Default update the info about custom seizure

i posted week ago about my products seizure by UK custom.
get letter from them stating that the products are genuine, but the value i declared is below what they think, ( about $12000, i declared as $500).for that reason, they took the items. also told me either i can make a claim or ask for restoration.
so all of sellers must be aware that even genuine products still can be seizured.

anybody share ideal how to avoid this in the future and what kind of carrier you are using ?
many thanks

custom also said, if you claim, you must prove the products you import for yourself use, not for commercial use.
if you ask for a restoration, you must admit that the custom is right to take your items and you are just asking for a restoration.

For starters, nobody importing any item in any country would be naive enough to declare a value thousands of pounds less than the known value.

HMRC know the value of all items that may be brought into the UK. To think otherwise is a great error. To be persuaded by a friend, the Chinese seller, to allow the value to be less is stupidity.
Consequences are goods being seized and at law, the right of HMRC to charge duty & fine individuals.
The IMPORTER of any item has a legal responsibility to make sure they conform to the rules & regulations involved with importation.
