We recently published news that the DHL collection service will now be handled from Hire It Trading Ltd, Çatalköy (a vehicle and tool hire company) click here for that article
The good news is that they will now also be handling TNT as well in their offices in Çatalköy and Alsancak.
Talking with Ralph Searl at their Çatalköy office he said “TNT and Fedex have merged and are now the world’s 4th largest courier service provider and this will enhance our parcel and passport capability. With DHL we had one company choice only and now with TNT we have 2 courier services we can offer our clients.
With TNT, this lets us move into international movements by container as well with full and part loads door to door including storage and it still leaves us being able to do pet transportation in our own vehicles overland.
With the new arrangements it makes customers purchasing from Ebay and Amazon and the like a better prospect and for general shipping we have far greater selection of options to suit our customer needs and for example with eBay etc when buying an article online, they click on TNT as the courier and give our Çatalköy office details and we clear the item when it arrives in TRNC and they pick it up from us and pay the handling and duty costs.”
The Hire It service options of course includes passport renewals and when they are due to be renewed you need to complete the paperwork online and then take the document and passport to Hire It who will arrange for it to be collected and sent to the UK by DHL or TNT. The new and old passports are returned separately and will either be delivered to your address or to Hire It Çatalköy for you to collect from their premises.
Please note that Hire It are not responsible for the completion of the passport renewal form and payment, they provide the safe route for return by the DHL or TNT service, so it is important to complete everything correctly before taking to Hire It.
