What to know before booking a courier delivery to a camper van

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:

Packing

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.

Insurance

All standard shipments arranged through Eurosender are covered by our standard insurance, but you can easily purchase additional insurance at low prices.

Prohibited and restricted items

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.

Common parcel delivery issues when living in a van and how to avoid them

Wrong details: It happens that you misread the information on the internet, or it was incorrect. To prevent this, always double-check the details that were provided and call ahead.

No access: It might be that there is no direct access to the shelter or camp. Don’t be afraid to call them up again, once you received the shipment confirmation to pass along the information, and to make sure that someone will be there.

Change of plans: It happens that your plans change for various reasons. Of course, you can’t always predict this. But when you know this beforehand, contact us and we might be able to reroute your shipment. Additional costs may arise.

Damaged content: If you have someone else receive and sign off on your parcel, the receptionist of the campsite for example, but the content is damaged, then there is nothing much to do because for the courier the parcel was accepted. Ask the receiver to inspect the parcel, and even look inside before signing for it.

How to receive mail when living as a nomad?

If you look around in your neighbourhood or when you are on the road, you see that there are actually many ways to receive mail when living as a nomad. It’s just a matter of finding them! You might want to look ahead when travelling from one place to another, and search the internet for possible locations to where your parcel can be shipped from or to. Here are a few possibilities:
Local post office

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.

Parcel shops

Some couriers have parcel shops and parcel lockers all over major cities. They form a very simple solution to your problem. Our core service is door-to-door shipping, but if you contact us for more information, we will do our best to help you!

Dedicated office

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.

RV parks and campsites

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.

Shelters and charities

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!

Family and friends

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.

Which address do I give when shipping parcels to an RV?

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:

  1. Country
    Choose the country of pick-up/delivery.
    Ex.: United Kingdom
  2. Name & Surname
    Add the full name of the sender/ receiver/ pick-up location.
    Ex.: Skelwith Fold Caravan Park
  3. Address
    Fill out the address in full.
    Ex.: Skelwith Fold 5
  4. Additional info – Optional
    This is where you add additional information like the name of the receiver.
    Ex.: att Antoine Mark
  5. Zip code
    Add the zip code, please double check if it’s the right one.
    Ex.: LA22 0HY
  6. Town/city
    Add the full name of the town or city.
    Ex.: Ambleside
  7. Phone number
    Add the phone number of the sender/receiver.
    Ex.: +44 15394 32277
