Not sure this “protects your bike from theft” - might help you get what remains of it back though
Deals like this take jobs away from hard working citizens like me

How am supposed to feed my family
I work nights taking bikes of the streets and selling them on Craigslist, eBay and Gumtree

I had my last two bikes done and both were stolen with no sign or nothing back in a few years so don’t see the point of this anymore

Its a nice idea in theory but one that would rarely work I think.
Some pretty hefty charges for marking your bike. Presumably the 'free' bit is just to register on line?
Even if the police find your bike the alleged thief just has to say "purchased of someone in street mate" and they get a slap on worst that's it.

But of course this is wroth doing as better than nothing.

Not exactly free is it - you have to purchase a kit for it to be of any (questionable) use...

I agree. It's a bit like saying as long as your car has it's number plates on, it's thief proof.

I know, how dare they not print and post stickers etc. for free!

I do agree that just the registration itself is of negligible use, but worth a go for free and may help with recovery (but I think that OP title is a bit misleading).
phone the police and tell them your bikes been stolen you be lucky to get them to turn up for a statement.
"Police approved" doesn't mean a lot.

From my experience my local constabulary only use Immobilise.com. So "BikeRegister is used by every UK Police Force" in their FAQs is incorrect.

Note that Immobilise can also be used to register phones, laptops etc.

Probably wouldn't harm to register your bike with both but anything else with a serial number can be registered with Immobilise.

my petrol trimmer got stolen from my shed and we had a very good idea who it was and they didn’t want to know...
It is free to register the individual frame number of your bike and add photos for proof of bike ownership. Great ideas my opinion they didn't have to and it's just another layer. Heat added. I've put all my bike on her a few years ago.
Is the police we have to sort out to actually help. We don't even have a police station near us anymore they all got closed down
'Whoops, looks like something went wrong.' is all I'm getting when completing the registration
Stolen bike plod not interested, run over by a car, still not interested..
However park near the airport ( not on a yellow line) and they give you dogs abuse!

Or see the slimey bill with their speed guns catching motorists just over the 30mph speed limit (and spending all day there)

I'm sure they get a lot of job satisfaction catching the unsuspecting motorists.
I got my £750 carbon bike stolen from outside my home last week and the cops weren't interested other than doing their admin on it. No follow up, nothing.
