Movie props are extremely entertaining and interesting collectibles to own. They have cultural significance and rarity that help them retain their value, and they also usually elicit an emotional connection, especially if you know the movie they’re in well.
So it’s no wonder that if you’re selling your movie props, you feel obligated to get the best price possible for them.
Here’s a guide from Neatstuff Collectibles on how to sell your movie props for top dollar:
Table of Contents
First, Organize Them And Take A Lot Of Pictures
Hopefully your movie props have been well stored and organized since you’ve owned them so they retained their value and are easy to catalog and photograph as you’re preparing to put them up for sale. This would include things like keeping them away from direct sunlight and storing them in places that don’t experience rapid temperature and moisture changes like garages, basements and attics.
Determine Why You’re Selling And How Much Time You’re Willing To Invest
Once everything is cataloged, organized, photographed and ready for sale, you need to determine how much you want to sell them for. Placing a value on your movie props is hard, because the value of any collectible is simply what someone else is willing to pay for it since they don’t have any intrinsic monetary value. The easiest and quickest way to do this is to simply determine what similar items have sold for recently and adjust based on condition and the current state of the market.
Place Your Movie Prop For Sale At The Appropriate Place Based On Your Goals
Once you have everything set, you should determine what’s most important to you in this sale. Is it to get the most money possible for your item? Is it to simply unload it as quickly as possible? These answers will determine if you’re better suited to sell it to a local collectibles store, sell it online or sell it at a local auction house.
