Business overview

At Les's Models we REALLY DO VALUE your collections large or small, we guarantee politeness and sound advice, and will OFFER YOU THE BEST CASH PRICES ANYWHERE .

We pay cash for any railways, Dinky toys or Corgi toys you are wanting to sell.

Our business was established in 1991 and since then we have been been giving honest valuations for models and toys throughout the North West of England. If you would like to learn more about your toy or model, we are happy to provide friendly advice and information for you.

Our valuations are provided completely free of charge and you are of course under no obligation to sell your toy. We are always courteous and discreet.

But we have now been retained by one of Merseyside’s largest legal practices to evaluate items from their probate department for example we have just valued this very rare 1950’s toy crane which is worth £1500, needless to say the executors were delighted.

We had a surprise visit yesterday from Jools Holland who came to purchase some stock on his way to the Lytham Festival where he was appearing with Anne-Marie and Tom Jones. He has asked us to source some special items which Hannah will hopefully be able to find in the next couple of weeks.

A highly professional and fair tradesman.

Very easy and pleasant transaction for 84 boxed Corgi Vanguards.
I needed to move on to something new and Les was able to help me by offering a very fair buy price.
No bargaining, no haggling ... simply friendly business which is MUCH appreciated.
When I think of how some of the model train dealers try to squeeze every penny out of a collection with horror stories of drop in market value and questionable comments about the condition of items.
Thanks Les . Hopefully there are a few gems in the collection.

Fair and pleasant transaction

Having looked to sell my Hornby train collection, I attained several quotes which severely undervalued the collection. However, Les gave me a very fair valuation on the collection and I accepted. He drove a fair way to pick up from my house. All in all, a pleasant transaction.

Great and honest service

Having to dispose of my collection of aircraft models, cars, buses and coaches I had no idea where to start. Did a Google search and found Les's site. Like what I saw so contacted him. Very prompt and courteous responses followed by a fair offer. What I liked in particular is that he collected them so I met the lovely man in person.. No quibbling over offer, paid in full immediately. Cannot thank him enough for his great, honest and courteous approach to doing business. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking to dispose of a model collection. Very many thanks Les!

We inherited a car collection so contacted Les who got back us straight away. He offered us a fair price and picked up the collection from our house. Couldn't have been easier. Les was great to work with, very personable and super efficient service.
