FAQ on recorded parcel and signed for delivery services

What is the difference between registered post and recorded delivery?
Registered post is another name for recorded delivery, which means that the courier requests a signature for the delivery. However, please note that international recorded delivery services do not necessarily include tracking, as this is considered a separate feature by many postal and courier services. For postal companies such as Royal Mail, recorded delivery is a part of their Signed For 1st Class and 2nd Class services. With Eurosender, our international letter and parcel recorded delivery services already include tracking in the price! Use the tool to get a quote and send a parcel with recorded delivery in a safe and affordable way.
How long do international recorded or signed for delivery services take?
The transit time depends on the route, the selected signed for delivery service and the method of transport. If you are sending your recorded delivery parcel abroad via Eurosender, you can see the estimated delivery time after inserting your shipping details in our booking engine. This should make sending your recorded delivery parcel easier to arrange.
Can I track a signed for parcel delivery?
Absolutely! Our services include online tracking so that you always know where your package is. Once your order has been confirmed by the courier for collection, we will send you an email with instructions on how to track your signed for parcel delivery. When you see the "out for delivery" tracking status, this indicates that your recipient can expect delivery during the day.
What items can I not send with recorded delivery using the Document Service?
The Document Service is only suitable for sending documents, paper items, and registered mail. See below examples of what you cannot send with recorded delivery using the Document Service:
  • Credit cards or any magnetic card: if a card is detected inside an envelope or parcel, the shipment will be destroyed;
  • Cash, bank cheques;
  • Any small item that is not a document or letter. In this case, you should book an alternative signed for parcel delivery service.
Are signed for delivery services insured?
Yes, basic insurance is included in the prices of our recorded delivery services. Please note that the insurance will only be valid if your shipment complies with the regulations of the courier company. When booking a recorded delivery service with Eurosender, you can choose the option of additional shipping insurance for extra peace of mind.
How long will couriers keep signed for parcels after failed delivery?
It depends on the courier, but usually, they will store signed for parcels for up to 7 days. If the item is not redelivered or collected in that time, it will be returned to the sender. When booking signed for delivery services, it is important to make sure your recipient knows when to expect the delivery and that they can be available to sign for the parcel.
What if my signed for parcel shipment shows as delivered, but did not arrive?
If your tracking page indicates that your signed for parcel was delivered, but you have confirmed with the recipient that nothing was given to them, please contact us, and we will check with the courier. The proof of delivery provided by the courier can help to clarify the situation. Incorrect tracking statuses can sometimes happen due to scanning issues.
