    Fastways

    As you probably all know I had that parcel go missing then another one sent which got misdirected but made it home. Just had another parcel sent from Tauranaga get misdirected again! 3rd time in a row!!!!!

    Unbelievable.

    I know a few other people here have said they get stuff happening like this with fastways but just wondering how often it happens to other people?

    You mean Sloways?

    We use Castle as some items are a bit big for usual couriers. Why is it when I need to send something urgently and make the booking in the morning the cnuty fuktard arsefuker of an inbred mofo driver doesn't turn up till later the next day????????????? fuk that pisses me off.
    Made a complaint once but the lazyarsed mofo is still in the country driving for them and doing our pickups

    Toby - Thanks for providing the channel for me to vent on a already stressful 3 weeks

    I have shipped and received many firearms and other goods via Fastways and have never had a single problem...I believe how it is addressed is usually a common problem for others...all my dealings are with an agency/depot.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Hey @Toby, I thought part of your hold up was waiting for components coming from China...I hope you weren't using Fastways for off shore work...have a look down on the beach, they may have got stuck coming ashore.

    It is on the map we have a fastways depot here too fyi

    They just suck shit, never had any problem with nzpost or anything. I actually think its because some dick wad who works there doesn't like me haha. or more like theres another wairoa somewhere and they keep sending my shit that way. I have no idea why all my stuff gets misdirected but it's a pain in the ass

    That's what I thought they looked at too. My engineering teacher also has had problems with stuff not getting here on time because it goes somewhere else first.

    Never had a problem. I give them a call, they arrive at my office to collect, throw them a bit of cash and usually delivered within a couple of days.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    They've akways done me right too. I believe its really a matter of the individual courier driver. One working for courier post in Chch twice threw items over the property fence when they were clearly signature required. We complained to national manager level and then the second incident. So fastway yes, courier post no!
