Just as there are poor couriers there are many excellent couriers out there. It's a pity we often only find time to write comments when they are gripes and moans. I'm a courier, I always knock on a door before leaving a parcel and if no one is in I will always try several neighbours and leave a...

can't tell you when you will receive

I have been using parcelnet for over a year now and they are one of the best courier services I have ever used. So what makes them better than any other? Well in the past I have used Intial City Link, White Arrow, Parcel Force and Business Express and these are not as good, usually because they...

This is a brief revew and one prompted by what sounded like a deranged parcelnet courier retorting to previous reviews . Well we have all had that feeling of frustration with our work so I hope I don't add to the aforementioned couriers stress level and push him over the edge . My only dealings...

“Can't deliver, won't deliver”

published 20/11/2005

Nil

They do not deliver, unless it suits them.

I have just written to Ryan Regan the managing director of Amazon.co.uk saying that as they now use Parcelnet I will no longer order books or DVDs from what has been my favourite book service. The reason for this decision is simply that the book I ordered recently was sent by Parcelnet rather...

Plenty

Parcelnet or companies who deliver (or rather not deliver should I say) such sub-standard and poor services without any customer services or even a customer tel. line should not have the right to exist in 21st century. Its a crime to society for net shopping companies like Top Man to still use...

None for supplier or purchaser

Incompetent to the point of dishonesty

I have never had a parcel delivered to me by Parcelnet. Not, that is, if you consider delivery to be putting the parcel safely into the hands of the addressee or to someone else at the delivery address or even to a neighbour. What I have had are parcels abandoned halfway between my front door and...

Super

Freedom, no pressure, smiling faces (mostly)

No pay rise for many years

I would like to write this as a parcelnet courier who always tries his best to make the customer feel special when they answer the door and its not always easy if you are delivering in the pouring rain and your paperwork is soaked through and you are supposed to get signatures. I cannot speak for...

Cheap!

Do use them, or any supplier who uses them!

After having one parcel left outside my front door for the better part of a day whilst a work, open to the elements and to anyone who may have wanted it. I stupidly purchased another collectable from Danbury Mint, who in themselves are a very nice company to deal with. It has now been well over a...

My Amazon parcel took a very long time to arrive from when dispatched and when it did it was left on the step and had been crushed. We were home at the time and they didn't even bother to ring the doorbell. Poor in every respect I'd say! Never had any problems with Royal Mail.

I have to say i have had a very poor and quite similar experience to many of you. This is the first time i have had any dealing with parcelnet (QVC usually use royal mail) and i really hope it is the last. Today, the courier finally tried to deliver my parcel (a week since it's dispatch date...

Living in a rural area I am very dependent on online shopping. Most companies give a delivery date which in the case of Parcelnet is never adhered to. However, this is not my gripe. My local courier leaves parcels by the field gate in full view of a busy road. I have fished parcels out of the...
