Here's what I'll need to know:
Nice to put something back into the rat! Having been a customer there for quite some years while in london, I was pleased to receive the same quality of service, knowledge and understanding from a record collection selling perspective. The chap picking up the records was superb - even my mum said he was a nice man.
Hope you managed to sell some of the records on Saturday - and that they went to a good home! It was very nice to meet you and I found the whole process very easy and stress free. It was great to be able to send you a list of the Indie records and to quickly get back individual prices for each record you wanted to buy . It was also a big bonus to have the records collected - including those you didn't want! If I hear of anyone wanting to sell their collection I shall definitely pass on your details.
Dear Tom. Thank you for coming all the way down here, it really made things so much easier for me! Hmm..comments..:I chose Rat Records as after the first communication I had with you I felt informed and confident that you knew what you were talking about and would offer me a fair price. It helped to have the process explained to me, knowing nothing about classic rock records at all, and the fact that you could come to me really helped us. I was pleased with the price I received for the record collection and generally felt very comfortable and confident in the sale. I would recommend Rat Records to anyone that has some unwanted vinyl, or even looking for somewhere to purchase them, as the service was excellent.
Contacted Rat Records via the Internet to gauge if there was any interest in them purchasing my vinyl record collection. Tom contacted me and gave me some very helpful information regarding the value of second hand records that I was trying to sell and also as to the various ways that I could go about selling my classic rock record collection. In the end we arranged a meeting which resulted in me selling around half of my LP collection to Rat Records for a fair and reasonable price. Throughout the process Tom proved himself to be both knowledgeable and fair in his dealings.

Nice guy to do business with. He'll give you a very honest valuation of your second hand CD collection, then come round and collect waving a fistful of cash. Struck me as a very genuine person, to the point where I have passed his details onto others.
I personally found you very experienced, knowledgeable, and helpful. I had tried to sell my second hand soul record collection on many occasions and I found yourself the most honest record dealer. I would definitely trade with yourself again and would highly recommend Rat Records.

Tom. Just a quick note to say that I never expected to enjoy selling my record collection, but you made the process a remarkably upbeat one. It was a pleasure to meet you, and I feel that the punk and indie records couldn't have gone to a better place. Many thanks for a very interesting afternoon, and for a fair price for buying my record collection.
Doubtless i'll be in the shop in a few weeks trying to buy some of it back.
I'd definitely recommend selling to Tom at Rat Records. We got a prompt response to our initial enquiry, and Tom took the time to explain his pricing system and the bigger context for selling second hand vinyl records. He was fair and professional when he came to buy our record and cd collections; we were very happy with the price offered and also glad that he was able to take non-resale items off our hands. All in all, a very good experience.
Hi Tom. Just to say thank you for coming over, viewing my vintage vinyl records and purchasing a substantial portion.
As you say in your website, the whole exercise was painless. It was also exceedingly professional and I am very happy at the prices you offered. It was very interesting to see the differential rates for buying blues and jazz records based on your assessment of their popularity. It is a very fair method for pricing an old record collection. Its was a pleasure dealing with you and all the very best to you and your company.
Hi Tom. Great stuff! Im really pleased your happy with the records. I started collecting reggae records 19 years ago and thought i'd never sell them, but things change! Im glad others will enjoy them though! Likewise been great doing business with yourself never thought i'd sell my records that quickly, thanks again. I will not hesitate to recommend you to others to buy records.
Dear Tom, It was a pleasure to meet you and a pleasure to do business with you. I am glad that your customers are happy! I thoroughly enjoyed the process of selling my new wave and alternative record collection to you and felt that you were very honest and honourable, as well as knowledgeable and charming. Thank you for helping me to make some difficult decisions - and for helping me let go of the past and move into the future. Of all the record dealers I contacted, I felt you were the most fair and honest.
