This post is for Ireland residents: “Parcel Motel offers a ‘virtual address’ that allows you to manage your online shopping deliveries easily. Combined with convenient collection and drop-off locations, Parcel Motel is the perfect delivery solution offering you flexibility and value for money.”
Why is this services beneficial? Well, imagine you come across a product on Amazon that you want to purchase but quickly realise the seller does not ship to Ireland. Now what? What you can do is avail to Parcel Motel in this instance and include your Parcel Motel UK address in the shipping details section within Amazon. Parcel Motel will then forward your shipment from your UK address to your Irish address and only charge a small fee. Keep in mind that the fee can increase depending on the site of the order. If the order is very expensive, you can insure it via Parcel Motel’s insurance policy. Another reason I like Parcel Motel so much is because it allows me the ability to share an address for mailing purposes without having to disclose my actual home address. BIG security perk right there am I right?!
One thing I LOVE about this service is that I can now share my mailing address to people I don’t know very well.
