This is why it is so important to LIST all this information on the Stolen-Property.com database today.THIS LIST IS PRIVATE, ONLY TO BE SEEN BY YOU. If there is ever a need to report stolen property, POSTING is just one click of the mouse. When your property is recovered, simply un-select the check box and that's it!

The difference between a LISTING and POSTING.

A LISTING is private, only you can view when your LISTING(s) when logged in. A LISTING has vital information about your personal property, including serial number or vehicle identification number (VIN), manufacturer, photos and receipts. Having this information is essential for police reports and can be the difference of a declined insurance claim or getting paid!

A POSTING is public, to be reported as stolen property on the Stolen-Property.com web site. In a tragic event such as a fire, all property and proof there-of can be lost, resulting in no payment for these items on an insurance claim.
