a parcel delivery from Greece to Cyprus, any ideas?

Sometimes I buy from an on-line shop some goods. The nearest warehouse of the company is in Greece. I have been trying to find a shipping company to get the goods from Greece to Cyprus and even North Cyprus for quite a while.
The problem is
I cannot order my goods directly from Greece to Cyprus even to the south , First I send the goods to an address in Greece ( I need it) and after that I have to send it to an address in Cyprus ( preferably to the North).

I tried to do it via Turkey, it is time and money consuming and twice my parcels got lost.

I tried to contact shipping companies in the South, they tell me to use post , I cannot.

I am sure there is a way out but at the moment it is a puzzle for me. Does anybody know?

PS DHL is very expensive.

Yes, that would be the easiest way!

But I am not sure I can do it.

I sent a message to a post office in Greece, the reply was they did not work that way.

I make an order from my on-line shop to an address in Greece
then from this address my parcels should be sent to an address of a shipping company
and the shipping company will send to Cyprus.

I used to do it but shipping from England .
I sent my parcels to the address of a shipping company , then they sent it to me. It worked very well but with Brexit coming I have to find a different way and it is cheaper to sent parcels from Greece to Cyprus,

I have been trying to find this easier and shorter way to deliver my parcels for quite a long time. I am sure it exits)))) but so far I do not discover it))))

That is why I need help!

I often order things from overseas including Greece, delivered via normal post straight to a PO Box in the south, small parcels, letters etc can be collected from the Post Office at the top of Ledra Street, larger parcels (and anything that has customs due) goes to the Prodromos parcel office
about ten minutes drive

a PO Box costs 25 Euro a year and all you need to open one is your passport

Thank you Molli, but it is not my case .



I cannot order from Greece to Cyprus directly. First it should go to a Greek address and then to Cyprus.

The post office does not do it.

Marisa, it may be that you are wanting to buy specialized items, and so your choice of online shops is extremely limited, but a huge range of online shops will happily ship goods worldwide!

Perhaps it might be beneficial to look for shops which are more obliging

For instance, a lot of shops have online stores based on eBay (you don't have to bid in an auction, you just buy it at the stated price), and while some of them may restrict the areas to which they ship, a lot are happy to ship goods anywhere in the World.
