The set value table hasn’t been updated super recently, but if you know what sets you have, and know their condition of completeness, you can give the Lot Calculator tool on here a try. It’ll give a rough ballpark of value if sets were sold individually. :)

OK. So where to start. Are these new and boxed? Did you buy with a view to selling or are they a collection?
To get a value, stick them all into your Brickfolio and take it from there....

Well you are at the right place to get advice.
Like thebrickdad says it depends on so many factors. The most important in my opinion is, “How much time and effort you are willing to put in. “ Typically the more time equals more profit.
Another big factor is your buy in cost. If you were a buyer at 40%-50%, it’s hard not to make money on retired sets, but it also depends on which sets.
Unfortunately, Benny’s spaceship hasn’t done as well as most resellers originally thought.
You will probably get a lot more informative advice if you weren’t as vague in your questions. People here will you along your way, but typically you will need to show more effort into your questions by being more specific(like the ocean).

Hi guys

they are all my own sets that I have purchased over the last 10 years from brand new.

most of them don't have boxes apart from the bigger sets and most of the marvel, DC.

Trouble is my son and I broke the sets up into colour coordinated tubs but I now see the downside to that as I am slowly trying to put the sets back together.

I will take the advice given already and watch this space:)

What bigfanofnu said is true, a post like this has been created numerous times, "what should I do with this?", "how do i sell my collection?", the thing is, we need way more information, photos, details on what you have.  There is no one answer fits all.

hi again guys,

 I will attach a few pics of some of the sets I have as I am still sorting moving boxes out!

I have also started the job of inputting the sets onto the brickfolio :)

This answers it for me:  I would sell in bulk.  Might be worth looking into values of individual minifigures, but we will all be dead by the time you successfully put back together 300 sets.

I agree with @carini26 Unless you have some really rare exclusives, it's not going to be worth the time to piece them all together again. There will inevitably be missing parts and there are no boxes so a bulk sale sounds the simplest way to do it.
