“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. Plates are of good quality and all legal details included (remembered to tick the box which I assume some others I've seen complaining haven't done). I wouldn't hesitate to use this company again, although I probably would choose the screws rather… Read Full Review

“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!

“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! Please do not… Read Full Review

“Plates for Cars - Be Very Wary”

Written on: 23/11/2013

Plates arrived promptly but I missed a crucial part of the order where a box marked 'legal details' which defaults to No, must be set to Yes. as such if you order what you think are UK Legal plates, they will not be. They will not peramantly display the maker, post code and and the BS number required for MOTs. I pointed this out after taking delivery, was given a rather brusque answer that I received what I ordered. Eventually they did concede to post me stick ons which I believe are not an… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/01/2014

I made the same mistake today. I realised within minutes of submitting the order and tried to find a contact telephone number for Plates for Cars. Unfortunately their website gives their address in Dublin but only e-mail addresses for contact. I sent an e-mail straight away advising of my error. It was actually timed at just 14 minutes after I had placed the order. I didn't have a response so I sent another e-mail with my telephone number asking them to contact me about 40 minutes later. I have heard nothing and it's now past the end of the business day. It will be a good test to see whether they took notice of my e-mail which they surely must have received before they began making my plates. If they do respond and rectify the situation I will post a glowing review. However, I'm not feeling too confident.

Good News! Despite not receiving a reply to my e-mail by the close of the business day on the Friday that I placed my order. And believing I had wasted my money and would need to order again, I received an e-mail from Plates for Cars at 11.00 o'clock on the next night - (Saturday night) responding to my desperate plea and asking whether I wanted my plates to be UK legal. I immediately replied that I did and received a confirmation on the Monday that my order had been despatched. The plates arrived the next day and were indeed the legal version I needed. So thank you Plates for Cars for reading my e-mail and responding (though you had me worried). Might I suggest, though, that your online ordering should be changed so that the drop down arrow defaults to 'YES' - UK legal plates rather than defaulting to the illegal version. I appear not to have been the only one to miss it yet would think that the vast majority of people who order number plates don't want the illegal ones as they will cause the vehicle to fail it's MOT test.

“Good service”

Written on: 03/11/2013 by DGPage (1 review written)

I ordered a new set of plates with the car's badge on and a colour surround. The first ones arrived within a few days. They were fine except the surround was the wrong colour. I emailed the company and they quickly admitted their fault. They sent me the correct order at no extra charge. They have allowed me to keep the others as a spare. All in all; good quality plates and good customer service… Read Full Review

“Irish company, costly to return items, bad customer...”

Written on: 11/10/2013 by SurreyDragon (2 reviews written)

There are several companies in the UK that can produce number plates. I would strongly recommend people to use one of the other companies as my experience with platesforcars.co.uk has been very bad. They ignore my emails (they did reply to a few, but stopped once they realised they might have to pay me some money). I have also had difficulties with my order with them partly because they are based in Ireland. They don't seem to be subject to all the laws of England & Wales, and that led to… Read Full Review

Agreed. This company's warranty & guarantee are worthless and I suggest you avoid them.
Any company that claims a jiffy bag and a sheet of plastic constitutes a safe and secure delivery, is not providing a proper service.

“Very poor customer service ”

Written on: 27/09/2013 by illedan (1 review written)

After a few heated discussions via emails between myself and carforplates, I would like to warn readers here that if you do use them, to pay attention to the FAQ's and Legal section of their website, and to be prepared that you may be out of pocket if you make any kind of mistake unknowingly. I am £58 out of pocket, and I was unaware of the first mistake. I argued that I would like at least a refund for the first mistake because I was unaware there was a problem, and the plate is not legal… Read Full Review

“Faultless Plates and Service!!!”

Written on: 15/09/2013

Hi, I just wanted to thank plates for cars for the impeccable service that I received throughout my recent purchase. I had quite a few queries regarding an order that needed a little bit of tweeking in comparison to normal orders but not only were the email responses immediate, but at all hours through the night! After my order, I was kept up to date about the purchase, shipping and delivery and received my order within days! Plates were great quality and just what I wanted. So thank… Read Full Review
