“Theirs nothing worse”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by Elianh166 (1 review written)

My last delivery driver decided not to attempt delivery because of road construction . He claimed he couldn't get through, he lied . After calling he returned. I emailed amazon if they continued using them for me I would cancel my prime. My guess is I wasn't the only one as they stoped using DHL at least for now. Today I wait for a package from Canada and forced to depend on DHL . With such poor reviews it's a wonder their still in business… Read Full Review

Total Waste of money. They have said that they will deliver within two days from Saudi to India. But they have took more than 10 days to deliver my shipment. They are charging too much but not a valuable service. Process is as much slow as snail. Ayyappan C… Read Full Review

“Disorganize company”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by Swancity (1 review written)

I order item online from US,it should be delivered using DHL global mail to Canada and in Canada using Canada Post. When I check tracking on dhl website,it showed item received on Jun 4,whereas I placed order on Jul 6. How can it receive a month earlier? How can they make this kind of mistake? Up to now (Jul 22) haven't received the item yet. Canada post didn't get the item either. I didn't get any email or tracking number from them either. Call dhl customer service, they didn't even know… Read Full Review

“horrible courier servuce”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by NickShea126 (1 review written)

The absolute worst courier service I have dealt with. I had ordered a package and was continuously checking tracking updates. I was home on the day of delivery so was surprised to find the Waybill stuck to my door. The delivery man had not rang the doorbell or knocked on the door upon arrival, so i had no idea until checking my tracking and seeing that it had said delivered. Upon receiving the slip on my door I immediately went online and paid the Duties and Taxes and stuck the waybill back… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/07/2014

I ordered an item on Amazon so was not directly involved in choosing the company to deliver it to my address Had an e mail to tell me when it would arrive so stayed in at home. It never arrived!!! Called DHL. They told me the name of the person that had signed for the parcel on delivery. Meant nothing to me. Didn't know them.!! Rubbish service. Would never use from choice. Had problems with this company before. Had to sort my problem caused by them myself. It was delivered to someone… Read Full Review

“Worst Delivery Ever”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by atappers127 (1 review written)

I ordered somethings from Thinkgeek that used this company to ship. Thinkgeek didn't ask for a buzzer code (I live in an apartment), but apparently DHL needs it. They wouldn't deliver it without one, even though my name is on the door. When I called to give it to them I was informed that if I wasn't home to accept it, it would be sent back to a holding center an hour and a half away. There is a center in the town I live in but for some reason they have to send it 1.5 hours away. So now I have… Read Full Review

“I don't know really.. ”

Written on: 09/07/2014 by Kasonq67 (1 review written)

I live in the uk, southampton to persist. I order a product from Nume which is in the United States. I wasn't told by nume about how long my products will take to deliver to my door so I have been guessing. My order took 10 days which isn't too bad I guess, seeing as it was shipped from America to the uk. I have heard so many bad reviews which made me scared because the products in my package were fairly expensive. But luckily as soon as my brother got home, he found the person delivering it… Read Full Review

“They simply don't care about customers. ”

Written on: 24/06/2014 by Garreth Sleigh (5 reviews written)

I don't even know where to start with DHL. We had some items imported at the end of 2013 and the shipper in Japan used DHL. When the items arrived some months went past and we got a letter from Control accounts threatening to take us to court for a non payment of some tax. We literally had no emails, no letters. Nothing from DHL explaining this. We tried to contact DHL who said it was to late and we had to talk to Control accounts who wanted to put their surcharge on top of the tax bill… Read Full Review
