Better than a pawn shop

The Unbeatable Unbolted Loan

Our co-founders were surprised to discover the high interest rates individuals were paying when they borrowed against their assets. They knew that the top clients of private banks were being charged significantly lower interest rates than most people.

So they founded Unbolted to help people unlock the money tied up in their valuables at interest rates that are significantly less than the high street lender.

How can Unbolted charge less?

The same way Amazon, Google and all of the other modern business do it. They built the business today using the best processes and technology to make it is a simple and convenient as possible. And they added a peer-to-peer lending platform to make it even less costly to borrow against your valuables!

At Unbolted, we know the educated customer is our best customer. So we publish every month the comparable APRs* pawnbrokers quote on their websites. You can still check for yourself but we like to make it easy for our customers. Our representative APR is 40.3%.

That is why we also offer the Unbolted Guarantee. If you can find a better rate, we will beat it.
