Good concept. Except these are based in corner shops and the guy I went to was as miserable as sin because I was holding up the queue in the shop. I wouldn't trust them with anything breakable.
#2
Has anyone used the service before? How did it go.


They cover NI too, so that would easily be the cheapest parcel option to or from NI.

Cheers, Des.

Thanks for the feedback!! The concept & price seem positive might give them a try and see how I get on.

Cheers, Des.

so this is acctually you have to take your parcels to the collect store and the recipient have to collect it from the collect store in their area? pls advice if im wrong.

dont think buyers will be happy with this if they hv to collect themselves.
#5
No you take the parcel to the shop they give you a receipt and a tracking number and the parcel get delivered by HDN (Home Delivery Network) with a guaranteed signature. It is a brand new system that many of the shops don't understand yet.

Not for £3.99 they don't

5. The Recipient collects it when it suits them

Wrong, the parcels are collected from the store and delivered to a store near to the recipient. They have to then go and collect it. This is not a home delivery sevice.

Really useful info - will give it a go, turns out my nearest depot is two streets away, much better than hanging around the PO all day! Heat added.

Is there any insurance included? Can't find anything about it.

Thanks - better than recorded delivery but not as good as Special Delivery or 'normal' couriers.
#13
Sounds like this might come in handy.
#14
So they don't actually have there own stores they use local shops? Sounds like a much nicer idea as going two minutes up the road is a hell of a lot better than going to the Royal Mail sorting office to wait in a half hour queue. Though how do you know that the people behind the counter at the local shop know what you're asking for (they're not always the brightest bunch!)
#15
Sounds good, anything to bring down prices!
#16
Might be handy for sending stuff to my son while he is at Uni like food parcels with non perishables seems his closest will be about a mile away and mine the same have bookmarked it anyway in case I need it


some customers may not like collecting parcels but others may, if it was a postage option and a few quid cheaper I might choose it :thumbsup:
#17
not convinced... Royal Mail offers a bit more privacy than the local corner store.
banned#18
good one
#19
This sounds ok if you dont mind your parcel going in a sweetshop and the being sent to another sweetshop. I like my post coming to my home you get what you pay for.:?
#20
Just had a look at the site and the nearest shop is 0.86 miles away - not bad. Bookmarking and adding heat

That's if someone at Royal Mail doesn't steal it. Or at the very least open it to see if it's worth stealing.
#22
great thanks :)
#23
Not a bad idea, but more collect+ locations are needed.

The closest to me is 3 miles away, not in a very nice area, and part of a londis shop.......so i would expect it to take a while to get served, and a smile will be unlikely.

If this service takes off the queues will likely end up being longer than queing at the post office anyway, due to most newsagents being 1-2 person manned at most times anyway.

The price is currently very good - but is this to continue at £3.99 or will it jump up?
#24
The website says that there are currently 2000 stores that it uses, but will be increasing to 4500 stores by the end of the year. Not bad!
#25
just booked a parcel with them, will let you know how it goes
#26
price looks good.. i question the quality of the service.. if they are using home delivery network to deliver then i'd stay clear.. often they just leave parcels lying around on the doorstep or they come damaged..

Personally i'd use [url]www.p4d.co.uk[/url] .. they've just reduced their prices.. i think it's £7 door to door using DHL 48.

Newbold - how did you find out about this service?
#29
Useless for me nearest is 4.87 miles and that totally in the wrong direction the next convenient one, if you can call it convenient is about 10 miles.
Great for some though, more postal options are always a bonus.

And who's to say these won't do the same ? , Royal mail get bad press but ive never had one single problem with them ever. Ive had Home Delivery Network deliver my parcels to the wrong road and left on my doorstep when im out for anyone to take.
#31
HOT! Interesting concept and a good price.

What has privacy got to do with this?

Seems like a good idea if you want to deliver to family etc, however I would not look to use it if I was selling through EBAY, don't think I would like to take the risk.

And as for the flippant comment about Royal Mail stealing the items?.. Used Royal Mail on plenty of ocasions never lost an item yet.. Or are you commenting on those people that "claim" their item has gone missing in the post..ummm???

Still on that point, I have used numerous courier services before and they all have their own little faults, so this deal might be right for some and not right for others...

I didn't said that Home Delivery Network wouldn't. My point was in response to the person who said that they offer more privacy, not saying that this service will be good, just saying that royal mail are bad.

No I was actually refering to when Royal mail steal items. I have had plenty of items go missing and even more that have taken weeks to arrive - even some that were supposed to be recorded so how the employees get away with it I don't know. Also I find that a lot of the time when any letter contains anything credit card shaped they have usually been opened before they get delivered.
#35
I personally use PayPerParcel (http://www.payperparcel.co.uk/) May be dearer but they collect from your home and normally deliver 2/3 day parcels the next day. I've used them 3 times and they were spot on. I wouldn't trust the corner shop either. We know the post offices are busy because theres fewer of them and their prices are high now.
#36
This could come in handy. Nearest collect+ shop is half a mile away and they are the most helpful and friendliest shop staff on the planet. Let's hope some of the ebay sellers add this as a postage option on the eligible items.
#37
as promised:

its a pile of dogs muck...ive just wasted 2hours trying to get a parcel sent!
I went to my closest one and they didnt even think they done it to start with, then he said he was new and sent me over the road to another guy who works at that shop as well and said they did do it but would have to wait till 5pm.
so i go to try again after 5pm, the guy tries and the system isnt working after leaving me standing there in the shop for 15mins.
Then he says i try a shop down the road who also do it and they reckon they dont!

So now im having to book a courier at twice the price and its a day longer in waiting and ive got to try and get a refund from the company...
#38
yeah seems a bit hit and miss to me. On some occasions you may have to troddle along through town with a box in your hand. Seems a lot easier to stick to Royal mail or the usual courier services.

cold from me
#39
just got a phone call from a guy from the company and due to the problems ive had they are personally sending someone to pick up from my house...so this may change my opinion a little.
