In case you notice that the system displays the same message for a few days, it could be due to delays in updating the system.
Estimated delivery time – courier to Germany
The estimated delivery time that you receive is –as the name says- “estimated”. That means that the delivery of the package might arrive before or after the estimated time. For example, a package sent from mainland Spain to Germany arrives at its destination in 3 business days whereas shipments traveling from Sweden to Germany can be delivered in one (1) business day. There are various reasons why a package can arrive late at its destination. The same goes if there are any National Holidays between the pick-up and delivery dates.
Label and paperwork – courier to Germany
The label is crucial for a successful delivery. It provides vital information for the shipment to be moved from one station to another before finally being delivered to the recipient. The label on the package should contain the name and address of the sender as well as of the recipient, different shipment details (size, the total weight, the number of pieces etc.), and other details. If you want your package to be collected in Germany, you are not required to print the label yourself.
Delivery considerations for courier services to Germany
Things to remember or to pay attention to when booking courier services to Germany:
Postal codes – German postal codes are numeric, consisting of five digits. There are only three states (Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein, and Saarland), in addition to the city states, that lie completely within one postal zone, while three more states (Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Baden-Wurttemberg) cover four postal zones.
Name on the doorbell – in Germany, it is required to have your name on the doorbell. If the surname in the address does not match any of the names on the mailboxes, the courier driver will not know which apartment to deliver the mail to.
Accurate details about the shipment –Any mistakes might lead to delays.
Our couriers are not able to send to P.O. boxes.
The service is door-to-door. No need to leave the comfort of your house and find a drop-off point for your shipment.
Tips to ensure a successful delivery:
Have someone at the address in the given time frame.
Appoint another person, if you cannot be at the delivery address at the delivery time.
Make sure you are reachable in case the courier decides to call you.
Clearing German customs
German customs are very strict when it comes to the necessary paperwork. Having clear precise information will help ensure timely clearance of your international shipments sent to Germany. Lack of clear information can also result in extra clearance fees, so it is crucial to be informed on that subject. Something worth mentioning is that items sent to Germany as a gift can be considered tax free if their value is under 45 euros. Last but not least, it goes without saying that there are no customs duties to be paid when buying goods coming from within the European Union.
