First time using Parcelforce.

I sold a large item on Ebay over the weekend and booked a collection from Parcelforce for today. They were meant to collect the item between 09:00-12.00 as stated in my Email and on my receipt but nobody turned up.

I rang the number from the main Parcelforce website and spoke to a lady who told me that Parcelforce don`t even collect in the morning? Hmm ok.........? she went on to take my mobile number and informed me she would contact my local depot who would in turn contact me to update me on the situation. So I waited... and guess what, nothing! not a sausage.

Getting frustrated now I contacted my local depot myself. After finally getting through I explained the situation to them. When asked for my name the lady immediately recognized me and assured me that my item will be collected today. She went on to explain that their booking system throws up some random times which I should ignore as the drivers can never make those times! So why bother giving those times?? Argh!

It`s now 2pm and i`m pretty doubtful but still hopeful. Lets see?

What do you think?

Parcelforce will turn up, who knows when. Normally Mornings for deliveries and Afternoon for collection but this differs

Mondays are always busy.

I hope so Strike. I keep looking out the window for the big red van. Afraid to go toilet just incase. Guess i`m being a little impatient but after reading some bad reviews of them and the nonsense regarding the times, I freaked out

I'm expecting a delivery from them tomorrow, hope my parcel turns up oO

Maybe have a plan B if you need to ship today and get a refund from parcelforce, not sure how big the item is but DPD via parcel2go might be an option

Hi Chanchi, I think PF could come anytime up untill 5.30pm so going to wait it out. If they don`t turn up I will get a refund tomorrow and try with DPD.

I just had to change my sons pants which were smelly and clean him up. Even that didn`t work...
Maybe I will get naked and dance around the front door for a bit...

Scrap that idea as the driver will no doubt tell me he/she came for a large package and would be disappointed X)

I see a red van coming!!!!!!!!!!!!! oO

They could arrive anytime between 8 and 5:30 and sometimes even outside those times.
They don't generally offer timed collections and if they did they would charge more as they do with timed deliveries.
This is normal.
