National Theft Search & Recovery is committed to assisting vehicle owners through the complexities of searching and locating their vehicles if they were to go missing or be stolen. While assisting law enforcement with additional ways of searching, locating, identifying and recovering vehicles when they are deemed as stolen.

When registered for our services, we will make an attempt to reach the registrant / account holder yearly with the intent to 1st keep the account updated and 2nd to offer renewal for any services that are set to expire. If information on the account needs to be updated (ie. vehicle, address, phone #, etc.), contact our customer service department. You may also make the changes on your own by hovering over the “CONTACT” button in the yellow header bar located above with your cursor. Click the “ACCOUNT STATUS/UPDATE” button and log in.

NTSR is confident in the timely recovery of your registered vehicles if stolen. For prequalified accounts we are now offering to add a guarantee of recovery which is identified as our Buy Back Policy. If the guarantee is added to your account with a registration or renewal of services.


If NTSR can’t assist with and/or confirm recovery of the Primary or Household decaled vehicle listed on your account within 24 hours from the NTSR confirmed active report time and the missing vehicle is deemed as “stolen” by law enforcement; or the vehicle is recovered in the 24-hour time frame and there are damages that exceed the initial registration cost. We will send the account holder a payment in the amount of the initially waived registration for service discount cost. Which is to be used toward the vehicle damage repair or for whatever the account holder sees fit, (additional restrictions and requirements apply; review suggestion below).

Suggestion: If Buy Back is added to terms of account after renewal - Following your account renewal, please remove one of our previously placed NTSR paint etching decals and keep it in a safe place, (keep with your account paperwork; outside of registered vehicle). The reason for doing so is in the case your vehicle is stolen and isn’t returned in the allotted time frame of 24 hours. We will continue to search; but it is required to send us at least one previously allocated decal for us to “buy back” and reimburse the account holder. This also will be required if we are reimbursing you for any damages cause by the theft.
