The VIN Number Explained

The VIN or Vehicle Identification Number is a unique serial number that belongs to your vehicle. Cars made during or after 1981 have a VIN of 17 characters. You will need to provide your VIN to order a vehicle history report. You can typically find your VIN in your car manual. If you don't have the manual, you can also contact the manufacturer and ask for assistance. By submitting a VIN, you will have access to a world of information including the vehicle's owner's name and address, vehicle information such as year, make and model, as well as any lienholder information.
