Default Do people get mail order stuff sent to their physical addresses?

I guess I have two questions, my rented P.O. Box is small, just room for letters and maybe a small book at most.

What would happen if I didnt use the P.O. Box for a delivery of say - shirts from the UK, and just had apartment nr, apartment name and location

or

If I did use the P.O. Box number and the parcel couldnt go in., what would happen then?


I'm really not being daft here. I asked the guy at the mail place at Tecom the same questions and he didnt seem to know what would happen.

If you want to order stuff from the UK/US get Aramax Shop & Ship, they deliver straight to your door

What would happen if you got a large parcel, is that the postie would put in your mail box a small reicept informing you to collect the item for the nearest post office depending where your po box is. simple really

1. It doesn't matter the size of your PO BOx. If you order something the post office will put a slip in your box notifying you of its arrival. You will then have to collect it from your post office or maybe the Main Post Office, where it will be opened by customs in front of you!.

2. The alternative is to use a courier such as DHL as the postal service don't do deliveries to homes/offices.
