When choosing a birthday present for your partner there are hundreds of ideas such as socks, ties etc, however you may well decide to really push the boat out and go for something much more exclusive. We take a look at how a private plate could be the perfect present for your partner, especially if he is a ‘petrol head.
What will the private plates say?
This will be a unique present and as such it is hugely important that you carefully consider what it will actually say. It must have some recognisable meaning to him/her, or even to you both as a couple. The best and by far most popular option is to combine a name and number, or alternatively you could choose the year you met or some other anniversary and add this to his/her abbreviated name or initials.
Purchasing the private plates
Once you have decided what the private plates will say, you have to start looking around for something which fits the bill. There are many online dealers from which to choose such as uknumberplates.co.uk who boast a comprehensive selection of combinations. If you are unable to find the number plate you require from their extensive list, then you can contact them and ask if they can locate it for you.
Dealers such as uknumberplates.co.uk tend to offer a wide range of private number plates and as such, you will stand a good chance of finding what you are looking for.
Once you have chosen your number plate, you then need to place an order. Contact the dealer and make an offer on the number plate you require, then they will notify you as to whether you have been successful. Remember that buying a personalised number plate needn’t be an expensive business, there are many bargains out there.
Why a private plate is the perfect present
Socks, ties and choccies are so last year! The way forward is exclusivity and there is nothing more unique and exclusive than a personalised number plate. It is extremely personal and also relatively inexpensive if you’re not seeking something too specific. Not only that but private plates are transferrable and can be moved from one car to another with ease – therefore your partner can use the particular plate on every single car he will own.
What to do next
When you have bought the number plate, you will receive a V75 certificate and you will then need to mention that the number plate will be on a car registered to someone else. Once this has all gone through and you have paid the relevant fees, you can order the actual plates and put them on your partners car, ready for him/her to see!
