I am a private collector downsizing an extensive music collection which has been more than 25 years in the making, catering to just about every taste and genre. I have hundreds of items listed for sale with new titles being added daily. I offer combined shipping on all items, so be sure to look at my other listings. Add me to your favourite sellers and check back once in a while – you never know what you might find!
All vinyl is visually graded under a 100 watt halogen light. Obvious flaws will be noted in the listing. Unless the item is brand new or sealed the highest grade I’ll ever use for a record is NEAR MINT. I do not sell badly scratched, warped, cracked or otherwise flawed records.
NEAR MINT: Record and cover should appear like new.
NM-/VG++: A few visible flaws may be present but should not affect play quality. Cover may show minor shelf wear
VG+: Vinyl may have light marks which may cause minor audible defects such as low level background noise, soft crackle or occasional pops or ticks which do not overwhelm the music. Cover may show wear or minor damage to faces, seams, or corners.
VG: The record has obviously been played often but is still in playable condition - there may be obvious signs of wear or scratches which may cause surface noise or occasional pop or ticks. This grade is usually reserved for rare or collectible records which are worth having in any condition.
Due to work commitments I don't specialise in fast shipping. I try to dispatch orders within 3-4 days of payment; however this is not always possible. If you do need something delivered urgently please contact me first and I'll see what I can do. Multiple purchases including double albums and boxed sets will be charged according to weight. If you are purchasing multiple items please wait for my invoice before completing checkout.
Where possible records will be removed from their jackets , placed inside a poly sleeve and packed in a sturdy record mailer with cardboard reinforecement. I have found this method to be very reliable. Check my feedback for comments. For larger orders I sometimes have to improvise and make use of recycled materials, but your records will be treated with the same respect and care.
Prompt payment is always appreciated, however if you need extra time to make payment that is ok - just let me know. I prefer payment by direct deposit where possible. Banking details will be provided in the checkout. I also accept PayPal payments and money orders. I do not accept personal cheques, nor bank cheques drawn on foreign banks. Local pickup is available for most items:
**Please note that insurance is the buyer’s responsibility. I pack safely but I cannot be responsible for items lost or damaged in the mail. International and domestic registered mail including insurance up to $100 is available at the buyer’s option, and recommended for orders over $50.
Due to the high cost of shipping returns are not always a viable option for LPs. I do my best to provide accurate descriptions, but if you have received an item in error, or you feel the item is significantly not as described, please contact me so we can sort it out.
Thanks for looking!
