DVLA Personalised Registrations celebrated a 100 per cent sales conversion for its second successive live auction, selling all 1,250 lots offered during its autumn sale held at Wychwood Park near, Crewe.
The Agency had cause to celebrate in July when its 30th Anniversary auction staged at The Vale Resort near Cardiff became its first ever multi-day auction to completely sell out. However, that achievement was made possible when the single unsold registration was bought 48 hours after the gavel came down on the event and shortly before that auction was officially concluded.
Last week’s event surpassed that momentous sale, with every lot being sold during the actual event itself. In summary, it raised £4.9 million for the Treasury and again featured a high number of registered bidders, further underpinning the Agency’s belief that personalised registrations continue to be highly sought after by British motorists.
The personalised registration 32 O sold for £39,000, making it the sale’s highest priced registration, followed by IG 2 at £26,500 and ADD 44M which sold for £24,000.
Jody Davies, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Senior Sales Manager, said: “We have waited patiently for 30 years to record a 100 per cent sales conversion for one of our multi-day auctions and here we have two in succession. It is yet another exceptional result and one that once again emphasises just how popular and sought after personalised registrations are.”
DVLA Personalised Registrations will stage its fifth and final live three-day auction of the year at the Stratford Manor Hotel near Stratford upon Avon from Wednesday, November 20th.
