Okay, so today’s question is one that is actually very easy to answer.
What people want to know is how do you go about pawning an Xbox One.
This is going to be a very straightforward process, and there really isn’t much to it when you get right down to it.
The first thing you want to do is try and clean up the Xbox, removing any heavy debris, or significant marks that can be removed.
The goal here is to make your Xbox look as new as possible.
One thing that I am aware of with an Xbox one is that the glossy top portion of it does tend to scratch very easily. Unfortunately, there really isn’t too much you can do about that with this system.
It’s just the type of plastic that they use that is prone to this kind of marking that other systems don’t seem to have a problem with.
But you should definitely try and make sure that you remove any kind of heavy marks, marker, stickers, or anything else that may be accumulated on the system over time.
This of course also includes trying to dust it out. This can easily be accomplished by using a can of compressed air. Obviously, you don’t want to take your Xbox One to pawn shop looking like it has half a cat in it.
What Else Should You Do Before Taking Your Xbox One Into A Pawn Shop
You will also want to make sure that you have all of the parts and pieces that originally came with your Xbox. For instance, you will definitely want to make sure that you have the power supply, otherwise known as the brick.
Without the power brick, most pawn shops won’t take in your Xbox One simply because they won’t be able to test it. Even if they are able to test it, they won’t be in a position where they could easily resell it should they have to do.
Additionally, you should make sure that you have one or both controllers with you.
If your Xbox One originally came with the Kinect sensor, make sure that you take that with you to the pawn shop as well as it could help you get more money for your system.
Lastly, you want to make sure that you take at least one game with you. This is important so that the pawn shop can test the system to ensure that it works in the event that they don’t already have an Xbox One game in their store.
If you happen to still have the original packaging, or box, they came with the system when you originally purchased it and you should include that as well.
Most pawn shops really like to see that type of thing come into their stores when people bring in things like video game systems.
