Too many vehicles today have been victim of car thieves. One way to deter those robbers is to have your vehicle’s VIN number etched into the windows. This will provide more ways to identify your vehicle given those would-be robbers pause before they decide to pounce on your personal property.

Window etching is another way to place your VIN number on more parts of your vehicle making it harder for thieves to sell car parts since they are now marked with your vehicle’s identity. The process is quite simple and can be done in no time at all by professionals. Normally the cost would be around $200 if you took the vehicle to a car dealership, but now you can get this done for free.
