Provident Loan Society of New York Promotes New Lending Offer Just in Time for Peak Moving Season

​​​The not-for-profit lending organization, Provident Loan Society of New York, is promoting a new lending offer to help consumers who are in need of quick cash as they move during peak moving season.

More than 40 million people move each year in the United States, and an estimated 80 percent of those moves occur between April and September. This period of time is referred to as peak moving season.

Under Provident Loan Society’s moving offer, consumers can use their collateral such as gold, silver or fine jewelry to borrow money for moving expenses and deposits instead of borrowing against credit cards or personal loans from banks.

The President of Provident Loan Society, John Higney, says this new moving program was designed to help consumers who may need quick cash for moving expenses, including deposits, credit fees, new furniture and more.

“Spring is peak season for moving, impacting the credit and expenses of thousands of Americans every year,” said Higney. “It’s harder for consumers to get out of debt when they keep borrowing money against their credit card or take personal loans from a bank. Consumers don’t realize a loan with Provident Loan Society doesn't impact their credit score. It’s more affordable than many credit card offers and doesn’t hurt your future credit score.”

This isn’t the first time Provident Loan Society has promoted a unique offer.

In January, the not-for-profit announced interest-free loans for federal government workers who were in need of quick cash due to the government shutdown. The not-for-profit board decided to offer interest-free loans for six months to help financially struggling government employees get back on their feet.

In August, Provident Loan Society promoted a back-to-school lending offer that helped students across the U.S. who were in need of quick cash.

How to Take Advantage of Back-To-School Loans with Provident Loan Society

There are several ways consumers can borrow money from Provident Loan Society of New York.

Consumers can go to one of their five locations in New York City and borrow against their collateral items in person. The jewelry or collateral items are appraised on site and cash is given on-the-spot. This loan process typically takes about 20 minutes to complete in-person.

Out-of-state consumers can also borrow money from Provident Loan Society by mail if they are in the United States (currency and customs consideration preclude business outside of this area). Once the jewelry is received, an appraiser from Provident Loan Society will tell consumers how much they can borrow with the current item. Items that are eligible for loans include diamond jewelry, gold jewelry, gold coins (only for gold content), watches and silverware. Consumers can also apply online for a collateral loan using their gold or jewelry.

New Yorkers can learn how much a loan at Provident Loan Society will cost before they even walk in the door. The Fast Cash Calculator will give consumers an estimate of how much a loan will cost, including fees and interest rates.

As the country's only not-for-profit pawnshop, interest rates at Provident Loan Society are comparable to credit cards, but typically half the cost of most commercial pawn shops. Provident Loan Society charges 13 percent for a six-month loan, while a traditional pawnbroker can charge 24 percent for the same loan.
