Ordered 3D plates and they are a joke. I could create better plates. Asked to return them and no such thing as returns, i would avoid.

Received plates as purchased back in February. Within a week or two of fitting them water started getting between the film and the acrylic. Have emailed company, phoned requesting a response and here we are 8 months later and NOTHING .. no response whatsoever. Plates are now so distorted they need changing ( can't be read by ANPR).... AVOID this company, stick to Halfords

Shocking - I wouldn't even give this company a 1 star.
I have used this company for many years and the last 3 or 4 rear plates that have received developed bubbling and cracking where water has seeped in between the plastic and the acrylic. I raised this multiple times with detailed photo's. After 6 weeks they told me they were just out of warranty as I reported this after 18 months. You would expect the plates to last more than 18 months. They now need to be binned as they look terrible. Do not use the company please.

No communication and impossible to talk to a human being, had to wait three weeks just for an email.

The plates are of excellent quality at a very good price and the delivery was quick, efficient and we were kept informed when and how they would be delivered. Any questions to the company were answered very fast and we would highly recommend this company to anyone requiring new number plates.

The website will happily allow you to enter your plate details, take your payment, sending an automated message out to you that was all i ever received! Promises of next day deliveries if ordered before a certain time are more than misleading! having waited ten days with no sign of my plates emailing regularly (as there are no direct phone options or an address to mail to) in an attempt for the company to engage me and let me know what was happening all i received were further automated responses which made me even angrier!!
Luckily i had made the purchase via paypal and managed to get a full refund.
If you are looking at this site and thinking of using them my advice would be dont! I rarely leave reviews and am never usually one to moan but this company were terrible and never acknowledged my complaint once let alone looked to resolve it.

If given the chance I wouldn’t have even given one star.
Happy to take your money offer same day dispatch yet a week later no sign of the product!
I have emailed their customer contact email everyday and have yet to receive any for of acknowledgement or response.
I’ve been caught by them, to anyone reading this LOOK ELSEWHERE! I’m sure there a better companies than this to purchase through........just wish I had looked into it before ordering.

Bought legal (personal number) plates 18 months ago and just in the process of changing the car. Took the plates off the old car and they're delaminating.

The plates that I order from so called Numberplates Direct so far failed to arrived. I'm seeking a rufund, but I don't expect I will get one so i've made steps to reverse the transaction through my credit card co.
I suspect all the "I can't belive the negative reviews" post were actually posted by personnel of the company themselves. An example of why trusting online companies like this should be AVOIDED at all costs.

This company fall out of the Law on legal number plates by claiming that they are only "show" plates. What a joke. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Zero stars!! Awful quality plates and after acknowledging my email and requesting photographs of the plates, they then ignored me. Poor customer service and at this price it is more about principles (of which this company has none!). Waste of time.

Very quick delivery , but quality was poor.i ordered 3d carbon letters which looked more grey in colour and not black. The carbon also looked very unrealistic. I could have bought self adhesive carbon letters and made a better job myself .asked for refund but didn't seem interested in giving me my hard earnt money back . Very dissatisfied

There was a minor problem with my order, but they sent a replacement plate out 24hr delivery - no quibbles, no arguments.
The quality of a company stands out when things go wrong, and I would be more than happy to use them again.

Still waiting 10 days later
Review by FoxyBie8 months ago
Ordered four number plates, big bubbles appeared less than one month later.
Show Plates Direct are really difficult to get hold of, no response to emails, telephone number didn't work.
In the end had to raise Paypal dispute to get a refund.
Review by Ariani8 months ago
"Same day dispatch" means they will send you a tracking number, and then sit on the parcel for 3 days before handing it over to Royal Mail. It is NOT a same day dispatch!
The quality is appalling!!! Air bubbles and a very thin coating layer that no doubt will start peeling within a few weeks.
AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!

I too am shocked by the poor reviews.
Service has been brilliant. I ordered late one afternoon and received plates promptly next morning.
Quality looks great, although time will tell I suppose!

Wasn't going to bother leaving a review but hey, why let them get away with it!
Ordered a 7x6 motorbike plate ....the font is a joke! If I didn't need glasses to read I would with what they sent!
Contacted customer service ...as others have said, nothing back!
You're only as good as your last sale .... this will be my last money wasted with this lot. I've used them a fair bit over the years and they were ok ....obviously gone down hill. Won't use again ....happy to spend my money elsewhere.....totally useless customer service!!!
Review by Nosser Vineski10 months ago
Absolutely shocking experience. After a few months the rear number plate I ordered started to warp and bubble. Showplates direct offered to send a replacement plate, however this wasn’t delivered. I’ve sent email after email but had no response back from them, im so disappointed with the customer service I have received and I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone.
Review by Flourishing Vinnard11 months ago
I ordered a set of plates from Showplates Drect and plates were delivered the next day. However they were for another customer and obviously totally useless. Despite over three emails and phone calls ( yes i found their number) they have not responded to me. Do not use them they are incompetent and do not sort messes they create. I will now see if I can get my money back.
Update 20 minutes after posting this review I got my money back. Thank you but why not answer my email?
