“Buying a Reg”

Written on: 26/08/2014 by 57Barnes (1 review written)

The admin fee of £25 + VAT is not at all clear from the website. It has also taken them two months to issue a receipt which was totalled incorrectly and I have had to make numerous calls to try to rectify what should be a simple query. Use other reg websites, they must be better (surely!)… Read Full Review

“Awful”

Written on: 16/05/2014 by MarcParrish22 (1 review written)

Please, no explanation is needed for this awful company and 'service' they provide. Please pay extra and use a reputable company for your personalised number plate, even if that means paying extra! The other reviews on this page speak for themselves! … Read Full Review

“Rip off merchants”

Written on: 22/04/2014

DO NOT buy from them.In 2011 They sold me an Irish reg plate that was off a Nissan that was scrapped in 2009.. ( I found out this info after waiting 3 months without getting the plate ) The police could not help, I got trading standards involved and took them to court who sent bailiffs out to their registered office to find a desk a computer and a phone. . None of this has worked and I am £1700.00 ( approx) out of pocket. My family gave me this intended treat for my 50 th Birthday and I didn't… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/04/2014

They are rip off merchants. They sold a number plate of mine and never paid me the £900.00 they owed me. I took them through an arbitration service but I later found out that she was not a qualified arbitrator and she was unable to assess the matter on its merit. R4V produced pictures of franking stamps as proof that they sent me my money. That was their stupid defence. This all took place around 2010. Do not believe that they are members of the CNDA as I called them and it's a self regulated body which they are not members of. This is what the CNDA told me. It's unbelievable how simple minded and fraudulent they are. I filed a case with the courts but if they went out of business then they will hide from the law. They are dishonest people and run a mile from the crud they peddle. The owner is/was a certain Raj Verma. If his name pops up under secretary or director of any company...run. They would never do this face to face and its only the distance of the internet makes them feel safe. Do not buy or sell through them. There are better companies out there. Its cost me £900.00 and legal fees to tell you this. If they get sued and sent to jail, I would happily attend court just to hand them a bar of soap.

“Positive experience”

Written on: 05/02/2014 by TIBSTERpetre (2 reviews written)

I have bought an Irish plate from R4V without reading any reviews first. Then as I was bored I started reading all reviews and I thought I was going to have a heart attack. I was expecting hell but frankly and maybe I am the exception, they were great. I ordered my reg on 08/01. Next day I received a confirmation that the order was processed and that I need to send the V5, road tax and MOT to them which I did by next day special delivery. The next day I received a confirmation email that… Read Full Review

“Still waiting for refund - 2 years later!!!”

Written on: 24/01/2014 by paulawinter (2 reviews written)

Having fallen victim to these traders in 2011, and winning my case in court, I have still yet to be sent my refund that the court ordered them to send me. Having spoken many, many times to other victims, the police and trading standards, it is more than obvious that this company will NEVER be honest about what it has done to its customers and it has not refunded any of the people that it has sweet talked out of money. As said in my previous reviews, they have had 2 years to refund my… Read Full Review

sorry about your bad experience .. maybe they got their act together as I received my plate today in less than 4 weeks. I was a bit of an idiot to order and THEN read reviews and was prepared for a lot of hassle but not the case at all

“Superb Service - Recommended”

Written on: 05/01/2014 by weslake898 (3 reviews written)

Ordered my NI plate and acrylic plates on line. Sent off my documents, and the whole process took just over 5 weeks. Received my new tax disc and V5, job done. Just remember you will have to wait a little longer if you buy a NI plate as it is passed to the DVLA in Ireland and back to the DVLA UK, apart from that... Superb… Read Full Review

“"Got what I paid for"”

Written on: 08/12/2013

Ordered and paid for NI Reg early October. Read reviews and thought what have I done! However plates arrived early Nov, documents from DVLA arrived mid Nov. Communication was pretty poor but overall very happy particularly as I was expecting the worst after reading those negative reviews. Many thanks!… Read Full Review

“Very professional service with a quick response”

Written on: 25/11/2013 by rogerwhalley (1 review written)

I did not want an expensive number for my wife's car, so I decided on one from the cheap selection. Even though it was only a cheap plate I had purchased, the service was first class. A lady dealt with my request and follwed the purchase right through to the satisfactory outcome. I would recommend this company to anyopne who wants to buy a personal number. Their charges were fair and the advice offered was accurate and comprehensive… Read Full Review

“Absolute ripoff!!! Don't buy from them”

Written on: 25/11/2013 by bigfeet (1 review written)

Paid £145 for a new number plate and sent all paperwork through registered post. After a fee weeks of no communication from them, I decided to give them a call which was an absolute chore, I couldn't get through to anyone although it said they were open from 9am, all I kept getting was the same answer message. Finally a few days later after finally getting through to someone, they told me they had not received my paperwork although I had sent it registered post. I waited for another week and… Read Full Review

“lack of communication”

Written on: 04/10/2013

I purchased a number plate from this company as long ago as 2009 but never actually gave it to the person I purchased it for and asked the company to sell it for me at an agreed price, much lower than I had paid. after a year they got back to me and said at had not been sold and I agreed to lower the price even further. I had sent the necessary documents to them when I first asked them to sell it for me and have not heard a word from them now in over three years. I have sent numerous e-mails… Read Full Review

“Northen Ireland Plate”

Written on: 28/09/2013

I ordered a Northern Ireland plate on 17th July, it's now 1 October and ... nothing. I called the DVLA two weeks ago and they advised that no application or request concerning my existing number plate had ever been received and that contrary to the advise that it could take 28 days, that it actually takes 24-48 hours. I then rang the Northern Ireland DVLA and they advised once again ...no application or request concerning my purchased number plate had ever been received, they went further… Read Full Review

This is almost exactly what happened to me. Called the DVLNI and was also told the reg I had purchased months before was still on a motorbike in NI!
Trading standards advised me they had been closed down and re-opened by a ' 'relative' of Verma's. An absolute farce!

“SO FAR DISGARCEFUL SERVICE”

Written on: 24/07/2013 by motokustom (1 review written)

I paid an extra £42.20 ON TOP of the fee for purchase and transfer of an Irish plate for my car. It was clearly said to me on the following phone call that it was going to be a matter of some weeks and I could have it all done within 14 days! Gladly I paid the £43.20 including VAT. Well of course it is NOT the case. I paid on the 10th and it is the 24th today 14 days and NOTHING. They did however give me the number of NI DVLA who confirmed indeed the DE REGISTRATION of my Purchased Plate took… Read Full Review

I can assure you this time he picked the wrong person! I am not very far from Leicester for a start and it was only colleagues who today stopped me going there today to personally extract an apology for a start! I cannot understand any company allowing this sort of thing to carry on? All the bad press etc. have they no shame? If he had called me to apologise as I wrote and gave every opportunity for them to do I would not be pursuing the issue with the Trading Standards who have a case building so if you have been stung call Leicestershire County Council Trading Standards Office. They would love to hear from you.
I am like the proverbial Rottie, I do not let go! thanks for the reply

I finally received my V5 and other docs from the DVLA yesterday. The 2 weeks I was told is rubbish! Even if as they later claimed 14 working days were observed it would have been 2 weeks ago! I had my credit card company check as I felt the 2 week sale was done under false pretence and I have the £43 odd returned! I have no problem with the initial fee as there were no time constraints placed, just the "express" service offered at £39 I think it was plus VAT. I was definitely told 2 weeks and it took 4 weeks so without this "Extra" god only knows how long it takes? To be fair DVLA have Closed the old place in Northampton or rather moved where all cherished plates are completed back to Swansea! IF they already are not swamped enough!
Final Note - If you do buy an Irish Plate, be aware it does take longer because it first has to be de registered in Ireland and they cannot register UK vehicles so the paper chase begins to the UK....

“Avoid, the company is in liquidation”

Written on: 09/04/2013 by Oxy111 (1 review written)

I was one of the first to write review about them years ago after getting CCJ against them. They complained - and I complained against 5 star review that was left under a name of one of the directors (now they are not that stupid). I believe all or nearly all good reviews about them are fraudulent. They also one of those "phoenix" enterprises - the company is now in liquidation so they trade as sole traders. CCJ is still unpaid. Avoid at all costs. If you are still tempted by low prices at… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/10/2012

Firstly, I found myself on this website because I bought a number plate for my wife from this firm. After over 50 days I contacted them by email to get an update, no replies, and since then I have sent couple of more queries regarding the number plate, and you guessed it, no replies. I can only blame myself for not checking the net before buying the number plate, but I paid by credit card and will be contacting them tomorrow. And secondly, Take any positive comments regarding this firm with… Read Full Review
