For smaller collections, you can walk in during our buying hours. For larger collections, we recommend scheduling an appointment to ensure we can dedicate enough time to assess your vinyl properly.

Please bring any original sleeves, covers, and inserts that accompany your records. These components can significantly increase their value.

We assess records based on several factors, including condition, market demand, artist, rarity, and pressing. Our evaluations are grounded in current industry standards and our extensive experience.

We do buy records that have minor wear and tear, but significantly damaged items (deep scratches, warps, or mold) are less likely to be purchased. We recommend bringing them in so we can assess their condition firsthand.

The duration can vary depending on the size of your collection and our current in-store traffic. Small collections can often be assessed on the spot, while larger collections may take longer. We strive to complete evaluations efficiently and respect your time.

Yes, you can choose between cash and store credit. Store credit often provides a higher value than cash, which is ideal if you’re looking to refresh your collection.

Sold records are cleaned, graded, and priced before being added to our collection for sale. We aim to give your vinyl a new home with someone who will appreciate it as much as you did.

We welcome collections of all sizes, from a single record to thousands. If you have a particularly large collection, we recommend contacting us in advance to discuss the best way to proceed.
