Notice:  Vehicles Damaged in Recent Flood Disasters

It was brought to our attention that vehicles damaged in the recent floods may be cleaned up and sold without disclosing they were in a flood. Some could be sold in our area.  Anyone concerned about this can visit www.nicb.org (Opens in a new Window)  to check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of a vehicle in question.  Once on the site, click on VIN check.  It will show if the vehicle has had a theft claim or total loss claim. Checking a VIN is free on this site, so please check first if you or someone you know plans to buy a vehicle from a private party or from a dealership you’re not familiar with.
