SELLING YOUR COLLECTION
Our specialist Music & Entertainment department is always looking for quality items for our regular vinyl record and music entertainment memorabilia auctions. Items accepted range from rare vinyl records (LPs, 7" singles, 12" singles, acetates, demos etc), collectable vinyl records, cd's and tapes through to posters, autographs, signed items, tickets, film scripts, clothing, props, lyrics/music scores, instruments and other music/entertainment memorabilia. The more interesting and out of the ordinary the better!

If you're looking to sell your entire vinyl record or memorabilia collection we can help you to achieve the best possible price in our specialist music and entertainment auction. We love record collections and can make house calls for large collections, including estate sales, shop closure stock and radio station stock. We're interested in most kinds of music but the main emphasis is on rock & pop, indie, soul, dance, jazz, punk, psych, soul, northern soul, folk, blues and reggae.

With our international database of dealers and collectors, we can help you to achieve the best price for your record collection and memorabilia, so if you want to sell your old records or music memorabilia, please get in touch. Vinyl & music/entertainment memorabilia relating to The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd are selling well and achieving excellent sale prices in the current market. Our previous auctions have achieved record breaking prices for vinyl and music memorabilia from all of these artists.

In addition to the more obvious popular artists, vinyl from the weird and wonderful and less well known groups and artists from the 60's and 70's are also very much in demand. Any vinyl on the likes of the Vertigo Swirl label is a guaranteed good seller! If the vinyl and memorabilia that you have is in excellent condition then we are confident that the prices achieved will exceed expectations!

If you have a vinyl or memorabilia collection to sell, we always recommend auction as the best way to realise the highest sale prices. Your collection will be sorted and broken down into appropriate lots in order to maximise your return. The collection will then be catalogued, photographed and marketed to dealers and collectors worldwide. With multiple buyers all bidding against each other you will without a doubt achieve the maximum possible price. If however, you prefer to sell your collection outright, we can also make a fair and competitive offer for your collection. We'd love to talk to you about your collection, your buying and selling needs, and how Omega Auctions can work for you. Call or email us today if you would like us to help you in determining the best options for your collection.
