How do I add my VIN to my ad?

If your ad package includes a vehicle history report, you may have received an email asking for you to add your car's VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). This information is required for us to generate the report specific to your vehicle. 

Your VIN can be found on your car’s build plate in the engine bay, on the passenger side windshield or in the door jamb. If you can't find it on the vehicle itself, it can also be found on your registration and car insurance documentation.
