Your delivery address in Constance Registration
Want to order something on the Internet, but are unwilling to pay Swiss postal and Customs handling charges? Does your seller refuse to deliver to Switzerland because of the extra paperwork, or does your family have to pay high rates for forwarding when they want to send birthday gifts?
No problem. You can have your Internet orders sent to my “delivery address” here in Constance. Located in the centre of Constance, we are a 5-minute walk from the Swiss border and little more than 1 minute away from Constance’s main railway station. It’s a convenient way to pick up your orders.
While it’s not a “must”, you can combine the collection of your order with a shopping trip in downtown Constance. The most interesting shops are only a couple of minutes away on foot.
Please send us an e-mail with your first name, your last name, your address and your telephone number. You will receive a reply from us containing the delivery address and how to address your order. From this moment on, you can use the address for all your Internet purchases.
As soon your parcel arrives, you will receive a message by e-mail, and you can pick up your goods or collect your parcels if you have sent out more than one order. A safe is also available for high-value items.
