Default Parcel Motel gone ta fuck

Anyone else's parcels taking an age to get delivered lately? Stuff taking 2 weeks to come from UK ain't good enough. 3 parcels this week being held in the depot for 4 days before it comes to the locker.

Delivery from anything in the UK is poxy, sits in a warehouse at the docks in the UK - technically they've shipped it to Ireland. When brexit hits, wish.com will be quicker.

I can't even have a moan to them because their support structure is a template format for missing parcels.

I raised a few tickets and never got a reply. Imagine the mess itll be for the Christmas rush.

The problem is they are getting more popular and more people are using them. They can't deliver until there is an empty locker and there is no shortage of thickos not collecting their parcel for a few days. Not defending them just saying it as it it.

I used Addresspal for the first time recently. They keep it there for 5 days without any extra charge, I think. In the last few weeks Parcel Motel were slow to deliver after the'd sent me pictures of items in their warehouse. Addresspal will take stuff that can't be delivered to Norn Irn or is more expensive to be sent there which is a plus for Addresspal.

AddressPal for me too. There is no Parcel Motel locker near me and the one that was, is a pain in the arse to get to. Get to know your post office and they keep the parcels for as long as needed. Best usage for the post office

Right I just registered for DPD parcel wizard. They have a UK virtual address service too.
3.85 per delivery. It all sounds good so far!

I switched to Parcel Wizard over a year ago. No problems and they deliver to your door, so no bollixing around with lockers.

The lockers worked for me because the house is empty during working hours.
DPD will deliver to a supermarket close by. That bit sounds messy!

Ah, prob why it suits some people. I'm in a rural area, so he just leaves it round the back when I'm not there.

They sent me a photo of my parcel in their warehouse, then 4 days later they sent me a different photo of the same parcel in their warehouse, then 3 days later they told me it was too big to deliver and I had to collect it. Incompetent shower of fuckwads.

They sent me a photo of my parcel in their warehouse. That's the last I ever heard. I had to contact the seller and get a refund.

I never used ParcelMotel, just AddressPal. No problems in all the time I've been using it, but be aware that it isn't an insured service, so if something goes missing, then you are screwed.
