VINMASTER | The ISO Symbol without the VIN

Determining the proper premiums for personal auto policies can be tricky business, especially for collision and comprehensive coverages. But it doesn't have to be.

Vinmaster Decode

With Verisk’s VINMASTER® and your software, you can quickly and easily identify an automobile's current ISO Vehicle Series Rating Symbol without knowing its vehicle identification number (VIN). With the current Symbol, you can more accurately determine premiums for physical damage (comprehensive and collision) coverages.

All you need to know is the vehicle's model and a few key features. That's because VINMASTER contains indexes both by VIN and by comprehensive vehicle descriptions, including make, model, engine, and body style. VINMASTER is a data file that lists foreign and domestic private passenger autos beginning with model year 2008.* The ease of locating a correct Symbol by either the VIN or the vehicle description makes VINMASTER a powerful tool, whether you're quoting a rate or renewing a policy.

In addition to the Vehicle Series Rating Symbol, you'll get information on the vehicle's restraint type and the availability of antilock brakes and daytime running lamps.

*Supplemental files for model years 1975-1979, 1980-1984, 1985-1989, 1990-1994, 1995-1999, 2000-2004, and 2005-2007 and for 1985-1991 light trucks are also available for a one-time fee.


VINMASTER is available by e-mail or on CD-ROM or 3480 cartridge.
