Are Personalised Number Plates a Good Investment?

A survey published by the Daily Telegraph in 2003 reported between 10% and 20% appreciation in value for personalised number plates within the UK.

With this in mind it is fair to say that providing you select your personalised registration carefully there will be a healthy return should you wish to sell the registration at a future point in time.

The advice we would offer in this instance is to always set your budget realistically and to consider all the alternative personalised registrations available within this budget. Your choice of format will influence price and always remember that there are usually several ways of achieving the desired result.

We believe dateless numbers and name related registrations provide a very good investment for the future although we always recommend talking to a spacialist with the relevant experience and expertise

Intrinsic Value and Number Plate Rarety are Directly Related

The rarety of a personalised number plate will determine its value to a large extent although other factors play a part. Remember exclusivity relates directly to desireability and to value within the market.

If you are unsure about the value of a registration then ask the experts by requesting a number plate valuation. This will remove any uncertainty before you make your investment decision.

Personalised number plates are by definition a personalised item but in many cases the personalisation will apply to other people. The popularity of the association with others will always be a factor in determining future values and we would recommend you consider this when selecting your personal number plate.

The History of Personalised Number Plates

If a registration number has exclusive history then this will add to the value - particularly if the number has been owned by someone famous or if the number has previously been assigned to a famous vehicle. An example of this would be PAT 1 where this registration is recognised for its association with Postman Pat a television series in the 1980's.
