Caring customer service
Efficient, on-time delivery
Reasonably priced services
Took 2 days to pick up, but quick delivery once this happened.
My box was dropped off on a Thursday afternoon. It wasn’t picked up until Monday afternoon. But once picked up, from Perth, it was available in Sydney on Thursday afternoon. Box arrived in great condition. The tracking system was useless. When it was about to be delivered, the tracking showed as still being at Perth airport.
Very fast but didn’t get asked to sign for it even though I paid for that service
Great pick up & delivery time.
I paid for the sign on arrival service but the delivery guy knocked on the door & was walking away when I opened it.
The parcel was sitting on the doorstep 5 meters from the street & anyone could have taken it
Not advised of additional fees for processing customs at receivers end.
When parcel arrived in Latvia , receiver was told a fee was required to process through customs and pay Value Added Tax. If same items were processed through normal post (as previously sent) there would not have been any VAT nor processing fees. Only went this way as Aust Post is only doing economy email at present due to Covid19 restrictions, 2 to 3 months delivery without reducing the charge.
To give credit though the parcel arrived before expected time.
Also unable to bundle certain items as every item had to be individually inspected. This made it awkward as I was sending gifts for several families to a cousin to distribute. Once again via Aust Post only needed a declaration.
Some problems but would use again
Cost was excellent. Tracking good although text alerts would have been helpful. Speed of delivery was amazing! (Monday afternoon to Friday morning Perth to Sydney - beat that, Australia Post!) Disappointing that packing requirements and restricted items (a printer) weren't advised until during the self serve booking process so we had to review and repack everything. The options for pick up times (basically the whole day) were a bit unsatisfactory. On delivery the recipient wasn't home so goods were returned to depot for pick up where they promp...tly disappeared. They were eventually located and delivered the following day but hours were wasted by recipient when it should have been a simple exercise to go to the depot, as arranged, and pick them up. Despite these issues I would use Pack & Send again and I would recommend to others.

Fast delivery, online process restrictions could be clearer
I was really happy with the time it took to send a package to Florida. The online booking process could be clearer, especially in terms of restrictions for some items.

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
