Do Not Throw Away Your VHS Tapes Until You Have Read This!

Cast your mind back to the dozens of VHS tapes lying in a box in your attic ranging from Disney classics to The Lion King. While those are not valuable, there are numerous VHS video tapes in existence that are worth quite a lot of money.


Due to that fact there are not many copies of each tape, certain VHS tapes have become rather valuable. Overwhelmingly the majority of films are the horror genre with many banned quickly after their release. We suggest looking for VHS tapes that never made it to DVD or Blue-ray.


VHS collectors cite that current movies feel too cleaned-up on DVD and Blu-ray. They enjoy the mistakes made and the bad makeup and imperfections. Watching them on VHS is closer to the old drive-in or grind-house theatre, the way the director intended it to look.


At Oxford Duplication Centre, when you bring your tapes in for duplication, we ensure to advise clients about their other VHS tapes. Currently we have helped save several clients many hundred of pounds because they have had VHS tapes on the valuable list! How exciting for them and for us.
