Cash For Hi-Fi
What equipment do we buy?
If you've spent more than £1000 in total on your hi-fi system, chances are you have something we may be interested in. We are interested in high end equipment from brands like the ones listed below*. We will also consider high end vintage equipment from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s. We are ONLY interested in hi-fi separates and are can NOT consider mini systems, midi systems, ghetto blasters, stacker systems or in wall speakers.
For a cash purchase quote, please e-mail a list of the equipment, photos and confirmation of whether you want cash or wish to part exchange for something you've seen on our website. Click here to e-mail.
For part exchange against new equipment, click here for details.
Why sell to Audio Affair?
High end hi-fi equipment can take time to sell. Rather than wait weeks or even months for your equipment to sell (even at a keen price) on eBay or in the classifieds, and to avoid the risk of it selling at a very low price if advertised on auction, sell it to us now for cash. We can arrange nationwide collection and pay BACS on receipt of the equipment, or bring it to us during opening hours for bank transfer to be made while you wait (please call us to arrange first!)
How much do we offer?
Much like selling your car for cash to a car dealer, we'll offer what we feel is a fair market rate for your equipment considering that we have to pay VAT on the sale price, cover the transaction costs of the sale, storage for the equipment (especially considering it may take us weeks to sell), the bank account interest foregone and the fact we put a 30 day warranty on every used item we sell, so we need to factor in the possible repair costs should the item go faulty or get damaged in transit going to the new owner.
Sale or return?
If you hope to achieve a higher price than what we can offer for cash now, we can advertise and sell your equipment on a sale or return basis. There are massive advantages in selling your equipment this way and some buyers feel more comfortable in buying from an established business rather than a private individual and being able to get a 30 day warranty on the equipment helps (again, much like buying a used car from a dealership).
In addition, as we aren't tying up working capital in the equipment, you may realise a higher price for your equipment after our fees, but please bear in mind it may still take weeks or months to sell, so you may prefer to sell your equipment for cash now. Having said that, we may have someone on our database of clients interested in your equipment. e-mail us with a list of equipment (and ideally photos) with an idea of how much you expect to receive on sale or return and we'll see what we can do!
