I mean really! We pay for EMS shipping, the best available on HLJ, and then we get the super sucky, delayed services of Parcelforce when your package reaches the UK! EVEN if it is under the £18 threshold for outside-the-EU imports! Why bother forking out the extra cash, if its gonna take nearly as long as SAL anyways??!! I just wanted to get it before I left for Uni… but I doubt its gonna arrive tomorrow, so my parents are gonna have to either bring it to me or send it too me! GAWD Parcelforce suck, and Mr.Parcelforce, I hope you’re reading this!! Do you know how much pain you cause importers? I’ve seen the cases via google on forums and such, and they’re all horror stories!! Get your butts in gear! Your worse than Royal Mail for crying out loud!! And they’re almost striking at the moment!!!! Little more below, and vid…
If other folks who have been screwed over by Parcelforce with import tax/duty, or, the real kicker, ‘handling fee’s’ of like £13!!! (What the hells up with that?!) Post here! Make a complaint, have a rant! Get your hatrid for Parcelforce off your chest!
My latest one was held for presentation to the customs guy, then it was ‘awaiting charges, then charging, and then it was released with charges anyway!!! What was the point in making me wait that extra time!! You can read the price on the box, the declared value! And it was UNDER £18!!!! FFS….
(This mainly applies to those who import from outside the EU, from the US, Japan, Hong Kong etc, importing from inside the EU doesnt usually incur charges, BUT it’ll still be delayed getting to you most of the time…. Or maybe its just the Parcelforce Coventry holding area thats super sucky at processing parcels? Cos thats where mine get sent for sorting everytime I’ve used EMS.)
And now, a little Lee Evans rant on Parcelforce, cos it was one of the first videos I found on Youtube when I searched ‘Parcelforce suck’ lol. Its a little NSFW due to the swearing, but it depends on where you work really, if you work in a primary or first school, best not, high schools or desk jobs should be fine lol.
