All large and high valued items must be listed individually, but you don’t need to write down everything that is in each bag or box.
For example, a box containing ten shoes can be listed as:
‘Box of 10 shoes – £200’
However, if there is a particularly high valued item in the box it should be mentioned on the inventory. In this example it might be listed as:
‘Box of 10 shoes – UGG boots worth £110 – value for entire box £200’
In this case the insurers would assume the remaining total of £90 is divided up between the other nine pairs of shoes, giving them an average value of £10 each.
