What compensation do I get if my package is not collected on time?

None of the major carriers guarantee their collections. If a service is guaranteed for next day delivery, this guarantee will only apply once the package has been collected.
Therefore we are unable to provide compensation for failed collections.
Will Paysend contact me if my collection fails? We are a courier broker and therefore not the collecting agent. We have very few issues with collection, but if the collection does not take place you will need to contact us so that we are aware and can arrange a recollection.

What is the volumetric weight and how do you work it out.

 

Large items with a light overall weight can be charged according to the space they take up on Vehicle.

In these cases, Volumetric Weight, or dimensional (Dim) weight, is used to calculate the shipment cost.

It is recommended that you calculate the Volumetric Weight for every shipment that you send, then compare this to its actual weight.

The greater weight of the two is used to work out the price that we charge you.

Length x Width x Height in centimeters / 4000 = Volumetric Weight in kilograms

Alternatively, please feel free to use our quick calculator on the send receive page.

 

What happens to undelivered parcels?

When the delivery fails at the first attempt a 'no reply card' is dropped at the address. Two more attempts are made during the period of the next 14 days and a card is left each time.

Telephone contact is tried during this period to arrange suitable delivery time.

The card dropped through the letter box advising 'unable to deliver' and requesting them to contact to arrange a suitable time to deliver or to make arrangements to collect the parcel.

If all fails after two weeks the sender is contacted for further instructions and advised of  failed attempts.

A returns charge is levied which is 1.5 times original carriage paid to bring the parcel back..

If the parcel needs to be sent back again it will have to be booked as a new order.
