If you’ve bagged a bargain or two during the sales, remember to register them on your Immobilise account. Every item you log creates a unique record of ownership that is instantly searchable by traders and the police helping to protect them. Most consumer electronics have a serial number and are easily logged in just a few minutes.
As a tradesperson, your tools are your livelihood. Ensure they are all registered on Immobilise.com; it only takes a few minutes to log a serial number or marking. If the worst happens, being registered is your best chance of getting them back.
Every day Golf clubs like these are encountered. All too often, there is no record of who owns them. Register your clubs using the serial number on the hose/neck, shaft, or sole, or use a marking kit like ImmobiGolf. Registration on Immobilise.com increases the chance of repatriation and may be the difference between a suspect being released by Police or charged with theft.
When thieves are this brazen and not deterred by steel U-locks, warning labels, engravings, and other marks are not going to be a deterrent either.
