If sending a deposit at the time of request, personal checks, company checks or money orders are acceptable. Do NOT send cash.

The cost of the information is $0.01 per vehicle, boat/vessel. If the cost of the run is less than the deposit, the information will be shipped to you and a refund of any unused money will be mailed back separately. If the cost of the run is more than the deposit, you will be notified by phone of the balance due.

Payment in full is required prior to the release of the information. A $4.50 shipping and handling fee is added to the balance due. For shipping by overnight service, you must supply a completed airbill that charges the cost of the shipping back to your account.
