    Fire insurance claim. 16th Apr 19 at 8:16 PM
    Hi I wonder if anyone can give me advice on pricing things like our vinyl record collection, over 400 album's from 70s till now and cds and dvds. Restoration company have been in and listed our possessions and disposed of them. We have to put a price on everything on their lists. How do you price cds and vinyl bought in the 70s and dvds when they simply give us a list saying 40 dvds. Some were expensive, some were cheap. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thankyou

    You can compare prices against either the record Collector price guide in book form, or go online and look at discogs.com

    Thanks very much for your quick reply. My problem is that I don't have the albums anymore. I was thinking of what would be a fair figure to price them all at. For example we were thinking of 10 pounds per album. We wouldn't want the loss adjusters to. Ome back and say it was too much.

    You price them at the price it'd cost you to replace them... so take a look online at the replacement costs at sites recommend above, or even places like eBay etc.

    Thanks very much. Futuregirl. I was just sort of looking for a general price that would be fair to all.

    I'm sorry you have had a fire. My in-laws had one years ago, everything gone, they did not have to do what you are doing, they got the full amount they were insured for. Be careful your total valuations do not breech the amount you were insured for.
