A plates value is determined by the price someones going to pay for it, not a valuation from a number plate company.

I bought a very interesting RIB number plate that I was going to use (much better than RIB****). I never did use it but when the time came to sell I found it much more difficult to shift than I thought.

Be prepared to wait a long time to sell them at the prices you're advertising them for.

I hope you get what you want for them.

Dont get it! A price of around 500 would have put money straight in the sellers pocket, whereas now very unlikely to sell. But at least has the satisfaction of owning a plate worth 999 (not) .......

If you really want a RIB plate, check out R18 ... combinations, then you can have it combined with your initials or company

Is that not the same for anything you sell?

Of course it is! But was making a point to those that had said their plates were worth the valuation that had been placed on them by that number plate company.

He hasn't logged in since last year but doesn't have to I guess.

Shouldn't be too hard on the poor bloke, he hasn't had it easy recently
