    Fine if you've got a mobile; I haven't, but as the vast majority of records I've bought have come from charity shops, inadvertent duplicates come cheaply.

    Loaded mine onto Discogs last year...bit of a ball-ache, but worth it in the end. Easy now to add to it as I make purchases.

    I'm pitching my hoard's value somewhere between the median (£8.5k) and the top end (£15k), somewhere around £12k. Feels about right.

    One thing to consider if you're insuring your vinyl is factoring in postage costs in the event of your collection being destroyed. Multiply your item count by £4-£4.50 (which is what I seem to be paying at the moment for domestic shipments) and include that in your estimation of your collection's value.

    Replacing a collection of, say, 500 records (assuming you buy each one from different sellers) will cost you £2250 in postage alone.

    I've just started on cleaning my entire collection - might as well do this at the same time. I predict slow progress though!

    It's not a quick job. Far best done slowly but properly, with the soak during and rest for evaporation after before sleeving in new inners.

    Don't know about you, but if I lost even part of my 1250+ collection, I certainly wouldn't expect to replace them all, even if I could. The insurance companies wouldn't entertain consequential loss (i.e. postage) anyway. The sheer hassles of trying to source duplicates IN THE SAME CONDITION from Ebay, Discogs, Popsike or wherever doesn't bear thinking about.

    If I were to loose my record collection to fire or theft, it would be like a loss in the family! Like your 20 year old dog died! Insurance could lessen the blow, but it would be a real chore to even attempt to replace them. If a flood came and I had to leave suddenly, my records and photos would be the only items I would pack, all else can be replaced.

    Iíve made my son in law promise he will take possession of my collection, and stereo. He tells me itís morbid, but he has promised to keep the Records and not sell them. By the way he does like my kind of music. He can sell the stereo, to help pay to plant me in the ground. Or keep it and bury me in the woods?

    I understand that a short sing-song before tossing the cadaver into a wood-chipper is rising in popularity.
