Stolen laptop. No proof of purchase.

Hi all. The house I live in was unfortunately burgled last night. They got my macbook pro. The problem I'm having is that my insurers don't seem to pay out without proof of purchase. I have long since lost the box and receipt.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Is there anything I can do?

Ask computer shops for old boxes or get one from someone you know.

Maybe a box would work. I just want it replaced. Crazy to pay for cover and not get it back.
Crazy that I have to go to dishonest means to get something genuine replaced.

I mean it makes sense, cuz otherwise it'd be pretty easy to get a free expensive computer. You should definitely keep receipts of super expensive stuff like that.

In the future, if you ensure things like a laptop, then keep the receipt in a file somewhere.

Do they want the proof of purchase to prove you owned it, or to show how much it cost you?

If it's just the former, do you have any receipts from work done on it at the Apple Store?

Chances are the burglary was staged and one of your housemates did it, so yeah, find out which one is the culprit.

Did you register for a warranty with Apple or wherever you bought the laptop?

A bank statement is probably your best bet but even then it's not a guaranteed success. Good luck man.

Apple has always emailed me a receipt at the point of purchase (even in the physical store)...
