What are the condition requirements for records accepted by the store?

We look for vinyl LPs and 45s that are in conditions ranging from Good to Mint. Original cover art is required, and we cannot accept records with deep scratches, mold, or without their original covers. The better the condition, the higher the payment we offer.

How does the buying process work?

We are open to purchasing your records anytime during business hours. Every employee is trained to evaluate your items carefully to ensure quality and playability. If you bring in a large collection, we might ask you to leave it overnight for a thorough assessment. For very large collections, we also offer house calls—please email us to arrange a time.

Do you have any advice for sellers looking to trade in records?

Focus on bringing records in genres we desire. Organize your records in boxes for easy browsing and to facilitate our assessment process. If you have CDs and DVDs, please contact us beforehand to confirm if we are currently interested.
