How It Works

What’s a VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-character identifier for your car, truck, or motorcycle. It looks like this: 1VXBR12EXCP901213, and encodes the vehicle’s manufacturer, features, and serial number (The VIN decoder below can decode this information). No two vehicles have the same VIN, so it serves as your car’s fingerprint– this allows for all reports of accidents, title problems, insurance incidents, and more to be tracked through each vehicle’s VIN.

Where I find VIN?
You can find your vehicle’s VIN in the title document, the vehicle registration, and on the insurance policy. The VIN could also be located at the following locations on the car itself:

vin-location

  • On the driver’s side dashboard (viewable through the windshield)
  • On the driver’s side doorn (on a sticker in the door jamb)

Why should I order a VIN report?
A VIN report lets you learn about your vehicle’s history. It includes checks for whether the car has been stolen, experienced accidents, recorded as salvaged, as well as many other title problem checks. Ordering a VIN report before purchasing a vehicle allows you to catch potential problems and purchase with confidence.

How does a VIN check work?
As part of your VIN check, autolookup.com.ng will search your VIN for all associated records available across the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System, which maintains a network of vehicle history data from a wide variety of providers. In fact, all states, insurance companies, and junk and salvage yards are required by federal law to regularly report information to NMVTIS. This enables you to access up-to-date, comprehensive data associated with your vehicle.
