    Phone/games/dvd/music recycling is a solid business to be in.

    MusicMagpie buys cds/dvds/games for low prices (I got offered 30p for lots of films, whereas true grit only £2.30)

    It then re-sells them through its network of 14 retail stores + online for far more, so:

    From

    http://www.musicmagpie.co.uk/

    It goes to

    http://www.4cheapcds.com/

    and

    http://www.thatsentertainment.co.uk


    Huge profit margins and a great way to keep 'entertainment' stores on the high street.

    Poundland also sell 2nd hand CD's which come from MusicMagpie I think too, mainly pop early 2000 albums.

    I haven't sold anything to Music Magpie, as their prices seem pretty low but used Cex a few times.

    But Business goes, it's very good idea to make money :)

    Nice, thanks for that info - thats a good patnership between them.

    I am building a site for a client in a similar niche, so this kind of information really help.

    that's one of the reasons we recently bought secondhandcds.co.uk - could consider flipping it for the right price but happy to keep it.

    Haha, ever the domainer!

    However, I said similar niche, not the same! Client wants a brandable anyway.

    WeBuyAnyCar.com is pretty much the same. It's owned by the car dealer Carcraft I believe.

    Purchases cars at a reduced price then sells them on across their large car supermarkets.
