The following terms of sale will apply to all purchases
PLATE NUMBERS AND MINISTRY FEES
All plate numbers have been verified with The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) and are available for use under the YOM program. The MTO fee of $251.65 for application under it's YOM Program and termination transfer fee of $32 (if applicable) is payable by the purchaser. YOMplates.ca is not responsible for this cost.
All major credit cards are accepted as well as Interac e-mail transfer. Thankfully no HST is charged - being a 'small business' it doesn't meet CRA's threshold to do so. Buy with confidence – YOMplates.ca is a registered business in Ontario (Registration # 290552694).
We now charge a $20 flat rate shipping fee for all packages shipped within Ontario as shipping rates have skyrocketed over the last few years. Shipping outside of Ontario is not offered at this time. All packages will be shipped next business day via Canada Post, Expedited Service with insurance and tracking number. Expedited service typically takes 2-5 business days within Ontario. Allow more time if located in Northern Ontario or have a rural address.
*Shipping of one vintage map or one 1952 replica decal will be a flat rate of $5 via untracked, lettermail service. This rate will automatically calculate at checkout.
I’m located in Ottawa, but don't have a brick and mortar business location. At present I don't offer local pick-up due to the sporadic nature of the business.
SIX-MONTH WARRANTY GUARANTEE
I offer a 100% money back guarantee for 6 months after purchase. If the MTO refuses to register a set of my YOM plates during the 6-month guarantee period, just send them back to me in the same condition as you received them. I will issue a full refund or offer to exchange for another pair free of charge – your preference. After 6 month’s time, the purchaser assumes the risk of the YOM plates being passed and registered by the MTO.
In the unlikely event that the MTO rejects a pair plates you bought from me, I will require a copy of the rejection slip as confirmation and to process a refund or exchange. In some situations the MTO has made an error and I have contacted them to overturn the ruling. With well over 2,000 YOM pairs sold to date, my customers’ approval success rate is 99% and this should not be an issue. I will cover the cost of your return shipping should this happen.
RETURNS AND REFUNDS
Initial 15-Day Period
Your 100% satisfaction is always unconditionally guaranteed. If for some reason you are not pleased with your YOM plates, you may return them within 15 days for a full refund provided they are returned in the same condition as you received them.
6-month Guarantee Period
If you changed your mind during the 6-month guarantee period and wish to return a pair (provided the pair has not been registered with the MTO), I may be interested in buying back the pair depending on my stock levels. Any refund outside the initial 15-day return period will be pro-rated at 80% of the initial purchase price.
After 6-month Guarantee Period
YOMplates.ca reserves the right to refuse requests for returns and refunds after the 6-month guarantee period. In some instances and subject to price negotiation, I may be interested in buying back the pair.
Unless otherwise noted, the buyer is responsible for return shipping costs.
