Caring customer service
Efficient, on-time delivery
Reasonably priced services
Simple & cost effective
The process of online booking was very simple. Cost was very reasonable, much cheaper than I expected. Online tracking was helpful although package arrived three days later than eta. Still very satisfied.
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)
So good and timely, however the online tracking was an issue.
Picked up on time and delivered before it was expected, so fast. The only issue was that the online tracking was overloaded for the duration whilst the package was in transit.
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.
Took 2 days to pick up, but quick delivery once this happened.
My box was dropped off on a Thursday afternoon. It wasn’t picked up until Monday afternoon. But once picked up, from Perth, it was available in Sydney on Thursday afternoon. Box arrived in great condition. The tracking system was useless. When it was about to be delivered, the tracking showed as still being at Perth airport.
Tracking a little loose
I've used Pack & Send for a few years, but the concern I've had with most of my deliveries was tracking. My package came 5 days earlier than was suggested by the in-built tracking system this time. Previously, I've received an email at 3am to make sure I was available at 7am for delivery. I don't check emails that time of the day. But, it is an affordable way to get my belongings interstate
As buyer of this item i was reqd to arrange freight from 3000km away. First attempt at booking thru website lead to confusion on difference between selfservice and premium and i called the local packsend. My subsequent booking as self service was cancelled as i was told by call centre i needed premium. Sellers local depot told me i had to pay $60 more for pickup from seller. Booked again but pickup window was not tight enough so arranged with seller to drop at his local depot. Proceeded smoothly after that. Very disappointed with lack of clear ...and detailed information on the packsend booking web site on the difference between two modes. I wished i had gone with a different company but package arrived intact and only one day late (or was expected date time in USA time not local time?).
Very fast but didn’t get asked to sign for it even though I paid for that service
Great pick up & delivery time.
I paid for the sign on arrival service but the delivery guy knocked on the door & was walking away when I opened it.
The parcel was sitting on the doorstep 5 meters from the street & anyone could have taken it
Collected in Perth at 3pm and delivered in Canberra 11am 4 days later (including a public holiday).
The most expensive of all the quotes I received but previous reviews on here about other Courier Companies influenced my choice of Pack and Send.
The 9kg package arrived in good condition, and the contents were free from any damage. However, the tracking information was very poor, not nearly as informative as Australia Post. Pick up and delivery confirmation was all that was given.
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
Fast and competent service.
Cannot complain about the service I received. My parcel was collected on time and arrived very quickly (24 hrs after pick up travelling interstate) in perfect condition. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is the heavy restrictions for packaging required to be able to collect on insurance if that is a need.
Fast, cheap, reliable
I had an emergency package delivered from 4 hours away. Only cost $18 & it was here within 24hours. Door to door, no hastle. Their tracking system has some lag at the moment, but otherwise excellent service
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.
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.
