Need cash now? Here are the best pawn shops in Perth that can help you

Becoming an adult comes with the added burden of receiving bills and thinking about how to pay them when you’re also struggling to put food on the table. Loans, which are a common way out of these, can take time to process and may not even get approved.

So in desperate times, I turned to the ones that I knew could provide quick help: pawn shops. They’ll take almost anything valuable without worrying about credit checks or all the other formalities banks have, making it easy to get cash quickly.

If you’re also in need of quick cash right now, here are the pawn shops that have helped my family and me.

Cash City

Location: 5/1340 Albany Hwy, Cannington


Contact details: (08) 9350 6440, 0412021400; [email protected] 

Operating hours: 

Monday to Thursday: 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM

Friday: 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM

When it comes to pawn shops in Perth, Cash City is probably one of the most popular and most established. I’ve heard of it from a lot of people around me and have personally used its help for a small loan when I was struggling financially.

I once pawned a gold bracelet for quick cash, and the whole transaction went smoothly. The staff at the counter explained the terms and conditions thoroughly and was more than willing to answer all my questions.

Aside from gold items, they also accept other valued items, like silver, coins, and other types of jewellery. They’re a licensed gold buyer, so they can also buy your gold if you think you won’t be able to pay the loan and interest.

Pro Tip: Cash City has 8 locations all over metro Perth, so you can just drop by the place you’re closest to. Aside from Cannington, they also have one in Belmont, Guildford, Morley, Armadale, Midland, Balcatta, and Joondalup.

Instant Cash Pawnbrokers

Location: Chalgrove Ave, Rockingham


Contact details: 08 9528 3838

Operating hours: Monday to Saturday: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Established in 2003, Instant Cash Pawnbrokers is another trusted pawn shop in Perth. The pawn shop accepts almost just about anything with value as collateral, from fine jewellery to vehicles.

A relative pawned a necklace here and said the transaction went by relatively fast. They appraised the value of the necklace, and when they both agreed to the price, she got the cash quickly and was out of the store.

I dropped by to inquire about selling my Xbox and found the staff to be quite friendly. They did offer a good amount, but I really only asked for this article and didn’t have a concrete plan for selling it, so I didn’t push through with the transaction.

Pro Tip: If you’re looking to buy jewellery, gadgets, power tools, guitars, and more, Instant Cash Pawnbrokers offer lots of them at bargain prices. They also accept EFTPOS, so drop by when you’re free to look at their inventory.

Cash Converter

Location: 4/129 Russell St, Morley


Contact details: +61 8 9211 5777, +61 8 6317 9170; [email protected]  

Operating hours: Monday to Saturday: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Another established and well-known pawn shop in Perth is Cash Converter. It has 25 locations in Western Australia, 19 of which are located in Perth and its suburbs, so it’s one of the most accessible pawn shops to locals.

I loaned a camera to them back in college because I really needed cash, and they were more than kind enough to help me. I was quite scared that I wouldn’t be getting my camera back in good condition once I paid my loan, but they took great care of it.

You can also pawn your vehicle, jewellery, gold, designer handbags, gaming consoles, tools, and more as long as they are of good value. If you don’t have any, Cash Converter offers personal loans that might be more suitable.

Pro Tip: If you’re buying something from them, make sure to check the item thoroughly first. One of the speakers my friend bought here stopped working after a few hours, and the warranty-claiming process was quite a hassle.
