How To Dispose Old UK Number Plates

Did you know that number plates on cars, motorbikes and other vehicles in the UK are one of the most lucrative items that you can recycle from a vehicle before it gets ditched?

Numerous people think that number plates only have any worth to somebody else if they are short and carry a name or someone’s initials, which is absolutely not the case.

Recent information released by the DVLAs auction admin staff has confirmed that in recent months the most appealing and sought-after number plates are those that spell words and company names, and many of these were distributed as standard plates over the years of the DVLC and DVLA registering new vehicles onto the roads.

So make sure that you take a good hard look at your number plate before you take it to recycling or a scrap merchant, to really see if you have a hidden gem. There may be some words that mean absolutely nothing to you which mean the world to someone else. So if you do think that you have a winner it’s easy to have it transferred, make sure you contact your local recycling authority and let them talk you through the process whether you dispose of it, or sell it on.

It’s recommended that if you do go about disposing of it by any other means than taking it to your local recycling centre, then chop up the plate first, so nobody else can get a hold of it, in a similar fashion to what you’d do with your old credit cards.
