Helen Hall

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.”

Ross Mitchell

Director at London Smoke & Cure

“Moving to Packfleet has had a major impact on the success of our business. They’re the first courier to provide us with the confidence that our products will get to their destinations on time and in the condition we sent them.

Partnered with their focus on sustainability, and with their intelligent and easy-to-use systems, they’re the winning solution. 100% recommended”
