HVFCU Insurance Agency is once again partnering with Safelite AutoGlass to offer members free VIN etching at our Arlington, Montgomery, and Wappingers Falls branches.

VIN etching is a powerful theft deterrent that takes only minutes to perform, but can save you thousands of dollars. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, “Etching the vehicle identification number onto the window of the car discourages thieves from taking the vehicle.”

What is VIN etching?

The car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) is acid-etched into the corner of the glass on your vehicle. A thief can’t alter the number in any way due to the unique installation process.

Is the VIN etching process safe?

Trained auto glass professionals perform the VIN etching by applying a mild acid gel to the windshield and windows. While the gel requires care during the application process, it is safe when dry on vehicle windows.

Reservations are required, and you can register using our online form.

Please note, VIN Etching events are weather dependent. In the event of inclement weather, all registrants will be contacted and their appointments will be rescheduled.
