Receiving packages with depositing option (The Swiss Post)

I have a question regarding the option that Die Post offers for delivering packages - to deposit them somewhere in the building e.g. near the letter box etc. Does it work only for apartment buildings where the main entrance is never locked or does the postman has got access to the building?

Re: Depositing packages (The Swiss Post)

Do you mean with Pick@home service or something else?

With Pick@home you can say where the package is and if you do not leave it outside then the postman will ring and you have to hand it over. The postman does not have a key to all buildings as far as I know.

I think "letter box protected against weather" mean that the package will be deposited outside under the letterboxes, on condition that it's dry (e.g protected against the elements by a porch).

Choose "at the stairs" if you want your deliveries left in the entrance hall. Where I live, the postman rings all the doorbells until someone buzzes him in, then leaves all the packets in the hallway. He doesn't have a pass key.

Ok then indeed you just choose where you want them deposited. If you have a sheltered area the postman will leave it there. If you put you want them inside, someone will need to open the door. I would assume that if no one does, package would not be delivered.
