If a package arrives with an incorrect or incomplete address (for example missing mailbox number or an unknown or misspelled name), ShiptoWorld.com will try to determine whom it belongs to. If ShiptoWorld.com is able to determine the owner of the package, it will be entered in to the correct mailbox. If the owner cannot be determined and a claim with tracking information is not provided within 10 days of the package’s arrival, the package will be liquidated.

ShiptoWorld.com is not able to refuse any selected package due to the volume of packages we receive each day.

II.16. Consolidation and Repacking
Consolidation of multiple packages into one box can save substantially on shipping costs.
ShiptoWorld.com is not responsible for items missing from a consolidated package without proof that the missing item was received by us. Accordingly, we strongly urge you to submit a special request for ShiptoWorld.com check and photograph the contents of each package upon arrival and again during consolidation to make sure all items are included. Stores make mistakes and a special request is the only way how to find out if any items are missing before they are forwarded to you. Note, however, that these special requests cannot be made for packages that have already been consolidated. Special requests must be made for individual packages before consolidation or through special requests made through the consolidation page.
Unless you request otherwise, we will remove all catalogs during consolidation. Catalogs are heavy, adding to shipping costs, and most customers want them removed.
If you believe that we have made a mistake in the consolidation, weighing or processing of any other special request, contact us and we will work to correct the mistakes.
The costs for the ShiptoWorld.com services are listed on the Site.
