Large CD Collection For Sale

Postby RichardLowe » Wed May 22, 2019 11:34 am

My brother-in-law died two years ago leaving behind a large and varied CD collection. Now that my sister is moving house she tasked me with either taking them away as my own, or selling them on. I'll keep the ones that match my tastes, but he had such a wide and varied taste that there are still hundreds left. I'm aware of apps like Music Magpie and Ziffit that I can bar code scan each CD and simply sell them at a valuation price. However, is there a better way? There are hundreds of them, so selling individually would be a huge task. I'd rather go to as few sources as possible to avoid the next year of my life being dedicated to selling CD's!

I wish you luck - I think you'll be dissappointed at how much you're offered, probably pennies per CD..

Yep, sadly they're pretty worthless. Music Magpie or charity shop I'm afraid.

Yes, someone on another forum I am on has just given away 1600 CD's as a job lot!

Our local charity shop sells them for 20p each.

Thank you for confirming what I thought. Most of the CD's I test scanned on Music Magpie are in the 25p area, but some are obviously rare as they're being offered £1.50+.

If they’re not all classical or jazz, why not ask Kipper @ Moorgate whether he might be interested? Moorgate have recently opened a new and used record store in their basement.
