I have 100ish Blu-rays that I'm looking to offload, preferably in a single bulk bundle.  They're all excellent condition, in cases, with many of them never even used.  Anyone have any idea of a fair price for this?  I'm thinking around $5 per Blu-ray, so $500 for the lot.  Really hard to know what's fair given most of them did cost about $20-$30 each...and some of the box sets were upwards of $80 (e.g. Harry Potter collection). 

 

Any ideas....and any interest from a GZer for an instant Blu-ray collection?

Pricing sounds good, but as for dumping lot in a single go, I think you'd be hard pushed to find a buyer.........

 

I'd be interested in seeing what you have if you do decide to sell individually / small bulk lots.

personally if I was doing a bulk buy of 100, i would expect to pay around $250.  Thats just my personal opinion.  Doing individual sales, then $5-$10 each depending on the bluray.

 

but with 4k, and streaming (I cant remember the last time I actually watched a blu-ray, heck even held a blu-ray), theyre not exactly a hot item.

 

So my 2cents, I would shove up a list of all your blurays, with prices, say

 

Blurays for $10

 

- movie a
- movie b
- movie c

 

Blurays for $5
- movie d
- movie e
- movie f

and indicate you would consider selling the lot at a fair offer.  or buy 3 get a 4th free etc.

I don't think a bulk sell is implausable.  I sold all my DVDs last year in a bulk sale.  Had about 200 that went for $600 which I was surprised about.  There was a lot of interest, so I'm confident enough at this stage I can get rid of them all at once.  Not interested in the hassle of selling separately, I don't have the time.  I'll just keep them if I can't get interest in the lot.

The biggest problem you will have is that "blu ray collecting" is not a growing market, so most of your likely "customers" probably already have a significant library.....

 

If you were determined to sell them in a single batch, the price is pretty much going to be driven by how many of the discs are unique to the purchaser..

 

If getting rid of them is you major goal then listing them separately is likely to garner more interest, but its more hassle to you and likely to leave you with discs that you probably won't be able to give away..

 

There are probably other options too.

 

I think cash convertors still buy these, ( not sure what they pay thou)- or you could donate them to a local church or community group fair...

you have a list/inventory for the collection? I mean it may or may not suit one's tastes you know.

I chucked a post on FB marketplace at $350 or make an offer. There's more in another box but it's down in the basement and I can't get to it until later.

Cash Converters still but Blu-rays (I think) - I sold my last lot there.  Might not get you the price you want but they would probably buy the lot (note, they don't but overseas disks, as I found out, they have to have the NZ classification label on them)
