Codes of Practice
We follow a strict complaints procedure and two Codes of Practice. As members of the CHERISHED NUMBERS GUILD and RMI-CHERISHED NUMBERS (CNDA), in the unlikely event of a dispute, our customers have the use of an Independent Conciliation and Arbitration process. The RMI can be contacted directly using this address: Head of CNDA, RMI, 201 Great Portland Street, London W1W 5AB.
How the process works.
The person or persons selling the car registration (the donor party) permits CarReg to advertise and subsequently sell (upon finding a buyer) the rights of the car number plate to the purchaser once found. The price acceptable to the donor party will be agreed verbally or in email communication and later confirmed in writing within 48hours. The Grantee of the DVLA Retention Document or the owner (Registered Keeper) of the donor vehicle bearing the registration mark shall not be responsible for any fees charged by the Department of Transport.
In the event of the donor not honouring his/her obligation as prescribed in the sales agreement, then CarReg reserves the right to claim loss of earnings should CarReg have a willing purchaser for the registration mark and not have been previously notified us of the wish to withdraw the mark from sale or make increased adjustment the agreed advertised price.
Once a buyer is found CarReg shall prepare both sets of documentation and be responsible for arranging the transfer application via DVLA Swansea.
Once the application for the transfer has been accepted by DVLA they may request (usually when vehicles are 15 or more years old) to inspect the donor vehicle and is the responsibility of the donor party to fulfil the inspection obligation if/when requested (nowadays this is very rare).
The agreed payment, shall be payable to the donor party on approval of the transfer by the DVLA and the issuing of a replacement V5C (Registration Document) by DVLA Swansea or beforehand at the discretion of our experienced Administration department. The majority of sales are conducted using DVLA’s online digital services at .GOV.UK. Once transferred to the purchaser vehicle, payment will be made by electronic funds transfer (Faster Payment) directly into the donor’s requested bank account provided to us earlier in the sales agreement process. Alternatively payment can be made by cheque.
No specific time period can be given for a buyer to be found or for the department of transport to conduct the transfer, such circumstances are beyond our control.
The donor party undertakes to notify CarReg in writing, by email (please ensure you receive an acknowledgement) or by writing to us (using registered post) if you decide to dispose of the vehicle and/or car registration number or simply wish to withdraw the registration from sale. If the donor party fails to notify us prior to a customer being found, he/she may be liable for any costs incurred as a result of loss of earnings. No charges whatsoever will be made as long as notification is made to us.
In short, all we ask is for the common courtesy in keeping us informed so we are not enquiring on your registration long after you have sold it elsewhere or in some cases decided not to sell.
Both recipient and donor parties are responsible for notifying CarReg immediately of any changes which may affect the transfer in any way.
CarReg liability is confined to the initial transfer only either to retention document with the buyer as nominee or to the buyers vehicle.
The purchaser is only acquiring the right to apply for the transfer of the mark from the donor vehicle to his/her own vehicle. The transfer will be successfully completed once DVLA issue the replacement V5C Registration Document (V5C) or Retention Document (which ever applies). CarReg’s liability is confined to the initial transfer or the supply of a V750/V778 document. Transfers completions or the delivery of any certificate should be within 14 working days although DVLA processing times cannot be guaranteed.
Should the supply of your purchased registration take longer than expected (14 working days) then you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an update or email the sales representative you may have dealt with to arrange the purchase, who will be able to update you accordingly of any delay. Rest assured we always aim to complete each and every transfer as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Delays are rare but can occur if for example we are awaiting requested documentation from the donor party.
Full payment must always be made and be in place before the transfer procedure can take place or the DVLA Certificate (in some cases) be supplied to you (the purchaser).
Once the transfer has been actioned, the process (supply of the purchased registration mark) is deemed to be completed and no refunds or cancellations can be made after this point.
Any further transfers in the future after the initial one conducted by CarReg should be conducted through DVLA Swansea. CarReg will not be liable for any further transfers after the initial transfer has been completed.
All part payments are non-refundable and the service commences from the date of invoice and the mark will be reserved on your behalf with our supplier. CarReg’s suppliers include the general public and other established registration agents and businesses. We also supply stock owned solely by ourselves.
