I was scheduled for a delivery but unfortunately my plans changed and I was not at home. When I called the courier back he was helpful and did all he could to make sure I got the parcel same day. I’ve used DHL several times in the past and they never failed. Thank you for great service. Keep up :)

This is the second time I try to leave my review, thus it is a bit shorter. Please contact me if you want to have a brief. I will not use your services again for business if this is the state of your service. Here a note from my secretary: "The parcel still has not arrived  despite me speaking to DHL Customer Service in France every day for the last week. The status has not changed on the tracking results even though I have given DHL Ashley’s’ phone number so they could make contact with him. Ashley says he has received zero communication from DHL. No card was left at his address when DHL attempted the delivery and no phone call follow up. Apparently the parcel is at a pick up point close to Ashley’s house but Ashley has not been told where or the process to collect. It is a shambles. It seems I cannot request delivery to the house, because the system says ‘awaiting collection by recipient as requested’ – this is untrue since recipient has had no communications with DHL. Can you request the parcel is returned to London please?"

Very disappointed - parcel never arrived - customer service was not able to help, even though they could track the parcel to one of their delivery centers
We had posted a parcel on the 13 of Sept. (which contained birthday present for the Vice Presdient of our business unit), which should have been delivered to his home ... Read more
We had posted a parcel on the 13 of Sept. (which contained birthday present for the Vice Presdient of our business unit), which should have been delivered to his home address. Seemingly DHL tried to deliver it already on the next day but non one was home. The parcel was then marked in error for collection. The receiver however claims to have never received any follow up communication. My secretary called in every day to inquire. As the parcel was marked in error for collection, we had no right to demand another delivery, which I am frankly appalled by. Needless to say the birthday present is quite obsolete now and we are trying now to reroute the parcel back to the office again. While DHL personnel was seemingly polite, the processes simply don't work and I will not use the service again for business reasons. Here the respective quote from my secretary: "The parcel still has not arrived  despite me speaking to DHL Customer Service in France every day for the last week. The status has not changed on the tracking results even though I have given DHL Ashley’s’ phone number so they could make contact with him. Ashley says he has received zero communication from DHL.

Bit of a problem....we're just arriving in Portsmouth in our ferry from Santander and get a call from our daughter, with whom we've been travelling in Spain for a few days before dropping her in Satander yesterday (she's staying in Spain for another night before flying home). We learn she has left her passport in our car, just arriving in Portsmouth on Tuesday September 18. While my wife and I have been on the high seas our stuck-in-Spain daughter and her sister in the UK have been busy working on a fix. They find DHL in Eastleigh, just off our route home to South Wales. They direct us there and we find the depot is still open, even though it's late in the working day. And then a wonderfully helpful, cheerful and positive young lady behind the counter - sorry, I should have asked her name - fixed the problem by despatching our daughter's passport ASAP to Spain. Please pass her our most sincere thanks, not least on behalf of stranded daughter who received her passport before noon next day. Great service and excellent value, very much appreciated.

Absolutely disgusted to see the driver stand at his side door and launch parcels to the back of the van. Then came across mine, didn’t even attempt to see if we were in, I was just about to open the door when he opened my porch and yes guess what ?? Just threw it in !! Thankfully it wasn’t a breakable item but he doesn’t know that when he’s throwing them about. Shocking behaviour !!

I only used this over priced Company because i assumed my items would get to the overseas address with no issues or drama...how wrong was I. Item arrived damaged, late and my Friend had to go and collect the parcel because DHL could not find the address. This was the first time I had used DHL. And would most definately be the last. The way this has been dealt with has made me have a bitter taste in my mouth. I even took out the insurance cover, which seems to mean nothing. I have had to go through email after email sending proof after proof when my receipt should be enough. Make sure you read the small print. A very devious Company. I will never use them again. I will stick with the Post Office. Never had issues or Drama with them.
