Please ensure you log ALL of your valuable items on www.immobilise.com - the national property register. Police have access to this database and can search the identifiers and then immediately find out the rightful owner!
Bikes, mobile phones, laptops, tablets, sat navs, smart watches, MP3 players, cameras, games consoles, audio/visual, jewellery, silverware and antiques. (Photos show the exact design and details, which cannot be easily explained, once the item has gone) This will mean you have a record of the specific details of your valuables, in the unfortunate event they are stolen. But it also means this assists us in identifying any property may be stolen and not with its rightful owner and hence this means, we can seize it, deal with the offender and return your property – ALL WITH A SIMPLE FRAME / SERIAL NO CHECK.
