“Bad unreliable service”

Written on: 20/04/2014 by Paisleyt395 (1 review written)

Beware please do not buy from this company, the man who runs this company we feel is a total amateur. Paid full amount for a number and sent off all paperwork, only to be told 10 days later that the Number did not exist. A professional would have checked to see if this number was correct and available first… Read Full Review

A complete farce, I ordered a plate April 2013, I paid £200 deposit and was MADE to pay the full balance of a £1000 two days later, I was then sent a totally different number plate of cheap quality, 3days later the plate I ordered arrived, They had my Log book, mot, n tax copy, two months later nothing to say I could apply the plates to my car, numerous NUMEROUS phone calls later, I was told that number never even existed, since they had all my money and all my Doc's, would I settle for a… Read Full Review

The piece of paper we would have sent you is the certificate of entitlement. Ownership of the number.

But thanks for your review anyway.

Why have you not returned my phone calls/ emails? Why does DVLA state that the paperwork is false/ worthless?

I sent the paperwork to DVLA in November and they have lost it all, but they came back and told me that it was not legal.

see below.

Dear ****

Thank you for your further email.

My email address is [removed]. Alternatively you can send it to our main email address, which is the DVLA’s Customer Complaint Resolution Team.


As discussed, I would be grateful if you could ask Platehunters Ltd. to contact me, regarding the Certificate of Entitlement. Once they have telephoned me, I will contact you to explain our position.

Yours sincerely

What is the point of me sending the details to Platehunter to solve the dispute, details that were provided by DVLA, if you are going to censor them?

Hello, I'm beginning to get the feeling from DVLA that you are not responsible for the mistakes and what you have sent me is correct. If this is the case then I will immediately apologise for my review and retract the comments.

“This company is a joke.”

Written on: 08/11/2013 by Michaelrwilliams (1 review written)

I have just been reading a review that was posted on the 5th of November about there problems with Plate Hunter. I too purchased a plate in July and to date I have no plate or certificate and again there is no correspondence from the Company or John whom I am dealing with. Maybe the Company have went into receivership or have ran off with my money. On three occasions I was given dates of arrival but as yet nothing and no apologies from anybody. Unfortunately on the overall rating of the… Read Full Review

What you fail to mention is that it took you 7 weeks to pay the balance and subsequently the owneR is now un contactable. I have been trying to find a solution for you this last week but after thi sure view I think it's best I refund you in the morning.
2 sides to every tale and the vast majority of our customers are 100% satisfied.

I find the replies very interesting as I received a letter from Plate Hunter stating that they are no longer trading due to debts in excess of £60k, this was sent to me in December yet they are still replying to the above?
I never received my plate but I did receive a letter stating that the money that I had sent to them will not be returned.
Do not use this company as I am out of pocket by over £3k and nothing to show for it.
Thanks for being so kind in ripping me off?

I first spoke to Plate hunter last year when i purchased my first ever number plate and since then i have purchased 4 or 5 through them for me and my family. Recently purchased the prefect one for myself and John was fantastic with making sure that the price was right and he ensured he would have it to me within a few days (we all know what that normally means when a salesman tell you!) But i stood corrected and there it was the morning after i paid, the plates came through my letter box! I… Read Full Review
