My tracking stated that the delivery was going to be on one day however it arrived on a day when we were not present at home (with no notification) which meant the courier needed to wait for a lengthy period for us to return

Child aged 5 years sobbing with disappointment and exhaustion.

published

Order AUW0476534F
This is a surprise present for 5 year old child.
I was told yesterday 16/12/21 the parcel was out for delivery.
According to my tracker it arrived in Melbourne 15/12/21
Today 17/12 I'm told it arrived at the depot 7.27 this morning.
Incredibly disappointing and it's not O.K to make a 5 year old cry.

website deceptive regarding delivery times

published

Actually delivery windows hidden in pop ups, not visible on booking page. Needs to be rectified as is misleading.
Rude and condescending staff at call centre. ([Names Removed]).
Tony at management was more interested in my issue and not rude at all.
Parcel not delivered within delivery window.

Bad communication but very cheap and I received the packages after a 2 day delay

published

The packages were booked a week in advance and were picked up 2 days late after I’d canceled it. I left a message after the packages were not picked up and no one ever got back to me also because the driver didn’t buzz the apartment and the job was canceled we were concerned the goods were stolen from the apartment foyer. When I rang to confirm I was told the driver picked them up even though I’d cancelled the order so I Icancelled the cancel and the packages were delivered the next day. The cost was incredibly cheap though so the service was good value but bad communication. I’m happy they were delivered in the end.

Attentive to my problems and all round professionals in every way. Would recommend this service to a friend and hope that maybe parcel arrives soon. Affordable and reliable service for everyone to use.

Absolutely awful

published

Had to call four times, took 3 attempts to even get the courier to collect the package. Then it was left in an unsafe place downstairs in the building, well after the estimated delivery date, and not at our office as instructed.

Great work, goods were delivered and well looked after!

Delivery wasn’t within expressed delivery time but understand that it was a regional and interstate route. Glad the goods were delivered with no damage. Shawna from customer service was helpful with updates on tracking information.

I would not use them again

published

This was my first time using them. I used the self service option and booked it in for a 12-5pm pickup window. The sender took the day off work. Driver never arrived. I called just before they closed and was informed sometimes they run late and to wait. Sender waited till 7:30. No communication at all. Called back following week to rebook and they insisted it is to be a whole day window even though the website gives you a time frame. Driver just showed up the next day even though I had booked for Wednesday. The booking pickup is basically worthless. Very frustrating experience not worth it try elsewhere.

Bouncing between Cairns and Brisbane

published

While the service and support from the Cairns crew was outstanding, Startrack's delivery was terrible - the parcel went from Cairns to Brisbane, then back to Cairns, before finally heading south towards Canberra. No explanation as to why; while a ticket was raised with Startrack to investigate, have heard nothing back. Took a week longer than it should, and while this is all Startrack's issue, I have no avenue to rate Startrack, so PackSend receives some of the ire.

A BOOKING Service NOT a Courier Service

published

Pack and Send are a booking service only, they out source the actual courier that collects and delivers your goods, without telling you which company they will use.
Mostly this is fine, but if you have a issue (I had a carton arrive split open) they are the first to tell you it’s not their problem (unless and if you pay extra) so they are good for booking, a good price but poor on follow through of any issues. I will keep using them for the small amount of times I need them, but will suggest you buy insurance. Tracking is difficult as it seems to get scanned at one place 5 times then nothing then 5 times at another place so you are never really sure what’s going on. The actual couriers at my end are great, polite and helpful.

Simple, affordable and has someone to call for support

published

Bought a large item and had to arrange my own courier, so booked online (self-service) with Pack&Send. Paid via Paypal and item was picked up from the seller and delivered to my address. Delivery can be tracked online, but you can speak to customer support as needed.

Incompetent middlemen

published

Following the day the parcel was picked up, there was absolutely zero tracking information from your carrier until the parcel arrived at its destination.
This type of silence is unacceptable. What is the point of you saying I can track the parcel when I can't. Your employee explained to me that maybe the carrier did not have the equipment to ensure a flow of information. THEN, DON'T USE THEM. They are spoiling your reputation.
I have given 1 star for prompt collection, and another star for actual delivery, but in between the service was rubbish.

Can you guarantee that a parcel will be delivered in the next 1-2 days from pick up?

Hi, In the current situation with so many people affected by COVID, it would be inappropriate to provide any 'guarantees' regarding transit times. Our PACK & SEND service centres can provide you with a variety of service options to choose from. Just visit our website to find your closest store - https://www.packsend.com.au/service-centres/.

Why it is showing that (UPS initiated contact with the sender to obtain clearance information. Once received, UPS will submit for clearance.)

PACK & SEND
CustomerCare P.PACK & SEND

UPS is a partner of PACK & SEND and are used for international shipments. They contact the sender's or receiver for information to assist with the clearance process. Do you have a specific tracking number for a booking?
