Troubles when shipping souvenirs from your trip and how to solve them
Check some of the most common struggles people face when mailing souvenirs home from overseas and how to avoid them:
High shipping prices
Sometimes, the cost of mailing exceeds the value of the souvenirs and gifts. You can choose to ship by post, if time is not an issue, or you can check the immediate price for your route with our booking tool.
Many people complain about failed pickups or irresponsible carriers. Eurosender cooperates only with vetted couriers and leading shipping companies so you can rest assured your packages are in safe hands.
Lost or damaged parcels
It is unpleasant, but sometimes packages get lost or damaged during transit. Still, when shipping through Eurosender, your goods are automatically insured with a basic coverage. When shipping more expensive items, you can purchase extra insurance during the booking process.
Delays in deliveries
When booking with Eurosender, you get the estimated delivery time which is usually 2-3 working days. Moreover, every shipment gets a unique tracking number so you can check online the status of your parcel.
