Why buy from us and not the big guys?

The Thirdhand Difference

Lifetime Guarantee

We believe in every record we sell. In addition to our 30 day free return policy, we also offer a Lifetime Buyback Guarantee.

  • If you are dissatisfied with a record you buy from us, for any reason, at any time, we will buy it back from you.
  • We will buy it back for the price you paid for it minus a $5 restocking fee.
  • We will provide you with a prepaid shipping label, the cost of which will come out of the refund.
  • The record must include all original disk(s) and jacket.
  • We reserve the right to revoke this guarantee to people who abuse it.


Refurbishment Process

We add value to every non-new record by putting it through our Refurbishment Process. For every record, we:

  • Professionally vacuum wash the discs on a Pro-Ject VC-S3
  • Place discs in a fresh audiophile rice paper inner sleeve, and the jacket in a 3 mil protective outer sleeve
  • Rigorously evaluate and grade to the Goldmine standard, and include detailed notes on any flaws
  • (coming soon) Provide access to relevant market and musical metadata to enhance the collection and listening experience through the lifetime of ownership
