    Shipping Question

    Advertisements



    Is there anyway to arrange for your barrels to be delivered to your apartment before you get there? My barrels are supposed to arrive a week before I do. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I don't think that is possible, because you have to fill out a form giving the delivery guys permission to pick it up. I was in the same boat, and the day I arrived, I filled out the form at the little place across from the main gates, and the next day they retrieved it for me, and I had it that night. Once they deliver it, you will get the bill for it too. I had two seperate ones so far, and each was around 200 EC to get delivered. That includes, I think, 80EC for delivery, and the other 120 EC was for custom charges.

    I also don't know if they would even be able to get into your apartment to leave it. And you really don't want it sitting outside of your place before you get there...my friend has stuff in his room before he got here, and the door was left unlocked and he was missing minor things here and there from his shipment..

    Your barrels will be stored at the place they arrive in rosseau until you hire a driver to go pick it up for you, which is quite easy to do. You will be charged a very minimal fee for them to keep the barrels over in the storage until you get here. Once you come here, call a reliable driver, and he will go pick it up for you as long as he has a written note from you saying that its okay for him to pick up the barrels on your behalf.

    I was in the same situation when I got here and was thinking about the same thing like you are. You do not need them to deliver it to your apartment before you get here as long as you are able to wait 1-2 business days without your stuff after you get here.
    If you aint got it in your genes, sweat it out.

    Perhaps the rules have changed but we got our barrels (6 of them) delivered in our house a week or two BEFORE we arrived. I know they just started this whole written letter thing but I still think you can arrange it. IF your landlord is willing to do it and guarantee to lock it afterward, I don't see any problems. Get number of drivers and see if they can pick it up without the written consent. PM met and I can give you a couple of reliable and honest drivers' numbers.

    Hey guys, so which address should we ship the barrels to? Should we just address them to the school since we have to have a driver pick them up from the shipping facility?

    ship them to your address at school. Once they arrive in Dominica, they will let the post office know it has arrived and they will post it outside the office to let you know its here. Then you call a driver to pick them up and bring it to your place of residence.
