Everytime I've kept my eye on a parcel, It does spend some time in the hubs, then just suddenly moves in the night, you may like see an update tomorrow at like 6 in the morning saying at local hub, then at like 7 loaded on van ready for delivery. Its rather strange at how it moves.
#5
yer as above usually moves quite alot overnight to a local one then will be out for delivery tomorrow.

On a similar but different note citylink are terrible :( lucky you got parceforce doing yours.
Citylink had my parcel out from the local depot for delivery today to me and nothing happened with it all day, and then at 6 went back to depot :\

Not necessarily, my last guaranteed next day by 1pm package from Parcelforce took 9 days arriving last week when there was no snow or other delays. Meanwhile several Citylink packages arrived next day without issue and rather laughably a 2nd class item from ebay which I'd pay nothing for postage on arrived in just two days.

well i paid ebuyer for guarenteed next day delivery, and low and behold it didnt arrive, even though this morning it was loaded onto the van from a local depot, i know nothing has been attempted to delivery as the reception of my flat is manned 24 hours a day. and then at 6 it said returned to depot.
Thing is i ordered something from aria not 2 days ago and it came next day from citylink no problem.Not impressed guess i could claim my extra postage cost back from ebuyer??

I'm not so much praising Citylink, more pointing out that Parcelforce are far from fault as well. I do think Citylink are dependent on your area admittedly as I had trouble with them in Edinburgh but never an issue in Inverness. I don't know about claiming money back for the delayed delivery as it's not been an issue for me with Citylink, I do need to look into claiming back my special delivery costs though as a recipient which I think is possible.

TO REASSURE CUSTOMERS RECIEVING VIA TRACK ONLINE NOTING AT "HUB" DOESNT ACTUALLY MEAN YOUR PARCEL IS STILL AT "HUB". YOUR PARCEL IS ACTUALLY TRAVELLING IN TRANSIT AND THE SYSTEM WILL UPDATE EXACTLY EVERY 16 HOURS. YOUR NEXT UPDATE IS TYPICALLY WHEN YOUR PARCEL IS RECIEVED AT YOUR LOCAL HUB. THIS IS WHEN THE ACTUAL VAN ARRIVES NOT YOUR ACTUAL PARCEL. "THE VAN" GOES THROUGH SECURITY AND THEY SCAN THE PARCEL LIST DOCUMENT "WITH DRIVER" AND ALL PARCELS IN VAN ARE AUTOMATICALLY UPDATED WHEN SCANNED TO SAY "AT LOCAL HUB" "OUT FOR DELIVERY". I HOPE THIS HELPS ALL WEB USERS.

EXAMPLE

(1) PARCEL SECURED AT "HUB" A BIRMINGHAM/COVENTRY.
(2) PARCEL AT LOCAL HUB AND READY/OUT FOR DELIVERY.

DO NOT PANIC IF NOTHING HAPPENS FOR A WHILE BETWEN HUB AND LOCAL. YOUR PARCEL MUST TRAVEL A WHILE BEFORE BEING RECIEVED AND SCANNED BY LOCAL RECIEVING HUB IE "THE VAN PARCEL BARCODE LIST. WITH SECURITY AND DRIVER AT SECURITY GATE .

THEN UPDATE AT LOCAL HUB AND OUT FOR/READY FOR DELIVERY "SCANNED DRIVER AND GATE WHEN VAN LEAVES.

REMEMBER YOUE PARCEL GOES OVERNIGHT EITHER VIA VAN MAINLAND UK OR OVERNIGHT PARECEL FORCE FLIGHT FOR NORTHERN IRELAND /CHANNEL ISLANDS/AND STORNOWAY, ORKNEY AND SHETLAND/ISLE OF MAN ETC.

#12
I am furious my parcel has been at the hub since the 8th december and i still HAVE NOT RECEIVED it! I live in northern ireland and i doubt it takes nearly 2weeks to deliver a parcel from the uk! I ordered it well in time as it is a christmas present. Tried ringing customer service only for the automated call to confirm what i already know,that it is still at the hub! Any help would be appreciated

It's a funny old game.I would EXPECT "received and processed (given it's at the Hub) would mean it's ready to be loaded on to a truck,for delivery to your LOCAL depot?

why don't they have an A-Z of tracking events,in "full explanation of tracking events",found under "can we help"?
This is what I have,when I track.I GUESS it was OUT for delivery,but the driver ran out of time? if so,they still missed out a few scans.

When did you get your parcel? DID you get your parcel?,I hope so.

I had a chat with Parcelforce CS today,as I don't trust the scanning...does ANY body?. She told me they (Parcelforce) have to get a load together,at the HUB,and can't just send parcels of in dribs and drabs,but on the run-up to Christmas,I wouldn't have thought it would take them long to fill a container,en route to ANY part of the UK,or ANY OTHER area serviced for that matter

It will now be up to the destination countries carrier, how do we know how you sent it and via what mode of transport?

Some can be taken by road and take 30 days+

When it says loaded on vehicle for delivery does that mean I am going to get my parcel today?

What did Parcel Force say when you called them?

This is just a deals website, so not sure how you think we'd know and be able to track/update a parcel for you?

Am I missing something here with all the thread bumps asking for parcel updates on a 4yr old thread?

Ordered a R9 390 on the 20th (Today is the 29th) Was either in germany on in air for 3 days then was in Customs for another 3, today it changed to National Hub, so hoping a delivery today or tomorrow.

Built a new computer with new everything, all the parts arrived in two days along with a desk, chair arrived a day after, ordered a new monitor yesterday and it arrived today.

International shipping and Customs are amazing :P

Thank you

Status: Held

Usually means the parcel is being held at the local Post Office (after a delivery has been attempted) - have you tried the courier tracker for a description?

Can someone tell me what this means will I receive my parcel today? ?? Thank u
#37
I wonder if you could tell me what this means, when I called Parcelforce today the agent was very aggressive about what was in the parcel. I had ordered from the same company 5 months ago and it was held by customs for over 10 days before delivery but I don't understand how it can now have been released by Customs and yet held at the National Hub unless Parcelforce's website is wrong:-
Your parcel has now been examined by HM Customs and charges may have been raised by them. Please check the tracking details below for further details. A letter will be sent to the recipient if charges are due.

I'm in same boat as you mattdak! Released by customs but non movement and parcel force either say waitbfor it to be moved from customs or the website is wrong and it hasn't cleared customs yet
#39
Hi, I have exactly the same from India. Released from customs but says charges "MAY" have been raised. I received exactly the same package, from same company and place a couple months ago and it got here no problem.

Is it a standard message that everyone gets after its cleared?
Dont understand the "MAY have been raised", if they inspected it then they either have raised charges or they havent ...?
