Delivered My Parcel To the Wrong House and Put the Parcel Underneath The Neighbours Car!
I purchased a gift of Amazon for my niece's birthday present and it was sent through Fastway by Amazon's choice not mine as I have had issues with Fastway several times before. Anyway they delivered the parcel to My Nieces next door neighbour and put it under the neighbours car ready to be run over by the neighbours car how lazy and non caring can you get why even bother turning up to do this.
Still waiting on my carton...stuck at Sydney Depot coming from Melbourne. Has been over a week. No reasons given when I contacted them via Whatsapp. I would not recomment this courier for small businesses.
Delivery driver left a note
Delivery driver left a note in my letterbox to say I was out when they called. Not true I was in all day. Try finding a contact number for this company, there isn’t one on their website.
Finally found a number and spoke to the local office. Was told it would be delivered the next day. Another lie.
I had to go to their collection point to get the parcel.
This is the worst courier service I have ever encountered
These guys are consistent, I will give them that. It is unfortunate, however, that the only thing you can rely on is their bungling and slow service (and I use the term "service" very loosely). Always check to see if the business you are ordering from uses them, if so, crawl there backwards and you will beat Fastway.
Never use this courier
Dumped an expensive guitar in full view of the street in front of my house, that was packaged with clear branding and image of the guitar on the front. Disgusted that they left this expensive product even though I gave no authority to leave it without someone at my home to collect it. I checked the fastway tracking to see they FALSELY recorded a "signature obtained" at 12.00pm that day. For 4.5 hours, this guitar was sitting in front of my house until my partner came home to see the package out the front, dampened by the rainy weather.
Horrible service and unbelieveable negligence by your couriers, too lazy to take it down to the local post office so they forge customer's signatures?
Worse customer service and delivery window hopelss
My Parcel meant to be deliver two days back but not arrived yet. Call them and ask they don't have even idea when it will come . Not helping to arrange pick up either.
Worse service i have seen in my life.
9 days and still counting for delivery within same city
9 days so far for a parcel to go from one part of Western Sydney to another - an hour's drive. Still not delivered. Chat is hopeless, call centre can do nothing. No info or updates and they cannot tell me what the problem is except they are under a heavy parcel load and it's hard for them. I'd say if that's the case, don't accept the work until you can catch up on the work you've got. My parcel is still at the depot and no delivery has been attempted. I have had to do all the follow up, and they just say they will escalate or it will take another 24 hrs, 48 hours.
never knock on the door
have had several deliveries from a chinese site which uses fastway.. they always just drop the package at the door and claim they have had "authority to leave"..when they do this with a laptop and its destroyed ...its very hard to claim back to the chinese supplier,,,Banggood stop using this mob of cowboys
Delivered but not to my address
I was expecting a delivery from Fastway Couriers at the end of June.
I received confirmation via email that the package was delivered.
I was in all day, NO package was delivered at my home.
When I questioned this, I was sent a photo of the package sitting on a mat at a front door BUT the front door was not mine!
This happened 6 weeks ago and after various emails telling me they were 'looking into' my query, I have ceased to hear anything from Fastway Couriers.
Fastway Couriers have become Aramex Australia, if the same people are running it, beware of this company. They don't care.
They can confirm on paper that an order was delivered, it obviously doesn't matter if it was delivered to the wrong address!
Do not use this servce
I purchased a log shed and the tracking told me it had been delivered to the Sydney depot. After 10 days I called them to see why it had not been delivered. They told me they had lost the parcel in the depot and could not find it. No one called me to tell me, I had to chase them. Package still not delivered and still not found two weeks later. No sorry, no communication. Terrible company that will let you down every time. I though AP was bad but Aramex/Fastway are by far the worst company I have ever dealt with. Apart from Telstra.
They made two deliveries on separate occasions to my house and the parcel was not left in a safe place so it was torn to shreds by our dog. The second time even had a note of NO authority to leave and to take any parcels to our local post office and the same thing happened again. I just cannot understand these peoples complete lack of common sense and it is impossible to speak to anyone about the problems!!
Drivers can’t read
Please teach your drivers how to read, I am so sick of getting someone else’s parcels delivered to my house. It’s the same persons parcels. Your people on the phone don’t give a crap either.
FASTWAY is a loser
I was going to send a parcel to a destination. I applied online and an address of a Cignall Shop was sent to me as a spot to drop off my parcel. I drove there but they shopkeeper said she does not accept the parcel and sent me over to another Cignall Shop. Same story happened there and shop keeper sent me to Aus post office. In post office everyone was surprised why I am bringing a Fastway parcel there. Then i called an agent to come and collect my parcel, still no chance. If you guys cannot do a proper job just choose another one. You are a loser!
Worst in the worst!! Stay away from it!!!
They lost my parcel while insisting it has been delivered and no signature was required. I have been working from home all these days and they did not even ring my bell??? I left an enquiry but got the stupid reply insisting it was delivered.
How are they still allowed to operate as a courier service
I've had the misfortune over the years to have bought four items from companies using Fastway as their delivery service. On three of those occasions a failed initial delivery led to multiple re-delivery fails by virtue of them not coming on the agreed days. Until eventually giving up and travelling well out of my way to pick them up directly from the Fastway depot. Where there were always a other people waiting, apparently forced to do the same thing. This time a lost item has been deemed to have been delivered when it wasn't as I was home the ...entire day and it didn't arrive. So picking it up isn't even an option in this latest instance. I've contacted the company I purchased from and asked them to try and deal with Fastway and requested a refund or new item. Yet to reach an outcome.
my parcel has been sitting at Sydney depot for 4 days, after it took 3 full days to scan it for delivery. Do u hire monkeys? Or just their human equivalent? Just deliver the bloody thing. never again. After reading the reviews I'll be surprised if it shows at all
Tracking number that doesn't track
Had a firearm sent from Vic to Qld via Fastway, they took 2 weeks to ship it, couldn't tell me where it was and offered an email address to try and find my parcel as the phone operator couldn't retrieve any information. Considered calling the police to report a stolen weapon, but called my gun shop first. 14 days from Melbourne to Brisbane, "apparently" still in transit. I was honestly surprised it turned up.
Questions & Answers
Why is my shipment being sent to Sydney? That's the wrong way dammit
I can't answer your question as I have nothing to do with Fast(SLOW)way except some people I deal with use this mob, If I had a choice I would never use then. I understand your frustration they don't seem well organized and they certainly are not fast.
