Caring customer service
Efficient, on-time delivery
Reasonably priced services
Simple & cost effective
The process of online booking was very simple. Cost was very reasonable, much cheaper than I expected. Online tracking was helpful although package arrived three days later than eta. Still very satisfied.
Bad communication but very cheap and I received the packages after a 2 day delay
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.
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
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.
As buyer of this item i was reqd to arrange freight from 3000km away. First attempt at booking thru website lead to confusion on difference between selfservice and premium and i called the local packsend. My subsequent booking as self service was cancelled as i was told by call centre i needed premium. Sellers local depot told me i had to pay $60 more for pickup from seller. Booked again but pickup window was not tight enough so arranged with seller to drop at his local depot. Proceeded smoothly after that. Very disappointed with lack of clear ...and detailed information on the packsend booking web site on the difference between two modes. I wished i had gone with a different company but package arrived intact and only one day late (or was expected date time in USA time not local time?).
Bouncing between Cairns and Brisbane
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.
Some good, a lot of bad
Booking was easy
customer service were available and helpful when the first pick up never happened, and when I needed assistance at store.
Pick up date was missed first time, had to call and get a 2nd one, at which point the pick up had happened without a schedule - I guess this was lucky there was somebody there.
lack of information from the actual courier, just a cryptic email stating pick up may not have happened.
I paid for signed delivery, I waited for delivery, it didn't happen. Apparently signed delivery is not personal.
9-5 customer service, not available when I realized I did not have my package yet....
A BOOKING Service NOT a Courier Service
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.
Excellent service the only thing I would like to see is more up to date tracking as tracking only states it has left does not give you up to date manifest depot locations

Simple, affordable and has someone to call for support
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.
Excellent service, helpful staff.
The Pack N Send website and online process was easy to navigate and comprehensive. Pack N Send staff both at the local center and the online help desk were very responsive and helpful. The overall service experience was only let down by the sub-contracting carriers - the pickup was handled by TNT express, and didn't happen until the day after it was requested. The drop off was by FedEx, and the driver dropping off handled the packages very roughly, using excessive force to remove them, and spilling other packages on the ground. But overall my shipment arrived fairly quickly and undamaged, at a fair price.
affordable! Brings me new options living in regional Victoria and being able to do gumtree deals.
Yes everything was on time as said and during a pandemic as well. Tracking was a little delayed but didn’t worry me too much. Delivered to my door was great
Order and pick up was smooth and as expected. The only issue is that the parcel arrived one day after the estimate due to the local distribution provider not offloading the package before travelling to the next town. I dont believe this was due to any fault of Pack & Send.
Pick up was a few days late, but in the end it was delivered to me and for a decent price, actually very happy, price was good value for the delivery distance and weight, which makes up for the long wait and no communication on the days when the item was not collected

Thank you for getting back to me im also wondering if you have any partner in Germany as well
Sorry Alex, no we do not have partners in Germany.
Would anyone be able to tell me what partner couriers Pack & Send use in South Africa to deliver parcels once they arrive there? Do they have their own staff/drivers, or do they use a local company? Thanks
