Parcelforce new ‘Quote and Book’ and Tracking updates

ParcelforceParcelforce have introduced a new ‘Quote and Book’ service to make it easier for you to find the best price and service option for a parcel delivery. You can now get a quote; compare delivery options and prices at a glance; check the validity of the postcode entered; and book a collection – all in one place

They used feedback gathered from customer research to create the new function, which combines two separate online services into one.

Better tracking report for Parcelforce

Another recent development is its changes to the way information about tracked items is displayed on the ParcelForce website. The new display includes:

  • An easy-to-understand visual display status bar showing where a parcel is in its journey – both in the UK and overseas
  • New user-friendly enhanced summary messages explaining the last tracked location of the parcel and next steps
  • A new proof-of-delivery signature that is automatically displayed on the same screen when available
  • Easy-to-understand, on-screen messaging

The Parcelforce website flow is miles better than the old incarnation. However if you have a parcel heavier then 2kg you’ll find prices for items up to 30kg way cheaper for the same ParcelForce service at SenditNow.com (Don’t tell Parcelforce I told you!).
