Caring customer service
Efficient, on-time delivery
Reasonably priced services
Affordable Service - Not the best technology
The online self-service was user friendly and affordable. However, when the parcel was picked up and for several hours after, the status on the tracking link was not updated. I had to send an email to confirm the pick up of the parcel. Moreover, customer service were not able to give me an ETA. Furthermore, although I paid for a signature, my parcel was left in front of my door (understandably, this is due to the pandemic; however, the online service should note that)
Is just OK. Doesnt appear to be managed.
Competition of the booking form is a bit painful. Why can it not remember past common records? The tool is not updated inline with tracking. Most of my bookings show undelivered still.
Great work, goods were delivered and well looked after!
Delivery wasn’t within expressed delivery time but understand that it was a regional and interstate route. Glad the goods were delivered with no damage. Shawna from customer service was helpful with updates on tracking information.
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.
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.
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.
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.
