Simply the best.

No-one offers a better burger than Burger King! Always delicious food, even if it is more expensive than most other fast food restaurants. I would recommend the XL Bacon Double Cheese Burger, super-sized.


No complaints.

I have only ordered one item from box.co.uk, but it was a very easy process and I received my item quickly and at a good value. My item was delivered by Royal Mail.


Never had a problem, great delivery service.

I've never had any issues with DPD. I usually order expensive and fragile computer components from companies which usually ship via DPD, and they have all been delivered excellently. They email you in the morning to let you know the specific hour they will be delivering to your address and they have never been wrong. I don't have anything bad to say about them!

Non-delivery and inhuman lack of intelligence

I have had two online deliveries where Hermes were the courier the website chose to use (mandmdirect.com and amazon.co.uk). In my first delivery, I ordered £100 of clothing items. A few days after my order I decided to go out to the chip shop and as I exited my house I was surprised to find a bag in a puddle outside. There was no notification that the delivery had been attempted and the tracking information online stated that it had been "Delivered to secure location", which apparently means next to a main road and public footpath. Thankfully I saw it before anyone took it, however I was shocked that someone would leave such valuable content outside! For my second order from Amazon, I ordered two books. I didn't even know Amazon used Hermes as all my previous orders had been delivered by Royal Mail. About a week after placing the order I decided to check on Amazon to see its status, and I was shocked again to see that the tracking information said it had been "Delivered to secure location" several days ago! Of course, nothing was posted through the letterbox and there was nothing outside my door. I contacted Amazon and they have arranged to redeliver the items for free, but this time using Royal Mail. I cannot comprehend why any business would choose this courier when all I can find is 1-star reviews about non-delivery!
