DVLA Personalised Registrations Step Closer to a Complete Sell Out Sale
December 2, 2018
As DVLA Personalised Registrations prepares to celebrate its 30th anniversary year, the agency does so buoyed by another hugely successful 12 months which witnessed another impressive event when its final sale of 2018 came precariously close to recording its first complete sell out event.
Incredibly, all but two of the 1,250 lots on offer at The Haycock Hotel sold. Incredibly, such was the frenetic bidding, those in the auction room on both Thursday and Friday witnessed complete 100 per cent sales on both days.
“What an incredible way to bring 2018 to a close…” that was Jody Davies’ reaction upon hearing of the phenomenal sales success. As every year passes we go on record as saying the popularity of personalised registrations are as high as ever and 2018 reassured us that that is the case.”
Jody, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Senior Sales Manager, added: “Obviously, one of our goals for any auction is to record a complete sell out, to be left with just two lots is mightily impressive and only confirms that we are again providing customers with exactly what they want.”
As predicted, the registration CEO 805S proved to be an early pace setter during the final live auction of 2018 when it fetched £16,000 but what wasn’t part of the script was the relative youthful look of the successful bidders who enlightened all in the Cambridgeshire auction hall with their energetic bidding. What also wasn’t part of the script was the success of 1 USD which came into focus as the sale drew to a close but, if anything, epitomised the relentless bidding. Despite the late stage of the sale, it changed hands for a £33,000 hammer price and in doing so became the event’s highest-selling personalised registration.
It is an offence to alter, re-arrange, or misrepresent a registration number. There is a maximium fine of £1000, and the registration number can be withdrawn without compensation.
