Paul and his family started the Cash For Records business over 20 years ago. It originally began out of love for old vinyl records. Eventually, the business prospered and people all over Cleveland started cleaning out their attics and basements, in search of thick, black records so they could trade them in for cash.

I have a big, old box of vinyl records in Ohio. It's too heavy to move. Can you help?

Absolutely! Although it's always great if you can have the vinyl records immediately available for us to inspect, we understand that sometimes these big old boxes are just too heavy to move. Vinyl Records from family can often be lost and forgotten. When you finally discover where your vinyl records have been hiding, they are stuck in tricky places up in the attic or down in the basement. As long as we know where those old records are hidden, we would be happy to provide assistance.

Paul and the team at Cash For Records will do the heavy lifting. You just sit back, relax and count your cash.

How can I tell what records I have? How do I know if I have LPs, 45s, 78s?

Although we primarily buy albums, 45's and 78's, we will look at other items. Not sure what you have? Just read below to find out about the different types of vinyl records.

Sell Vinyl LPs and Record Albums

LPs or Albums

Albums are referred to as LPs or 33s. LP stands for Long Play or Long Playing. The 33 is for Revolutions Per Minute or RPM. This is how many times the record spins in one full minute. Old LPs are usually 12 inches in diameter with a small hole in the center compared to other records. Just like a new release in today's industry, LP Albums are loaded with songs by the Artist or Group. Most of the time there will be a number of songs on each side of the record. Like today's albums, they will also come with artwork and pictures. These are sometimes graded & priced separately.

45s are 7-inch vinyl records that typically have one song on each side. They are much smaller than Albums or Old LPs. Also, they have a larger hold in the middle compared to LPs smaller hole. Instead of artwork or pictures, the 45s usually came with a plain paper sleeve.

Sell Beatles 78 Record

78s or Shellac Records

78s are 10-inch vinyl records. 78s are slightly larger than 45s 7-inch single vinyl records but also smaller than full 12-inch vinyl albums or LPs. They were pretty much the middle ground between LPs and and 45s. However, they were made of brittle material that uses a shellac resin. Because of the fragile material that was used to make the records, 78s were often referred to as Shellac or Shellac Records.

Sell 12inch Vinyl Record - Denise Williams

12 inch Singles

These are the same size as LPs but only had one song on each side. These records were made especially for DJs and came in a plain paper sleeve.

Sell Jazz EP record


These records were the cross between LPs and Singles. They had more songs than singles but still less than a full length LP Album. EP is short for Extended Play.

Should I clean my old, vinyl records before having them inspected, graded or given a cash money offer?

You don't need to clean your records before we inspect them. We actually recommend against because if you are unfamiliar with the proper care of records, it could end up damaging them. There are certain solutions and brushes to use when cleaning vinyl records. To learn more, take a look at our "How To Take Care Of And Store Vinyl Records" page.

We have the knowledge and expertise needed to care for your old vinyl records for years to come. We are committed to using the highest level of quality care and products when handling your records.

How much are my old records worth?

Prices are generally determined by the artist, title and condition of the record.

Once we see your collection or various vinyl records in person, we will be able to determine a price and make a cash offer.
