Trade Plating?

What is trade plating? I have been asked this several times recently, so I thought I’d put up an article. In simple terms trade plating refers to vehicle collection and delivery; drivers will use Trade Plates during the course of their work. Trade Plating is a name derived from Trade Plates, you know, the red and white registration plates you sometimes see. Trade Plating itself s the ancient ‘art’ of getting around the country using your Trade Plates. While it’s not so common these days, in years gone by Trade Platers would use their Trade Plates to hitch hike from one place to another as a fast, cheap way of getting around. I hope this goes some way to anserwing the question, please feel free to post comments, questions etc
