  • Deutsche Post offers a service called a Garagenvertrag (literally "garage agreement" in English) to its German customers. The postman can leave packets and parcels in a specified place (such as the garage, or a neighbour's house) if the addressee is not at home to receive them. This saves the recipient a trip to the post office to pick up their mail.
