Vinyl Buying and Rescue Program

HiFi BUYS AND RESCUES USED & VINTAGE VINYL RECORDS.

We are currently buying used records - however, our in-store operations are limited. You can bring them in unannounced on Mondays & Wednesdays from noon-8pm. We recommend that you call ahead and make an appointment before bringing your collection any other day. You can also email us to help expedite the process. 

We pay well for clean collections and prefer some genres over others. Read our buying guide below for more details. Note: Due to limited capacity and the need for safe social distancing, we may give you a quick and fair offer for your records.

DO YOU HAVE A LARGE COLLECTION OF 200+ RECORDS?
