Package leaves Qld for NSW, after 48hrd the tracking app places it in SA. My inquiry was rebuffed; "private arrangement between Sender & P&S". But I paid?! It arrived a week later, only slightly damaged.
My Item was sent explicitly with direction of my sign at delivery time.
Instead the currier just throw 3500$ worth box outiside my house and left without wait anyone to pick it up!!
I dont mind that the item arrived with a week of delay ,But this is unacceptable!!!!
Affordable Service - Not the best technology
The online self-service was user friendly and affordable. However, when the parcel was picked up and for several hours after, the status on the tracking link was not updated. I had to send an email to confirm the pick up of the parcel. Moreover, customer service were not able to give me an ETA. Furthermore, although I paid for a signature, my parcel was left in front of my door (understandably, this is due to the pandemic; however, the online service should note that)
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.
Slow, required a lot of follow up
Booked a pick up for Wednesday, it wasn’t collected until the following Tuesday, after I called 3 times to ask what had happened. I didn’t appreciate the lateness nor the need to follow up myself. I understand that there is a leak in demand at the moment, and a 1-2 day delay was flagged on the website. I would’ve understood this if the communication had been better.
Is just OK. Doesnt appear to be managed.
Competition of the booking form is a bit painful. Why can it not remember past common records? The tool is not updated inline with tracking. Most of my bookings show undelivered still.
UPDATE: 35 days and counting with no update
I had sensitive documents to be picked up from Canberra and delivered to Perth. Booked them in to pick up and they were a day late. From day one to now, day 18 (day 35 now) , the online tracking has not been updated and just says in transit. 18 days day (35 now) ! APPALLING! their online quote says 5-6 days. Are you joking?
I have emailed and called twice. All times they said they will get an urgent ETA and will call me back with an update.
I'm still waiting for my call back and my package.

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.
Can't send electronics
Can't send electronics because: dangerous goods for online service
No TV, no computer, no console, no raspberry Pi, no mobile phone, not even components. Dangerous goods. idk. it must be because of those exploding Samsung phones.
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.
Unprofessional Staff and lack of knowledge Plus no system
The Package was not picked up on time despite reminding again.
And the actual pain started when I contacted their Parramatta Office and the staff over their has no sense to even how to communicate with client.
Half of their staff is good and well behaved and knows how to handle queries, while half of the staff is just terrible not ready to do the job............... just leaves you speechless
Failed to pickup
Failed to pick up twice with no communication or notes left at collection address. I had to chase the progress and mess the person about that was awaiting the collection.
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....
Way past the delivery schedule. And on top of that poor handling of the product. See for your self. They are partnered with tnt which is also disappointing for the fact that they purposely cancel the order and say that you they did not reach to you but in fact they didn’t come at all. I also placed signature needed but they just left the package and left. Probably to hide away from their poor handling. The bike has now scratch marks everywhere.
Poor choice of delivery company
Pack and send has a great online service portal to send parcels.
Unfortunately, they subcontract out the delivery to other companies, who in this case, is TNT couriers, who was very rough with my parcel, with bits of the box ripped off and the contents jostled around.
This review is more so aimed at TNT couriers who you should absolutely avoid, as the time it takes to deliver is also much longer than advertised.
