How to Purchase Private Number Plates

by Alisha Perry A Blogger
In this technology-driven world, despite the mass production of cars, our relationship with them is quite personal. It has been observed that a lot of manufacturers offers customization when buying a new car. And when it comes to customization, the thing that strikes the doors of our mind is private number plates.

 
 
The best thing about these plates is that they are a relatively new concept. If your number plate either spelled out a name or a word, it’s quite lucky as number plates were created based on a car’s age. Apart from this, traders were having reputed success selling plates with relatively few characters, or ones that happened to spell out (or nearly spell out) names and phrases. 
 
Tips to Buy Private Number Plates 
 
Following are the tips to buy private number plates

 
1. Purchasing from the DVLA: If you want to buy a private number plate, then you make sure you get it done from DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency). This will help to avoid a middleman’s markup. There is no doubt that DVLA is an excellent tool that helps you browse a collection of plates that meet your search terms. The best thing about it is that it also has ‘prefix plates’ that consist of one letter followed by one or two numbers. 
 
2. Purchasing from the Broker: If you want to buy a personalized number plate,  there are several companies out there. If you can’t find the plate you’re after on the DVLA’s website, it is advisable to take the help from brokers. Number plates sold through brokers tend to be more expensive as compared to DVLA. 
 
3. Purchasing Individual Plates Privately: If you want to have a specific number plate you know exists, but can’t find it through a broker or the DVLA, then you can look out on classified adverts in car magazines and newspapers’ motoring supplements.
 
How much do Private Number plates cost
 
Talking about the price, these cherished number plates run from a couple of hundred pounds to a few thousand dollars. However, if you are buying from an auction, then the price can be whatever which is something willing to pay. On the contrary, plates sold through brokers and advertisements can even go to five or six-figure sums. 
 
Always keep this in mind, the fewer characters a private number plate has, the more expensive it will be. Likewise, the higher the demand, the higher the price will be. It has been observed that number plates that resemble more popular names seem to be more expensive.
