Default Tens of Thousands of caps and resistors and diodes!

I have been given buckets and buckets of electrical parts than I have no use for- all good stuff such as rubycon 100v 100uf caps and all in unused and new looking condition.

For sale or at least advise me on what is best to do with them!

You gotta list 'em or sell 'em in "woder box"es with fixed rate per box and unknown random stuff inside...
UK international shipping would be pricey...

Can you list some of the key components or take a few shots so we can see what you have?

Do

Step 1: Sort them all out into varied types, electrolytic/polyester, carbon / wirewounds.
Step 2: Sort through every single component and count their values up, do a tally of how many you have of each value.
Step 3: Come back here and report on your findings in 3-4 working days.
Step 4: If you have an assorted amount, consider doing assorted 'kits' and selling them in bags.

I would skip doing the resistors if they are colour coded tho, that would be a pain in the butt, decoding each one... Once you get the hang of seeing the same colour over and over again tho its generally easier to sort them out.

Thats the one thing i hate with electronics... colour coding.... its ok for most i guess, but im red, green and brown colour blind and with 2 out of 3 primary colours im pretty useless and have to use a multimeter to find any unknown values.

So when you pack em into bags make sure you put the values on bags please!

so now a joke request by freak that was intended to be OTT as far as requirements, has been taken seriously and new conditions have been added? are you for real littlerick? I gather these will be effectively given away for very little money, yet you are insisting he instead of taking a few photos, has to measure, sort and bag these parts before sending them, when you can just use a multimeter to do that yourself?

or you are joking too?
