Do you feel that chill in the air? That means that a freezing cold Canadian winter is on its way!
While there are many Canadians who love the ice and snow of wintertime, we don’t think that any of them would deny that a vacation somewhere a little warmer in the middle of winter would be nice. The cold weather and dark days can start to wear on you after a while, so a trip south can do wonders for your mental health!
The problem, of course, is that those trips can be costly, especially in the winter months. There is airfare, accommodations, meals, activities… heck, even sitting on the beach can become super pricey if you want a cool, refreshing drink by your side.
Fortunately, there is one easy method of paying for your trip, and that’s to cash in one of your investments. No, we aren’t talking about the stock market here—we’re talking about your firearms collection!
Firearm collectors around the world don’t just buy firearms because they are pretty (although many of them are). They look for specific guns because they can be incredible investments. A well-maintained firearm holds onto its value, often appreciating much faster than other collectables.
Whether you are a hardcore collector or simply have a few unused firearms, selling one or two of them can be a speedy way to make some cash to put towards a winter vacation. The trick is that you need to figure out how to sell them for the amount they are worth… not the amount that a gun store is willing to pay for them. Often, gun stores will offer you half of the actual value of your firearms. They’re always going to lowball you because that’s how they make money. And you don’t want to be lowballed—firearms are investments, and you deserve their full value!
An even worse option for selling your guns is deciding to sell them yourself on the internet. While you might get a little more money from this method, you are opening yourself up to a lot of potentially dangerous situations. There is a good chance that you might get scammed out of both your firearm AND your money, and that’s the best-case scenario. What if you sell your firearm to someone and it’s later used in a crime? If your gun license information and paperwork isn’t 100% in order, you could be held partially responsible. That’s a risk that you can’t take.
There is one method that’s 100% safe, reliable, and will bring in much more money than selling your firearm to a gun store. And that’s GTA Guns auctions!
When you’re selling your firearms, the best way to make sure you get top dollar is to sell to a huge pool of buyers.
At every GTA Guns auction, there are thousands of buyers all across North America looking for their next firearm. Many of these buyers are hardcore collectors are who deadset on finding the items they want, and then paying as much as they need to to add those items to their collection. This kind of competitive attitude can result in bidding wars, driving the value of your firearms up! You simply can’t get access to that kind of a market outside of GTA Guns auctions.
Another reason why GTA Guns auctions are the best method to sell your firearms is that we take care of darn near everything. All you need to do is safely transport your gun to our brick-and-mortar location. After that, we inspect the firearm with our GUNCHECK™ and CYCLECHECK™ services to determine their condition, take both internal and external photos, and list them on our auction site. At that point, you just sit back and watch your “vacation fund” get driven up by the bidders!
After the sale, you still don’t have to do anything. We take care of all the paperwork, making sure that everything is transferred to the new owner. The money will arrive in your account, and then you can get started booking your airfare!
If you have some unused firearms sitting in our safe storage facility or in a secure safe in your home, why not sell them? You aren’t planning on using them in the near future, they aren’t doing any good sitting around, and some collectors would pay a ton for them. To fund your dream winter vacation, it’s a no-brainer! All you have to do to get the process started is contact GTA Guns today!
If you’d like to learn more about GTA Guns auctions, or any of our other services, please feel free to contact us! Let’s earn you some money so you can take a well-deserved vacation this upcoming winter season!
