Free Virginia VIN Check
In Virginia, any vehicle that is involved in a crime must be forfeited to Virginia law enforcement. Because of this, criminals prefer to do away with their cars by selling them to gain some bucks in return.
VinCheck.info gets records from state agencies and shows them to buyers. Data on titles, thefts, repairs, accidents and history are among the details collected. Anyone with a VIN or plate number can access vehicle data at no cost.

Why Should I Run a Virginia VIN Check?
Check for accidents. Vehicle damages vary in extent and repercussions. However, some are extreme enough to be considered unsafe for driving. The best way to protect yourself against substandard vehicles is to examine vehicle parts for safety and reliability. According to the 2019 Virginia Crash Report, a total of 128,172 traffic crashes were reported in 2019. In 771 fatal traffic crashes, 827 people were killed. Based on the 2019 IIHS report, Virginia’s crash fatality rate was lower than the national crash fatality rate (0.97 vs 1.10 per hundred million vehicle miles) in 2019.
Check for thefs. According to the FBI’s 2019 Crime in US reports, Virginia had a total of 10,269 incidents of motor vehicle theft in 2019. Mere appearance does not tell the whole story. What seems like a good car might have been a subject of an ongoing auto theft retrieval operation. Run a free car report by VIN to check the vehicle history of any stolen cars.
Check for title brands. Flood, hail-damage and salvage titles are prime examples of vehicles that you should watch out for. They are marked for good reason: to tell future buyers and other parties about a car’s past damages. Virginia, unlike its western counterpart, is not listed among the leading disaster-prone states in the country. Still, it is not a reason to be complacent as damaged out-of-state cars can still arrive in the state and be sold to unsuspecting buyers.
