• 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 You should also mark a neat line through the engraving to show that it is no longer valid when you sell your property.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.
