Insists on passing the blame onto everyone else
I purchased a piece of furniture that required a skid 3 weeks ago to be delivered to the nearest depot within 5 working days. $150 with $12 insurance for a 270Km drive seemed great. Until my piece of furniture was lost in transit.
Big Post have used every excuse under the sun to blame my supplier (not their fault) blame the sub contractor TOLL IPEC and take no responsibility.
I’ve asked for remuneration based upon the Freight Warranty purchased. Answer NO.
I’ve asked to have that item returned to the store (if they ever find it) so I can pick...
Nothing good to say after that experience
My parcels were dropped off by TNT on the 5th January. This same week I dropped in and asked if Big Post had received them, to be told they're not there yet. I chased these parcels 2 more times, once by phone, then another visit. I ended up dropping in again (12th) because TNT (NOT TOLL) had already delivered it to these guys on the 5th. After a bunch of confusion, it was discovered that my parcels may have come after hours, and not been "checked in" to the system. Apparently this happens more often than you would expect, and the employees resp...onsible have been spoken to about this before, yet they still do it. So let me get this right, it arrives on the 5th after hours. It's accepted, but then left sitting there for 7 days, until I come looking for it??? Nobody noticed 3 LARGE boxes sitting there for a week? Weird. Anyway, when I finally collect my missing packages, the guy tells me someone there changed the con note number on the boxes. WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT??? In the end, I've been given different reasons for why my parcels were "invisible". Anyway, I would not trust these guys to organise a large drinking session in a brewery, if you catch my drift.
Will never do business with them again
Unprofessional company, after delivery extra charges are invoiced with no communication. Charges are discretionary by the couriers. Dimensions and weights supplied at the time of booking, after delivery then receive a bill for additional heavy weight charges. Spoke to accounts, confirm did not need to pay the additional invoice. Then receive a final demand notice with threats of lodging with a credit agency. Spoke to accounts again, told me to take it up with my customer and I was the one that booked the freight incorrectly as it was a residential address, even though the customer confirmed its a business address.
Will never use again
Used several times thinking the enormous delays were just bad luck, but the absolute unwillingness to try and locate lost freight and naivety of BigPost in believing illogical statements from the transport providers they use when occasionally attempting a lackluster follow up on the customers behalf was unnaceptable.
Signed up to Big Post as a business owner looking for a service that would take the hassle out of us having to deal with multiple freight companies. They promised account managers who would look after that for us. Great, or so we thought!
Sounds good in theory until something goes wrong. They lost a valuable shipment, we had to follow them up daily for updates - no communication. Told us the shipment was lost and there was nothing they could do. So I rang the courier myself and after a few phone calls the shipment was located and returned to us...
Horrible company. Every time we sent items with them, they would charge extra. They have no customer service.
Packages arrived brocken and big post always added charges. Their customer service is shocking. They refuse to help resolve any issues. Quick to take your money though. Very disappointed in the whole experience.
Apparently its okay to be 6 days late.
Package was 6 days late from expected delivery date. Tracking information was incorrect entire time.
Had no communication from Bigpost. Every time I made contact I was giving different excuse from the truck broke down to traffic, etc.
Then told I would have to pay more money for an earlier delivery when package was already 6 days late.
No offer of a discount or compensation.
Impossible to rely on Bigpost anymore.
Really Poor Service, Hidden Fees Everywhere
Really terrible service, hidden fees added on everywhere, for residential pick up, for check weight, for weekly admin which doesn't seem to exist, no logic, like speaking with a child or to a brick wall. Would not recommend these guys if you're requiring regular freight needs, the invoicing and charges are completely inconsistent and problem solving really poor. Try Sendle, E-Go or just Australia Post as worthy alternatives or some of the other commercial agents if you run a business.
Door turned up damaged and broken glass.
Product turned up damaged. Sender was forced to refund part of the purchase so I could have it repaired. Very disappointing for both sender and reciever. Told would have to jump through hoops to get product replaced and was on a tight time frame. Door was almost one week late.
Extremely Dissatisfied Customer
I have recently had a very bad experience with this freight forward company.
A parcel being tracked by this company was never received, however they absolve themselves of all responsibility for the loss of my parcel.
The parcel in question have a value greater than $300.
There response to my questioning of it's whereabouts was that it was delivered and probably stolen. Clearly not the response of a reputable company.
The driver was sent from the courier company to investigate. I questioned him about where the parcel was left. He indicated t...hat he left it on the front door step, which is in full view of all passing traffic. This is in contradiction to what is stated on a tracking email I received, which states that if no person is present the goods will be left in a safe location. I suggest that our front door step is not a safe location.
They sent an email before delivery with hyperlink to track delivery which is really good BUT our experience with the staff is really disappointing. The online tracking estimated that the package will be delivered on Saturday, therefore I immediately emailed them that no one will be at home the next day (Saturday) to receive the post. Before there was an official reply, they delivered it one day early, left a card, informing us to pick up from their depot and will charge for redelivery!!! We have to complain to the seller to get the matter resolved. What a disappointment. We wont even shop with the seller now.
No longer trading with Bigpost
I was approached by [Name Removed] from bigpost whilst using others at the time. They found me. I didn’t find them. I thought I would give bigpost a try. I’ve used bigpost for over 4 years. I will not be using bigpost anymore, not by choice but simply because they don’t want my business. It’s fine because it looks like the competitors win more of my business. I will carry on using Temando , transdirect, interparcel, e-go, smartsend just to name a few who have been great with us. E-go / Hunter also offers depot to depot.
On many occasions Freig...
I was expecting delivery within 2days even tracking web page says. But nothing happened every time I call they said it is in transit (Frankston to hoppers I don't know how many days it takes ) .i requested call center people to give me contact details of the driver or someone so, I can pick it up. simple answer for Big post sorry we don't have details we just website.

Big Post has a network of depot partners that our customers can have freight delivered to, for receivers to collect from. Your freight will be delivered to our depot partner in Benalla. The freight is currently in transit, unfortunately it has been affected by the current carrier service delays.
When the freight has been delivered to the depot you will receive an email advising you how you can collect. If you have not received that email by the end of this week please feel free to give us a call on 03 9544 5525 8.30am - 5pm Mon - Fri, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Big Post Customer Service
Are there any insurance included when you book with Big Post when an item goes missing?
thank you for your question. Big Post offers a product called Freight Warranty, which the customer can choose to add to their account.
Freight Warranty covers most freight types, although there are some exclusions such as breakable items eg. glass and ceramics, and items booked as authority to leave. If the customer has chosen to activate this on their account they can make a claim for both damaged and lost items. If you would like more information I would be happy to send you our Freight Warranty documents.
