How to buy a number plate via Smashing Plates? It's very simple- Smashing Plates isn't a number plate dealer - its number plate classifieds- so much in the same way you purchase a car privately- so too can you purchase number plates privately.
Find the plate you like
Using keyword searching and the other great features that Smashing Plates has to offer; finding your ideal number plate is not as difficult as you may think.
And if you can't find what you're looking for? Place a wanted advert and reach thousands of daily visitors- let the seller come to you!
Contact the seller
Once you have found the plate you want- you can either call or email the seller directly as their details are displayed on the Smashing Plates website.
If you'd prefer to not give your contact details to the seller just yet, you can email them directly via the Smashing Plates website for added security.
Negotiate the price
With first contact made, you need to set your budget in your mind and decide the figure which you are willing to pay for the plate.
Remember that largely the number plate market is a buyers market. With so many millions of combinations available you can afford to pick and choose the best combination- no deal is a must do deal!
But you have to remember that time is a factor- and the combination(s) you seek may not be available for sale again in some time.
Strike this balance and offer the seller what you deem reasonable- but be prepared to negotiate.
