The Plate Link Returns Policy
At The Plate Link, we are committed to ensuring our customers' satisfaction. We understand the unique nature of our products and have outlined a detailed return policy to provide clarity and assurance to our customers. Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with our policy as detailed below:
1. Statutory Rights & Bespoke Purchases:
In accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations of the United Kingdom, customers possess the right to cancel an order within 14 days of receiving the items. However, this right does not extend to bespoke or customised items, which have been tailored to the individual's specifications. Number plates fall into this category of bespoke purchases and thus are exempt from the standard return provisions. The nature of the product, being personalised and tailored to individual specifications, means it cannot be resold, making returns neither required nor possible under UK consumer law.
2. Damaged or Incorrect Number Plates:
If a customer receives a number plate that is either damaged or not as specified in the order, it is imperative to notify The Plate Link immediately. Such items must be returned to The Plate Link within 14 days of receipt to be eligible for an exchange or refund.
3. Private Registration Returns:
Private registrations, due to their bespoke nature, are non-returnable. In instances where a customer desires to cancel an order for a private registration, it is crucial to contact The Plate Link as soon as possible, ideally within 30 minutes of order placement. If a cancellation request comes in later than the stipulated 30 minutes, The Plate Link, while committed to customer satisfaction, cannot guarantee that the cancellation can be processed.
4. Returns of Accessories and Other Non-Personalised Products:
For products that are not personalised, such as accessories, customers must notify The Plate Link within 14 days of receiving the items if they wish to return them. Following this notification, a 14-day window is provided for the physical return of the items. If, however, the item is found to be damaged due to the actions of the customer or any third party, The Plate Link reserves the right to use its discretion in determining the validity of the return.
5. Cancellation Fees for Private Registrations and Number Plates:
For certain transactions involving private registrations and number plates, a cancellation fee may be applicable. The specifics of this fee, including the circumstances under which it might be charged, are detailed in our dedicated cancellation policy. We strongly advise customers to familiarise themselves with this policy before making a purchase to ensure a full understanding of potential obligations. You can review the cancellation policy in its entirety at the following link:The Plate Link Cancellation Policy.
Please note that this fee is in place to cover administrative and processing expenses that arise when orders are cancelled. Our primary aim remains to offer transparency in all our dealings, ensuring a smooth and satisfactory experience for all our customers.
We sincerely appreciate your business and understanding regarding our returns policy. Our primary goal is to ensure you have a positive experience with The Plate Link, and we are here to assist you at every step of the way.
