Yes I believe this is a tracked service.

I honestly believe DPD are one if not the of the best courier companies in the UK.
You can even track the vans exact location on their website whilst the driver is making his way to your address and doing the deliveries before yours.
They will also keep you well informed of your delivery by text and email and make the likes of Yodel & Royal mail look
like a joke company.
PS. I don't work for or have any connections to any of the above companies.

Do you mean companies or company's?

Great deal, I also feel that DPD are one of the best delivery companies, will be using this a lot

I like DPD because they give you a 1 hour delivery slot so no need to wait in all day.
Previously they were quite expensive but this is a very good deal, provided you have one of their drop-off points nearby, heat given.

worth noting though it's not guaranteed next day delivery and has no standard cover... but still a bad price. I used them last week

*not a bad price

Did a test post quote from Highlands of Scotland to Central Scotland for a 10KG parcel. £16.60 ... not great.

Seems a great deal - anybody know if it's long term, or for a short promo period?

Shame this wasn't posted last week when I had to drop a kayak back to Amazon. Used Hermes and haven't heard from seller about refund yet heat for deal...

DPD are great, for large items even had call from the driver to confirm

DPD have a modern service, but have had many damaged items, also parcel2go used to be good until they dropped their inclusive level of basic cover, penny pinching basically, interparcel.com for me now

Usually they do short promos mate.

Fell foul of this 2 weeks ago. Booked the delivery. Dropped the parcel off at local DPD pickup shop and went on holiday for 10 days.

DPD never arrived to collect it
Phoned up from hols, assured it'd be fixed.
Never collected.
Phoned again.
Never collected.

Ended up going back to the pick up shop and taking the parcel back and rebook using UPS instead.

I'm sure it works for some/most, but their support was clueless and completely useless when it went wrong.

Interparcel for me too. Parcel2go are absolute crooks. They actually stole one of my packages. They also informed me that another of my packages had been stolen by "****" and that they were dredging the Manchester canal to find it. Amazing that crowd of cretins are still in business.

The biggest joke of a courier company is Royal Mail.
I sent a DVD player through them and it was packaged in the original box and had all the polystyrene inner protection around the player
When it arrived the buyer said it was squashed and had tyre marks on the outer box and sent me photos.
Royal mail told me it was not adequately packaged and refused to compensate me.
After I argued with them that it originally came safely all the way from China in the same box they hung up on me, Bast**ds!!

Great price, heat.

How did they do that, they're a booking agent for the couriers, they never see your parcel

What is the compensation. Parcel2go recently reduced Hermes to zero, which means if its lost - tough luck. Actually now cheaper to buy it direct from hermes.co.uk

I did this a couple of weeks ago, dropped the item off at halfords. Took DPD a week to collect the parcel! what a joke, would never risk using this service again

Where do I put the code?

They are the customer of the courier. They instructed the courier to redirect the package to their premises in Bolton. They said I had used in invalid discount code (a code which they emailed to me in the first place) and informed me I had to pay them full price for the delivery and until then the item would remain in their possession.

As the item was documents I was able to re-print and re-send using a different courier. To this day, the original package remains in P2G's possession. This was well over a year ago.

In my experience ALL courier companies have problems, but some are worse than others. In my experience Yodel are the worst - I've had many bad experiences with them but the one that takes the biscuit was last November when they had apparently tried to deliver an Amazon item 7, yes SEVEN, times. They said they left a card each time (they didn't - not once) and eventually, after 4 WEEKS, it was delivered - but not to me, rather to somebody in SCOTLAND some 500 miles away!

I've asked Amazon many times NOT to use Yodel, but they still do and I still have problems with virtually EVERY one!

Anyway, LOL about them cutting you off - what you said about the item reaching you all the way from China with no problem would be the sort of thing I'd say. It amazes me when they think it's quite ok to cut you off like that! You can't win against these people - get one up on them and they always cut you off!

I feel your pain...........................

It would have been a great deal if it was a home collection. The drop service is full of risks especially as parcel2go provide no cover and also daily collection is not guaranteed.

DPD used to be absolutely shocking but it does seem like that have got their act together these days.

As long as your kayak weighs less than 20KG and is no longer than 0.5m you should be alright.

There's no insurance on this deal so not great at all. I use my hermes. They sometimes get a bad rep but I've sent over a thousand parcels with them and had a handful go missing to which I've always been paid the compensation I was due. If it's less than 2kg you're better off going with hermes if it's greater then more than likely you would want some insurance.

It depends on the value of your item as Royal Mail is only 2.80 for second class up to 2 kg,Hermes is 3.78 over a kilo and they have lowered their free compensation too.

Yeah but Royal Mail is £2.80 with no tracking or insurance. At least you get £25 insurance with hermes and can track the item. God knows what the process is with Royal Mail for lost parcels

That's why I said it depends on the value,I don't usually bother with Hermes if it's under a tenner,horses for courses and all that.:D

I quite like DPD & the text message with the hour slot.
However, I feel sorry for the drivers who are self employed & have to pay out of their own pocket to run the vans, etc.
Normally I respond to the text messages (i work on the same trading estate as my local depot - so never in to accept delivery) to change to a collection from the depot next day.

One time I had 2 deliveries & thought it was a duplication, so responded my usual I will collect tomorrow from Depot for one parcel, but not the other. The driver still had to make an attempt (& photograph my front door as proof) delivery - costing him time & money. Bit silly.

Also their system for delivery within a window - They are not allowed to hand over a package until they are in that window slot. If they are 1minute early, then they have to wait!

Does not matter how efficient a computer organises & plans the day - it still has its flaws.

I couldn't believe it when one driver had to stand at my gate waiting for it to count down so he could deliver it X)

Just used this today funnily enough. It's worth noting that the max size is 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 though, so no big parcels unlike UPS drop off. Also worth checking your local pick up time, mine was 10am, so I missed todays slot.. UPS is 3pm and Hermes is around the same, which is a bit more convenient for Ebay/Amazon orders.
