Hello smile

DH and I are finally FED UP with our DVDs and CDs taking over and have put them all onto a hard drive so we can sell them all

What is the best place to ship them all - I'd rather not do amazon as there are hundreds and I cannot be bothered to sell them all individually

Are any of those sites like magpie better than the others?

Yes I wondered about cex or music magpie or something but I wondered if one got you more cash than he others

Good idfea, Natasha, I would also consider CEX. You might only get between 1p and 70p per item, but it's a hell of a lot easier than listing them on ebay or Amazon and being lucky to get 99p and having to post them and worrying about feedback. <bitter>

The 1p by the way is CEX's offer for a Take That CD. grin

1p! grin

I sell books on amazon but wih the limit on postage they apply I only make about £3 per book and it's just not worth it - it's a right pain

There's a cex near me so I might pop in.

Thanks both

Let us know how you get on with the Take That collection so we can compare notes. smile

I have Shania Twain to sell grin

I've used Magic Magpie in the past. You don't get much but it's easy and convenient. At least they tell you from the outset how much you'll get for each item.

I've never used CEX or Cash Converters, how does it work? Do you take stuff into the shop and they price it individually?

BoerWarKids Tue 25-Sep-12 16:56:48

I've got DVDs to sell, both CEX and CC are walking distance from my house so maybe I should take advantage!

LineRunner Tue 25-Sep-12 17:10:16

CEX I think scans the barcode of everything you take in and the set price comes up on the till. (That's how it works at Game, for used console games.) There's a cash price and a higher trade-in price.

So if you're planning to buy one of the DC's a pre-owned game or console or DS or accessory for Christmas, that's the time to take your old stuff in, for trade-in.

BoerWarKids Tue 25-Sep-12 17:41:40

Thanks, LineRunner. I need cash rather than a trade-in, but I'll give them a go.

LineRunner Tue 25-Sep-12 17:45:16

You can look up the prices in advance on the CEX website, and presumably CC and Magpie are the same, so you don't get too much of a shock!

I have used Music Magpie. My 90s indie stuff seems to get me on average about £1 an item. It was very convinient, they even post you postage labels if you havn't got a printer at home. Music is not worth that much second hand really, since it is pretty cheap to start with, and a chunk of that is royalities and tax.

Cex seem to pay better - for example I just checked Big Bang Theory series one and Cex offer £4, MM only offer £1.32!!

LineRunner Wed 26-Sep-12 20:10:44

Wow, that's a heck of a difference! I wonder why.

Thank you OP for starting this thread. I've never heard of Cex but there's one very nearby, and having checked a few things I'd like to get rid of, it'll all add up.

You're welcome racing but I still haven't got round to doing it grin

BertieBotts Sun 30-Sep-12 11:20:27

Cex you tend to get more for stuff, but not on CDs, unless they're recent ones (but even then ebay would be better)

No they don't buy VHS.

BertieBotts Sun 30-Sep-12 11:28:52

CDs will be either 1p, 10p or 30p generally unless it's a very new release or a high value box set (but most box sets even you don't get much for)

DVDs it varies, anything from 10p up to about £2 per title unless, again, they're new releases. Or disney ones hold their value more, you get a few £ each for those.
