Its 2022 and pack and send don’t think people using wheelchairs have parcels to send
I rolled my wheelchair to the nailsworth pack and send and there were steps at the entry. I called and asked for the wheelchair accessible entrance and was told the building is old and other shops like this. Although the person was helpful, don’t rent places that are inaccessible to customers and if you go ahead and rent it then ask for a wheelchair entrance. So much for ‘ There are No Limits to the solutions we can provide for you.’ as pack and send suggest.
Good experience but items broken
I found the sales staff to be helpful and I appreciated the follow ups, I also appreciated the communication and assistance of the delivery truck driver. I just have two grievances with the process.
1) Unfortunately one of our boxes had to be repacked at an additional cost as it was too heavy, we weren't initially made aware that the box weight may be an issue despite letting the sales staff know that I wasn't aware of the exact weight but I did give the box dimensions. I appreciated that pack and send assisted us in having special boxes made f...
good but somewhat inflexible.
Parcel was picked up and delivered on time, and the price was right. I had to change from dropped to depot and picked up from address (same suburb and price) however the system was inflexible and I had to cancel the first order and get a refund and rebook. Please fix this part of the system.

work with pickles auction to charge ridiculous delivery prices, and do not bother packaging for you kinda suss. Was not a nice experience paying 200$ when a courier could do it for 30$, if it was packaged
What a rip off
I had a package sent from Geelong to Adelaide. The only good thing about the experience is it was well packed & arrived the next day. The negatives , and there are plenty , the person I dealt with was at times quite rude saying he was super busy. Sorry but I fail to see how that is my problem. That I could have dealt with had it not been for the outrageous cost. For a 30kg parcel $351 when I believe it should have only cost around $170. I complained & then had some manager ring me to discuss & said he would come back to me. He rang me next day to say nothing they were prepared to do to reduce the cost.
As the headline says , a rip off. PACK & SEND way , way too expensive, there are much cheaper options around.
Melb to Brisbane
No, the boxes were to be picked up Friday between 9 and 5. TNT were to pick them up from a residence but they did not show. After me ringing I was told they had been rescheduled to Tuesday (Monday was the holiday) - no reason, no excuse but i could drop them off at their nearest office. I did that Saturday morning and emailed them that that was the option I had taken. Yes, you guessed it, TNT came on the Tuesday - too late. All then went smoothly and they were delivered Friday, knocked about but intact.

I used them for the first time and they made an unauthorised transaction mentioning the luggage exceeded the weight a week after the delivery. My father checked everything thrice and the weight was only 56 kg. Surprisingly, they claimed that the weight is 102 kg without any evidence. Unreliable company ripping off people.
No customer service
Very disappointed are the words to describe Pack and Send customer service. I was over charged for 1 box with the details on the invoice saying CORRECT WEIGHT/DIMENSIONS. 2 friendly emails later and I was not responded to after that.
Poor customer service, I will look around before booking again.
Avoid Mascot pack and send on saturdays
Friendly and professional staff during the week, but dodgy on saturday. Picked up a commercial sample from China, and was told my nsw driver’s licence wasn’t acceptable ID and the text message I received with the 4 digit pin code for collection on my mobile also wasn’t sufficient. Instead I needed to show a business card or company letterhead as my name wasn’t on the package - it is pretty easy for me to knock this up at officeworks but its not 1995 anymore - don’t need business cards being a holding company and transitioned to email a while ag...o. The bloke went out the back to get the parcel and it turned out my name was actually on the consignment note as well as the commercial shipping invoice - so the story then changed to it being filled out incorrectly by the consignor. I immediately called the consignor in china (good on him for answering his mobile at 7am local time) and put him on speaker phone who confirmed to p&s it was populated correctly with chinese dhl and declared with chinese customs, at this point the story changed again where p&s told the consignor and myself to next time enter my name in the company field and the company name in the the consignee field. The consignor explained that this amounted to a misdeclaration, so at this point the story changed again stating both company and my name needed to go into both company and consignee fields, so again more dodgy legal advice. In the end I got the parcel because he “trusted me”. Definitely no next time, never had this degree of nonsense from auspost / tnt / fedex / dhl / ups ever in the last 20+ years for any international consignments ever.
