Why are so many people buying Number Plates?
Historically most of our clients have bought registration numbers to improve the overall look of the vehicle, to give their vehicle the ultimate individual touch. Increasingly however, a personalised registration number is bought for many more reasons:
It may be a bit of fun, something to make the owner smile before every journey.
Strategic Purchase
Rather than buying a depreciating car every year or two, a customer may rather assign a number plate and change cars less frequently to strategically save money on new cars.
Classic Cars
It may be to assign a "period" registration to a classic vehicle that has lost it's original number.
Advertising and Promotion of Business
It may be to promote a business, a company vehicle with a private number plate is a great form advertising and promotion, it also shows the owner to care about the business as well as showing strength and success.
Certainly we have noticed increasingly educated buyers have followed the market and noted year on year record prices smashed. Many buyers now ask us to manage a portfolio of numbers for them, we purchase and sell their registration numbers at a profit, often without them ever assigning to their cars.

We "practice what we preach", Bold Registrations continually re-invest in quality stock, we buy some of the most expensive numbers in the UK for ourselves as well as our customers, we are passionate about quality and truly believe number plates can be a sound financial investment.

How to Buy Buying from Bold couldn't be easier - we are advised of the required registration / registrations.
We always confirm availability and best price, showing clear total prior to accepting payment.
The registration is then secured using the clients preferred secure payment method.
That is it, we will organise the rest.
We deal with the entire transfer from start to finish dealing with all of the legalities and paperwork at no extra cost.
Secure Payment Methods We accept all major Debit/Credit Cards as part payment and Electronic Bank Transfer or Cheque payable to Bold Registrations Ltd as full and final payment.
The usual method is to secure the registration with a part payment on a Debit/Credit Card, this immediately removes the registration from the market. The balance is invoiced (VAT invoice if applicable) and paid by bank transfer.
If you have any questions regarding payment please do not hesitate to contact us. Our Service Customer satisfaction and quality of service are paramount to us, we offer an unrivalled fast, efficient, hassle-free service throughout the buying process.

To supply your chosen registration, we will either:

  • Fully assign the registration to your vehicle.
    We ensure DVLA issues a new V5C logbook and changes your vehicle tax and mot online or
  • In some cases we can supply the registration on a retention certificate.
    The registration is held until you are ready to transfer to a vehicle.

    The second option is often preferred if the registration is being bought as a gift or if bought as an investment.
    We are here for you at any time throughout the process to answer any questions you may have. We are always happy to put you in touch with previous customers who can testify to our service, or see previous customers in our GALLERY.

    A client can check on the progress of their transfer at any time.

    Data Protection Bold Registrations will never pass your details to a 3rd party, period.
