What you need to give the employee at the post office when picking up your items?

government issued ID

We all know that if we need to pick up something for our own goods from a post or a courier company, we need to show our government issued IDs on which have our names, profiles and addresses or something that can identify ourselves. But do you know what "identification" you need to give if you want to receive goods for other people?

 

If you want to receive an item which is someone else's or on behalf of a home-based business and the recipient's address on the item is the same with your home address, then you just need to show your acceptable government issued ID to the employee at the local post.

 

If you want to receive an item which is someone else's, but the recipient's address on the item is not the same with your home address, then apart from one piece of acceptable government issued ID, you also need to provide a delivery notice card signed by the addressee and with your name listed as the authorized individual or a letter of authorization or legal document (such as a power of attorney) demonstrating your authority to act on the addressee’s behalf..
