    I click the button in the email and it just brings me to the homepage. I try to log in and it fails saying my login credentials are wrong. No code received at any point.

    OK when I copied the link from the email into the browser I registered with, it picked up that I was 'logged in' from when I registered and proceeded to validate my email. I then got a code.

    It had failed because my gmail is blocked in work and I tried it with my phone. It seems you have to use the same browser you registered with. Other than that you cannot log in.




  • Where are the free deliveries? have they stopped the 3 free deliveries?

    It's indicated on 'My Parcel Passport' page under My Account.




  • This should be better for over sized items

    edit
    Maximum consignment weight under this service is 20kg. Maximum box dimensions are 40cm x 40cm x 60cm.

    thats not exactly big

    What would happen if the box received were bigger than those dimensions? Is there a surcharge listed somewhere or something?




  • So instead of dropping 30/40 packages in a locker DPD/Parcel Wizard will deliver straight to 30/40 different houses and it's cheaper! Excellent.

    I can see the schedule/calendar being quite handy. For example if I'm doing my Christmas shopping this week and know that I'm off on Wednesday the 25th I can have it all arrive at my door that day. Plus they'll send me a text reminder the day before and an estimated delivery time on the day.


    Registered without any issues. Just used ParcelMotel a couple of hours ago too. :(

    Now all we need is the Euro/Sterling to improve!

    My nearest Parcel Motel is in Wexford Town and I'm in Enniscorthy,I know they now do home delivery for €7.95 but if DPD do it for half that then I'm sold on it.

    Anyone ordering stuff from China,delivery via Parcel Motel or Parcel Wizard will halve their delivery time.

    Parcel Wizard don't accept packages from outside the EU, Parcel Motel do.




  • The whole reason I use Parcel Motel now is that I'm working during hours when they deliver.

    Parcel Wizard won't fix that because they don't deliver on Saturday's so for that reason I doubt that Parcel Motel will worry that much since us working people will still very much need them.

    Shhhh we should be bigging this up in the hope that they start a price war :D




  • Signed up great, thanks! I never have a problem getting things delivered at home, also they can drop it into work to me, way handier than parcel motel. And they have a Calendar feature too, nice.




  • Trying to register and getting the following (very useful) error message:
    Error occurred, please try again
    


    Anybody else getting the same?


    Update: Working now. I think my password was too long....

    For me it was adding a plus sign in my gmail address which is perfectly valid.

  • Just realised that you can pick different addresses too. If you're not home on a certain day you instruct them to deliver to your work address or the address of a family member/neighbour. You can also choose to just pick it up at a depot.




  • Fine I suppose but the big selling point of Parcel Motel for me is that I don't have to be at home to get it delivered.

    Use ParcelWizard to get it delivered to ParcelMotel... problem solved! :pac:

    I'm getting my stuff delivered to the office




  • I'm getting my stuff delivered to the office

    Why use Parcel Wizard at all then and not get it delivered straight there and save yourself a few quid?




  • yeah, that's what I'm saying. Instead of PM I'm getting PW delivered to the office




  • devnull wrote: »

    I think most of us use PM/PW solely for UK purchases, when the delivery price to Ireland is expensive/nonexistent. That's the big selling point here.




  • Im trying to sign up but it says "an error has occured, please try again later"

    Also do we need a coupon code for the 3 free stays?




  • For me it was adding a plus sign in my gmail address which is perfectly valid.

    I spoke too soon! Still no validation email and trying again with a different email address gives me the error again.

    I'll try it again later. I couldn't be arsed dealing with this for €12.




  • I signed up no problem. All customers, not just newbies, get three free deliveries to their UK address and no coupon/code required

  • Got the error too. Maybe boards busted their sign up system!




  • I'm getting the error too, tried changing my password several times. Still getting an error.




  • So basically,
    • If you can't receive a package to your home,
    • Scheduling a delivery day doesn't suit,
    • If you can't get it delivered to your place of employment,
    • If you can't get it delivered to a neighbour/friend/family member/local shop,
    • If you can't collect it from the DPD depot,

    then you'll have to pay more for the Parcel Motel service IF there is one convenient to you.

    For everything else there's Parcel Wizard.




  • Thanks.
    Have a DPD driver into the job every day so this suits me perfectly.




  • Thanks for this. I use DPD quite a bit and always get an email and text giving an hour space when my parcel will arrive. Most of the time they arrive within the first five minutes of that time slot. MInd you I live in a large town and most of the courier companies deliever at that time. There is no parcel motel nearby for me so this is great.




  • Thanks. I might sign up just to have options of delivery to my work. My rural house can never be found by couriers (they always have to ring), so this service isn't so useful for those out in the sticks. I've found Parcel Connect to be better for me as I pass one of their 900 odd store/shop locations everyday. Parcel Motel tend only to be in the cities and awkward to get to at times.




  • Will give this a shot. Had my problems with parcel motel on more than one occasion




  • Won't be until after Christmas, but An Post will be starting the same kind of service. They will have a warehouse in London, so UK mainland postage only will be available to Ireland. Won't be delivered to your house but to a post office you select when registering. You will get a text or email when it's at this post office and will have 5 days to pick it up before being returned. Think it's going to cost in or around €3.50 per delivery.
    Had a few problems with DPD myself. Parcel motel is great for the UK stuff, but the UK mainland only delivery stuff is a bit of a pain.




  • DPD are owned by the same people that own Chronopost and PostNord amongst others - http://www.dpd.com/home/our_network.

    There are plenty of online stores in Europe that don't deliver here, or do for a high price.
    I wonder would they expand into Europe 2378_infatuated.gif as Parcel Motel already said they wouldn't.
