Nakakatakot talaga ng Philpost. Parang ang laki ng percentage na mawawala or ma-damage an papadala. Kung mura lang din naman ang hanap niyo, okay pa yung bus companies. yun nga lang, kailangan pick-up ng consignee sa bus station.

Aside from Xend, meron pa bang ibang courier na may badge on my how many shipments you had so far? Thanks!

* Dati yun Xend riders lumipat sa Philfox then from Philfox to LRC naman sila? Hahay~

^xend pa rin ang pinakamahal sa manila, i think?
ang maganda, may mobile app na sila, ang bilis magbook

anyway, with all these hassles ng couriers, napapaisip ako mag put up ng ganitong business.  ;D

sis Jaguar.Paw, how much ang rate niyo sa small packages, say mga 1 kilo or 2kilos, within Metro Manila?

sharing our experience with Lrc Express. very frustrating and disappointing!  >:( Saturday March 21, 2015 nagpadala kami to Ilocos Sur. akala namin ok na since nakailang beses na kami magpadala using Lrc nakakarating naman and minsan mabilis pa nga. then come Tuesday March 24, 2015 our buyer informed us na hindi pa niya natatanggap yung item. so nagfollow up kami and sabi ni Tony ng Lrc hindi na daw umabot sa pick up ng Lbc. paintay nalang daw. kinabahan na ako kasi sa pink copy namin wala yung sticker na dinidikit nila and hand written lang nakalagay. i checked sa Lbc website and yung transaction number na nakalagay sa copy namin e gamit na and transacted last March 18, 2015 pa. nagcomplain na kami and they even told our personnel na baka naman hindi pinadala ng tao namin yung item. they checked the cctv footage and nakita na tinanggap nila yung item and even sa website nila encoded yung waybill #.

this is not the first time na may palpak. but hinayaan namin as long as nakakarating naman items. may times na icharge kami ng sobra ng php5 or php10 tapos nung nireklamo namin sabi sa amin kasi bago daw yung tumanggap pasensyan na daw. then may isang beses pa na dapat e php130 lang pero they charged us php190. pinaka masaklap e ngayon nawala na yung mismong item!

they asked ano daw yung pinadala namin and how much and what brand pa. na kesyo Lbc daw ang nagtatanong ng details. but we confirmed with Lbc na wala silang natanggap na package para sa taong padadalhan namin from Lrc. and hindi sila nagtatanong ng ganong detail kasi hindi naman sila authorized.

hindi na ako uulit sa Lrc. d bale ng mas mahal basta sigurado. base sa ginawa mukhang planado na nila yun and they selected randomly kung sino target nila as ang galing naman nung nagsulat ng tracking number sa copy namin ng used but valid na tracking number. wala din kwenta kausap mga taga Lrc as pagpasa pasahan ka lang then sasabihin nila si ganito ang liable, dapat si ganito ang magshoulder ng loss ganito ganyan!

they refunded the amount to us. but yung hassle at sakit ng ulo na dinulot nila sa amin e hindi worth it even mura lang charge nila. plus nakakahiya sa buyer.

lesson learned.

Keep Moving Forward!

Buti di ko na-experience yan sa LRC. may mga palpak din at delays pero na-aksiyonan naman after ng follow-up. Maraming palpak ang LRC pero mas malala ang experience namin sa Xend in terms of delays sa pick-up at delivery. We also use Fastrack as alternative. So far okay naman ang Fastrack. Kaya namin ginagamit yung LRC kasi kilala na namin ang courier nila na nagppipick-up sa amin. Madaling i-text for adjustments sa pick-up schedule.

^baka better nga kapag pick up. kami kasi walk in as malapit lang sa amin yung place nila. and hindi kasi convenient for us na iintayin namin sila to pick up. mas gusto ko na ipadala doon para tapos na ako sa transactions.

madami nga akong friends who use LRC kaya nagtry din kami sa kanila. and ganon din naman sabi sa amin, may mga palpak pero naaayos naman. swerte ko lang talaga siguro that day at natyempohan hehe

will check nga yung Fastrack.  :)
Keep Moving Forward!

Hi sisses, I'll just share my experience with couriers. Nung nagstart kami in 2012, nasubukan ko na [textspeak!] Xend, Philfox, Fastrack, Victory Liner, JRS, LBC. At first mahirap kasi sa tingin ko, hindi ka ipa-prioritize ng mga rider kung bago ka pa lang.
Nag-stick kami with Fastrack kasi mura 'yong rates nila and mabilis naman kapag Metro Manila. LBC ang partner nila sa provinces, and minsan nadedelay talaga [textspeak!] LBC lalo na kung liblib [textspeak!] areas. Understandable naman yon kaya dapat nasa store rules na may delay kapag malalayong lugar. Kapag delayed naman si LBC, pwede naman i-follow-up kay Fastrack, then sila [textspeak!] mangungulit sa LBC.
Sometimes, may araw din na hindi nagpipick-up si Fastrack, due to overloading daw. Iniintindi ko na lang kasi baka marami talaga silang deliveries that day. Kelangan lang i-explain sa clients 'yong time frame.
Meron din silang badge na pwedeng ilagay sa website.
Once,nawalan kami sa Fastrack, kasi siguro Christmas peak noon tapos di na nila malocate [textspeak!] package. Pero na-refund naman nila agad sa amin. Try to make a good 'partnership' with a courier first, para maging smooth din ang communication ninyo.
OK rin ang Victory liner, mura siya kung malalaking packages tapos ipipick-up na lang ng client. Never pa naman kami nagkaproblema sa kanila.
I don't go direct to LBC and JRS kasi mahal. Bakit ka pa magshiship sa kanila kung may mas murang alternatives naman at hindi naman urgent yung packages.
