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
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
Very poor service
Booked collection for a package for local delivery
After 2 days collection didn't happen, so I dropped off the package to the local Pack and Send.
After 4 days the I checked the tracking number and the package was still was sitting at the local Pack and Send.
I called them and they were going to escalate it.
The package was finally delivered the following day.
Overall it took 1 week for a package to be delivered locally in within Melbourne.
Terribly slow and poor service.
Let down by the local agent.
I booked on Sunday for a Monday pickup. No one turned up. Waited all day Tuesday. Nothing. I phoned and was told there'd be someone there Wednesday. Nothing. I phoned again and was told that the local agent would be there on Thursday. Nothing. Pack and Send made some inquiries and I was told the local agent would pick up before 2pm Friday. The local agent finally showed at 10 minutes to 2pm. It was an extremely frustrating experience which became embarrassing for me as I couldn't give my customer any reasons for the delay. The people at the hel...p desk were great but they can only do so much. It appeared there was little support coming from the upper echelons. If not for the efforts of one help desk person who went the extra mile for me I believe the delay would've gone on into the following week. Hopefully this problem will get sorted but I doubt I'll be using Pack and Send for some time at least.
Price good, fast but
The only problem is quite lots of time parcel were not picked up on the day I booked. Well, it is troublesome coz I can’t always wait for that. If the driver can’t come should stop least message me or their route or arrangements should be better. 8 out of 10 times they didn’t come on the day I booked .
