Is my plate valuable?

Over the decades, the market to trade in private number plates has grown into a multi-million pound business. A private plate used to be the mark of the super rich or royalty but times have changed. The DVLA started selling personalised registrations in 1989 via DVLA number plate auctions and 30 years on, over 6 million registrations have been sold.

Shorter plates - these are usually older too - are rare and when they do come up for sale, can cost hundreds of thousands, even millions of pounds. However, every private plate has a value. That’s because the combination of letters and numbers always has significance to someone and you may have the plate that someone has been searching for. That’s where our number plate valuations service comes in.

Five simple steps to number plate valuations

  1. Fill in the form

    You fill in the number plate valuation form with your private registration, along with a few contact details. Please bear in mind you have to own the registration to request a number plate valuation.
  2. Wait 48 hours

    We will contact you with a number plate valuation within 48 hours. How do we do it? Well, our team has over 25 years experience in buying and selling private registrations. They know what will sell and how to get the very best price, acting on your behalf. Our market research tells us what else is available and so we can benchmark your plate at the right level.
  3. Your plate is added (POA) to our site

    When you request a valuation, your registration is added to our website and marked Price On Application. This is so it starts attracting interest for you, even before we have confirmed the valuation. If someone is looking for that registration, you are already in a strong position to sell. Don’t worry, you’re under no obligation to sell your private plate at this stage.
  4. You decide if you want to sell

    We give you the valuation and then it’s up to you - do you want to sell? If you do, we will handle the sale for you. We add a small commission but that is on top of your asking price so the full valuation fee will come to you.
  5. A hassle free sale

    We are one of the few companies who offers to buy number plates for stock if they meet our criteria. This means a really quick sale for you - why not see if your private plate meets our criteria?
