Cofounder at Peckham Cellars
Working with Packfleet has been an absolute joy and so refreshing in comparison to other courier companies. The drivers are all super friendly, patient, and careful with our packages. We’ve had a fraction of the issues with breakages that we had with other companies and can use our standard packaging rather than having to invest huge amounts of money and space in protective packaging that is required by DPD and Parcelforce.The integration with Shopify works like a dream and makes everything much easier to manage. Couldn’t recommend these guys highly enough.
Founder at Natty Boy Wines
The service provided by the team at Packfleet is extraordinary, from the driver collection through customer service and product delivery. My customers continually speak highly of the service they receive, both in the lead up to and at point of delivery.
This is not something I can say for 99% of the other delivery companies I have worked with. An outstanding partner that I'm very happy working with...
