Selling Used VCRs

I have many VCRs with or without the DVD combo. They just need minor cleaning. What would be the best way to sell them? I hate that I just have them sitting around the house taking up space. Most all of them just need cleaning.

Try donating them to seniors homes. Most of them have favorite movies they brought with them but will allow them to be shown on movie night in the lounge. I do clean outs and donate all movies to a local seniors home and they love them but run seriously short of vcrs to play them. Susan from Hamilton

This original question was posted about 10 years ago, when VCRs were still relatively common. I don't think there are many buyers out there anymore.

I would check on Craigslist, eBay or Facebook Marketplace to see if there is any demand and what they might be going for.

Good luck!

Donate them to the women's shelter or the nursing homes. I am sure they would appreciate it very much. Or run an ad in the paper FREE VCR's you come pick up... With DVD's out now I can not imagine anyone paying you any money for the VCR's but free anything can always find a home somewhere!

You could always advertise them on freecycle.

If you know how to crochet, there is an amazing site called reycledbags.com I've made up a handbag and an evening bag out of old vcr tapes and they are awesome! have a look before getting rid of them. The bags could be made up and donated to charity jumble sales or whatever.

Brenda I could maybe take a couple off your hands. My mom is in desperate need of a VCR right now.

I work in Columbia and would be willing to check them out if any are still available. Please let me know. I can send you my email address.

Hello my name is Steve, I was reading your comments and have something I need to add, My brother passed away last year and left me around 65 VCRs, 20 DVD players and roughly 5000 used VHS tapes .. He was one of the best video recorders I've ever saw. That man could record on 10 to 14 machine's at the same time on as many different cable boxes. He had never watched a single commercial in his life. With that said what the hell am I to do with stuff? Anyone?
