Pawn Your Old Skateboard

How much is my skateboard worth?

So you want to know how much you can sell your old skateboard for? Your skateboard worth is determined by many factors. 

What determines the worth of my skateboard

There are four components that determine the worth of your skateboard. The four components are the brand, the wear, the size, and the parts of the skateboard. 

The brand

Similarly to clothes, skateboards with different brands have higher prices. The top selling skateboard brands generally look better than other ones. Some brands are more durable than others. Others wear out quickly. Different skateboards have smoother wheels and can ride more easily. Some brands are shock-resistant as this increases the quality and the price you can sell it for. Be sure to do your research on what different brands can sell for more.

The Wear

Of course, if your skateboard is brand new and you are just selling after just after you bought it, it will get more cash than if it was old with scratches. This will be the most significant factor when trying to pawn your skateboard for cash. 

The Size

There are a wide variety of sizes of skateboards. The kid skateboards generally tend to cost less than the teenage skateboards. Other boards like longboards will be priced differently than the average skateboard. 

The parts

Skateboards are made up of three main parts: the truck, the wheels, and the deck. Each of these parts can be traded and reused. When selling your skateboard, keep in mind that any one of these parts can increase the price and quality of the skateboard tremendously. For example, different decks are stronger than others and some are shock resistant, and therefore this increases the skateboard worth, quality and price. 

How to clean your skateboard before you sell it

Before selling your skateboard, be sure to make sure you polish it up and have it in the best possible condition. There are so many ways to clean your skateboard. Here, you are going to see just one of the many ways. 

To clean your skateboard, you are going to need the following materials

  • Crepe rubber
  • Steel Brushes
  • Toothbrush
  • Rag or Paper towel

The rubber will be used to remove dust on the surface. To remove stubborn stains, use a steel wire brush. Dip your brush in water, scrub an area, pat it off with a rag or paper towel. To wipe the dust away from the steel brush, just use the crepe rubber. If you don’t have crepe rubber, you can use a scrubber in its place. For stains or dirt in small areas such as under the skateboard, use a toothbrush for a deep clean. But, keep in mind that toothbrushes won’t do much good on your grip tape. Then finish cleaning with a piece of natural rubber.
