When the time comes for you to find a new home for your record & CD collection, Rat is where you need to be. But don't just take our word for it; read what our previous customers say.

Hi Tom, thanks again for coming to buy the records. I thought you were quick in responding to my email, punctual and professional. And of course you gave me more than I expected for my records.

Great communication, very responsive, a rapid transaction as well as a fair price. This is a good place to do business with. Thoroughly recommended!

Hi Tom,
Thank you as well. It was a painless and (to me) interesting process to have someone else going through my records and offering a reasonable deal at the end of it all. I'm very happy with the outcome, as is Mrs Hugh who now has 3 extra shelves on which to stash maths teaching materials! I hope you manage to get shot of the records yourself. In summary, painless and strangely enjoyable process, watching 50-odd years of accumulated cultural history being dismantled, and getting a useful (and I think, fair) sum of money as a result.

I was really happy with the record buying service from Rat Records. Tom was really friendly, helpful and most importantly fair in his appraisal of the collection. I'll definitely be contacting them again in the future if I need to sell anything.

An honest and open appraisal of my collection from the start with no tactics or hidden agenda. Tom clearly has solid knowledge of the vinyl market and his customer base. Good communication through out the process and an approachable manner made the whole experience straight forward and on the day of collection (thanks to all of the above) we reached a deal which was mutually agreeable. I was very happy with the whole process.

It was a very enjoyable experience dealing with Tom in the selling of my record collection. Living out in Surrey and being somewhat frustrated by the lack of responses from local dealer I contacted Tom via his website link. 
We fixed a time to review the collection. He arrived on time, worked quickly and efficiently and gave me what I felt was an honest and fair price for my collection. 
I would highly recommend Tom if your thinking of selling part or all your collection. The fact that you know your records will be played and enjoyed again should also credited to Tom. 
I'm glad that the records will go to good homes. Dealing with you was a pleasure. You were reliable, honest and above all very fair.

I needed to sell my late father’s Jazz collection which consisted of a large number of CDs and Vinyl. I spoke to Tom and he was very helpful giving a price which I was happy with. The whole process was dealt with very quickly. I would definitely recommend Rat Records if you have a large collection to sell.
