This is for the UPS Access Point to Door service with £50 insurance included. (Powered by Parcel2Go)

Use code "welcome" to get it for £4.80!

You can increase insurance to £5000.

I think door to door was only around £1 extra.

Not this again.. this is Parcel2Go brokering UPS services. Your contract is with P2G (may the lord help you) and not with UPS. This should be clear in the OP.

This is for up to 10Kg, 10 to 20 is 6 quid. Still a good price for sending a couple of wheels.

I've always used P2G, never had a problem and when I had to cancel something before I got a refund right away.

Plus, UPS is UPS.

excellent

Its when you do have a problem with P2go , don't hold your breath for a resolution, just accept you have (well , they have) lost your parcel and move on.

Might give this a try thanks op

If a parcel gets lost, would this not be the fault of the courier who is actually delivering the parcel and not P2G?

UPS is delivering the parcel not P2G, and although I'm sure they do, I've never known UPS to lose many parcels. Also this is why you insure it.

UPS lost a laptop a couple of years ago...tracked to the outgoing facility and just vanished. UPS will only pay cost of item without VAT...so 20% missing from payment (well that was the case for me before others say different) Claims forms were simple to fill in and because I had gone via Pharos Parcel the missing 20% was picked up by them...so in the end everything was even...not sure of others experiences.

I've never quite figured out how Parcel2Go can offer services through other couriers at far cheaper prices than going directly. I recently used UPSToday (Parcel2Go) for the first time and thankfully had no issues with 4KG of vinyl records.

But worried as to what happens if something goes missing.

Seems to happen with everything, I also don't get it. It just shows how greedy the main company is if they can do it for cheaper.

For example I worked at British Gas a few years back, Sainsburys who supply gas via BG, and may still do offered cheaper prices than BG. And it's not as if it's a different gas or electric, there's no such thing.

I guess that these companies handle the complaints, sales etc on their behalf thus saving them money and the 3rd party wanting a smaller margin than UPS in this example.

Good timing Mukr!

Ok except for the low insurance value.

P2G are excellent in my experience. Really good price, I've been paying more for Hermes for a couple of items I sent this week.

what about international parcels(to europe) any idea's at all??

Don't use parcel 2 go, bunch of theives

Seen as UPS use access points a lot now even when you are not in they leave it at a "access point" so more of a chance of things going missing. Not saying the shop owners are light fingered but if you could see where they leave parcels there is a probability of parcels going walkies.

great!! cheers!!

It's a simple business contract. p2g agree an amount of trade they will take over a period and if they do less they have to make up the rest with a payment. UPS can give a cheaper price for that reason and because it give then more output. I think P2G also reduce a lot of the free insurance down to their standard £20 so they much be using their own broker and so there again UPS don't have that on their books.

Where was this nine hours ago!!!!

Take your darned heat.

Many companies will premium package a product and sell it at a premium price

then sell excactly the same product at a cheap price under a different name

it's all about keeping production/ operations etc working efficiently

a bit like airlines selling tickets at different prices for the same flight

Use parcel hero, create a new account,use code MSE5 for £5 off. If u choose access point it might be totally free depending on the size and weight. I sent a 15kg big box for 69p.. and sent a laptop for free.. used access point for both, one came to £5.69 which i used the code to reduce down to 69p... the other came to under £5 so that was totally free.. unbelivable

Used P2G a while back when moving to the other side of the country. 10 boxes, paid around £45 extra for insurance.

One item was broken so I put a claim in for £30. They informed me the insurance wouldn't cover the broken item as I hadn't packed it well enough. But as a gesture of goodwill they would refund the insurance costs of £45 oO

Ey? P2G are well known for their excellent customer service. Always excellent for me anyway.

Same with mobile phones. Networks can never get near deals offered by other retailers on their network! Can't or won't, that's the question.

I'd use them again, once used P2G with UPS to send two big parcels to Netherlands and arrived within a few days with no damage. Although I'd always pay via credit card just on the off chance something went wrong there might be some s72 protection

This is NOT a next day service, it's a two day service, but it might get there next day. I've sent two parcels with them with this service, both took two days, and cost me two customers.

what bad experience you had with them ?
I've sent over 200 parcels with them, but it was only once that a parcel went missing but they offered me compensation for the insured value.

Code doesn't work for me on Access Point to Door service...either on my normal account or an account created just to try this out on! Most be invite only...

How do they get away with not paying up the total value of the laptop?
That's an absolute joke.
Surely they have to reimburse you the cost of replacing the laptop?

There was no live deal at the time of posting this and didn't see that one so maybe it was made live again.

great

beware of leaving parcels at the access points. I booked Monday took parcel to access point, delivery by the latest on Wednesday.It did not arrive, tracking shows nothing. Rang the store where I left the parcel and they said there were several waiting to be picked up and despite trying to contact them they had no success. I tried, was told online only no phone number had to do online chat. Very unhelpful, all I wanted to do was alert them to this store having a lot of parcels to be picked up that were now overdue for delivery. No receipts are given when taking a parcel in, but I insisted on something so was given a handwritten receipt. Thankfully I was able to get my parcel back today, Thursday, by producing that receipt at the shop. Price is hot, service is cold. Beware....

Left probably 500 parcels at UPS access point, which for me is a little newsagent near me.

Every single parcel collected same day, every single parcel delivered next day.

Your access point guy probably had a faulty PDA, or was logging the parcels in incorrectly. Therefore UPS was not notified about them.

Same with me, no faults with the one I sent.

Just signed up to send a few parcels, welcome code worked for me, cheers OP
