delivery address service?

Yes, I get pick stuff up at both all the time because I do not have a street address. They are within walking distance of each other and apparently there is a good small restaurant behind DHL.


1.5km is a little impractical for me to park at one and walk to the other.

I'm getting conflicting information. Last week my son went into the DHL office (the number listed on the services page here is not working) to ask that very question and was told "no, we don't do that". Obviously if there is an issue with delivery--like you are not there to sign--and the driver has to return it, then yes, they will have you come in and pick it up, but as a regular service, no.

So, now I have two questions. Does DHL provide a receiving service or not? Does anyone?

He didn't ask for their phone number while there? I've updated the numbers in my listing. One is a cell number and the other is their national number. They also have a website that I list.

As far as I know all package delivery companies with local offices will receive packages to be picked up. DHL has been here longer than any other service except the post office. They are also the most expensive. Nowadays you do NOT need a street address to have a package delivered. You use the Google Map on their website to pinpoint the delivery location, and you use descriptive directions to assist the delivery person. Those of us who reside in Mexico are accustomed to this even with the post office. I recommend registering with them on their website before using their map location feature. I've used it several times to locations with difficult addresses, and I've also received packages using this feature.
