Not helpful at all
Got a quote online and when I rang to ask about dropping it off he said the price was double and that the price quoted was a self service price and not for them to arrange the delivery.
Also the package was not 10 cm but was 11in some places ( not all ). and so they charged more for the delivery.
Service is fine but the gentleman who runs the show is not very helpful at all and was not forthcoming on how to get it to the destination for the best price. I told him the piece was worth $150 and he quoted $360 for packaging and delivery so I booked...
Would never use them again. Failed to pick up twice (took 2 phone calls) then package arrived a week late.
Booked in the job on Nov 10th, pickup was stated for November 11th from Bright, Vic to Brunswick, Melbourne, and the package was not picked up on the day Pack and Send specified. I called later that day to enquire and the operator said they would pick up the next morning (12th), which also didn't happen. I called again to rearrange the pickup and they said they would escalate. the Saturday morning the package was collected (13th).
Tracking shows that the package was sent from Bright Vic, to Albury NSW on the 15th where it was stuck for a week w...
I booked and paid online and agreed to deliver the parcel to the Capalaba depot for dispatch to Sydney. The reason I used Pack and Send was because online they said the parcel would be delivered in three days. The tracking information showed that the parcel did not leave Brisbane until four days after I dropped it off at Capalaba. It was not delivered until a week later. VERY disappointing.
Picked up a day late, no biggie. Item then went to their subcontractor, where tracking said it was in the depot 40 days. Then said it was lost, wouldn't take responsibility. I've found it since. Do not go with this mob, not worth it. Go elsewhere and get transit insurance. Never again.
Won’t be using their services again.
The pickup was timely and easy. It said it would be there within a week, and it took a month. I got a really hard time from my client who missed out on a job opportunity because his parcel was so late.
4 weeks to send and deliver something and another week to follow up. Ended up ringing the actual courier myself because I didn’t get an answer from them at all
No stars for service. Parcel took 16 days to travel about 150kms. Parcel was thrown over the front fence and damaged. Very disappointed in this company and will not use them again.
Didn't arrive on time, delayed a lot, anyway I got my bags. They communicated time to time. I am ok with the service but not happy. Will send next time as well.
It took a week to be picked up and another 2 weeks to arrive. Service was terrible and is really a snail type delivery service. I would not use them again.
Not picked up.
Package wasn't picked up on day booked for. After I dropped it off at third party Depo it did arrive fairly quickly though. Next time I'll just drop it off.
I sent a 4 kg package to Indonesia containing birthday gifts such as children’s toys and clothes. On arrival in Indonesia my relatives was billed $250 to collect the item despite fact that I had fully paid for the item here in Sydney. That amount is the amount of a months salary in Lombok. It’s disgusting that this was never brought to my attention, I understand that this may be customs charges but I’ve previously sent gifts to Indonesia with Australia Post and the receiver has only paid a few dollars. Now my shipment has been abandoned in Lombok because no one can afford to pay this charge. My neice cannot get her birthday gifts I’ve wasted the money I spent plus the shipping fee of $150. Bitterly disappointed. DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE.
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.
Delivered to the next door neighbours gutter?
Package was collected in a timely manner by a friendly person.
On the delivery end I received a call to notify me that the neighbour had found the package; a large roll of Apholstery leather, in his drain half way up the driveway.
So not only did the deliver to the wrong address, they didn’t even bother taking it to the door.
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.
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...

Thank you for getting back to me im also wondering if you have any partner in Germany as well
Sorry Alex, no we do not have partners in Germany.
Would anyone be able to tell me what partner couriers Pack & Send use in South Africa to deliver parcels once they arrive there? Do they have their own staff/drivers, or do they use a local company? Thanks
