As Hurricane Harvey continues its path through Texas and Louisiana, it is anticipated that there will be more than 500,000 flooded vehicles and trucks that will have some form of insurance claim filed by the owners.  Many companies have a “Destroy Only” philosophy when it comes to flood vehicles, however the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) estimates that as much as half of the flood vehicles will be sold for salvage.  Unfortunately, some states will allow a person to convert a Flood Title to a clear Title with little or no documentation of repairs. These vehicles then can be resold to unsuspecting consumers.


To combat this, the NICB has established a VIN Check system that allows a consumer to search the VIN of any vehicle or truck they wish to purchase through their theft and flood system.  You can go to to perform a free search. Please remember that any database, even the NICB’s is only as good as the information they receive. As such, if a company does not report to them as required by law, or if the vehicle is uninsured, the database will not have any useful information.  It is always a good idea to get a full history on any vehicle you buy.
