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.
When you are getting a valuation for your private registration number, think about the fact that certain types of number plate match will lead to much higher worth. These include plates that represent names, initials, models or makes of cars, or words.
The rarity and desirability of any combination of letters and numbers on a registration plate will essentially determine its value on the market. Bear in mind that there is only one version of every number plate in existence, so each is basically rare because it’s unique. But its value requires more than that exclusivity, it must also be worth something to somebody else. People will pay more for a good representation of their name than they will for an average representation of their initials, for instance, so how well a number plate depicts the word, interest, name or initials in question can add or subtract £hundreds or even more from its price tag.
