What you need to know about VIN etching

What is VIN etching?

VIN etching is permanently engraving the vehicle identification number (VIN) of your vehicle on the windshield and windows. VIN etching offers protection against auto theft and is one of the most effective ways of discouraging thieves from stealing your vehicle. VIN etching deters thieves because vehicles that have VIN etching are difficult for thieves to dispose of or sell.

What is the process?

The process is simple. It involves developing a stencil of your VIN number, then engraving the number onto the windows of your vehicle.

Other advantages

Many insurance agencies may offer a discount or waive insurance deductibles for vehicles that have VIN etching.
