PREFERRED NEIGHBOUR
Set up a preferred neighbour and never miss another parcel

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.
Are there other members* in your household who would like to use the neighbour recipient service? No problem, because you can specify up to four other people* whose shipments we will also deliver to your preferred neighbour.
With DHL, you can.

Our recommendation for you

The health of everyone is of utmost importance to us. We offer you the service of receiving shipments without personal contact.
Join in and protect yourself and our employees:
If possible, use a storage location or a Packstation for receiving parcels.

Your benefits

  • 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.

Set a preferred neighbour for individual shipments: If you wish for only one parcel to be dropped off with a preferred neighbour, then choose the service directly in your parcel notification, track & trace or the Post & DHL app.
