Personal Number Plates - A Solid Investment!
Over recent years personal number plates have proven to be a solid investment achieving growth of in excess of 10 per cent in most cases.
Even during 2008, when the financial markets were in turmoil and the goverments in both the UK & US were charging to the rescue of banks, bailing them out at astromonical costs to the tax payer. Cherished number plates in the UK continue to achieve good growth.
The record for the most paid for a personal number plate at auction was broken when F1 sold for £440,000 in January 08. In September of the thst year S1 was sold at the Goodwood revival sale by auctioneer Bonhams for an amazing £397,000 and in the same month at the DVLA auction in Cambridgeshire 6 B achieved over £100,000.
When money in the bank is no longer percieved as being as safe as it was many investors are looking to alternatives to traditional methods. Personal number plates remain a very attractive proposition achieving good yields.
