Within the guidelines of the new CDS system, it refers to methods for valuing the shipped items. Several of them mention the need to compare with other similar items imported into the UK. However, there is no mention of where to obtain such data. Is there a link from which one can see values for such similar objects? In my case, these would be used personal effects. Many thanks.

HMRC do not publish any data on the same or similar items goods value. These are generally used where the importer themselves have previous imports of the same or similar goods where there is a transaction value. I would suggest that you have a look at the detailed information on the methods of valuation on the .gov website .. I can’t add a link but if you search for customs notice 252 you will see this contains guidance on valuing used goods.
