Hi there,

I ordered a box from Pass the Parcel ( ) on the 28th and it still hasnt arrived. I know it is in a Xmas/New Year period so there is a lot of holidays, but they did say 2 working days.

Has anybody used them before? Good service or what?

Thanks :)

They seem to be a branch of Post haste, so i guess they should be a little decent ?

Pass the Parcel… So, where has it come from?Well, it is a branch of Post Haste Couriers…

Post Haste is a courier company that has spent over three decades at the forefront of the New Zealand courier industry. With over 240 Post Haste couriers servicing 360+ towns and cities in New Zealand, we can deliver your parcels with ease.

I have always found them to be good. But it could just be that time of the year when people are on holiday and less staff
