Great way to send.. however
Great service given on the phone and at the pack and send centres..
the problem is I paid for sign for delivery and insurance option but the item was simply left at the delivery location at the clients door unsigned and exposed to potential theft. Just not good enough
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.
Arrived quickly once it was picked up
I organised on a Sunday for the parcel to be picked up on the Monday from 4169 and sent to 2479. I did this online. The parcel wasn't picked up on the Monday so I ran them on the Monday evening. They had to redo the booking. The parcel was picked up on the Tuesday around 11am and was delivered to 2479 24 hours later. The actual delivery time was good, but was disappointed about pickup as I couldn't have a shower or go out as didn't want to miss the courier.
Very quick and great value
I had the package picked up from Perth on a Friday and delivered to Sydney on Monday. Very quick turnaround. I did have to contact customer service though because the driver didn't pick up on the originally planned Wednesday.
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...
Fast delivery, Poor management
Package was picked up and deivered quickly. However, received email from local store after package had arrived interstate to say delivery had been cancelled because package contained batteries; this was incorrect. Caused much anxiety.
Very happy with service, faster than I was told.
Fast arrived before time, only thing tracking was off and it would have been good if notification via sms could have been up to date. As package was outside unattended.
package was picked up on time and tracking that worked properly. I done the self serve and it was very easy to do. I will definitely use pack and send again .
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 .
Did the job well
Staff were helpful, and helped label my package properly without charge. Store conveniently located and open for long enough for me to get there without taking time out of my full time job.
May as well use AusPost
The parcel was not picked up on time. Despite being promised a same-day pick-up, it was picked up nearly two days late.
The staff on the phone were helpful and polite.
The online booking system was very easy and simple to use, with competitive rates. However, unlikely to use in the future.
Website easy to use, affordable and fairly good service
Apart from the Courier not collecting the packages on time (4 days late!) the overall service I received was really good. The packages were delivered interstate the very next day though - faster than expected!
Overall, a good experience
The initial contact with the staff was not too helpful, but on my 2nd call to them, it was a much better experience. The parcel was delivered within the time frame given. Overall, a good experience.
Parcel left Redland Bay at midday and was delivered early the following morning into Sydney. The only problem was a system problem ie could not change Hurstville Grove to Hurstville
Good to deal with but poor choice of delivery partners.
Good to deal with.
BUT I was extremely disappointed that the on-line booking service defaulted to Couriers Please who are always worse than dreadful and the reason I went to P&S in the first place was so I didn't have to use CP. There is no indication of this is going to happen until the packing labels pops out of your printer which is annoying and too late as you've paid the fee and accepted the Futile Booking charge for cancellations (some would argue that sending anything by Couriers Please is futile - but that's a different story).
P&S s...hould be more up-front about who they are intending to use for your package. It makes a difference (this package was predictably many days overdue and impossible to track which was the fault of CP not P&S - hence 3 stars not the 1 star review Couriers Please deserve) but sadly until P&S can provide me some way to ensure my parcels aren't handled by Couriers Please (I would have paid extra for a more reputable courier but was never given the option) I will probably be forced to use someone else despite James at West Ryde providing great service, sympathetic to my concerns, and offering to help me with future deliveries directly - but not via the on-line booking system (which I really need to use for convenience). This seems like an easy fix - just give option A, B, C on the website and let the customer decide. Maybe this is a change to look forward to and I'd come back if that was to happen.
