“Pathetic Service. Pathetic Excuses.”

Written on: 16/08/2016 by JohnEddleston (1 review written)

I was out and had a card saying that my parcel had been dropped off at my "local" post office. The idiot who tried to deliver wrote the tracking number down incorrectly and didn't bother to give the address of the post office. He gave a postcode! Traced the office which is over a mile from my home. There is a post office less than 20 yards away but the excuse was that he wasn't going that way. What a shower. If you have a complaint about their awful service don't bother to do it through… Read Full Review

“Beware of Many Items Excluded from Compensation Cover.”

Written on: 11/08/2016 by WediSyffeduGydaCwmniauCachlyd (1 review written)

Sellers beware - antiques, glass, ceramics, laptops, musical instruments, clocks, cases etc are NOT covered for compensation in the event of damage or loss at Parcelfarce's hands, no matter how well you pack your items and label them fragile. You are expected to search for the information rather than it's being prominently displayed on their website or in a post office. The 'enhanced cover' for these items is worthless - your item may be worth £50 or £5000 - in the event of damage or loss to… Read Full Review

“Joke of a company!”

Written on: 12/07/2016 by paulinap (1 review written)

TL;DR: 0/anything review, they have one job to do which is too difficult for them. There's no way to truly describe how awful Parcelforce is as a company and how atrocious their service is. Out of numerous incidents I had with them (and every time I had a delivery with them it was not out of my own choice - it's because they seem to have some sort of monopoly on EMS parcels from abroad) the most spectacular mess up of them all. I had an EMS delivery - they're supposed to take up to 10 working… Read Full Review

“no show”

Written on: 23/06/2016 by AndreasWalton298 (1 review written)

Was supposed to have a delivery on 21 June and get a txt before delivery. Took a day off work. No txt. Rang them and spoke to a very rude member of staff who informed me it would be the 22nd and blamed the company I ordered from. Not the first time I've had problems with parcel force. aVoid at all costs… Read Full Review

“No communications at all!”

Written on: 15/06/2016

I've wasted days waiting in for deliveries. Even though they supply you with a tracking number and have a simple looking online tracking set up - the reality is that you have no real communications with them. My item didn't get delivered on the day that I reschedule it to even though I received an automated confirmation phone text which is of course useless and seems to have no relation to whoever is delivering the item. No communications in the form or a card has ever been left even if they… Read Full Review

“Failed to deliver three times”

Written on: 05/06/2016 by NashMunoz (1 review written)

Just a simple delivery from B&Q. Should have been next day. Nothing. Rang B&Q (25 minutes to get through) who then said they couldn't get a reply from Parcelforce and gave me their number and tracking ID. Rang Parcel force who said it was common that the delivery label falls off - yeah right. Rang B&Q after it failed to arrive again (another 25 minutes to get through) who then then said they would send out another item for special Saturday delivery. Item didn't arrive again. This time… Read Full Review

Express24 service at £5.75 1st attempt failed and driver did not leave a card. 2nd attempt failed with parcel loaded onto van and then back to depot, no attempt to deliver, so no card - have to call - no explanation.

Had a missed delivery due to seller giving them the wrong address. Error corrected same day by the seller, who contacted parcel force giving the correct address and were given new parcel ID / tracking numnber and a new delivery date was set. Duly wasted yet another whole day waiting in, and Zilch. Checked Tracking, and saw that. a) Despite having been given the correct delivery info, they sent it from there depot, and tried yet again to deliver it to the wrong address. b) I now see that my… Read Full Review

“Useless - avoid this company”

Written on: 28/05/2016 by Johng7swz (1 review written)

Tracking info said parcel out for delivery at 08:43 depot about 20 miles away. 15:00 no sign of parcel called Parcelforce - on hold for 35 minutes waiting for an agent to be available then they terminated the call. Called Parcelforce again at 16:30 - helpful lady said she would contact the depot, get them to call the driver and then ring to update me. All this time the tracking info showed out for delivery. 18:51 (they supposedly deliver until 19:00) called local depot. Lady said "it's out for… Read Full Review

Johng7Swz's Response to Johng7swz's Review

Written on: 31/05/2016

Further update.
Having told them that a delivery today would not be acceptable and having agreed they would return the parcel to the sender. Instead they tried to deliver today and they continue to lie to cover up the ir incompetence and their lack of customer care. The tracking record now shows 31/05 14:53 attempted delivery - refused by addressee. At 14:53 today no one was at the house to refuse delivery - my wife and I were 166 miles away. THESE PEOPLE CANNOT BE TRUSTED - DO NOT USE THEM!!!

“Rude couriers”

Written on: 26/05/2016

The couriers are very rude. A guy just came to deliver a package and snatched it away when I tried to see who it was addressed to. Worst people skills I have ever encountered. That joined with the three parcels they have lost from SA makes this the WORST service ever. I try to avoid as much as possible but sometimes have no option who the sender decides to use… Read Full Review

“They deserve minus stars ”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by rossijessecar (1 review written)

Extremely incompetent on so many levels. Had to chase up on numerous occasions with Parcelforce - never received a ticket slip, a letter or any information pertaining to my package. Meanwhile, it sat at the depot for over a week without my knowledge. Once I chased up, I paid the extortionate custom charges fees, they told me that it would be delivered next day. Only to be told the next day (i had to contact them again, mind you) that they simply didn't have time to deliver my parcel. They did… Read Full Review

“Liars”

Written on: 22/04/2016 by willemdb (2 reviews written)

My parcel was delivered nearly 2 weeks late, after the contents had gone out of date. I tried having it redelivered by booking a specific day on their website on the same day as their apparent original delivery attempt. They made false claims about contacting me and claimed to have tried redelivery on dates which I did not specify. They also refused to let me check the contents before accepting delivery, even though their customer support staff said this would not be a problem. Avoid these… Read Full Review

“Illegible tracking number left on card.”

Written on: 19/04/2016 by 21Howell (1 review written)

I think this speaks for itself. If there's one thing that's important so that one can have a re-delivery, THIS IS IT! Once again, had to phone them (no freephone!) to get the info. to arrange re-delivery. What's so difficult about writing clearly? Stayed in a whole day 2 weeks ago waiting for another package which I was told would be delivered on that day..... which wasn't. I'll stick to RM in future who keep packages at my local sorting office (5 mins. away). I can uplift directly if I'm not… Read Full Review
