I wanted to send a parcel containing clothes to Chennai(pin code 600026) and i checked Blue dart
website and following specifications were mentioned on website.
Service : Surface Line
Origin City : GURGAON
Destination City : CHENNAI
Weight : 10.58 Kgs
Total Shipping Charges : Rs. 231.00
All rates are exclusive of the applicable Fuel Surcharge, Service Tax and Educational Cess and charges for value added features, e.g Demand Draft on Delivery (DOD), Freight on Delivery (FOD), Valuable Cargo Handling Charges (VCHC), Extra Delivery Locations (EDL), Remote Area Surcharge (RAS), Freight on Value (FOV) etc.
the actual weight of my carton was 10kg and 580grams. the dimensions of my box was height 57Cm's*width41Cm's and length was 51Cm's. The customer service was highly pathetic and the customer service representative who answered my call was highly rude and was not even proficient enough to convert this dimensions into feets or inches. as per Blue dart
software which the representative told me the weight of my box was supposed to be 45kg and i have to pay for 45kg which came to around 2500/- rs. I told the rep that when you measure weight on weighing scale you do not bifurcate weight into air weight,volume weight and content weight separately. however Blue dart
was adamant on their stupid software. I feel Blue Dart Express
India Ltd is full of who just believe in testing customers patience and they seriously need Customer Service lessions as they do not have any professionalism in them to listen to what customers have to say or i must say that just to make quick money they ask customers to pay excess weight of 35kg.
When you travel via airlines the cost for excess baggage is Rs 100 to Rs 120 per kg and its more cheaper to take baggage through airlines rather than such STUPID AND IDIOTIC PRICED COURIER COMPANIES WHICH CHARGE YOU EXTRA IN ORDER TO MAKE QUICK BUCKS.
