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. With ISO'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).

ISO’s Personal Auto Physical Damage Rating Symbols are codes that indicate the relative risk of loss for each private passenger vehicle series and each model year. Each Symbol has a corresponding Symbol relativity, or factor, that you can use to develop premiums for individual comprehensive and collision policies. Like all ISO products and services, Personal Auto Physical Damage Rating Symbols are advisory. You may use them without modification, modify them, or choose not to use them.

ISO’s Liability and PIP/Medical Payments (LPMP) Symbols are codes that indicate the relative risk of loss for each private passenger vehicle series. Each Symbol has a corresponding Symbol relativity, or factor, that you can use to develop premiums for liability and PIP/medical payment coverage. Unlike ISO’s Personal Auto Physical Damage Rating Symbols, LPMP Symbols are not specific to model year.

To calculate suitable premiums for automobile risks, you need complete and accurate information about the vehicles that your policyholders drive. But a policyholder who buys a used car may not know that it was previously junked, salvaged, or flooded. And policyholders may forget to disclose important information, such as lapses in registration or shared ownership of a vehicle.

Each search of the system displays a report that cross-references the related workers' compensation, general liability, NAICS, and SIC codes.
