Description

Buying and Selling old VHS Video Tapes is a very profitable pastime…My evidence confirms that VHS Videos are Still Golden in 2016/2017 and beyond.  And yet, consider for a moment, when did you last see piles of old VHS video tapes available for sale? …Not recently I’ll bet. 

Up until about 2013 videos could be found everywhere: In charity shops, at car boot sales, jumble sales and village fetes.  They were everywhere; you literally couldn’t give them away. 

How times have changed, for these distinct black boxes, surrounded by their colourful sleeves and sturdy plastic cases, are disappearing from our British landscape fast. The truth is that they are becoming a rarity!

Most charity shops (but not all) stopped accepting old videos as donations a couple of years ago, leaving many people no alternative but to haul their once beloved collection of tapes to the council tip… I can hardly bear to think about it.  If only people knew the value of some of the rarer tapes which they are freely committing to landfill, they would be horrified.

I have been writing about the undiscovered profit potential of old video tapes for many years now, and I guess I’m somewhat passionate about the subject, and for good reason.  Every year I literally sell thousands of pounds worth of VHS video tapes, and I’ll be honest it’s one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways I know of to make money.

This blueprint is an update for buying and selling video tapes in 2012 - 2017 and beyond.

"The course is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone!"  Jane K.
