NUMBER PLATES AS AN INVESTMENT
In the current economic situation I am asked regularly, are Plates a good investment?
Generally the answer is NO with a few exceptions.
Heritage Plates are the only plates that could be regarded as an investment Plate -
time has looked after their values. Because they are unique and highly sought after it
will continue to be the case.
Model specific Plates are also a good buy particularly when they are spelt the correct
way and are accurate,names and words that are special are also very valuable but most
were taken some years ago.
There is a Category on our site called
'The Bob How Collection' which features around
150 Plates that were purchased at the 1986 VicRoads Auction.
Most of them are model specific or special. More importantly, they are priced at bargain
prices($800-$1500) and they are what we describe as 'one offs'.
These Plates will never drop in value and may increase two or three times in value
depending depending on your choice.
A set of Plates from this collection is certainly better value than some Plate that is
not spelt correctly or you need to think hard as to what they mean. It amazes me why people
spend $350 on very obscure Plates that really have no value at all.
