We have Thousands of real, genuine, authentic collectible and vintage license plates, license plates pairs, recent graphic license plates, old license plates, and hard to find varieties. We have car, truck, motorcycle, moped, trailer, recreational vehicle, dealer, in-transit, semi, municipal, official, and other varieties. We have license plates for year of manufacture (Y.O.M. or YOM) applications too. Of course, vintage license plates are to be found as well as a lot of varieties of specialty license plate types, from boat trailer, logging truck, school bus, fleet vehicle, antique, veteran, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, firefighter, pioneer, environmental, vanity, metro, depot, and others. Our website slogan is “great plates, prices and service”.
We have a reputation for issuing refunds if someone overpays for shipping. At shoplicenseplates.com, we do not charge for “handling”. Many other sites and sellers tend to slip these into their shipping rates. So many times, and especially on auction web sites, sellers will advertise a low price to generate bids. If you read the fine print carefully, you then discover that they have made up for this by overcharging for “handling”. Over the years, many customers have been surprised when I have contacted them to let them know we were issuing a refund for overpayment of shipping because we charge actual shipping. We will continue to charge actual shipping and issue refunds in cases of over payment.
This site will be a no-frills, no nonsense license collector and hobbyist license plate web site, where what you see is what you get. Hailing from St Louis, the slogan of the State of Missouri is the “Show-Me State”. This site embraces this concept, with no hyped-up sales pitches (how many times have you seen someone increase their prices, then offer it on “sale”). What you will find is low prices with high quality, hard to find, collectible license plates. Not to mention the actual shipping as noted above.
From time to time, we may have a sale on overstocked items or on special occasions. If we place an item or items on sale, this will mean that it is being discounted from the normal, already low price. We are amazed at some of the high prices being charged out there – our goal is to help keep license plate collecting affordable and exciting.
One point that we want to bring to your attention is that you can save a lot of money by purchasing multiple items. Example: in the U.S., we can fit up to 4 license plates (2 pairs, 4 singles, or a combination) in a flat rate envelope for $6.95 USD. So if you buy one plate, you may want to consider filling the envelope with 3 more. Another example: in the U.S., if you buy 5 to 50 plates, the price for the flat rate box is $13.60 USD. So, if you have 25 items, you may want to consider adding more to fill your box. The shipping is already covered. You’re only paying for the license plates !
