FS: Lot Sale of 119 DVD's (Ignore, Items Removed)

Hey Guys:

I'm selling off my collection of DVD's, as they no longer really get too much use nowadays. I'm selling them as a lot for the sake of convenience (and hopefully brevity).

Here's a semi-alphabetical listing of my collection. I take very good care of my possessions, and my DVD collection has been no exception. I'm actually selling these to fund the purchase of a watch I've had my eye on. Incidentally, the watch forum that I am en established member of is the reference I am using to attest to my honesty, transparency, and standing as a good seller. I have no eBay experience, as I prefer private transactions. I have completed dozens of transactions on the watch community I frequent, which can be seen here:

watchuseek

My user name is UpstandingCitizen (a play on words because of my appreciation of Citizen brand watches), which can help provide an idea of my character as a seller.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or inquiries. I am an online student, and thus am usually very easy to get in touch with.

In my research it appears that a $3.50 average is the benchmark of a good deal, so based on that we would be looking at about $415. To be perfectly honest, I want to price these to sell, so I'll come in at $360 USD (just about a $3 avg. price), which includes shipping anywhere within the CONUS, and I am also willing to eat the Paypal fees. I am willing to listen to offers, but I'm only accepting offers at this time for the lot of them. Also, please no trade inquiries. :0)

Anyhow, here's my list (again, sorry for the backward nature of the alphabetical order). I'm a big time movie buff in my own right, so I think you guys will be pleasantly surprised to see a whole bunch of really nice titles in here.

Re: FS: Lot Sale of 119 DVD's

So far a tire kicker or two.

I just want to elaborate on the fact that I'm open to offers (albeit reasonable ones).

Thanks for looking guys!

-Garrett

P.S.: If some of you more experienced DVD traders are able to chime in, is there a better place that I might post this lot? I'd really like to sell it as a group for convenience, and I really hate giving eBay my money in form of commission. Is half(dot)com reputable and worth a shot?

Thanks again, fellas. :0)

garrett? not mitch?

in any case, selling dvds in bulk is pretty tough, especially if you want a fair price. if you do not get offers on the whole lot, possibly consider selling your dvds here in lots of 10 at $XX per lot?

i believe fye stores recently ended their promotion of an extra 20% in value when selling dvds to them. that is helpful eh?

you can try another online site that pays for dvds? like newtownvideo or secondspin?

you can try an ad in craigslist?

good luck with it and go lakers!

Thanks for the advice! :0)

Perhaps I'll look into second spin, as I know that there is a local shop near me in Costa Mesa.

By the way, I can't wait for the upcoming season...I'm just so glad we resigned L.O.! :0)

Ron Artest, baby! Just what the Lakers need... a tough, no-nonsense inside presence to compensate for that human tub of jello known as Andrew Bynum.

On topic... LakersGM, half dot com is definitely reputable, but you can only sell items one at a time there, so that's not gonna work for you.

As far as your titles... yes, you have a lot of quality titles there, but most of the forum members (like me) already own about half of them. So selling them all in one lot here is gonna be pretty tough.

Good luck with whatever choice you make.

Thanks for the advice, I'm thinking that maybe I'll just go the singles route on Half. :0)
