NICB Warns of Barry-Flooded Cars

By Staff Writer July 24, 2019

Another hurricane, another warning about flood cars.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) is warning consumers that vehicles flooded by Tropical Storm Barry may soon be appearing for sale around the nation. 

After a disaster, NICB works with its member companies, law enforcement, and auto auction companies to identify the vehicles that have had an insurance claim filed. Most of the vehicles are sold to parts companies who will dismantle them and re-sell usable parts that were not damaged by the flooding.

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of vehicles that have been damaged by Barry will be searchable through NICB's free VINCheck service as well as the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) database.
