Our business model is geared toward higher-ticket, more valuable items. We try to let customers know upfront that we typically don't make offers on items worth less than $100--the less expensive items just aren't compatible with our business model.

Recessions can be trying times for even the most financially secure individuals and families. Raising cash in the midst of a recession may seem like a daunting task in light of soaring unemployment rates and plummeting home values. Yet, among these trying times opportunities exist to raise cash through an innovative service offered by Jay Brokers.
Jay Brokers specializes in helping individuals and businesses raise cash through the liquidation of valuable gadgets and other high-tech items such as laptops, MP3 players, and digital cameras. The unique service provides a lump sum of cash in exchange for customers' items. Jay Brokers incorporates a transparent approach by providing customers with a guaranteed offer based on current fair market values as determined by recent sales between real buyers and sellers.
Owner Justin Pepple says, "Our approach is unlike any other in the industry. We don't just make subjective offers to customers. Instead, we tell customers upfront what their item is realistically worth, and then we make a guaranteed offer based on the item's fair market value. Our customers have the opportunity to compare the fair market value to the guaranteed offer and determine if our service is worth the difference."
Jay Brokers' transparent approach allows the customer to intelligently decide between keeping an item, selling privately, or utilizing Jay Brokers' service. "Customers are often pleasantly surprised to discover the value of their laptop, iPod, or iPhone," says Pepple. "Occasionally though, some customers are slightly disappointed, forgetting how quickly technology depreciates. Regardless, our customers can make an informed decision without feeling like they are being taken advantage of, or low-balled."
Of course Jay Brokers' service comes with a small cost, which usually accounts for about 20-30% of an item's value. For example, a customer may be able to sell a laptop privately on a website such as Craigslist for $1,500. With Jay Brokers, the customer has the option of receiving an instant cash payout of $1,200. In the previous example, most customers find the $300 difference worth it, especially considering the time and effort saved by using Jay Brokers.
"We are delighted to help our customers raise cash in exchange for their gadgets and gismos. In these rough times, customers are better off to sell a MacBook and raise some cash than to default on a car loan or lose their home to foreclosure," says Pepple. Jay Brokers' service is quickly gaining popularity among customers seeking to raise cash, particularly with fast payment options including overnight check and PayPal.
There is one slight caveat for those seeking to raise cash. Jay Brokers makes offers on nearly any gadget or electronic item worth over $100. "Our business model is geared toward higher-ticket, more valuable items. We try to let customers know upfront that we typically don't make offers on items worth less than $100--the less expensive items just aren't compatible with our business model." As a result, customers with less expensive items worth less than $100 may choose to sell on Craigslist or host a garage sale.
"Surviving the down economy is entirely possible--you just need to strategically take a look at your possessions of value and determine which ones you can part with. Chances are, you probably have some valuable items that you can live without. At the very least, we can tell you what your items are worth," says Pepple. Jay Brokers encourages curious customers to visit their website and fill out a brief quote form to receive a fair market value report along with a personalized guaranteed offer.
Jay Brokers was established in 2000 and has issued thousands of guaranteed offers to customers all across the United States. Jay Brokers is an eBay Platinum PowerSeller with customer satisfaction exceeding 99.5%. Jay Brokers is headquartered within the metro Atlanta area in Canton, Georgia.
