Selling To Hard To Find Records

Do you buy record collections?

keyboard_arrow_up keyboard_arrow_down

Yes we do. We have been buying and selling record collections since 1991. Simply send an email to buying@htfr.com with a list of your records along with your asking price and full contact details. If we wish to purchase your collection, we will make a formal offer via email. Please note that we do not give valuations or offers by telephone.

What is my vinyl worth?

keyboard_arrow_up keyboard_arrow_down

We are interested in purchasing record collections of all sizes and genres. The price we pay is calculated upon the condition and overall content quality of your collection.

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

IMPORTANT: We do not purchase any counterfeit or bootleg discs.

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

keyboard_arrow_up keyboard_arrow_down

In most cases, we will travel locally to buy collections of 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.
