    Surely you mean £30 down Oxfam for the lot?

    Ok here it is moved into my flat 1 year ago in the last few months purchased:

    bought 1 x £6,600 bed
    bought 1 x £5,300 sofa
    bought 1 x £5,400 computer
    bought 1 x £3,000 sofa bed
    bought 5 x £5,000 (total) chairs

    I have the receipts for all of these items.

    So I called Nationwide this Saturday morning asking to see whether or not I would have to extend my cover and/or declare these items as luxury expensive items so that their full amount would be covered and not only the first £1,000 of each item.

    The woman I spoke to who actually dealt with Home Insurance only was totally clueless, she didn't seem to know whether or not my existing £21,000 insurance amount (which I want to extend) will even cover these items at all or only up to £1,000 on each item or for the full amount.

    I would assume that you simply designate these items as luxury items which are over £1,000 in value and insure them individually (as I already have done with an item I through away 2 months ago) but she didn't seem to have any idea !

    She fobbed me off basically and I am cheesed off.

    So in your wisdome do you have any good recommendations for an home insurance company that knows what its doing and can actually insure home furniture / electrical items that are up to £7,000 ????

    AXA insurance are they any good ?

    thanks in advance

    AXA are a good Insurer.

    a better bet might be Hiscox - they do a lot of High Net Worth stuff - probably more suitable in your case.

    The Mac Pro with all of the extras will set you back over $24K.....

    I have more memory in my box... and I have the same main hard drives and my box was well under £1000.

    I can't belive anybody would buy that....
    Ahh but does it have a snake on the side and blue neon's on the front?

    ...thought not.

    Guys it includes the matress which cost £1000.

    .
    I think that I can understand the 1000 quid mattress (mine cost 250 pounds and all it is is a roll of foam, albeit a high quality roll of foam).

    Its the 4 and half grand for the rest I don't get.

    I never knew such poverty existed. A sofa bed? Why didn't you just buy a flat with enough bedrooms? Cheapskate.
