Please phone 07956194599 to place your order and make the payment with VISA or MASTER-CARD


I am often asked, I want to sell my vinyl records, how do I sell records online, who buys vinyl LP's or records?
I do! And if you want to know where to sell your old vinyl records, please phone Better On Vinyl and ask for Chris,07956 194599 and tell me what albums you have to sell.

Another frequently asked question is, I would like to sell my records,
how much are my old records really worth? I will always give you a valuation over the phone but much better if I can see the records in person. The condition of both the vinyl and sleeve plus any inserts, poster etc are so important to the overall value of the record. The pressing, is it 1st, 2nd or a later pressing, this will make a huge difference on the value.
Who buys record collections and CD's?
I do!

So if you are looking to sell your much loved or pre loved vinyl please email or phone Better on Vinyl and speak to Chris. I will always answer the call or phone back as soon as I can if you leave a message.

Dear Chris,
THE ROLLING STONES, black and blue.
THE ROLLING STONES, beggars banquet.
THE ROLLING STONES get yer ya yas out.
You’ve surpassed yourself. All three records are immaculate, as far as I can hear, and it’s wonderful to own a first pressing of Beggar’s Banquet. There’s simply no comparison between the horrid digital remasters and the original vinyl.
I don’t know how you do it, but please keep doing it!
All best wishes,
Will June 2015

Better On vinyl response: Really sorry the record jumps, the record looked new and unmarked, that's the nature of vinyl sometimes! And why I offer a full refund including your return postage. Next time (you probably won't be buying from me again!) if there is anything wrong with the service or the records I sell please let me know so I can put it right.
