Instabox and Instabox - yes, it can be a bit confusing.

The transport company Instabox, delivers their parcels to local pick-up boxes, which are also called Instabox.

The instaboxes will be further explained further down - but first about the transport company Instabox.

Instabox is a Swedish freight and logistics company that was founded in 2015, but later has taken the Nordic countries by storm!

In 2020 they started to cross the borders, and deliver to Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.

With their large network and many haulers, they ensure that the parcels are delivered with great speed and will reach the customers as fast as possible.

Uncomplicated shipping, that is the slogan for Instabox, when you choose them to carry out the transport of your shipments.

They strive to make freight as uncomplicated as even possible.

Instabox wishes to tap in on solutions for the present climate issues, they constantly work on finding sustainable and long term solutions, while still benefiting the customers financially.

What is an Instabox?

An instabox is a red box, which can be found many places around the bigger cities, it is those boxes where the carrier delivers the parcels in, if the customer has chosen ‘delivery to parcelshop’ (Locker Delivery).

Instabox lockers

When the customer fills out their information in the checkout, including zip code, the customer will have the option to choose the preferred available box that the parcel can be collected from.

The parcel is retrieved with a PIN code, received via SMS by the customer. When the PIN code has been entered to the right box, the parcel can be collected. That is easy and convenient! If the customer is precented to collect the parcel, anyone with the PIN code can act as deputy.

This means that the customers do not have to wait in line in order to collect their parcels, as they collect the parcels from the boxes, whenever they have the time, and they can do it at their own pace, they just need to retrieve the parcel within three days.

The parcel is being stored in the Instaboxes for three days.

If the parcel has not been collected within the deadline, Instabox will store the parcel in their storage room for 10 days before the parcel is being returned. During the 10 days, where the parcel is being stored by Instabox, the customer has the opportunity to book a new Locker Delivery delivery.

When choosing Locker Delivery, the parcel will be delivered to one of the instabox, a pick-up point where the customer has to collect the parcel.

When Home Delivery has been booked for delivery, the parcel will be delivered to the customers address.

With Locker Return, you can book return shipments to be dropped off at an Instabox. It works as a labelless return service for your customers, as they only need to write the last four digits of the package number on the package.
