Don't use the online self service
The package wasn't picked up on the day it was supposed to. When I took my package into the office in Southport, the person there told me that the online service is nothing to do with pack and send and that it is just a platform to offer customers a discount, and then went on to tell me that because I chose a discounted rate, I shouldn't have expected the service to be reliable.
After the package was finally collected, it was delivered in a timely manner by Couriers Please. I should have booked directly with them.
Delayed but just a sign of the times. Helpfully staff at depot. Arrived with no damage. Thanks
Will use again. Very econical rates and good value.
Tracking help advised of the delay.
Good service plus a suggestion
To avoid missing his arrival, I suggest the driver phone on the day with an estimated time of pickup. I was briefly out of earshot and didn’t hear him come. A phone call would have saved him from having to come twice.
Disappointing experience (due to the carrier though)
I thought I'd give Pack & Send a go after seeing lots of good reviews (especially regarding the local franchisee). However, for convenience I just used the online service to deliver a package 25km from my home before father's day. Unfortunately for me Pack & Send used Fastway/Aramex as the carrier for this delivery. I hadn't had good experiences with Fastway in the past and you only need to check their reviews to see how consistently poor their service is. (This site alone has almost 8000 reviews averaging 1 star).
Booked the service on 30th Au...
They came a day later than they said they would to collect a parcel but other than that, a pretty good service. It only cost me $10 to send a 10kg parcel. Will use this service again.
I used the self service option and found it to be very easy to use. I was disappointed that the items were picked up a day later than indicated but from then on, everything went smoothly.
Barcodes wasn’t sent to email so courier couldn’t accept the package the following day for pickup then courier didn’t show up the day after. Parcel was then picked up after the weekend 4 days later from booking which delayed my parcel to destination.
The best part of my experience as a sender was the on line booking process. That was quick and easy. Unfortunately it went downhill from there. I selected a pickup time for the following day in the afternoon however the parcel wasn’t collected. That evening I received what appeared to be an automatic email stating it was marked for priority pickup the next day (Friday). However Friday ticked away and despite receiving assurance when I called that it would be picked up, it wasn’t. No automatic email this time so I was left wondering if pickup wo...uld be the next day or not until Monday. The drivers turned up midday Saturday so that was 48 hours after the booked window. Now I understand that couriers are under enormous pressure at the moment with lockdown and increased volumes however I just wanted some communication as to what was happening. I feel that the pickup window shouldn’t have been available for on line selection if it couldn’t be met and I would have been fine with receiving notification if the window had to change. But I had no idea when to put the parcel out on the Friday for collection or if I should even put it out on the Saturday. Luckily I did. As I said! I understand things don’t always go to plan but this service just felt disorganised and lacked customer communication. I chose P & S over the cheaper couriers however I’m sad to say I really don’t feel it was worth it at all.
9 days to travel across Melbourne? During that time we booked 2 packages for delivery with Sendle each of which was delivered within 24 hours. Say no more. Don't use Pack n Send if you want timely, reliable delivery. Also the package was left in the stairwell of a small block of apartments with only 2 flights of open-air outside stairs whereas Sendle delivered to the apartment door. Pathetic service!
Awful rude service from store and email communication
After racing my parcel down to the store on Wednesday morning (to get it to VIC in time for my friend’s birthday) it didn’t get sent from the location until 5pm the following day. Why did it sit there for over 24hrs? I asked via email and the response was, well you didn’t choose the ($245) express package so it gets sent when it gets sent. What a disgusting attitude and service.
No customer service provided
I used the online self service to send items. I waited all day for pick up, during which I made several confirmation phone calls. The driver didn’t show up & didn’t call. A day wasted. He arrived on the Monday without notice. I contacted Pack & Send & was told I didn’t have an avenue for complaint as I’d used the “self service” option. Terrible lack of service, courtesy & attitude on the last phone call. Do not recommend.
Delivery time not achieved
Package picked up on time.
Chose express option.
Advised package would arrive the following day in the morning (Wednesday am).
It arrived the the afternoon of the day after (Thursday late pm).
Package arrived in good order.
Had to chase im my package being picked up.
On the weekend i Booked package in for collection on Monday. Wednesday i had to message them to rebook in to be collected. The whole online process was easy though.
Average at best
The staff member at the Marrickville Pack&Send was both rude when I dropped off the product and when I called.
-Dropping off my product it was made to be a massive hassle for them as I didn’t have the labels already on the boxes. I had specifically rang the head office and they said it was fine to drop the product and the Marrickville site would look after it.
- I was told don’t bother calling just wait for the product to arrive.
Positive was it was a reasonable price but what should have been a same day/next day delivery took 3 day.
Very slow in delivering
I dropped off my parcel at your Marsfield office for Ashbury. In the website it said it would take 0-1 day. The parcel took 9 days to arrive in Ashbury.
