Zihua Amazon deliveries ?

by Casa Juan @, Tuesday, August 11, 2020, 23:42 (108 days ago)

I checked the index but the entries were from 2016.

Was wondering if anyone has recent - past three months experience receiving Amazon deliveries in Zihua? More specifically what is the procedure when no one is present at the residence? Is a card left at a door with a number to call.

I live off the street grid with no nombre de calle so I need to use a neighbor's house that is on a signed street.

We use DHL's address in town as the address for delivery. Then we go there to pick it up. Works like a charm!

I placed two different orders with amazon US the end of July. Received orders within four day's from DHL. Somebody has to sign for the deliveries. Security signed for me and brought the package to my gate. Before Covid DHL would deliver to my casa. Same process for amazon MX.....

We rec'd a DHL delivery yesterday. The driver always calls the telephone number on the order to make sure we are home. If not, he will bring it later or the following day. Arqui, a delightful guy. Tip? You bet!

I never had a problem with Amazon deliveries in Zih. They found my place which is not easy to do.

Estafeta provides the same level of service. Amazon Prime uses both with free delivery on most things sometimes even from the States.

We have had great success with DHL, FedEx. and Estafeta. Estafeta even has a $10 delivery from the US with eBay for many items.

These services generally call when they are close to see if we are home and exactly where we are located.

We had a horrible experience with UPS, they didn't call, claimed that they had a valid signature and our credit cards were gone. We avoid UPS when possible.

Correos de Mexico do a reasonable job too.

I am so glad for these replies as my place on la Ropa does not have a visible number. In fact I don't even know what it is (it's not on the lease and I keep forgetting to ask).Thank you. Now to order stuff!

Not this morning. We saw the pancho that looked like it might have been from a Canadian hockey team, but got distracted by the CAPAZ failed repair in the street in front!

We'll look manana.

Thank you. You were right about the Team Canada poncho. A street vendor had one within a day of Canada winning so I had to buy one.

If he says that he may never receive his packages. You just told him to say "to a female pig of the dolphins".

Most package delivery services are now using Google Maps, which of course has my address wrong. But I always get my deliveries by using Mexican-style directions such as "cerca de Los Delfines", which is a known La Ropa landmark, even though I don't believe that fountain has worked for over 20 years. B-)

HOLY S==T!!! I normally proof my postings well, but obviously I had been drinking mezcal.

We walk by the dolphins several times a day, and in all of our years, never saw it as a fountain. Bet it was cool.

Missing your daily post today.

Good thing we straightened that out. And the dolphins are a fountain? Hmmm. Fortunately for my furniture deliveries the stores spoke English and I provided a picture.
