Yes, Air Purifiers can be pawned at pawn shops, but not always. So, it is always better to call your local pawn shop before visiting them.

Now a smart pawn broker might want your air purifier but that doesn’t mean he is going to give you your air purifier’s worth. Here are some tips on getting the best deal for your air purifier at a pawn shop.
Tips on Selling Your Air Purifiers to a Pawn Shop
There is no doubt that your air purifier can sell at a better price on online marketplaces such as eBay and amazon but usually, these take time to sell. Pawn shops are a great way to get quick cash. They either buy your item or offer you a loan and keep the item as security.
Make it Work and Change Filters
Make sure it’s working so that it doesn’t need any repairs or maintenance. Also, buy some new filters, it’s a good idea to change the filter before you take it to the shop. Doing this is going to get you a good price.
Make sure that there are no dust and smudges on your air purifier. Air purifiers are supposed to keep the air clean; nobody would consider buying an air purifier that’s dirty.
Remember to Call Before
It’s a good idea to call a pawn shop and ask if they will take an air purifier before taking your heavy air purifier to the shop. If they already have multiple Air purifiers in stock chances are they won’t take it.
Check Current Air Purifier Prices on Amazon
Pawn shops usually offer items at 50% of the actual price and they buy from you at 20-30% of the actual price. It’s a good idea to find the current actual price of your air purifier. Amazon is a great place for authentic prices.
What is it Selling For on eBay
Pawn Brokers these days are smart. They usually check prices on eBay before they even offer you a price. So you should also check the price you’re getting on eBay.
