Excellent service the only thing I would like to see is more up to date tracking as tracking only states it has left does not give you up to date manifest depot locations
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
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.
Simple, affordable and has someone to call for support
Bought a large item and had to arrange my own courier, so booked online (self-service) with Pack&Send. Paid via Paypal and item was picked up from the seller and delivered to my address. Delivery can be tracked online, but you can speak to customer support as needed.
Excellent service, helpful staff.
The Pack N Send website and online process was easy to navigate and comprehensive. Pack N Send staff both at the local center and the online help desk were very responsive and helpful. The overall service experience was only let down by the sub-contracting carriers - the pickup was handled by TNT express, and didn't happen until the day after it was requested. The drop off was by FedEx, and the driver dropping off handled the packages very roughly, using excessive force to remove them, and spilling other packages on the ground. But overall my shipment arrived fairly quickly and undamaged, at a fair price.
affordable! Brings me new options living in regional Victoria and being able to do gumtree deals.
Yes everything was on time as said and during a pandemic as well. Tracking was a little delayed but didn’t worry me too much. Delivered to my door was great
Poor time estimate
Picked the package up when they said they would, but the 1-3 days is a flat out lie. Took 11 days from hallam, Melbourne - to Geelong. I've had packages from the UK get here quicker... Box was damaged but the internal item was packed well by the sender so was in one piece. I had also paid for signature on delivery, as it was an item worth over $400, they just dropped it at the front door. Carrier they used to pick it up in this instance was DHL.
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.
Order and pick up was smooth and as expected. The only issue is that the parcel arrived one day after the estimate due to the local distribution provider not offloading the package before travelling to the next town. I dont believe this was due to any fault of Pack & Send.
Pick up was a few days late, but in the end it was delivered to me and for a decent price, actually very happy, price was good value for the delivery distance and weight, which makes up for the long wait and no communication on the days when the item was not collected
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.
Following the day the parcel was picked up, there was absolutely zero tracking information from your carrier until the parcel arrived at its destination.
This type of silence is unacceptable. What is the point of you saying I can track the parcel when I can't. Your employee explained to me that maybe the carrier did not have the equipment to ensure a flow of information. THEN, DON'T USE THEM. They are spoiling your reputation.
I have given 1 star for prompt collection, and another star for actual delivery, but in between the service was rubbish.
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.
MISLEAD ADVERTISING 1-2days delivery PAID took 5days
Even though the package was picked up on time, and arrived in great condition.
It took 5days to deliver and we had payed for 1-2days delivery. Did not receive accurate tracking details when item arrived in country of delivery. Customer service were rude and issue was never resolved.
Delivery was a little slow - also was charged extra after item was dropped at store - would have preferred if item was checked on drop-off and informed immediately of increase in cost.
Tracking information was extremely poor - was still showing dropped off at Liverpool store after it had arrived two days later in Brisbane!
Paid extra for Signature on Delivery and yet item was just left at front door - courier didn't even bother to knock on door! If Social Distancing is their excuse then I shouldn't have been charged the extra for Signature on Delivery.
Item arrived in good condition - even with the extra charges the cost was reasonable.
Currently sitting at 8 days for a package to travel 25 minutes and now they can’t find it. Absolutely useless service! No idea how this was so hard to just get done.
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.
Waste of money
Ordered 2-3 day express service from Brisbane to Christchurch, package was picked up from Brisbane on time.
Package then sat in Auckland for two days with no contact regarding duties from UPS (pack and send sub contractor), UPS then couldnt locate the package as they had offloaded to another company. Pack and send tracking still showed as being in customs right until delivery was made on day 7.
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
The worst service I ever had
I'm the sender and reciever as it was a package that was picked up from a friend house.
I was waiting for three days in arrow every single morning and afternoon waiting for them because they were telling me the package will arrive and it never came.
Definitely the worst service I ever had.
The deliver can't even ring the interphone to check if you are at home. Do I supposed to be waiting on the street? Horrible.
No help at all at the service center, just good words without any sense.
I rang up this mob up after my local guy (Wagga Wagga,NSW) told me get a quote from Adamstown.
However few days later after getting things sorted for pick up & delivery arrangement.
A bill arrives for the delivery which is higher than quote for the job as I've written down the price on my paper while on the phone !! Plus person agreed the cost of the job while I add it up while on the phone !!
The price I've got quoted for magically rise when the bill arrives !!
Plus I get 2 different stories what the company process for the delivery !! Lack ...of standard of procedures !! No tracking Number supplied !!! So you're basically left in the dark about the whole process !! No courtesy call when the item has been picked up !! The customer who told brought the item have told me the company has picked up the item NOT Pack & Send !!! No apologies from either party !! So very poor Experience from Pack & Send for the first time customer !!! The couriers can do this half the price for the same job & quicker turnaround as well !!
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!!!
