“Limping CitySprint 2014”

Written on: 18/09/2014

Far too many problems on a regular basis, despite supposedly paying for the dedicated service level at a premium, no drivers available, drivers that take on other collections en route and routinely late stressed drivers without spare tyres or a full tank of fuel. It certainly was not like this in 2013 but in 2014 it quickly became clear there is a big problem this year, month in month out despite reducing the number of engagments and using other services instead, and percervering in the hope… Read Full Review

“Far too late, too many times”

Written on: 12/09/2014 by DenisseTurner140 (1 review written)

I have had an account with Citysprint for several years. Until recently I found their service quite good, but about six months ago they started to badly miss the promised collection time. Yesterday a call booked at 12 noon had not yet been picked up at 5pm, although I had initially been told they would pick up within an hour. As my correspondent closes at 5.30pm, I suggested that Citysprint pick up and then deliver the following morning. I was told that to keep the delivery overnight they would… Read Full Review

“Never use this company again”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by Mackenzie141 (1 review written)

Ordered a item from Amazon and was informed that it would be delivered Wed 20th September. Being self employed I decided to lose a days money by staying in for the parcel, However it never came. Looked on my Amazon tracking info to be informed parcel had been lost.Contacted Amazon next morning who agreed to resend it that evening free of charge. At 19.30 still no sign so I again checked my tracking info, and shocked to see it had been delivered to completely different address! Couldn't get hold… Read Full Review

“City sprint driver,abusive and speeding over 100mph”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by Sutherland312 (1 review written)

Is it professional of your drivers to be giving members of the public abuse?..flashing to me to move into second lane..speeding at over 100mph on the a2 ..slowing down to flipthe bird and make other obsene jestures..mouthing off and swearing at me. Not only was your driver breaking the law at that speed!! he also should be pulled up by your company and given a warning about his behaviour towards a single female in a car with 2 young children in the back! Disgusting!… Read Full Review

Unfortunately I can't, unless I was giving a review solely on the friendliness of their staff... As a local courier I'd like to give them my business but I've been let down on 2 very important occasions that may have a significant impact on my business due to the negative reviews left by my customers… Read Full Review

“Second time I have been stung!!! AWFUL!”

Written on: 24/06/2014 by KennethAC (1 review written)

Here is my email to City Sprint... I arranged for a delivery last Friday to the @@@@ Theatre. It didn't arrive despite my getting a text to say it was signed for at 12.38pm that day by a gentleman by the name of Shiva. Words cannot describe how frustrated I was when the theatre manager told me that no one had buzzed with a delivery and he didn't have our equipment. We ran around frantically for hours trying to find our very expensive sound equipment but with no luck. It was to be delivered on… Read Full Review

“They don't have a clue”

Written on: 19/06/2014 by Callahan406 (1 review written)

Placed a one off delivery as I needed to get a small item to another office 30 miles away. Price quoted online then booked on the phone, then it got messy: - sent courier to the wrong address - sent a van instead of a bike - no confirmation of order sent via e-mail as promised - no confirmation of delivery - called to check delivery and told it was posted as per your request - agent took a long time to clarify the delivery as the driver couldn't speak English - finally told that they'd advised… Read Full Review

Thanks Debbie, I have spoken to them;
Additional 15% was because they sent the courier to the wrong address initially. Although I gave them the right address they seemed to think it was reasonable to bill me for this. They have now agreed to refund this, not because they think they're wrong but because they hadn't told me in advance!

The overcharge on the base price is apparently being investigated and is because the quote came from my local depot but was booked on the phone with the London office - not sure why it should be different....
They told me they're now listening to the phone call to check if I said anything that suggests I accepted the higher charge, knowingly or otherwise.

So, I'm awaiting a call back - promised same day but that was last week.

“Weekend delivery specialists that are closed at the...”

Written on: 07/06/2014 by davidfanning (1 review written)

I paid Amazon for a Friday evening delivery, the slot should have been 18:00-22:00. It never arrived, I was given no explanation, notification or information on what would happen next. I tried to call on Saturday, but the customer service line is only open during the week. So I paid for an extra fast delivery, but got a worse service that I would have if I had used Amazon Prime. Now I don't know when I will receive delivery, my weekend is spoilt, I don't know whether to have somebody wait in… Read Full Review

“Avoid at any costs”

Written on: 31/05/2014 by miloslavdivis (2 reviews written)

Useless carrier ever. Unfortunately Amazon is using them for evening deliveries during weekends. I doubt they even have been at my house, no call, no message, no card left, only on webpage I could found that they "tried delivery". Well they DIDNT TRIED AT ALL! And the best thing is you cannot call them, you cannot collect parcel anywhere because their lines are open only on weekdays and no-one is able to contact the driver. AVOID AVOID AVOID… Read Full Review

“AWFUL SERVICE”

Written on: 23/05/2014 by osHarper338 (1 review written)

I think the least you can do if you're a delivery service is let you know if you weren't able to deliver the parcel. But nope, city sprint has disappointed me for the THIRD time. When I noticed that the parcels still weren't here I tracked them, landed on their website and emailed them asking for the whereabouts. Each time they told me they can only keep the items for 3 (or 5) days and thus they have all landed back at amazon, causing me to have to pay for calling amazon costumer service for a… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional !!!”

Written on: 23/05/2014 by Patrickw285 (1 review written)

I was supposed to get a book ordered from Amazon delivered. After two weeks and no book, I decided to look into it and saw that my courier was CitySpritn. I saw that a delivery has been attempted but unsuccessfully. (Note: I order books via mail all the time and they all safely and on time reach my mail box! So this really made me wonder, how difficult has it been for my courier to take the book and place it in my postbox.)So I email them to ask when are they gonna re-deliver. To which they… Read Full Review

I ordered an item of Amazon for one day delivery on Friday. I waited all day on Saturday and no-one came.CitySprint's tacky tracking system said lost in transit. Did the driver throw it out of the window? Was it hijacked by a gang of mercanaries? The closest thing i have to my order is a picture of it on amazon… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by AdenBarrett2 (1 review written)

How can these people still be in business? They say they tried to deliver a parcel, but this could not prossibly be the case since the address is an office and has a receptionist and other staff who were definitly in attendance at the time they say they tried to deliver. Then they say that I need to arrange a delivery,however this information was not sent to me but in a deep layer of the "track a package" page on amazon. Hopeless!… Read Full Review

“Making the object is faster.”

Written on: 25/02/2014

I ordered a 3DS XL from Amazon using Evening delivery on Saturday, for delivery on Sunday. Didn't come. Monday I enquired about why, turns out it's "lost", rescheduled Evening Delivery for Tuesday. Tuesday, waited till 10PM, didn't come. Turns out it was lost again. Rescheduled with a slower delivery option just so I can get the item faster. Amazing. Stay far, far away from this garbage courier, I've had bad experiences with City Link in the past and I thought they were as bad as you could… Read Full Review

“Hi, you mention City Link in your review, which is a different company (we are CitySprint) but people often get us mixed up when writing reviews. If your review is about City Link, please let them know by re-directing it to them. However, if we can help with anything, please let us know.”
