Sell your Vinyl Records, CDs and DVDs Online


The below questionnaire to sell records will provide us with the detailed information we need to give you a preliminary evaluation of your collection. Please Note: while many LPs are of great interest to us, the vast majority of those in today's market have little to no monetary value. The fastest and easiest way of determining the general value of your collection is to call us at 609-924-3472.

If you have already compiled a list of your collection or an appraiser has recommended that you do so, we welcome you to complete the form below or email us at info@prex.com.

To get top-prices when you sell Records to us, the vinyl and covers must be in excellent shape; there must be no scratches, scuffs, mildew, mold, water damage, excessive dirt, or warping. Please inspect your Records carefully and note any damage. We are very interested in modern jazz, bebop, older rock, pre-'75 R&B, punk, blues, metal, and 20th century records. More info can be found on sell Records - sell CDssell DVDs. For general selling information, please visit selling Records, CDs & DVDs info.

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.

We respect your privacy. We will not share any of the information you provide us with a third party.  If you have any questions or concerns about our use of this information, please contact us at info@prex.com
