Bidding Starts 1 April For Special RIMAU 1 To 9999 Number Plates
No, its not an April's Fool joke. Malaysians looking for unique plates will be able to bid for RIMAU 1 to RIMAU 9999 starting tomorrow, 1 April.
In conjunction with Malaysia hosting the 2017 SEA Games for the ASEAN region this year, these SEA Games commemorative number plates are being released by the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) via the Road Transport Department (JPJ).
According to the “RIMAU PLAT” Facebook page set up earlier last month to promote the special plate series, RIMAU which is a short form of the games’ Malayan Tiger mascot stands for Respect, Integrity, Move, Attitude and Unity.
Yesterday, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin launched the number plate bidding which he announced that the revenue will go towards the cost of hosting the SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games which would take place in August and September respectively.
"All bids will take place through the online bidding e-bid system with the proceeds going towards the cost of hosting KL2017.
"We hope to get as much as possible from the bidding process because not only the number plates are a memento to the people but also the proceeds can be used for financing the organising cost," he told reporters at the launch, Bernama reports.
Remember that, despite valuations and estimates, a private number plate is only worth as much as someone will pay for it. You may have loved your personalised number plate because it contains your initials, for example, but if there aren’t many other people with your initials, the plate’s value may be minimal. On the other hand, if you have a plate whose letters contain common or popular names, you may well find that it is in high demand on the market.
Some criteria to consider when valuing a personalised car number plate
Take into account the following criteria when trying to come up with a valuation for your private number plate. You need to look at them all together if you want a realistic price, so you can’t just pick and choose the factors that favour your number plate!
