So You Want To Sell Your HOT WHEELS?

I’ve recently been getting a lot of emails and phone calls from people asking how to sell their Hot Wheels.  Some have a few specialized cars, others have whole collections containing hundreds or thousands of cars.  My answer to each person is the same and contains the following suggestions:

1)  Realize the economy is not what it was a few years ago and you are most likely not to get what you would like to get – or possibly even what you originally paid for your cars.

2)  Know the value you want for your car or collection and have a good, itemized list of the cars.   A potential buyer will want to know what they are buying and for how much.

3)  If you don’t want to or can’t sell on Ebay, then try to locate buyers through one of the many Hot Wheel clubs across the country.   There are also Hot Wheel  clubs located in other countries if you don’t mind selling/shipping internationally . . .

  • Canada
  • Indonesia
  • The Netherlands
  • Argentina
  • Hungary
  • Germany
  • Puerto Rico
  • Singapore

Find these clubs and get  information about them on a site called – Hot Wheels Collectors.  Here you’ll find a database of Hot Wheel clubs for each state and country as well as a Forum and other helpful links.    To see the clubs listed for each state or country, simply select the location from the offered list.


Unless you simply need the cash, consider holding on to your collection.  Hopefully the economy will turn around and Hot Wheels will once again enjoy the demand they did a few years back.
