The Nearby Locker Service

The Nearby Locker service is suitable for quick exchanges of goods

The Nearby Locker service is suitable for quick exchanges of goods between consumers as well as companies. The service allows you to leave goods in any Posti Parcel Point for the recipient to pick up without having to arrange a face-to-face meeting. The service is paid online and the Parcel Point locker is opened with a Helposti code. The recipient receives the locker code by SMS and can then pick up the goods from the same Parcel Point.

The Nearby Locker differs from other Parcel Point services in terms of the storage period and the processing of returns. The Nearby Locker service is intended for quick exchanges of goods, which is why the storage period is limited to two weekdays. If the recipient does not pick up the goods from the Nearby Locker within that time, Posti will notify the sender, who then has two weekdays to pick up the returned Nearby Locker item.

If the sender then also fails to pick up the goods left in the Nearby Locker within two weekdays, Posti will forward the goods to the Suomen Löytötavarapalvelu lost&found service. The sender may claim the goods from Suomen Löytötavarapalvelu.
