CollectPlus Courier Service - anybody used them

Just tried this service to send some DVDs out from a sale on here.

So far the service was very easy to use and the drop off was painless and I received an email within minutes to say they have the parcel.

How long does delivery normally take?

What is the collection process - does the receiver need the tracking number or just an ID with their name on it?

any other comments - experiences?

thanks

Yeah used them twice so far. Latest one left at Spar in NI on Wed, picked up from Glasgow, today. Receipient gets a text or email if you entered either of those.

usually takes 5-7 days.

2 experiences 1 brill 1 horrendous. Tbh its down to teh shops that you take it to and the one that the buyer collects from.

Its done by Home Delivery Network who can be hit and miss apparantley but mysel only had positive experience with so far (touch wood).

I guess so!

Must say the shop I took it to was fine - scanned the label and before I left the shop I had an email on my blackberry to say the parcel was in their custody and when I PMed the buyer he had had a text to say its on its way.

Only thing that I don't fully understand is that they only take the recipients name so do they need to quote the tracking number as well as give ID?

thats the problem, i sent xmas pressies to my friend , first the shop tried to give her someone elses package. Then they said her husband had collected. Then i find they send parcel back to depot. Then same shop refuses its redelivery. It then took my friend 5 days of liasing with home delivery and her husband waiting an hour at an employees house to get said parcel.
