How Is Record Head Different Than a Pawn Shop in Milwaukee?

As a buy, sell and trade store, we are actually quite different than a local pawn shop. When you bring your goods into a pawn shop, you are essentially using it as collateral to obtain a loan. In other words, you could potentially lose a musical instrument at a pawn shop if you default on the loan.

At Record Head, we don’t pawn electronics. When you bring in your electronics to us, you have the option of either trading it for something in our store or getting the agreed-upon cash value for selling it outright to us.

Benefits of Record Head vs. a Pawn Shop

When you bring your electronics to Record Head to trade or sell, you’ll receive many benefits you most likely won’t receive when you go to a pawn shop with your games. Here are a few of those benefits:

  • Assistance from a knowledgeable team: All of our employees are passionate gamers just like you, so they will be able to assist you with useful recommendations and electronics advice.
  • Quality you can count on: We test everything in our store before putting it out on the shelves. So if you are trading in your used electronics, you can be confident that you will receive a quality product in exchange.
  • Ability to test out products: Some of our products, like our TVs or video games, can be hooked up in-store so you can try them out before you make a decision.
  • Warranties for new and used items: All of our products also come with warranties. You’ll receive a one-year warranty for new items and a 30-day warranty for used items.
  • Option to buy online: We carry a wide variety of our electronics online through retailers like Reverb, Amazon, and eBay. You can browse everything from stereo equipment to DVDs on our online stores and purchase them from the convenience of your home.
