    I'm after some advice as to a rough valuation of contents for insurance for a house I am buying.

    If you were say, buying all the kitchen goods new (minus a dishwasher probably, on account of space), new 3 piece suite, £500 TV/Xbox/DVD, etc, new house furniture/carpets/beds (3 rooms) and had some older laptops/tower PC, Green kit, but nothing over £1000 and taking a lot of stuff with us, what sort of total valuation is reasonable? No expensive jewellry or anything like that either.

    I'm having a bitch of a time finding anything on the web that doesn't want me to put my whole life on there first, and even then it keeps asking me for my own valuation of the contents.

    £30,000 is not unreasonable.

  3. Certainly close enough for government work ;-)

    Yup...remember the little things add up - 1m long shelf of DVD's or CD's is £1000ish to replace.

  5. Err on the side of caution; over insure rather than under insure.
