Private Number Plates Ideas

Aug 28, 2008
Buying personalised number plates is a personal decision reflecting a unique and individual aspect of the car owner's life. Personalised number plates can display people's names, words or numbers of significance to the owner.

Apart from being fun they make your car stand out from the rest, offering you an opportunity for self-expression and imagination in an otherwise fairly straight-laced part of life. Personalised number plates needn't cost the earth either. Many are available for as little as less than 100.

There are numerous themes adopted amongst personal number plate users. The car owner's name perhaps, their initials, a reference to a pet or their star sign, maybe a football team or player keenly supported, or perhaps an indication of the owner's profession.

Whether bought as a means of self-expression and identity or as a birthday, wedding or anniversary gift for a friend or member of the family, personalised car number plates are increasingly popular with people from all walks of life - a cost effective and fashionable means of defining one's individuality.

There are a vast number of plates out there from low cost budget options through to extremely rare and expensive registrations. To help give you some ideas of plates that might talk to you about your life, here are some ideas to help you on your way.

The most popular forms of personalised number plates are those that represent names and initials. Name number plates, especially first names, are the most desirable and therefore the most expensive of all number plates. Prices for good name number plates can be very high and relate to the popularity of the name, the match of the plate to the name and the plate style. Demand is particularly high for common first names, such as Chris, Simon, Dave and Sarah, which can sell for many thousands of pounds.

Initial plates might offer more affordable options. This is mainly because this gives the buyer the greatest choice. However, prices can still vary widely as other factors are involved.

You might be interested in a registration number that makes a good word. Words related to power and speed, jobs, pets, professions, hobbies, sport and media stars are popular. Equally, perhaps a zodiac sign or a specific word you feel reflects an aspect of your personality or character may persuade you to purchase a particular plate. BOSS, TOY, BOY, SEXY are all particularly popular words for personalised registrations.

Plates reflecting a model or make of car - A911 for example - are also very popular. Registration plate values are dependent on the availability of other similar number plates, whether the registration mark you have is a current style, prefix, suffix, or dateless registration.

The options are huge. Take your time and have a good hunt around on a professional and reputable website for your perfect personalised registration plate - an experienced personalised registration company will be able to advise you on the most affordable option for your particular requirements.
