“Terrible service didn't deliver”

Written on: 30/06/2022 by Maighreadstuart (1 review written)

Currently having a major issue with no hope of a happy ending.sent client product to France using fed Ex priority. Correct address given. Fed Ex don't deliver & client very angry.speak to interparcel. I'm told address incorrect. I query with client who confirm address is correct & in fact fed ex just dropped off a parcel from another retailer an hour since and using same address info. Speak to interparcel... they tell me it must be the driver.. he may be new. After several calls, emails we get to the stage a week later fed ex have sent the parcel for pick up 3 hours from clients address. Another call &email we get it changed... system updates within 12 hours (this is important folks)and item now shown as passed to 45 mins away from clients address. I ask again for it to be delivered to client. I'm told by a lovely lady she has spoken to fed ex and it seems the number of the address was missed off the fed ex scan but is on my order form and label. We are both gobsmacked that no other interparcel employee checked this. She now confirms as its Friday parcel can't be delivered but will be on Monday 27th guaranteed! Monday... no delivery. I call to ask why. Interparceltell me system needs 48 hours to update so we will see update and delivery on Tuesday or Wednesdayas weekend doesn't count. I make a complaint .. again... I ask for a manager and I am told 'well they'll only say what I've said'. But a manager calls me and says she will personally handle the issue. She reiterates fed ex need 48 hours to update (funny that the system took 12 hours to change last time tho??) ... go forward 4 days.... still no change. I ask for a refund of postage as fed ex have never attempted delivery. The client is driving to their depot on Saturday 45 mins away to pick up the parcel. Interparcel send me an email which states

I am sorry no refund is due on the shipment, this is not covered by the money back guarantee, an attempt was made and then this was taken to the store for collection, the issue has been logged with the courier to advise an attempt was not made, but no refund is due.

So the email is wrong yet again.

I ask for the manager to call me within the hour.

I'm still sat waiting.

Interparcel and fed ex have both been paid to provide a service which they have not provided.

I now have to refund the client as this is only fair and good business practice but the cost of the courier was more than any profit on my product.

After using interparcel for over 10 years I have had 3 issues and not once have they ever admitted fault, helped solve the issue for the client so that it ends with a happy client or refunded under their supposed guarantee. I have 2 parcels destined for the USA next week which will now be going with a different courier. It means nothing to the staff at interparcel that I won't be using them again. I'm a small fish in a big pond who interparcel have little regard for.
