SKYNET Courier Services

Recommended Posts


Doing business with you is a pleasure.

However, the courier service on this side in South Africa

called SkyNet, are a total shambles.!!

Please note that they called me on Thursday to tell me that

I have to pay Skynet an extra R97 to get my goods released from Customs,

before they will deliver.!

This was never part of the original transaction and I refused to pay it !


When I queried that, Skynet said that they had launched a new project in their business

to recoup money.

After a talk with their Managers they reluctantly told me that they will not charge

me this time.

I had to remind them that at the time of my financial transaction, there was no such

thing as this R97. I paid R350 for delivery charges and that is that !


SkyNEt also need to be reminded that there is such a thing in RSA as the Consumer Protection Act that protects

buyers from such irregular and dishonest behaviour.

Secondly the driver did not obey delivery instructions and has ignored the actual address

on the delivery note, and has gone to the wrong building. I am now chasing him all over the city centre.


I cannot buy again on this web site like this as long as I would have to deal with Skynet.!!!
