How much is my number plate worth?

The best way to find out is to request a FREE no obligation valuation, right here on our website.

Do you buy number plates?

Yes sometimes, but it depends on the plate. We will provide an outright purchase value if the number suits our ‘stock’ requirements at the time.

Do you take offers?

Yes, sensible offers are always welcome. Accepted offers usually fall within 10% of the asking price. (Offers tend not to be considered on number plates priced under £400, although we do offer Klarna ‘Pay in 3’ on those amongst our ‘Cherished Plates’ results)

What other costs are involved?

On all numbers an £80 DVLA transfer fee applies. On Government stock and company owned registrations, VAT is also applicable. The complete CarReg Transfer service (£25) and physical acrylic number plates (£22) are optional and can be added at checkout.
