    I need to ask a small favour! :evil:

    I have ordered an item from an Innsbruck store that does not deliver outside of Austria. Its non-negotiable. Item must be picked up from the store.

    I would be super appreciative if someone reliable could pick the item up for me and forward it to me in Berlin.

    I would send you a prepaid UPS label in advance of the pick-up, that I'd ask you to print and stick onto the box when you've picked it up, and drop it at a UPS access point shop which is a couple of blocks from the store.

    If you're able to help, please send me a PM :cheers:

    Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help!!

    I’ll get Shappel Corby to give You a call. She’s good with shipping boogie boards.

    I'm willing to do it for out of pocket expenses. Personal delivery door to door.

    Thanks. Very helpful!

    It's a Playstation 5 btw. Rare as hens teeth and impossibly difficult to buy at the moment. I got lucky at Mediamarkt but in Austria not Germany and for this item, they have a strict pick-up-in-store policy, to thwart scalpers I think.

    I guess you run your own business? As a private person you have 14 days quarantine, because Tirol is a high-risk area for Germany.

    Situation resolved. I called a local UPS shop owner to discuss a suitable box for the journey and he ended up being a really nice guy. Asked him if he'd mind picking up the PS5 from the store for me and he was happy to oblige. Full service. Picked it up, packaged it, put my UPS label on, and dispatched it within an hour.
