Excellent Service. I sold some gold and silver today and I am very happy with the price I received. They were polite and made me feel comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone.
SEE FOR YOURSELF ! ! ! ! – I wanted to sell some of my old jewelery.So,I went to get it appraised @ the Famous "Great Estate Roadshow".After the appraisal,another victim uh,customer recommended Budget Buy & Sell. I was a little hesitant at first(after reading some unfavorable reviews).But,I said what the heck & gave them a try.After walking in,i was treated with courtesy and respect.When artie showed me the calculator,I almost fainted! The appraisal was 3x more than the original appraisal i received from the not -so-great estate roadshow.I am telling all of my friends & family about Budget Buy & Sell. Go get appraisals @ different locations.Then,see them last.You wont be disapointed!
Honest and more than fair – James, the owner, could not have been more helpful. I was nervous about selling my old gold and about what to expect since it was the first time I'd ever been in a pawn shop. He was very nice and understanding. After looking over my pieces he gave me a price which I felt was more than generous, certainly more than I expected. He even persuaded me not to sell one piece as the senitmental value was probably more than what he could give me. I have since returned to sell some other pieces and will go back again. I've recommended them to my friends who have since had the similar experiences with Budget Buy and Sell. I feel comfortable going in there and find them to be honest and fair in all their dealings

They prove the scummy thieving pawnshop stereotype – Most money for your gold? What a crock. Not only do they give you the least they can, they assume everyone trying to sell, stole whatever it is they have. Now, I understand in their line of work they have to keep an open eye, seeing as I'm sure they get stolen goods time and time again. However, if you're a 20 year old male and maybe you forgot to shave that morning and you come in wearing a hoodie; they assume your a drug addict and treat you like dirt. I went to sell them my gold necklace and they asked me a million questions as to where i got it and why i was selling it. They offered me 20 bucks. I went to a jeweler who gave me 100 for it. It doesn't occur to them that a 20 year old male in school full time, may have nice things they need to sell due to the fact they have a ton of bills. I don't know a single person who has gone there and had anything good to say. I highly recommend you go there if you want to be treated like dirt by the scum of long island, and get no money for whatever you have; and further more, possibly have the police knocking on your door because you needed some extra cash. Biggest crooks in the business.
Budget Buy and Sell – i had a watch to sell... the young man took care of my order and got me the cash fast... id get ANYTHING from those guys. ;)
Budget Buy and Sell – We had an accumulation gold jewelry.
The guys explained everything - from troy ounces, penny weights, how the refinery works etc... We knew we were getting the best price.
It is true, the more you bring in, the better price you are going to get. You can not compare 1 gold coin to a mound of gold. You just won't get the same rates.
I left feeling very good and NOT like I was ripped off.
We were going to go to the small mom and pop's jewelry place at first, but felt like they were only out to pay their rent. I am very glad we chose Budge Buy and Sell.
I recently went to Budget Buy and Sell and sold some of my used jewelry. They were efficient in going through my pieces and gave me a sum beyond my expectations. I was also very impressed by the variety of items they had in the store, especially some of the non-jewlery items. Overall it was a great experience and i would certainly suggest them to a friend.
WARNING - DO NOT LET THESE PEOPLE TAKE ADVANTAGE – They outright lie to you on the phone to bait you in offering fair discounts (i.e. 97% of spot market) for pure gold or silver coins/bullion; they offered me only 90% when I got there, eventually stating that I needed 10 ounces of gold or more (i.e. about $10,050) to get this rate. Furthermore, I called two times in advance to verify their pricing and quantity was never mentioned on the phone (and I think that I may have eluded to it being 1 or 2 one-ounce gold coins).
The reason I called two times is because I fell for their advertising at the beginning of the summer when my wife and I wanted to get rid of some old jewelry. Being somewhat savvy I pre-calculated the value; after considering the purity rate, a 30% margin for them, an excessive 20% processing charge, and a 3% loss rate they only offered about 75% of that number. Only after I had talked to them for a while, proving that I was not an idiot did they offer me 95% (they also gave me some macho wannbe sales pitch about them wanting to do the right thing).
Since I already spent an hour or so (after work on Friday) to get there I agreed to sell at that rate only to be further aggravated when five or more minutes later they tell me that they want to give me a check. I refused.
After some ending conversation subtly pointing out their dishonest business practices; one guy said he sleeps well at night (so did Bernie Madoff) . I vented and called them a bunch crooks as I slowly walked out and left those parasites behind.
