Selling Your Record Collection Made Easy


We Also Buy Records

If you’re looking to sell some vinyl or an entire record collection, you’ve come to the right place. We’re happy to explore any high-quality assortment of pre-owned vinyl records, whether it’s your own collection or if selling on behalf of a loved-one who no longer needs them.

Our track record speaks for itself; we consistently offer competitive prices and many people who have sold to us have recommended Vinyl Value Records to friends and neighbours who wish to off-load their collections. If we are not able to buy any records, we will gladly provide you with options and advice.

We can arrange for you to bring your collection to us at our southwest Hertfordshire base or, alternatively, we can visit you if you live within a 30 minutes drive.  For smaller collections (50 LPs or fewer), it is normally more advisable to bring your records to us for examination and an instant offer.

Contact us to arrange a quote based on the value/rarity of the vinyl and the condition of both the record itself and the sleeve. Visit our Gradings page to assess your vinyl for quality.
