Efficient and courteous

I have never had any issues with Australia Post delivery of parcels. I have found it to be efficient, timely and the postman or courier has always been professional and polite.

They should use the watches to see how slow their service is.

published

It has taken Australia Post four days to deliver an item 40 kms away. That's 10 km a day so I can only assume the postman was on foot and was held up by wolves or bandits. It cost me $15 for postage and handling and was sent by the seller without contacting me. If they had I would have used technology Aust Post seem to not have and time travelled half an hour to collect it myself.

They kindly walk your parcel to you…

published

It’s really kind of Australia Post to pick up your parcel and personally walk it to you, ensuring its safe delivery. Yes it takes years longer, but what a service!

Over 2 weeks to get here, one parcel arrived, the other went to Sydney

published

I live in Darwin. I ordered 2 wine boxes from SA. Over 2 weeks to get here, one parcel arrived, the other went to Sydney, the tracking was not true, as according to the tracking it was in Darwin for over a week. A week later I received a whole new tracking history with wrong dates and the parcel went to Sydney. One of the 2 parcels arrived quite late, but no further hitches with it, yet on same dispatch order number. I am glad the employees are happy.

16 days for delivery from Sydney to Adelaide

published

On 2 June 2021 TVSN submitted a small package at Sydney to be sent to an Adelaide suburb. Australia Post anticipated delivery between 4-9 June 2021. The final tracking information was that the packaged was in PERTH WA on 13 June 2021 at 6.14 pm. Despite numerous requests, the tracking information was not updated, apart from a customer query being submitted on 14 June 2021. Delivery was estimated to be 18-23 June 2021. Excuse given by Australia Post was that it had been missorted.
Finally delivered on 18 June 2021.

It took Aust Post 11 days to ship a small parcel 16km to my house. Meanwhile, i received another package using Border Express and it took only 3 days from Sydney. Pathetic !

A gram over and next weight group

published

Well they need to sharpen up on their lee- way instead of the hard nose billing.
A parcel weighing less than 5 grams over the 1 killo and goes from $12.90 to $15.75
5 grams is the weight of a 5 cent peice,and usually foreign people serving say out of their control.as maybe thats why the public hate them so so greedy.and the money made must be spent on building a time machine se dates on photo as still awaiting delivery as i write 19th may

Poor Registered Mail Service

published

I am appalled at the service of a registered small parcel taking 19 days from Busselton To Stratton WA the longest wait was the Airport mail service and the Midland mail center did not really care when I followed up on the late delivery.

Prices poor, delivery and notification great.

published

OZ Post are getting pricey. It's becoming a case of allowing competition to creep in just based on their escalating prices. Mismanagement or a money grab?
Fortunately their delivery and communication/tracking makes it somewhat forgivable as they've never lost something (for me) and their notifications are great.

Variable but overall quality is good

published

I've had my share of issues with Australia Post (hence the only 4 stars), and perhaps it is just there area I am in now, but the service has been consistently good for a while. Whether it is sending documents around Australia or the multitude of deliveries, I consistently find items arrive quickly and reliably and their app is fantastic. The most recent one was no exception.

Abusive drivers

published

Made a few complaints about parcels not getting delivered to my property with everything being taken straight to the post office for no reason. I was told the driver would change his ways and indeed he did as I watched him throw my next parcel at my house with force!!!

So I proceeded to make another complaint and was told a new driver would be appointed. The new diver knocked on my door today and told me I made a false complaint against ‘his friend’ and was told by his boss to tell me it was impossible to see what I was claiming. So in short I was lying...

Seriously I am fed up and don’t want your company visiting my property anymore. Sick of being harassed by your workers who I am paying to deliver a service they cannot complete.

Is there any chance my parcel will be delivered today?

Hi my parcel (tracking number #99704713156901000830904) was estimated to be here on Monday 20th- Tuesday 21st, coming from within the same state. It now says delayed- waiting to be processed for delivery. Does that mean it’s still at its senders location? How long roughly would it take to be here?

1 answer
Australia Post
Casey K.Australia Post

Hi Victoria,

That delayed status just comes up automatically when a parcel hasn't arrived within the time frame initially estimated.

Looking at the tracking, this was only posted on Monday the 19th so the delivery estimate calculated by the online tracking seems a bit off. Our website does advise allowing 2-4 business days for same state deliveries within NSW at the moment so it is actually expected to reach you by today.

It hasn't been scanned out for delivery yet though so does appear to have been held up. This is likely due to the ongoing COVID situation in NSW which is having a pretty heavy impact on our network.

I really apologise for the delay, we'll be working to get this to you as soon as possible. In the meantime, it's worth letting your sender know you are still waiting and feel free to contact us on 13 13 18, via social media or by lodging and enquiry on our website if you'd like us to set up a case to keep an eye on this delivery for you.

-Casey

Hi, I posted a small parcel on Monday 19th and the status today, Thursday 22nd is 'we've got it'. Expected delivery was yesterday or today? How can I get an update on this? Tracking #R358360014310713
Thank you, Jo

Casey K.Australia Post

Hi Jo,

Sorry to hear it's taking longer than expected. The best way to get updates is to keep an eye on the tracking as you'll see an update there as soon as your parcel does receive a scan. Looks like it did receive an update early this morning. Depending on where it's heading to, I'd expect delivery very soon but please reach out to our help and support team on 13 13 18 or via social media with the address details if needing an updated delivery estimate.
