Fastways are not, unless they get their own way. Let me explain. On Tuesday I paid a Fastway courier driver $20, got an official receipt, and entrusted a computer to him, to be delivered to Bondi in Sydney. Today I got home to find a Fastway note in my letterbox, stating that I had a package to be picked up at their depot in Unanderra. Beauty, it's fixed already, I think, but just to be sure, I rang the lady's name on the docket. No, it hasn't been fixed at all, it's been returned because the 'person to whom it's adressed refused delivery'. Strange seeing he's the one who asked for it. So I ring him. He hasn't seen the box, but he wasn't home when the courier called; the courier phoned him, and he asked the courier if he could deliver it after 4:00pm. He heard nothing. Next thing I know it's back down here. So I went to pick it up and find out what the deal was, since they already had my money. Here's what you need to know when you deal with this sleazy excuse for a service company. The Fastway man in the Eastern suburbs is in Bondi at 9:30am and 2:00pm each day. If he can't deliver your parcel at those exact times, he won't at any other time, and, at least in this case, will lie about why it hasn't been delivered. I retrieved my parcel, called in at the Post Office in Oak Flats and despatched it again, for $6.95 and guaranteed delivery to the Post Office nearest the address of my contact, tomorrow morning. All I can say is, just as well it was only $20.
