UK Vinyl Vault are one of the UK’s premier and most trusted buyers and sellers of vinyl records and music memorabilia.

As well as a website shop, they exhibit and sell at record fairs around the world - including London Olympia - and the biggest record fair in the world at Utrecht in the Netherlands. Online, as a ‘Power Seller’ and eBay ‘Premium Service’ shop with thousands of feedback, they have never had a single neutral or negative comment.

Based in East Sussex and run by Chris they are out and about every week, viewing and buying record collections, concert programmes, posters and, in fact, anything music related.

For the company, it’s mostly about trust. As Chris says: “There are hundreds of people now advertising for records but very few that will actually be honest about valuing a record collection. My knowledge of all types of records and genres is extensive and we pride ourselves on a professional and friendly service”.

Only last week the company unearthed a very valuable American Blues 78rpm disc that made the owner’s day. Chris adds: “Rare records are rare for a reason – they’re few and far between”.

Last month Chris unearthed a rare Rolling Stones Acetate (metal based master disc). The item was sold to a Japanese collectorLast month Chris unearthed a rare Rolling Stones Acetate (metal based master disc). The item was sold to a Japanese collector

UK Vinyl Vault are looking for all types of genres, including classic and progressive rock, 60’s beat and pop, 50’s rock & roll, soul, jazz, folk and classical, right through to punk, indie and reggae. The Company also specialises in purchasing memorabilia: posters, signed items, programmes, ticket stubs, fan club merchandise, etc.

“The ‘bread and butter’ of our business is the purchase of small private collections of records, but we welcome larger ones, and regularly buy extensive collections that can run into thousands of items. We will come to you to view collections at your convenience”.

UK Vinyl Vault are based in Sussex, but can travel further afield for the right kind of collection.
