Caring customer service
Efficient, on-time delivery
Reasonably priced services
The most horrible service I've ever used
Arranged for an item from NSW 2541. It took exactly 4 weeks to get delivered to Sydney.
I made several contacts to track the item, but rarely got updated.
Extremely poor communication, not reliable.
I should have avoided using Pack&Send. I'll never use it again.
Bad communication but very cheap and I received the packages after a 2 day delay
The packages were booked a week in advance and were picked up 2 days late after I’d canceled it. I left a message after the packages were not picked up and no one ever got back to me also because the driver didn’t buzz the apartment and the job was canceled we were concerned the goods were stolen from the apartment foyer. When I rang to confirm I was told the driver picked them up even though I’d cancelled the order so I Icancelled the cancel and the packages were delivered the next day. The cost was incredibly cheap though so the service was good value but bad communication. I’m happy they were delivered in the end.
Absolutely terrible service, courier missed pick up date by 8 days
Absolutely terrible service, courier missed pick up date so I called customer service and got an excuse. 8days later and several calls to customer service they finally cancelled the courier, and rebooked another. 14days for parcel delivery is simply not good enough, first and last time I use Pack n Send
Slow, required a lot of follow up
Booked a pick up for Wednesday, it wasn’t collected until the following Tuesday, after I called 3 times to ask what had happened. I didn’t appreciate the lateness nor the need to follow up myself. I understand that there is a leak in demand at the moment, and a 1-2 day delay was flagged on the website. I would’ve understood this if the communication had been better.
Ridiculous - don't waste your money
Package wasn't picked up for 2 weeks, despite the sender being home. The package was then passed onto 2 different delivery companies, for which I didn't receive a tracking number. I Received the package a month later than expected. Absolutely ridiculous - it's worth paying the money for a reputable company.
Mixed experience. Very disappointed customer.
I have used Pack & Send three times this year. I have always the person who organised the service and I was always the receiver.
The first two times their services were very satisfactory. The whole experience was smooth and quick without any issues at all. I was a very happy customer.
So naturally I used them again the third time. That's beginning of my nightmare.
The package wasn't picked up on the scheduled day. Organised to get it picked up on another day but I was told when I called Pack & Send that the driver went to pick it up on a diffe...
Had to call four times, took 3 attempts to even get the courier to collect the package. Then it was left in an unsafe place downstairs in the building, well after the estimated delivery date, and not at our office as instructed.
I would not use them again
This was my first time using them. I used the self service option and booked it in for a 12-5pm pickup window. The sender took the day off work. Driver never arrived. I called just before they closed and was informed sometimes they run late and to wait. Sender waited till 7:30. No communication at all. Called back following week to rebook and they insisted it is to be a whole day window even though the website gives you a time frame. Driver just showed up the next day even though I had booked for Wednesday. The booking pickup is basically worthless. Very frustrating experience not worth it try elsewhere.
Can't send electronics
Can't send electronics because: dangerous goods for online service
No TV, no computer, no console, no raspberry Pi, no mobile phone, not even components. Dangerous goods. idk. it must be because of those exploding Samsung phones.
Bouncing between Cairns and Brisbane
While the service and support from the Cairns crew was outstanding, Startrack's delivery was terrible - the parcel went from Cairns to Brisbane, then back to Cairns, before finally heading south towards Canberra. No explanation as to why; while a ticket was raised with Startrack to investigate, have heard nothing back. Took a week longer than it should, and while this is all Startrack's issue, I have no avenue to rate Startrack, so PackSend receives some of the ire.
Failed to pickup
Failed to pick up twice with no communication or notes left at collection address. I had to chase the progress and mess the person about that was awaiting the collection.
Delivey was very late (nearly a month), had to make alot of calls to find out where it was and chase it up and no one ever called be back (4 times i was told i would be called back) the 5th time i spoke with a manager and she did return my call.
Over all vey poor service and i will not use pack & send again.
Delivery dates provided were wrong twice, even when the second one was meant to be for the following day. Phone numbers don’t get answered. When I did get through the person couldn’t “see” my item details. It was only delivered finally after multiple phone calls, even though the store was 10 minutes away. Was the package sitting around the shelf while people looked at it!
Poor Service and poor response
If I could give minus 5 stars I would. My parcel was sent Dec 4 th from Sydney to Perth. Due Dec 9, 2020. Never arrived, tracking was useless so was customer service. My daughter called and was then told it would arrive on the Monday 15 th December, Nothing. Tracking was useless, we couldn't see where the package was. It took another week before we could find out where package was and it was still in Sydney!!!
They said clearly when we had package picked up it would be 5 days. Later they claim Covid and Xmas delays. Unacceptable. We kept tryi...ng to track and ask when will package arrive and were told on Dec 22 it would be by COB Dec 23. However nothing came and they said then close of business Dec 24. Nothing. I tried again follow up on Dec 27 and was told it was coming.......when next Xmas next year??? By Dec 29 still no response and no package. Called again on Dec 30 they said they would expedite to management. What management? Package finally arrived January 6 th 2021, more than 30 days after sending. I wouldn't use them again..............unreliable!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Some good, a lot of bad
Booking was easy
customer service were available and helpful when the first pick up never happened, and when I needed assistance at store.
Pick up date was missed first time, had to call and get a 2nd one, at which point the pick up had happened without a schedule - I guess this was lucky there was somebody there.
lack of information from the actual courier, just a cryptic email stating pick up may not have happened.
I paid for signed delivery, I waited for delivery, it didn't happen. Apparently signed delivery is not personal.
9-5 customer service, not available when I realized I did not have my package yet....
