“Good plates but RUBBISH SERVICE ”

Written on: 31/07/2015 by ElliottMorris (1 review written)

I bought some plates which were fine. I asked in good time for next day special delivery and paid £9.99p. They were two days late. Plates for cars for some reason will not refund me my postage. They offer the delivery service so the buck stops with them and not Royal Mail. They should issue the refund to the customer then claim it back. I have been chasing this refund for a month now and keep getting fobbed off. I have contacted Royal Mail and they said it should NOT take this long to get… Read Full Review

Ordered some plates after emailing them telling me exactly how i want them. When they arrived i realised they were made wrong. Sent them pictures of what was wrong, they acknowledged they were at fault and promised to send replacements. Replacements never arrived and i didn't get a refund either. No replies received to further emails, they are a bunch of idiots. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM. i am now £36 down. platesforcars.co.uk… Read Full Review

“24 hour delivery means four days later. Avoid.”

Written on: 20/06/2014 by C320 (1 review written)

I ordered plates for two vehicles on a Wednesday evening, and paid extra for Royal Mail Special Delivery to get them on Friday. On Friday morning I received an email saying they had shipped. Because Special Delivery doesn't work on a weekend that meant I would receive them on Monday. I paid for 24 hour service and am waiting four days. I emailed a complaint and was told they had run out of blank plates. I replied saying that wasn't good enough and a refund was in order; not even the… Read Full Review

“Great service”

Written on: 19/04/2014 by 399Weber (1 review written)

Ordered full set of new plates late Wednesday night and they arrived first thing Friday morning. Good communication from the sellers, I received separate emails to tell me my order was received, being packaged and then being dispatched. Plates are of good quality and all legal details included (remembered to tick the box). I wouldn't hesitate to use this company again, although I probably wouldn't bother ordering the sticky fixer set as they don't appear the strongest… Read Full Review

Good communication from the sellers, I received separate emails to tell me my order was received, being packaged and then being dispatched.

“Trustworthy Company”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by jessa2014 (1 review written)

I placed an order with plates for cars last week, and then read some reviews on here and was concerned. I contacted Plates for Cars asking to cancel my order, which they said they could, but they reassured me that all of the reviews, were customers making mistakes online and blaming them and writing bad reviews. Upon actually reading through the reviews, it seams this is correct, why are customers blaming plates for cars for their mistakes??!!! Anyway, to cut a long story short i placed my… Read Full Review

“No customer service appalling company NEVER DEAL WITH...”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Jacobo250 (1 review written)

Plates for cars! Ordered plates on line. I admittedly made an error on the spelling . However had pressed the order button and paid. Realised my error. Sent an email less than twenty minutes after ordering also requesting acknowledgement of receipt of email. I emailed twice more the following morning. Got a reply from the Sales Manager basically saying nothing he could do and in further emails saying it wasn't there fault therefore not prepared to replace. I offered to pay postage for new… Read Full Review

And you have never made a type error... thats why you have a customer service to resolve such customer issues ... or in there case not...i contacted them less than twenty minutes after pressing pay .... i ordered at night ... like I said there not bothered now they have my money. ....!

This company gets poor reviews and from my experience deserving so .... so its not just me that recognise that this company has issues.... I smell a rat here... if I was cynical I say that some of the positive feed back was posted by them in order to make themselves look better than actually are!

Jessa you strange person. You make mistakes too you idiot. The guys point is they would not allow him to correct it because nobody is providing service and they have no conact number. I've been waiting for my plates for 5 days now and they ignore email communication. Unless of course the email contains order information.

“Blamed me for the damage! Stay clear!!”

Written on: 17/02/2014 by Maximus12 (2 reviews written)

Plates arrived and were awful, large 3" laceration through one plate! Plastics were bubbled, cut eneven and were thin and of very poor quality. I contacted the sales team who basically refused me a refund and EVEN ACCUSED ME OF SELF INFLICTED! The manager told me to try to mend the plates myself! What a joker! After reading other poor reviews I have found out that this company is based in Ireland so I would stay well clear. Staff are rude, patronising and blame the issue on you!
