Because the price of electronic goods has decreased in asset value, the amount of the loan amount cannot be comparable or less close to the price of the asset. This also applies when you have not completed your installment obligations even though the loan period or tenor is at the end of time, the creditor will provide an extension on the condition that you must also pay for the collateralized goods according to the depreciation value or around 10-20%.

That's the information about pawning and electronic pawning activities that you need to know. Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages. If you have more than one electronic item and don't use it as a means of daily communication or a medium for earning a living, the choice of electronic pawning can be an option because of the fast loan process. However, if the electronic goods that will be suspended are goods that are used as objects for work, then this can be considered.

There are other options, such as applying for a loan with a vehicle BPKB guarantee or a house certificate. This will not interfere with your work because the goods guaranteed are only documents of ownership, not the vehicle or the house.
