Keeping Your Belongings Safe & Secure
Recording the details of your household items and contents can increase your chances of having them returned to you if they are stolen.
We have put together a Marking + Recording Valuables Form to get you started in recording your items. The form can be printed and filled in as a hard copy (to be kept in a safe place, or downloaded as a digitally editable PDF, a Google Sheet or an Excel spreadsheet, so that you can fill in and maintain an electronic copy.
You can also protect your property and belongings by:
Engraving tools and bicycles with your Driver’s License number.
Taking photos of any unique items, such as jewellery and art works, and saving these to your files as well.
Keeping receipts, warranties, and valuations in a safe place.
Taking photos or videos of jewelry, art, and other precious items.
When out and about, keeping your bags containing valuables, wallets, purses etc secure and close to your body.
Always locking your vehicles when you leave them and taking your keys with you.
Keeping in contact with your neighbours and letting one another know if you see anything unusual.
