Search Guide - Private Plates for Business

Looking to get a plate for your business, but not sure where to start? We’ve put together a thorough guide, using our expertise to show you the various ways to find a personalised vehicle registration through Plates4Less. Our website offers the most comprehensive search tools in the industry.

Read below to learn more about why people choose number plates for business and the search tools associated with each reason.

1. Disguise the Age of your Vehicle/ Fleet

Most number plates have age identifiers, which will disclose the age of your vehicle to your customers. You can hide this with a low-cost “cover plate” from our cheap number plates page. These can be dateless, and are often available in a sequence for use on fleets. Nobody needs to know if your company vehicle is getting older - and this is a great low cost alternative to updating your well-serviced fleet.

2. Invest in Style

A private number plate can be an effective investment for your business. When bought wisely, they tend to either hold or increase in value and are ‘no-maintenance’ assets. Additionally, you can use the private plate whilst you wait for a buyer, and if you find an investment that aligns with your brand, you may even find that this is a useful tax-deductible marketing solution for your company vehicle branding.

Please see some quick links to results with great investment potential, scored by search frequency:

3. Word Search to match your brand, product or business type

If you have a particular plate or word in mind, our Smart Search System will work out how to transform it into a search. Just type in the name or word you’d like the plate to resemble and we’ll do the rest. Searching for Baker, for example, will get you better results than searching for B4K3R (which isn’t a legal registration).

4. Advanced Search for more personalised results

Once you’ve decided on the main subject of your plate (for example, your company initials) you will likely find that you have some spare characters. This is a further opportunity to make the plate more personalised to you or your business.

When you have more specific ideas for what to include on your number plate, you can use our advanced options where you’ll be able to refine your search.

Some business/ occupation ideas as plate fillers are H20, AMP, 747, BU55, BO55, LTD, 999, CPU, B16, XXL ….
