- What items we require
Our fair and simple buying policy is as follows:
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!
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
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.)
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.
Trade Credit offer:
The process is as easy as selling your items for cash, BUT we will offer you significantly more above a cash value! - check it out here
