You will then be asked to enter the sender’s details. Enter the name, address and contact details of the person sending the item to you. Your address will already be pre-populated as the receiver’s details. Hit Next when you are finished.
Then you will need to enter the details of the item/s you will be receiving. Follow the steps of the rest of the consigning process, selecting the item to send, the Delivery Option and also the dangerous goods confirmation.
Next, arrange for the pick-up of the item. You can either set the time yourself, by hitting the ‘View Details’ button once the consignment is created, or you can let the sender do this by following the email link they will receive.
To have the sender set the collection time:
The sender will receive an email containing a link directing them to myFastway where they can view or update the pick-up date and cycle. (Fastway couriers generally operate over two cycles a day, AM and PM.) The link in the email will be valid for 48 hours by default however you can adjust this in your Options tab. This will also direct the sender to print their label/s.
To set the collection time yourself:
To confirm the pick-up date and cycle, you can view the consignments under the View Recent tab. Once you have selected the consignment to arrange pick up for, select either the Next Available or Preferred Date and cycle for the pick-up.
Once you have set the date, it will be displayed against this consignment, you can also go in and change the date and cycle again by selecting Change Collection Date.
If you want to resend the confirmation email to the Sender so they can update the collection time, simply select Resend Confirmation Email.
One of our friendly local couriers will arrive to collect your item on the agreed date to be brought back to you.
