Are you searching for cheap and reliable courier services to Greece? There is no need to spend endless hours comparing the different prices that courier providers offer online. Eurosender has developed a system that automatically calculates final prices for every individual shipping route. In this way, you can find the most competitive prices for sending a parcel or pallet to Athens, Thessaloniki, Patras or any other city, town, an island in Greece.
Door-to-door courier services to Greece and almost any destination in Europe:
The booking process is easy, even for new users, since it only requires just a few clicks and approximately 3 minutes of your time. To begin with, you will have to declare whether you’re a private or business user. Afterwards, you will need to follow a few simple steps:
Once you are done with the payment, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with the order details. You should keep in mind that, if you don’t know if your shipment qualifies as a package, pallet or container, you can click on “Other” and tell us what you plan to ship. We’ll then pick the most appropriate option for you.
Do not forget that you can also create your own account in our website. Whether you are an individual or you represent a business, you will benefit from the exclusive pre-paid solution. The pros for opening an account are endless – and it is completely free!
Transit information – courier to Greece
After the service is booked, you will receive an e-mail that will include a tracking number. With this number, you will be able to track your shipment online, until it finally reaches its destination. It works quite simple: Every time your parcel is scanned at a new depot or location, the tracking system gets updated. If you notice that the shipment remains at the same shipping stage for many days, you can always contact us.
Estimated delivery time – courier to Greece
In our platform, you can also find the estimated delivery time of your shipment. For example, shipping a parcel from Germany to Greece requires 5 business days. Unsurprisingly, this time is only estimated and does not guarantee that the delivery will take place at this exact time.
Sometimes, the delivery can be delayed for a long period of time. Why could this happen? Unforeseeable situations that are beyond the carrier’s control can affect the time of delivery. Bad weather can block the roads or slow down the transit and cause a delayed delivery. If you are planning to send a parcel to an island in Greece, strong winds might prohibit the transportation of the shipment for security reasons. In big cities, like Athens, strikes might occur, which can cause similar problems.
Label and paperwork – courier to Greece
Packages sent through Eurosender should always carry a label, whether they are sent to Greece or in any other part of Europe. The label provides important information for the shipment to be moved from one station to another, before finally arriving at the chosen destination. It should display the name and address of the sender, as well as of the recipient and other details.
If your package will be collected in Greece, you are not required to print the label yourself. You can learn more about labels by visiting our blog.
Tips to ensure a successful delivery:
Clearing Greek customs
Transactions between residents of EU member states are not considered imports or exports and therefore they are not charged any duty. The duties for non-European countries are quite low, especially for manufactured goods (4.2% on average for the general rate). Aren’t you sure whether you can ship specific items to Greece? Maybe you are interested in shipping alcohol or cigarettes from another country? You can check our blog and learn more.
