First came plastic Tupperware parties and now sitting rooms across the UK are hosting ‘Gold Tupperware Parties’ – the so-called sociable and fashionable way to get rid of unwanted jewellery.
According to a survey by the Financial Mail, however, opportunistic buyers could be exploiting party hosts and their guests by offering them as little as £1 per gram, compared with a scrap rate of around £6 per gram.
“Door to door companies that set up these parties via leaflet drops are not offering sellers the true value for their unwanted gold,” says Vivien Brown of top gold buying website Post Gold Get Cash. “It is so important that sellers go to the reputable website that has a proven track record of high customer service and seller satisfaction.”
Post Gold Get Cash only sends money to customers when they are 100% satisfied with the valuation. There is no rush to make a decision on your valuation or pressure to sell. Brown adds: “The idea of selling in a high spirited party atmosphere just doesn’t make sense. Always go to a trusted, reputable website for the best service and the best deal on your gold.”
