Pwede ba akong gumawa nitong thread? Hinde na kasi viewable yung thread 4..

Question lang po if naka gamit na kayo ng Philtranco na Cargo and if okay ba sila? Mukhang ang mura kasi nila kaso parang too good to be true yung price na sinabi sa akin sa phone e..

im on my first week sa online selling and shipment din ang mejo naging problema ko.. First shipment ko sa Lbc, hehe sablayers agad.. it took 4 days bago nareceive ng client ko yung order nya.. sobrang husstle, even though next day delivery yon supposedly  :( ,Any suggestion po na courier na reachable nila yung mga brgy sa mga provinces.. Lbc lang kasi yung nahanap ko last time, mejo pricey sya for 2 kls 400 pesos tapos medium box.. Bad service...

^sis lischan, hehe sorry ha, yung philtranco na yan, yun ba yung sa pagpapadala tru their terminal busses? hehe yun nga ba???(inosente lang)...Meron kasi akong alam na nag ooffer din sa victory naman (pasay).. but not sure kung saan mga destinations na cover nila. Pero yung friend ko kasi, living on pangasinan, ganun lang yung pag ssend na ginagawa nila ng mga documents & kung ano ano.. Mas parang mura sya than the usual courier.

Kapag nagpapadala sa bus lines (Philtranco, Victory, etc.), kailangan i-pickup ng consignee sa station ng bus. Kaya sya mura. Hindi siya door-to-door.

Was it raining that time when you had that shipment?  The problem with bus liners is they don't have insurance, lagot ka if nawala.

Still using Philfox and LRC. Xend, minsan lang. kapag nag approve lang yung client. ang hassle kasi. muntik na akong mawalan ng worth 3k ng items. huhu. kasi ba naman ni return ni ateng guard nung building ng consignee. tapos yung rider hindi nireport sa main office. so sa side ng Xend, delivered talaga yung items. pero ang totooo, nasa warehouse lang. :( buti pinuntahan ni client. to think na Mandaluyong area lang yun. at nasa Mandaluyong din ang  head office nila.

@Nicoletta
No, good weather naman na that time. Ang naging problem kase with LBC is the agent dun sa branch, hindi nya sinabi na "out of delivery zone" yung area ng receiver ko. Na supposedly by the moment na ipinadala ko yung parcel, nag advise na dapat sya kasi mag aappear yon sa program nila, but then na figured out ko lang yon wednesday (i sended it sunday) morning nung tumawag ako sa Customer service Web talk nila. Hehe that was my first time to use LBC, at baka mukang last na din. Mejo pricey din kasi sila compare to other like JRS. With XEND, Metrowide and other courier, mejo takot ako mag take ng risk lalo na pag provincial shipment.

Baka may suggested kayo mga sis na trusted courier nyo for provincial. It will help a lot lalo na sa mga bago palang nag sstart ng online business. Thank you :)

Office of Philfox is along T. Sora (Visayas Ave) yung subdivision na katabi ng Mercury Drug. Pag nagpapadala ako drop by lang ako dun LBC din pinagpapadalhan nila may account daw sila sa LBC, open pa rin sila.

I used LRC Express for the first time last Sat. Sana dumating yun package! Hindi ko nalagay yun value nung item so lagot pag hindi. Yun courier is yun suki din pala ng sister ko from Xend before kaya sya yun hinanap nung nag-pick up sya. Lumipat daw yun mga couriers sa LRC dahil nagka-prob sa ofc. Nway, sabi din nya provincial nila is serviced by LBC.

Been using Philfox for quite some time. Lalo kapag mabigat yung parcel. bilang dahil unliweight sila sa metro manila. madalas kasi mabigat parcel ko kasi soaps. :(



then yung rider sa area namin (Gagalangin, Tondo), ang sistema niya is idedeliver niya muna lahat bago siya mag pick up. so one time, may inorder ako online na Philfox din ang courier, nagdeliver siya saakin. then sabi niya babalikan na lang daw niya yung pick up ko. ang pinakamaganda sa lahat, hindi niya ako binalikan. :( so nung 2nd time na may idedeliver ulit saakin and ipick up at the same time, sabi nya babalikan niya. What I did is nagpa pick up na lang ako sa LRC kasi ayoko naman mabitin na naman. nakakahiya sa client! Apparently, bumalik si kuya. sinabi sakanya ng mom ko na napick up na ng LRC. anong ginawa niya? He told my mom na "nay pakisabi po kay mam, kung sa LRC po siya, sa LRC na lang po siya magpa-book".



nairita tala ago!!! Gets ko naman si kuya. pero kasi hindi ko din naman yun gagawin kung marunong lang siya tumupad sa binitawan niyang salita. And according to mom, medyo adelantado daw si kuya rider everytime magpipick up. kaya until now, LRC na lang gamit ko. kahit na ilang beses na nila ako nabi-bwisit kasi hindi nagpipick up.



I think I'll use na lang Fastrack for unliweight thing.

Sorry mahaba sissies. :) ilang linggo ko na din yan kinimkim. hahaha.

mga sis. meron ba kayo alam na couirier yun parang may pabili service? meron kase dati nito si bayadpo.com kaso will try pa lang sana eh sinuspend muna nila delivery services nila.

need ko rin sana yung parang messenger for hire baka may alam din kayo?

also, sino ba ang pinaka ma recommend ninyong courier?  i use pedala bike messengers for same day pick-up and deliver kaso lately laging nag cancel sila ng last minute. currently, i'm using jam express pero unang shipment lang okay then ngayon nagkaka problem ako sa kanila.

Post by: RoyalWeddingFavors on October 24, 2014, 09:37:44 am
We've been using Fastrack and reliable ang service nila. Reasonable hours din yung pick up and deliver nila.

Before nag Metrowide kami pero yung rider nila super late naman magpick up. Sayang ang buong araw sa kakahintay sa kanila.

Sa Xend naman, super hassle kasi kapag di na nila kaya ang load ibibigay nila sa LBC without telling you or the seller so hindi mo malaman if nawala na ba sya. Ang hirap ding tumawag sa kanila. Minsan nagpunta ako sa office nila sa Mandaluyong looking for my order at kaya pala ang hirap tumawag kasi isa lang ang tagasagot ng phone. Turn-off so I moved to Fastrack.

For provincials, stick pa rin kami sa LBC kasi babasagin yung ibang items natin. Maganda rin ang tracking system nila if in case mawala.

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.

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.

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.
Title: Re: all about COURIER SERVICES ~Thread 5~
Post by: seven82 on April 02, 2015, 12:00:41 pm
^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.  :)

hi krabby_patty, kami nagshiship sa victory liner kapag nagrequest yung buyer. pero di ko tanda [textspeak!] rates nila, parang 100-120 [textspeak!] minimum sa monumento. kahit mejo malaking box ipadala mo, mura pa rin compared kung ipapadala mo sa xend. pwede ka naman magpa-quote sa terminal kahit di mo pa ipapaship. sasabihin din nila sayo kung kelan dating sa destination, para sakin ok magpadala sa kanila.

Anong feedback sa Xend ngayon. I've stopped using their services for several years already simula nung mga incidents na pumapalya sila ng pick up sa akin. Loyal na lang ako sa JRS. Kaya lang some clients especially within Manila naghahanap ng mas mura. May mga drop off points na pala sila, selected 7-11 branches. Musta naman, wala na kayang delays?

Ako yung recipient at sa recent experience ko, may delay. Actually, first time kasi lagi next day delivery kahit normal service kinuha.

Nagworry pa ako kasi sa site nakalagay delivered na pero wala pa sa akin yung package. After a day saka ko lang nakuha so nagbigay ako ng feedback na ayusin nila yung tracking.

@msals2007 Paano yun drop off sa 7/11 branches ng JRS? Sila rin ang mag compute kung magkano? Sinong mas okay ang rates JRS or LBC? Tsaka, hindi ba masyadong strict ang JRS? Sa LBC kase ang mahal na ang dami pang bawal. Pinagtitiyagaan ko lang kase mas kampante ako na makakarating yung package ko.

Sino ang pinaka recommended ninyong courier na nag pick-up door to door at may same day pick-up and deliver service?

Tawag ka sa main branch nila I think naka post sa website to ask what branch ang pwedeng pumickup sa iyo. After nun pwede ka na dumirecho ng tawag sa servicing branch mo. Sa tagal ko ng nagpapapick up sa JRS, several years already, textmate na kami ng courier. Minsan siya tatawag sa akin sa umaga to ask if may pick up siya sa akin for the day.

I am using Fastrack kasi as my courier ever since nag start ako ng online shop. And wala talagang mintis yung pag pick up and deliver ng packages nila. And since nag switch ako ng items na binebenta, from clothes to wooden toys, need ko ng courier na mas may malaking packaging, which is Margaux. Though every now and then eh nagpapaship padin ako sa Fastrack if kasya yung items sa packaging nila. Yung una eh satisifed ako sa Margaux, pero 2 days ago, ni ho ni ha, wala man lang nag coconfirm if ma pipick up ba yung items ko or hindi. ang dami nang packages na nakatengga sa bahay. haist! Di man lang sila mag advice kung mag pick up ba. Di rin nasagot sa tawag or what. Kainis lang.  ??? Ang nakakainis pa, nag coconfirm sila na ma pick up yung items for delivery, pero wala naman nadating. Yung una okay naman sila. Sigh.

Di ko naman maipaship sa iba, kasi ang laki ng boxes, for sure mapapamahal yugn customers. Tsk.

Sa Upshift, mas mura ang Manila rates P40 lang for small, P60 for large. Provincial P105 yung small. Okay na okay ang service nila for me. Try niyo din sissies! :)

i noticed sa mga couriers, sa una lang sila talaga mahusay magpick up and magdeliver, on time and courteous pa. but eventually, pag marami na nagpapatronze parang lumalaki na ata ang mga ulo, they tend to change their performance na, siguro dahil sa alam nila na kailangan sila ng dumaraming customers.  sana lang and since nagboboom ang courier business due to increasing number of SMEs who patronizes courier services, eh dapat ilevel up naman nila ang performance nila para naman hindi mamatay ang negosyo ng mga SMEs which, who helps increases our economy.

I give allowance na to my clients. Instead of telling them na 1-2 days delivery, I give buffer so I tell them 1-3 days para sure. Given the traffic, bad weather and unpredictable volume of shipments, minsan meron pang vehicular troubles, mabuti na magbigay ng allowance. The ones I mentioned above are the same reasons Xend tells me why packages get delayed.

I also give clients the option to have items shipped via LBC kung gusto nila mabilis. Once I had to ship an item to Bulacan. It would take Xend 2-3 days since papasa pa nila yan sa LBC. So I asked the buyer nalang if he's willing to pay extra, padala ko nalang via LBC. He agreed. Client got the package in less than 24 hours. Mahirap lang sa LBC, they inspect the contents of the package. Dun ko pa mismo sa shop iwwrap ng bubble wrap. On the plus side, they have a lot of branches nearby. You don't need to wait all day kung kelan dadating ang magpipick up. I got a number of receptacle stickers din, para pag dating ko sa LBC branch, ready na yung stickers for the package :)

@msals2007 are you located in the South by any chance? Been encountering a lot of problems din with Xend lately. According to the rider, they outsourced deliveries to an agency. One package I sent took 1 week kahit within Metro Manila lang.

I also have a missing package. According to Xend's online tracking, received na yung package by the consignee but my buyer has confirmed wala pa siyang natatanggap. I have been calling and emailing Xend (very hard to go through their hotline, parang it took me about an hour of dialing and re-dialing before ako nakapasok) but they keep giving me canned responses. Thinking if I should refund my buyer nalang. Has anyone tried filing for a missing package claim?

Mga sis, strict pa rin ba mga couriers sa mga liquid products na pinapaship like perfumes? Plan ko sana ulit start ng perfume business ko online and yun yung concern ko.

kung magpapapick up sa fast track, will it show sa waybill yung complete address where the item got picked up? and makikita  nung papadalhan ko ng item yung address ko??

Sobrang nanghihinayang ako sa Xend. Ang ganda ng website, madaling i-integrate yung code nila at meron pa silang 7-11 drop-offs. I was considering it for my business, pero sobrang unreliable na based on recent comments. Sana mag-improve pa kasi sayang talaga sila.

Margaux ang gamit ngayon ng family ko (pero medyo old school yung website nila, hehe). I might use Upshift or Fastrack (suggestions?) for my buisness. Sana lang hindi magaya sa Xend na okay lang sa simula.

I will try upshift nga. Right now super bad trip ako sa fastrack.  Ilang beses na nilang di pinipickup ying item pero sasabihin noted. Since nagpalit sipa ng rider sa area ko lagi ganto magpickup. Tagal ko ma sa kanila now pa sila nagloko.

Not sure what's happening but yes, the affordable couriers are no longer reliable these days :( Pay for a premium na lang go for LBC or Air21 para sigurado.

Post by: andreil_19 on October 20, 2015, 09:10:22 pm
LBC ang gamit ko since may malapit na branch lang sa amin. But also considering other courier na free pick-up kasi medyo mahigpit at limited ang lbc kapag perfume ang ipapadala at they need to check the item before packing. May seller akong nabilihan na ang gamit is metrowide, next day delivery at karamihan ang feedback sa kanya is fast delivery.Kaya tinanong ko na yung rider just in case na magpapasend ako ng item.

I was using bayadpo before (bexpressph.com) for COD kaso wala na ngayon.

Good afternoon, sissies!

Have you heard the sudden closure of Upshift Express? What happened? I have one parcel pending for delivery but they reassured in their facebook statement that all undelivered parcels will be coursed through LBC. Were you given a timeframe on how long?

I also feel for their employees who won't receive any benefit this holiday season...

Hello sissies!

tagal na pala since last na update tong thread. hehe.

have you heard of Vrush Couriers? I find it quite interesting. may COD din kasi and parang every 15th and 30th ang pagbayad mo ng delivery fees. meaning, you don't have to pay na sa rider.

may naka try na po ba sa inyo? kumusta naman?

HI mga sis, kami nakapag try na ng ibat ibang couriers. And if you've heard about margaux express, kasama kami dun sa affected na packages last December. Suspo, mahigit 30k nirefund namin sa customers gawa ng nanyari sa kanila :(

orangeraine - we also use vRush sa kada cod na transaction sis, medyo pricey sa kanila compared sa ibang courier na may cod (Gryffon offers COD); kaso ang mganda sa vrush, ang ganda ng services nila. may handling fee din sila.
not true ang 15th and 30th na pag bayad ng delivery fee, kasi kami, sinisingil padin upright ng rider hehe. There was a time na na delay din sila nag pagbayad sakin, pero when i emailed them naman, dineposit agad nila samin yung cod, and sabi nila namiss lang daw ng nagdeposit. medyo naguluhan lang ako sa kanila, kasi binabawas pa nila yung handling fee dun sa sinensend nila sakin na payment, kahit binigay ko na sa rider.

Gryffon courier, may cod sila and the next day, binibigay na sakin agad yung bayad :) abest sila connected for provincial.

Has Xend recovered from their holiday mess? I've been a loyal Xend customer pero di ko kinaya yung kapalpakan nila last December. I switched to LBC sabi ko till Xend operations normalize. Nag try ako 2 shipments recently using Xend (MM to MM) both arrived naman on time. Sana ok na ulit sila :) Nakakatakot lang because even my suppliers have stopped using Xend na.

Good day girls! Ask ko lang who's from Davao & has an online store? We have a physical store and since we have a facebook account, some order online na din. My prob is walang fast track or Xend or any service na similar to that dito. Or baka di lang ako aware LOL. Ano gamit nyo mga sis from Davao or other provinces? Hindi din naman frequent ang orders so I can't avail shipping consolidators. Nagreklamo na [textspeak!] online customers na mahal daw ang LBC & 2Go. HELP!

For those within Manila lang, try ninyo grab express or grab express lite. Sinubukan eto ng buyer ko, yung lite lang. From my place in taguig going to her place in san miguel, manila, P118 lang. And in one hour nasa kanya na agad yung order niya. Ang hassle lang sa lite is curb-to-curb only siya. So dapat both the sender and receiver nakaabang na sa tabi ng kalsada to meet the rider. Pero mas mura. Yung grab express naman na hindi lite, pwede sila umakyat ng building or really meet you sa place mo, no need to wait for him at the curbside.

Nagulat na lang ako biglang nakalagay dun na received ko na raw samantalang nasa bahay lang ako the whole day wala naman ako nakuha. sabi ng iba namin kasama sa bahay wala naman daw dumating package para sakin. nakakapikon eh. either sinungaling fastrack o isa sa kasama ko sa bahay.

Dati Xend but now we use LBC. LBC is very reliable and I like their tracking system.

Recently I had a customer who insisted on using Xend para makatipid sa shipping fee, tapos follow up ng follow up because it took 2-3 days ata for the parcel to get to her kahit MM to MM lang. So hard to go through Xend's hotline also, and had a terrible experience with them last year during the holidays. Some parcels got delayed for 2 weeks!

Grab is ok but riders aren't always available in my area. Sometimes kahit meron nearby, they don't accept. Had an experience with them din. Shipped something around 8 in the morning, rider ended the trip so kala ko delivered na but around 5pm he texted me to ask me for directions!!! I panicked and kept calling him pero lowbatt daw siya. Hardly used Grab again after that experience.

Just wanted to leave a good review for LBC. So I went to their branch around 4 pm yesterday to send packages to Batangas and Pampanga. The staff said baka three days pa raw kasi christmas season na, which is okay lang naman sa akin. Today, nalaman ko na nakarating na yung package sa Pampanga and the one to Batangas is already on its way. So fast. Sorry kung medyo parang masyado naman ako excited, LOL. Natuwa lang ako kasi umabot pa before christmas yung mga gifts.

bukod dun masyado silang maarte sa items na ipapadala binubusisi pa nila yung laman

LBC is always may last resort at talagang maasahan.

I remember last Dec may order ako so punta  JRS na mas suki dahil cheaper. Sabihan ba akong sa LBC na lang magpadala di na nila kaya at wala daw assurance na maideliver nila on time. Sa LBC wala reklamo pagbigay ko at matagal na 2 days yun lang mas mahal talaga. Isa pang prob sa JRS gusot gusit o yupi na box bago makarating kahit lagyan pa ng fragile lalo pag peak season. May isa pang cheaper courier yung sila mismo pick sa bahay mo pero limited areas pa lang sila I forgot the name basta orange ang pouch nila. So far nakarating naman.

Korek ka dyan sis. Kailangan mo pa ifollow up sakanila kung ano nangyari. then dun mo palang malalaman yun reason. pwede naman sila na tumawag or mag text sa consignee kasi naka indicate naman yun number nun consignee. hindi pa updated ang site nila minsan...

Sino na po naka try ng transportify? yun po kasi gamit ko pag within metro manila, kaso medyo mas pricey nga lang po pero same day delivery sya and monitored din po ang driver's location kaya satisfied naman po kami, pero considering na bulky and heavy items like balikbayan boxes ang ipapadala nyo so much cheaper po talaga sya kasi 250 pesos lang po ang 1st 3km nya.

If need nyo naman po courier para magpadala abroad and dati na po kayo customer ni DHL or FedEx I can help po and can give you 10% discount sa published rate. thank you
