Default Value of items to follow question

Hi all,
I am curently compiling my list of items to follow for when we land in August, and I noticed on the website it says value of items in canadian dollars is required.

Question 1) is this a generic value, as most goods are a few years old (couches etc).

question 2) how much detail is required for itmes such as CD's (will they laugh at my taste in music if I list individual albums)??

Any info reatly appreciated

Sean

don't get that specific

x boxes of cds - total value $y

is enough

if in doubt guess to the best of your ability ,

putting NVC (no commercial value) is also an option

The value should be how much if bought new as advised by our shipping company when we sent our stuff.......Its so they know how much it would cost to replace. We struggled with photos etc......How can you put a value on that??!! In the end I wrote nothing for the price of those as we couldnt have replaced them. For CDs I averaged them at about 8 GBP each roughly and wrote a total figure.

Is this for the goods to follow or for shipping insurance. If it is for shipping insurance, check what the actual replacement cost will be in Canada. If you have to make a claim, they will try to claim you are under insured and try and shaft you on the payout. We are hopefully getting our final payout tomorrow, which will result in a £13000 total being paid, as against their first offer of just over £5000. I worked in insurance claims in the UK, so knew how to play them at their own game.

Good to know Rich thanks.
..and if I have any trouble I might call on you for advice if you can get that kind of money ha ha

It is just for the goods to follow at the moment, final move over not imminent, so got some time sort out shpping stuff.
