“All Properly Served Up On A Plate”

Written on: 02/12/2016 by MaxLucasStone (1 review written)

Needing replacement plates I chose this site as being easy to navigate and fully informative. I wanted the registration on my new Porsche to look clear, non fussy and carefully centred. The Gel Resin plates I selected are absolutely perfect.Plates For Cars may not offer a telephone contact number but they were incredibly prompt in our email exchanges.Helpful beyond any expectation they guided me to exactly what I wanted to achieve… Read Full Review

“Brilliant”

Written on: 28/10/2016 by Aatz (2 reviews written)

Make sure you order from these guys. I ordered some plates which came damaged because of the post. I emailed these guys and straight away the person I dealt with got back to me and advised that he would send some new plates. The next day i got my plates. Brilliant customer service, good quality plates, will order again off these guys. … Read Full Review

“Poor communication, plates printed incorrectly.”

Written on: 01/03/2016

I asked for some custom spacing which they said was no problem. Throughout the process the email communication has been painfully slow, there is no phone number given and despite offering my mobile they can't/won't phone. The plates have finally turned-up.......they're wrong. Raising a query seems pointless. I looks like will have to raise a dispute with the bank in order to get my money back. They may be OK for regular plates but avoid if you want a custom numberplate/showplate - there are… Read Full Review

“APPALLING SERVICE - KEEP WELL AWAY FROM THEM.”

Written on: 24/02/2016 by LetMeOutOfHere (2 reviews written)

PLATES FOR CARS or PLATES4CARS (DUBLIN) YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! The Web page looks great and it makes out like the company is a huge operation. Check out the address on Google Street View and it is nowhere to be seen. WHAT LEADING COMPANY DOES NOT HAVE A CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBER? They state on the "about link" on the website that they have "become recognised as Europe's leading number plate supplier. We supply number plates throughout the world" They had not even heard of a Jaguar XF… Read Full Review

AVOID, AVOID, AVOID......I agree.

Communication is appalling. It looks like I will have to lodge a dispute with my bank to recover my money.

“Appauling, Truly Appauling you have been warned”

Written on: 20/08/2015 by Emery117 (1 review written)

I wish I had read these reviews before I purchased some plates although it does appear that there are many of the reviews that are too obviously written by members of the company. The ASA too has had cause to become involved in a case which. Keep clear, order from Ebay who at least can offer a comeback on purchases. Try Halfords or your local motor accessory store you can see them being made and usually by a caring member of staff… Read Full Review

“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 a set of 3d gel plates for my car at £50.00 plus a high charge for next day delivery,when they arrived the numbers were out of line with each other,contacted by email as no phone number (wonder why) was given some story about tolerance of the print etc etc,all taking me on a merry dance to get of replacing them,in the end they said they were unwilling to rectify the problem so I would certainly not recommend these amateurs I could have bought some plates and letters and got my 4 year… 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

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.
