“I found Parcel Force Excellent”

Written on: 28/03/2014

I bought a sewing machine on ebay and it was under the terms I arrange a courier. I paid for Parcel Force and within 2 hrs it was picked up from the sellers address. The seller had packaged it exceptionally well but the box arrived without any dents etc with the stated 48hrs. They cost a bit more than other couriers but for me it was worth it… Read Full Review

“Parcel not delivered - Shame on you”

Written on: 27/03/2014 by McGee481 (1 review written)

My parcel arrived in the UK on 21 February, apparently Great Hollands depo tried to delivery it. Their excuse, they could not find the address, and second excuse there was no one home. No note in the door regarding attempted delivery. Address very clear on parcel. Lucky I managed to get the tracking number and found out my parcel was being held at Basingstoke. Now I wonder what would have happened to my goodies if I did not managed to get my parcel redelivered to my work. Not acceptable Post… Read Full Review

“a week delay for Global Priority and still no letter”

Written on: 14/03/2014 by bluedragon14 (1 review written)

My friend sent me a document from the UK to Russia by Parcelforce Global Priority. parcelforce claims on the website this delivery takes 5-6 days. 4 days after the letter was sent, a tracking entry appeared that our letter was back at the post office where it was sent from. Nobody replied to the emails sent to Customer service within 3 days, so we had to call. the calling procedure is as follows: you dial the automated service, enter your parcel no. to hear the same info as on the website… Read Full Review

“If no stars was possible, I would give it. Don't use...”

Written on: 12/03/2014 by Kiannah15 (1 review written)

Parcel force are a bunch of liars. They lied that they attempted delivery on their tracking website even though I was at home. They failed to leave a card on two occassions. They then claimed to leave my parcel with neighbours and later said my parcel was at the depot. I get different responses on the phone to them. I'm still waiting to get my parcel after 10 days and paying £20 for UK 2-day delivery. I am very disappointed… Read Full Review

“Slow at customs clearing and extortionate fees”

Written on: 28/02/2014 by gilesjuk (3 reviews written)

It takes longer for Parcel Farce to get a parcel through customs than it takes to fly it from the US to UK. They some how feel that £13.50 for this terribly slow service is justifiable. I don't mind paying more for express service, but on average 3-5 days is appalling. Always ask a company in the US to send via UPS or DHL not USPS, that way you will avoid having to deal with Parcel Force… Read Full Review

“Extortionists”

Written on: 24/02/2014 by equinoxed88 (1 review written)

Having just paid ParcelForce's 'Clearance Fee' of £8, on an imported item worth just over £8, I will never be using them again. The fee is for a service I neither requested nor agreed to. In extorting this payment from me, under the threat of not releasing the item, they have cost themselves all further business… Read Full Review

“Disgusting company!”

Written on: 19/02/2014 by absolutelynick (1 review written)

In November I paid for the recorded and signed delivery of a sold item to my ebay buyers address. I did this at my local post office. I was then contacted by the buyer of my item one week later to say that they still did not have it. My buyer had spoken to the owner of the house where the laptop was signed for, and the owner of that house does not know of any delivery and has said that they do not have the item. This to me showed an undelivered item or lost item that the parcelforce driver… Read Full Review

“Avoid like the plague”

Written on: 15/02/2014

Oh parcelforce, the service that no one wants! So far i've been lucky: nothing has been lost or given away to complete strangers, (sorry, 'delivered to neighbours' according to ParcelFarce, even though they don't check that that's the case)though i have had a few crushed packets in my time, and a 24 hour delivery which took four days. Zero apologies or compensation, of course. Good luck contacting them too! You're held a long time on the phones and don't even bother with e-mail, it'll get you… Read Full Review

“Horrible customer service”

Written on: 26/01/2014

Parcel Force had to deliver my parcel in 24h. They had it loaded in the truck ready for deliver on Friday but they didn´t bring it on Saturday. After to spend all my telephone credit and 4 calls I managed to speak with an operator. She said that I had to pay almost 15 pounds extra if I wanted it on Saturday. They offered me to bring it on Monday. I informed them that I wouldn´t be at home because I had to work so they said I could collect my parcel in the post office. When I went in the post… Read Full Review

“RUBBISH ”

Parcel force website to book collection or drop off at post office service rubbish. Beware if you pay online for your parcel to drop off at post office after printing you labels off website. website can shutdown before you print,leaving you with no labels,yet taking your payment. with no way of getting back in to site and printing. post office will not accept your parcel without those lables,and theres nothing they can do. Try ring customer services ,and you get fobbed off and told to contact… Read Full Review

“Unreliable delivery”

Written on: 18/01/2014

Using the website I requested and received a conformation number for my package to be delivered to my local post office (this service was free and automatic for convenience but now comes with a £1 charge). I waited the specified two days until the collection date I requested and the package wasn't at the post office. I called parcelforce and the package was still at the depot with no plans on delivering it to the post office. They were unable to deliver on the specified date which is… Read Full Review

“Do NOT use Parcelforce!!!”

Written on: 11/01/2014

Each time I use Parcelforce there is always a big issue with delivery. Once, send a parcel to China and it was lost for 4 months. All of the sudden it was found and returned to me once I made a claim. I also tried Parcelforce to send a very important documents to Europe (with guarantee next day delivery). It came late - after 3 days. Quite expensive mistake - cost approx £50 to send it. Now, I've been expecting my parcel that was send from Europe and no one has idea where it is???!!!… Read Full Review

“Terrible steer clear!!!”

Written on: 28/12/2013

I thought I would give them a shot, knowing they had a not so great reputation but I thought they had cleaned their act up hearing a few people saying they were ok now. Paid for a premium service, 48hr international delivery (priority) as the item I was sending was valuable, fragile and had a time limit on getting to it's destination (an RMA of some expensive electronics). I read the blurb, and it sounded good on their site, paid extra for insurance and off it went. Well, two weeks later, and… Read Full Review
