In this RV Tip Of The Day we will add another option to your ‘bag of tricks’, Amazon Locker.
Fran and I rely mainly on email and facebook etc. for communications with family ‘back home’ and the friends we meet on the road. We pay our bills online and use direct deposit for banking, but we still need to receive mail and packages while on the road. You can read more about how we do it in these articles: Tips for Getting Your Mail on the Road & Getting Your Mail While Full Time RVing
Right now, Amazon Locker may not be all that practical for RVers since they are available in urban areas of a handful of major cities. Not generally places RVers want to spend time. But as Amazon expands the service, it may well become more useful. With a nudge from the RV community, Amazon might well provide lockers in RVing Snowbird areas and major tourist areas.
Even now, it is one more resource you can add… just in case… to ways you receive packages while on the road.
The information below came from Amazon’s website.
Amazon Locker provides you with a self-service delivery location to pick up and return your Amazon.com packages. Lockers are currently available in a variety of locations throughout the U.S.
You can select an Amazon Locker location and pick up your package at a time that’s convenient for you.
Once your package is delivered to the Amazon Locker, you’ll receive an e-mail notification with a unique pickup code that includes the address and open times for your selected Locker location.
When you arrive to collect your package, enter your pickup code or scan the barcode using the barcode scanner and follow the instructions on the screen.
All packages delivered to Amazon Locker locations must be picked up within three business days. If you’re not able to collect your package within this timeframe, the package will be returned to Amazon for a refund.
