Where to sell private number plate

Hi, my mum no longer has a car and wants me to sell her private number plate but I have no idea where to start. I Googled it and approached a couple of companies but that just resorted in lots of spam emails. Just getting a valuation would be a start, does anyone know of any reputable companies? Thanks, Sam 


  • If you have the number on a retention certificate any of the major players you will find in a search will sell it on commission.

    Only if it is very rare will they offer to buy it for their stock.

    I sold my plate via https://www.regtransfers.co.uk 

    You will get an estimated valuation and be able to see the listed price on their website.

    There was a little bit of haggling involved once they had an offer, I held out for the amount I wanted.

    They do not tell you the actual selling price, just how much you receive after they take their cut.

    A lot will depend on just how distinctive the plate is.
