Just wondering what the best way to go about selling vinyls is? Any advice accepted. good.gif

I have a long story re vinyls, which I won't bore you with! :)

The upshot, however, is that the advice that I was given, by a dealer, was to take them to a record shop which buys and sells old vinyl.

Well I'm starting to catalogue mine, Im taking out all the Picture Cover and Picture disc ones, putting in order of Artist (alphabeticaly) and then looking up the mint price online, I will then half the mint price (as mine are in very good to good condition) and sell either online in a collectors forum, ebay, auction, etc.

The rest that are plain disc I will also catalogue, will take out the ones worth more than £5 and sell the ones worth £5 or less at a car boot for 50p - £1 each. Thats the best way I can think of doing it without losing out on money by selling bulk to a records shop.

That reminds me......a few years ago, I did a carboot sale and before we had even got out of the car, someone was knocking on the window and asking if we had any records!

Haha, yes noggin, I do regular car boot sales, you always get people sifting through your stuff before you unpack, looking through your window and they even open your boot for you....but you have to be careful, stuff can get stolen when they do.

Try Record Collector magazine,tis very good. As for car boot sales,I've flogged stuff at those that I thought I couldn't give away with bribes!! I've also sold stuff which I've deeply,deeply regretted ever since. The biggest up-cock being Jethro Tull's 'Thick as a Brick' LP. Some stuff should simply never be sold,and it's no good coming to realise that after the deed is done,with the purchaser disappearing and chuckling into the ether,like a thief in the night.

Yeah Laserguy, know the feeling. Think I've a couple of Jethro Tull vinyls. All the vinyls I have are 7" singles/compilations. I found a very rare few...got lots of Elvis ones from 1950's/60's, a Beatles one, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, Slade, Nazareth, the rare one I found was an Everly Brothers one from the 1950's.

Haven't came across that one yet. I've got through1 1/2 of the 12 boxes, so all the Picture sleeve ones are catalogued in excel and about 40 clean white sleeved ones. Total catalogued now stands at 290 vinyls....well over 1000 still to go, the rest are all company Sleeves and plain Cardboard Sleeves.

Ok. What sort of era are these records?

Sounds like you need to get a specialist to look at them. I know the latter Now's on Vinyl (30 -35) sold on Ebay for near £100. Since the recession, they dropped to around £30.

They range from mid 1950's to Early 1990's, most of the records are 1970's. The earliest I have is 1956 Elvis Presley but not in original sleeve. Got about 10 Elvis singles from the 1950's including some Limited Edition Collectors Gold standards, all the Elvis ones are RCA's, pictures of a little dog beside a Gold Grammy phone on the records.

I'd want to discuss any Jethro Tull that might be in there.... Now if only I still had a record player I could justify them to SWMBO

Could be a while yet Ian, probably beginning of next week. Got a whole load of CD's to do for someone, around 80 albums. But will continue to do bits and bobs every day. No rush, they ain't going anywhere unless someone wants to buy the whole lot for £750, which I doubt, but selling seperately will make me more than that.

Hi TW, I am sure you may shift a few on here if you put the list out. I would be interested myself in seeing what you have managed to find, I'll wait to see the list if you decide to post it :D
