you are working with, our goal is to provide you with consistently fair pricing, no matter who you are. We regularly have customers that bring in gold that they think is only worth a few hundred that walk out with between $1,000-$2,000. If a gold buyer were sizing them up, they may only walk away with the few hundred they thought they were going to get. But not at Northern Nevada Coin, doing the right thing every time is important to us.
What is your gold buyer’s knowledge level?
With the modern day gold rush we are seeing numerous new gold buyers. Jewelers, pawn shops, check cashing or title loans, and a host of other people are now all buying gold. While the basic principles of buying gold remain the same few have the knowledge or discernment to help you maximize your dollars. Most will buy your items for gold price and then try to find out if what they have bought is rare. Or in some cases they may never know and send rare items they have bought off to a refinery. This scenario is most often seen in the coin realm. We have bought numerous items for many multiples of the gold content because of a coins rarity. Selling for gold content would have been a travesty. Yet, on a daily basis un-knowledgeable people are selling to un-knowledgable gold buyers and losing most of the value they should have received.
At Northern Nevada Coin we have trained experts who can maximize the dollars in your pocket. Our gold buyers know when to further investigate the items you are selling. In fact, Allen Rowe of Northern Nevada Coin is the only person in Northern Nevada that is a member of the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG). By coming to the gold experts at Northern Nevada Coin you can rest assured that your items will be examined and properly evaluated and paid for.
The size of the company is important
When it comes to business we have a simple belief, ‘either your company is growing or its dying.’ Just like our bodies each business has its own cycles. A young company grows but an old one fades away. Our company is still growing. We are far from infancy and have a tremendous amount of knowledge to offer. Conversely, we are not on the decline. Our company is in the prime and it shows. We have heard smaller companies say to others that larger ones can not pay as much, but that is not true. In fact if you look at when the other Reno gold buyers do price comparisons they leave us out. One Reno gold buyer claims to be paying more than the competition and even gives a chart of where he paid 15+ to 40+% higher than five other offers received. But, this Reno gold buyer did not compare himself to our company. His published ‘nobody pays more’ price was 8-10% less than our standard buy price. It is easy to find cheap gold buyers out there, but it is hard to beat our prices.
Our company continues to grow because of our great reputation and strong buy prices. Smaller companies remain small because they see only their own good and therefore fewer people want to work with them. We want everyone to be a winner in all of our dealings. A small company may be able to sprint a short ways when competing, but we look at the big picture. A long steady pace keeps us ahead of the rest. If you are looking for a gold buyer that is fair, knowledgeable, and responsible look no further. Northern Nevada Coin is your company.
What about the refineries?
Generally refineries do not deal with the public. Laws and regulations require a large amount of information from those who deal with refineries. It is not practical for a refinery to deal with the general public as every customer has to have a tremendous amount of documentation. Some gold buyers claim to be refineries, but if you are not filling out packets of information before you sell to them, then they are probably a subsidiary running just as any other gold buyer would. We have seen a host of hotel buyers claim that they are the refinery and by selling to them you will cut out the middle man. What we want you to know is that often our gold buyers are paying much more than these buyers. The next time you hear them say this, we invite you to go and get their prices and then come and get ours. We firmly believe that you will be selling your gold to us.
Local is important
Some gold buyers are setting up in hotels all around the country. Selling gold to hotel gold buyers has more profound effects on you and your community than you may initially think. Profits leave your community and go to where ever the gold buyers are from. Next time you see a gold buyer in a hotel do an internet search for them. Often you cannot even find information on the company set up. If information is found it is usually what I like to call a ‘faux’ website. No physical address, no real ties to anywhere, just a webpage that can be built in a matter of minutes and taken down when ever they deem. If you can not find out about who you are dealing with how do you know if they will be fair with you? On top of that most local gold buyers will pay more than the hotel buyers. Hotel buyers are widely known for paying some of the lowest prices in the industry.
Selling your gold locally keeps our economy strong. Our company employs well over twenty people. These are your friends and neighbors who care for you and the community they live in. Being the largest gold buyer in the Reno, Sparks, Carson City, and Lake Tahoe area our company can be tied to numerous organizations that we support locally. Northern Nevada Coin is proud to be part of our community and its events. We support law enforcement and their efforts to catch criminals. We follow all laws and assist where ever we can to help stop the sale of stolen property.
Whether in Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Lake Tahoe, Minden, Gardnerville, Dayton, Truckee, Fallon, Fernley, or anywhere else in northern Nevada our gold buyers are ready to serve you. We want to work with you and are willing to meet or beat any other legitimate offer, but we feel that your best offer will most likely already be coming from us. We are often told that we are the best gold buyer around, and this is something we are proud to hear. Thank you.
