Consumers Look to Arch Enterprises about How and Where to Sell Silver

Mexico, Mo (October 2010) -- You can hardly drive down the street, read the newspaper, or watch TV these days without seeing an ad from someone wanting to buy your gold, but what about silver? It is not uncommon for most households to have plenty of old sterling silverware, serving platters, coins and jewelry. And with the price of silver exceeding $20 per troy ounce, consumers want to know how to sell silver they have lying about.

To help consumers, Silver Refiner Arch Enterprises has recently launched a new website dedicated totally to silver refining. Intended to complement its successful, Silver and Gold Refining Blog, the site provides a simple three step process whereby consumers can calculate the value of their silver items, request an estimate, and download shipping materials.

"We want our customers to know how much their items are worth before they send them to us," said Julie DiNatale, national sales manager for Arch. "That is why we provide tools like an online silver value calculator and educational videos and then encourage people to request an estimate. People should not only understand the value of their items, but also appreciate the costs involved to refine them and put them back into industry."

As silver refiners, Arch has worked for over 13 years with manufacturers and medical practices refining scrap film, x-rays, and other industrial by-products containing silver. Its customers have included two of the largest film producers in the world and 8 of the largest hospital chains in the U.S.

"Our traditional customers had a solid understanding for the silver refining process so educating them was not very necessary," said DiNatale. "Serving less informed consumers is more challenging and that is why we created this site and our Gold and Silver Refining Blog where consumers can ask questions of our refining experts."
