SELL YOUR RECORDS
Bringing Your Music For Sale Or Trade
Are you looking to part with your music or music-related items? Whether you have a few rare items or an entire collection, we can help. If you’re looking for cash or trade, we can help!
What You Can Expect In Value
We understand that you’re looking for some value from your used media. But first and foremost, we are a retail business – we need to turn a profit on the goods we buy.
Record Collectors Paradise takes pride in offering fair and knowledgeable evaluations on the goods we buy, sell and exchange. Using in-store and market sales histories we draw up an averaged value, taking into consideration demand and condition.
You will be offered a higher estimate for in-store credit / trade!
Evaluations often take time – your patience is appreciated! If you have several hundreds of items please note that we may ask to hold your collection for a day or so for proper evaluation.
If you have any questions or concerns over our estimates, feel free to ask. Please note that we are only offering to evaluate items for our own purchasing needs.
What We’re Looking For – Everything!
One thing that sets Record Collectors Paradise apart: we are interested in ALL music and formats! That said, please note that certain genres and mediums have higher demand and value than others.
All formats are welcome: LP’s (12″ / 33rpm), singles (7″ / 45rpm), shellac singles (10″ / 78rpm), cassettes, 8-tracks, reel-to-reel tapes – literally anything that plays music!
While some types of music have more value than others, we are still interested all styles. You are welcome to bring your entire collection – we will not cherry pick “better” items and send you home with the rest!
Our staff is highly knowledgeable about the varying values of music items. We are always upfront and honest about which pieces are more valuable and which are harder for us to sell. In the end we will make you an offer on your entire collection!
Did you know that RCP also buys vintage stereo equipment? If you have gently used turntables, preamps, receivers etc. we will consider trade or purchase! Please contact us prior to bringing your equipment in. We highly recommend calling or emailing with make and model info along with ANY condition issues.
We also seek vintage music-related memorabilia such as videos (VHS, DVD, Blu-ray), concert posters, t-shirts, collectors items, etc.
What We Expect
Whether it’s music or equipment or memorabilia, our top priority is condition. While we do purchase items with reasonable wear-and-tear or damage, please remember that such things will decrease the overall value.
At the end of the day, we ask for patience and understanding. RCP deals with thousands of records every week, and it often takes time to assess it all. That said, we are glad to help in any way we can.
