Buying and Selling Motown CDs, Motown Records and DVDs

We buy and sell Motown CDs, records and DVDs, as well as more movies and music. Founded in 1980, Princeton Record Exchange is a large independent movie and music store located in historic, downtown Princeton, New Jersey, about one hour from New York City and Philadelphia, easily accessible by car, train and bus. Princeton Record Exchange buys thousands of music and movie collections. We are always looking to expand our large selection of Motown music and other types of DVDs, CDs, LPs, and games.

Browse through over 60,000 CDs, 60,000 LPs and 10,000 DVDs, including many Motown music CDs, DVDs and Records, at our New Jersey store. We do not currently list our inventory or sell online because our selection changes daily.

How to sell your Motown music!

We are always trying to add to our inventory of used CDs, LPs, and DVDs. We are happy to offer you a free appraisal for your merchandise.

We buy online and in our Princeton, NJ store.

Listed below are some of the Motown artists and labels we are looking for.

As with everything we buy, there are three ways to get an appraisal for your merchandise:

  1. Call us at 609-924-3472 to discuss your collection with an appraiser, or
  2. Bring your collection to our Princeton, NJ store, or
  3. Describe your collection online at our Sell Your CDs, Sell Your Records, or Sell Your DVDs questionnaire pages.

For large collections we recommend that you give us a call before listing all your items or visiting us-we might be able to save you a lot of time!

Selling your Motown CDs

When you Sell CDs to us, we pay up to $3 for strong selling full-length CDs in excellent condition (more for certain rarities). However, there are many titles that we may only offer 10 cents to 50 cents for; due to oversupply, lesser demand and/or poorer condition quality. There are some titles that we cannot use at all. Prices are subject to change over time. There are some titles that we are not able to buy at all.

To get top-dollar, the CDs must be in excellent shape; no scratches on the discs, cracks in the cases, or rips in the liner notes.

Selling your Motown Records

We typically pay up to $1.00 or more for many Motown LPs. However, we are always looking for sought-after titles, and there are some rarities that we pay much more for. On the other hand, there are many LPs that we can not use at all because they are scratched, weak-sellers, or we have too many of them. We base our offer on what we expect to resell the item for and its condition. LPs that are scratched, scuffed, or moldy will get only a fraction of our top prices.

There are too many details relating to the LP market to list on this page. For more specific info, please see our selling LPs info page, or call us at 609-924-3472 to discuss your collection.

While we buy many CD and DVD collections through the mail, most LP collections that we buy come from customers that live within 2-3 hours from Princeton, NJ. You are welcome to fill out our sell records questionnaire or call us to discuss your collection, but please be aware that most records do not have a high enough value to make shipping worth while. It is generally best to bring them to our Princeton, NJ store, but we do recommend that you speak with one of our appraisers first, or see LP genres of interest to us and LPs we have little interest in to make sure we don't waste your time.

Selling your Motown DVDs 

We pay up to $3 per disc for many full-length Motown DVDs-less for DVD singles. As with CDs, when selling DVDs, the discs, liner notes and cases must be in excellent condition to get full price.
