VIN Etching which is also known as VIN etch or window
etching or glass etching, is the permanent etching of the federally registered
vehicle identification number (VIN) into all the major glass areas of a vehicle
(also know as a car truck Sport Utility Vehicle or a van ). Once your vehicle is
protected by VIN etch it is protected against VIN switching which is known as
identity theft for cars.
Cars trucks Sport Utility Vehicles and vans are stolen by professional thieves for either resale or for parts. VIN Etching (also known as VINetch or VINetching) effectively deters the theft of a vehicle for resale because it is very costly to alter its VIN because all of the vehicles window glass must be replaced. In addition the buyers of stolen vehicles will not risk getting caught with VIN etch etched cars or trucks because the VIN etched window glass can become physical evidence in court linking them to the original crime. Theft of a vehicle with VIN etching by a chop shop for parts is also deterred because the thief would not want all of your vehicles glass around the chop shop with the VIN etched evidence on it. Most people do not even notice the VIN etch on the windows but police and the thieves know right where to look. Thieves simply move onto a vehicle which has not been protected with VIN Etching.
There is no doubt that VIN etching (VINetching or VINetch) really does deter auto theft. VIN etching is recommended by law enforcement agencies and insurance companies throughout the United States as an effective auto theft deterrent.
