What Should You Do With You Old Films?

There's nothing quite as nice as curling up on the sofa and watching your favorite film. If, like many people, you consider yourself to be a film fanatic, it's likely that you have built up quite a large collection of DVDs and Blu-Rays over the years. However, most of us, if we're being honest, only re-watch a small percentage of the films that we have in our collection. The others are usually left on our shelves, collecting dust. Moreover, as we get older, our taste in films tends to change. You might, for example, have adored action-packed blockbusters a few years ago, but now prefer foreign or indie productions.

If this is the case for you, it might be time to do a clear out of your Blu-Rays and DVDs and decide what you should do with them. If you have a number of films that are in good condition, but which you know you are unlikely to ever watch again, you may want to sell them. This way, you can make a little extra cash and declutter your house. On top of this, your old DVDs will end up going to a good home and may end up becoming someone else favorite films.

Auction Sites

The first option, if you want to try selling films online, is to use an auction site. On this type of site, you can list your item at either a fixed price or a starting price. They're relatively easy to use and you should be able to make a sale quite quickly. However, do bear in mind that you will probably incur seller's fees and so if you're selling your DVDs and Blu-Rays for a relatively small amount of money, it may not be worth your while. In addition, if you want to draw attention to your listing, you will have to spend some time taking clear photos of your items and writing up an accurate description for each one. This can be time consuming and so may not be the best option if you want a hassle free way of getting rid of your goods.

Trade In

Another option is to trade in your DVDs and Blu-Rays for cash on specialist sites; there are several of them on the web. These sites make the process of getting rid of your old movies easy. You can normally just type in the title of your old film into the site search box and you'll be given a value for it instantly. Some sites also allow you to scan the Blu-Ray or DVD's barcode using an app on your phone or by using your webcam. Then, it's simply a case of sending off your items and getting paid. The process is quick and uncomplicated and perfect if you want to clear out your shelves without any bother.
