Seen a drop-off in service recently

published

We love our local Pack & Send franchise for complicated items but also use their online self-fulfillment. This used to be fairly reliable, however it now takes 1-2 weeks to get items picked up and multiple follow-ups. These generally aren't cheap parcels - $100-$250 freight and it can be frustrating to have to put in multiple calls and emails to get something organised.

As a follow-up feedback, it's also how Packsend handles these kind of followups. We use other shipping consolidators who will proactively chase missed pickups. With Packsend I have to annoy your CS staff into following it up each time.

They used Fastway.

published

They used "Fastway Couriers" who would have to be the worst courier company in Australia.

My parcel was tagged as "undelivered waiting further instructions" in Melbourne 3 days into a standard 1-2 day delivery to NSW.
Was finally delivered to correct NSW address 3 days after I called to ask "why it’s saying undelivered in Melbourne".

Dear Pack and Send, if you want great ratings I suggest you drop Fastway Couriers who are the worst courier company in Australia (possibly Earth).

Picked up package 2 days late

published

The courier didn't show up on the day we scheduled. We got a very vague and unhelpful automated email apologising for the delay.

This was very inconvenient as we couldn't easily facilitate pickup on other days - we had to leave the package (which was moderately valuable) outside. Recommend dropping off at depot if you can.

The guy on the phone didn't know which day the courier would arrive or how to reschedule.

Package arrived promptly and in one piece once it was picked up though, no complaints there.

Can covid stop being an excuse?!

published

Booking online was easy
Having the parcel picked up was convenient
Transit time were atrocious
Age old excuse of covid effecting shipping times
Was told 3-4 business days for interstate delivery, with COVID adding possibly another 2.
It took 8 business days….

Barcodes wasn’t sent to email so courier couldn’t accept the package the following day for pickup then courier didn’t show up the day after. Parcel was then picked up after the weekend 4 days later from booking which delayed my parcel to destination.

Average at best

published

The staff member at the Marrickville Pack&Send was both rude when I dropped off the product and when I called.

-Dropping off my product it was made to be a massive hassle for them as I didn’t have the labels already on the boxes. I had specifically rang the head office and they said it was fine to drop the product and the Marrickville site would look after it.
- I was told don’t bother calling just wait for the product to arrive.

Positive was it was a reasonable price but what should have been a same day/next day delivery took 3 day.

Online quoting and pricing good but customer service in drop off center poor!

published

Quick and easy to quote and purchase online, but service i received in the drop off center was poor. My box had a slight bow in the cardboard (2cm) which I was charged an additional $20 for but this bow was simply from lying on its side in my car, which would have been easily fixed if I was allowed to use some of their tape.

Courier Late by 1 day

published

This Package was picked up one day late and delivered the following day after pick up. In terms of the service it was fine but the pick up window being between 9 am and 5 pm meant I couldn’t leave the house for two days. There were no updates or tracking information available for pick up either which was annoying

Courier was unreliable.

published

Courier was suppose to come tuesday, took a day off work, they didnt come. Had to take another day off on the wednesday only for them to come to the door, see no parcel and leave.

Got an email saying there was no goods, although I had left on the instructions to ring the door bell. So had to end up going to the centre to drop off the parcel after 2 days off.
