    Express shipment to California

    My parcel arrived in California in perfect condition in just five days, which is the quickest delivery time I've ever experienced from a carrier. However, the whole process was kind of messed up. You see, my friend in California doesn't have a regular address, just a PO Box number. Your system couldn't handle that. After a few failed attempts, we managed to find a workaround with a different address.
    To make things worse, the system automatically scheduled a pick-up from my friend as well as a delivery, even though I never arranged for that. I was notified about this via email. I tried multiple times to cancel this unwanted pick-up, but no luck. I also couldn't find a contact number to speak to someone for help. It's a shame because I actually wanted to use your service again.

    International shipping of samples

    I must say, the international shipping service for samples is absolutely top-notch. I've been using it quite often and I haven't been let down yet. My parcels consistently arrive safe and sound, right on schedule, which is vital for my business. The customer service is truly exceptional, particularly Ameer Wagner who always goes the extra mile to guarantee a seamless shipping experience. His regular updates, assistance, and communication really instil trust in me to keep using this service time and time again. Ameer, I can't thank you enough for your outstanding support.

    International parcel delivery

    I was really pleased with the service I received from ParcelCompare for my recent international parcel delivery. Everything from placing the order to receiving the delivery went beyond what I was expecting. The website was easy to use and navigate, which made it simple for me to enter all the required information for my shipment. I was impressed by the variety of delivery options I had to choose from, so I could pick the one that suited me best. The tracking feature was great as it allowed me to keep an eye on my parcel throughout its journey and gave me peace of mind.

    Large parcel containing 3 fishing rods

    I was really impressed with the service I got from ParcelCompare. I had to send a big parcel with 3 fishing rods from Notts to the Isle of Wight, and I couldn't believe how fast it got there - less than 24 hours! All thanks to UPS, the courier company I found on ParcelCompare's website. Booking and tracking the parcel online was super easy and made everything so stress-free. I'd definitely recommend ParcelCompare to anyone who needs a fast and reliable delivery service.

    Parcelcompare damaged my parcel, disposed of it and refuse to refund

    I had sent 2 parcels with personal belongings (aquarium + accessories, guitar, sports gear) from the UK to Austria and the recipient (my husband) received an SMS saying we needed to pay taxes+import duties+admin fee of € 127.00 by 27/05.

    After we refused to pay, both parcels were returned to the UK, with only one of them being delivered (the guitar + sports gear) and the other one (fishtank + accessories) missing.

    On June 3rd, ParcelCompare sent an email to me and my husband (recipient) that the parcel (fishtank + accessories) has been delivered to him. It obviously wasn’t.

    The DPD app kept saying the parcel was either on its way, or they missed me, or they returned it to the depot etc.

    After talking to multiple customer service agents, I accidentally find out that in their system my parcel is under ‘broken and disposed’. No one notified me about that.

    My parcel is insured and I wanted to get a refund, sent an Excel spreadsheet with a list of items and prices, a PDF document with the invoices, as well as a couple of pictures of the parcel prior to its collection.

    ParcelCompare are unwilling to refund, saying that it’s basically all my fault, that my items were not professionally packed, that they are on the compensations exclusions list etc.

    Now I have lost both – the money for the shipment £68.69, as my parcels had never reached Austria, and the content of the parcel which amounts to over £360.

    International parcel delivery

    The process of booking my international parcel delivery was easy and straightforward. However, I found that the pricing was a bit steep compared to other options out there. I was happy with how quickly my parcel was collected, as it was picked up within an hour of making the booking. Unfortunately, when it came to the delivery day, I received an email saying that there was no one available to sign for the parcel, even though it was being returned to a warehouse on a weekday morning. This led to unnecessary stress as I tried to sort it out, only to realise that the email had been sent to me by mistake. In the end, the service got the job done but there was definitely room for improvement.

    Shipping service

    I had a great experience with the shipping service. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow, which helped me a lot. I could easily see all the options available and choose the one that worked best for me. The package was collected and delivered quicker than I thought, which was nice. I also liked that they kept me updated with notifications about the delivery. I would definitely recommend this shipping service to anyone.

    Great and fast service

    My father and I are a big fan of ParcelCompare, I know this parceling process to another country or even city is so hassle-filled. it consumes so much time and money, also i get so worried until i get the courier on its correct place. However, ParcelCompare is a great option no matter where i am parceling my stuff, they are damn good what they are doing and i am really happy with their service.

    and you are their mate?!

    Your post really made laugh Kylie. 'Great and fast service'?! Perhaps in your dreams.

    I am trying to get in touch with Parcelcompare. Anyone got a TELEPHONE Number. I have tried searching for one, but there is nothing.

    The worst service I have ever seen in my life. 0 Stars

    A clear scam - avoid at all costs! they pre-authorise access to your payment details and then conveniently help themselves to money from your bank account on the basis that you understated the dimensions despite you showing otherwise with evidence. Avoid these crooks at all costs!

    FRAUD SCAM FRAUD SCAM. Lewis Enfield (made up name) should be arrested. Why are Trading Standards not investigating?

    This company is SCAM !!! Where is my money ??? Why you exisiting ??

    ParcelCompare are the worst company I have ever dealt with. No customer service. They've lost my package and seem totally indifferent.

    Pay your money and receive absolutely no service.

    Reported to trading standards , Which, Action Fraud and.BBC Watchdog, others should do the same

    Total crooks. Gave complete details of parcel (size and weight) paid asked amount over a month later took the fee + extra. Still trying to contact them but to no avail.

    Scam just avoid.

    This company is a scam. I have reported them. I think it takes a lot to stop them trading. Buyer beware. Very cunning strategies to look like the real deal, take your money and run

    Parcel arrived early in USA

    Oh my goodness, I can't believe it, my package actually made it to the USA early, all thanks to Parcel Compare and UPS! It was meant to arrive on the 31st of May, but it got there a whole 2 days ahead of schedule. My friend was absolutely thrilled and I was pleasantly surprised. Huge thanks for the speedy delivery, UPS and Parcel Compare! You guys are awesome!

    Delivery of haircare and candles to Singapore

    ABSOLUTE SCAM! AVOID AT ALL COSTS. This company will not payout. We had an adequately packaged parcel sent to Singapore which arrived completely battered and damaged. The company did not entertain offering any compensation even though we purchased the additional 'parcel protect'. Complete fraudsters and not sure how they are able to get away with carrying out business. Will be complaining to trading standards as they need to cease trading.

    Simple booking, collection issues

    I thought I was being clever by booking my collection with Parcel Compare, but it turned into a nightmare when FedEx didn't get the collection request. I had to go through a lot just to contact Parcel Compare to find out what went wrong. It was so stressful! And then, to make things worse, when they finally collected the package, they asked for ID, which I assumed was sorted when I made the booking. It was not a good experience and has definitely made me hesitate about using this service again.

    Parcel booking disappointment

    I had a bit of a nightmare recently with booking a parcel collection online. I had arranged for my parcel to be collected on a Monday and waited all day for the courier to show up, but they never did. I tried to get in touch with the company, but I never got a response. The website kept saying my parcel was still uncollected, which was really annoying and made me feel like they weren't taking any responsibility. In the end, I had to cancel the collection at an extra cost and use a different courier service for collection, which ended up costing me even more. The whole thing has made me doubt the website's credibility and the quality of their services.

    Parcel delivery took longer than expected

    I ordered something online and the Parcel delivery said it would come the next day. But it actually took two days because the drop off time was later than the website had mentioned. It's all good though, because my package arrived in the end, no worries.

    International parcel delivery

    I recently used a parcel delivery service with this company to send a parcel internationally. I gave them the correct weight and dimensions of the package, booked UPS delivery on their site, and paid the delivery charges as required. However, 10 days later, a large amount of money was unexpectedly taken from my account without warning. When I asked about it, they said the dimensions I provided were wrong. I asked for proof of the error, but they wanted me to provide evidence, which seemed unfair because who takes photos of their parcel before sending it? I had problems with their lack of clear information and communication throughout the whole process. I strongly recommend not using this service. It took me more than a month of persistent chasing with both UPS and the company, but I eventually got a refund for the extra money they took.

    Parcel delivery

    My parcel came six days earlier than I thought it would, all thanks to ParcelCompare. Using the service was a breeze and the prices were way cheaper than the post office. I'll certainly be using this service more often in the future. Thanks a lot!

    My parcel got returned and I got charged extra

    You know what, my package got sent back to me for absolutely no reason, and on top of that, they tacked on extra fees with no explanation whatsoever. I tried to have a chat with them about it, but they were totally unhelpful. All they did was tell me I had to pay again for another transaction. It was seriously frustrating, and I've decided I'm never going to use their services again.

    My parcel wasn't collected no matter what!

    They didn't even bother to pick up my parcel even though I was at home. They didn't call or message me, nothing at all! And then they had the nerve to say it was uncollected and wanted to charge me for rebooking. It's just not cool at all.

    International parcel delivery

    I was really happy with the international parcel delivery service I got from this company. The price was just right and the parcels arrived in the USA a lot faster than I thought they would. The whole thing went really smoothly, from ordering to tracking the delivery. I'll definitely use this service again in the future.
