  • Amazon Hub Locker

    as usual, when something new comes along, I'm generally one of the last to find out about it .... for the last few years we've found is becoming more and more complicated to receive Amazon orders while traveling ..... most of the campgrounds we frequent while spending the winter in Texas will only accept packages from UPS or FedEx (will not accept any from the USPS) and charge $5 to $10 a package to do so ..... most of the rural Post Offices will not accept packages shipped to General Delivery that are shipped by UPS or FedEx .... a couple of days ago we learned about Amazon's Hub Locker network .... part of their motivation in creating the system is motivated by areas where packages are prone to be stolen .... to tryout this program we ordered a set of filters for our camper's RO water filtration system on Jan 9th and picked the Hub Locker where we wanted it shipped .... during the morning of the 11th we received an email saying our package was there and available for pickup .... we are very pleased with this transaction and can recommend it without reservation .... link for finding a Hub Locker near where you want something shipped

    we are getting ready to head out to pick up another Amazon order at their local Hub Locker .... this system works so well for us that we've already located the one near the campground where we will be after leaving Lake Conroe

          from what I've learned, Amazon has Lockers (something like a safety deposit box) where they will drop packages for folks to come by and pickup later .... since the upswing in packages being stolen off of porches, they have contracted with various businesses receive packages and hold them for a limited time .... the one we use in Willis, TX is in a G&C store, the one in Columbus, TX is in a drug store
