Personalised Number Plates Can Be Big Business!

Pimlico Plumbers business private number plates

Many people are now using private number plates to promote their businesses. Charlie Mullins, for example, has made his fleet of vans at Pimlico Plumbers stand out with a clever range of reg numbers as you can see above. This has brought him a lot of publicity and arguably made Pimlico one of the most well-known plumbing companies in the world.

Over the 25 years since DVLA Auctions began, many other businesses have seen the benefit of one or more plates that are unique to their own area, such as this example from Chanel..

Chanel NO 5 personalised registration plates

..and this one from a Driving Instructor..

PA55 MEE personal reg plate

Below we have listed, in price order, some of the many registration plates that have been purchased for the Drinks, Entertainment, Waste Disposal, Finance and Insurance industries and much more besides. Nine are variations of the word Boss alone!

Once again the prices have been adjusted for inflation by our friend and customer @DesirableNumber using the rate of inflation to allow a better comparison of like for like at today’s prices. These number plates and more can be viewed on his Facebook page.

Read on to see how others have made their business stand out from the crowd and maybe get some ideas for promoting your business…
