Welcome to eil.com Most Wanted.
Click on the map of your choice to view our latest wanted lists!
As ever, we constantly require thousands of rare & collectable records, compact discs's and music memorabilia from the 1950's to the 2000's. If you have anything to sell from your collection or can find any of the items on the attached listing then we would love to hear from you! Perhaps your local record stores, record fairs, boot fairs, charity shops etc. have some gems hidden away that you could unearth and sell on to us at a profit? Our fair and simple buying policy is as follows:-

  1. We will buy any of the items on our current Most Wanted list at the prices stated. We may sometimes offer a reduced price if you have a large quantity of any one item and wish to sell them as a job lot. In this case the price we will offer will be based upon the quantity of units you have, how many (if any) we currently have in stock and how many we think we could sell in total. We like to negotiate!
  2. We will only buy items that are in at least excellent condition. We would obviously prefer items that are mint! Therefore, we generally do not require any records or CDs that have any of the following defects:
    Scratches, sleeve tears or creases, handwriting on labels or covers, sellotape or super glue repairs or damaged spines of covers.
    If you are unsure about an item you have please feel free to call us first to discuss, in some cases we will accept an item with minor defects if it is genuinely rare, although the price we will offer will reflect the condition. Again, please ask first before sending. We reserve the right to return any unwanted, unsolicited, damaged or counterfeit items sent in for purchase.
  3. We pay immediately!
    All payment will be despatched to you within 24 hours from receipt of your items. When sending items through the mail please ensure you keep proof of posting and use only the strongest packaging. If sending items from overseas please value the package according to the exact contents please do not overvalue as the post office will only ever compensate for the purchase price of the items and not their "collectable" value. If in doubt as to which service to use, please do not hesitate to ask us for advice. If you can personally deliver items to us we can pay you on the spot. (Please arrange in advance to ensure one of our buyers is here.)
  4. All prices quoted or listed are in UK sterling. If you prefer to trade against items we have or for a credit note that you can use at any point in the future, we will offer a higher value. However, there is no set formula to convert a cash value into a trade value so please contact us for a quote.
