Receiving shipments while on the road

For the first time we have been told we cannot receive a delivery while at a campground.

Our older grey is having difficulty with the steps into our motorhome. At the campground we're in until Friday, the lot is slopped so that the step is even higher. We were all set to order adjustable dog steps to help her get past the first high step. Plus it will be helpful for both dogs to get in the back of the CRV.

I called the office and was told they don't accept Amazon deliveries. Wow!

Ok, so, what do you do? We could put it off, but it is getting more stressful watching Gracie struggle.

Try Amazon Lockers

If you have an order entered, look at the delivery address portion during checkout. If you select the Locker option it will show Amazon lockers nearest your location. If that location works for you, then thatís your solution.
Another similar solution is FedEx Office or UPS Stores, but call first to see if you can use that address.

Find a nearby Amazon Locker location and have it delivered there?

Thanks for the info. I knew I could return things at some locations. I was not aware of the "Hubs".

When I don't order from Amazon for longer than a few days, they think I died. I get everything at home but didn't really think about getting stuff at a locker. This was a good post and getting something shipped to a locker is something to keep in mind when on the road.

Thanks

And a while back a fellow was kicked out of a campground for meeting the delivery driver outside the campground.

I would not stay at any place that would not let me have Fed-EX or Amazon delivered to the office.

As noted, you can use an Amazon locker near you for pick up.

I would like to know the name of the campground so that I can avoid it in our travels.

I have to say, I don't understand why a campground would not accept packages for their customers. When I worked in the apartment business we accepted packages for all our residents, all 308 apartments. It was not a big deal and people appreciated the service. Yes, this was years before Amazon became a thing but still.

A campground or RV park accepting packages would have far less impact on staff than we ever had. Why can't they offer this as a service? I guess those days of customer service really are over.

The receiving of shipments at a campground is just the beginning for some of the permanent tenants. Next thing is this will become their address of residence and then here comes the personal mail.

Where we are now will accept packages but no personal mail. It is returned to sender.

So, the key seems to be to not take advantage of the situation. If you are there as a permanent tenant, don't be cheap, rent a postal mailbox.

We were staying in Newport, OR last year for 3 weeks and needed to order something on Amazon. There were no Amazon Lockers in the area, but the local RiteAid was a delivery location.

How do you find Amazon locker locations? I searched on my account for "locker locations" and was taken to Ring doorbell. Then got a pop-up to search "New Amazon pickup locations", tried it and got listing of obscure book titles. Guess they are keeping the locker locations a secret.

I think this link should take you there https://www.amazon.com/ulp
Should be able to just enter your current location and see a map and description of close locations.

I was at a thousand trails campground in NC for a month and they charged $5 per package received ($10 for large bulky packages). I would have gone bankrupt. I used both Amazon Lockers at a truck stop down the road some, and a UPS office to receive my packages for me and I'd run over every few days to pick them up. Both options showed up in the delivery locations section when I placed my orders. There was a button/link there to show what was available in my area. I clicked on it and picked the location I thought would work best for me. I liked the truck stop amazon locker location best as it was open 24x7. All told, it worked out very well for me and saved me a good bit of money, despite all the money I was spending on the orders themselves.


Thanks,
Joe
