It is much less popular than it was a few years ago, perhaps the trend of buying number plates to sell to targeted buyers is slowly dipping.

There have been 100’s of cases of the years that have shown the huge profits that can be made from the private sales of personalized registrations. Number1Plates wrote that that owner of the registration “F 1” had recently rejected a £5,000,000 bid, and listed it online for a minimum of £12,000,000. This was not a cheap registration to start with though, as he was forced to pay the DVLA upwards of £345,000.

Forbes magazine early this year wrote that the 5th best thing to invest in is your very own side business. Starting small, buying and selling, paying for a bespoke product to sell small scale. This could serve as a great investment if you are able to reinvest small profits made until you snowball your business into something majorly profitable in the future. It is important to remember that many businesses fail, though many can be explored on the smallest investment, and take a much higher toll on your time rather than your pockets.
