Thinking of decluttering. My local secondhand shop offer about 10p an album there is so little demand!
You won't get much more than 10-15p each though.
It is really more of a waste disposal service.
What with Amazon Marketplace.
Interestingly looked at Phoenix nights dvd on Amazon, its really expensive.
Always been easy to obtain.
Charity shops are full of landfill indie and pop.
Anything that is a bit niche is sometimes worth putting on Ebay/Marketplace.
but anyone done this and regretted it afterwards? I have loads of CDs that I never listen to and can't part with for some reason.
If I had kids who were interested in music, which CDs would I want them to stumble across one day while browsing my collection? (I remember finding stuff like the Smiths and Echo & the Bunnymen in my dad's CDs as a teenager). Those are the ones I kept.
Use the barcode scanning app, and if it values anything at more than £1/£2, look it up on eBay, Discogs or Amazon. I sold a couple of hundred a few years ago, but a handful of hard to find rap CDs made me more cash than all of the other CDs combined.
Would definitely have got more cash for listing them individually somewhere but fuck that. Ended up pulling in about £300 forthe lot.
If you get offered £3+ then it probably means it is worth a bit so put them aside and shift them on Ebay if you can be bothered.
Ended up using them and webuydvds.co.uk, checking the prices offered on both sites. Takes a bit of time, but ended up making about another £20 more than I would've otherwise. Some of the differences are pretty big. Some cds on MM were offered at 30p, which WBDVDS would offer £2.50 for and vice versa. Ended up getting about £100 or so from about 150 cds and dvds.
