When you submit your records, vinyl and music memorabilia for auction, this is your opportunity to get people interested in your music related items and encourage them to bid. Potential buyers are more likely to bid on lots with a good description, all relevant information displayed clearly and, of course, beautiful photos. By following these 3 steps when submitting your records, vinyl and music memorabilia for auction, you can increase your chances of earning higher revenues on your lots at auction.
To help encourage potential buyers to bid on your lot, you should include a detailed description of your object(s).
If you are using our website to upload your lots, tips will appear to give you guidance about what information we need to know about your lot. The fields that you fill in help to present the information in a way that’s easy for the buyer to read.
The required information includes:
- item type
- music genre
- name artist/band
- title of the album
- release year and release country
- label number/barcode
- media source
- certification/direct proof for signed memorabilia
- if offering a multi-item lot, mention the number of items in the lot
- there should be a strong cohesion amongst the items in the lot (artist, band or theme)
Please submit text in English only
Including strong photographs is key to catching buyers’ eyes, ensuring they bid on your lot.
Of course, buying online means potential bidders do not get a chance to see your lot in person, therefore detailed and high quality photographs are very important.
To allow our experts, as well as our bidders, to get the right impression of an item, we require:
- photos of the front sleeves of all albums
- a close-up of label/barcode (1 per album)
- a photo of the back sleeve (if sealed)
- close-ups of the signatures
- that all photos are self taken (not taken from the internet)
- Photograph your item in front of a plain and neutral background, preferably a white wall.
- Only show the item(s) you want to put up for auction and avoid any bare hands or self-portraits.
- Always include photos of the front sleeve and if sealed, also of the back sleeve.
For memorabilia items, include photos of front, back, bottom, top, sides and inside where applicable.
- If you offer several items, please photograph all items together and each item individually.
- Provide specific sharp detail photos of the label/barcode of the record, a signature or monogram, a logo, title or inscription(s), any decorative details and (where relevant) a photo of the inside.
- Accurately show the condition of the item(s) giving close-up photos that clearly show any signs of wear and tear or (minor) damage as well as repaired or restored parts.
Now that you know exactly what you need in order to create a fantastic lot, it’s time to start selling your records, vinyl and music memorabilia. Start submitting your special objects for auction.
We look forward to receiving your lots soon - our experts can’t wait to see what you have to offer!
