  • Selling to us is easier than selling it yourself – If you have a collection of 30 records, that would be 30 different listings on Ebay, lots of questions to deal with, 20 different parcels to package (as at least 10 won't sell), dealing with items missing or damaged in the post and possible fraud. So often a daunting and time consuming task, it's much better to leave all that to us.
  • So if you want the best deal for your records, CDs or memorabilia, just call or email us today.
