Before shipping to a camper on the road, there are a few things you have to do in order to avoid failed deliveries. Take a look at the most essential things for a successful parcel delivery when living in a van:
When the courier comes to pick up your package it has to be packed already. With our detailed packing instructions, you can pack your shipment fast and professionally.
All standard shipments arranged through Eurosender are covered by our standard insurance, but you can easily purchase additional insurance at low prices.
Always be 100% sure that your shipment doesn’t contain any prohibited or restricted items to avoid failed delivery or legal issues when shipping parcels to an RV.
Every town has a postal office and, in many cases, you can send your parcel from or to them. You should call them ahead and double check which services might be available to you. Be sure to ask for information about how long they will keep the parcel, which address you should give, etc.
If you already know with which courier you’ll ship your parcel, or which courier will be delivering your package, you can give the address of one of their local offices. For example, all shipments booked with Eurosender within Italy or from Italy to another EU country are handled by BRT. Knowing this, you can call BRT ahead and ask if it would be okay to list their local depot or branch as a pickup or delivery address.
Another way to receive mail when living as a nomad is to organize a parcel delivery or pick up from the campsite or RV park where you will be staying. The office of a campsite is almost always attended for receiving new guests. This surely will help their guests with a small thing like receiving mail when they are living as a nomad.
If there is a charity in the city you are visiting, they might be willing to accept your parcel. In exchange, you can give them a nice donation!
Although you won’t receive your parcel until you get back from your trip, an easy alternative to parcel delivery to a camper van is to ask friends or family to receive the parcel for you.
It might seem like an easy task, but many people do not fill out the address section the right way, even when shipping parcels to an RV. Addresses should be written out fully and clearly. You have to state not only the zip code, town, and the street with number but also information like access codes or access instructions:
