Sell Your Records

Whether you’ve inherited a collection that you don’t want, you’re emigrating, or you’re clearing room in your house, Mr Vinyl is always buying records and we would love to see your collection.

You are welcome to bring your collection to our shop in Johannesburg for appraisal (just phone ahead to make sure that a buyer is on duty).  For specialist or large collections, we’ll come out to you.

If you are not located in Johannesburg, please still contact us, as we work with shipping partners (at our expense) to make offers on these.

We pay fair and high prices for record collections and we believe in honesty and integrity in all of our business dealings.

We know that not all collections are sold in happy circumstances and we’re especially sensitive in our handling of deceased estates and divorce settlements.  We’re people too.

We buy:

Vinyl Records in good condition – Most genres from the late 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

Genres We Buy – Pop, Rock, Indie, Metal, Punk, Alternative, Jazz, Blues, Soul, Funk, Hip-Hop, Rap, RnB and everything in-between.

Genres We Buy In Certain Circumstances – Classical (We are now buying specialist classical collections in excellent condition only).  Dance music (special attention is given to the condition of dance music, as these are sometimes very scratched from DJing, and sometimes the titles are too dated or ‘of the time’ and not suitable for re-sale)

We don’t buy:

Scratched and damaged records

Classical music that isn’t in perfect condition

Dance Music that isn’t in perfect condition

Big Band / Swing Music

Old Musicals


Readers Digest Boxsets

78s and shellac records



Turntables, Amplifiers, Speakers and HiFi equipment – unfortunately, we no longer buy these.
