Since 2000, there have been over 639,000 federally recordable, tow-away accidents for class 3-8 trucks (for valid VINs) reported in RigDig. Of these accidents, over 23,000 resulted in a fatality.

VIN Cloning is a growing crime, where criminals take the vehicle identification number (VIN) from a wrecked vehicle while it is sitting in a junkyard, then create new VIN plates for a stolen vehicle of the same make, model, year and color. RigDig can protect you from purchasing a VIN cloned vehicle.

In April of 2013, 3.7% of the RigDig Reports run by users were for trucks that were flagged as either Junk, Salvage or had a serious Salvage Title.
