Sign up for DRN’s free VIN test and get vehicle location sightings on 10 VINs

Many Buy Here Pay Here (BHPH) dealers would agree that the biggest challenge they face is vehicle recovery. While many are turning to GPS devices to help them recover these vehicles, the device is not as efficient because it’s opt-in and easily disabled. Same goes for starter interrupters.

Recently, more and more BHPH dealers are turning to vehicle location data as an alternative to GPS. Because vehicle location data is gathered from publicly available license plates, it does not require anyone to opt in, saving dealers time and the hassle of installing the devices. Vehicle location data is gathered from license plate recognition cameras, which capture the plate image, plus the date, time, and location of the sighting. DRN makes sense of these sightings with powerful analytics that can tell you the best location and time to find your asset. With billions of nationwide vehicle sightings and gathering 7 million more sightings daily, chances are we’ve seen your asset.

To prove that vehicle location data works, we are offering BHPH dealers a free VIN test for up to 10 VINs. Once you submit your VINs, we verify DPPA permissible use, and put our sightings to work looking for your VINs. Allow us two business days to conduct the search and send you your results. DRN will provide a report that shows the total number of sightings for each VIN.
