DHL or other courier service to Stoupa/Agh Nik

Post by omegendorph » Thu May 17, 2018 2:45 pm

I'm sure someone must have asked this in the past, but are there any international courier services i.e. DHL, FedEx etc. delivering to the Stoupa area? I need to urgently send some spare parts to a friend in Thalames and regular mail has not been very reliable for packages in the past.

thanks

I've had tools etc delivered by various couriers and they all work ok but you need to be pro active as the receiver!
1. Make sure there is a mobile phone number on the package.
2. Use the tracking, and when you see it has arrived in Athens phone the Athens office of the company and get a new tracking number (this is because they normaly put it into the hands of a more local courier ((very often ACS). Also ask for the phone number of that courier.
3. phone the local courier with your new tracking number and find out what day they're coming down to Mani.

Easy!!

I guess this is definitely the main thing. Never missed a parcel neither by post or courier...

Great, thanks everybody, I use the Platanos Taverna in Thalames as mail drop because it is pretty much open 24/7

Just as a follow up wanted to let everyone know that it worked like a charm with DHL, 6 days transit from Rome to Thalames with no problems.
