Comments from customers who have sent parcels from Portsmouth.
Very impressed, cheap parcel delivery, easy to use and reliable
Swift reliable service very good
Easy to use service. Will definitely use again ????????
Overall a positive experience however I was met by a very unhelpful customer service agent when i had an issue and had to contact Parcel Monkey. It was a cheap service so naturally the customer service expectation was about the same. I wasn’t told that my package had been delivered to a post office abroad and it was only when I tracked it that I discovered this. The status of my shipping was ‘told addressee that package is at PO’ or something that effect even though I paid for it to be delivered to the door (or believed that was the service I was paying for). These were the only issues. Packages arrived intact and in good condition.
So simple to use and cheaper then other companys. Also got there when it said it would. Would definitely recommend and will.use again
when contacting parcel force to check on collection and to recollect a missed collection they put me through to a branch in Glasgow when I was in Portsmouth Hampshire, they said they could not give a time or let driver know not to collect before 0930 as no one in, this seems a bit of a waste of drivers time and mine having to wait in for over 5 hrs for recollection .Once I explained that I left parcel on doorstep pick up was arranged .Surely a better system for collection and contact with drivers and customer could be viable as it would save time and make sure some one was in for collection.
