New Car Registrations For 2017 Keep Us Busy 

Many motorists are holding off buying right now, in anticipation of the new car registrations for 2017, which have just been released on March 1st!

September 1st 2016 saw the last release, featuring number 66 plates, which showed a car was registered between the start of September and the end of February 2017.

And now the new number 17 plates are here! (For those that don’t know, the age identifier number is changed every six months in March and September).

Wolverhampton Handling has long been working in conjunction with the motoring sector. We have conveyors working in both lineside storage and handling, as well as logistics with BMW Mini/Honda/Nissan/Jaguar and LandRover.

If you’re looking to buy a car at any stage, it helps to understand the current number plate system, which came into being in 2001.

Here’s how it works:

2001/02: 01/51


2003/04: 03/53

2004/05: 04/54

2005/06: 05/55

2006/07: 06/56
2007/08: 07/57

So now you know what you’re buying next time you enter the second-hand car market. And if you’re up for a new vehicle – then we’re happy to have played a small part in getting it to market for you.
