Free VIN Check

VINCheck. Finally a "Free" way to check out a used car prior to purchase. National Insurance Crime Bureau launched a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) Check website that will show you if a vehicle had been stolen or badly damaged in a wreck, flood or fire. Although for $19.99 to $49.99 and sometimes more, sites like Carfax and Experian will give you an in depth report, NICB's site will give you enough to make a sound decision, free. Story here.

You can enter your auto's VIN here.

Re: Free VIN Check

the site is legit. it's unfortunate you didn't have any luck. maybe try entering your VIN again. good luck next time ;)

The National Insurance Crime Bureau is a not-for-profit organization that receives support from approximately 1,000 property/casualty insurance companies. The NICB partners with insurers and law enforcement agencies to facilitate the identification, detection and prosecution of insurance criminals.

Re: Free VIN Check

I always warn people before looking at these types of sites.  Here's my story.  I had a 2001 Toyota Celica back in 2004 that was totaled in a car accident.  Since it wasn't my fault, (another lady ran a red light and tboned me), her insurance paid the car off completely to the finance company.  Now mind you, the car was totalled. It was in a junk yard with a bent frame.  So a few years go by, and I'm at work at a tax office, and my coworker orders a carfax report for some cars she's looking to buy.  She got that one month unlimited look up package they offer, so she asked me if I wanted to look up the car I had owned at the time, a VW.  I did and nothing came up on it.  The next day, I brought the VINs of my family's cars (she had offered to let me use it.) and I also brought that Celica's VIN.. just out of curiousity.  To my surpise, the car had been sold again in 2005 and had NO record of the severe accident where that car was declared undrivable because of a bent frame.  So, I don't trust these anymore.

Re: Free VIN Check

i'm wondering if when it was totally, the title had been converted to a 'salvage' title? i have heard of that being the case while attending a few auto auctions in the past.

Re: Free VIN Check

The main problem with sites like these are that the insurance companies are under no obligation to report anything to the sites. So some will have better/more/less info than others. It kinda depends on where they get their info from, and how up to date it is. Still, I've used them in the past just for S&Gs to see what I can see...
