Classified Website Shakes Up Personal Number Plate Market


London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/29/2014 -- An innovative classified website is shaking up the private number plate market by offering buyers and sellers the opportunity to cut out the middle man and trade directly with each other. Established in 2009, the Plate Trader website has recently undergone a revamp which makes conducting private number plate transactions quicker, easier and more cost effective than ever before.

Karl Moss, Founder said, “We’re incredibly excited to launch the new look website. After five years in business, we decided it was time to upgrade the site and ensure that our customer experience is as easy and enjoyable as possible.”

While most number plate websites are run by private dealers who generally claim up to 30% commission from each sale, Plate Trader cut third party expenses and ensure all savings and profits stay in the pockets of its buyers and sellers. The service is effortlessly easy with sellers simply listing their plate on the site alongside their contact details. Buyers can then browse the listings and contact the sellers directly, meaning no middlemen, no commission fees and no fuss!

The site is essentially the Auto Trader of the number plate dealing industry and fills a gap in the market for an online marketplace where buyers and sellers aren’t forced to sacrifice slices of their revenue or face extra sales fees upon purchase.

Moss added, “For many years people have been buying and selling cars privately using sites like Auto Trader and Pistonheads, but there were very few options available when it came to number plates. We knew there had to be a better way than commission heavy dealers and fee ridden eBay listings, and so the site was launched!”

Since its launch in 2009, the site has become hugely popular amongst British motorists looking for a simple and effective way of buying and selling plates and getting the vehicle registration marks that they desire. Plate Trader now boasts thousands of site visitors each month, including corporate organisations and celebrities.

As well as cutting out middleman fees, other fantastic Plate Trader perks include first page status on Google and other search engines, a unique advert URL and promotion to over 10,000 of it's social media followers.

With advert pricing plans starting at just £4.95 per month and no hidden fees, Plate Trader is an affordable option for number plate buyers and sellers across the nation.
