How to locate your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
A VIN is a combination of 16 digits and letters (like a serial number) for a vehicle and is used by us to identify the exact vehicle that you own, allowing us to make the most accurate offer for your vehicle. Here’s a few places that you can locate your VIN:
- On the windshield. Go to the driver side of your vehicle and look at the very bottom of the windshield (from the outside of the vehicle). There’s a small area that displays the VIN.
- Driver’s side door. Look at the door post (where the door latches when it is closed).
- Under the hood
- On the vehicle’s title
- The VIN should be located on the purchase contract (if you purchased the vehicle from a dealer and still have the paperwork)
- Your insurance card
- Your registration sticker & registration card
The VIN looks similar to this below:
