Short Combination Number Plates or a plate full of characters?

Which do you prefer?

When it comes to finding your ideal combination of your personalised number plates, do you look for something which reads your name, or do you like something short and sweet.

The honest truth is, unless your combination for custom number plates clearly reads or closely resembles what word or name your trying to resemble, it is only then your number plates are considered valuable. This is a big factor in many countries, big and perfect is valuable, however big and not understandable is often a big NO NO! However it all depends on what your number plates mean, if the characters look like they are going to fall off the plates themselves but still mean something to you, well then that's a valuable combination for you, but for you only. 

Combinations which are often the most valuable around the world are those that are short, such as 'F1' from the UK, a great registration which is simple to read and takes little space on a number plate. Short combinations also make a car look a lot better due to the characters not taking much space and overall car looking more beefy than it actually is. Believe me, custom number plates can create this look. 

So hands on advice, if you're looking for great investment combinations, unless they read perfectly or mean something to you, don't go for lengthy character number plates, choose short combinations, like initials combined with a favourite number, that's if your choice is not already taken.
