The Advance Professional VIN Scanner simplifies your workday, quickly and easily allowing you to capture and decode a vehicle's information by scanning its VIN barcode.

Advance Professional customers can now scan and upload VIN information from a vehicle barcode (windshield or door mounted) and send it directly into their secure Advance Professional online account. The decoded VIN information will appear on their account's "Previous Vehicles" list and be available to use for parts look-up.

After scanning a vehicle’s VIN barcode, the Advance Professional VIN Scanner makes it easy to:

- Capture a vehicle's detailed description, including year, make, model and engine
- Upload the scanned data into your Advance Professional online account
- Store the most recent vehicles scanned within the app itself
- Get fast, one-click access to your assigned Commercial Parts Pro

To upload scanned vehicles to your Advance Professional online account, you must be an active commercial customer. Contact your nearest Advance Auto Parts store or visit for information on starting a commercial customer account or obtaining your online credentials.

Only one small issue


I use it only for vin scanning b/c our commercial account isn’t set up for online ordering..One thing I’d like to see added is a rotation lock. On some cars (most recently a ‘07 Explorer) the barcode sticker is vertical on the door but the barcode runs horizontal so it’s tricky to get it scanned before the app rotates. Other than that I’ve had 0 problems

Works so far

Walked out to the garage and scanned both of my vehicles. It worked perfectly for both. Will try it on more vehicles as time goes on.



Now if only I could order parts straight from the app. I order A LOT online from advance but with the app I only have the option to call.
