Dealing with Tom has been very easy. After we emailed each other, Tom came over to review the vinyl I had. He was really personable and we chatted about my collection. He gave me a good price and I was really happy with the whole process even though I mourn needing to let the collection go.

Steve, Eltham

We’d forgotten we still had our vinyl collection and hadn’t thought about it for years. Time to sell it. It’s possible to sell some of them individually if you have the time and don’t mind the hassle, but you’ll probably still be left with a lot that don’t sell. So we contacted Tom. He got back quickly, came to Brighton to look them over, offered a price we were happy with, took time to explain his rationale, was friendly and professional, and took the whole collection away. We were really happy with the service.

Andy, Brighton

I am pleased that you bought my small vinyl collection. I appreciated your prompt communication, honest assessment of the records, explanation of their worth and all in a business like manner.

I am happy if my feedback helps but, as far as I am concerned, there weren't any negatives about the transaction.

Barbara, S London

Tom clearly knows his stuff and struck me as an honest and professional buyer. The communication was clear and concise throughout, and the fact he was able to come and collect from me was an added bonus. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their collection.

Giles, SW London

Tom responded promptly to my original enquiry and was both friendly and helpful throughout the traumatic process of parting ways with over 30 year’s worth of CDs!!!

Robin, Nantwich

Hi Tom,

It was a pleasure doing business with you! I felt that both your assessment of my collection and the price that you offered were fair and understandable. Thanks.

Suze, Clapham

Tom was polite, friendly and professional during our conversations and made the selling process easy. A pleasure to deal with.

John, Luton

All round excellent service from Tom, professional, friendly, informative and prompt payment. No fuss at all, I would definitely recommend Rat Records if you are thinking of selling your records.

Colin, Essex

I wanted to sell a very large collection of CD and some Vinyl and contacted Tom, who I found to be friendly and Helpful.
I was impressed with how straightforward the process was. I had Vinyl, CD Box sets and around 4500 CD's so a lot to deal with.
I was concerned about the difficulties of dealing with the quantity and saddened by having to let my collection go. I found Tom efficient and helpful and it was a smooth and trouble free experience.
I'm very happy to recommend Tom and see that other reviews, suggest a similarly good experience.

Mike, Bristol

Thanks Tom it was a pleasure to sell you my vinyl and cds. Excellent service and a good price the plus is you come to the customer. Highly recommended, you can put this as a review with my name!

Simon, Bromley

Tom from Rat Records offers a friendly, helpful, efficient service.  Home collection made things easy and totally trust my vinyl will go to an appreciative new home.

Karen, SW London

Recently I needed to rehome a bunch of old vinyl albums. I found Tom at online.

The website gave clear instructions, I swapped a couple of emails and three days after, Tom arrived when he said he would, checked through the albums swiftly and professionally checking for any damage to sleeves and albums; fifteen minutes later he left and I had cash in my back pocket and more space in my living room.  If you are de-cluttering or downsizing or as in my case clearing out the old family home, this is a good polite reliable service. Thanks Tom.

Peter, SW18

Hi Tom

It was really nice meeting you yesterday. I am generally very happy with the experience of selling my records to you and pleased with the money I received. You were very good and responsive in your email communications and your explanations before the buy were clear and comprehensive. I feel you were fair in your assessments and prices. Thanks once again for coming and buying my records and I hope people enjoy them.

Alison, Lambeth

I approached Tom when I needed to sell some records. I had read some of the testimonials from others who had written positively about their experience in dealing with him. My experience was every bit as positive: Tom responded quickly, gave me individual prices on each record so that I could see how he arrived at his valuation, and came to my house to collect them. Although I was sad to see my records go, the whole transaction was as positive as it could be, and I would absolutely recommend Tom to anyone else who is reluctantly letting go of all or part of their collection

David, Chelmsford

I’d contacted Tom regarding some records I wanted to sell due to a house move. He replied quickly, giving me advice regarding how he would assess the condition and therefore the value of the records. We arranged for him to collect next time he was in the area. Unfortunately lockdowns and snow meant that this was some time later!

When Tom did collect the records he was very honest about the condition of the collection and I was happy to accept his figure. He took the whole collection, even though some would have very little value. Tom certainly knew his stuff and I would certainly recommend him to anyone wishing to dispose of their vinyl collection.

Gill, Cheshire

The whole process of selling my records was pretty easy (despite the pandemic interruption) and I think we both got a fair deal out of it. Thanks for explaining the realities of the used records trade to me and I hope that you will have plenty of happy customers on Saturday morning and indeed beyond.
