I concur on this. I have used them for ten years and never lost anything. Both in Sosua and Bavaro. They are not cheap, but dependable.I've been using EPS for at least 20 years. Not the cheapest, but very reliable. I pick my mail up in the Sosua office. There are also offices in Cabarete and Puerto Plata.
I used EPS. Too expensive and too slow. Then Transexpress. Less expensive and faster than EPS. Now Encargopaq. Least expensive and deliver to your door, takes a little longer than Transexpress but still less time than EPS. None of the services ever lost anything.Used to use EPS. Now I use Encargo Pac. They deliver to your door, seem to be less expensive, and give good customer service.
No. With EPS and most services like it you need to be a member, so to speak. When you sign up for the service you get an identification number and a post office box address as well as an address for packages. When I order something from Amazon, for example, I have it sent to my address for packages in Miami. EPS transports it to the Dominican Republic on its plane, takes it through customs, and delivers it to the Sosua office. They know it goes to Sosua by my identification number. I pick up the parcel at the Sosua office and take it to my apartment. Letters and magazines reach me the same way, except they are sent to my PO box rather than to my package address.Do you have a URL website address for this service? Thank you.
Thanks for mentioning the email, CC, I should have included that myself. At every step, from the arrival of the package at EPS in Miami to arrival of the package at the EPS office in Sosua I get an email telling me where it is..
You receive an email from EPS,when it arrives in Fla,when it is "in the air,when it is in Customs,when it is in their warehouse,and when it is available for pickup.
Encargo Pac also has an email notification service. I agree with Windeguy. As a former user of EPS, Encargo Pac does the same thing and costs less. AND- Encargo Pac delivers right to your door at no expense. They call you to find out a convenient delivery time, and deliver the package to you- no matter how big or small- at no extra cost.Thanks for mentioning the email, CC, I should have included that myself.
