Phone call to DHL on Tuesday morning re sending parcel to NZ overnight. Other services told us 2 days but DHL said yes 1 day - ie Wednesday. So we agree - the charge (not yet paid...) is $120
Parcel picked up from our place at 16.29pm - to be on the plane to NZ that night
Here's the tracking so far
Wednesday parcel leaves Perth at 13.28pm - what has it been doing for nearly a day?
Thursday 10.54am - parcel arrives in Auckland. Have they swum it over the Tasman?
Friday 5.30am - parcel leaves Auckland to fly(?) to Christchurch
Friday 8.15am - parcel arrives in Christchurch
Robyn tells me DHL have told her it should arrive in Wanaka next Wednesday at the latest.
Can you believe it? Yes you probably can.
If we had sent it by Aust Post it probably would be there by now. Cost $9.50
As you can imagine we are not happy and will be sending off letter of complaint. Customer servie today was quite hopeless.
More importantly - we watched the rugby - the Hurricanes won although they were not exciting at all. Bruce has got us all frree tickets to go watch the Force play the Crusaders on Sunday - unfortunately it entails wearing a force t-shirt. I am not so good at that sort of thing.
