Anyone have recommendation for local courier service?

Postby shinri » Tue Nov 08, 2011 5:08 pm

Hi, I need a local courier to pick up birthday cake for me.
Called Ta-Q-bin but the service person sounds like an attachment student... with not much knowledge.. :sweat:

The cake maker have their courier but I find the delivery time too long.
Anyone else have other suggestions?

I thought so too and tried calling them, called 2 to 3 times, no one picked up.
When someone finally did pick up, he hemmed and hawed whenever I asked a question.
How to trust like that? :shrug:

hmm..actually I usually engaged them for normal parcel service or collection, but not a cake lah. And I dont call them, I just enter info at their website and received confirmation via email almost immediately.

Oic.. Maybe their email service is better than call centre operator..
The cake maker's own courier cost $25 lei, I find bit ex..
Think Ta-Q-Bin only cost half the price and very much shorter delivery time too!

Nope, I ordered from a blogshop (Cupcake divinity) but turns out the cake was too sweet... never ordering again
