A consignments we entrusted to Skynet was destroyed i.e burnt up, enroute to Cape Town during December and that no one informed us of this fact.

Alternative arrangements and printing had to be done at an extra cost to us, to which we explained to Skynet in a formal letter. To date (3-4 months later) we have received no response from management, only an invoice for these parcels which we will refuse to pay on principal.

I have contacted our sales person, who has informed me that he no longer works for the company, on calling Skynet's offices to speak to a person in charge, I am put through to various people, then told that Management are busy in meetings and to leave a message so they can get back to me. I have yet to hear from Management, and will therefore never use the services of Skynet again.

    And there i was sitting in the Office from 7:09 where Skynet was supposedly came to deliver my books. What annoys me is that Skynet never came and so i phoned to find out what was going on, only to speak to a rude consultant called Florence who had the audacity to tell me that "SHE IS NOT A DRIVER & DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPEND" seriously? I think Skynet needs to train their call centre agents to talk to clients more politely because at that state I was already frustrated about my delivery having not made and the fact that Skynet system says that i was unavailable?? Please Skynet this is totally unacceptable. I need to know where my books are and when i am going to receive my long awaited books!?

    I would advise people not to use skynet. I have been waiting for a parcel for the last 3 days. According to their tracking system, everyday for the last 3 days the parcel gets dispatched to my work address, but gets returned again. I have called the cape town office numerous times and the only reply is that it is being delivered, but i never receive it. I have experienced bad services previously and have nothing good to say about this company.
