Jayne Henry July 3, 2016 Cherished Number Plates, Personalised Number Plates, Recent Number Plate News Our Irish number plates are incredibly popular. If you’re not familiar with Irish plates then you may be a little perplexed by this. Why would a plate from Ireland be so sought after? Well there’s no one reason, it’s the fact that they have a range of benefits over standard UK plates that makes them such big sellers. Here are some of the top reasons why people choose our Irish plates… They are very cheap One of the key selling points of Irish plates is simply that they are incredibly good value. When you buy an Irish plate from us, you can pick one up for as little as £40. We have literally thousands of plates at really low prices, you’re very likely to find your perfect plate for under £100. They are good value for money Compared to standard UK plates, you get a lot more for your money. Irish plates tend to be shorter, but you’re not paying a premium for that short stylish look as you would with a standard UK plate. All Irish plates are dateless All plates from Northern Ireland are dateless, so use one of these plates and no one will know how old your vehicle is. Combine this with the bargain prices and it’s a very cost-effective way of disguising the age of your van or car. Because they are all dateless, it also means you can have the pick of all the Irish plates. It makes searching easier. It’s illegal to display a plate that makes your car look younger than it actually is, which can be frustrating when you’re searching for a plate. You find a plate you love, only to find you’re not actually allowed to have it on your current vehicle as it’s too old. When you search through our extensive selection of Irish plates you can have any you want without having to take the age of your vehicle into consideration. They have the Wow Factor Even though Irish plates are cheap, they really stand out from the crowd. That’s what most people want, a plate that makes people look twice. The Irish number plate system is very different to that of the rest of the UK and so the plates instantly look different. They are generally shorter, and there are some combinations you won’t find elsewhere such as plates with the letter I in them such as GIL, HIL, JIL or MIL.
