Selling Private Plates
Search for a plate
Car Marks are one of the few cash buyers in the industry, as well as being successful brokers in selling registrations on behalf of others. With a substantial advertising budget and a very extensive client database we are able to give your number maximum exposure at no cost to you.
Over forty years of experience means that the valuations we provide are realistic - unlike some companies who overvalue your personalised number plate to attract your business and then come back offering you considerably less. It is a very competitive and transparent market and cherished registrations have to be priced realistically to sell.
We will advertise your registration Free of Charge, adding a small margin on top of the returnable figure. The figure we quote you relates to cleared funds, no deductions for advertising or admin. On finding a purchaser we shall prepare the application and submit it for transfer. If the number is currently held on a vehicle it must hold a current tax disc and MOT certificate (or these must have expired within the last 12 months).
Your vehicle will automatically be issued with an age-related plate, and a new tax disc bearing the re-allocated number will be supplied with the same expiry date as the previous one. Any MOT certificate will be officially amended by the Licensing Office and with the V5 Registration Certificate following within 4 – 6 weeks of the completion of the transfer.
If the registration number is held on a V778 Retention Document or V750 Certificate of Entitlement, it would need a change of nominee details on the document, which is done via the DVLA. Upon receipt of the amended certificate the transaction will be finalised.
You have the right to cancel this agreement at any time providing we have not already sold the registration. You must inform us in writing if the vehicle is scrapped or the number is no longer available before we have found a buyer. If you dispose of the vehicle or registration number, or if you wish us to withdraw the number from sale, you must notify us in writing (please keep proof of postage) before we have found a buyer. If we find a buyer prior to your cancellation, we shall expect to receive the documents within 5 working days. Failure to inform us your registration is no longer available will result in charges for our services for lost commission in the sum of £100 plus vat. Your registration mark will be advertised until we are advised otherwise.
