About Plate-Trader

Hello and welcome to Plate-Trader.com. We're different to other number plate sites. We believe that buying or selling a private plate should be as simple as buying or selling a car and that buyers & sellers should be able to deal with each other directly, without middlemen taking a percentage of the sale price.

We're proud to say that we're a family run business and we launched in 2009. Since then, we've been changing the way people buy and sell private number plates forever.

The idea for the site came about after we saw a gap in the market for an online marketplace to buy and sell number plates privately. For many years people have been buying and selling cars privately using classifieds sites but there were very few options available when it came to number plates. The main options were either number plate dealers or eBay. The problem with dealers is that they advertise your plate on your behalf, then take a 'commission' of approximately 30% of the sale price. The problem with eBay is that they charge 10% of the sale price in fees! We believed that there had to be a better way, and so the site was launched!

Since our launch, we have been immensely popular, so popular infact that we're now visited by thousands of people every week and are trusted by over 5000 people, including leading companies and celebrities! Our service is simple, sellers of number plates simply list their plates and they are immediately displayed on our site along with their contact details. Buyers then contact the sellers directly meaning there's no middlemen, no commission and no fuss!

We've also become the go-to place for people wanting to find out how much their number plate if worth as we offer honest, independent number plate valuations.

But anyway, that's enough about us - let's talk about you. Whether you want to buy a number plate, or to sell your private plate, you need a number plate classifieds website that will allow you to deal with the other party directly rather than acting as a middleman and taking a huge cut from the deal!

For any further information about the company or any press or media enquiries, please feel free to contact us.

We've been used and trusted by thousands, including leading companies and celebrities...
