Carreg’s Auction Credentials

Carreg have been sponsoring the number plates auction price guide & The Car Numbers book for over 25 years.   We used to attend every sale in person but due to vast improvements in IT Technology over the years the online bidding facilities are stable and reliable, the need to attend in person is not essential.  We have excellent knowledge of how they work and can often accurately estimate what many marks we sell for.  We have acquired hundreds of car numbers by way of auction, saving clients both time and money!  Dealers and traders often purchase stock from auctions aswell.

Types Of DVLA Auctions

The DVLA currently have two types of auction. The Timed Auctions, mainly for lower priced year letter numbers & the live auction of Personalised Registrations, where more select and often more expensive number plates are sold.  In the Live sales there are approx 1200 lots sold over 3 days with the majority having reserve prices in excess of £1200.

Number Plates as Investments

We have built a large client base of investors who ask us to buy number plates from auctions just to re-sell.  If you study the past auction prices or use our knowledge and guidance, we should get you a healthy return on investment (ROI).   In the past, this idea has certainly given a better ROI than any bank or Building Society could possibly offer. You and your family can enjoy the use of the number plates whist earning money when they sell.
