Trailer number plates for your domestic or commercial trailers…
Whether you use your trailer to transport your bikes, pack up for a camping trip or to take your hardware to your next job, you don’t want to get any unwanted hassle for not displaying the correct plates. Trailer number plates must display the registration of the vehicle that is towing it, with a legal registration plate, definitely not a hand written one that you often see! If you have multiple vehicles that you use, you can purchase more than one trailer number plate and swap them when needed.
We have a huge range of number plates to choose from. From acrylic to pressed aluminium, we can cater for any of the requirements that you have. Our lipped range make for the perfect trailer number plates if you use your trailer for business purposes. The added area at the bottom of the number plate makes it easy for you to legally place your business name, logo, number or any other details on your plate.
What are the laws regarding trailer number plates?
It’s important to know that if you have a commercial trailer that weighs more than 750kg, or a domestic one that weighs over 3,500kg then you must adhere to certain rules when you travel abroad. This means that you may need to register your trailer, and need to purchase a second number plate for it, that will be assigned to the trailer itself. This will be enforced from 28/3/2019. This could be another opportunity to get some all important business information on a second trailer number plate.
We know that sending your documents into us is not ideal, but is essential for you to be received legal number plates. If you were to purchase your trailer number plates from a supplier that does not ask for these documents, then they will have been sold to you legally and are very unlikely to have been manufacture to British Standards (BS AU 145d).
