VIN verification isn’t a crash history report, but instead an inspection of that vehicle, make, model, year, body style (style model), engine size, GVRW (Gross vehicle weight), mileage, if the Federal Certification Label is there, an emissions certification and, of course, where it’s attached to. Every vehicle has a unique Identification Number or ZIP code. These codes are used by manufacturers as a means of securing their vehicles in case of an auto accident. For instance, if your car is the brand and model indicated on the insurance policy, you wouldn’t drive it into an uninsured motorist or an uninsured driver, right? The VIN will help determine this and a trained technician can quickly and easily conclude if your car is in fact covered by the insurance policy.

There are many ways that a VIN verification can be carried out. One method used by some auto insurance companies is that the VIN is scanned electronically by a handheld reader device and is then compared with a database of physical inspections that the company performs on a regular basis. If two cars have been inspected by the same technician under precisely the same conditions, the second car is considered a match. The physical inspection results can be compared against the printout from the first inspection. If these match up, you’ll know without a doubt that your vehicle is covered.
However, not every vehicle is examined on a regular basis. For instance, if a Colorado license plate is removed, the technician may not perform a visual inspection to determine whether the vehicle identification number has been tampered with. If the VIN verification test is not successful because of this, the vehicle title must be purchased at the auction in order to prove ownership. Not all states allow vehicle owners to purchase the vehicle title for this reason – so keep this in mind when researching a potential car auction.
