Online store

We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information to do the activities we told you about, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for 6 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address, billing and shipping addresses.

Products and Services

We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours, images and descriptions of our products that appear at the store/shop. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor’s display of any colour will be accurate.

We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of any of our products or Services to any person, entity, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or Services that we offer. All descriptions of products or product pricing are subject to change at anytime without notice, at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time. Any offer for any product or Services made on this Site is void where prohibited.

We do not warrant that the quality of any products, Services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations, or that any errors in the Service will be corrected.

Selling and buying number plates

We make this site available for United Kingdom residents over the age of 18 only.

Vehicle registration numbers (number plates) are a way of identifying vehicles and are owned by the Secretary of State. They are allocated to vehicles as part of the process of registering and taxing vehicles.

Please be aware that a seller of a number plate may only sell the exclusive rights to use the number plate as allowed by the DVLA, and not ownership which remains with The Secretary of State.

All registrations and transfer of registrations remain at all times subject to DVLA and government approval. The Secretary of State has rights to cancel a registration at any time without compensation.

Unless otherwise stated, We do not sell or make available the registrations listed on this Site and therefore disavow, and are free from, all liabilities regarding any registration in question.

Buyers and sellers are entering into a contract when they complete transactions on Best Reg Co. It is the sole responsibility of the Seller to ensure that the correct details are submitted and displayed when listing a registration on Best Reg Co. We will not be held responsible for any losses as a result of mistakes, errors or incorrect information provided in a listing.

We do not endorse any Seller or Buyer using our Services. It is the sole responsibility of the Buyer and Seller to verify any information that is provided in a listing or via communication on and off Best Reg Co.

You may only use our Services to advertise or list a Registration that you hold the assignment rights to or have been granted explicit permission to sell or advertise by the rights holder. The registration can either be on a vehicle you or the rights holder own or are the registered keeper; a V750 Certificate of Entitlement or V778 Retention Document you or the rights holder are in possession of and are the purchaser, grantee or nominee.

Registrations advertised must not be spaced incorrectly or misrepresented and must be correctly displayed (as well as in images) and are listed on the understanding that they will be displayed as set out in the Road Vehicles (Display of Registration Marks) Regulations 2001.

Sellers should provide a clear and accurate description and any Terms of Sale, and are required to meet the expectations they have set in their listings. These should include:

  • Displaying the registration as set out in the Road Vehicles (Display of Registration Marks) Regulations 2001
  • Displaying the current status of a registration
  • Clearly stating if the registration is non-transferable
  • Displaying the maximum vehicle age requirements for age-related registrations
  • The forms of payment accepted and how the transfer of the registration will be fulfilled
  • Clearly stated taxes or applicable government-imposed fees
  • Have the registration in inventory or have an existing agreement with a 3rd party to fulfil the transfer of the registration under the terms of the listing

Activity that doesn’t follow our policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or cancelling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.

You may amend any details of your listing once submitted except the registration itself. If you need to amend the registration due to an error, you may delete the registration from your account and create a new listing with any of your available packages, or Contact Us for assistance.

Registrations supplied on a V750 Certificate of Entitlement or V778 Retention Certificate will need to be transferred to a vehicle before the expiry date on the certificate or renewed directly with the DVLA.

You will permanently lose the right to use the number if you do not renew it before the expiry date. DVLA will not accept applications made after the expiry date.

It is the sole responsibility of the Purchaser to ensure that the correct details are submitted when advertising a registration mark online. The Company cannot be held responsible for any mistakes or errors.
