Thread: Old 45 records & more!

  1. #41
    That sounds good, even if you just wrap the whole stack carefully in several layers of paper
    they should be fine (as long if they can't move inside the parcel). Most lots I got over the
    years were packed like that. Packing each record might take some time? I know that shipping
    from the UK can become expensive, I don't know if it's depending on weight, size or both.

    I've got those 45 in the corner of my Dining room Roland and have dug out some 1980s Rockabilly stuff too (Rocky Sharpe and the Replays, the Star Gazers and others).

    I'll have to get the postage checked soon, my wife'll be hassling me to clear them out soon if not too.

    I'm just up to my eyes in it at work at the moment.

    What with a teething 7 month old (and a 5 year old Dr Who fan son pulling on my trouser leg constantly).... I've little spare time at the moment, I'll sort out those and some more 45s for you soon mate.



    Have you any use for shop bought recorded Tapes or old 75s I might not need (if I have any?).

    Cheers.
    Try PARCELS2GO.....they are an agent for most of the delivery services.

    Ebay have a similar company called PARCEL MONKEY but they are slightly more expensive.

    Surface mail will be your best bet, if you can do it. Parcelforce/Royal Mail don't do surface mail to Europe anymore.

    I buy car parts from Germany and the costs aren't always a killer -- you might be surprised.

    Paper is heavy. Bubble wrap or polystyrene sheet would be better, if you have any spare and will save you wrapping individually. Just bundle them and pack tight round the outsides - they should be fine.

    I wish international shipping was more reasonable. Obviously car parts from the US is a big issue for a lot of us.

    I find lots of 1/18 scale car models available in Australia, but the shipping is a killer. Can you Aussie guys tell us the cheapest way to ship from your direction???

    Thanks for the link. It looks like surface/sea mail is quite affordable and I don't mind the wait. I only buy stuff for myself off ebay so the rest of the family can put them away for birthday or xmas. Is auspost your equivalent of our Royal Mail, or is it a commercial company?

    Use Parcel Force or one of the Private ones, They will be a hell of a lot cheaper than the Post Office Lee..

    Over the years I managed to build myself a nice little collection of some
    50s / 60s Rock 'n' Roll, Doo-Wop, R&B and some Soul 45s but good ones
    are really hard to find here in Germany. I bought the records shown below
    from eBay because they were listed as US pressings from the 50s to 70s
    but unfortunately most of them are country music. I wish I'd find more nice
    Rock 'n' Roll stuff for my jukeboxes...and of course to use on my radio show!

    Being in an agricultural area here, most of the '50's 45 rpm records I find are country/western also. I presume if I went yard sale-ing in Sacramento or San Francisco, there would be more doo-wop and rock records to be found.

    Okay guys.

    I need to raise some cash.

    I've been collecting records over the years to fill my next Jukebox but need to sell them prematurely.

    These records are in excellent condition, many are very rare, most are excellent tunes and some quite expensive (one I have in front of me set me back about $20 including postage from the US).

    I want to get as much as possible for them to raise money to rebuild Christine's engine.

    I'll list them here over the next few days in installments as it takes a while to write them all down.
    Everything's good!

    Check out post 175 on this link to here some of the highlighted ones.

    In some cases you tube actually shows the cover of the record I'm selling.
