Good tip for everyone. If you ever get burglarized, not much can be done if you can't provide serial numbers. From experience with a family member, it makes your insurance claim much easier too.
We take this one step farther and photograph the items, as well as the serial numbers.
A few years ago we had a car for sale at the end of our country driveway, someone decided to approach the garage door instead of call. He walked back out with a very expensive portable radio. ^ months later I got a call from the cops saying they think they may have found it, serial numbers scratched off.. He said the batteries in the memory were unique and asked if we could identify them. The AA batteries were ones I had custom labeled for one of my 2 stores, got my radio back.
We were less shocked at the fact we got the radio back as we were to who had taken it..
