Gold & Precious Metals

We lend on gold that is yellow, white or rose coloured from 9ct to 24ct. We also lend on gold bullion, silver and platinum.

  • Gold is measured in carats - a unit of purity out of 24 - with each carat indicating 1/24th of the whole. Typically, gold jewellery in the UK is 9, 18 and 22ct.
     
    When we consider any type of item containing gold, we look at the percentage of gold within a particular piece in relation to the daily gold trading price. Each asset must have a minimum value of £1,500.
  • You have a number of options for getting your gold to us:

    •  

      Special Delivery Label: Use a free & insured Special Delivery Label to send your gold to us for a guaranteed next day delivery

      Collection: Depending on the value of the gold, we can send a courier to pick it up and deliver it to us with the highest level of attention and security. Of course, we'll arrange this at a time and place convenient for you

    •  

      Home appraisal: If you have a high-value gold asset or you are looking to use multiple assets to secure your loan, one of our expert appraisers can come to you to appraise your assets on location

  • With Borro, you have the confidence of end-to-end insurance. That means your gold is protected from the moment it leaves your hands, until you have it safely and securely returned to you, once your loan is repaid.

    The minimum insurance is the fair market value of your assets; never less, often more. This is provided by both our courier and storage partners, as well as by our own insurance, which is provided by underwriters who are part of Lloyds of London. Need we say more?

The first loan I completed was against a silver piece tea set, I visited the offices and they even came down to help me carry my items, and they were very charming. The money I raised was fair so I have continued to come back with other items, generally jewellery.” — A customer with irregular cash flows
