Delivery time - Parcelforce Worldwide

Wed Jun 06, 2012 4:13 pm

This isnt a rant or moan, just trying to gauge when my RPi is likely to arrive.

17th May - RPi ordered through RS for delivery in mainland UK.

31st May - email from Parcelforce Worldwide "You have a shipment being sent from RS COMPONENTS LTD that is due to be despatched on 31/05/2012 using our Express 24 service. The tracking reference number is ILXXXXXXX and it comprises of 1 item.

6th June - still no RPi

When the tracking reference hyperlink is clicked, I get directed to Parcelforce webpage and then onto a blank page.

I appreciate that it has been a long Bank Holiday weekend, but the express 24 service got me slightly excited.

Anyone else in this situation? Parcelforce will be contacted tomorrow.

Similar senario for me. Mine turned up today, tracking website only updated today and gave a delivery date of 1st June. ParcelFarce strikes again!

At least we are lucky I read some people received and empty box!

Parcel Force just shoved the box through my letterbox (mangling the box somewhat, although at least the Pi survived) - their tracking page claims it was signed for (it wasn't, I was out of the country at the time) and even has a scribble that is presumably the driver's signature.

Seriously unimpressed.

Had the exact same email from parcel force world wide last night stating 24 hour express delivery.

Waiting in all day today and nothing.

The tracking information doesnt show anything.

Has anyone actually recieved theres the day after the parcel force email?,i have a feeling they are just
being sent by standard delivery eg 3-5 days.

Parcel force took 7 days to deliver mine from RS. They sent it to the wrong depot meaning I was not in when they finally tried to deliver it the next day. Here is the kicker, as it was the first attempt they kept the package on the van, when a package is on the van they will not go and get it for you if you turn up at the depot with the card. So mine was sat in a van for 5 days! (because of the long UK bank holiday)

I have had nothing but problems with Parcelforce. Last xmas they left my mums Kindle I had brought her in a puddle out the front of the house! Lucky Amazon wrap their goods well. I think it was very close to leaking into the box. Lucky I came home on time that day.

Yes me. My wife received it as I was in London - upon walking through the door this afternoon I got the stern "WHAT have you ordered now?" :roll:

So I've got an order-confirmation email dated 18/5 saying delivery within 3 weeks (making before today)
Fired up the laptop, two emails from parcelforce, saying it's on its way.
So the door-bell went this morning. Parcelforce, two parcels.
So now I've got to check if I've paid twice. If not, what should I do?

it's always handy to have a 2nd RPi for when you break the 1st one ;-p
i.e. develop on one then push the changes when it works to the 2nd ...

Check if one of your neighbour hasn't ordered one too ! You can make someone happy.
But the second pi was meant to make an other one happy too ...

OK so they've only taken money for one. I think an email to RS is called for. They can have a second lot of dough, but I aint send the second Pi back! It's mine keep yer 'ands orf!

A colleague ordered from RS at the end of May & his has arrived. My order with CPC Farnell was placed in February & still no sign of Pi. When I rang in May they said "all orders will be fulfilled before the end of June" - still hopeful.

Hi, since this is the first hit on delivery times of raspberry pi I can add the time from when Farnell/element14 sent the package until it arrived to me in Sweden was 9 days (shipped Wednesday the 26th of June and arrived 5th of July)

In case anyone else in Sweden wonders how long the delivery time is :)
