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.

Poor communication and customer service
We have sent over 600 shipments through bigpost over the last few weeks. During this time they have not take responsibility for lost and damaged freight; despite us paying 8% extra for coverage. They have also over charged us "accidentally" many time.....you need to check every invoice. We asked to speak with management and felt unheard. We have had lost items from over 3 months ago which they have still not been resolved. When asked to speak with someone more senior to solve the issues they instead cut off the carrier services. Shame on you bi...gpost for not listening to your customers and potentially damaging our business during this time......Extremely poor form and an unAustralian. Also we have had 2 packages travel the country twice despite clear communication which they still charged us for. Do your self a favour and ship direct with another company
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.
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.
Questions & Answers
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.

My daughter purchased a trail bike valued at 1600 dollars from a Dirt Bike shop in Melbourne. Delivery to Launceston was supposed to be 5 days. That was nearly 3 weeks ago. Have rang the Melbourne number and it appears all depots are looking for her package and can't find it. Today is day 6 of searching and still not found. Not very impressed at all. Her bike was 1650.00 plus 80 delivery and we have given up ever seeing her bike, let alone getting refunded for it by the courier company. According to the tracking it is sitting in Melbourne somewhere.
Very bad service. Would not recommend Bigpost to anyone at this stage.
I'm very sorry to hear your daughters trail bike has gone missing in transit. Can you please provide me with a BP number or Connote number so I can investigate this issue for your urgently? Your daughter would have received an e-mail from Big Post with these details.
Hi David, thank you for your response, Big Post have been searching for it for over a week and to now there is still no trace of it. Connote number GPO001256057. Job Id number is 541281. It is almost 4 weeks since it was allegedly picked up from Dandy dirt bike shop in Melbourne. Good luck with it. It has just mysteriously vanished in to thin air.
Jenni. Lauren's mum
Thanks for getting back to me quickly. I can see that we are still contacting TNT every day for an update. TNT are performing depot searches for the bike. I've asked my customer service manager to give you a call and make sure you're kept in the loop.
Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you at the moment.
