Selling To HTFR

What is my vinyl worth?

keyboard_arrow_up keyboard_arrow_down

Our unique Buy My Vinyl system provides a searchable list of vinyl records and CDs, and makes an instant price offer.

We are interested in all types of Vinyl and CD collections and pay probably the best prices in the world. The price we pay is calculated upon the condition and the overall content quality of your collection.

The "Buy My Vinyl" system is there for your benefit. Check your record collection there, as we may be able to offer a higher price than anywhere else for specific records from your collection. Please be aware that your record must match our database entry exactly to qualify for the price stated, so please check carefully before sending.

To maximise the amount we will pay for your collection please ensure that it is as presentable as possible ie, ensure that records are in their correct sleeves, all price labels have been removed and the vinyl is in good clean condition.

I have a lot of vinyl to sell, do you collect?

keyboard_arrow_up keyboard_arrow_down

We will travel locally in the West Midlands to buy collections around 2,000 units, anywhere in the UK for collections over 3000 units and anywhere in the World for collections over 10,000 units.

We will always make you an offer and promise to take care of everything for you, even if that means us having to unload 10,000 records from your loft or down 10 flights of stairs.
