What Is The Best Way To Sell My Lego Collection ? , (Dark Ages Looming)

I have reluctantly decided to part with my Lego collection & sell it all.
My collection is not that big and there are no rare items or sets included.
It is mostly Monster Fighters, LOTR & The Hobbit with a few other random sets totalling about 40 sets that are either still sealed or have been built once, dismantled & zip-loc bagged.
All sets are 100% complete most with the boxes, plus there are some polybags again Monster Fighters, LOTR & The Hobbit.
There is a small selection loose mini figs as well.
I also have a fair amount of loose Lego that is sorted by colour that I am in the process of "bagging up" and weighing, (may well be over 50KG at a guess).
What would be the best way to sell the collection ?, ideally all together with a cash buyer taking it as a complete collection :) , but I know life is not that simple.
I would like to offer it to the Brickset community first via the marketplace, may be "drip-feeding" the sets so I don't get bogged down with wrapping & posting too many sets at one time and then maybe using ebay as a last resort for any "leftovers" as I feel they have made a pretty penny from me over the years from all the Lego & bits "n" bobs I have bought and sold.
So any tips form the Brickset community would be appreciated..... thank you for your time reading my post.
I have attached a couple of PDF's with the list of sets & mini-figs

    First off where abouts are you?
    How much do you want for Monster Fighters Ghost and Halloween Accessory Pack?

    I doubt someone (here) would buy the lot, unless there was a reasonable discount over current prices. You're probably best off listing sets by theme in the marketplace.

    ^ Agreed you are very unlikely to sell this as a complete collection unless you are offering the lot at an absolute bargain price, just from a quick glance at the list you seem to have quite a lot of bigger sets that (assuming you are looking to get some of your money back on them) when added together I'd assume the figure you'd be after is quite high for most people to make in a single purchase.
    There a few bits on there that I might be interested in for the right price, but no way could I shell out a fair price for the whole collection.

    Sorry forgot to say, I am located in Salisbury, UK.
    I can see this may become difficult as:-
    1. I don't want to price them too high that they don't sell !
    2. I don't want to let them go for a pittance or "cut my own throat" to get rid of them !.
    I think I will go with @CCC and list them individually by theme in the Marketplace, maybe including UK Parcelforce 48 shipping included in the price for the big sets ? as postage will again affect the price people are willing to pay.

    disregard my PM then since you are in the UK. Maybe you will find someone close enough to pick up the big ones from you.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 19,654
    I'd list them as £X price for the sets, with postage to be added.

    That way, buyers can put together what sets they want and save a little on postage, rather than pay for postage for each one. Or of course you could discount postage if multiples are bought.

    Either way, good luck. There are some nice sets on there.

    OK & thanks for your input @CCC‌
    I have been looking around ebay but the prices are all over the place and it is providing very little in the way of help, bricklink is the same as well......
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,421
    You're actually close enough to me that I could potentially pick stuff up...think I might have to PM you in a minute! :-P
  • GentlyBenevolentGentlyBenevolent Member Posts: 336
    Okay Dokay...
  • GentlyBenevolentGentlyBenevolent Member Posts: 336
    Well my inbox is starting to get "busy", I won't answer any PM's yet. What I will do is list the sets by theme in the marketplace with some ballpark prices and take it from there..... but give me a couple of hours OK & thank you all for your time & interest.

    And I can confirm GentlyBenevolent is a pleasure to deal with. Thankyou.

    Could this be moved to the marketplace now?
  • GentlyBenevolentGentlyBenevolent Member Posts: 336

    Could this be moved to the marketplace now?

    Some of the Lego is already on the Marketplace.
    I think it would be better if a Mod could close this thread......
    Thanks
