WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR RECORD STORE DAY?
Record Store Day information can be found HERE
HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER REQUEST?
If a record is in print, we can get it! We have accounts with Sony, Universal and Warners as well as all the indies – Proper, Cargo, SRD, RSK, Plastichead, PIAS etc. We have access to well over 500k records. Please just message us either here on-site or through Instagram with the artist, title and format and we will send you a quote and invoice option to proceed.
HOW MUCH IS SHIPPING?
Exact shipping cost will be calculated at check-out. Double LPs count as 2, triple as 3 etc
Approximate U.K. Shipping: 1-5 LPs £4.99 / 6-10 LPs £9.99
Spend £100 + to get FREE shipping and 10% off your next order via a discount voucher. The 10% discount voucher is valid for 28 days from issue.
All orders will be sent in robust card mailer with additional card support. We will ship the record outside of the sleeve to protect it from seam splits. We WILL do this unless requested not to. If you do not wish us to do this please inform us at ordering.
Please Note: If you request the record to be shipped sealed, you are unable to return the record for seam split damage.
Currently we do not offer international shipping due to recent increases making it generally cost prohibitive, unfortunately often doubling the cost of an order.
HOW IS YOUR PRE-OWNED VINYL GRADED?
All our pre-owned vinyl graded at VG or VG+ will be cleaned on our Okki Nokki pro cleaner and sent in new replacement inner sleeve along with any original printed inner sleeve.
Near Mint (NM)
A nearly perfect record. A NM or M- record has more than likely never been played, and the vinyl will play perfectly, with no imperfections during playback. Many dealers won't give a grade higher than this implying (perhaps correctly) that no record is ever truly perfect. The record should show no obvious signs of wear. A 45 RPM or EP sleeve should have no more than the most minor defects, such as any sign of slight handling. An LP cover should have no creases, folds, seam splits, cut-out holes, or other noticeable similar defects. The same should be true of any other inserts, such as posters, lyric sleeves.
Very Good Plus (VG+)
A Very Good Plus record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Defects should be more of a cosmetic nature, not affecting the actual playback as a whole. Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are "OK". The label may have some ring wear or discolouration, but it should be barely noticeable. Spindle marks may be present. Picture sleeves and inner sleeves will have some slight wear, slightly turned-up corners, or a slight seam split. An LP cover may have slight signs of wear, and may be marred by a cut-out hole, indentation, or cut corner. In general, if not for a couple of minor things wrong with it, this would be Near Mint.
Very Good (VG)
Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as with light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound. Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue) attached. The same will be true of picture sleeves or LP covers. However, it will not have all of these problems at the same time.
