We support environmental sustainability by helping encourage recycling of VHS tapes and analog media equipment.

Why Sell Rare VHS Movies Here?
One important thing to note about VT is that it reaches a niche audience of VHS tape enthusiasts – many are into rare and vintage VHS movies and older format playback equipment. They're often searching for unique VHS movies, cassettte tapes, reel-to-reels, and so forth. So, it's a really great platform to get your used gear ads or service ads in front of a diverse group of analog media enthusiasts. Also, keep in mind that we never sell your personal info or run any outside (Google) advertising.

Who's Buying Rare VHS Tapes?
Streaming media service providers and online video stores have revolutionized the way most people watch films and TV series. Until a few years ago, it was common for most households to have an extensive VHS tape, Betamax tape, cassette tape, or reel-to-reel tape collection. However, some movie and music enthusiast still prefer the physicality of older analog media formats, while other's don't have access to the Internet or streaming services. There's never been a better time to sell your rare VHS movies (and other vintage media) to VHS collectors!
