The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) has access to a database of vehicles which were reported as stolen within the past five years and remain unrecovered or declared as salvage. This information is being made available, free of charge, as a public service to consumers. The information in VINCheck is concerning vehicles insured in the United States.
This database contains a "salvage" file and an "insurance theft" file which is the information VINCheck searches during queries. The terms "total loss" and "salvage" are not synonymous in the insurance industry and that is important to understand when using VINCheck. Not all vehicles identified as a total loss will become salvage. A salvage determination is made by individual insurance companies based on individual company policies and applicable state law.
By checking a VIN against this database, you agree to not hold the NICB, its employees, Board of Governors, Members, agents or any other entity which provided this information to NICB, liable for any reason as a result of your use of this information including, but not limited to, if the information proves to be inaccurate.
In order to continue with your inquiry as to whether a VIN is in the database, you must agree to and accept these Terms and Conditions of Use.
The NICB VINCheck database is made possible through the cooperation of participating NICB members. To view a list of those members, please click
