TV Dragon and I’m A Celebrity Star cashes in on private number plate

Duncan Bannatyne, Chairman of the Bannatyne Group, serial entrepreneur and investor best known for his appearances on TV show ‘Dragon’s Den’ and now the hit show ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’, has sold his cherished number plate, 6 AVS, privately through the number plate classifieds website Plate Trader.

He initially posted a tweet on Twitter to ask if anyone was interested in buying the plate, and from there the Plate-Trader team got in touch with his PA. Duncan agreed to advertise the plate via their site, which is a classifieds site for personalised number plates, allowing buyers and sellers to deal directly rather than through a dealer or middleman, saving both parties money as no commission is taken from sales.

Due to Duncan’s high profile, the Plate Trader team agreed to handle any enquiries about the plate to stop any bogus enquiries from coming through. 

A few months later, the team received an enquiry from Mr G. Singh, who had found the plate on their site and was interested in purchasing it. He made an offer and after some negotiating, a deal was agreed.

The Plate-Trader team helped to advise both parties on how to complete the paperwork, which is one of the main things that puts people off selling privately (if you need advice on this you can view their guide at ), and the sale was concluded.

Speaking of the service, Duncan Bannatyne said “Very impressed with Plate Trader, they were very efficient and professional in selling my reg plate. I would definitely recommend them. For an easy quick sale these are the guys to use, thank you very much.”.

The buyer, Mr Singh, echoed Duncan’s comments, adding “I would like to thank the staff at Plate Trader for the smooth purchase of 6 AVS. Thanks for helping with the paperwork. Great smooth transaction.”

Duncan’s plate joins other great plates like ET11 HAD that have sold via the Plate Trader site recently.
