Where to advertise number plates
Number plate dealers are a good place to start- list with as many of them as possible for free- but beware that the asking price for your number plate will differ from dealer to dealer as each dealer will add a different commission to the deal.
Advertising with a number plate listings website such as Smashing Plates will give you control over things- if you sell your plate in this manner you will conduct the transfer and do the deal- ultimately selling the plate directly to the buyer means you should get more for your number plate.
Once you've found a buyer you need to agree on the price; remember to hold strong and hopefully you will already have a buffer in the asking price for your number plate to allow for any deals.
To get an idea of your plate's asking price- why not get a number plate valuation.
Once you have settled on a price its time to complete the transaction. With the money safely received in the form of a bank transfer or bankers draft- you need to transfer the number plate.
With the transfer complete the number plate is no longer your property and the sale has concluded.
If you have transferred a number plate from your vehicle and the registration number on your vehicle is now different- you must tell your insurance company.
