Prop­erty iden­ti­fi­ca­tion

Farms & Farm Machinery - - Tips&tricks -

• Per­sonal, house­hold and farm valu­ables should be en­graved or per­ma­nently marked with your driver’s licence num­ber, Prop­erty Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion Code (PIC) or other piece of in­for­ma­tion that is unique to you. You should also mark a neat line through the en­grav­ing to show that it is no longer valid when you sell your prop­erty.

• Con­sider mark­ing items that can­not be en­graved with an ul­tra­vi­o­let pen. (This

mark­ing is only vis­i­ble un­der ul­tra­vi­o­let light.) • Keep a de­tailed in­ven­tory of all per­sonal, house­hold and farm valu­ables. This in­ven­tory should in­clude com­plete de­scrip­tions of mod­els, makes, se­rial num­bers and re­place­ment val­ues.

• Stud stock, ma­chin­ery, jew­ellery, an­tiques and other col­lecta­bles should be

pho­tographed and/or videoed to as­sist with iden­ti­fi­ca­tion.

• Re­ceipts should be kept to prove the le­git­i­mate pur­chase or sale of items.

• Com­put­erised in­ven­to­ries should be backed up and a hard copy kept in case the

com­puter is dam­aged, lost or stolen.

• The in­ven­tory, pho­to­graphs and other doc­u­men­ta­tion should be se­curely stored

in a safe or safety de­posit box.

• Per­sonal, house­hold and farm valu­ables should be ap­pro­pri­ately in­sured.
