Spinning Plates: Euro Car Parts launches number plate service

20 April 2017

A brand new service launched by Euro Car Parts earlier this month is providing a reliable, efficient supply of number plates to independent workshops across the UK. The offering is one of a number of recent initiatives launched by the UK’s number one parts supplier for cars and LCVs to provide unparalleled support for Britain’s independent garage network.

The offering is available exclusively to trade customers of Euro Car Parts, who are registered with the DVLA as a Registered Number Plate Supplier (RNPS). Independent garages and bodyshops who sign up to the scheme can now order replacement number plates for their customers’ vehicles from their local Euro Car Parts branch. With a real focus on efficiency, orders are turned around from regional Euro Car Parts hubs, where the plates will be made and delivered to the customer via the ordering branch in protective packaging on the next scheduled delivery.  

Standard plate layouts for registrations from 1962 onwards are available. Euro Car Parts will also be offering a range of enhancement options, including a variety of badges displaying individual UK country flags and a choice of four different border colours. Registered trade customers will also be given the option to display their company name, or tag-line, in a variety of typefaces and colours.

Speaking of the offering, Bill Stimson, Marketing Director of Euro Car Parts, noted: “Damaged number plates are a guaranteed MOT failure, so it’s vital that independent garages are able to put this failure right as soon as possible. Euro Car Parts is able to offer a fast and effective solution, and one that can be personalised to suit the requirements of the motorist – and their car.”

Workshops wanting to sell Euro Car Parts number plates must be a Registered Number Plate Supplier. Joining is a one-off process costing £40.00 and applicants need to fill in a V940 form, either via online or in print, which should be completed and posted to the DVLA.
