    Thanks for tips all, I'm still working out a deal but will be buying off the guy at a set price and I'll then sell bits on to recoup. The Technics look in really good shape, so will probably keep one back for myself! I don't think the neighbours will appreciate me keeping the power amps though.....

    Might be interested in these 45's depending on cost, approx number, condition and where you're based.

    If you're outside the UK probably not worth courier costs etc etc.

    Thanks, I had a little look around and see that some of the kit does sell, but probably not a price worth making all the effort for. I'm catching up with him properly next week or so, so I think I'll do what you and others suggest and offer a price for the Technics and anything thrown in is a bonus.

    Sadly, with the exception of the Technics turntables there is unlikely to be much value in the other kit. Especially if it has been standing. Things like mixer pots and faders will need a dose of switch cleaner and thorough testing to bring back to reliable working condition (and who wants to gig with unreliable kit). Same goes for amps to a lesser extent. This sort of thing can be found used for little money on ebay or cash converters. Usualyl there's more supply than demand for it too. Looking there will give you an idea of value. If he just wants to get shut, and you do't mind selling the stuff individually later, I would offer him a fixed price for the lot, basically buy the 1200s with the rest thrown in.

    Bear in mind these days most the young uns seem to DJ with mp3s and traktor type software. They probably would not look twice at older gear.

    Comission deals are a logistic nightmare, especially for collections. You'll have to keep track of every tenner you make in every little deal that happens. what if you decide to keep a few? Do you have to pay your mate half for that?

    I would do nothing.

    It's just a lot of hassle. Let him work it out for himself.

    Or if he's asking you to do it, he should offer the commission. Like: 'if you sell this shit for me, I'll give you half'.

    I did consider that, but I know for certain he would take commission if it was the other way around and probably charge a lot more than I will end up doing so!! There's quite a bit of kit to shift and its been sat since the late 90s so likely I'm going to have to spend some time getting everything up and running again.

    started a topic Selling on behalf on somebody (slightly RR)

    Selling on behalf on somebody (slightly RR)

    Looking for a bit of advice..... A work colleague of mine has come into a large amount of DJ kit. Turntables (2xTechnics 1210's), CD players, amps, etc. as well as several large boxes of 45s (mostly 90s indie, nothing especially rare on first glance). He has no interest in music and asked me to help him sell everything on, which I don't mind doing, but I've no idea what a sensible commission rate would be.

    Has anybody any experience of doing similar? What did you charge?
