    I have around 800 dvds I want to sell, this includes many box sets, tv shows and anime.

    Does anybody have any ideas on the best way to sell them? I rather not go the ebay route and I am not too fussed about getting the absolute best price I can, just a fair price really and as little hassle as possible.

    Maybe selling it as a collection would be good, but I don't know where or how.

    Any ideas welcome, thank you.

    Not much experince with DVDs but I sold a huge CD collection through Amazon. They tend to take a fair cut, and charge you VAT on the service, but they do give you postal credit on top of the price paid so that helps you out a bit. And it's quick, easy and safe. If they don't get the money, they don't instruct you to send.

    Plus it's dead easy to get a fair price. Just look up the title on their site and check out the best price for stuff in a similar condition to yours. Then just undercut by a few pence if you want rid. By doing this I also found I had few rare collectors pieces worth a fair bit I'd have otherwise let go for peanuts.

    Check it out and see what you think...

    Might be a silly answer but have you considered selling in the classified section here? You could break them down into lots or sell seperately and you wouldn't have fees to pay either.

    Thanks for your replies, I will look into the amazon option and I have started putting a list together to put in the classified section.

    Altogether I have about 950 DVDs, I want to sell about 800 (I would really like to keep them all of course) as I am looking at buying a house and I could hopefully make a bit more towards a deposit, also the places I am looking at are a bit small and 800 hundred dvds take up far too much space :( .

    Here is a link to my DVD profiler, like I said some I will not be selling but this should give you an idea until I get them all listed.

    Good idea as there's a few I wouldn't mind giving a good home too.

    It might be worth putting the ones you want to keep/sell into a different section of your online profiler (eg. Wish List)

    I'd also recommend watching some of the films earmarked for sale again. Especially the ones you've only seen once. I watched T3 again last night which I thought was pants, but enjoyed it on second viewing.

    Try work. I normally make a big list and email everyone in the company. Even the CEO buys a couple off me.

    No postage and often people will offer me swaps of films I don't own or haven't seen.
