Brilliant – expecting delivery of an acoustic bass for you youngest lad.Posted 4 years ago
PF van pulls up outside the office under my window.
Delivery driver opens rear doors and proceeds to fling parcels around inside the van.
Some big ones going the full length of a MB Sprinter sized van.
He comes upstairs and then gets a bit huffy when I make him wait whilst I check the packaging for holes and dents, then check the guitar inside before signing for it.
Brilliant service, your parcels in their hands!! 🙄
Fortunately all good inside the box.rogerthecatMember

Buy from a local music shop rather than mail order / internet?
Avoids parcel couriers (they’re all pretty bad at times) and supports local business, double win.
Direct purchase from the manufacturer in this case.Posted 4 years ago
Normally support the little music shop in Buxton if ever we need anything – great shop and really nice people.deftMember
DPD are really good, get texts in the morning with a 15 minute slot and they are always dead on – even if it’s for later in the afternoon. With Parcel Force it seems to alternate between a friendly bloke and a well looked after parcel, or a surly bloke in a rented transit who hands you a crushed box reeking of fags.Posted 4 years agouselesshippyMember
You think the drivers are bad, you want to see what goes on in the sorting depots….Posted 4 years ago
Watching boxes which say “denon” being chucked 30ft into cages, etc.
Best line I heard. One guy picks up a box, turns to mate and says “what does fra_gee_lee mean.”
Hmm Parcel Force……
