What happens if i leave a package in the paketstation box?

9 posts in this topic

I have 3 packages in a paketstation box to pick up, but i do not one to take one of them. In fact, that one should return back to the sender. So wondering what happens if i open the paketstation box and take only 2 of them and close the door afterward? Would the remaining one be thrown away later or sent back to the sender?

If you open the box all packages inside will be considered delivered.   Take all packages and return the one you do not want following the return process, it is quite simple.

You forgot an option:   Stolen by delivery driver who opens the box when making the next delivery.

 

The DHL website does say however that if you don't collect a package that it will be sent back to the sender.  But this assumes that you don't collect anything in the box, as soon as you open it then it will register all packages as collected.  And hence, if you then try to claim a refund from the sender he will point to the fact that the DHL website stated that it was delivered.

Wird Ihr Paket in eine Filiale gebracht, lagern wir es 7 Werktage lang für Sie; in der Packstation 9 Tage. Innerhalb dieser Zeit können Sie die Sendung abholen. Sollten Sie das Paket innerhalb dieser Frist nicht abholen können, wird es leider zurück an den Absender geschickt.

Sollten Sie für einen längeren Zeitraum keine Möglichkeit haben, Ihre Sendungen in einer Filiale oder an einer Packstation abzuholen, nutzen Sie am besten unsere kostenlosen Services Wunschnachbar oder Wunschort. So können Sie Ihre Pakete sicher und nach Wunsch empfangen – auch wenn Sie einmal nicht zu Hause sind.


 

 

 

@Krieg gave the best advice on how to deal with it.

BTW, as another relevant question, when i receive this today:

"Ihr Paket mit der Sendungsnummer XXXXXXXXXX ist angekommen. Sie können es ab sofort in der Filiale XX innerhalb der nächsten 7 Werktage abholen.", Dose it mean that i can go to the post branch today or i need to wait till tomorrow?

But if i do not open the box (7-9 days) they'll be returned back to the sender, is that right?
