On Thu, 27 Apr 2006 21:46:05 +0100, Charles PingI've had several bad experiences with Amtrack, next day delivery parcels not
Can anyone reccomend a good parcel/courier company for UK movements of
parcels in the 20-50KG territory?
Price rather than speed is of the essence. Stuff will be boxed not
I'm off the beaten track too!
UPS are a shower of sh*t the same old story, "we tried to deliver but
there was nobody home" on the tracking system.
Then tried phone the local depot......ex directory of course, when I
phoned the contact number it's a national call center, they then got
the local manager to call me, he didn't like it when I called his
driver a liar.
Didn't get the parcel until the next day, the driver didn't have a lot
to say for himself, he obviously knew the stink I had kicked up.
Now if I know that any supplier uses UPS in advance, I just won't
order from them unless they are willing to change couriers or use the
good old Royal Mail.
Amtrack are about the best around here.
delivered but showing delivered on their website; in each case I had to ring
the local depot and they had to contact the driver to find where it was
delivered, it was a neighbour each time but the driver didn't bother to
leave a card to mention this.
Perhaps it is down to the individual drivers more than the companies
as a whole then!
Funny how my local postie finds the place every morning, won't wake me
up on a Sat morning for signature, and chucks any other parcels in the
utility room if he can't find us around!
There's a lot to be said for that sort of local service.
