How much is my number plate worth?
Private number plates can be valued at hundreds, even thousands of pounds! The price is based on different aspects and just one digit or letter can make a huge difference. Here are some of the most important factors that influence the value of your number plate:
- Length - The shorter, the better. Fewer digits are always more valuable. For example, DAN 1 will be priced higher than DAN 456.
- Age - Personalised plates that have been owned for a long time make them rare, and in turn, more valuable.
- Popularity - If the name or phrase on your private number plate is particularly popular, it will sell for more because it is in high demand.
Style - A number of styles have been issued since number plates became mandatory fixtures for cars. The rarer the style, the more valuable the plate. Styles of plates include:
- Word Number Plates - When sought-after words are spelt out using a combination of numbers and letters. For example; M4 RIE or L4 MBO.
As a rule of thumb, the rarer your number plate is, the more you can sell it for. Enter your details above and our valuation experts will provide a free price estimate via email.
