If you are a Natural Person and there is no contract signed between you and FAN Courier, you should go to one of FAN Courier's working points along with the AWB in question, the packing list and your I.D.
If you are a Legal Person and you do not work contract-based with FAN Courier, you need to send a request via e-mail, at contcolector@fancourier.ro.

8. I wish to change the delivery address. Could I still receive my shipment today?

The delivery address can be changed, but rerouting towards a new address is considered a new shipment with an average term of 24 hours. So, a rerouted shipment will not be delivered in the same day.

9. I bought something online, but the product I received does not match what I ordered. What should I do?

FAN Courier takes over a sealed parcel from the sender (the online shop) and delivers it to the consignee. So, FAN Courier is only responsible for the shipment transport, the content is not its responsibility. If there are discrepancies between the product you ordered and the one you received, we recommend you to contact the online shop from which you bought the product.

10. I ordered something online, but I want to check the content of the parcel before I pay, in order to make sure it is what I ordered. Could I do that?

As we stated before, FAN Courier takes over a sealed parcel from the sender (the online shop) and delivers it to the consignee. The opening and the content checking of the parcel before confirmation and implicitly, before paying the cash on delivery or the shipment charge, are not allowed.
The exception is the Check On Delivery option, which offers you the opportunity to open and check the content of the received parcel, but without having the possibility to test the quality of the product inside.
The option is chargeable and can only be selected and paid by the sender.

11. How long does it take for you to send me the Cash on Delivery you collected for me?

For Collecting Account type shipments, the bank transfer will be made within 2 business days after collection, while for the sums delivered in cash, the shipment will be made the next business day.

12. What does “Packing list” mean?

The "Packing List" represents the list of the products inside your parcel: naming, description, product code and value. The document is necessary if you are a Natural Person and you wish to send a shipment that has a declared value, cash on delivery or both.

13. What does "Declared value" mean? How does it help me?

If you choose to fill in the "Declared Value" field, you will pay an additional 1% of the value of the sent item, and in case of damage or loss you will be 100% compensated. Please, be advised! The insurance does not exclude proper packaging.

14. How should I pack? Do you offer packaging?

In order for your package to be adequately protected during transport, it is very important that you follow the packaging recommendations (see here). More than that, you can buy cardboard envelopes and boxes of different sizes in any FAN Courier working point.

15. Until what time I could place a pick-up order by phone?

The maximum hours for placing a phone order are 19:00 for Bucharest and 16:00 for the rest of the country, but the shipment must be ready when the courier comes to pick it up.

16. I ordered something online, I received an AWB number, but I cannot find it in your system. Why is that?

Your parcel was not picked up by the courier and the AWB is not in our database because it was not scanned yet. You will find the shipment in the system once the parcel is picked up from the sender.
