Designate a neighbour in your immediate neighbourhood with whom we can leave your shipments if you are not at home. Either for individual shipments or permanently for all parcels. And all this is possible with DHL's preferred delivery service.

With DHL, you can.
- Receive shipments even when you're not home
- Parcels are delivered directly to your neighbour
- You define who can receive your parcels
- Allow up to four other members in your household* to benefit from your preferred neighbour service
How to use the preferred neighbour service
1. Select a preferred neighbour
Provide information for a preferred neighbour in your immediate area who is willing to receive shipments for you when you're not home. You can modify your selection at any time in your customer account.
Tip: Specify up to four other members in your household so that they can use the neighbour recipient service.
2. Delivery to neighbour
If no one answers the door at your home, then the parcel will be dropped off with your preferred neighbour.
3. Receive notification
You'll be informed by email about the delivery to your neighbour. The deliverer will also put a notification slip in your mailbox.
