Diabolical
I purchase a R-6 went to have it registered and was told that the engine was stolen. I tried to return it only to be told by Dean the owner that I swapped the engines and that I was in possession of stolen property and he called the police. I lost 3,600 and a bit of faith in humanity. Don't support this store or his shenanigans the owner should be thrown in jail.

Always a pleasure!!!!
I have been going to these guys for almost 15 years now. If i ever needed fast cash, they were there for me. The atmosphere is pleasant and they're very understanding. I can tell you that they've helped me pay for my school books on more than one occasion. The price they give me on my pawns are always fair and i've never left the shop feeling like i was hard done by. Thanks guys. Pleasure as always!

Popes review ;)
Swap n shop is the best!!! The staff is cool enough to be like family and the business is all around awsome!! No contest!!
I'd give 10 stars, but I'm only allowed 5.

Reliable and honest
This place is excellent for realistically priced cheaper-than-retail goods.
The staff are all helpful and considerate, while they DO have jobs to do so seeing someone expect more for their castoffs than it's currently selling for new elsewhere - can't blame anyone for saying no way.
It's a business not a charity.

Awsome miller welder 211
Bought a miller welder for a great deal. Took it home and works awsome. The owner was very honest in the deal and look forward to going back. Thanks for reading.

ONE OF THE BEST PAWN SHOP IN OTTAWA.
They always have great service and excellent prices. I always choose this pawn shop first because they go above and beyond.

The best shop around
I have been shopping there for about 10 yrs. Great deals. Great service. They even fix items for me & repair my jewelry. I have to say that my wife loves the new white gold .90 kt diamond ring I got a couple wks ago for my 15th wed anniversary. Paid $2000. Was in peoples jewlers. Same ring was $3500. Thx guys.

NEVER A PROBLEM
WE HAVE BEEN CUSTOMERS LONG BEFORE THEY MOVED TO MERIVALE ROAD AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TREATED FAIRLY. YEARS AGO WE WOULD BRING OUR YOUNG SONS IN FOR POKEMON CARDS AND MARK (SALES ASSOCIATE) WAS ALWAYS OVERLY GENEROUS WITH THE CARDS. WE HAVE BOUGHT SO MANY ITEMS INCLUDING A HOCKEY TABLE, VIDEO GAMES, DVDS, CDS, STEREO, A BRAND NEW SCOOTER AND A LAPTOP WHICH WE HAD A MINOR PROBLEM WITH AND THEY RETURNED IT NO QUESTIONS ASKED. WE HAVE ALWAYS FELT VERY WELCOMED AND NEVER TAKEN ADVANTAGED OF. A GREAT PLACE TO SHOP FOR DEALS. --

After my divorce, this place help get me back on my feet.


After my divorce I lost all of my equipment and tools. I managed to get a few renovation jobs here and there to get going. I would stop in two to three times a week after work and buy tools that I needed.
Dean the owner has always been great to deal with, we do barter a bit back an forth but I always leave the place with a fair deal.

Just befor XMas he had a Dewalt Planer with stand for sale. We negotiated a fair price and Dean let me pay him for the planer over the next two months. I would drop off a $100 here $200 there until eventually it was paid.

They even helped me load it and put it in my truck.

The reason I am writing a review because it makes me upset to read the BS posted by a few people who actually didn't do business with this company.


Think about it for a second. It's a business. It buys at a low price and sells for a fair proffit.
I think you get terrific value for your money. I send all my friend and family to shop here.

It's better to buy used, save money and recycle than to buy new.
You get to deal with the owner Dean every time you hon in the store.

I don't work at his store, we are not friends. I am just one happy customer, don't believe me call Justin Richard at 613-323-4450

Have a good day.

Speakers
I bought a pair of KEV speakers from this store for $60 and got a great deal with a money back offer if I didn't like the sound to my satisifaction. This store is great. I don't know why there are some poor reviews. Client service was excellent. I guess you can't please everyone.

typical
Everytime I go in, the person I talk to owns one of whatever I am bringing....and yet doesn't know the particulars without looking it up on the computer.
It takes a special kind of person to hassle people coming into a pawn shop because they are down on their luck and have no where else to turn....thanks for the help..not

Honest and Fair
I have stopped by there and bought quite a few items from them and always have been satisfied.I was looking at a Panasonic Toughbook laptop new in the box for $1000. I put $100 down to hold it with full intention of buying it. When I returned 4 days later and backed out of the deal, they refunded my $100 in full, with no questions, no hassles. My only regret is that I didn't finish the purchase because it was such a great deal (they are worth $2700.)

one man's trash, another man's treasure
It's a a very safe place to shop for used items, because of the face that they do Police checks on the items being traded or sold.
