Pretty poor service
Did the full online registration of package and payment, printed off labels, did all the paperwork and package was due to be collected between Midday & 5pm, and was never collected. And still not collectyed the whole next day. Had to end up dropping it to a depot, who seemed to not want to have a lot to do with it, as it was for "Startrack" but eventually said I could leave it for them to collect. First time I've used this service - Not a glowing endorsement for service here.
Very slow to pick up
It took almost 3 weeks for the package to get picked up. delivery time after that was surprisingly good.
Support staff were courteous but I got promises several times that I don’t believe were acted on.
I may try one more time but pick up had to improve.
Our box arrived at its destination as a soggy mess.
Somewhere along the line it got very wet.
Please come back to me on this issue. Thanks - Andrew
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.
They tell you your parcel will be delivered the next day. Doesn't turn up 5 days later!!! I was the sender and my customer was very unhappy with me considering it was only being delivered 40 mins away.
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.
Parcel not picked up for over a week
Our parcel was not picked up for over a week, this is not the first time but will be the last time we have
Pack N Send use to be a great service and the courier that collects is great but there is a issue with online booking and getting the goods picked up. Very unrealiable
OK if you're willing to wait 5 days after the pick up time
No communication from the driver or co that they weren't going to make the pick up time, nor the next day. I would have been OK if I'd received notification, but I'd taken time off work and was stuck at home for two days with not so much as a whisper. I had to reorganise a time with them, for 4 days later, with no guarantee that it would be picked up then either.
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.
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.
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.
Took me 3 days to get their agent to pick up the parcel. 3 days hanging around as you have to be there.
3 days with zero communication from their agent (Couriers Please)
