18 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, the online tracking has not been updated and just says in transit. 18 days! 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.
If you have successfully lost my package, have the decency to tell me. My docume...
Very Poor Handlers
Not impressed when you go to the extra effort to pack up a fragile item plus label the box FRAGILE only to receive your boxed package broken thanks to the wonderful handlers from whatever courier service Pack n Send decide to use on the day. these fool packers need to be alot more careful with peoples items i say. they couldnt give a damn.
Late, Damaged and not a care in the world.
Accurate facts only, here goes:
Order was picked up 24hrs late
First contact in Customer service was rude (I will not name her) Second contact (Chantelle) was much nicer person.
I found the item 4 days later (still not scanned in) in the sending depot
Item arrive 3 days after that and was damaged with missing items from the box.
Asked customer service to start a claim. This is yet to happen.
All this for a 1-2 days transit.
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.
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.
Didn’t pick up item so had to take it to a depo and then when it arrived it had impact damage from being dropped.
Had organised to pick up item but never picked it up, had to then be dropped off at the depo and Will not reply to my emails, new fibreglass esky ruined from incompetence.
Truly Awful Experience. Offered a service they did not provide and needlessly damaged goods.
I did not give permission to leave the turntable at my house without signature. Even though the box had clear marking indicating the top and bottom.. It was left standing on it's side, exposed to the weather on a wet day. Case of the turntable cracked and entire plate was thrown around inside and off of the motor. When looking at how the item was damaged i was dumbfounded, it seemed like they would have had to try pretty hard to break it with how well packed it was..
If someone pays more for signature delivery, you have just ripped them off by making them pay for something then ignoring the request and damaging their item.. Awful experience.. truly awful.
Do not use Adelaide East Franchise
Items purchased at Adelaide antique fair October 2019 for sending to Perth. Total lack of communication from franchise owner on status. Items lodged 18/10 were not received until 12/11 however they were damaged. Fortunately paid insurance premium however payment not received until 27/3/2020. The whole process has taken five (5) months.
Lazy service - won’t chase up with suppliers even though packages are late
I booked an interstate delivery of products from America.
Only 2/4 of the packages arrived and when I called pack and send to ask about the other two they simply stated to keep calling DHL or Couriers please cos they “didn’t know”
Instead of actually chasing this up and finding out where my items were they palmed it off to another company.
I won’t be using packnsend again... the fact I paid packnsend and they didn’t chase up with their supplier courier companies (I had to) is beyond poor service.
In summary - If I pay someone to take care of something for me and they don’t do that and get me to chase it up with the people they engaged it just makes me think why do I appoint this person
Misguided info, hidden costs, stolen items
It has been the worst experience and i really wanted to share this. I sent my personal things overseas by sea fright. Estimated time of arrival was 40days given to me. It turned into 3.5months!!
No one knew half way through where my things were, one stage when they were in Germany, they provided me german contact phone numbers to track my belongings myself, these ppl didn’t even speak English in Germany.
I constantly was asking for updates and location of my things. Also had to pay even bigger amount of money to receive my things that I payed i...
DO NOT USE!!!
Arranged a $70 service to pick up documents from a client to my office. Pick up was done but documents were not received by the 5pm deadline the next day. I had to chase it up myself this morning. Franchisee said it was because the building was closed at 4.30pm which was utter nonsense for a multi story office building in the Sydney CBD. Told me the courier would arrive soon this morning which is disappointing given I paid $70 for it to arrive the day before. They also said they do not offer a refund even though they clearly did not do what the...y were paid to do. When I asked the courier what happened when the document did arrive, he said he just did not have time to deliver it and he is only being paid $2 per delivery by his company Go Logistics!!!
