The way it 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. The price acceptable to the donor party will be agreed and confirmed in writing. 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 reg mark and not have been previously notified of the wish to withdraw the mark from sale or adjust the price.
Once a buyer is found CarReg shall pair 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 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.
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.
All we ask for is a bit of common courtesy so we are not enquiring on your registration long after you have sold it!
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.
Any further transfers should be conducted through the recipient parties, vehicle registration office. CarReg will not be liable for any further transfers after the initial transfer have been completed.
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 only be successfully completed when DVLA issue the replacement V5C Registration document or Retention Document (which ever applies) CarReg liability is confined to the initial transfer or the supply of a V778 or V750 certificate, transfers completions or the delivery of any certificate should be within 21 days although time periods cannot be guaranteed.
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 members of the general public and other reputable registration traders and businesses.
