Questions? Here are a Few We Tend to Receive:

How can eImpound be free?

Unlike expensive tools out there, eImpound is a no-charge service. Naturally, we need to generate income to remain a successful business, and that funding comes from lenders, insurers and others who pay fees to monitor their VINs through our Locator Technologies LLC database.

Do you have every VIN in America?

Close. It’s difficult to gather them all, but eImpound has access to more than 85% of the lien holders in North America through its Locator Technologies lien database. We also search all 50 states' DMV databases for lien holders and registered owners through Accurint from Lexis Nexis.

How do I know eImpound was successful in finding the lien holder?

If a match is found in the database, eImpound sends you an e-receipt with the contact information for the lien holder AND sends the lien holder an electronic notification as well. If there is no initial match in the eimpound database within the next two business days eImpound will search other lien record databases.

Does the mobile app take a picture of the VIN and send it?

No, when you use the app with a mobile device, it scans the VIN bar code, and then sends that code to eImpound for retrieval of the lien data.
