Nationla Numbers are offering a free online DVLA auction bidding service to those wishing to purchase personalised number plates online through the DVLA’s online auction service. The online service complements our well-established offline auction service; both aim to make using the DVLA‘s auction services easier.
Buying number plates at auction can often be a daunting task and requires time and dedication to observe and react as bidding unfolds. Nationla Numbers like to take the hassle out of buying number plates. At our offline auction service, we bid on registrations for customers. Our online service works in exactly the same way – we will purchase the registration on your behalf, while you relax and put your feet up!
This new service is the first of its kind to be offered to number plate buyers. Nationla Numbers Chairman, Eric Craggs, says:
“This excellent online auction service gives our number plate customers the same fantastic opportunities as offline auction buyers. Tell us what plate you are interested in and let us do the legwork for you – don’t miss out on this opportunity to buy your perfect registration at auction.”
DVLA’s online auction service allows buyers to bid on number plates in a similar way to the popular auction web site eBay.
Number plates are given a Reserve Price which is where the bidding starts. From there, a bidder submits their Maximum Bid, which cannot be seen by other bidders. The value of the Current Bid can be seen with the registration at all times throughout the auction process.
Proxy bidding allows competitive bidding on Lots, where the system increases bids on behalf of the bidder up to the value of their Maximum Bid. Users receive notification that they have been outbid so that they can increase their bid. However bids cannot be removed from the system once they have been placed.
One of the most interesting features of the service is that, for popular lots, the end time of the bidding is allowed to “slide”, meaning that the bid time is extended where there is lots of competition to bid on a plate.
